My husband and I stayed here with my visiting parents, the price was ok but it lacked the specialness that you expect at a B&B. Mike was nice and checked us in, no welcoming drinks or snacks at check in. The AC had to be turned on and set. The rooms were nice and clean and period looking. I must... More

Innkeeper Mike was very accommodating in making our arrangements, including a change in the number of guests. However when we checked in, Mike asked for payment up front (the abruptness startled me) and the welcome was best described as business-like. There were no welcoming amenities, such as bottled water, drinks or other refreshments. The guest refrigerator was absolutely bare. It... More

We had a fabulous time. Great location and quiet. Breakfasts fit for a king. Charming host. Our first breakfast included a portabello mushroom streak with a grilled tomato slice and scrambled eggs on top. Very fitting since we were in the mushroom capital of the world. Thank you Mike for a wonderful time.

We loved staying at this home. Mike was the perfect host and helped us plan our activities for the weekend. The breakfast was yummy.The house was lovely with plenty of room for everyone and beautiful furnishings.A perfect getaway for 3 generations of ladies.

Online booking is a *request* only, not a reservation (which I fully understood at time submitting online form). Confirmation email will say they'll be in touch, but don't count on it. It took me two additional phone calls, over the course of almost a week, to get a response, only to hear they wouldn't take my Saturday-night-only reservation in the... More

We stayed two nights, to see the Longwoood Gardens light show, and nearby Brandywine River Museum, and Hagley Museum. Mike is a fantastic innkeeper, and an excellent cook. Bed was very comfortable, rooms quiet, and reading in the chairs on either side of the fireplace was a special treat. Great location and excellent value.

This is a charming Edwardian home, beautifully maintained, extremely clean, and in an excellent location. The street it sits on is quiet, but within walking distance to Kennett Square, and only a short drive to Longwood Gardens and Winterthur. The innkeeper, Mike, is a very attentive host, and works hard to make sure that his guests are comfortable. The breakfasts... More

My elderly mother and I were visiting Longwood Gardens and chose the Bancroft because of its location. It is indeed only a couple of miles from the garden, and an easy drive. After reading these reviews (with one exception), I contacted the innkeeper to negotiate our visit. Our stay was exactly as I expected. We had negotiated the price in... More

B&B was clean, well laid out. We used it during the week for one night after a visit to Talula's Table in Kennett Square. The property was nice, the facilities nice, but the inn keeper, Mike, made this place very good. He was very knowledgeable about the area, about the history, activities. Mike also went out of his way to... More

We visit my numerous family in Kennett Square several times a year and over the years have tried several local hostelries. Now, however, we always stay at Bancroft Manor because we are always happy there. Mike Snyder has made Bancroft Manor our home away from home. We love the convenient location to the whole Brandywine valley; we love the woodwork... More
