Amazing historic mansion - great for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of 12 to stay and work in for the weekend. We held a 2 day planning retreat there and there was plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable, and the large first floor parlor was ideal for round table discussions and social gatherings after our work for the day was done. The location is fantastic for exploring the city too (wish we had had more time for that!). And I would be remiss if I didn't mention the roof deck - it has one of the most stunning views of the city! We were lucky to have mild weather for our weekend there in February, and we ended up having a few meals and meetings up there, and enjoyed it in the evenings as well. Thanks for a great stay!

City digs: dowager queen

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a beautiful area of center city Philadelphia. If you are a walker, everything from morning coffee, sightseeing, shopping, kid friendly activities and evening cocktails are easily in reach.

Make no mistake: her age is showing. A few nails are beginning to lift in the gorgeous hardwood floors and the roof deck stairs made us nervous. It could use some sharp knives and a few decks of cards. (To be honest, since the home is occupied when not leased, we didn't feel comfortable searching too far.) But the hours we spent watching the moonrise over the city of brotherly love on that deck and all (10 of us) sitting around the large granite kitchen island made it worthwhile. Large groups could probably pay a similar amount and all stay at a hotel but you would never get the city flavor like you will in this home.

Thank you, Robertson-Price family for sharing your home.
