Directions to The Gables

See the links below for directions from specific locations. Our experience suggests that you not use an online map service, as guests have often gotten lost by the directions suggested.

The Gables is a short taxi or shuttle ride from either the Philadelphia International Airport or from the train station at 30th Street.

The #13 trolley of SEPTA's Green Line stops right out front of the house and is just 5 minutes to the University and 12 minutes to Center City and the historic district.

By car it is about five minutes from the University Avenue Exit #346B off The Schuylkill Expressway, Route 76 From the exit, head toward The University of Pennsylvania on 34th Street/University Avenue. Pass under a pedestrian overpass and get in the lanes marked for Baltimore Avenue. You will be making a left hand turn and stay in the left lane marked for Woodland Avenue. Follow Woodland past the cemetery and trolley station, in a few blocks you see Chester Avenue split off to the right. Continue on Chester through Clark Park.

The Gables is at 4520 Chester Avenue, on the left at the end of the first residential block after the park. It can easily be recognized on the corner of 46th by the large wrap-around porch and glowing candles in the window. For convenient off-street parking, turn left onto 46th Street and left into the driveway behind the house. Walk through the side yard to the front entrance via the wrap-around porch to ring the front door bell. There you will be welcomed by the hosts.
