From the comfort of the bed, amenities in the room, breakfast, and hospitality of Gilja, you'll never find another like it! We were not able to eat in the town due to a celebration, but the area is quiet and peaceful for walking around the house and has quite a few local establishments in the downtown area. Discounted tickets for... More

The Kennett House is serene, and walkable, through the square. The home is beautiful and Gilja is an amazing host. I stayed for five days during Christmas. The Deleware room was charming and cozy. Breakfast was bountiful with mushroom omelettes, french toast and fresh fruit. I would like to return in the summer and enjoy the wrap around porch. I... More

This is a very nice BnB in a neat little town that we visited after touring Winterthur. We stayed in the large Longwood Suite. Very good king bed with a cute, but small bathroom. I suspect the size of the bathroom was dictated by the conversion to a BnB from an early 1900s home. Of course, there are lots of... More

We stayed there two nights in October--terrific location, just 2-3 blocks from Kennett Square, PA, which a story in itself. Kennett House B&B is a well constructed "fortress", a model of early 1900 built-to-last construction. We stayed in the Delaware Room, which had its own sitting room, very roomy, yet cozy and comfortable. Gilja, the owner, is very warm, welcoming,... More

This lovely restored property is a short walk to the town center and very close to Longwood Gardens, just up the main road. Gilja is a wonderful hostess and prepared delicious French toast and mushroom omelets. The room was cozy and quiet and with room to put our "stuff" without compromising charm. Highly recommend!

Gilja is the most welcoming owner! She greets you warmly and treats you as family. The rooms are spacious and priced well for the area. You can walk to several nearby restaurants and shops. Great stay for the Kennett Brew Fest (October 11). You can walk to the Brew Fest and to town after. Saved the Best for last: your... More

The Kennett House Bed and Breakfast is just the sort of place you expect to find in the country only this is located close enough to walk to the quaint town of Kennett Square. The magnificent wood adorning this historic and beautiful building make a stay just right. It is homey, the owner is charming, and a stay is just... More

Marvelous old house with gorgeous and unique spaces. beautiful woodwork everywhere. Wonderful bathroom with many thoughtful amenities and space for us girls to put our 'stuff'. That isn't often found in these old homes. Thank You Gilja ! Charming breakfast room, everything you could want is beautifully available. The fruit presentation was very special and delicious, as was the entree.... More

This us a wonderful example if the Pennsylvania stone house- thick walls, big porch, many small rooms for living space, fireplaces, very straightforward in design. It's in- town location is a blessing (walk to restaurants and shops) and curse (traffic noise from street). They did provide a noise-blocking devise that was helpful. We had French toast made with French bread... More

We just returned from a delightful stay at Kennett House in celebration of our 46th anniversary. It was a wonderful experience! Gilja provided the warmest of hospitality, not to mention a most delicious breakfast! This was by far the cleanest and best equipped B&B we've ever stayed at. Everything we needed was there....but best of all was the quiet and... More
