Private bedroom and bath with your own entrance. Part of larger renovated carriage house on 2 1/2 acres in the heart of the Main Line. Rustic setting with barn, gardens, and off-street parking, all a short walk from trains, shops, and restaurants.

Le logement

This bright, spacious room has a queen-sized bed with a firm mattress, sofa, coffee table, and writing alcove. There is a large wardrobe for hanging clothes and a dresser with several drawers; big south and west windows; hardwood floors; wifi (no TV); a mini-refrigerator, toaster oven, and plates, bowls, glasses, and utensils (including bottle opener). The bathroom has a shower (no tub), soap, clean towels, and a hair dryer. There are extra pillows and blankets in the room. An iron and ironing board can be brought into the room upon request.

If you wish to have a third person in the room, there is an additional charge of $15 per night and a single, foam mattress can be provided (know that this will make for a tight fit). We ask that guests not sleep on the sofa.

You have your own private entrance and off-street parking. Please read the rest of the details in the listing so you are not surprised by anything -- our overly friendly dog, for instance, the sound the heating pipes make when they are heating up, or our commitment to conservation of natural resources.

Accès des voyageurs

You have access to your room at all times through your private entrance with a keypad lock -- no key involved, so check in, arrivals, and departures can accommodate any schedule! You are welcome to wander the gardens, sit on the long, covered porch outside your room, or visit the hens. Our laundry facilities are not accessible to guests, but there are laundromats nearby.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We are an early-to-bed, early-to-rise working couple, both academics, with a school-aged child. We live full-time in the rest of the house, sometimes work from home during the days, and generally at least one of us leaves before it is light for work, school, or track meets, so if you are a light sleeper and wish to sleep in, bring ear plugs! We welcome guests from all walks of life and will greet you when you arrive, if you wish, and are happy to offer suggestions for where to go and what to do, but you should expect to have most of your time to yourself. You can always reach us by email, text, or phone if you have questions or problems. We will wash your dirty dishes and empty garbage cans every day. Towels and sheets are washed once a week; more frequent washings of sheets and towels available upon request and for an additional cleaning fee.

Autres remarques

We have chickens (no roosters!), two cats, and one exuberant Catahoula Leopard Hound. The dog roams the property; be prepared for welcoming leaps and the occasional muddy paw.

You may hear us come and go through the main back door and discern soft guitar and piano strains. Also, our work sometimes calls us to the hospital or college at unusual hours, in addition to the regular comings and goings for work, school, or track meets.

Two aspects of the room that some guests have mentioned: the mattress on the bed is very firm, and the heating pipes click as they expand to pump hot water in to heat the room. I recommend that you bring earplugs if you think this noise might bother you. Alternatively, simply turn the central heating way down at night and use the electric space heater provided.

Smoking: No smoking is permitted anywhere in the room or on the property.

Pets: Our menagerie is at capacity, so we cannot accommodate your pets.

Quiet hours: In the tradition of Ben Franklin, we tend to go to bed quite early and get up even earlier, and so we appreciate quiet in the evenings.

Conservation of resources: We are a conservation-minded family and welcome guests who are also environmentally oriented; we ask that you be considerate of water and energy usage (e.g., limit length of showers, turn off lights and heat when you leave the room).

Care of room: In addition to the general rules above, we ask the following:

- If it rains, be sure that the old, exterior door is closed and that the storm window is down in the west window.

- Please let us know if you will not be returning on any given evening during your stay so we know whether or not to leave outside lights on for you.

- Turn lights off when you leave the room; if you plan to return after dark, you can plug in one or both of the energy-saving night lights in the room (the small round white ones, not the orange reading lights attached to the bed).

- If you do not have a car (and thus we cannot tell if you are here or not), let us know when you are ready for us to collect and wash dirty dishes.

We have posted in the room itself reminders of some of these rules and other requests (e.g., please remove shoes when entering, particularly high heels).

Please do not hesitate to ask if you have questions about anything we haven't mentioned.

I'd like to write a bad review so that the room may not be booked the next time I visit, but I just can't do it. The space is great, the grounds beautiful and very peaceful. We were there to drop our daughter at school and we couldn't have asked for a better place to relax in peace. Alison, her husband and their dog are great!

As always, this is a wonderful place to stay. I've been back many times. The hosts are gracious and interesting. The area is beautiful and convenient. This is much nicer than staying in a hotel. A treat.

I arranged a two-night stay here for my sister, and she loved it. Her review: "Alison’s is exactly as advertised, a lovely suburban retreat, within easy walking distance of all amenities but retaining a sense of the property’s history as part of the last farm in the area.  I wish I could have stayed much longer!"

I have visited twice and have found a beautiful home away from home. Alison has preplanned a wonderful retreat- with cereal and milk if you are hungry, a ton of local information to help you explore the area and tea for the soul. The space is beautiful, clean and comfortable. I look forward to planning my trip to Philly, and will definitely stay here. Thank you Alison for the relaxing retreat.

I stayed in the private suite at Allison's beautiful home while I was working 12-hour night shifts at a local hospital. So, unfortunately there was no fun involved on my visit. That's why I chose "good" instead of "great" to describe my visit. All I did was work & sleep Allison was very accomodating and considerate of my schedule (especially my sleep schedule). She even offered to let me sleep-in and check out late on my last day if I needed... that was very nice and unexpected. We didn't get to meet, but I did meet her husband who is a pleasant guy. Her home and property are beautiful and in a great suburban location... close to restaurants, shops and the train station (SEPTA). Everything she says about the accomadations are true and accurate, so you won't have any surprises. The suite was in her home, but with a private entrance and bath. Everything was very clean & nice and the bed was comfy. I would definitely stay again if I could only get my work schedule to coinside with her room availability. That's why I have only stayed once... so far. I'll keep trying though. Thanks Allison!

We loved our stay here! The history behind the house is so special, the grounds around the home were peaceful, the patio by the entrance was pretty, and it was a great location to everything we needed. What a charming area! It was just the respite we were hoping for and we would love to visit again.

Alison's place was cute and charming. The location was very convenient and exactly what I was looking for--quiet oasis right outside Philly. Although I didn't use it, the train station is within walking distance. Starbucks and Wholefoods is also a 10 min walk away. It wasn't that big of a deal for me--but there's no tv in the studio. So if you like ending your day with some Netflix, bring a tablet. Also, the house can be a little noisy in the morning--bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper and like to sleep in.

I am a college professor. When I am not teaching or writing, I love working in the garden, hiking in the mountains, and spending time with my daughter and our puppy. I also love solitude and silence.
