**Please note, the stairs can be challenging for anyone who is taller or has mobility issues and you must go upstairs through the bedroom to get to the bathroom.

***What is a trinity house? Unique to Philadelphia - though perhaps at one time a few may have existed in New York - the trinity house, also known as a bandbox house or Father, Son, and Holy Ghost house, is a small house usually built for the lowest class of servants. The trinity house originally contained one room per floor, hence the name. Typically these houses would contain three floors, a basement kitchen, and a tiny attic. Each floor would contain a fireplace, and be connected by a pocket staircase tucked behind the chimney. The back would contain a cobbled privy.

Comfy, cozy and CUTE as a bug!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a recent weekend in Philadelphia, and loved staying in this charming house. Everything is so well thought out, and each area and item has a purpose. The king bed is very comfortable. Great shower and super comfortable linens. The house is in a perfect location. Kristie, the hostess, is kind and accommodating. I appreciate all she has done to make the house a home, for all!

Kristie thinks of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderfully appointed and well located home away from home, close to restaurants, convenience store, pharmacy, shops, and even a wonderful little dog park. Kristie provided everything we needed and then some. The house was immaculately clean. There are two flights of steep stairs, which our corgi was unable to go down independently, but that most likely won't be an issue for others. Our Nissan Rogue fit in the garage. Kristie was very good about answering questions and solved an issue with the AC very promptly. Would stay there again.

Great visit during Eagles parade!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights during the Philadelphia Eagles parade for their Super Bowl win. We were VERY lucky to find this place! It's completely adorable and it has everything you could possibly need. Great location- we walked to some cute restaurants nearby. Kristie was very accommodating and easy to work with and we appreciated that she left us a bottle of wine and bottled water, umbrellas to borrow, etc. And the garage was a major bonus. Our Volkswagen Jetta fit just fine in the garage. I would recommend this place to anyone and hope to stay there again! We had an awesome stay. So happy we found it!

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kristie. Your Rodman home was the perfect stopover for us as we waited to move into our new Philly home. I don’t know how you are able to fit so many amenities into this space, but you did. Nothing was missing. And the location was ideal as any native Philadelphian would avow. Thank you for taking the time to ask if we had any questions. Fortunately we didn’t...your directions and information were clear.

Really Cute in a GREAT Location

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need in a very compact arrangement. Yes, the garage is narrow and the steps are steep but it is the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy Center City or UPenn and avoid the hotel scene. Kristie was the perfect hostess, checking with us to be sure everything was to our satisfaction and checking in could not have been easier. Would definitely stay here again.
