Hostelling International - Chamounix Mansion
In the heart of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, historic Chamounix Mansion has welcomed overnight guests and groups for nearly fifty years. Originally built in 1802 as a country home, the mansion rests on a scenic bluff above the Schuylkill River and is convenient to Philadelphia's cultural and historic attractions, sporting events, and restaurants.
Chamounix (CHAM'-ah-nee) Mansion provides clean, inexpensive accommodations for:
- Individual Travelers: meet like-minded friends from all over the world! Our front porch is the place to make new friends. We even have a wedding story from two people (one American, one French) who met at Chamounix and eventually married!
-Families: (the only hostel in Philly with a crib and family-friendly atmosphere; kids under the age of 16 are WELCOME with parent or guardian, and have a super low rate of $8! WE NEVER PUT YOUR KIDS WITH OTHER GUESTS!
-Groups: For group gatherings, we also offer meeting rooms with kitchen/dining areas for workshops, retreats, and events. Think of Chamounix when planning alternative Spring Break, corporate retreats, The Dad Vail Regatta, anniversary parties, alumni gatherings, and weddings.
Nestled in a wooded setting, the hostel offers a welcoming front porch and two communal rooms restored to 1850 and furnished Federal Period antiques. A marble fireplace graces the 19th-Century parlor and a wonderful mural of the historic Water Works on the Schuylkill River can be found in the entrance hall.
