Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a lovely, peaceful stay at Milena and Richard's beautiful home. We were in town for a (email hidden) Inn and wanted to stay nearby, so the location of this B&B was perfect. Our room was calm, quiet and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed exploring the nearby Morris Arboretum, running in Wissahickon Park (the entrance is a couple blocks away), waking up to birdsong, and chatting with Milena and her daughters - who were wonderful hosts - over delicious, fresh-baked bread at breakfast. We would definitely stay here again when we are next in Philadelphia.

  • Milena and Richard were very friendy and offer a nice and comfortable room in their lovely home. The neighbourhood is very nice and offers some good shopping and eating out at close proximity.
    Milena gave us good tips on where to go and what to see. All in all a perfect B&B for sighseeing in Philadelphia.

    May 2014
  • We stayed with Milena and Richard for three nights. The room was clean, the breakfast each morning was delicious and fresh (Milena is a wonderful baker), and the whole family was friendly and helpful. Milena is a wealth of information about the area, which was really terrific since our daughter, who we were visiting, is new to Philly; Milena's great tips helped us all. We look forward to going back.

  • I was in town for a conference in Conshohoken and thoroughly enjoyed my three night stay. My room, with private bath, was clean and warm. Milena and Richard were both really friendly and made me feel at home. The nearby Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy neighborhoods are just a stone's throw away, with great restaurants and lots to explore. Will definitely look to stay here again next time!

  • Milena and Richard were friendly and helpful hosts, their children were very nice and even Jasper the dog seemed pleased to see us each time we returned to their home.

    Milena recommended the perfect bus route into the city and we spent a very interesting day seeing the sights. The huge snowfall during our last week was dealt with quickly by the city and so it didn't disrupt our stay.

    During breakfast, Milena sat with us and we could meet her
    She is a great host
    She gave us some information about the best places for shopping and the most interesting places to visit
    I highly recommend this place to everyone

  • Milena and Richard were excellent hosts! Milena was extremely gracious and welcoming, and gave helpful suggestions for local eats. The room was lovely, with a very convenient private bathroom attached. And breakfast was amazing! The home-cooked bread and scones were mouthwatering. If you are staying several days and plan to see different neighborhoods, the location is central to many things and a great "base of operations." Highly recommended!

  • My friend and me really enjoyed our time staying at Milena's and Richard's farmhouse. Our room was clean and neat. Both are very friendly and help us with everything. We got good advices to spend our time there and to experience Philadelphia. Furthermore, the breakfast was really tasty. We recommend this accomodation for your trip.
