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.

We stayed for 2 nights, doing tourist stuff. Marney, the Innkeeper, was very nice and gave us really good suggestions, what to do in 2 days. She was very helpful and it was a pleasure to have great conversations during breakfast (with fresh fruit salad!).
