“Killer French Toast and a Great Bed!”
Reviewed September 20, 2005

This place is a winner and one of our all time favorites! Historic, yes. Ambiance and decor, yes. A REALLY good breakfast, yes. We spent 4 nights and would still be there if we had our druthers.

Cheryl and Chip are excellent hosts and the place is truly comfortable. Featherbeds, nice linens and well appointed bathrooms. Marvelous coffee and a comprehensive tea selection. Some of the stairs can be a bit tricky for older folks with limited mobility. The gardens are lovely even when past their fall prime. I am of the opinion that they should give lessons to other B&B operators in how to do it right.

Best extras: good reading lamps and bedtime snacks

My wife and I recently spent two nights at the Pennsybury Inn and we were most pleased. Having stayed at about 50 B&Bs during the past 7 years, we were most impressed with the gardens despite the rather dry summer.

Inside, our room (John Marshall) was attractive and comfortable. We had a private bath a few steps down the hall and our room came supplied with slippers and heavyweight terry robes. Although other inns indicate that they have a "turndown" service, this was the first that not only turned down the bed, there was also an attractively set (and, very tasty) "sweet treat" on each of our two nights. The room also included a small but adequate TV, pen and paper, and reading lamps on BOTH sides of the bed.

Breakfast on both mornings was really very good, including a freshly baked bread, an egg dish, breakfast meat (bacon, turkey sausage), fresh fruit, and a nice selection of herbal teas.

I have since learned never to take any of these elements for granted and was most pleased with our stay. Cheryl and Chip (the owners) have paid close attention to detail and we plan to return in the late spring next year.

Conveniently located for all Chester County/Brandywine attractions. House dates back to early 1700s, so has a wonderful sense of history; more recent additions blend well. Lots of common areas for guests; beautiful gardens in back. Close to a busy road at front of inn, but thick stone walls muffle traffic noises. My room was spacious, with a sitting area and Palladian window looking out to gardens.
