Hospitality abounds with a hearty greeting and initial orientation tour from our host and his trusty companion dog Tucker. The 4 acres of gardens with ponds , flowers and relaxation spits with well situated chairs for contemplation of the surroundings makes this a most enjoyable place to stay. Nearby historical Longwood Gardens is unrivaled for a delightful and absorbing visit... More

The owners are wonderful people, property could definitely use some updating. The sleep number bed in the room was old and didn't work. Was either hard as a rock or slept in a soft taco- not comfortable and prevented sleep. Lots of cobwebs on the side of the house outside at the front door on porch when you first walk... More

Golly Gee, I'm not sure where to start. I'm glad that you liked Chip and I, at least. There's an old saying that "you can't please all of the people all of the time" and I guess this proves it. I'm sorry that you didn't ask for help with the bed as it's quirky, but does work. Thank you for... More

Truly enjoyed our stay in so many ways. Ask Cheryl to show you the gardens and enjoy hearing how they were created. Or just spend time wandering. DO wander through all the rooms and the house.

You're absolutely right about the sign, but the township regulates the size and color, which is why we give very specific directions on our confirmations. Perhaps you forgot to read yours. Chip was delighted that you gave him credit for the cooking as I do most of it in the wee hours of the morning. He has learned to do... More

Great place to stay. Very warm and welcoming. Breakfast is homemade! There is a lot to see in the area and the owners are a wealth of knowledge. Totally amazing experience for our anniversary. If you are into history, this is the place. Longwood gardens is a must. If you like steak then eat at the Brandywine Prime.

This grounds of the this inn are stunning. The innkeepers truly have a green thumb and know how to create a sanctuary for those seeking solitude and peace. The Inn itself is stately but quite cluttered and dusty. This doesn't appeal to us so that was uncomfortable. Our room was also uncomfortable because it was too hot. I believe the... More

A lovely and restful stay in a most authentic Inn from 1714. Gentle warm innkeepers and hospitable staff made my experience welcoming. Cozy fireplaces, nooks and crannies filled with artwork, sculpture and an ambience like waking up in a scene from "Rip Van Winkle". Wonderful!

We really enjoyed our two nights at Pennsbury Inn. They were very accommodating to our party of six and fed us delicious breakfasts. We were there during winter, but the grounds look to be beautiful in the warmer months. During the winter, though, you can enjoy sitting by the fire of the kitchen hearth. The Inn is lovely and historic,... More

First time staying at a B&B. Hesitant when we first entered, very nice welcome reception from Cheryl who showed us room and amenities which never stopped coming. Room was warm,cozy and very clean. Breakfast served by Chip prepared by Cheryl was delicious with a variety each day. Tucker added to the warmth of this very enjoyable stay. Highly recommend
