We had a great time in Alden and Taryn's place! It was very welcoming with some simple food to help us out and some toys and treats for the pups. It was very spacious with great accessibility to the town. We are originally from the area and were happy to feel at home again in their lovely space.

Alden & Taryn were PERFECT hosts. The apartment was cozy and comfortable. They left very comprehensive information to help us, i.e., transportation, etc. They even left listings of tv stations, and labeled contents of kitchen cabinets, etc. VERY HELPFUL! They also provided lots of "comfort food", which was much appreciated. They are an asset to airbnb.

I grew up in Southeast Tennessee, went to Colorado for college, and ended up in greater Philadelphia for work. I have lived here since 2006. I've played guitar for 15+ years and am a frequenter of local open mics and concerts. Funk, Jazz, and Blues are my favorites. I also love skiing, fly-fishing, and pretty much anything that involves a boat.
