Welcome to the James Matthews Guest House
Your Inn Keepers
Wally and Susan Moyer
We love Philadelphia and want to share this love with you. Susan was born and raised in Philly and Wally has been here for over 30 years. We know this city and enjoy seeing it by bike and/or motorcycle.
Susan is fluent in ASL and works as an American Sign Language Interpreter as her second career. Her first career was in Community and Regional Planning. She has done the decorating of the James Matthews House to make the guests feel at home. Susan loves history and has fallen in love with the James Matthews House and the history of the house. She spent months restoring a few of the original windows that we could save.
Wally has always had the dream to be Bob Newhart from the Newhart show with the Bed and Breakfast in Vermont. He never wanted to live in Vermont, but has now found a way to live his dream with a bed and breakfast in the city he loves, Philadelphia. He has been a tax accountant for over 25 years and continues this work on a lesser scale during tax season. His office and his home have been in Germantown for over 30 years. Wally was able to save over 90% of all the original floors in the house by personally sanding and restoring them.
The James Matthews house for both of them has been a labor of love. In 2015 we completed the restoration of the James Matthews Guest House and now are ready to share it with you.
We would also love to see your city, near or far. Every year we have an adventure or two or three on our calendar.
