“Wonderful B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Our visit was a delight. The friendly, helpful innkeepers are available at all times to answer all sorts of questions and give suggestions when asked. They are wonderfully informed about the history of their 1714 house, and the local region. The house has many common rooms downstairs - comfortable, many daily newspapers provided. The gardens are extensive, beautiful and a pleasure after a day's outing. (The location is superb for visiting the major area attractions). The room we were in was comfortable and well appointed, although the road noise was noticeable when the windows were open since our room faced the road. There were evening snacks and we were presented with champagne because it was our anniversary - a graceful touch. Coffee and snacks and cold drinks are available (no cost) all day, all night. Breakfast was at the guests' convenience, not the inn-keepers (in contrast to other B&Bs when breakfast was at a fixed time or not at all). We intend to return the next time we're in the area.

Room Tip: Facing the garden is quieter.

My husband and I spent three nights at Pennsbury Inn and loved every minute of it! Our room was very clean, comfortable and luxurious. The Inn was fascinating. We loved the history, decor and all the cool little spots to sit and read or relax in. The gardens were gorgeous! The Inn Keepers are very good at what they do..they were very welcoming. The breakfasts were fantastic, they also accommodated my husbands dairy allergies with no fuss. I loved all the extra touches, the heated mugs, huge and varied breakfasts, lovely sweet snacks at bedtime, spacious umbrellas to borrow, refillable water bottles with available filtered water, wi-fi....the perks are too many to list! Best location in the area too! So close to all the best attractions and restaurants. Can you tell we loved this place?

Room Tip: For privacy, choose the Lafayette Room. It has it's own twisty staircase lighted by electric &qu...

My boyfriend and I planned a visit to Longwood Gardens. Since that same evening we were meeting friends for dinner at the Dillworthingtown Inn, I thought it would be nice to stay at a nearby B&B. I was somewhat put off by the cluttered and slightly messy sitting room when we entered the B&B. Our innkepper was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed in the inn's largest suite, 'the Winterthur'. It was overdecorated with Christmas knicknacks but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was served, at our request, at 8:30 (before they usually serve breakfast). I thought the food was delicious and well-presented. A particular stand-out was the homemade granola.

Room Tip: For foodies who are planning to shop in nearby Kennett Square, I'd recommend the coffee and dess...

Lovely innkeepers that gave a lively tour of their historic jewel of a home- from tge wide planked, burnished floors to the tasteful decor and dream kitchen, they make you feel completely at home.

Really enjoyed staying at the Pennsbury Inn! Cheryl and Chip are great! They greeted us so warmly and remembered it was my boyfriend's birthday and said happy birthday even before I could remind them! Chip's historical tour of the Inn is a MUST! The turn down service was adorable and they even set out a piece of cake/candle to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday! I look forward to going back in the spring time when we can enjoy the beautiful grounds! Thanks for a great stay!

Stayed at the Pennsbury right after Christmas. This place was unreal--I love old history and Chadd's Ford has it. Chip gave an extremely interesting tour after an extremely good breakfast. The Pennsbury embodies everything I love about Revolutionary history in this part of PA. Our room was set up so well, we slept like babies.

Only drawback was Brandywine battlefield was closed for some reason...of course NOT the fault of the Pennsbury! We will stay here next time we're in the area, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Face the garden/back yard.

I decided to travel Brandywine Valley area for a short getaway trip from NYC, and made my choice to stay at Pennsbury Inn after seeing the reviews here. I have to say it was an excellent experience! We stayed at Winterthur, which had a great view of the backyard, and the room itself was absolutely gorgeous. "It's a piece of art," as my girlfriend put it. Indeed, the room itself is worth everything, needless to say that it's also so close to a number of attractions in the area. Chip was very friendly, and provided us with a wonderful and delicious breakfast. I definitely look forward to our next visit in the area and stay at Pennsbury.
