The Gathering Place had everything we needed and more. The home's design and furnishings were classical turn-of-the-century while still having all the modern conveniences, including beautiful bed and bathroom linens, a fully stocked kitchen and Wi-fi. The owners came over personally upon our arrival to give us a quick tour of the home and made us feel like family in town for a visit. The Mount Airy area had so much to offer in restaurants, shops and breathtaking architecture and it was only a quick 20 minute drive to the heart of historical downtown Philly (having a private driveway at the house was a definite bonus too). Thanks to the ample supply of brochures provided by the owners, we were able to find some great places to visit over the weekend, including the Mutter Museum and Eastern State Penitentiary. We enjoyed all that Philly had to offer and were able to rest easily at the end of each day in our comfortable beds in a peaceful and quiet neighborhood. While the weather outside in mid-February was a bit chilly, we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the City of Brotherly Love thanks to the Mitchell's warm hospitality.
