Exceptional hospitality. Nicely restored historic home. Great room and amenities. Close to businesses in the historic district and area attractions. Breakfast was more then expected served with detail to nutritional needs and so satisfying.

We had a very pleasant overnight at this B&B in the heart of Kennett Square. Michael was most hospitable and Frieda made us a wonderful breakfast, paying careful attention to my special dietary needs. Great location put us very close to Longwood Gardens and walking distance to several fine restaurants.

I'm confused by the recent post about the skimpy breakfast. I was just there (November 16-18, 2015) and the morning meal was very generous. We skipped lunch both days! I suppose someone who prefers a big hotel buffet might be disappointed, but that shouldn't be expected at a small, private b&b. We had fruit, a pastry and a hot entrée... More

The room was very attractive and the beds were quite cozy. The whole house was beautifully appointed with great attention to detail. The breakfasts were excellent and served in a pretty sun room. Michael, our host, was friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area. We were able to walk into town each night for dinner. Longwood Gardens is about 5... More

Charming host and home. Quiet location and only 2-3 short blocks away from many good restaurants and shopping in Kennett Square. Longwood Gardens is just a few minutes away and a must see for you visit!

We have stayed at Bancroft Manor several times and just love it! Mike, the owner, is friendly and welcoming and the rooms are spacious and clean. While relaxing in the porch swing in the evening, we met some other vacationers and had an enjoyable evening of conversation. The best little ice cream shop is within walking distance, as well as...

Although we had lived in nearby Philadelphia, we weren't aware how charming Kennett Square is! The Bancroft Manor is a several block walk from town, and is a lovely place to stay while there. Mike is a chatty and helpful host, and made us a lovely breakfast featuring local mushrooms. (Kennett Square is the mushroom capital of the world.)

My wife and I enjoyed a quiet and relaxing night. We stayed in the "Amish" room and slept in the Murphy bed in the sunroom with the windows open. We slept great and it was fun to wake up to the sun rising and the birds chirping. For dinner we walked into town and had great paella at Byrsa. Highly... More

We booked this B&B because it was in walking distance of Kennett Square and easy drive to Longwood Gardens. First impression was okay. Nice home and okay neighborhood; however, Mike (the owner) was great and Gina made a wonderful breakfast every morning and was very sweet. Both were accommodating to my need to be gluten free. As with most B&B's,... More

I was truly pleased with my stay at the Bancroft Manor. The owner, Mike Snyder, greeted me with a smiling face and friendly smile, that makes one feel warm and very much at home. It is located on a quiet street with a super front porch with swinging porch couch and rockers, to enjoy the breeze of large trees and... More
