Home is owned by local artist who renovated this 1866 farm house while keeping the historic charm. Her love for the New Hope area is seen throughout the home. She decorated the home to be warm and inviting inside and out!
Diana purchased this House in 2004

BEST LOCATION FOR OUR SISTER WEEKEND THAT WE COULD HAVE HOPED FOR
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
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.
My friends and I had a fabulous girl's weekend. The house was lovely and Diana is so sweet and friendly. Couldn't ask for a better host or home. Can't wait to come back.
Amazing Girl's Weekend
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!
BEWARE STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!
For my best friends Bacholorette weekend we decided to rent a house for 2 nights in the New Hope area. This one looked super quaint and a perfect place for us to stay. Originally there were 7 people staying. A few weeks before the weekend we called in a panic that so many girls had dropped out to stay. There were now 4 girls staying and we decided to do one less night. We called the owner and she agreed no problem. When we arrived there yesterday awaiting our wine tour bus she comes out in a panic. Saying it was only 4 girls staying that's it. It was only 4 girls staying the other girls had designated drivers and would be leaving after dinner that night. She kept mentioning she was losing money. It was still ok and we went on our tour. 20 minutes later she texts the coordinator of this weekend and says to her we can no longer stay there. This was supposed to be a nice calm night being that were in our late 20's early 30's she discriminated against us. She thought it would be wild. We were transparent the entire time about who we were and gave her ample opportunity to refuse for us to stay there. She waited until last minute and knew that we would be in a pinch to find other accommodations. Fortunately she did give us back our deposit. She is a complete flake stay away from this place. She handled everything so poorly. If you want a seamless stay in New hope beware of this awful property owner.
When I receive bookings first question I ask is amount of people and reason for stay....I was told under 7 and a girls weekend!!!! Not bachelorette party! Three weeks before arrival I was asked if I could let them stay only Saturday night not Friday because only 4 girls can come. I said ok and I was also told 2 cars would be here.
I contacted the coordinator a week before and confirmed only 4 girls are coming with 2 cars and check in is after 1 pm on Saturday. She
then told me they were taking a wine tour and could not get key until around 5 pm Saturday. I expected to see the 4 girls around 5Pm Saturday but as I was leaving the house at 10 am Saturday there was 4 cars parked on my property and 1 of the cars was parked in my neighbors grass which I had them move it. I did not give permission for any cars to be parked at this house until after 1 pm and only 2 cars not 4!! There were 7 or more girls standing by cars waiting for the wine tasting bus to pick them up.
I spoke to the coordinator before bus came and she said after they return around 5pm all the girls were coming into house and then they were going into town and later that night only 4 girls are sleeping over. I told her the agreement was for only 4 on property after 1pm with 2 cars..They left on wine tour and I called a local Hotel in New Hope to check on available rooms which they had ....I did not feel comfortable at this point and immediately I told her the phone number to Hotel as well as Taxi number and that they could not use this house. She broke the contract agreement.... I told her she could leave cars all day on property and when they returned which was 545PM I would return 100% of her money which I did.
Honesty is so important and she had several opportunities before this group of girls arrived to talk to me and better explain what was going on. She handled this trip poorly and loosing money or their age was never the issue.........Thank you
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!
