Recent Philadelphia & Its Countryside property reviews

  • Back in Time

    "Our family of 7 adults spent 3 nights at Plumb Nilly in February so we weren't able to take advantage of the pool, but a few of us did use the lighted tennis courts the first evening. Then the weather turned cold. But that made us appreciate the fireplace in one of the sitting rooms even more. We gathered there after supper each night to enjoy the cozy space. Everyone said their beds were comfortable. I can especially vouch for the Master Bedroom Bed--the most comfortable I've ever had away from home. We found everything we needed to cook supper one night--finding the fish poaching pan had my son buying a whole fish at Reading Market and preparing it for us. Every morning I headed for the kitchen to make coffee and sit in the quaint dining room gazing out the window just absorbing all the history that must have taken place in this lovely home. Plumb Nilly is only 30 minutes from downtown Philly, so we went into town both days to enjoy Reading Market and The City Tavern along with several of the museums."

  • Easter Vacation Dream

    "We spent a 4-day Easter vacation at Bucks County Cottage with our two small children and had a fantastic time! Emily was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about events and things to do. We found the cottage to be the perfect get-away from the city. Truly a home away from home. Looking out on the Delaware we discussed George Washington's crossing with our kids, had an Easter-egg hunt in the sprawling yard and enjoyed evenings by the fire in the living room. All around, the cottage exceeded our expectations and we will definitely come again!"

    "We have stayed at about a dozen or so VRBO homes. This would have to ranked in the top two.The property was the cleanest we have encountered. We stayed a week and hated to leave!It is an easy day trip to Baltimore ( we saw the aquarium), Dover De ( we saw the nascar race and the casino), and to Philadelphia. We planned on seeing all the US Constitution related sites in Philly but the US Govt was shut down.It is a great central location.The property is in a country setting, very quiet and comfortable.It would also be a great place to take an armload of books and just settle for a while.Amish country is just over the hill and thats where we bought our fresh veggies,fruit and baked goods.You will be happy if this is your choice."

  • Exquisite, Ideally located, Elegant Estate

    "What a gorgeous, magical spot! Our family of six stayed for my daughters wedding week.The beautifully restored house was roomy enough for all with plenty of private nooks and restful space for privacy; the kitchen was a delight- a 6 burner, 2-oven Thermidor gas stove, marble counter, farmhouse sink, plenty of room for storage and fully equipped. Fully modernized, but it is an opportunity to stay in an incredible historic place. My husband barbequed most nights on the sizeable gas grill and we ate alfresco on the new slate patio. We also held a dinner in the stunning dining room. The wireless worked great too, for those who have to work. The location couldnt be beat. Longwood is tucked well back and gated for security, yet only .6 mile from route 202, one mile from the bustle of New Hope (great resutarants) and luckily, less than 2 miles from Holly Hedge Estate B&B where my daughters wedding was held.. The grounds are amazing. The yard was manicured and lush, with cushioned lawn furniture and recliners spread about the rear garden and pool. We could group for afternoon drinks, or spread out for quiet time while sun bathing. Two huge rear decks, one off the center living room, and an upper floor one off the incredible master, where my husband and I found time for coffee alone. Kip the onsite caretaker was there to welcome us & answer questions and built a wonderful bonfire in the clearing for us one cool summer night- Smores in the woods! The owner too was very helpful & responsive via email. My kids agreed that our time at Longwood was so memorable, and such a wonderful complement to the wedding. We hated to leave."
