About this listing
Just blocks from Center City, this historic Trinity Home is the perfect place for a getaway in America's oldest city!
Located on a safe, quiet block, and within walking distance to the Subway, Liberty Bell, Constitution Center, and countless restaurants.
Our historic Trinity Home is over 100 years old and full of bright charm. The modern amentities make it a perfect mix of old and new.
There is free street parking on Montrose street and the lot at the end of the block - no permit is required. Additional parking is available on surrounding blocks, but guests should check for permit signs.
Guests have access to WiFi and the 39" flat screen TV with Chromecast and HDMI inputs. Guests will need smartphones and their own Netflix/HBO/HULU accounts to access these services.
Guests may use the kitchen and all its amentities.
Guests should use the under-cabinet fridge next to the range in the kitchen for all of their perishables and chilled food and drinks. Guests are also welcome to use the larger fridge and freezer located in the basement if needed, but the music studio is off limits.
Interaction with Guests
We may or may not be present to greet at check-in and check-out but will always be available by phone and email throughout your stay.
The Hawthorne / Bella Vista neighborhood is teeming with delicious restaurants and bars, the famous 9th street Italian Market, and is a quick walk to the birthplace(s) of the Philadelphia Cheesteak.
The neighborhood is also home to East Passyunk Avenue - which made it onto Food and Wine Magazine's "Best Foodie Streets in America" list.
The neighborhood also includes numerous pocket parks and green spaces, and is just a few blocks away from South Street, Center City, and Old City where you can find lively night life, incredible shopping, and many of America's historic landmarks and museums.
The easy to use Subway system is only 3 blocks from the home. Additionally, there are numerous bus lines that virtually run past your doorstep. Hailing a taxi or grabbing an Uber car is extremely simple as well.
Other Things to Note
The home is antique and therefore all hardwood floors and windows are original and period correct.
Though she will never be around for your stay, we do have a short-haired dog that does not shed.
Due to the age of the house, including its floors and windows, guests should be considerate and gentle with the home. Please do not jump on the floors or slam the windows.
There is no smoking inside the home, but guests may smoke in the backyard, on the 2nd floor balcony or on the stoop in front of the house.
The basement is off-limits as is all of the beer, wine, and liquor that may be in the house.
Pets are not allowed.
The Home was absolutely charming. The decor was perfect, you can tell they took time to add each piece. Enough books to keep you reading your entire stay. The location is steps away from the Italian Market, and a short walk from South St. The home is located on a quiet block. The house was perfect for relaxing after exploring Philly all day long. Will stay here again, as it was a great place.
Phil and Kelsey were super easy to work with and everything went smoothly. The house is in a great location and is clean and as described in the listing. I'd definitely recommend it to others looking to stay in Philadelphia.
Our stay in Philly was perfect. The hoise was great and we could walk everywhere fine. It was a fantastic location and the house had everything we needed. Phil anf Kelsey were very helpful with any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again.
A lovely space, conveniently located within easy reach of the major sports stadiums, the historical city centre and trendy South Street, all of which we enjoyed greatly.
The house is cute and cosy, with a comfortable bed and plenty of space for 2.
Nearby there are a variety of restaurants, cafes and bars, many of which we enjoyed visiting.
The only negative point to this accommodation was parking. In the description of the property, it is stated that there is "ample parking" on the street adjacent to the house: we found that this was not the case. It took us the best part of an hour to find (what we thought was) a parking space, however, we received a ticket the following morning. More up to date information and advice on parking may be useful for future guests, as the parking situation in Philadelphia is a nightmare. As visitors from the UK we found the parking signs really hard to understand, so perhaps a map of 'safe spaces' or advice such as 'don't park in front of hydrants' would have been a blessing!
That was only a small concern, though, and we really loved our stay here - saving up to return already!
I just loved, loved, loved this home. It's not a big space, but it is utilized and decorated in such a way that makes it feel spacious and comfortable. It is in a really pretty part of Philadelphia and just blocks away from the Italian market/district. I enjoyed walking two blocks over to Anthony's Coffeehouse on 9th and Christian for coffee and pastry every morning. Phil and Kelsey were great hosts and easy to communicate with.
A nice and pleasant place to stay and discover Philadelphia.
The house is really charming and close to the center of the city.
It is quiet and well organized by Phil and Kelsey.
The house was as charming as depicted in the photos! The decor is eclectic and unique. My husband and I loved staying there. We lived in Philly for years, so it was fun to go back to visit and stay in such a cute place. We had seen a Trinity before, but it was a treat to stay in one! I think a night light in the bathroom would help for trips down the windy stairs in the middle of the night, for those unfamiliar, like us! It seemed a little farther than 3 blocks to the subway and it's definitely a hike, rather than steps, to Center City, so put on your walking shoes! But it definitely still walkable. A definite recommend!
