Ours is a smoke-free Victorian home, ca. 1880, with both antique and “practical” furnishings. You should find both your private space on the 2nd floor and the shared area on the 1st floor quite comfortable, spacious and well-appointed. When the weather’s nice, you’ll want to spend a little time on the patio overlooking the large, well-planted side yard. Are you interested in seeing Philadelphia while you're here? We're a 5 minute walk to the Swarthmore train station and 25 minute direct ride right into center city! That's faster than driving and no big parking garage charge.

There was a warm welcome from the first moment of contact. The house is authentically furnished and very comfortable. The hosts do this exceptional B&B were helpful, friendly and very knowledgable about the area. The room we stayed in was beautifully furnished and comfortable. The shared bathroom immaculate, modern, yet tastefully furnished and had the fluffiest towels ever! Home cooking and freshly made cookies made this a place I would highly recommend.
