My stay in West Chester with Maggie was perfect. The house was exactly as advertised and was just 3 blocks from my work at West Chester University. The neighborhood was busy with college students but they weren’t a nuisance. I was welcomed home from work like a family member and was invited to spend time with Matt and Maggie for nights out on the porch. Overall, I couldn't have asked for more and I am grateful for the kindness and hospitality shown to me.

I stayed for a little over a month and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Maggie was very welcoming and it felt like a home away from home. After a day's work it felt good coming back "home". I really enjoyed my stay and I recommend staying here!

Maggie did an excellent job making me feel at home during my stay. Her hospitality and kindness certainly brightened my trip which was work/school related. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for the month I was there. The house was comfortable and quiet. There was also plenty to do in the surrounding area only a short walk away during my free time. I would recommend Maggie highly to anyone traveling to West Chester or the Philly area.

Maggie was very accommodating with our arrival time, and helpful with information about the area, giving us great suggestions for places to eat. She struck just the right balance between friendliness and sensitivity to our privacy. Her home is a charming historic building with lots of character, and lovely gardens. We were in the area to see several public gardens and the location was perfect, about halfway between Chanticleer and Longwood Gardens, and also near Mt. Cuba.

I am a married mother of three. My eldest has flown the coop off at college and my second child will be going away in August to finish high school in Europe. We have a third floor that will be empty and why not put it to use doing something I love. Having guest in my home. I grew up in a hotel in the Caribbean on an lsland called Nevis. The hospitality business is in my blood and I enjoy it.
