Recent Philadelphia & Its Countryside reviews

  • Perfect PA setting

    "What a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere at this unique country home. We loved the fire pit and the front porch. Our only surprise was that one set of guests had to walk through another guest's bedroom to go to the bathroom. I wish this had been mentioned in the description. The house is wonderfully stocked and decorated. Enjoy!"

  • 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."

  • Perfection!

    "The photos do not do this lodge justice--even nicer in person. Immaculate, nicely decorated, quaint & cozy! The owner was very responsive to our emails. Be warned--the gas fireplace is a nap-inducing machine!! You will not be able to keep your eyes open! We had a wonderful time--and if you're a nature & history buff, this is the place! We visited Eckley Miners' Village, the Knox Mining Disaster site & memorial and "Concrete City" (if you're an "abandoned places" enthusiasts--C.C. is for you--it's on Google Maps near Nanticoke). Hiked in Worlds End State Park (having lunch at Forksville General Store & Restaurant is a MUST!) and Ricketts Glen and some times we just hung out at the cabin relaxing and in the evenings, we enjoyed the extensive collection of DVDs. if you want to travel to Scranton there is a Houdini Museum (they keep weird hours, so check their website), the Everhart Museum, Nay Aug Park & the old iron furnaces. Also--I've never rented a house that supplied the toilet paper, paper towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. So NICE to not have to take up space and lug those items back & forth on vacation. BOOK THIS PLACE NOW!! It's AMAZING!"

  • 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."
