Gorgeous space, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five days over graduation weekend - Alice was wonderfully welcoming and made sure we had a fully stocked fridge.

Showers were very good, the kitchen is well laid out and the beds are very comfortable. Being on such a calm street minutes away from South St and Rittenhouse restaurants is a treat. Many thanks - we will certainly return if in Philly!

Great historic home and location. We were in town for the Army/Navy game. The property owner, Alice, is very attentive. There were basic groceries (eggs, milk, apples, etc.) upon our arrival which was much appreciated! Would definitely stay again next time in Philadelphia. Highly recommend!

Alice was amazing-very available if we needed anything and just overall a nice person. Would definatly recommend parking for the stay and and über or walk. There are lots of nice resturants in walking distance of the house. 5 stars!!!!

Great home!

We had a wonderful stay. Great location, easy walking distance to restaurants and many attractions. The kitchen was great for breakfast at home and afternoon snacks.

Alice was so gracious as to provide a few groceries to help us out.

would definitely stay here on a return trip to Philadelphia.

Perfect Charm and Elegance

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this impeccably renovated trinity while the floors in our nearby house were redone. Our stay was a terrific respite from our construction project. We are from Philadelphia, and feel that a stay here affords a perfect feel for charming, historic Philadelphia trinity living, albeit with modern amenities.

Four of us stayed comfortably in the two beds and the Aerobed. (There is also a cot, but my youngest child and I shared one of the beds.) The beds were very comfortable.

From the backyard we saw lots of greenery visible from neighboring yards, and the seating provided a serene escape from the bustle of the city.

Everything you need or could reasonably want was provided in the house, which, through the owner's (or designer's) organizational skills, feels very spacious.

Whoever renovated the house has a meticulous eye for detail. For example, the heated floors in the bathrooms and even in the kitchen were a welcome luxury during the first real week of autumnal chill, and each room held at least one design element that delighted and surprised, such as the pulley to adjust the pendant light over the kitchen table or the third floor's original cast-iron bathtub with superb detailed feet.

Alice, the owner, whom we had not met before finding her house on HomeAway, is a treasure of charm and knowledge. Thank you for a delightful stay!
