Our daughter stayed here prior, and she raved about it. Subsequently, she invited us to take a weekend trip with her to the Inn for a visit to Pitman and Philly for some sight-seeing and Christmas shopping. The Inn was decorated for the holidays to perfection. The attention to detail was simply amazing, See photos attached.
My wife and I stayed in the Taylor Magnolia room. Our daughter was in the Elizabeth Willow room. The rooms were beautifully furnished, and the WiFi worked flawlessly. We did not watch much TV but it is Fios and worked well also.
Everyone seems to rant about the beds. Well, in my opinion....they are correct! The beds are exceptional. And unlike some other turn of the century B&Bs we've stayed at, these beds are quiet. No ancient box springs to squeak at every turn.
Bathroom was small, but this is typical of the B&Bs we've stayed at, and it functioned just fine.
Breakfast was excellent. It's sourced local, and was fresh, and delicious. Yvonne made a fluffy egg and spinach (I can't remember what else it had in it) cup our first morning and I wolfed mine down. Coffee was excellent according to my wife. My daughter and I drink tea, and the selection was very good.
This Inn has a very warm and cozy feel everywhere you go. We enjoyed just sitting in the parlor before breakfast and enjoying our coffee and tea. We sat and soaked in all the antiques and the extensive Christmas decorations. We spoke to another couple who did the same, and they were also treated to a fire in the fireplace (that's the best place to have a fire,BTW) while they just enjoyed the ambiance.
Downtown/main street is just a few minutes away on foot. It's a quaint--old fashioned small town. Lots of small shops, and they have a busy and revamped "golden age" theater that seems to have something going on all the time. Philly is just twenty minutes away, depending on traffic, of course. We hit lots of traffic on our excursions to, or through Philly,
Parking is a little tight at the back of the Inn--though we had no issue with my wife's little Kia Sportage. We got in and out without any problem. But if you have a large vehicle like a crew cab pickup or Excursion size SUV, you may have to do a bit of finagling to get in and out of the back parking lot. I think they may have an alternate lot up the street in those cases.
If we had one suggestion to make, it would be for Yvonne and Jake to come out to the breakfast table and sit and "jaw" more with the guests. They are interesting and personable folks, and we would liked to have spent more quality time with them.
We highly recommend The Inn on Holly!
