The space

Our five-bedroom Victorian reflects our love of urban and rural landscapes.

Your bedroom on our private third floor is filled with light and offers plenty of space for you to keep your belongings and relax.

The bed for two has a new mattress and plenty of pillows, and we're happy to lend a port-a-crib for families.

Guest access

Private bedroom on a private floor. Shared bathroom with full-sized tub and shower. In summer, large backyard with patio and outdoor seating area.

Interaction with guests

We love meeting new people! Your accommodations will be on a private floor, but we're often home, cooking in the kitchen or relaxing in the yard.

Both my husband and I have worked in Philly's thriving restaurant scene, and we're happy to recommend great new (and old) spots!

Beautiful light and airy room, exactly as described. Great location for heading into downtown Philadelphia but many eateries and bars around Germantown as well! Check in was nice and easy and we had a lovely stay. Thanks Sarah and Matt!

Simple, classic, and affordable. Hosts were very communicative. Even let us check in late and check out late! What more could you ask for?

Sarah and Matt’s place was cute, clean and easy to access. We were in town for just a night for an event in Philly, and were looking for a nearby place to crash. It is a short 20 minute drive to downtown. Sarah communicated instruction well. We had a comfortable stay in a neat room with several amenities. Ran into no issues overnight, and parking is relatively easy to find in the area.

Location and price/value are the winning points. You are entering and sharing a family's home with small children and pets living there. The house number is hard to see from the street - is on the front door. You may walk up a few wrong walkways before you figure it out. Your bedroom is on the 3rd floor of a tall house and you should be prepared to schlep your luggage up a couple steep and rickety staircases. Bedroom is very spacious. Bed is firm. Safety/security features: lights in hallway, latch on bedroom door. Bathroom is shared and located on a separate floor/other end of house, down a rickety staircase and past the family's rooms. You will need to go out (about a mile) in the morning to get a real cup of coffee. Neighborhood cafe is excellent and worth the walk. A busy, active young family is opening their home to you.

It's very convenient position to stay here, for both go to Philadelphia downtown and shopping in Delaware, and both my colleague and I enjoy the stay, you can park the car easily on the street, Sarah and Matt are both sincere person, and they have a cute baby, together with a cat and dog, the friends occasionally visit us during our stay in the bedroom, very funny.

I love Sarah and Matt's home! While I never actually met them, communication with them was easy and friendly. The room is lovely and the bed comfortable, and the ac unit in the window works very well for a hot summer night! I definitely enjoyed my stay!
