The space

We have a large house in the city with high ceilings, antiques, art and a very sweet dog. The room has a western exposure, and is sunny with three windows. It is on the third floor with a private bathroom. You can read about us and our home, as well as read reviews here. Cara is an acupuncturist who works next door. Eric is an attorney. We are social people and we love meeting new people.

We have hosted a number of musicians, and we have an additional room on the third floor that you are welcome to use for playing music.

We also have a second bedroom available. We never rent both rooms at the same time to separate guests. But both rooms are available to families or friends traveling together. The two room option must be booked through our separate listing is at

Cara's place was exactly how it was described. Clean, comfortable and a perfect location. It was easy to find and both Eric and Cara were excellent hosts. They didn't mind when I brought my bike into their home. I would definitely recommend their place for any type of visits to Philadelphia. Thanks for a great stay!

They were great hosts. Made sure I had everything I needed and we're very helpful in letting me know events happening in the area. I would highly recommend a stay with them.

Cara does an amazing job. The room is so comfortable and clean. The area is filled with delicious local spots to eat and the location is central enough to get to the sights quickly but far enough away to relax at the end of the day.

I loved the location and the history of the home - very inviting and a lot more personal and pleasurable than staying in a hotel that is like every other hotel. I was able to walk everywhere I needed to go and enjoyed the neighborhood and restaurants.

Cara's place was great! She and Eric responded quickly to our messages and communicated everything we needed from them as far as information about the room and suggestions about the surrounding area were concerned. The room was just what we expected and was perfect. Quiet, essentially on a floor by itself, and really pretty. If (and when!) we head back to Philadelphia, we would definitely stay with Cara and Eric again.

It is a nice house in walking distance to the city center. The rooms were comfortable, and well separated. We could have our privacy. Ella, the dog is very friendly.
