Check In
  • My friend and I booked this listing for 3 nights. Maggie worked with us to figure out a way to still stay here even though she would be on vacation. She gave us all of the information we needed to having a great stay, despite the fact that we were unable to meet in person! Maggie's husband and tenant were extremely welcoming to us and helpful if we had any questions at all. And I was absolutely touched that Maggie checked in on us, even though she was away. We had our own space and it was very quiet. The room was exactly as expected and great for two people. Additionally, the location of this home is absolutely perfect! We were able to walk to the main street and have dinner or dessert in West Chester every evening of our stay. I would definitely recommend this listing and host!

  • Maggie is a gracious, thoughtful and completely accommodating host. She treated me as if I was an addition to the family and was superb with her daily communication and cleaning of the room I stayed in and bathroom that I used.

  • Book without hesitation! A fantastic hostess with a very nice and open family, Maggie went above and beyond the simple call of duty and made our stay an extremely pleasant one. The well-kept house is big and beautiful with the charm that older houses of Chester County can offer. There were little to no inconveniences and our room was clean and cozy. We would recommend it to anyone.

  • Maggie was a lovely, responsive hostess. The room was clean and in a wonderful house rich with history. Being walking distance from downtown a real plus.

  • My husband and I had an amazing time at Maggie's. Her 3-year-old daughter is so cute and even if I am usually a little bit scared by dogs, hers is incredibly nice too!
    The house is gorgeous, big and clean and there even is a cute garden. Maggie was adorable and always asked if we wanted wine or anything! We had almost the whole top floor for ourselves and really felt at home. I would definitely recommend Maggie's house!

  • I was there such a short time- but it was sweet as the saying goes!

    It was so cool to get to stay in a home this age: I enjoyed a cup of coffee on the porch in the morning, and soaked up the view of the garden, and wood and wrought iron touches on the house.

    Maggie was a generous and friendly host!

  • My girlfriend and I felt very welcome at Maggie's house and, WOW, what a beautiful house it is! She greeted us and our dog at the door, treated us like family, and made us feel like we were special guests. She and her husband even offered us a bottle of wine to bring to dinner when we found out (at the last minute) that the restaurant was BYOB. The location was ideal, just a few blocks from the very charming downtown area of West Chester. We're looking forward to finding our way back to West Chester for another visit and we won't hesitate to contact them again to book our stay.

  • How wonderful it was to meet Maggie and her husband and stay in their beautiful home.They are a mere 3 blocks to downtown West Chester. Their dog is adorable and their gracious hospitality made me feel right at home.

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.
