The Thomas Bond House was one of the least expensive B&B we could find in the historic part of Philadelphia. Despite being just beside a multi-storey parking lot, the Thomas Bond House is a beautiful building in a prime location. We stayed in the "Hetty Cox Markoe Room" (each room has a name), which had a view over Welcome Park, a charming-if-modern tribute to city founder William Penn. This was the cheapest room in the building, but was more than enough for us, with its fully-equipped bathroom, cable TV and air conditioning.
We were able to sample our host's cooking talents, as he cooked a different hearty breakfast each of the two mornings we stayed there. We don't have large appetites and were never able to finish our plates, but I guess it is much better to have too much than not enough.
Unique Quality: Every evening at 6 p.m., there is a complementary wine and cheese tasting with the owners. For those with a sweet tooth, there are also complementary home-made chocolate chip cookies served after 8:30 p.m.
Directions: Between Chestnut and Walnut Streets.
Thomas Bond House
A quaint bed and breakfast in an old colonial house in the historic heart of Old City (2nd near Walnut, near Welcome Park).
I've never stayed here, but my sister says the rooms are beautiful and everyone she knows who has stayed here was impressed.
