Bucks County Cottage on the Delaware

1-Bedroom Cottage on the Delaware River in Yardley, Pennsylvania (215-499-0394)

"This was our second Christmas holiday at Bucks County Cottage on the Delaware and it was wonderful again this year! Love the Cottage as well as the decorations. It makes you feel at home to walk into the living room and have a fully decorated Christmas tree waiting for you. A home away from home! Accommodating and friendly hosts. Convenient and beautiful location. We will definitely return!" - Betsy R., Vero Beach, FL, 12/26/2023

"My husband and I had a wonderful low-key vacation here at this fabulous cottage. It was central to many things. It was cozy and well equipped with convenient parking. The home had modern conveniences mixed with a historical decor that gave the cottage a special vibe. The owners provided a wealth of information about the area, which was really helpful. They also provided access to their herb garden, which allowed me to cook some very tasty food that we bought from the local Amish market. Overall the area is beautiful and scenic and I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to unwind and relax in a beautiful space near the Delaware River." - Diane B., Keansburg, NJ, 08/20/2023

"Exceeded all expectations! This is a beautiful and meticulously-maintained cottage in a lush, parklike setting. We were welcomed warmly and provided with lots of information about local activities and attractions. I hope to return for another stay." - Juliana S., Berkeley, CA, 06/30/2023

"This is your home away from home! I cannot say enough about this lovely cottage. Emily, the hostess, was kind and gracious. We arrived to fresh cut flowers and a welcoming basket of snacks. The location was an ideal distance away from the crowds for a Princeton graduation. It is about a 20-minute drive to campus and you do not have to navigate Rt 1 from here. The hosts even adorned the cottage with a Princeton flag! The cottage was spotless and fully appointed. If you bring groceries, you have a full kitchen, with milk, orange juice, and coffee provided. All linens were also provided, along with soap. The bookshelf had something for everyone plus a few games. The town of Yardley was a minute away with plenty of restaurants and a Wawa convenience store. The river is directly in front of the cottage, across the road. You will feel more than comfortable during your relaxing stay, from the fairy lights in the beautiful tall tree outside your door to the warmth of the cozy cottage's interior." - Jen H., Brunswick, MD, 05/29/2023

"Winter Writer's Retreat: This was the perfect place to rest and write. The cottage is beautiful. The wood-burning fireplace provided a picturesque atmosphere for evenings and cold days. The canal towpath, located a very short drive away, was a great place to walk, stretch your legs, and be out in nature. And with shops and stores in nearby towns, the location is great! Emily and Alfred were wonderful and attentive hosts, and their personal touches made this a great stay." - Frank P., Bryn Mawr, PA, 02/08/2023

"We stayed at this perfect cozy cottage over the Christmas holiday and and it felt like home. Emily had put up a Christmas tree and with the fire crackling it was very festive. Thank you for the best Christmas we have had since we retired to SC." - Sherry H., Bluffton, SC, 12/29/2022

"The cottage is extraordinary! It is a work of art! Every detail has been carefully thoughtful about. It is truly a sight to see and experience! " - Jay S., Rochester, NY, 09/19/2022

"Relax and Reconnect! Perfect location and cottage to spend time with my son for the long Labor Day weekend. Superior attention to each and every detail and felt "at home" from the moment we stepped in the door." - Terry K., Hillsborough, NC, 09/05/2022

"Love this sweet cottage! We so enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage that we will return next time we visit family nearby. Emily couldn't have been more accommodating, stocking the kitchen with treats and morning essentials. The Williamsburg-inspired design was perfect for our Bucks County experience. And Yardley is a delight!" - MaryAnn S., Rockport, ME, 08/24/2022

"A Real Treasure! The Cottage's charm is exceeded only by the host's generosity and sharp attention to detail. We highly recommend staying here and look forward to our own return visit! " - Mary B., Brevard, NC, 06/29/2022

"This cottage was absolutely what we were looking for. Very comfortable and amazing outdoor area to sit and visit with family. Beautiful property with lots of wildlife. Very close to all our needs in the area. We will be back for sure! " - James T., Carbon Hill, AL, 06/23/2022

"It was obvious from the start that Emily and Alfred had put a lot of thought into the furnishings and amenities of this beautiful little cottage. My wife and I stayed for five days in May. We enjoyed views of the Delaware River from the well-manicured front yard and we were visited by deer in the back on most evenings. Recommendations for local dining were spot on and we felt like we were close to everything we wanted to see in this historic part of the country. This was a perfect springtime getaway!" - Shawn K., Stevensville, MD, 05/18/2022

"Caring hosts with attention to detail is evident everywhere in this beautiful cottage and surroundings. Thoughtfully appointed with all you need and then some! We came for a weekend and would have loved to stay longer!" - Joan K., Pine Beach, NJ, 05/09/2022

