About this listing
Large 3 story recently renovated historic home.
The house is in a quaint private courtyard, which is a minor tourist attraction. Betsy Ross walks through each day. While a little hard to find, it’s on a walking street, it's a quiet gem.

Interaction with Guests
We respect our guests' privacy but are available for questions or conversation by phone or in person.
The neighborhood is great. I have lots of restaurant recommendations.
Old City has many art galleries, clothing boutiques, cafes and restaurants.
Just 2 blocks from Ben Franklin's house, the key on his famous kite came from the house across the courtyard, at least that is what the internet says.
There is easy access to public transportation. The subway is 2 blocks away, buses are even closer, and the regional rail is 6 blocks. It is a 15 min subway ride to Amtrak. The convention center is 7 blocks away.
Great place in a very nice neighborhood, old part of the city. Beautiful courtyard. Spacious. Thanks Russ!
This was my first experience with Air bnb and it was great! Our friends who chose to stay in a hotel were quite envious. Russell's home was charming, quiet, stylish, comfortable and had the best location imaginable. We appreciated the access to wifi and the outdoor patio area was lovely. We would definitely stay here again & recommend it to our friends.
Superb spot in a historic part of Philadelphia. Close to neat restaurants and the port. Russell was a great host. We recommend a stay chez lui !!!!
Excellent location, neat, historical neighbourhood!! Russell couldn't have been a better host. Beautiful home!! We'll return, soon ...
Great location - walking distance to lots of the historic sights. Russell was very accommodating and helpful. Quiet neighborhood. We had a great stay.
We had a great time at this house. Russell made us feel very welcome. The location is great.
Everything about this unit is as described. Russ and Suzana were great hosts--available if you needed anything. This is the best location to access the historical district and we passed it several times on tours. You will feel like you are in stepping back into a page of history! Highly recommend this airbnb. Clean, convenient, unique & safe. 3 days here was not long enough.
About the Host, Russel
I enjoy living in Old City in Philly. It is a little village in the city with a great local ecosystem of coffee shops and cafes, tech companies and design, all of which I enjoy supporting.
I am a research scientist (biophysics) that travels extensively for work, which is fun, although I always enjoy returning home.
I enjoy running over the Ben Franklin bridge; the views are great and change throughout the day.
