My boyfriend and I stayed at the Silverstone Bed & Breakfast last month. We were very happy with our weekend stay ! The house itself was absolutely breathtaking and we could not get enough of it. The hosts Romuald and Yolanda along with their son Peter were very kind and welcoming. We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts and tea on the stunning... More

All the other positive reviews are true, and more: everything inside and out in this beautiful home is well-kept and easy on the eyes. And the hosts are more than wonderful--they are so interesting to talk to: Romuald, retired from cleaning up serious toxic waste challenges for the Fed, now writes fiction. Tessa is a nutritionist, with the best cookbook... More

Located in historic Chestnut Hill, the Silverstone is like stepping back to the Victorian era. I was warmly welcomed and stayed in a comfortable, spacious and well appointed room with a private bath, wood floors, brass bed and other turn of the century furnishings. The grounds were well maintained with srubs and flowers everywhere I wandered. I enjoyed the daily... More

Tessa H. Yolanda and Romuald are wonderful hosts who truly care for their visitors. They are helpful and accomodating and serve delicious and fully homemade breakfasts with a smile, humor, and good conversation. After an intense nine days being in town for graduate residency this place was a peaceful oasis after a long day and felt more like a stay... More

Teresa and Jim M. We've all come out at the other end of a harsh winter. My husband and I just recalled the coldest day of the winter and where we were. It was a Valentine's Day/President's Day weekend planned almost at the last minute because snow was in the forecast and we were driving from NYC. We got lucky... More

I spent two nights at Silverstone when I returned recently to Chestnut Hill for a school reunion. Yolanta and Romuald were very gracious and the house itself has great character and privacy. I was in a small suite with bath in the rear of the house that was spacious and quiet. I will return.

This place is a real gem tucked away in a charming neighborhood. Our family of five stayed for 6 days and had a great experience in our very spacious and comfortable rooms. The beds were of high quality and made for restful nights. The rooms were cleaned everyday, and our energetic hosts, Yolanta and Rom took great care of us... More

I don't know if Dr. Berger wrote this after a draw in our last game of chess, or after consuming my omelet. Anyway, to improve "Silverstone's" position among Phila B&B's I should remember: Huge omelets and risky gambits! More

This bed and breakfast is a gold mine if you get to stay here. The hostess is remarkable and so charming. The whole place is charming, the rooms are clean and big. It's like staying at great grandma's palace. We wanted to stay longer. The meals were like sitting down with family and the other guests were nice. The landscape... More
