We loved our stay at Silverstone B&B. We live in Center City Philadelphia and decided to go on a weekend trip to get out of the city for a night, and had a wonderful time. The B&B is located just minutes from the train station, and we took our bikes with us, which they let us keep outside. Yolanta's husband even offered to let us keep them in the basement, but we ended up just leaving them out for the night. Yolanta made sure we were acquainted with Chestnut Hill and was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area. She provided us with some tips and recommendations for places to visit.
We felt very comfortable in the B&B, which is an old 1800's mansion with an annex addition. The rooms and common areas are light and airy and carefully decorated. When we told Yolanta that we are studying architecture, she shared with us a story of some former guests from Japan who had given her a book of Louis Kahn houses in the area. She went out of her way to find us the book so we could take a look at it.
There is a small kitchen for guests to use and a common area with music playing and books to read. Outside there are gardens and a gazebo; everything is carefully place and thought out.
Breakfast was wonderful. We were able to choose what we wanted to eat: eggs, sausage, waffles, toast, cereal, orange juice, tea, etc. The breakfast room is very pleasant and there is a porch just off the breakfast room where you can read the paper.
We stayed in the annex, which consists of three bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Since we were the only people in the annex at the time, we ended up having the bathroom to ourselves, although we wouldn't have minded sharing with others. The room was very clean and the tempur pedic mattress was terrific!
The Silverstone B&B is a great place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, and unobtrusive stay. We were able to keep to ourselves in a quaint and cozy setting and had no complaints. A very cute location and all in all wonderful time!
