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 Bucks County

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.

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

Charming and scenic location, friendly concierge, difficult host.

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful space amid green pastures that abounds with character and charm: a charismatic interior nestled among tall trees and lush gardens. I was delighted with the space and with the concierges who assisted us; however, several encounters with the owner prompt me to warn potential renters. We reserved the spot for my son's wedding. We rented not only the Barn, but also the studio, where we held the welcome party the night before the ceremony. To reserve the studio, the owner referred us to her grandson, Jordan A. Preston. We paid our deposit last August and paid in full in April upon Jordan's request. Some weeks later the owner, Jacquie Walker, contacted me to say that Jordan had run off with the deposit and that she had no paperwork. She had no details of our arrangement and claimed she did not get paid. I sent her the cancelled checks with both her and Jordan's signatures. She wanted us to insure the studio separately--the bride's family had already taken care of that, but it took four more calls with both me and the bride's father to convince her. Although I didn't care for her manner and found her phone etiquette annoying, I could understand her anxiety. I am writing this review because of what happened next. Jacquie connected us with a new concierge, Wendy, who was very pleasant and responsive. There was only one hitch: we planned to arrive at 3 pm to check-in and the party was to start at 4 o'clock. Wendy had a conflict at 3--could we change? I was flying into Newark and driving down to Perkasie and didn't feel like I could commit to an earlier time. We had arrangements to meet my son for lunch in Doylestown and I didn't want to change those plans. Wendy said she would ask Jacquie to get someone else. This communication happened in mid-May. I heard nothing more until Wendy called the day before our event on June 2nd to ask again if I could meet earlier. My son thought he could make it at 2 o'clock. I thought that I had given enough notice and that they should not ask the groom to miss lunch with his mother! I was annoyed and let Wendy know. Jacquie called and started to yell at me. She was so abusive that I hung up. I sent her next call to voicemail (which I have saved) where she told me there will be no event, that my arrangements were with Jordan and that she did not have to honor them. We compromised and everything worked out in the end, but I would not want someone to go through what I did.

Owner's Response: This was the most rude woman we have ever had to deal with on the telephone. She was short and rude with both me and my assistant, Wendy. No one yelled at her and she thought it was OK to hang up when she did not hear what she wanted to hear. We solved everything by going to the bridge's parents who were most helpful. This was an unusual situation regarding an emplyee who was no longer here and we did the best we could do without having much information. Situations can occur in businesses that can not be avoided. This is what happened and we did everything possible to assist this woman. All turned out well and her comments show that she was not appreciative of all the extra effort we had to do to make it so. We strive very hard to make everything nice and a great stay for out guests. Please read all the five star reviews from guests that have stayed with us.

The Best of All Worlds

  • 5 of 5

The farm had everything that was advertised. It was extremely spacious, clean and had a charm unlike any other VRBO rental I've ever stayed in. Jackie and Jordan were both extremely responsive and informative about check in times and directions. We had a total of 16 friends and family and everyone was comfortably accommodated. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and there was enough table space for everyone to eat in the same room. It was a great experience and I look forward to staying there again next year.
