My husband and I had a lovely time at Manayunk Chambers Guest House. We had tickets for a show at the Kimmel Center and wanted to find a quiet place outside the city. Manayunk fit the bill. We spent a delightful time exploring Manayunk. Fascinating shops and unique dining. It was easy to take the train to the city to attend the show. Mark is a wonderful host! Every need was thoughtfully anticipated. He did everything to ensure that our brief stay was comfortable. Mark is well connected with the community and great recommendations. Breakfast was sooo good. I don't know how he does it, but our eggs were like little clouds of perfection. The Eggs Benedict had just the right amount of sauce, the toast was crisp. Yummy pastries on the side. Highly recommend. We look forward to returning.

Thank you so much!!! I am so glad you enjoyed the charm of our town of Manayunk. The 20 minute train ride to center city is a great plus since the Manayunk Station is just a couple of blocks from here. It was a pleasure creating a delicious breakfast for such a lovely couple and I look forward to your return.

Property's Favorite Review
If I could rate this establishment 10 stars, I would give it. Our son lives a half a mile from the guest house and we arrived early. No problem for our gracious host Mark. He greeted us and could not be more welcoming and helpful. When you step into the house, you are transformed to another ERA. I was amazed by the particular detail to every decoration in the living room and in our bedroom, You will love staying here. I loved the bathroom hidden under the panelling under the stairs. The designs of this house were breathtaking. The living room has a refrigerator stocked with beverages and Mark is so attentive to your needs. He is also a wealth of information in the area and is so interesting. He makes you feel so important. Our son came back with us before dinner and Mark was talking with us about travel and the next morning remembered our son's name and asked if we wanted to take any of the leftover breakfast items for him. We stayed the Parisian room. I felt like I was in in Paris. The bed was very comfortable and the fireplace was an added bonus. As for breakfast, it was unbelievable. On the table was juice and a generous berry cup with yogurt and granola on the table. Then Mark prepared the most delicious warm pastries for the table. They were blueberries muffins, croissants (chocolate, everything and plain), butterscotch scones and cheese bread. If this wasn't enough food, he brought out poached eggs with hollandaise sauce and sauteed spinach. If you visit Manayunk, I would highly recommend to stay here. I know my husband and I will be here often. Thank you Mark for a fabulous stay.

Absolutely amazing hosts and breakfast. We only live 5 miles away, but choose Manayunk Chambers as a quick getaway and are so glad we did. The breakfast alone makes it worth coming back - handcut farm raised bacon, homemade muffins and croissants (6 kinds!), homemade quiche, on premises espresso, and fruit parfait. Super friendly hosts that made you feel like you were visiting best friends. I highly recommend this place.

We stayed at Chambers to be close to Drexel School of Medicine's Queen Lane campus. Mark couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. We spent a nice evening playing board games in the beautifully decorated parlor. Slept great that night in the very comfortable room and bed, also beautifully decorated. The adjoining bathroom - dedicated to our room - was perfectly appointed. Breakfast, all home-made, was absolutely gourmet. I needed to get back home, so I took the train - no more than five minutes walk from Chambers - to the airport in the morning, which all worked perfectly. Mark let my wife use the Wifi for work the next day. This was particularly generous because we only stayed for the one night. I can't recommend Chambers and its gracious host more highly. The neighborhood is safe, quiet and a little quirky. The street is quite narrow and tightly parked, but we were able to park in the driveway next to the house which was, again, most convenient.

Spectacular stay at the Manayunk Guest Chambers House this weekend. Had a girls overnight at this property after having a professional make-up consultation with a Beke Beau. Loved the historical details of the home and the uniqueness of each room. Since we were the only guests there we had the full use of the front room for Happy Hour and late night conversation. This worked well since our room was tight for three adult women. The owner supplied an incredible variety of wines and snacks which we were free to enjoy. And the breakfast the next morning! That was the highlight of the entire weekend. Beginning with an assortment of freshly baked breads, scones and muffins to enjoy with a cup of coffee. Then on to the fruit course of poached pears and clotted cream. And finally, the entree was a poached egg on thinly sliced multigrain toast with a piece of grilled ham, grilled asparagus and a side of roasted tomatoes. It was off the charts delicious and the presentation was something you would typically only get in a five star restaurant. While the property offers many amenities it is worth noting that the guest rooms are small and the bathroom is shared and outside the bedroom. We made it work for one night but it might not be for everyone. And parking could have been “quite challenging” but the owner gladly gave up his driveway so we had VIP parking. Finally, the owner could not have been nicer nor done more to accommodate us and make our stay enjoyable. He was truly a gem! If we find ourselves back in Manayunk we know exactly where we will stay....

Thank you Loren, for writing such a nice review of your experience with us. I am so glad that you all had such a "spectacular stay" and your upgraded breakfast. You are such lovely women whom I enjoyed sharing our home. Since the guest house is 143 years old to date, our guest rooms are built to accommodate our guests for sleeping and we encourage dining to take place exclusively in our spacious front parlor only, where I offer the facilities for you to do so. Our guests enjoy the Parlor to mingle and break bread and share wine with the other guests. If you may also be unaware, ALL of our guest rooms do offer their own "Private Bathrooms", which are En-Suite (in the rooms). The exception is the City Suite, that you chose to accommodate 'three adults'. We purposely put the entrance to your bathroom just outside the City Suite door to give the guests in that room a greater sense of privacy while using it. I will gladly show you our other unique guest rooms during your next visit with us. Stay well and I look forward to seeing you on your return visit.
