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

My family stayed for 10 long days at this place and were very comfortably placed. The hosts, Yolanta and Rom are very well versed with different cultures and are a great support whenever anyone is in need.

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

This B&B is a stone mansion with over a hundred years of history. Christmas decorations beautifully adorned the welcoming lobby of the house, and our hosts greeted us with smiles and a wonderful sense of humor. I knew we were in for a comfortable stay when Yolanta offered us tea and whisky that was left out for guests to enjoy... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Silverstone Bed & Breakfast in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia. For those unfamiliar with the area, or the Silverstone, I can highly recommend both; and, to those familiar with Chestnut Hill but not the Victorian Era Bed & Breakfast with its European proprietors (Roman and Yola) I can only say – what is keeping...

It is great that some of my guests like talking to me - a chatterbox and a history freak. My wife lost her tolerance towards my stories around 30 years ago. Now, I have a proof that the best guests prefer good discussion to cold, professional treatment. More

Being fans of Downton Abbey, this was a great place to experience the ambiance of mansion living. We entered through the kitchen and climbed the narrow winding stairs to the servant quarters. Our room was previously one of those, but it was not doubled in size. The mansion is built of stone throughout and just glows with the 1800s timeline.... More

It was one of the best places that I could have opted for. The architecture itself is pretty impressive and added to that the interiors and the rooms too are done artfully. The services and the host truly scored at the place. The rooms are nice and comfortable and perfectly friendly for those who want a peaceful and impressive stay... More

We spent 9 nights at the Silverstone B & B while in Philadelphia visiting family and friends. Last year, we'd stayed at a hotel in the same area and enjoyed it; however, now I can't imagine coming to Chestnut HIll and staying anywhere other than the Silverstone. Inside and outside, the place is beautiful. Wonderful to be able to cook... More

I am very proud that you wrote about warm atmosphere and at the same time hosts "not being intrusive". Well... I am a chatterbox, and it is not easy for me to make omelets in silence. It looks when dealing with you I focused on cooking and there was no smoke coming from the kitchen door. Thanks, Romuald More

We were planning a trip to the East Coast, but because of my husband's health concerns, we can't always be certain they will actually happen. We made reservations with Yolanta, the innkeeper, for our trip, and within a week of the trip, we felt we had to cancel, giving her time to book the room. We played it by ear,... More
