Doylestown farmhouse description
Our family lives in Brooklyn (DUMBO) and we use this house for family escapes. It takes us under two hours door to door. We mostly rent to other family's from NYC, often rendezvousing with friends from Philadelphia or DC. We've also hosted many women's get aways and a few corporate off-site events.
Located in beautiful Bucks County is a 1743 stone house with 4 bedrooms and converted barn with chef's kitchen and queen bed. Heated pool, outdoor shower, formal gardens, two wood fireplaces. Set on 5.5 park-like acres, the property is a 5 minute walk to Lake Galena/Peace Valley Park and a 5 minute drive to the Doylestown.
When not outside enjoying the beautiful surroundings, you'll be spending your days in the converted barn cooking, drinking, eating and laughing. The stone farmhouse is mostly for sleeping, or if the kids need nap time. If you have elderly folks, the barn is easy in / easy out (no stairs) with a queen bed and walk-in shower.
Within a 20 minute drive you can enjoy a half dozen quaint Delaware River towns, including Frenchtown, Pt Pleasant, Lumberville, Stockton, New Hope, Lambertville.
Unfortunately we do NOT rent our home for WEDDINGS or any other events of any size. There is a maximum of 8 guests, including children, at the home. No other guests or friends of the renters are allowed at the property at anytime. We do not rent for one night. Summer is rented for the entire season ($40,000)

Eight 40 year olds for Girls' Weekend
Eight 40 year olds for Girls' Weekend
We had such a great time at this farmhouse for our annual girls weekend trip! The layout was perfect, the farmhouse was lovely with enough room for each of us to have a bed, but we spent most of our time in the converted barn - big open space, plenty of furniture to lounge in, beautiful kitchen with all the amenities, and a fireplace! We ate breakfast outdoors on the patio, and would have jumped in the pool if it had been warmer! Walked around the grounds & walked to the lake. We were close enough to spend a day in Philly - and the contrast of a farmhouse and the city were incredible. Doylestown itself is a perfect town for a getaway - plenty of restaurants and entertainment. Thanks for a great Pennsylavania experience!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay... the converted barn and stone house were beautiful as were the grounds. Proximity to Doylestown and river towns (New Hope, Lambertville, etc.) was really convenient. Loved Lake Galena. Pool and outdoor grill were great. We would definitely go back! The owner, James, was very thoughtful and helpful.
