This beautifully restored Victorian home provides an elegant respite from the many entertaining activities in Philly. We especially enjoyed stepping back in time on the spacious porch, enjoying an extra cup of coffee or sipping a glass of wine after sightseeing and visiting the university campuses nearby. The lovely rooms are spotlessly clean, nicely designed for comfort without clutter. Public...

This well-managed, comfortable Bed & Breakfast is conveniently located. The owners are marvels of hospitality, the rooms are large and well planned. The place itself is within walking distance of 30th Street Station for arrivals by Amtrak or regional rail from the airport. It is situated in a university neighborhood with close access to Drexel University and The University of...

We had a great stay! Dennis and Liz made you feel right at home in their beautiful home. We really enjoyed our conversations with Dennis during breakfast, it was such a pleasure to talk to him. The house is beautiful and the food was delicious. Dennis was extremely knowledgeable of the area and helped us get around by giving us...

The owners were quite helpful and accomodating and offered my wife and I some suggestions for a walking tour. We stayed in the Philadelphia room which is on the...

My husband and I recently stayed here in the Philadelphia room (I believe that is the name). The room was very nice, as were the snacks provided. The location was very convenient to many attractions. The only thing we did not enjoy was what was offered for breakfast--we may have missed something, but it seemed that cereal and granola were...

Have stayed there several times as my son is at Drexel. Always lovely, very clean. Hosts are great and always learn a lot from the other guests at breakfast. The veranda is a great place to watch the world go by. Can't ask for a better location or value.

With a son at Drexel, this is now my place to stay when I come to see him. Room is clean and spacious, full of character too. Breakfast was delicious. Host is present and ready to help without being too invasive.. Did not like the pillows but next time, I will bring my own. This was a really great first...
