52 Wooddale Ave., 215/242-4327,
Meaning “soul friend” in Celtic, Anam Cara lives up to its name with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Just a short walk from Germantown Avenue in the heart of Chestnut Hill, the cozy bed-and-breakfast is run by Irish-born Teresa Vesey and her husband, Jack Gann, a licensed masseur who offers on-site massage.
here are three attractive rooms, starting at $110 a night, in the main house and two spacious self-catering “extended stay” apartments on a pretty block nearby. Reduced rates are offered for weekly and monthly stays and there is a two-night minimum on weekends.
