Bucks County Cottage on the Delaware

Romantic Getaway Cottage
Fireplace and River Views

Antiquing and Fine Dining Nearby

Your very own Colonial Williamsburg-style cottage, with a wood-burning fireplace in a park-like setting on the Delaware River, 13 miles south of New Hope and Lambertville and 5-10 minutes from trains to Philadelphia and New York City.

Furnished with 18th-century reproduction furniture and Oriental rugs, the cottage is perfect for week-long vacations, weekend getaways, writer's retreats, house-hunting visits, or temporary lodging for relocated execs. It's ideal for a couple, but it also works for a family of four, or three close friends who don't mind sharing a bathroom.

The bedroom has a four-poster queen-size bed with crocheted canopy, matelasse spread, and 600 thread-count sheets. The 'tavern room' off the kitchen provides extra sleeping space, with a twin bed and pop-up trundle, and a place to use your laptop. The sunny eat-in kitchen, though not designed for elaborate gourmet cooking, has everything you'll need to prepare simple meals.

There really is no place like our Bucks County Cottage on the Delaware, and we love sharing it with like-minded souls. Come visit us soon!

If you need help planning your visit to Bucks County, spend some time exploring the Bucks County Visitors Bureau and Bucks County Alive Web sites. Another great source of "insider advice" on memorable restaurants and things to do in Bucks County is Jim Flynn's Best Weekends

Happy Travels,

Guest Comment
"Quite awesome. Emily was absolutely wonderful and accommodating. In addition to the wealth of information provided in the guides waiting for you, Emily is very knowledgeable and willing to make recommendations based on what you are looking for. The cottage was immaculate and packed with everything we needed to start our three day stay, including a set table, milk, juice and tasty snacks in the kitchen. There are also pans and nifty stove to make your own meals. This location is perfect for those who live in the New Jersey and New York area, because it's not too far out of the way (took me about 50 minutes from north NJ) but far enough from the madness of city life. Sweet silence at night and lots of candles make you feel like it's just you and your partner in your own private wonderland. We mostly spent our time in the cottage and in the New Hope and Lambertville areas. I recommend New Hope for walks, shopping and spots like Post Mortem Gallery and Nightbird Vintage shopping were exceptionally cool. Restaurants to try: Cafe Antonio (Italian), Havana (Caribbean), and Phillips Inn (romantic, American cuisine). If you are looking for an inexpensive, romantic and quiet vacation with a significant other, I highly recommend a stay at this cottage."
