The Fairville Inn Bed and Breakfast, with its elegantly appointed rooms and suites, is situated in the heart of the Brandywine Valley. The Inn is just minutes from Longwood Gardens, the Winterthur Museum and Country Estate, and the Brandywine River Museum. The Hagley Museum, the Brandywine Battlefield, and local wineries are close by. For the business traveler, the Inn is a short commute to the business district in Wilmington, Delaware and the rail line to Philadelphia.
The Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as part of the Fairville Historic District. Although the historical records are inconsistent, the Inn’s Main House was most likely built between 1825 and 1837. The original summer kitchen with root cellar remains as well. The Inn has been home to members of many of southern Chester County’s early families, including Mendenhall, Pyle, Trimble, Sharpless, and others. James Trimble was a relative of Daniel Defoe, author of Robinson Crusoe. His wife was sister to Ellwood Mendenhall, a prominent figure in the town that bears the family name.
Situated on over five acres (including the adjacent innkeepers’ quarters) and surrounded by miles of back roads, the inn has 13 rooms and two suites, each individually decorated. All rooms feature king or queen beds. Five rooms are in the original Main House, one with a private deck.
