I loved the home...it was beautiful, spotless and comfortable. Gilja was very sweet and breakfast was nice. I was a little disappointed in Kennett Square, nice quaint town, but not much to see...only a handful of shops and restaurants...I thought there was more. Luckily we were going to Longwood Gardens, which is only a few minutes away. I'm sure there...

Thanks you for an excellent stay. The bed was extremely comfortable, the house lovely and interesting, the breakfast was amazing. The Longwood tour was beautiful with all the decorations and the fountain light show was great. The dinner gift certificate allowed us to have an excellent dinner at Kyoto's. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys sushi. Thank...

We had a pleasant stay at the Kennett House. I booked the Brandywine room without realizing that its private bath is in the hallway. It was fine because robes were supplied by Gilja, Very convenient to everything and walking distance to town.

My husband & I arrived at Kennett Square after travelling from Brussels where my husband had had his wallet stolen, which included his drivers license. Gilja was wonderful, couldn't have been more helpful & insisted on being our chauffer until a replacement license was received. Gilja is like a friend & treats everyone as an honoured guest. Breakfasts were the...

Stayed for a weekend after a Friday evening wedding. Gilja was concerned about our arrival time and called us en route to make sure we would have time to change before the wedding. She is the ultimate B&B owner. Lovely rooms, spotless, large front porch. Breakfast was a delight each morning. The fresh fruit was beautifully presented and she gave...

Our hostess, Gilja, runs a perfect B&B in this convenient location when visiting Longwood Gardens and the entire Brandywine area. The 1910 house is beautiful, inside and out, and provides a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are large and comfortable with excellent bathrooms. Breakfast is served at your convenience and is a truly full meal and beautifully prepared. I,...

My boyfriend and I celebrated our Anniversary at the Kennett House Bed & Breakfast via a Groupon deal. The KH B&B was very quiet and charming place to stay. Kennett Square is an old historic place that has a lot of charm and near many attractions, such as Longwood Gardens. The housekeeper, Gildij, was very nice (although she didn't readily...

From the moment we walked through the front door and was greeted warmly by Gilja, we knew this would be a very special B&B and it was. The rooms are impeccable with luxury beds; linens, towels & robes. We all had peaceful, comfortable nights' sleep during our stay. Breakfasts were superb, delicious, fresh local produce.

One of the best B & Bs we've ever stayed in. We were in the Longwood Suite.....A quaint room with a comfortable bed, cable TV, separate sitting room with a couch, and a good shower (no bath tub). What made this stay really great, was the breakfast served each morning by our host, Gilja in a nicely appointed dining area....