"My wife and I enjoyed a few nights at this "Getaway Cottage" in late February, 2022. It was cold outdoors, but the gas furnace kept the cottage toasty indoors, even without using the fireplace. But the kiln-dried wood and fire starter pieces made it easy to light a fire a couple of times, just for the ambience. The cottage is very well equipped with everything one could want in the kitchen for cooking and serving. The bathroom was clean and nice with plenty of hot water for my long showers. We slept great every night. Overall, it's a wonderful place to stay." - Bob W., Rockville, MD, 02/28/2022

"This cottage was beautiful and a wonderful place to stay. The accommodations are perfect for a couple. Emily and her husband decorated the cottage for Christmas which was so special! They also had drinks and snacks available. Emily was very easy to reach for asking questions. We would definitely stay again when visiting family in the area!" - Elizabeth R., Vero Beach, FL, 12/27/2021

"We have traveled all over the world and stayed in some amazing places. But honestly, I have to say this is one of my favorites. The Cottage is utterly charming, and the parklike grounds are the perfect place for relaxing. We enjoyed a candlelight dinner under the maple tree and a full moon, and sitting on the steps by the front door at night looking at the river and hearing the sounds of insects. Wish we could have stayed longer! " - Anika C., NYC, NY, 09/19/2021

"When I book a vacation home, I look for several things: First is a home that is private. I avoid commercialized places with crowds of people like a resort or condo. This cottage allowed my wife and me to relax alone and in peace. That's true rejuvenation! Second is a place with character. Who wants to stay in a cookie-cutter cottage, apartment, hotel room, or condominium? We love the way we stepped into another world when we entered this cottage. Finally, I want the stay to be a easy to book. This one was a breeze--just the right amount of communication to make everything clear without a lot of red tape and stress. Thank you!" - Jordan L., Guys Mills, PA, 09/12/2021

"Spent two weeks in this wonderful cottage. Immaculate and well equipped. Did not need one thing! Host Emily lives next door and was a wealth of helpful information. Walked every day on the Delaware Canal Towpath, which was very close by. Great Restaurants. Bed super comfortable. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again." - Laraine D., Venice, FL, 07/17/2021

"Lovely cottage that felt like home! Beautifully landscaped and private guest cottage along the scenic Delaware River. Our hosts were very gracious and allowed us to store our bicycles in their barn. Close to towns and conveniently located to trails and restaurants." - James M., Simsbury, CT, 05/16/2021

"We very much enjoyed our stay at the Cottage and Emily's hospitality. Close to the Canal Towpath, Bowman's Wildflower Preserve, and the wonderful Grounds for Sculpture Art Center. The Cottage felt clean and well cared for, with a kitchen well-stocked for preparing meals during this challenging time. We look forward to returning!" - Myra M., Northampton, MA, 09/11/2020

"My wife and I had such an amazing week at this wonderful property. It was our first time out of NYC since January and we were looking for a perfect 'escape to the country.' This property was everything we had hoped for and a whole lot more.... We walked into Yardley along the canal twice, which is a really nice walk, and stopped for a leisurely lunch before walking back. Our favorite lunch spot was the Vault Brewery, where the food was great and the beer even better! We would definitely like to return, and it's a perfect getaway as it's only a short distance from NYC." - Bryan D., Brooklyn, NY, 08/15/2020

"We enjoyed our 12-day stay at this beautiful historic cottage. The location was perfect as our base and we enjoyed the surrounding towns. The cottage was as pictured. The sheets and linens were of outstanding quality. The cottage is well appointed and equipped to meet your every need. Emily was wonderful to work with and very accommodating and helpful. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. It was like our own private B&B. I will definitely look for an opportunity to return." - Mary L., Houston, TX, 06/28/2019

"We stayed here to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary. The property was exactly what we expected, and was very well kept. Emily and Alfred pay great attention to detail and there was not a thing that was lacking in this cottage. Emily went over the top with including breakfast items to get started. I would highly recommend this Cottage. Emily and Alfred provide tons of information on things to do in the area. We particularly enjoyed the Washington Crossing Historic Park and many other outdoor activities. Dinner at the Canal Street Grille was amazing and a walk down the nearby Delaware Canal Towpath rounded things out nicely. We were even able to order dinner one night through Uber Eats. We will definitely stay here again!" - Sherry B., Clarksburg, MD, 05/25/2019

"Cozy, Comfortable, and Charming Cottage! We so enjoyed our 2-night stay here. It was not only clean but felt clean the minute that we walked in. There is a lot of attention to detail that makes your stay comfortable and that most rentals don't consider - like quality hangers with clips, enough towel bars and hooks to hang your towels and also close by the shower, room darkening blinds in the bedroom, fragrance-free linens, and much more. It is decorated just like a house that I would enjoy living in. We so enjoyed having a fire in the fireplace both nights. The views from all of the windows are pleasant and it's private from the main house. There was more than enough space for the two of us. Emily and Alfred are great hosts and Emily is incredibly responsive, helpful, and nice. I can't recommend this rental more and hope to find a reason to return." - Chris K., South Lyon, MI, 03/24/2019

