Mediterranean Villa in PA

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. There is a serene, old fashioned quality to the house and grounds that feels straight out of a novel. We enjoyed the pool, the lightening bugs at dusk, the comfortable outdoor seating for eating and visiting, and cooking in the ample, charming kitchen. Although it is situated on a crossroads you are worlds away while inside the grounds. Once you leave you're close to stores, restaurants and highways towards Philadelphia or other historic attractions. We'd love to return for another visit.

Lovely home- perfect for extended family get-together

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at the Roosevelt estate and Stephen, the owner, couldn't have been more accommodating or hospitable. We were thrilled to be able to fit under one roof as we were visiting the area and nearby Princeton (50 minutes) in honor of my father who recently passed. The kids loved playing hide and seek in all the rooms and splashing around in the swimming pool. In the evenings, we cooked dinner in the large kitchen and played cards and games. The house is clean and very private, surrounded by wonderful large trees and gardens. It is also perfectly located - with access to New Jersey and Philadelphia. Sesame Place (for kids) is also a short 35 minute ride away and made for a fun way to spend a sunny afternoon. Highly recommend for those looking to spend quality time as a family.

Serene Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 12 coming from 3 states for our reunion and to visit colleges. Once past the gate there lies a Tuscan retreat wherein we could have been blissfully content all week. This Roosevelt House is like a museum (if the walls could talk) and the grounds are a botanical feast. Even with the treasures inside and out we felt completely comfortable, welcomed in many ways. Upon entering the home we were greeted with wine, Prosecco, Perrier and bright blooms throughout. Items provided included coffee/tea, spices, sponges, soap, ice, plenty of TP…AC and ceiling fans work well; furniture is cozy/family friendly. My favorites are the grand tables inside and out where we dined, chatted, gamed, and puzzled. Weather was ideal for the inviting pool (never smelled chlorine) and grill. The outside space is truly an entertainer’s dream with a sprawling decked out terrace. It is the kind of property where everyone can claim personal space. There are gates around and a large grassy area so Cleo, our terrier, could sniff to her heart’s content. Everything is close-by; we visited beautiful college campuses, Philly Museum of Art, Fort Washington State Park and strolled across the street to a very welcoming church with the historic Union Cemetery. Encouraged by the gardens and the park lining the property we heard birds singing all day. The night sparkled with fireflies. Last but not least the owners Stephen and Stefania have an ease and kindness about themselves: they made sure we were happy. Ursula, my 86 year old mother said it best; “There is an organic serenity to this sanctuary.”

Amazing beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this property this pass memorial weekend for my birthday with family and friends. Wow I had a great weekend in this house. Our stay was fabulous. The property was exactly what I wanted. Couldn’t have ask for any better! The pool n grill was perfect the property was stocked with everything imaginable and well furnished. We have stayed in lots of properties and by far this is the best value. We have already talked about renting this property before the summer ends. As per the owner Stephen very quick to response and makes everything so easy. Thank you so much Stephen for a wonderful experience!

Beautiful Charming Estate

  • 5 of 5

This charming home was the perfect place for our extended family to celebrate graduation. It was so spacious and the accommodations were all terrific. The back patio with its beautiful landscaping was the perfect spot to relax. Truly felt like a home away from home. Would surely stay here again!

Unique property perfect for big families or family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This house was so unique. Whenever you walked into a room, you felt like you were transported to a new dimension. I would say to myself, “how did I get here and where am I?” The gourmet kitchen was fantabulous! My family loves to cook and the 5 of us could be in there comfortably cooking. The stove was over the top. Lots of places to sit and relax. We had the fire going several nights in the dining room and in the living room. There was one room with a television. Several of the doors took great effort to shut. I had family meet from NY and CA. We were in for a graduation. It took 30 min to get to the college. We all looked forward to getting back to the house. We enjoyed the house very much.
