    Delicious breakfasts in a stately dining room. Owners Cathy and Chris so helpful. Forgot to pack my umbrella...they had them on hand. Easy walk to the Swarthmore campus where I was visiting my grandaughter who is a student there. As a single woman I felt...More

    The hosts are gracious and welcoming. The house is old-fashioned, lovely, comfortable and cozy. Their garden is well-tended and attractive. The location is very handy for those visiting Swarthmore College. Breakfast is tasty and nicely presented. The rooms are exactly as shown on their website.

    Response from Chris D, Owner at Purcell Darrell House B&B

    Bob, It was great to welcome you back to our B&B. It's always gratifying when guests return, especially after a lengthy hiatus, and they settle right in. Cathy and I hope to see you again. Chris

    A very nice, quite and homey room with an awesomely large bathroom. A shower w/2 heads and plenty of water pressure. Also a jaccuzi for 2. A breakfast menu that we filled out the night before, complete w/homemade pancakes, eggs just about any way, oatmeal,...More

    It's always gratifying to have a guest take the time to write a review. When you share your home with others, you want them to appreciate it somewhat close to how much you appreciate it yourself.

    Response from Chris D, Owner at Purcell Darrell House B&B

    It was our pleasure to have you with us, especially for a lengthy enough stay that we had an opportunity to get to know you. With your son a freshman, we hope we'll get to see you again and again over the next 3 years.

    Nice clean, cozy, comfortable B&B close to the college and a short train or car ride to downtown Philly. We stayed here because my son was attending a soccer ID camp and it was walking distance to the school

    Thank you for taking the time to write-up a review. I remember you and your son were heading up north to another soccer camp after this one - a busy summer.
