1807 Townhouse

Historic Area

This attractive, spacious Society Hill home, built in 1807, was completely renovated by its present owners in 1967. Today, the open, modern plan of the interior may make you forget that this historic building has given shelter to Philadelphians for two centuries. 

In 1865 the front of the property was demolished and all of the floors were raised – making the ceilings on the first floor 13 feet high. The marble steps and double doors were built in 1865 creating a grand entrance. A state-of-the art kitchen is a recent addition.  The two guest rooms have queen size beds and private, ensuite baths. The rooms have TV, private phone, central A/C, individually controlled heat. Public transportation is at the corner. A continental breakfast is available in the dining room in the mornings.

Your host is a retired stock market and futures trader. He is well versed in the history of the area. Your hostess, retired Assistant Dean of a major medical school, is very active in the community. Both are supporters of a number of Philadelphia opera and theater companies and have conducted extensive research to discover the fascinating history of their home.

GUEST COMMENTS

GUEST COMMENTS

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.  Our hosts were quiet, yet friendly.  They provided cut-up fruit and a tasty bread item every morning.  Coffee and tea were available at all times.  The bedroom, eating area, and tv room were lovely and comfortable.  We really enjoyed going up on the rooftop to look-out over the city.  We would recommend the Amante delle Arti to anyone who wants to stay close to the art museum area."  CG    

"We want to thank you for introducing us to Amante delle Arti; we had such a wonderful
stay there. The hosts are absolutely delightful, and we loved their 3rd floor guest area:an incredible comfy bed, delicious breakfasts, and beautiful artwork and decor all on
a charming and very quiet street. The rooftop patio is great! What a great find, and all
thanks to you!” VD

GUEST COMMENTS:

"The owner was delightful, helpful, informative, charming--a perfect host.  Our rooms were exquisite, perfectly appointed and decorated, cozy but classy.  The breakfast provided was lovely. I preferred his style of simply stocking the room; it allowed us to eat very heartily at our own convenience so we could be up and out early to enjoy Philadelphia.  Thank you for your help, and we look forward to staying again." MK

"We very much enjoyed our stay at our B&B. The owner was the perfest host. The rooms were charming and the perfect 'pied-a-terre' for us. We had a little kitchen where we could have a low-cal meal from time to time, other than breakfast. Broad Street is a busy road, but the AC drowned out the noise of the traffic just fine and we slept well. Being right next door to a Culinary Art Institute, where we enjoyed a wonderful meal, and the National Shrine of St. Rita, where we attended frequent services, was an unexpected and welcome treat."   GB

""Our experience at Bainbridge B&B was wonderful. We were welcomed by the host as if we were from his family.  We had the whole 3rd level for ourselves and a fridg with fresh beverages in our room. He gave us advice, too, to visit the city and to choose restaurants. The location is very close to the center and the neighborhood is very kind. We totally recommend this place."   CM

"We had a wonderful stay at the B&B. The location was great. We were able to walk to most of the attractions and the parking area was conveniently located just up the street. The host was very helpful and hospitable. Gave lots of suggestions to various restaurants, stores ect. The room was cozy and it was nice having the top floor to ourselves. I would definately revisit the B&B when we return to Philly and recommend it to others who are traveling to Philadelphia. I hope everywhere I travel we're able to find B&B's like this one.  Who needs a hotel"? JK

GUEST COMMENTS

"The location was fantastic!  It's .5 miles from the Reading Terminal Market or the Italian Market. It's a bit longer to the historic area...There is a parking garage literally around the corner for $17 per night...The furnishings were good. The king bed was a favorite for my wife. The sleeper sofa and the roll-away was okay for the kids, no complaints there...The hosts were friendly, mostly busy, and we like that, rather than overly friendly. They supplied us with bagels, juice, coffee, tea supplies, etc"   MH

Located in the heart of the Historic Area, the Inn is the perfect headquarters from which to explore Old Philadelphia.

The Grand Parlor, with its leather settees, fireplace, and early American art, is the ideal place to relax after a busy day or to enjoy afternoon tea. The 36 distinctive high-ceilinged guest rooms are decorated in a traditional style and furnished with queen or king sized beds, rich draperies, upholstered chairs and writing desks. All have a private bath, phone, TV, and air-conditioning.

