Interaction with Guests
We are both busy professionals so are often at work, but fortunately we work nearby and will be able to provide you with all necessary information regarding the house, Fairmount, and Philadelphia in general. We are lifelong Philadelphians (and major foodies!) so are always willing to offer great restaurant recommendations. We are here to help out with any question or concern you may have!
Just blocks north of Center City / Rittenhouse, Fairmount is a residential oasis in an urban setting. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, but the hustle and bustle of the city is easily accessible by public transportation, cab, or car.
We are within walking distance to Fairmount Park and its running trails (alongside the Schuylkill River).
We are excited to give recommendations for local restaurants, museums, parks, and other attractions. Don't be shy - just ask!
Stops for major bus routes (including 7, 33, 48) within walking distance. Two blocks from easy taxi access on Fairmount Avenue. Short cab or bus ride from 30th Street Station (Philadelphia's main train station), Suburban Station, and Market East Station.
Parking is available in a private lot just 2 blocks from our home. Free street parking is available and easy during the day but becomes more difficult at night (though not impossible).
Other Things to Note
As mentioned, we have 2 cats, and one dog so please - no cat/dog allergies or cat/dog haters.
Also, if both of our guest rooms are rented, you will be sharing the bathroom with another guest.
Joe and Brady were amazing hosts. They had some amazing food recommendations in the area and great advice on where to go in the city during the day. The room was clean and super comfortable. Hot tub was exactly what you need after a long cold day in the city. The their cats are two of the friendliest cats I have seen. I would definitely recommend staying here.
I was in town for the Philly marathon. Their location is a 10 minute walk from the starting area and was incredibly convenient.
Had a wonderful stay in Philly at Joseph and Brady's home and can highly recommend them. A clean, spacious, comfortable room and run of the house with friendly, courteous hosts. And two very friendly cats and one dog! Fairmont is a good neighborhood for relaxing and an easy jumping-off point for exploring Philly.
Experience with the host was terrific-
Neighborhood was great-
Listing was just as expected-
The neighborhood is very nice, there are lots of nice little restaurants. Joe and Brady were great hosts, we felt very comfortable from the start. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at their home again.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay with Joe and Brady. Their house was lovely, they were beyond accommodating and I had a great experience. I recommend it highly to anyone traveling through Philly. They give great restaurant recommendations as well.
Joe and Brady are awesome hosts. Their home is clean and neat. The bed in the guest bedroom is amazing. So so comfortable, which was super important for us since we were running in the Philly marathon the next morning. It's a super easy walk to downtown, museums, lots of restaurants - a fantastic area to stay in. We drove there, found parking and never had to get in the car again till we left. This is a great place to stay, highly recommended!

I am a recent law school graduate from Philadelphia who has lived in California, Iowa, DC and now back in Philly. I love to travel when I'm not working and enjoy taking long runs and swims (when I have time.) And when I'm not working at the law firm, I enjoy curling up with a great novel.
