Perfect for our 3 Generations Gathering
"My wife and I brought our Children (40 & 35 ) with their significant others and our 3 GrandChildren (12,5,2) to Philadelphia. Ellen's Row House was perfect for our Gathering. Plenty of space, bedrooms and bathrooms to go around. The kitchen is very large and open and the living room comfy with couches and chairs. Most nights, we finished our day sitting out on the front stoop, chatting up the next door neighbors and watching the friendly neighborhood people go by. South Philly is intersected by Broad Street with its buses and the Subway, and East Passyunk Ave with its cool neighborhood, restaurants, shops and people. We would strongly recommend this property . Ellen is great with her communication and customer service. A very, very nice place to stay."

"After 40+ years of summers in Maine, we found a new vacation home that suited my multi-generational family's needs (older, non-stair climbing parents, Boomers wanting a place to relax yet with plenty to see and do that didn't take all day (or two) to get to, 20-somethings up for fun) beautifully. The house is handsomely and comfortably appointed, clean, well-stocked, roomy and in a perfect location. Early mornings on the deck with a hot cup of something watching the sun rise over the river were blissful. Evening cocktails and dinner on the deck watching water sports enthusiasts was thoroughly entertaining. Even in late July/early August the weather was window-open comfortable most of our three week visit. I could have stayed on the deck all day, but the local sights (Ringing Rocks, Washington Crossing, Breden Preserve, the bikeable/walkable Delaware Canal towpath, local shops, etc.), places to dine (Owowcow Ice Cream, Black Bass Inn, Maria's Homemade Pierogies...), and of course the river itself called to us. Our hostess Joan couldn't have been more responsive or helpful when we had questions. Kudos to Joan (and our thanks) for creating such a welcoming home/spot for vacationing. We hope to return next year!"

Just Perfect! Photos do NOT do this house justice--much nicer & larger.
"We were surprised (judging by the photos on this site) how large the home was and it was IMMACULATE! Fabulous & cozy living room. Lots of space and cozy beds & couches/armchairs. Great wooded area--we saw deer and turkeys. Owners were a DREAM to work with and return our deposit money almost IMMEDIATELY (which was a nice surprise). We attended the Kutztown Folk Festival (awesome) and ate at the Washington House (after finding a brochure for it at the house)--what a fascinating historic building. Nockamixon Park--so close by and beautiful! What a great sunroom off the garage--would be perfect for a "teenagers hangout" if we had any teens with us. We would absolutely recommend this house!!"
