My wife and I just spent three nights in the Pennsbury Inn – and we loved it! I’m a big fan of B&B’s and have been to quite a few. The Pennsbury Inn is my favorite one so far. The house is amazing – a real historical treasure dating from Revolutionary times. Like many historical homes, it has been built in stages over the years so it has lots of interesting rooms, each with its own character. Chip and Cheryl do a wonderful job of making you feel welcome and providing information on the area. Wireless service was flawless, with two routers providing good coverage over the entire house.
We were there in late November, and really enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts in front of a cozy fire. Our room was lovely, and even though it faced the road it was quiet.
Chip went out of his way to ask about breakfast preferences and the food was interesting, plentiful and well prepared. Fresh bread, coffee, tea and hot chocolate are available starting at 7:30, and breakfast is served until 10.
If you prefer a standardized, predictable experience, a hotel might be more to your liking. But if you like history, a bit of serendipity, a home-like environment and warm hosts – you’d be hard pressed to find a better place to stay. And, if, like me, you have a soft spot for dogs, you will love Tucker. I spent several very happy hours in front of the fire with Tucker curled up on my lap. I think that’s the part I’ll miss the most!
