“A Sweet Destination for a Quiet Weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

The Fairville Inn is a lovely B and B in a convenient location near the top attractions in the Brandywine Valley. It's just down the road from Winterthur, Longwood Gardens and the Brandywine River Museum (Wyeth family well represented). Rooms are comfortable and very clean. The owners try hard to please, but special requests can overwhelm them a bit, so don't take hotel expectations along.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are large and sunny.

Innkeeper506, Owner at Fairville Inn Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, 27 February 2012
While we greatly appreciate the nice comments this reviewer posted about the Fairville Inn, we would like to address the comment about the innkeepers being "overwhelmed" with special requests. Although we do not know what this guest requested that we were unable to provide, we are a Bed and Breakfast Inn and do not pretend to offer the 24-hour amenities provided by concierge services at 5-star hotels. But most bed and breakfast guests know and understand this. We work with guests every day to attend to their needs, including special requests. Whether a guest requests wine or champagne, special flowers, chocolate-dipped strawberries, other chocolate treats, a cheese/fruit platter, an in-room massage, restaurant reservations, a breakfast tailored to meet dietary needs, or something else -- we will do all that we can to make it happen if we have advance notice of what the guest desires.

The facility and grounds are beautiful. The staff and Innkeepers are very pleasant and very helpful. Breakfast was somewhat disappointing in that the food was nothing special.

The Fairville Inn is a wonderful b&b in the Brandywine area.

I needed to be out early in the morning, before breakfast was served, and the owner was kind enough to bring a coffee maker to my room, as well as leave cereal and milk in the kitchen. He also invited a friend (who was staying with friends) to join me the next morning for breakfast. This kind of hospitality is what makes this Inn stand out from so many others.

I did stay for the breakfast one morning and it was wonderful. The rooms are clean and cheery... A small refrigerator in the room would have been nice.

I look forward to staying at The Fairville Inn on my next trip to the Brandywine area.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Carriage House... room 4... Very cheery.

We travelled to Brandywine Valley in PA and stayed at the Fairville Inn. Our room was a suite which was lovely, extremely clean. It would be nice had there been a small refrigerator and coffee maker. The breakfast was just enough - not too much - not too little. The owners were present and very friendly. We especially like Ozzie the dog. Fairville Inn is a great place to explore the area such as Longwood Gardens, Nemours and anything DuPont.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a GPS. Getting around at night on unfamiliar roads was difficult at best - Defin...

We are repeat visitors to Fairville Inn with stays during the tenure of the last two owners. We gathered here for a weekend birthday bash coming from Pasadena CA, NYC, and the Washington DC area. We had rooms in the Main House and in the Carriage House. Each was splendid in its furnishings particularly the comfy beds. The suites in the outlying houses are ideal for small family/group sittings.
Breakfast is smashingly good and fresh including baked sweets, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, and a choice of two or three hot mains.
The owners and staff alike are gracious, helpful--delights to meet.
The reviews in the New York Times and Southern Living in their compliments to the Inn.
And it is close at hand to Longwood Gardens and several wonderful museums.

Our room was charming and beautifully decorated with a fireplace. We had a porch off the room with a view of their property. Breakfast was very good and our hostess was very friendly. The Inn is in a great location because there is a lot to do in the area.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are upstairs, so if that is a problem be sure to request a downstairs room.

The place is simply lovely and very easy to get to. However, the best thing about this place are the innkeepers and their staff! They give new meaning to the phrase, "service at the highest level"! They go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant, but without imposing. The fresh breakfast is very tasty and you have choices! I've been twice this year, once with my sister and mother, and once with a close friend. The reasons for being there were different, but the environment, beautiful rooms, and peaceful environment made each visit extra special. Everything I experienced the first time was still consistently outstanding the second time around. I just can't imagine who could possibly be disappointed staying at this beautiful place with beautiful rooms, in a very serene setting, but not far from great restaurants, shopping, and key attractions.

Room Tip: ALL rooms in the Carriage and Spring houses are very nice. Did not see Main House rooms. Both suit...
