Absolutely fabulous weekend...our hostess, Gilja, could not have been warmer or more accommodating. We stayed in the Delaware Room, which is actually a two room suite including the enclosed former sleeping porch; it was cozy and just large enough for the two of us and our stuff for three days. The bed linens were sumptuous and the decor is wonderful. The breakfast was outstanding and included fresh fruit in season and an omelet made from fresh local mushrooms. The building itself is an outstanding examply of early 20th Century Architechture, and we became intrigued. As we checked out, we hated to leave and gave Gilja a big hug and told her we'd definitely be back. We highly recommend the Kennett House; don't just stay one night, you won't regret it!
