Splendor B&B

City Line

Built in 1896, this house was designed by the architect Joseph W. Huston, who also designed the Pennsylvania State Capitol. Constructed of Pompeian (smooth glazed) brick and locally quarried rough stone, this seventeen room home is a Victorian showpiece lovingly maintained by its’ owners.
In the foyer, the front staircase winds gracefully to the second and third floors where four guest rooms are furnished with lovely antiques. Choose the queen bedded or twin bedded room on the second floor, connected by a bath which has a footed tub with shower. On the top floor is a queen-bedded room flooded with natural sunlight. A smaller room with a single bed is perfect for a single guest. The large hall bath features beautiful tiles, a Jacuzzi tub and shower.
Of the many unique features of this home, one of the most interesting is the huge fish tank that serves as the base of the kitchen counter. Four fireplaces and an abundance of beautiful oak woodwork further add to the charm found throughout. A lovely garden frames the backyard swimming pool. In warmer weather guests can enjoy their full breakfast on the deck overlooking the garden and pool.
Located in the historically certified area of Overbrook Farms, this accommodation is walking distance to St. Joseph’s University. It is also a short car or train ride to many of the Main Line Colleges. With the local commuter rail station just 2 blocks away, this B&B is an ideal spot for both business and leisure travelers. Within five minutes you will be at 30th Street Station and in another five minutes at the Convention Center.


"The Victorian Splendor was a wonderful, delightful, delicious experience. We had a wonderful time and the accommodations in the B&B were lovely. What really made the experience great was our hosts were welcoming, friendly, good conversationalists and kind people.We would definitely stay again when we are visiting our daughter. Thank-you very much for helping us with this reservation. You made it easy."  MT

"I would be glad to share my review at the Victorian Splendor B&B in Philadelphia located in the City Line area. The hostess was warm and welcoming along with giving us a beautiful tour of her home. Each morning she prepared a delightful breakfast and gave us great insight on surrounding areas to visit and 'hot spot' restaurants. I will definitely recommend friends and family to this beautiful place and I will most definitely be returning."   JD
