Novel experience; convenient location

I can't recommend this property enough. The suite and property and grounds are stunning, and Vittoria is so helpful and accommodating during the planning and while there. We had to come into town quickly for a funeral, and she made everything so easy for us during a challenging time.

The location couldn't be better. It's a lovely walk through the historic neighborhood to all of the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill. It's also easy to get to other parts of the city. The suite itself is very nicely appointed and it's a lovely little oasis. We loved having the extra half bath and full kitchen as well. The kitchen is on the lower level, which is nice so as not to wake other members of the family. We will definitely stay here again.

Lovely estate to stay at. Much nicer than a hotel!

All of our questions were answered very quickly and thoroughly. Check in was smooth as all details were emailed to us before arrival. A very unique place to stay v.s. a traditional hotel. Make sure you take everything you will need including shampoo and soap even dish soap and coffee as there is none provided. Exploring the grounds would have been lovely if we went at a bit warmer time of the year but that would have to be another time. Very pretty and private. The antique furniture is so beautiful in the house and the bathroom is very up todate (thank goodness). Comfortable bed. Internet connection was spotty. Close to everything you need and about 25 min to the city. Gorgeous neighbourhood. Thank you for a lovely stay.

As a property manager in the USVI managing over 45 homes I found High Hollow to be an excellent place to stay. Very quiet and relaxing, clean, and the owner's were very accommodating. I would recommend High Hollow to anyone looking for a nice quiet place in Chestnut Hill!

Estate in the City

I was born and raised in Chestnut Hill, but I have lived in Idaho since 1978. When planning to visit for 8 days in September for a family wedding and semi-annual visit, my husband and I decided we did not want to impose for that long on any of my brothers and their families. Not really expecting to find any options on VRBO for Chestnut Hill, I was delighted to find this one bedroom one-and-a-half bath guest suite in a neighborhood with which I was familiar. The listing description and photos were quite accurate. The unit was very well equipped, clean, and very comfortable. The roomy living area with large table allowed my husband to work each morning for a couple of hours while I relaxed and read before heading up the hill to the main part of town. The 12-minute walk up the hill passed by many beautiful homes and provided some healthy exercise. A trail leading through the woods to the Wissahickon was close by for those interested in hiking. There are several restaurants and shops within a 12-20 minute walk or short drive. Despite the availability of restaurants and coffee shops, we enjoyed the ability to have breakfast in our unit at our leisure as well as late afternoon snacks.

I would highly recommend this property for those who want an escape to a beautiful, historic estate in a quiet, bucolic setting while at the same time wanting an occasional meal out or trips to center city on the train. Vittoria was extremely responsive and helpful. We have already recommended this property to both friends and relatives and will definitely stay there each time we visit.

We could not have pick a more romantic place to stay for our anniversary. The Suite was so charming and beautiful! The ground were lovely, the kitchen well equipped to make a romantic dinner. We're from Phila and this was an escape without the travel. We've travel to VA, MD and Lancaster for annisverary weekend getaways, but this was by far the best. Will be returning for more weekend stays!
