Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + 1.5 baths (sleeps 4)

Enjoy the beauty of Bucks County while sleeping in the oldest home in New Hope. It is a Historic landmark, located on the banks of the Delaware River. Located right in town, so you can walk anywhere in New Hope, or cross the bridge and you're in Lambertville, NJ.

The house has all the charm of the 1700's, but has been updated for your enjoyment. There are fireplaces in both bedrooms, as well as the family room and living room.

The house is a perfect "get away" for a long weekend or vacation lasting weeks. The house works well for four people, but you can put the fifth on the sofa bed in the family room.

Each of the bedrooms have comfortable bed with views to the river. The family room has the "Lazyboy" for those afternoons of just lazying around and enjoying the sounds of the river.

You are a 20 minute ride to Princeton, and New York City is a little over an hour away by train. But remember, you do not have to leave the area. New Hope and Lambertville have numerous antique stores and of course the famous flea markets. There are many charming restaurants that you can walk to and the walking trails are just at the end of the block..

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

We liked the house very much. The cleaning service can do a better job with the vacuuming, particularly around the fireplaces and under the table at the top of the steps. The kitchen is tiny and needs a bigger coffee maker, especially if you have 4 people staying (which we did).

It's really an ideal place for 2 couples, since the bedrooms are on each floor and one has privacy. The staircase is a bit dicey, but that's just the way it is with old houses.

The house is situated in a popular area, with bars and restaurants surrounding it (literally). If you like walking out the front door and having numerous dining and bar options available, it's just perfect. If noise is an issue for you, this house can be a problem. For instance, across the street is a bar called Karla's, and folks were out smoking and talking all night long. We found it very disruptive. (Tip: you can download a noise machine to your mobile phone and that helps, or bring earplugs.)

We had a lot of rain the weekend we were there, so the outdoor noise wasn't as bad as usual. Numerous people told us that in general, the noise is pretty extreme. The bedroom windows are steps from the sidewalk, where people from the bar go out for a smoke.

Make sure you bring supplies, such as coffee and half-and-half before arriving. The grocery story is a drive away, and convenience stores are non-existent. We had to walk to Lambertville to get coffee and half-and-half.

Couldn't have been more pleased!

  • 5 of 5

Such a special place! You can feel the history in this house. Barbara was very responsive. We went to the Bucks County Playhouse right across the street to see a great performance. The location of the house could not be more ideal. Walk out your front door and in 10 steps you arrive at one of many excellent restaurants. Will definitely return!

Excellent location

My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much, the outside Christmas tree and lighting was beautiful. We had a great time at the Bucks County Playhouse and were able to cross the street and be back in warm house on a cold night. Highly recommend

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. You are definitely in the heart of New Hope!!!

Old world charm meets some modern conveniences. If you’ve ever wanted to stay in an 18th century house this 274 year old home will be right up your alley. It has all the amenities of the 21st century, indoor plumbing, kitchen, heat, with all the charm of an old stone home. My family loved our stay and the owners couldn’t have been more helpful and a pleasure to work with. We will definitely consider returning.

Special Charm

  • 5 of 5

New Hope is an absolutely adorable and charming town. Gorgeous surroundings.This Historic house is equally as adorable and charming! It sits right on the main street with a lovely canal running through the back yard along with stunning views of the Delaware river... completed with the peaceful sound of falling water. Located smack in the middle of darling shops, restaurants and small town action!..Yet... Surprisingly the house is very quiet inside, other than the delightful creeks of the beautiful old large plank floors, I suppose due to the wonderful thick stone walls. The house is chock full of lovely antiques and historic memorabilia giving you the feel of going back in time. The house has everything you might need! Tiny kitchen and baths, comfortable beds and seating, wi fi, TVs, charming fireplaces in almost every room. Warm and cozy all around! Right out of a Norman Rockwell painting! Barbra is a fantastic host and available. Clearly sharing her family and nostalgic interests in every property! Thank you for sharing this special property!