GUEST COMMENTS

“We enjoyed our stay and I can understand why you underplay the fact that the B&B is a Best Western as it really didn't seem like a chain hotel at all. We were very pleased with its location, the room, the food was OK. The desk gave us a very good dinner recommendation.” JK

"We had a wonderful stay.  The staff was extremely helpful and personable.  The atmosphere was great and the rooms were clean and comfortable.  We will certainly call on you again if we are back in Philadelphia." TH

“We had a wonderful stay at the Fairmount B&B! The hostess was there to welcome us and orient us to the city. She provided me with bus route information to get to the convention centre and my fiancé with tourist information (to keep busy while I was at the conference!) - she had great resources for everything! The room was comfortable and we felt that we had our privacy. We could easily come and go as we pleased. Breakfast was delicious and served at whatever time was best for us every morning (easy to arrange) - this was much appreciated!

New Market B&B

Historic Area

The present owner of this small, historic 1811 Philadelphia brick townhouse transformed it from an abandoned shell to a comfortable, attractive home with a modern interior which retains some beautiful features of the original structure.

Some of the nearly 200-year-old interior brick walls are still exposed. Also preserved are the original floors, doors, latches, narrow, circular wooden stairs and the butter-colored old pine paneling enclosing them. By building a small greenhouse at the rear of the ground floor, more space and light have been added.

Furnished in a contemporary style, the B&B is an interesting combination of old and new. The air-conditioned bedrooms, located on the second and third floors, are simply furnished, one with a double bed and one with a king bed that can be made up as twins if requested. Each room has an ensuite bath and basic cable TV. The wood-burning fireplace in the third floor bedroom adds a special charm to this room on a winter evening. Wireless internet connection is a plus.

GUEST COMMENTS:

"We had a wonderful stay. The B&B is very well located in Society Hill close to many restaurants. You can walk downtown in less than 20 minutes. It's a historic neigbourhood  with nice and old buildings. The hostess is very welcoming and a very interesting person. The food is good, and if you love cats, Pietro and Sabrina will be happy to be your friends."   DG

“New Market B&B is incredible value. The B&B is in a great neighbourhood ( 40 minute walk & $6-$7 cab ride to Convention Center). Very close to excellent restaurants  - and in interesting neighbourhood - less expensive & way more safe & charming than staying downtown at a big box hotel. Loved the hostess's lovingly restored home and home made granola.  Two thumbs way up!!" JB

GUEST COMMENTS:

"The loft was absolutely incredible.  It was fully equipped with everything you could ever need from bundt pans, to bakeware, to very comfortable beds, central A/C & heating, ample closet space, backpacks (which were very handy for our day trip to NY) and two great showers.  We are huge cooks, and this made so much sense for our family.  It was worth every penny because we could be comfortable in our own loft, which was HUGE, and could prepare meals at home.   There is a premium sound system, a large tv in one of the areas, great natural lighting in the living room, a premium stove and oven, big refrigerator, and the location could not be better.   The street was extremely safe and the loft was incredibly quiet.  The owner was also in contact with us and so pleasant and accommodating.  We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip!" TN  

"The Loft was wonderful. Everything was great, the space, location, parking - just down the street, and it was very clean and stocked with anything  we needed. The owners were the best.  They made every effort to flex to our schedule".   LM

Society Hill Studio

Historic Area

Built in 1829 by Henry White, the son of the first bishop of the Episcopal Church, this magnificent property has been home to several prominent Philadelphia families. Located on Mansion Row in Society Hill, this accommodation looks out over the very streets walked by our Founding Fathers. Historic buildings give way to charming coffee shops and restaurants. Just a 15 minute walk from the Convention Center, this is the perfect spot to experience Historic Philadelphia. With the kitchen, it also is an excellent accommodation for a longer stay.

 Upon entering the building you will notice the stunning murals in the foyer. Climbing to the third floor, you will enter a sunny studio apartment. The spacious sitting area is accented by a decorative fireplace and Oriental rug. High ceilings and warm yellow walls as well as striking artwork adorn the space. Nestled in the corner of the room is an antique, four poster, full-size bed. The lovely recessed windows provide a beautiful view of the city. Custom shutters allow for privacy at night.

