We stayed at Kennett House for two days while visiting Longwood Gardens. It is a beautiful old home converted to a B&B. It has been beautifully preserved and modernized without compromising its charm and grace. The hostess was as nice and helpful as one could possibly expect, the breakfasts were delicious and nutritious and the room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is a lovely common room at the top of the stairs with a table, refrigerator with free water and soda and shelf of complimentary snacks that is perfect for going over brochures and planning the day's travels. Longwood, Winterthur and other sites are within a very short drive and downtown restaurants are within easy walking distance. We could not have been happier with our stay and would readily go back. Indeed, we hated to leave!
