Property description


Nestled on 18th Century farmland in the heart of Philadelphia's famous Main Line, the Penn Valley Cottage is convenient to all major universities and cultural sites in the Greater Philadelphia region.

Completely private, amid an acre of stunning gardens, the Cottage has a cathedral ceiling, king-sized bed in the second floor bedroom, washer-dryer, bathroom with shower, fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, and large living room with extra-long trundle twin beds and comfortable 7' sofa suitable for sleeping. The highest rated air conditioner, plus a hefty, state-of-the-art dehumidifier have been recently installed to assure guests of a natural, safe, odor-free environment.

Year-round views of surrounding 100% organic working gardens (blackberries, peaches, apples, blueberries, persimmons and plentiful herbs); summer pool privileges; and off-street parking are included in this rental package. Excellent restaurants, shops and markets nearby.