Your host is an independent consultant in the fields of management and leadership as well as a practicing Episcopal priest. Your hostess is a retired arts manager and amateur pianist. They are both interested in politics and the performing arts and volunteer locally. In addition, they speak enough French and Spanish to be helpful in those languages.

GUEST COMMENTS:

“We LOVED Society Hill Studio! It was very comfortable, the room was outstanding and
beautiful, the kitchenette was very handy, and hosts were very helpful and friendly. We
really liked having our own floor so we could stay and go as we pleased. We loved the
room so much we opted for wine and cheese dinner there instead of going out!
Thanks for your help finding this accommodation for us last minute. We definitely
recommend it, and would stay there again "   AH

S.Philadelphia Serenity

Italian Market Area

Tucked on a small street near the Italian Market, this accommodation provides a comfortable and quiet retreat for travelers. The townhouse was built about 150 years ago when immigrants, most of them from Italy, flocked to the city of Philadelphia. Just a couple of blocks away, the country's oldest and largest outdoor market, from which the area gets its' name, continues to operate today. The Italian Market, while still predominantly Italian, is home to more than 100 merchants who offer a variety of foods from many cultures.
 
Your hostess has lived in the neighborhood for more than a decade, and she has lovingly updated the home and spacious back patio. The guest rooms are on the third floor. This accommodation is perfect for one, two or three guests as there are 2 rooms available. It is also ideal for families traveling with a child. The single traveler can choose to take the daybed room or both rooms if more space is desired. The larger room has a full size bed, comfy reading chair and spacious desk. The main room has a cozy daybed which is perfect for a single guest. This tranquil space, decorated in soothing shades of green, has a flat screen t.v. and a high-top table with stools where you can work on your laptop (wifi included) or eat breakfast. The suite is equipped with a coffee maker, microwave and small refrigerator as well as cups, plates and utensils. The hostess stocks the suite with a self-serve continental breakfast. The ensuite bath has a glass shower. Weather permitting, guests are welcome to enjoy the rear courtyard.
 
A little over a mile from Independence Park, this B&B is a great spot to stay when coming to see the Historic Sights. If headed to the Convention Center, a guest could walk there in about 25 minutes or take the bus. Whatever your reason for visiting Philadelphia, take time to visit the Italian Market and neighborhood restaurants. You may also want to try a cheesesteak. The famed Pat's and Geno's are just a short walk away from the South Philadelphia Serenity.

 GUEST COMMENTS:

We were pleasantly surprised by our accommodations at the South Philadelphia Serenity. Efforts were made to be sure we were comfortable in both the furnishings and atmosphere.  The hostess was wonderful, offering to provide whatever we might need, but not being at all intrusive into our stay.  The location was very close to Center City and allowed us to walk into the city on the one morning we weren't traveling around.  BM

Just a short stroll from Rittenhouse Square, this sunny, one bedroom, furnished, ground floor apartment with private entrance is convenient to both Center City and the University of Pennsylvania. The living room's large beveled glass windows provide plenty of natural light while the decorative oak blinds assure complete privacy.

Your hosts, a couple with small children, live on the floors above the apartment. They have lived in Philadelphia for over ten years and love the neighborhood; they can guide you to some of their favorite restaurants and coffee shops. This accommodation is just a 20 minute walk to the Convention Center and to University of Pennsylvania. The bus stops 1/2 block away, and you can easily reach either the university, shopping or historic area with a short trip.

GUEST COMMENTS:

"The South Rittenhouse Flat is well-appointed, spacious, charming, and in a great location. It's very attractively and comfortably furnished....The flat is also equipped with ample kitchenware, quality towels and sheets, and even some basic breakfast supplies in the fridge....Cable TV and free internet also worked perfectly and were big assets. An added plus is that the landlady and landlord are very friendly and helpful. The location of the flat is also super: walking distance from stores, restaurants, entertainment, and --pertinent for visiting academics -- a number of key libraries. I would highly recommend this flat and would stay there again anytime."   JG
