About Jacquie C. Walker

I have owned this property for 30 years and converted the barn for a Bed & Breakfast which I have operated for 13 years. It has been very popular and has enjoyed a good reputation as well run and a unique property for a weekend stays. But now is the time for me to retire from the daily work of a B & B and this outstanding historic barn is being offered for rent as a vacation rental to families and friends.

Jacquie C. Walker purchased this barn in 1984

Why Jacquie C. Walker chose Perkasie

We bought this property because of the historic significance of the barn and being located in the heart of Bucks County, PA. where we could stable our horses and enjoy a country life and take in all the activities of the area.

What makes this barn unique

The setting of this property is beautiful and in addition to the barn it has a very nice stable for our horses and an 1800 stone farmhouse, all on the same property. Staying here gives one the feeling of a true farm with its outbuildings and pastures.

Perfect for a women's weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was everything we imagined it would be. We had a group of 15 women in this house and the space was adequate for all of us. It was cozy and we loved every minute.

Thank you Jacquie!

A week in the country

  • 4 of 5

There were 8 of us @ the lovely barn house property in PA. The location was great to ride the commuter in PHL and enjoy the city. We had plenty of bathroom and bedrooms to meet our needs. Also, we did not need to climb stairs. We took advantage of being able to cook in for our evening meals. We all enjoyed our accomodations and great access to sightseeing.

A step back in time staying in a large converted barn ion an historic farm in an exurban setting

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our large family gathering with ample indoor space and odd but charming outdoor spaces to gather and play games. Five siblings and their spouses each enjoyed nicely decorated en suite bedrooms, a large dining room table for meals, a well equipped kitchen and a giant great room where the family could join for group conversation and games or split up for small group or individual activities. Lacking was a sound system for music and a convenient outdoor decent size grill. The kitchen dishwasher and oven were quirky but adequate. We all in our ten adult party would be happy to return to this property for our annual sibling reunion. The property manager was pleasant and helpful when available. The property is in a beautiful area with many varied activities and attractions for tourists. It also has a swimming pool.

Great property , love the details but need more maintenance

Owner's Response: I have no idea what this guest is referring to when she says "more maintenance". We have the top cleaning service in the area, we have regular maintenance all the time. We strive very hard to make this a great place to stay. However, these guests left the barn very messy, They did not clean up after themselves, which is part of the rental agreement. There was trash all over the bedrooms and crackers,etc. on the floors from the children most likely eating everywhere., They left so much trash in bags in the trash containers that there is no room left for anyone else. Guests on s two night stay are not allowed that many bags. This all required extra cleaning by our staff. This guest also called me at least three times about issues such as internet access. Not once did she mention that there needed to be maintenance done. Usually when guests leave a mess like was left by these guests, they usually try to put blame on our cleaning staff..... Please refer to all the five star ratings from guests who found the property outstanding.....

Beautiful grounds and lovely place to stay for a get away

  • 5 of 5

We just had our family reunion weekend at the property. Staff on site were extremely responsive and helpful. The five rooms and loft areas comfortably accommodated all of us as 3 kids and 11 adults. The pool worked out wonderfully for young kids. Kitchen was fully equipped. Rooms and accomodations were all in very good condition and the decorations and furniture made a wonderful memory. We all had a great time with people coming in from Ohio, PA and NJ. Lots to do in the area for visitors but most of us just enjoyed the house and pool over the weekend. Definitely would stay/book again.

The property is gorgeous and very comfortable for large groups. Jackie can be challenging but fair.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The place wasn't spotless but it was quaint and very warm. Jackie has her rules and isn't shy about telling them to you but she respected our space and wasn't in our face. If you take the time to talk to her, she'll put a smile on your face.

Owner's Response: This was a very nice group of friends and family here for a wedding. It was a pleasure having them.....I am quite surprised at this guest's comment about it not being spotless as we have a professional cleaning service who does an excellent job....they are considered the best in this area...and I personally check everything before guests check in to make sure the cleaning has been well done. This is a awesome converted barn that will take your breath away when you first walk into it. Guests are always so impressed and we want them to enjoy the uniqueness of it. We work hard to make this a great stay and it makes us pleased when guests comment they enjoyed their stay....Jacquie
