My parents and I recently chose to stay with Gilja and her beautiful Kennett House B&B. Every detail was considered at this quaint and beautifully-maintained early 20th century home... The Arts & Crafts details, the thoughtfully-prepared breakfasts and delightful "peace" ongoing in this home --all of these elements come together to provide a terrific Kennett Square experience! Each of the... More

What a gorgeous house. And unlike many of her age, the home has been updated beautifully in keeping with the original design. Huge wide window sills, lots of oak woodwork, even the inglenooks remain. It's wonderful. The Longwood Suite is artfully tucked at the top of the staircase facing the rear courtyard. It's a large bedroom and sitting room arrangement.... More

Very gentle, gracious host. Tasty breakfast promptly each morning. Good coffee. And comfortable large rooms with a queen size bed. And we even had the room without the bathroom attached, it was no big deal at all. We still had a private bathroom of our own. I would recommend to anyone. It's within walking distance of Kennett Square, a quaint... More

Very nice room, good breakfast and a friendly host made for a nice visit. We stayed in the Wyeth room which was spacious enough for two. We were impressed with the attention to detail. If you like the B & B atmosphere you will be happy here.

was greeted warmly and had a fine room. Place was kept clean. Breakfasts made to order and extremely tasty. Near the downtown area of Kennett Square.A bit price but worth for the stay. Helpful advice as to where to eat in the area.

Gilga was a wonderful host, ensuring that we were totally comfortable in our stay. She was able to accommodate our dietary preferences and made a spectacular breakfast. The house itself was a treasure, superbly clean and littered with beautiful orchids. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful historic inn! We loved all the stone, the wood, the textures, and the orchids. Downtown is a short walk away, so we parked the car and strolled to shopping and to supper. Gilja's signature French toast was delicious. The Delaware room was sunny and cozy, and we appreciated all the extra touches in the bathroom. The mattress was a... More

Innkeeper Gilja Kusano owns and operates a beautiful historic B&B within easy walking distance of the town center. The home is beautiful inside and out. The woodwork is exquisite. The furniture and decor complement the home. We stayed in the Longwood Suite for four days. That offers a bedroom, separate sitting room and ensuite bathroom. The king size bed has... More

We stayed two nights here and Gija suggested we buy our tickets to the Longwood Gardens form her and save money, (great tip). She also suggested a great restaurant and we loved it,( Portobellos). The house has been a B&B for years and when she was ready to be an inn keeper this house became available, what a coincident, (probable,... More

Deservedly the Tripadvisor Number 1 B&B in Kennett Square. Gilja is a fantastic host and prepares breakfast treats to die for. The house and its rooms are generously proportioned. We chose the Delaware Room that faces to the rear as I was uncertain about traffic noise at the front: but, having visited, I am sure that this can be discounted... More
