Thoughtful planning for guests of all ages and capabilities include a four floor elevator and straight access shower, making it ideal for multi-generational families who want to enjoy time together.

Spot bald eagles, and great herons, swim or fish from the deck. Canoe, kayak and bicycles are available to you. Walk, cycle or cross country ski on 60 miles of tow path, a short distance from the home.

Exceeds Expectations! We Are Already Packed for Next Year! My family came from Missouri, Colorado and Virginia to join me at the river house for a long weekend together. I choose the house from the online listing and found the owner to be wonderful to communicate with immediately. Then I arrived at the home and I could not believe my eyes!!! The pictures and description in the listing truly understate the beauty of this house and its surroundings. This is a dream home that will exceed your every expectation! Each adjective used in the previous reviews……fantastic, amazing, upscale, great, beautiful…….. is right on target. The outdoor spaces were incredible. We used the canoes and kayaks on the river. We rode the bikes on the trails around the river. We sat out on all the decks throughout the days and evenings, barbecued hot dogs and chicken on the gas grill for lunch, played soccer in the yard with the kids and had an evening of making s’mores and telling stories around a fire in the outdoor pit. We visited the coffee fair, the country store and then hit a few antique shoppes. The indoor spaces were glorious. The kitchen was to die for…….and who minds doing the prep with a fire going, listening to the stereo while looking out onto the river? We could all sit together around the long dining table enjoying our food, the fire, the view and the company. The bedrooms and baths were five star hotel comfort, design and privacy. And then there was the loft: a little special secret hideaway with a game room for the kids, a quiet hideaway for mom, and a beautiful bird’s eye view of river!! Our only regret was having to leave so soon! Thank you, Joan for sharing this gem with us. We are making plans now for our return.

Great Home for large family gathering
Great Home for large family gathering
We spent a weekend here in November as it was my wife's birthday and she had wanted her children, spouses, and grandchildren to be near. We are native to Pennsylvania and familiar with Bucks County. Being on the historic Delaware River we found the views and surroundings to be peaceful and comforting. The lovely home was more than is represented on the website. It is tastefully decorated and offered a great amount of space to be together as well as individual privacy. The floor plans offered a large kitchen/dinning area, a connected living room with see though fireplace, individual sleeping quarters for a family of 8 with two grandchildren, a large deck, and a ground floor fit for outdoor entertaining. Perfect for summer and early fall dinning. You must visit the historic town known as Frenchtown just over the bridge in New Jersey. We took the whole crowd there for lunch and dined at the Frenchtown Inn. Following lunch we had the group scavenger hunt through the town collecting items and discovering the local shops with the help of friendly residents. Finally, you will enjoy the elevator as it serves all floors and was quite useful in hauling all the items required of a growing family. Looking forward to returning in the summer.

I was completely impressed with this home and vacation rental experience. Of first note, the details and furnishings were more lovely and upscale than I expected~ much more like a real home, but impeccably clean!! : ) Access to the river is easy and delightful, with a kayak and canoes to enjoy; and the view is gorgeous. This would be a fantastic place to have a large group; ample space, plenty of bathrooms, excellent options for both privacy and socializing, and a big, fairly well-stocked kitchen. The owner was incredibly responsive on all fronts, from returning my initial inquiry to answering my questions about local farmer's markets to calling me the following weekend to follow up on our plans (we wanted to come back!). Kudos to the owners of this lovely property~~ you're doing a great job!

