Just spent a night at Pennsbury Inn, only negative was climbing the original stairs (narrow and winding) to the Gen. Lafayette room. Chip, the host, was welcoming and accommodating, ably assisted by Tucker, his rescued shelter dog. 4 acres of magnificent gardens surround the building, and while on a busy road, our room was quiet, with no traffic noise coming in. Bed was comfortable, room whimsically decorated, and private bath was adequate, which is fine for a building that old. (Yes, it was indoors.) Magazines and newspapers throughout public spaces, plenty of seating in various rooms. Sodas/water available at all hours. Communal dining for breakfast. Located very near Longwood Gardens, across the road from an antique center, and convenient to numerous restaurants, I would recommend Pennsbury to any and all who enjoy B&B's.
