Mary's house is located in a quiet and pleasant area of Kennet Square set back from any road noise. The house is well detached from its neighbours with a small garden and outside sitting area. The description and photos are accurate. Mary was very welcoming and checkin process was easy. The house is used as a family home and there are all the things you would expect from a well used family home. Such as condiments and sauces in the cupboards and everything works. We very much enjoyed our stay. There are many attractive ornaments on low shelves. We were with two grandchildren, one a well behaved three year old girl and the other not yet crawling. It would not be a suitable house for boisterous boys.

We were really pleased with our stay. The house fitted our needs perfectly (4 couples), was clean and had many amenities we didn't even get to use! The location was great to the sites we wanted to see, not to mention in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. Mary was available to us for questions and made our stay very easy. Highly recommend.

There were eight in our party and we stayed for two days for my daughters graduation at University of Delaware. We had a wonderful stay. Mary's home was beautifully decorated, spacious and relaxing. The beds were super comfortable. We enjoyed the outdoor deck and landscaped grounds. There are great restaurants nearby on State Street in the town of Kennett Square and the drive to UDel was only 25 minutes. Our weekend was perfect...Thank you Mary for sharing your home with us!
