The building is a certified historic landmark and is a unique blend of both new and old. If you’re coming to Philadelphia to experience the history or enjoy the fine dining you could not ask for a better location.
*Please make note that the loft bedroom on the second floor has a very low ceiling around 6 feet and possibly even lower in some spots as there are exposed beams.

The Chestnut Lofts ...HomeAway # 179041 (faces rear of building)
The Chestnut Lofts is located is located in Old City which although is steps away from the liberty bell and independence hall also has a very lively night time scene with cafes and restaurants and bars. The pros of this unit is that it is located on the top floor of a 5 story building and oriented facing south toward a parking garage not facing chestnut street so it's much much quieter. Drawbacks being there isn't a waterfront view as you have in the front unit, it doesn't have those huge 20 foot ceilings and the main bedroom is a platform style (the second bedroom is fully enclosed). Please see link here for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/141917
The Chestnut Lofts ...VRBO # 477685 (faces front of building)
This unit does have a water view, has soaring 20 foot ceilings and gets great sunlight. The drawbacks being it's located on Chestnut St so noise can be an issue especially on a weekend night. Please see link for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/477685
(Panama St )Cozy Home in Historic Washington Square ...HomeAway # 3165419
This home is located directly next to our other home listing #583380 (Townhouse in Washington Sq) on a quiet cobblestone walking street. Both homes are nearly identical although "Townhouse in Washington Sq" was recently remodeled with a new kitchen and new bathroom. On the upside it has a washer and dryer where the other does not. You can not be more centrally located than this, very easy walk to Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square, 13th and Sansom as well as Old City. The location is hard to beat. Drawback wise these places are small and they have very challenging stairs.

Charming on Historic Street ... VRBO # 619713
My personal favorite of all our properties. This home is located 258 S. Quince street, if you google images of "Quince street Philadelphia" you will see it has been the subject of many a painting and photograph. The street with all it's cute little walking streets and off shoots is very European/ Old World. It's very tough to drive a car down, more of a cobblestone walking street, making it very quiet, almost an oasis in the middle of the busy city. It's still not too far from the historic sites but certainly not as close as The Chestnut Lofts are. It also has a private back patio with table and 4 chairs. Although it is a trinity, its much larger than the ones we have on Panama st. Drawback wise, Id say it has a lot of stairs and could be an issue for a toddler or someone that has any sort of mobility issue. Please see link for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/619713

Was more than pleased with the accomadations. Very cool apartment with the japanese doors, brick wall and huge arched window. close to subway, and great cafes/restuarnts around in the area.
Philly has much to offer!
Terrific location. We walked or took the free for seniors bus wherever we wanted to go. Place was attractive and comfortable.
The location of this flat is perfect. Close to everything, you want to see in Philadelphia. We easily walked to all the sites (about 4 miles from the flat to the "Rocky Stairs"). I will say that the area has a vibrant night life and the noise machines were MUCH appreciated! It was a perfect place for a girl's weekend.
Clean comfortable and close to everything
Get away with my son- great location for exploring historic sights. Easy parking lot across the street and lots of good restaraunts
Nice place in Old City
We enjoyed our stay here! Overall, accommodations were comfortable. This is in an old and historic part of town. We could walk to restaurants and convenience stores. Parking was difficult and we needed to park in a lot around the corner. There is an elevator, which was slow but served its purpose. There was plenty of room in the living area. Others should note, the loft is above the bedroom and movement around the loft could be heard in the bedroom due to older creaky floors.
Great condo in historic district. Close to sites and great restaurants. Parked our car in a nearby garage and never used it, walked everywhere. Well equipped, great that there was a washer and dryer in unit. Condo located on 5th floor but has an elevator which was needed. Josh, the owner, was very pleasant and quickly responded to our inquiries. Would definitely return.
