Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
I enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I frequently use Airbnb when I travel. I'm often traveling and you may have the house to yourself!
I live in a lovely tree lined neighborhood. There are several beautiful parks nearby.

I'd like to mention that there have been issues with the Airbnb site: booking and leaving reviews. A recent guest, wanted to leave a great review to no avail. It's important to me that guests have a good experience.

The space
I have a charming Tudor style house located next to a prominent college in a lovely area of town. There are markets (Wegman's), restaurants, Starbucks and a movie theater with a 1-2 mile radius.
I am located about 50 minutes from Philadelphia, and less than 2 hours from NYC. There is public transportation to both of these cities. There are 5+ colleges located in the area, including Muhlenberg, Lehigh, Lafayette and Moravian.
You will have access to the refrigerator. There is a full bath located near the bedroom, which I usually don’t use when guests are here. I use the half bath off the kitchen.
My home was built in 1938; I treat it with care and try preserve its charm. If you are a large person, you may not be comfortable in my shower.
There is wireless internet. No TV.
My design studio is not in my home, but I sometimes work from home.
I’m traveling less and less these days, so I’m usually around when you’re my guest.
There is some public transportation nearby. There are great parks within walking distance. There is a car rental company (Enterprise) nearby that will pick you up if you want to rent a car.
This rental is for one bedroom with a queen size bed. The room is suitable for 1-2 people at most.
