The Fillmore Theater is only two blocks away. Everyone knows our place because of its great looks and vintage style. Plus, no sneaky cleaning fee!

The space

Our home is an 1865 Victorian with many original details and antiques. The guest room is on the third floor with a full bed, wing chair and dresser for guests. Two windows facing south with great view of the Philly skyline and bridge to Jersey. Guests have their own new full bathroom with a large shower. Bedroom has a tall ceiling and good light; ceiling fan and AC unit during the summer.
We have a small Pomeranian dog who stays in the back wing of the house and two cockatiels in the library which is one floor below the guest suite. They only sing in the AM.

Great place. Smells soooo luxurious as you enter the house every day! Feast for the eyes too with all the beautiful period art. Fantastic host - despite my flight delays and very late arrival - Curt was so accommodating, cheery and helpful would totally stay here again when I'm in fishtown next.

The place was great, very clean and comfortable, near great coffee shops and places to walk around in Fishtown; Curt was very kind about an easy checkin and I came/went easily without even seeing them mostly actually, but they were very responsive to text when I had a question and made the whole check in and out process super easy. Would recommend!

This place is the best deal in town, seriously. It's somehow both quiet and in the center of everything. Curt was a great host, everything was clean, check in and check out was seamless. Can't recommend this place enough!

Curt & Troy are a very nice and friendly couple. They are thoughtful and very lovely people. The location is very nearby so much restaurants and bars or beer gardens. Troy & Curt recommended us a few restaurants, which we all tried and where the food was really good. Their house is absolutely amazing, appropriate to the photos and very clean. The dog Leo is such a supercute boy. If I go to Philadelphia, I would definitely stay at their wonderful house again. I hope, our paths would cross in the future.
