Friend and I headed to beautiful Pennsylvania for her birthday and garden hopping. Loved Longwood Garden and terrific Brandywine Museum. Not so much Pennsbury Inn. Felt like it needed some serious updating. Nice garden, average breakfast. Could have used a bit more air conditioning in our room and the location on a busy street might affect some folks sleep.

Cheryl G, Owner at The Pennsbury Inn, responded to this review

I so wish that Lynn had shared some insight on how to update a c.1714 inn without destroying its history, because I feel that we have to be very cautious in that regard. Part of its history is the location on the "road to Baltimore:, which has always been a busy road, hence the many buffers and the "sound" machine... More

This was our second time to stay at the Pennsbury Inn -this time with our 10 year old granddaughter. Our stay at the inn was like experiencing a living history lesson, and the expansive grounds and Tucker, the dog, were wonderful attractions for her.

This was a lovely historic house that was very quaint...if you could see it. There was a stuffed animal or object in every corner and on top of every surface. Too much furniture to appreciate the lines of its own architecture. There was no visual freedom when you walked through. The kitchen was so cluttered, it was hard to see... More

From Cheryl: I wish I could please everyone but as tastes vary so much- it's impossible. Some, find my decor, warm, comfy and inviting and others messy and cluttered.

We stayed in the suite, addressed as the "Honeymoon Suite". Nice enough, rose petals on the bed and floor, chocolates. Special therapedic adjustable mattress didn't work, no a/c, just two windows would open in this top floor A-frame room, and we asked for extra soaps, etc. in the bathroom that we didn't receive.

Our recent stay has blown away all my original expectations of this establishment. Having stayed in the Pennsbury Inn made us feel truly priviledged. Everything from the exceptional service to the rustic atmosphere of the three-century old house with all its historic artifacts were an attraction in themselves, in my opinion. The room was cozy and the beds comfy. Fresh... More
