Penthouse in Historic District Close to Convention
Welcome to the Chestnut Lofts, A boutique condominium building centrally located 3 blocks from the Liberty Bell, Independence hall and 1 block from Penns Landing and the waterfront. Step out your door to dine at cafes and restaurants or explore Old City in a horse drawn carriage. If visiting for a trade show, we are just a short walk to the convention center as well.

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 bit of low ceiling around 6 feet)
There are pluses and minuses to each of our properties and we want to make sure you select the one that you and your family will enjoy the most
Please see short summaries below with the pros and cons of each of our properties below.
The Chestnut Lofts (faces rear of building)
The Chestnut Lofts is located at 2nd and Chestnut in Old City. We are in a boutique condominium building centrally located 3 blocks from the Liberty Bell, Independence hall and 1 block from Penns Landing and the waterfront. If your looking to come for the historic sites this is really a prime location but be just be aware it's also 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 oreiented 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).

The Chestnut Lofts (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.
(Panama St )Cozy Home in Historic Washington Square
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 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 really is very hard to beat. Drawback wise these places are small and they have very challenging stairs. Please see link for full listing. https://www.flipkey.com/philadelphia-vacation-rentals/p425515/
(Panama St) Townhouse in Washington Square
Please see above summary. Please see link for full listing
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 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.

My family and I enjoyed our stay in Philadelphia over the President's Day weekend. The condo was ideally situated within walking distance of restaurants and the historic sights and was very comfortable for a family of four and provided every amenity that was needed. The children loved having their own separate area (and so did we).
Josh provided great customer service and even took the time to mail our daughter's blanket to us after it was accidently left behind. Thanks Josh!

This condo is in a great location. We had two couples here. The loft has two small beds and a low ceiling, and it is better used by a family with children than adults. The walls are pretty thin and not much privacy. The living room was large and comfortable. Great having a washer/dryer.
