311 Kater Street Is A Historic Rowhome Located On A Quiet Tree Lined Street

311 Kater Street is a historic Philadelphia rowhome located on a quiet tree lined, cobble stone street in Queen Village. We are right in the middle of everything, including Old City historic Philadelphia, bars, restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing. You can't find a better location in Philadelphia!

Queen Village is a great mix of quiet tree lined streets (like Kater Street), historic Philadelphia, and great bars and restaurants. It is an area that appeals to all tastes, and will provide countless activities for everyone!

The house itself is a 3 story rowhome. The ground floor is the main living area (with a comfortable pull out full size bed), a gourmet kitchen, and a dining room. The second floor has a bedroom with a full size bed, along with the bathroom. The third floor is a spacious loft with queen size bed, high ceilings, and great skylight. There is plenty of room for 6 guests, and the house comes complete with a fully stocked kitchen, bedding, soap, shampoo, coffee, tea, and all the basics for a relaxing and comfortable stay.

About Michael Palmer

I grew up in Connecticut, and have been living in Philadelphia for about 10 years. My wife grew up in Rio De Janeiro, Brasil, and has been living in Philadelphia for about 15 years. We met in 2007, and have lived together at 311 Kater Street since 2009. We recently got married in November, 2014 in Belize, and moved across town to our new house. We called 311 Kater our home for almost 6 years, and are thrilled to rent it out so everyone can enjoy it as much as we did!

Michael Palmer purchased this house in 2008

Nice place in nice location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 3 day stay here. It was our first trip to Philadelphia so honestly we were only there to sleep. Too much to do in the city to stay indoors and too many good places to eat to bother with cooking.

We had no problem walking to the old city and historic area. The location suited us fine, we felt like locals coming home to our own townhouse. South street is a big night life street if you want to check it out, or if not I didn't notice any noise problem. I used a parking lot recommended by Michael and $20 a day seemed reasonable for a big city.

We enjoyed our stay, thanks

So much nicer than staying in a hotel...

  • 5 of 5

It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel, we got a better feel for Philadelphia. Our family of four adults only stayed for one night, so we did not fully use the amenities offered by the home. It was very clean and the location is great! We were able to easily walk to the Historic District and there were a lot of small shops and restaurants in the immediate neighborhood.

We enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

311 Kater is clean and attractive row house in the Queen Village neighborhood. The location is a block from South Street, which a prior review called "sketchy". We disagree; the better description is funky and fun. We felt very safe. People are friendly. Mothers pushing strollers. Be sure to have dinner at Ela, a first-rate restaurant just around the corner. Independence Hall is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk through a neighborhood of row houses.

Cozy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and myself enjoyed a great 4 days in this home. Very clean and comfortable. The home is close to many stores in the area and just a few blocks south of market street. Parking was easy, we utilized the parking garage and it's only a 5 minute walk to the home. If you like a place with lots of history then philly is the place to go. This home is perfect to stay while venturing about. I would definitely recommend to family and friends. I plan on staying again in the spring.
