Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Montchanin Village
Great place for small meetings
My college sorority reunion had a marvelous stay at the inn recently. The food, service, and accomodations were excellent.
We Loved Inn at Montchanin Village
The staff and ambience at Inn was great. The staff at the Krazy Kat restaurant was great and did everything to make me and my fiance happy. We had a superior suite with a private garden,private porch, fireplace, refrigerator, dinnerware, jacuzzi and stand up shower. If you want to get a superior suite without spending the $375; purchase a suite at $239 and then ask for an upgrade when you reach inn to a superior suite if available. I would highly recommend for couples
Nice Place for Couples
Just recently stayed over the Labor Day weekend. Had a very nice time and found the staff helpful. The grounds are beautiful, very peaceful and quiet. Had dinner and breakfast at Krazy Kats and it was top notch! The food was excellent and the service for dinner was better then breakfast.
Had a queen size suite which was set up like a townhouse. A small sitting room with a workable "web bar" kitchen. The bed was somewhat comfortable and the bathroom was nice with a deep soaking tub and sep. shower. Did have problems with the a/c. Our bedroom never seemed cool enough despite managment coming over to check on it.
This is a lovely place to visit if you are a couple or retired and love to travel. I would agree with the business traveler comments about them not being up to some standsards with technology, but this is a place to "escape"
Not a very good stay
Very disappointed in the property and the service. Not at all what I was expecting from reputable organization such as Small Luxury. Would never recommend or return which is a shame due to the proximity to Winterthur. Truly a shame...
Not for the business traveler!
I recently stayed at the Inn at Montchanin in conjunction with business in the greater Wilmington area: I had once previously dined at the property's Krazy Kats restaurant, so I was familiar with the Inn's beautiful facilities and anticipated a great stay. What a disappointment. While this may be a great get-away spot for the leisure traveler, it is nearly impossible to conduct any business while staying there. Clearly the proprietors of the Inn have not embraced 21st century technology: no high-speed internet on the property, slow fax service, no reliable business services, not to mention a web site that does not take reservations. The one positive experience was the gracious and professional assistance I received from the Krazy Kats young restaurant manager who knocked himself out to keep my business associates happy. So, if you stay at the Inn, leave your laptop and cell phones behind: otherwise you will be frustrated.
This is a great Inn
My husband and I spent a night in Dec. at this inn and we were delighted with our accommodations. Our room was large and comfortable and had a fireplace and a snack kitchen. Both breakfast and dinner at the Crazy Cat Restaurant were excellent.
My husband just spent our fourth anniversary at the Inn at Montchanin Village. It was an incredible experience. Our suite was perfect - we loved the fireplace! Our package included champagne and chocolates. It also included breakfast at their restaurant, Krazy Kats. I ate the most incredible Grand Marnier, Raspberry, White Chocolate French Toast. The service was friendly and helpful, and the tea and coffee in the lobby were lovely. We hope to return as soon as we possibly can!
The Inn's The Place To Stay
My wife and I have stayed at the Inn twice. Both times it was a fantastic, relaxing experience. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The staff is super friendly and efficient. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated. Their restaurant, Krazy Kat's, is a wonderful place to eat.
Need I say more? The second time we stayed there we had a suite (bedroom, sitting room with kitchenette and a sumptuous bathroom) with a small back porch ( It was the "Tatnall" suite. which, like the other units in the Inn, is named after one of the families that lived there back when the village that is now the Inn was where the families of workers at the DuPont powder mills lived.) After a day of enjoying the many attractions, and lovely back roads and scenery, of the Brandywine Valley, my wife and I relaxed and unwound sitting in the comfortable wicker chairs on the porch with a cocktail and admiring the small garden behind our unit. After that pleasant interlude, we walked the short distance to the building that formerly housed the village's blacksmith shop and now houses the Krazy Kat's restaurant, where we enjoyed an excellent meal. After dinner, we strolled up to the large barn where, in addition to the reception desk, there is a cavernous sitting room in which we enjoyed an after-dinner cordial from the honor bar that is set out there every evening. As you might imagine, We plan to go back. Not cheap, but worth the price!
My husband I stayed here just this past weekend on the night of our wedding. This is a true gem of a place with unique, tasteful furnishings and ALL amenities. This inn is run very well and they don't miss any details. The value is high. Wish we could have stayed longer and we are already talking about when we can return. Loved it!
Relaxing, and the little things made the difference
My husband and I stayed at the Montchanin Inn last year, and I we are about to make reservations to stay there again. Many of the buildings on the property used to be part of a village (hence the name).
Everything is custom and special - custom (delicious) chocolates on the pillow, custom tile in the marble bathroom in our room, unique furniture in each room. Great, efficient, polite service. The Inn is a good deal for the money, also. I have paid more for accommodations that were nowhere near this nice. I am really looking forward to staying there again.

... had a good wander round .. The bell is very well travelled and met a lot of people before heading across to the Independence Hall. We did enter the court which you weren't allowed to do unless on a tour but managed to get out of that one! Next stop South Street which is full of loads of fast food places, restaurants, shops and surprisingly the odd randomly placed sex shop! We popped into ...
... find to cool off and get some water. Exhausted, we rested during the afternoon and decided to stay in for dinner and hang out around the house. Tiffany cooked a mean rice dish for dinner and while we waited we nibbled on peppers, hummus and crackers and grapes. We also enjoyed some dark and stormies. We played Cards Against Humanity until one by one people disappeared to bed.
On Monday we all took a long walk to get our legs moving and then slowly people began to pack ...
We finally got into Philly at about 3:30 PM, and after figuring out it was about 2 miles to my hotel from the train station, I decided that I was too tired and had had too little food that day (read: none) to figure out how to navigate the city. And so, today I successfully hailed my first taxi.
Of course, the first taxi I hailed "didn't know" how to get to my hotel, and almost ran me over in his hurry to get away from ...
... I needed drive into the distance so I took the opportunity to walk back rather than wait half an hour for the next one. It was a really nice walk and nice to get some fresh air after spending 12 hours in the hospital. I send some emails before going to bed and Johns Hopkins Hospital had sent my finalised itinerary for next week. One of the meetings instantly jumped out at me; a meeting with Sorrel King who set up the Josie King Foundation using the settlement after the ...
Well today started as one of those days that we simply wanted to go back to bed and have a do-over. We were up early and left camp early to avoid traffic and meet our timeline for the tours we had planned. We got about 10 miles out and David realized he forgot his wallet. So we turned around and left camp about an hour later than we wanted. So...off we go for a second time. This time we get about 20 miles out (it's about 60 miles to philly) and whay do we hear but the sound ...
