My expectations of breakfast at a BandB is hot breakfast. While there was a variety of breads and fruit, yogurt would have been a nice option. Marney is very knowledgable about the area and is devoted to the neighborhood and her house renovations.

My husband and I had a redeye flight from California, so we arrived much earlier than our hostess's normal check-in time. Marney was very accommodating and she had the room ready for us when we arrived. The house is beautiful with many interesting pieces of furniture and art work throughout. Marney spent time with us making us feel welcome and giving us historical information about the area, as well as valuable tourist information. The breakfast provided was delicious and substantial. Having all the guests sit and eat together gave us the opportunity to meet many nice people from all over the world.
I try to be flexible about arrival times, to accommodate the travel schedules of my guests... but it is always important to let me know about arrival times in advance, since only I can open the door for you (my wonderful cats haven't mastered that task yet!). Also, my porch repairs are finally finished (Hooray!), and my place also has new signage identifying the B&B, hanging on the front wall of the house. No more doubts or confusion about whether you've found the right place...

The original bed and breakfast my partner and I made reservations at was terrible so we had to turn it down, and we were desperate to find a room for the night. As chance would have it, Marney had just put a room up 3 minutes ago. We reserved the room and headed over, and were instantly greeted by Marney and her two amazing cats. She gave us the room for an amazing price, and we felt right at home. She is a wealth of amazing information, and we felt lucky to have met her. Our room was quiet, clean, and unique. The bathroom, even though it was shared, was spotless. It was a nice place to rest and as newbies to Philadelphia, we are glad we met someone as knowledgeable as Marney. It turned around a potentially disastrous weekend. Not to mention, she is probably one of the coolest women ever. Thank you so much!

A stay at this charming, 100-year old Germantown home is a wonderful experience and great value. It’s located on a block-long, one-way street in a quiet neighborhood of similar homes. Local ordinance prohibits signs, so nothing identifies it as a B&B. Owner Marney Hague, who has spent 12 years restoring the home, is putting finishing touches to the porch. Plenty of on-street parking is available. Comfortable but not posh, the home is filled with antique furniture and Marney’s collection of paintings and sculpture, creating an early twentieth-century feel. Free Wi-Fi provides a modern touch. In addition, large, completely refurbished bathrooms have separate tubs (with jacuzzi) and ample showers. Bedrooms come with televisions and window air-conditioning units. I had the second-floor Parlor Room, the largest of the bedrooms, with sofa and wide writing desk. Although daytime temperatures reached into the 90s, air-conditioning was not needed for sleeping because the room’s large windows allowed excellent cross-ventilation. Marney is a font of information about sightseeing in the Philadelphia area and restaurants within driving distance. She also stocks up on all kinds of maps and brochures. A hot breakfast is not served, but there’s several varieties of fresh fruit along with cold cereals, tea, coffee, and an extensive assortment of Amish breads. It’s a four-block walk to the Tulpehocken station on the Chestnut Hill West commuter train line. Getting to downtown Philadelphia takes 30 minutes. The senior fare is $1.00. A cautionary note for people with luggage arriving via the commuter train. The first half-block from the station is a fairly steep up-hill climb. After that the ascent becomes more moderate, but in spots over brick sidewalk or cracked pavement. For an elderly person or someone not in good health, the few blocks might be a challenge.

Disappointed with breakfast. A cooked breakfast would have been better than just fruit and cereal.

We had a lovely stay at Burbridge B&B last weekend. The stately mansion has tons of charm; the owner has clearly put a lot of love and hard work into restoring this home. She served a broad range of Amih country favorites for breakfast along with market fresh fruit, savory breads and an assortment of drinks. It's a quiet and beautiful neighborhood about 15-20 minutes from downtown Philly. For the proximity, charm, warm personal welcome and reasonable rates this B&B is far and above any chain hotel right downtown. My husband and I definitely hope to have to opportunity to stay here again.

The Inn Keeper was delightful and if you don't mind the friendly cat coming into your room you should enjoy staying here. just a couple of minor things were off but she seems to be on top of the corrective action. just wish this B&B was closer to downtown which was a 12 minute drive.

My husband and I stayed with Marney recently and it really felt like a home away from home. We have made everlasting memories from our stay with Marney our host and Cleo and Queen Bess (her very affectionate and just gorgeous cats). Marney is full of knowledge and enthusiasm for her home town and you will never be at a loss for ideas of what to do and see while visiting Philly. Although out of the city about 20 mins by rail, the easy walk to the local train station will take you past the old mansions of Germantown in all their glory. A quick bus ride in the opposite direction will take you up into Chestnut Hill where there are many restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. We would definitely recommend Burbridge B&B and feel that you would be hard pressed to find anything that is better value for money than here! Scott and Annie

The owner Marney was welcoming and offered tips of things to see and places to eat. I enjoyed the antiques and furnishings in this interesting bed and breakfast. We liked the location, in a varied residential neighborhood rather than in a hotel or business area. The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom shelves were full of books to read. We love her two cats. The breakfast was full of healthy choices and we enjoyed the wide range of fresh fruits and breads. I would have liked to have breakfast earlier than the set time but understand the selected time must meet the needs of the others staying there.
