Pretty, but more like a motel
Opinión escrita el 18 de octubre de 2022
My room was a small house off the main road. The room was delightful but no service at all. No help with my luggage, and no housekeeping in the two days that I was there. I arrived on a Wednesday night and did not know that the restaurant was closed that night. I was attending a conference at Winterthur, so I did not come in a car. But this meant that I had to get an Uber and find a restaurant. I would not have stayed there if I had known that I would have to leave the property to find food. Also, none of the windows of my ground floor room were locked. Someone came to help me (it took two of us to lock each one) but hey... a woman staying alone? There was also no chain on the door - just one lock. It was a very nice looking place, but I was not at ease. And if you don't have a car - forget it.
We've already booked another stay. What a pleasure!

Montchanin Village is pleasant and quaint, with the feeling of a 19th century hamlet. The Village has eight full-size houses with 28 uniquely-designed rooms or suites - plus the Dilwyne (check-in and common area)/Fitness Center/Spa, the School House, and Krazy Kat’s Restaurant. Even with its 11 buildings, the Village is surprisingly compact. You can walk from one end to the other in five minutes. Nearby, there are an exceptional number of lovely attractions. Within three miles are Winterthur Museum and Gardens, Hagley Museum, Delaware Museum of Nature and Science, Delaware Art Museum, and Nemours Estate and Museum. Within eight miles are Longwood Gardens and Brandywine River Museum. For new guests at the Inn: Guest Reception is just inside the turn into the Village. The parking lot is adjacent. Guest Reception is up those front stairs in Dilwyne Barn. (Yes, there are signs. And, no, it doesn’t look or feel at all like a barn inside.) There’s an elevator alternative to the stairs. After check-in, my husband and I recommend taking a gander at the lodge-like common room in the Dilwyne. It’s impressive with its large fireplace, piano, comfortable seating for 20, filled book case, (board games in the hallway), and even a table with built-in cup-holders. Help yourself to a couple Hershey’s Kisses from the scales in the hallway. Then take a stroll down Privy Lane – the center of the Village – before unloading your car. Appreciate the landscaping and enjoy the plaques with thought-provoking sayings like: “A laugh is the shortest distance between two people” and “Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.” If your room or suite is on Privy Lane (most are), you’ll leave your car in that lot as Privy Lane is pedestrian-only. Cars are excluded, even for drop-offs. Privy Lane is very close to the Dilwyne – just across a one-lane, one-way street. If you’re in one of the rooms or suites not on Privy Lane, you’ll probably park in one of the two, nearby, smaller lots. We chose one of the four one-bedroom suites to have a living room. (The Inn also has six two-bedroom suites.) The Tatnall Suite included a working fireplace, a couch, a desk, a refrig (with complimentary cans of Coke, Diet Coke, and Sprite and two bottles of water), a microwave, a sink (!!!), a coffee/tea maker, dishes (including nice glasses and mugs)/silverware, a private entrance and porch (actually we had two with the front veranda having its own yard space), AC, and bathrobes. There were also many other thoughtful touches: porch lights turned on in the evening, a couch throw, a skylight in the tall living room ceiling, a nice selection of magazines on the coffee table, "The New York Times" delivered to doorsteps, a light in the shower, paper towels, dishwashing soap, a cutting board, a fire extinguisher, a luggage rack, and whimsical cowbird motifs in the décor. The bed was comfortable. For our dinner at Krazy Kat’s, we shared several appetizers and split an entrée. The lamb rack was delicious with its orange-cherry jam and fresh mint sauce. (We asked for the chef’s suggestion and ordered it medium rare.) I especially liked the tomato and burrata cheese salad and the complimentary amuse-bouche – a very thin slice of apple on a special cracker with a fig balsamic sauce and fresh mint. We were too full for dessert, but we made up for that during our weekend brunch. Then, we tried the grapefruit brulee, which we had never had – a grapefruit half (or, rather, three-quarters at Krazy Kat’s) with a sugar glaze, broiled or torched. Refreshing and tasty. And the presentation of the chocolate cake was lovely with its multiple drizzles and fruit and whipped cream. Krazy Kat’s Restaurant serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays and, the last I knew, dinner Thursday through Monday. (Make your reservations ahead of time.) We also want to try their Back Burner Restaurant in Hockessin – about eight miles away. We’ve heard that the pumpkin mushroom soup (yes!) is very good. The Inn’s complimentary, weekday grab-n-go breakfast was not filling enough for us, so we were glad of our habit of bringing a box of Wheaties and milk in a thermal bag or cooler on trips. (This is because we often get hungry in the morning before we’re dressed.) The Inn’s breakfast was a small muffin and a cup of yogurt with plastic containers of diced fruit and a granola-type mix. Re noise: When making our reservation, my husband and I advised the reservations staff-person that we like quiet. She assigned us the Tatnall Suite. It was away from the heavily-trafficked roads. And we didn’t hear the train even once. (We also learned that the train doesn’t run after 9 p.m.) If outside noise was intrusive, we could have closed our bedroom door, but there was no need. And we only occasionally heard the footsteps of the guest above us. It was very peaceful. Re mobility and stairs: Since I use a cane, I’m very aware of accessibility. Privy Lane’s cobblestone pavers were not a problem. A scooter or a wheelchair would probably be fine also, but a walker might have problems with the grooves. If you use a walker, you could stay in one of the nine rooms or suites not on Privy Lane. If stairs are challenging, as they are for me, advise the reservations staff-person. Every room or suite looked to have outside stairs. Ours, the Tatnall Suite, had eight stairs, spread out over two or three short flights, at the entrance. Four of the suites have two floors and two suites have three floors. Superior king rooms have less stairs. There aren’t any elevators in the houses. Krazy Kat’s Restaurant does not have outside or inside stairs and has parking across from the restaurant that’s labelled for “Handicapped and those over 70.” (Yes!) With our reservation-making and our asking questions, we met quite a few staff members and EVERYONE we met – from the managers to the wait staff - was helpful and friendly: Anne, Beth, Jen, Lexi, Kim, and Clementine. Even a sous chef, happening by our table at Krazy Kat’s, said he hoped we were enjoying our meal! And the housekeeping staff seemed happy! After our visit, Fred was helpful with fact-checking by phone. In case you can’t tell – our visit was a pleasure! We look forward to returning to the Inn. We’ve already made reservations.
Great Bed and Breakfast, lots to do

We stayed in the Victor Suite it was amazing! It is located on the second floor, but is a quiet , spacious and very comfortable suite! The breakfast was a simple yogurt, granola and danish with coffee and tea, but held us over until lunch. The suite was very clean and well appointed. Plenty of restaurants and site seeing to do in the area.
Stunning Historic Inn. Great Escape & Awesome Dining

This is a beautiful Historic Hotel, with incredible landscaping, rustic charm and great hospitality. A gem, tucked away outside of Wilmington and close to Longwood Gardens and other attractions. In a word...FANTASTIC PLACE!
better stays at a motel along a highway

Worst lodging experience. A real joke that this a part of the Historic Hotels of America group. Dirty stone entrance way, dried leaves, grey plastic wicker rockers that were once white with filthy cushions. Once inside, the entrance way carpet was stained and dirty, the inside of the metal entrance door was kicked in and warped. The kitchen had a wooden counter top that was so scratched and nicked it was unsightly as was the wooden flatware tray. Then came the ants…..Then came the shower from the adjoining wall that was so loud we had to leave the bedroom at 6:45 am on a Saturday morning. Then we just left. Management could have cared less.
