Another kitchen view.This is the main street in town. The other pictures are different views of the same street. It's about two blocks of main road with more commerce on three side streets running north of it. In all seasons, this little town is bustling! There are two yoga studios, a Pilates studio, a movie house, the police and fire department one block in the other direction, a supermarket, about six restaurants, and two coffee shops, one of them a French patisserie, the other a cheese shop that sells European cheeses and fresh prepared foods, among sundry other treats.

I loved staying at Cassandra's apt! She is so incredibly welcoming and provided great hospitality. Her house is *super* close to the train station and a couple of cafes, dry cleaners, it was perfect. I would highly recommend staying with Cassandra!

Cassandra's place was perfect for us. Best location in downtown Narberth. It was very clean and roomy. She was a great host always concerned if everything was ok and if we needed anything. I would recommend this place. Note: Train station was only one block away which made it eas…

We enjoyed our stay at Cassandra's. A great location with friendly neighbors. Cassandra arranged for a friend to to let us in and "give us the tour" Although Cassandra wasn't here in the beginning of our stay she was very quick to respond to a small issue with the TV. She was…

Fern and Norm, it was a pleasure to meet you both when I returned, and I appreciate your care of my home, as well as your ease and help in dealing with the TV situation. So glad it worked out for you to stay the extra week, and I'm thrilled you experienced Narberth so favorably. Be well!

Cassandra's place is well-locatedin Narberth in the center of town but on a residential street. there are good small food shops, wine store, restaurants, yoga studio, movie theater, etc. It has a cute town ambiance, rather than other mainline towns that are more car-based. My fr…

Maggie, you were marvelous guests, and except for the fact that there was laundry in the hamper (thank you for doing that :)), I wouldn't have known you were here. Please think of my place again if you ever need a place in Narberth, and I hope you'll continue to enjoy yoga retreats near and far!

I had the most wonderful stay at Cassandra's apartment, I truly could not have asked for a better place to stay or for a better host. I had to travel to Pennsylvania for an interview, and I wasn't too sure what to expect because it would be my first time on the East Coast, my fir…

Lauren, thank you so much for making my home yours. It was wonderful to meet you, to be able to show you around Narberth a bit as we walked my pup, or take you into the city on my way to work. You were so quiet when you were home, I hardly knew you were here. You know that if you decide to settle in Philly, you now have a couple of moms (my friend Jill, too)!
