More to come on this.
Staying with Julie and Paul was a great experience. I felt like I was at my home.
I hope to stay there again.
The warm welcome I got from Julie and her family made me feel like I was among friends. She is a thoughtful host (e.g. tea and coffee-making supplies in the room), and the house is spacious and, to my taste, beautiful. I look forward to a return visit!
What a wonderful way to settle into Philly for a few days. I came to town for a course, and my stay with Julie and Paul was basically retreat-style. A beautiful room to call my own amidst a cozy and welcoming home. Breakfast each morning was a delicious way to start my day. I felt very welcome! I'd highly recommend. :)
Came in on a holiday weekend so there were more people there than normal. Plenty of room here and we had access to other parts of the house. Lots of little extras like sample products, tea and coffee in the room, snacks and a space heater. Julie made sure we had info about what was happening in town, and transportation info. Definitely would stay again.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Julie is a great host. I enjoyed my stay in PA. Her house is close to downtown as well, just need to take one bus to get there. Hope to be back in PA again someday!
Julie and Paul were great hosts-welcoming and friendly. The room was very pleasant and comfortable, and there were lots of options for breakfast. They are located within easy walking distance to public transport into town and it was simple to get to them by bus from the train station when I arrived-even in the snow! Will definitely stay again if I'm back in the area.
My Stay at Julie's place was wonderful! Everything was very clean, breakfast was great, and Julie and Mark were very nice and accommodating. Thank you so much for all the help!
This was our second stay with Julie and Paul. Our experience was similar: Comfortable, friction free. Wonderful breakfast fixings. We'd be more effusive, but we don't want them to get so popular that they will be too booked up for when we want to stay there in the future.
You really feel home here: very welcoming and friendly family, nice house in a nice town, not far from Philly... Everything was perfect ! Thanks again :).
