Delicious breakfasts in a stately dining room. Owners Cathy and Chris so helpful. Forgot to pack my umbrella...they had them on hand. Easy walk to the Swarthmore campus where I was visiting my grandaughter who is a student there. As a single woman I felt...More

Cathy and I were so pleased to welcome you into our home and provide a comfortable haven while you were here visiting your granddaughter. Have to say, she was among the most mature, pleasant young Swatties we have had the pleasure of meeting over...More
The hosts are gracious and welcoming. The house is old-fashioned, lovely, comfortable and cozy. Their garden is well-tended and attractive. The location is very handy for those visiting Swarthmore College. Breakfast is tasty and nicely presented. The rooms are exactly as shown on their website.

It was great to welcome you back to our B&B. It's always gratifying when guests return, especially after a lengthy hiatus, and they settle right in. Cathy and I hope to see you again.

It's always gratifying to have a guest take the time to write a review. When you share your home with others, you want them to appreciate it somewhat close to how much you appreciate it yourself.

I stayed for 5 days...More

It was our pleasure to have you with us, especially for a lengthy enough stay that we had an opportunity to get to know you. With your son a freshman, we hope we'll get to see you again and again over the next 3 years.
Nice clean, cozy, comfortable B&B close to the college and a short train or car ride to downtown Philly. We stayed here because my son was attending a soccer ID camp and it was walking distance to the school

Thank you for taking the time to write-up a review. I remember you and your son were heading up north to another soccer camp after this one - a busy summer.
