The hosts are gracious and welcoming. The house is old-fashioned, lovely, comfortable and cozy. Their garden is well-tended and attractive. The location is very handy for those visiting Swarthmore College. Breakfast is tasty and nicely presented. The rooms are exactly as shown on their website.

Bob, It was great to welcome you back to our B&B. It's always gratifying when guests return, especially after a lengthy hiatus, and they settle right in. Cathy and I hope to see you again. Chris

It was our pleasure to have you with us, especially for a lengthy enough stay that we had an opportunity to get to know you. With your son a freshman, we hope we'll get to see you again and again over the next 3 years.
