BEST LOCATION FOR OUR SISTER WEEKEND THAT WE COULD HAVE HOPED FOR

  • 5 of 5

Mary Jo H pretty well summed up our feelings. If anything it was even better than the photos.Wonderful artistic details were everywhere, from the handmade tiles in the bathroom to the plantings in the private courtyard. Anyone would love this place but I had read quite a few other "sister weekend" rave reviews and find it interesting how attractive it is to women in general. Thoughtfull? Attention to details? I have four sisters, two of whom are art teachers, and we couldn't have had a better time sitting around the sun-drenched table and doing our art projects. Whatever, thanks to Diana for a very special stay!

Lovely New Hope house

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed here for a long wedding weekend (July 2016) and cannot recommend it highly enough. The house is lovely and comfortably appointed - fabulous gourmet kitchen - beautiful, private garden with fountains, very tranquil. Absolutely immaculate. The location is a short drive/walk from New Hope / Lambertville (less than a mile). This was an effortless stay for us, and Diana, our hostess, made us feel very welcome and well cared for. Note that there was a heatwave and the house was completely cool and comfortable. This area is lots of fun for antiquing, dining, exploring history, hiking, biking etc etc., and this house is a welcome place to return to at the end of a full day. Diana left lots of helpful information about the house, local restaurants, grocery stores, and left wine and desserts for us on our arrival. As others have noted, the house is antique and the stairs are steep so small children / those with mobility issues may have difficulties. We did not experience any problems. The kitchen and grille are top of the line and I wish we had more time to use them! Beds and linens are wonderful. We hope to return.

Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights last summer when we travelled from California to go to his class reunion. We had no idea as to what to expect, as we usually stay at hotels, and decided to try a VRBO house. We were beyond pleased when arrived at the property. The house was amazing-spacious, cozy, well decorated, and extremely clean. There was a bottle of wine and an apple pie waiting for us on the kitchen counter. Diana, the host, was friendly and adorable. She gave us wonderful suggestions for restaurants and activities. We did try a few of the restaurants, and were able to walk into town and not have to worry about driving after having a few drinks. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property. If we ever need to be in the area again, I would not hesitate to stay here!

Amazing Girl's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented Diana's house for our fall girl's weekend and it was perfect! Diana is an amazing person and host and we all left feeling like we had made a new friend. Our group has been friends for most of our lives and this beautiful home served as a perfect backdrop for us to take time out of our busy lives and reconnect.

Upon arriving, we immediately set ourselves up in the gorgeous kitchen (straight out of a Nancy Meyers movie) and had wine and appetizers late into the night as we told stories, laughed and truly enjoyed ourselves. The bottles of wine and cookies left for us by Diana were delicious and much appreciated!

The bedrooms are very comfortable and each room in the house is exquisitely decorated. We could not stop talking about the beautiful attention to detail in all of the decorating. Besides the kitchen, we loved sitting on the front porch for coffee and tea in the morning and having a glass of wine in the back courtyard at night.

We all left feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and reconnected. We recommend this lovely home for anyone looking for a perfect getaway and can't wait to return!

Perfect for Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

Five of us met at the house for our annual get-together. There were two bottles of wine and a plate of just-baked chocolate chip cookies waiting for us on the kitchen island. We drank the wine and made ourselves at home in this lovely house with eclectic pieces of art, chandelier in one of the bedrooms, and strung lights outside in the beautiful garden. We had a great time grilling steaks and eating dinner outside our first night. We enjoyed cooking brunch the next day in the fabulous kitchen. Lots of pretty dishware and glasses.

The house is in a pretty neighborhood, walking distance (10-15 minutes) to the center of town.

I highly recommend this property!
