We enjoyed an all too brief stay at the historic Spruce Hill Manor - Janet was a lovely host - very friendly and helpful and the room was just perfect. Janet treated like family and the B&B was in a terrific location - quiet yet close to the city.

She's the type of person you have no choice but to instantly like. She's warm and inviting, and as a result, her home feels... More

I was in a wedding in Philly this past weekend and the whole wedding party stayed at this B&B, basically making it our own private getaway. Janet was amazing and accommodating without being overbearing. We had so much fun because of how private, unique and convenient it was to get ready for the wedding there. The rooms are BIG and...

We stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast over the 4th of July weekend. The house looks great, and has a wonderful atmosphere. The hostess, Janet, was very sweet, and attentive, making us feel welcome at the house. The breakfast was delicious, with a wide variety of options - overall we were very satisfied with our stay.

房東Janet是位非常熱心的女主人,一到房間讓我們稍作休息後,馬上詳盡地解說房間設備、交通環境,每天早上Janet都會提供豐盛早餐,早上有時還會開車送我們到車站或比較進的景點,Janet真的非常照顧我們! Janet is so enthusiastic! She shared every detail of nearby spots and transportation. The room is exactly as the pictures in the website which is elegant and comfortable. I also enjoyed the breakfast there, Janet prepared hot coffee,tasty cookies, and fruits. I really had a great time there!

Spruce Hill Manor is a beautiful victorian house, 5 min away from the train station. The house and rooms are enchanting, but nothing beats the hospitality of the innkeeper, Janet.