"Emily and Alfred covered every situation that could arise when away from home...from "basics" in the kitchen, to a washer and dryer, to bandaids and aspirin in the bathroom. They did not overlook one detail. A true "home away from home". Immaculate. Private (it truly is a stand-alone cottage!). Cozy. Centrally located to all sorts of activities, from historical sites to New Hope/Lambertville, to flea markets, to Philadelphia and New York. Warm and welcoming every time you pull into the driveway. "Perfect" sums it up." - Sherry S., Bluffton, SC, 06/24/2018

"Delightful holiday on the Delaware River! We stayed 9 nights in this delightful, cozy cottage on the Delaware. On our first night we were greeted by our host Emily. They live right next door, so if you are in need of anything, they are there in a flash. The cottage provided all the comforts of home....comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, and a cozy living room - fireplace and all! Our thoughtful hosts even provided a Christmas tree. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will not hesitate to visit again. Thank you, Emily and Alfred, for being such wonderful hosts!" - Tessa M., Vail, AZ, 12/27/2017

"Little did we imagine how perfect the Cottage would be. We spent two days here: A perfectly sunny day during which we explored the area and one of the rainiest days in a long time. I have to say, the rainy day was my favorite. We enjoyed an endless fire in the beautiful fireplace, watched a movie, cooked a nice dinner and just took full advantage of staying in. I couldn't recommend this place any more strongly. The hosts thought of everything and then some. Thanks!" - Christopher M., Alexandria, VA, 10/30/2017

"We loved our escape. The best hosts you could possibly have, and their efforts are on display with a cottage that offered everything we needed. They allowed us to use all the wood we wanted for their fabulous fireplace. Super location: Close to all the favorite Bucks County spots, yet not in the middle of the tourist congestion you see up the road in the New Hope area. Yardley's a neat town. Wonderful, wonderful stay!" - Philip F., Englewood, FL, 10/22/2017

"We shall return. This place infuses energy and inner peace." - Bob S., Huntingdon Valley, PA, 10/14/2017

"The cottage was the perfect away-from-it-all spot, but close enough to enjoy all the beauty of Bucks County. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the hospitality of our hosts, and the comfort of the cottage. Definitely a redo!" - Jeanette W., Plainfield, NJ, 09/05/2017

"We rented the cottage to host friends for a celebration nearby. The cottage is just beautiful and Emily and Alfred are absolutely wonderful people and hosts. If you are looking for a relaxing beautiful Bucks County getaway, that is within close proximity to town and activities, this is the place you want to stay! Highly recommend." - Tracy R., Yardley, PA, 08/20/2017

"We highly recommend this Bucks County cottage. It's a beautiful & private place to unwind & relax & yet well situated if you'd like some entertainment. Our hosts provided all that we needed and more. We look forward to our return visit." - Sharon K., , 08/07/2017

"We had a terrific stay here. Our host Emily was gracious and friendly and the cottage was clean, comfortable, and equipped with everything one would need. The cottage is elegant but with a sense of ease about it. We rode bikes on the the tow path many times, took advantage of the local restaurants, had a great day at nearby Longwood Gardens, and scouted out all the nearby antique malls. It was a wonderful stay in a exceptional cottage." - Roy M., Hamden, CT, 07/22/2017

"We had a wonderful stay at the cottage of Emily and Alfred. The decor is simply beautiful! Not a detail was missed in decorating this cottage. Emily and Alfred know how to make their guests feel welcome with the kitchen stocked with breakfast goodies like oatmeal and granola to the lovely Yardley soaps in the bathroom. I will definitely recommend their cottage to friends." - Maeve B., Raleigh, NC, 06/19/2017

"The cottage is the perfect place to go for a quick weekend getaway or an extended stay. We went for the weekend and truly wish we had more time to stay. Emily and Alfred went above and beyond in ensuring that we had everything we needed for our stay. They provided us with information about everything from nightlife and local events to dinner preferences and take-out menus. The fireplace in the cottage was equipped with more than enough firewood. This was a very memorable experience and I look forward to the day we go back. Thank you again for allowing us the pleasure." - Ramy A., Keyport, NJ, 10/02/2016

"The cottage was perfect for us in every way we could imagine. The location is very convenient to Yardley and the surrounding communities. It is beautifully furnished and decorated with appropriate period decor and conveniences for a stay. The backyard is very peaceful. We loved having our morning coffee outside and saw deer, squirrels, a baby red fox and heard many wonderful birds. We will definitely return for our next visit in New Jersey." - Stephanie M., La Crescenta, CA, 06/27/2016
