Fantastic first floor carriage house residence!
Great, renovated carriage house residence only a 4 block walk to downtown Kennett Square a fabulous, quiet, idyllic town. Loved my stay and wished I’d booked more time, very close to Philadelphia. Residence fully equipped and adorable. Great food at Portobello’s restaurant, reservations a must. Christmas parade the Friday after Thanksgiving was a terrific event.

An Oasis in the wonderful town of Kennett Square
We have visited the Brandywine Valley/Kennett Square area in the past, but this was the first time we stayed right in Kennett Square. The location was perfect (a short walk into the wonderful center of town), our home was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, we had parking in front of the door, and the small touches that make a week's stay a "home away from home" were all present. There are wonderful restaurants (take out from Talula's Table), The Country Butcher and The Produce Place (which rivals big city markets) and the best ice cream you will have (from La Michoacana Homemade Ice Cream). There were pleasant walks in all directions from our home, and we took day trips to some of our favorite places in the area (the antique shops down the road in Chadds Ford, Strasburg, Doylestown and the Michener Art Museum, Wilmington and the Delaware Art Museum, and Oxford and its Amish market). There are many more great experiences for first time visitors--Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, Nemours, Hagley Museum, Lancaster, New Hope. All in all, we plan to stay there again when we visit Kennett Square and I don't think you will find a better place to stay in this beautiful region of PA. Stay right in Kennett Square and you will discover a surprisingly cosmopolitan, friendly and successful small town that has the ingredients for a wonderful holiday.

Highly recommend
This was one of the best rentals we’ve stayed in. The owners put a lot of attention into details and provided everything needed for a comfortable stay. Communication was excellent, and they know how to treat guests. Space was very clean. Kids enjoyed the board games provided. Thank you Matthew and David!

Super cute, clean & convenient
This was the perfect little place to stay, not too far from other places we wanted to visit and walking distance to Kennett square. We had no idea prior to arriving that Kennett square is the mushroom capital of the world! It's a great, quaint little town. All amenities you could need and very clean! Thanks for sharing your carriage house with us! Downfall: one vehicle parking and the on street parking all around is by meter &/or permit so the second vehicle ended up being a huge hassle.
