About this listing
Enjoy the best the Fairmount neighborhood has to offer. This comfy room with a full private bathroom is an easy walk to restaurants and bars, the parkway, the Franklin Institute, and the art museum. Bus stop and bike share station are one block away.
The location is the best feature of this spot - it's a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Parkway, the Basilica, and the Art Museum.
The room is on the second floor and has a private bathroom attached. We will offer a continental breakfast. For other meals we suggest you take advantage of the many cafes and restaurants close by.
Interaction with guests
We are available to offer suggestions on places to visit and point out the highlights of the neighborhood. We can also leave you to yourselves, if that's what you'd prefer!
The Fairmount neighborhood has a lot to offer in terms of cafes, restaurants, and night spots. It's also walking distance to the art museum area.
Our house is 1/2 block from a bus stop and 1 block away from a Philly Bike Share station. If you're going to events on the Parkway, though, your best option is probably walking - it's about a 10 to 15 minute walk South. Parking can be difficult in this neighborhood, so we do not recommend renting a car.
Other things to note
We have two cats who are friendly but who will probably hide while you're here. Although the room is (and always has been) a "cat free zone," most of the rest of the house is not. This is something to consider if you have intense cat allergies.
Only two people for this space - no additional guests. No pets (we already have two!) No smoking inside. Please no parties and no loud music late at night. Be sure to keep the doors closed (because of the cats).
