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 love Philadelphia and will give you plenty of places to see, things to do and places to eat.

About the neighbourhood
We are located in the northwest section of Philadelphia just minutes from Center City. Historic Germantown is where one of Philadelphia's Revolutionary War battles was fought; where the first-ever American protest against slavery was written; and where one of the few remaining houses on the Underground Railroad still stands.
Our neighbors are Germantown Friends School and Pennslvania School for the Deaf to name a few.
Creative and independent restaurants are sprinkled throughout the neighborhood satisfying an array of tastes. We have a listing of our favorites as well as other standards in a binder in each room.