I work in the hospitality / lodging business and have been called "picky" in the past. With that in mind, if you are contemplating renting a home for up to 10 people in the Bucks County area, don't waste your time with other home options. Pick this one! We had family gathering from all over the mid-Atlantic, so this was a perfect location and amazing home. 1) Joan's description and pictures *understate* the quality of her home. Every detail from the home fixtures, amenities and furnishings are well thought out. The elevator is very convenient and makes moving in/out a fast and efficient process. Joan's tastes are similar to my wife's and mine (we actually have some similar decor in our own home), so we really did feel right at home. If waking up to a phenomenal river view is appealing, you won't be disappointed. 2) The property was impeccably clean and well stocked with supplies. 3) Joan's help in guiding us to the area and home was very helpful. She was only a phone call or email away to answer a question or two that came up, and like any good host, she checked on us to make sure everything was ok. 4) For a vacation home in the mid-Atlantic, this would be my first choice and recommendation to friends. My relatives all commented how much they wanted to return. 5) While our stay was too brief (we didn't want to leave), we enjoyed canoeing right from the back yard which has a wonderful river viewing deck, bike rides on the canal path and visits to Sesame place for the kids. We planned on eating out a few times but ended up enjoying the home, kitchen and grill too much to leave at meal time. Joan left dining candles and having dinner on the deck was a fabulous experience. Now, there's nothing in the world that's absolutely perfect, so I would rate this a 4.99/5.00 with my only minor nit being that sound travels from the loft to the master bedroom. But we had kids up there and this would be the case in any place. In summary, if you stay at this home, you will want to rave about it to others... or you may selfishly want to keep this a secret for yourself so you can return often.

I am a Bucks County native, and travelled back to PA for my baby shower. Because I moved to Minneapolis several years ago & my inlaws are from Houston, a lot of people were traveling in for the event. Instead of requesting that people get hotel rooms, I decided to rent this home so my family and friends could stay under one roof. Because of the spacious location, we were able to maximize our time together... while getting a luxurious B&B feel. This home certainly exceeded our expectations - with its amazing views, beautifully decorated interior, and spectacular kitchen... We certainly had everything we needed for our long weekend. My mother-in-law was impressed with the view & my mother LOVED the walk in shower (she still talks about it to this day). I was a HUGE fan of the master, oversized soaking tub - which was a welcome reprieve for my pregnant & swelling bones at the end of each day.

Wonderful multi-generational stay
Wonderful multi-generational stay
We know how lovely Joan's properties are, so we were not surprised to find her new property is just as spectacular. The real treat was that our 94-year old mother, who is wheelchair bound, could visit nearly every part of this house due to the elevator and ramps. This was her first trip away from home for over two years, and a real treat for all of us. We cooked every meal at home - we couldn't stand to leave the lovely kitchen. We'll be back.

We are frequent users of vrbo and will stay at one of their properties 3-4 times a year. This was one of our favorite places of all time! First of all, Joan is wonderful to work with. When we arrived at this property. we were blown away by each room and all the details that went into it. We loved waking up each morning to the beautiful river and the wonderful nature. It was a fabulous gathering place for our family that is spread around the world. Thank you, Joan for all the thoughtful attention you put into this home. We were privileged to be here.

What a place ! ! !....We had sizzling weather during our stay (110F) and the a/c in this beautiful home away from home was very welcomed. PERFECT GETAWAY ! Amazing dining area with its most wonderful kitchen island, (we were 8 adults....and never felt crowed anywhere even at meal times) we greatly appreciated the 4 spacious inviting bedrooms especially with their individual bathroom facilities. Splendid view ! And the guys went nuts over the garage...we parked our 5 motorcycles and had room for 5 more) . Listed description and photos are accurate, this luxury property is very clean and well maintained. It was our 3rd rental, as a group, and this place was TOP NOTCH... This rental will be very hard to match...Thank you Joan. The owner is very helpful and will answer all your questions. We highly recommend this rental and can't wait to go back...

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!
First of all, thank you Joan for allowing us to be one of the first people to experience this amazing house! without knowing how the house even looks like because the house is brand new and it isn't even listed on homeaway, Joan walked me thru with everything and promised that i won't be disappointed, and i certainly didn't and was blown away how beautiful the house is and equipped with everything you can possibly think of and more. House is in great location and right by Delware river where we kayaked along the river and stopped by the house for a quick rest. Thanks for the wonderful time and looking forward to be back for a longer stay! i highly recommend this house for any occasion or holidays!!

My family had the great pleasure of staying in this house for a long week-end. Everything about this place was perfect, there was no detail left out. If you needed something, it was there!! Joan, the owner has thought of everything!! We had 4 kids who loved hanging out in the loft, playing hide and seek in the house, and swimming and boating on the peaceful Delaware River. Access to the nearby store across the bridge in Milford was so handy too. We will definitely be coming back here.
