HI - Philadelphia - Chamounix Mansion
In the heart of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, historic Chamounix Mansion has welcomed overnight guests and groups for forty years. Originally built in 1802 as a country home, the mansion rests on a scenic bluff above the Schulykill River, and is convenient to Philadelphia's cultural and historic attractions, sporting events and restaurants. We provide clean, inexpensive accommodations for individuals, families and groups. The handicapped-accessible Carriage House is an ideal facility for group accommodation. The hostel also offers free breakfast, Internet access, laundry facilities and meeting rooms with kitchen/dining areas for workshops, retreats, and events. Chamounix (CHAM'-ah-nee) Mansion is a peaceful country setting away from the bustle and noise of the city welcoming guests from across the USA and around the world providing accommodation in a beautiful site for the best price. Mountainside and a forest make it a perfect starting point for hiking lovers.
