Our host Molly was most welcoming. The room was very clean and comfortable. Great value for money with a nice breakfast included. Train and bus service was only a short walk away. A house with a lot of character that makes you feel at home.

My 14-year old daughter and I enjoyed every minute of our overnight with Molly and her husband - we loved how relaxed and friendly they were from our (late) arrival to our reluctant departure today.

Jeff and Molly are very friendly, hospitable people. They make you feel quite at home. The place is nice and cozy. The location is great, the neighborhood is nice, and the surroundings are interesting. A 15-minute drive from the Art Museum and Benjamin Franklin Parkway. A great value!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Germantown Homestay is a private home in the northwest Philadelphia neighborhood of Germantown. The area has historic charm with many homes dating from pre-revolutiony through Victorian times. We are also located within a few blocks of one of the largest and most unique urban parks in the country which boasts trails for all levels of hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and horseback riding. All that Philadelphia has to offer (cultural activities, history, beauty, night life) is waiting for you in center city, a 20 minute ride by train or car. We have one room with ensuite private bath, continental breakfast served in the room and a room for extended stay on the third floor with shared kitchen and bath. Reservations should be made, in advance, by email. No walk up service. ... more   less
