On advice from Airbnb, we must list our Bed & Breakfast as an "entire home/apt" as it is the only way to advertise that there is more than one bedroom available, for larger guest party needs. WE do live in the space, but give you YOUR space as well :) It is a HUGE house w/ spacious bedrooms!
The initial rate is for TWO guests/ONE bedroom. Philly Bed and Bagel has TWO additional bedrooms available for up to FOUR more guests. (2 in each bedroom) Sorry, we are not set up for children and we do not rent to "under 25" parties.
When booking more than one bedroom, ENTER THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF GUESTS, in your message, tell us THE NUMBER OF ROOMS needed, and then ask for a "Special Offer." We do NOT rent out to more than one guest party at a time, regardless of guest/bedroom count, however, during Peak events (ex. Graduation/Army Navy game, etc.) all 3 bedrooms must be booked by your party and is priced accordingly, ask for a "Special Offer" if quote seems confusing(URL HIDDEN)

We are Debi and Steve Richter, we live in Philadelphia, and own the newly renovated, Ventnor Happy Ours Cottage in Ventnor, NJ, as well as the newly updated Hoopers Island Bayside Haven, in Fishing Creek (Hoopers Island), MD. In 2016, we also added our home, "Philly Bed and Bagel" to our vacation listings. We love to travel and meet those people who share that passion.
We have always wanted to have a hospitality based business as I am a retired bridal /special occasion floral designer and coordinator. We love meeting new and old friends and hosting them in our home in Philly, and truly enjoy meeting our Guests from our Vacation Rentals as well.
We try to be as eco friendly as possible, and constantly think of ways to incorporate this in the Cottage and the Haven and have solar energy in Philly. Cleanliness and comfort are extremely important to us when we travel, and we make sure our properties are up to our strict standards in every way. The decor of the Cottage is Shabby Chic Vintage coupled with modern efficiency. We fell in love with the furnishings and style of the Cottage when we purchased it and renovated it to be true to its history.
The Haven is decorated simply but with warm color combinations and natural elements. We had a great 2013 Grand Opening Season at the Cottage, hosting wonderful and considerate guests. We look forward to a fabulous future with our new Airbnb membership as we add our Chesapeake Bay, Hoopers Island Bayside Haven and our newest Philly Bed and Bagel locations, as we incorporate suggestions and ideas that will make your stay even more comfortable. As our membership on Airbnb is new, we look forward to YOU being some of our first reviewers!
Both locations are true labors of love and we hope to welcome you to Ventnor Happy Ours Cottage or Hoopers Island Bayside Haven in the near future, as well as the NEW Philly Bed and Bagel!
Hoopers Island Bayside Haven has 360 Degree views of both the Chesapeake Bay and the Honga River. Both waterfront and waterback, the Haven is the perfect location for a total "getaway" from it all.
Ventnor Happy Ours Cottage is 200 steps from the beach, with a wonderful fully furnished porch to people watch from, and enjoy the breeze from the outdoor ceiling fans. Minutes from AC and Ocean City, while being on a very family friendly block close to everything!
Our spacious Philly Bed and Bagel is in the Pennsport neighborhood (recently named, Philly's Best Neighborhood" by Curbed.) We offer up to THREE bedrooms, for up to SIX guests. Conveniently located to all major attractions, tourism, restaurants, etc. With separate Guest Quarters to relax in, cook a meal or watch TV as well as two Guest Only Bathrooms.
