Dara was incredibly welcoming and a very gracious host (she made cookies for us and had bottles of water in everyone room!). She told us about good places to eat or grab a drink that were close by and even dropped us off at the metro station so we didn't have to walk! Her place is gorgeous, located in a nice area, and had plenty of space for our group of five to sleep comfortably. I would definitely stay here again!

I am from Main Line Philadelphia. I went to college in Vermont and returned to my home town after college. I then moved to New England both CT and in the Berkshire mountains while working for Johnson and Johnson. I returned again to Pilly, after my mom suffered a severe stoke and our family business needed help. I currently work in our 3rd generation family business. I enjoy volunteering. I am currently the president of our township Rotary Club, sit on the board for our local farmers market, a member of the Haverford Guild of Craftsman's and in general I enjoy making the community I live and work in a better place.
