About this listing
My place is close to Allens Lane Train Station (2 blocks), which goes into Center City Philly; picturesque Chestnut Hill, historic Germantown, beautiful Fairmount Park & several nearby restaurants; 1/2 hr. drive to Center City. You’ll love my place because of the sunny and beautiful guest room, friendly neighborhood and nearness to public transportation. My place is good for solo adventurers and business travelers. LGBT Friendly!!
Your room is bright and peaceful. Two very comfortable twin size beds, a chest of drawers, desk and chair assure your visit will be enjoyable. Of course, the room is air-conditioned and you have your own TV - just in case you want to catch up on your latest Netflix series...
I want you to feel at home here! You'll have access to both the front and back decks - where you might spot a hummingbird or cardinal. Please come into the kitchen for your breakfast - perhaps a cheese omelette or a light fruit salad - I like to cook - or join me for a cup of tea there at the end of the day, sharing your photos of all the Great Adventures you had...
Interaction with guests
As a native Philadelphian, I LOVE to boast about my city and will be happy to share with you my take on this city's highlights. If you need quiet, I completely understand - but I am a very friendly person, I love to meet people and find out who they are. I am also a Reiki Practitioner and love to provide short, 15min/$15 Reiki sessions for the weary traveler.
W. Mt. Airy is the BEST NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE WORLD! Known for it's diversity - of all kinds - we are a friendly and welcoming neighborhood. It is not unusual to see people sitting on their front porches sharing a meal and glass of wine. Nestled between historic Germantown and trendy Chestnut Hill, it is a 10 min drive to Main St. in Manayunk, a short walk or drive to hiking and biking in Fairmount Park, as well as a short drive or train ride to Center City.
We are a very pleasant 2 block walk from Allens Lane train station, which takes you into Center City Philly. Or, you can take a short 10-15 min drive to Germantown, Chestnut Hill, Manayunk or Fairmount Park - W. Mt Airy offers the best of all worlds.
Other things to note
Please note that we do not serve meat, preferring a basically vegetarian cuisine with occasional inclusions of poultry and fish. I am happily able to accommodate low-salt, sugar-free & gluten-free requests. Of course, if you wish to buy your own meals that include meat, I completely understand, but you might also be interested in my $15 pp Dinner Menu - eating out can get tiresome after the first couple of days!
- No drugs
- W. Mt. Airy is a diverse and LGBT friendly community. So is this home! We are excited to meet you!
Hi! And welcome to my home! We - myself, my son Hayden (when he is home from college), our dog Romeo and cat Nikki - live on a quiet, tree-lined residential street in the W. Mt. Airy section of Phila. I am a RN, Reiki Practitioner (Reiki services available upon request - $15/15 minutes) and Artist. I also love to cook (ask me about the $15pp Dinner Menu Option) and I can accommodate gluten-free, sugar free & vegetarian preferences. I also love to go for walks in this picturesque neighborhood or hiking and bike riding in nearby Valley Green. Sitting on the front porch or back deck, reading or cat-napping - sharing a meal with a friend at home or in one of the many local restaurants - life is good. I look forward to sharing it with you! LGBT Friendly!
