Recent Philadelphia & Its Countryside reviews

  • Great base for exploring Brandywine Valley

    "A bit overdue on the review but we just wanted to reiterate what other reviewers have stated and that we had a wonderful time at this house. It was better than the pictures, very clean, modern, well stocked - fully functional kitchen & paper products provided (they even had produce wash!). The only thing you really need to bring is shampoo & bodywash. There's a 2 car garage and nice deck with lounge and dining furniture. We wish we could have spent more time on the deck but we visited during a heat wave. We did see some horses out in the pasture beyond this property. There are 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs. The main floor has a study/office room that has a pull out sofa which can be used as an enclosed 3rd bedroom and a bathroom. There's a kitchen area and then 2 living areas for relaxing in. The basement contains the washer/dryer. We were there during a heat wave and the AC worked really well - if you're in the 2nd bedroom upstairs you need to shift the bed over a bit since the AC vent is being blocked by one of the twin beds (there are also ceiling fans in both upstairs bedrooms). Great base for exploring the area - we were mainly there to visit Longwood gardens. The house is not far from the major highway so it was very easy to get around yet still felt very serene. Short drive away are Kennett Square (check out Talula's Table / Nomadic pies for take away on days you don't feel like cooking). Groceries/big box stores are within close distance. Enjoyed stocking up on mushrooms to cook at home (mushroom capital of the world!) and wine tasting (overpriced for quality IMO but still fun). Very easy to get in touch with owner's representative via email or by phone (faster response) prior to booking. There are contact numbers and some instructions once you get there and it was always easy to get in touch with them by phone during our stay. Only con would be that they don't use paypal for booking so you will need to mail in a check/money order. Would recommend this property for those planning to visit this area."

  • Perfect spot

    "My wife and I were looking for a nice, quiet spot for our 5th anniversary. This cabin exceeded all of our expectations. We had a fantastic week of hiking in state parks, exploring the area, and also spending plenty of time relaxing by the fireplace. Everything was exactly as pictured - clean and cozy with everything you need. Cindy was great to deal with too. We loved the cabin and have added it to our list of favorite vacation spots."

  • In a word -- perfect!

    "This lovely, impeccably maintained home was perfect for my last minute vacation in New Hope. Rich in history, and perfectly located -- I think we took the car out of the provided parkng spot, twice all week -- this house has magic. Beautiful walking/bike paths (smelling of honeysuckle and teeming with wildlife) along the canal are steps away, or you can wak over the bridge to Lambertville and enjoy the State park paths along the canal and railroad. The best restaurants shopping, and everything you need are just steps away -- Perfect. PS Not sure what the reviewer below meant, but their is nothing offensive at all in the interesting period items that appear throughout the the house."

    "Our 2nd time staying at a VRBO and like the first, this one was magical. Amazing old stone home, plenty of room, very comfortable and welcoming. Brought our dog with us and she had a great fenced in yard to play. We loved our stay and will certainly return again, wonderful experience, thank you Sandra. Debby, Bill & Molly"
