Our stay in this 1740 Trinity House, designed in concept by William Penn himself, was great. With modern amenities like free and powerful internet, flat screen TV, and air conditioning juxtaposed with rough hewn 18th century rafters, claw foot tub, and commanding circular staircase it was fun postmodern trip through history. The original floorplan has been amended with a full large kitchen bump out which leads to a pleasant little lawn--fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker and a full set of dishes and flatware save one a lot of time as does a capacious washer and dryer in the basement. Steps from the dining options on Main Street, tis is a great location at a fair price,.
Just what I wanted!
Charming old house, not for the unstable or infirm. Cool winding staircase with sturdy rope handrail tested my balance at first but after a few ups and downs I was taking it like a champ! King bed on top floor was so comfortable. Bathroom is compact and adequate. Tub gets slippery, could use a rubber mat. I used a hand towel to stand on and it worked beautifully. Kitchen had everything I needed and I enjoyed sipping my coffee in the back yard.
Great location near Main Street Manayunk but far enough away for a peaceful night’s sleep.
I look forward to my next stay!
Quaint apartment in gem of a little town
Loved our weekend at this unique apartment in Manayunk just up from the Schuylkill River trail, Main street and a slew of shops and restaurants. Cozy describes this apartment well. My husband and our 6'5" son spent 2 nights but didn't have the opportunity to hang out during the day or prepare any meals so I can't speak to that aspect. Not much privacy in the sound department but we didn't care much...The beds were comfy although I did miss my own pillow and cotton bedding. The ceiling fan, ac, and sky light in the top floor master br helped keep the air circulating throughout and whatever outside noise was minimal. The bathroom is on the 2nd floor and is compact. Water pressure in the shower was awesome. The stairs were very steep getting up to the 2nd and 3rd floors but there was a rope and it wasn't an issue for us. Not a place for the infirm, however. And, being very tall, constantly ducking the door frames was essential and may have grown old for my son. The kitchen and outdoor area was nice to hang out and drink our coffee and plot the day and the guitar was a huge bonus! Thank you for leaving that Rob! The apartment was perfectly located. I would highly recommend not having a car or parking it close by for the duration and using Uber or another mode of transport while visiting. Returning late on Friday night, circling numerous times for a parking spot to no avail left us paying in a town lot on an hourly basis. Not a showstopper but good to have known before booking. Definitely need to be agile, adventurous and to appreciate the historical aspect to stay here. I look forward to returning!
Great location!! Comfortable. Well stocked ( dishes, coffee, kitchen stuff, shampoo, towels, etc. ) Stairs to the second and third floors are not for the weak of heart ( or foot). We'd definitely rent again!
Thanks Heather. I agree. spiral staircases are an unusual way to get to bed.
Fun eclectic place
Fun place to stay. Vintage and clean.
This home meets all of the description posted by the owner, charm, space, character.. The stairs are a bit of challenge for older legs, but manageable. The kitchen has everything one needs for a stay. The only complaint we had was the parking, some times not available and very frustrating..
The owner was extremely easy to deal with, pleasant, helpful, handled every question we had.
Manayunk was fun with great restaurants and easy access to all parts of town. We opted for Uber and were easily served.
