Private Room , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 2
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The original house was built in 1760. The first addition was built by James Matthews in 1809 and the rear addition was built during the Civil War. Listed by the Philadelphia's Historic Commission, we are happy to share the experience of staying in a historic home with 20th century amenities. Located in the northwest section of Philadelphia just 7 miles from Center City, public transportation by bus or train as well as bike paths are just outside of our door. We are neighbors of Germantown Friends School, Pennsylvania School for the Deaf and Greene Street Friends school. We love Philadelphia and will give you plenty of places to see, things to do and places to eat.
