we were fortunate enough to stay at this charming B & B while visiting the Brandywine Valley. Longwood B & B is centrally located, a very easy drive to all of the attractions we were interested in visiting - the Gardens, Winterthur & the Brandywine River Museum. Our host, John, is very personable & very knowledgeable about the area.
We stayed in the Brandywine Suite - spacious & well appointed - even a vanity for makeup application. One caution - the bed is REALLY high - they do have cute steps to get up on the bed, but I worried about stumbling over them in the middle of the night.
One complaint about the room - the hair dryer is ANCIENT!!! Mounted on the wall, like a vacuum cleaner type sound. With only 3 rooms on the property, a plug in hair dryer is easy enough to have in each room
The reason I didn't give this inn 5 stars is the kitchen was woefully empty - didn't seem to have any snacks available, other than at the lovely breakfast time. Their ad says the cookie jar is never empty, well, except, it was. And no beverages of any kind, other than hot tea or decaf coffee via a Keurig machine. Bottled water or soft drinks would have been very welcome. Wine would be even more welcome!! Again, with only 3 rooms in the Inn, this would not have broken the bank!
Breakfast was delicious & nicely presented - baked goods, fresh fruit & a hot course - all quite ample!
With just a few tweaks, our stay would be perfect!
