BRANDYWINE VALLEY BED & BREAKFAST, JUST 20 MINUTES FROM PHILADELPHIA
Located just five minutes from Longwood Gardens and 10 minutes from Wilmington, DE, The Pennsbury Inn Bed & Breakfast is a lovely and comfortable country B&B in the Brandywine Valley, with seven sumptuous bedrooms and private baths, large living room with huge open fireplace, library, music room and private conference room on 8 acres of landscaped grounds.
Built mostly in 1714 and 1749 on land purchased from William Penn's commissioners in 1681, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
An historically prominent Bed & Breakfast in the heart of the Brandywine Valley offering exceptional accommodations.
The Pennsbury Inn is situated on eight acres of sculptured grounds bordered by woodland trails, offering privacy for special events such as wedding receptions, anniversary dinners, bridal showers, corporate meetings and catered parties. We are located in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, only minutes from Delaware and the city of Philadelphia.
On acreage purchased from Wm. Penn's Commissioners in the 17th Century, Pennsbury Inn's original dwelling house, erected in 1714 of Brandywine Blue Granite rubble stone, was enlarged mid-century by a stone addition of surpassing proportions with the front facade clad in hand-molded Flemish Bond brick. A 19th Century clapboard extension housed both coachman quarters and beehive bake oven. A 20th Century addition contains a garden view dining area.
The Inn proudly presents a blend of colonial heritage and country elegance. It is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
We look forward to hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to meet with you and show you the Inn.
