An ancient ash tree shades the Cottage and provides wonderful fall color.
Feel free to move a comfortable chair into the front hall and enjoy the river view from there.
Bring your bikes (or rent them when you get here) and ride into town on the Delaware Canal Towpath.
Watch the birds or enjoy a pretty sunset from the English garden bench in the back yard.

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Yardley, Pennsylvania
Your very own Colonial Williamsburg-style cottage with wood-burning fireplace in beautiful Bucks County, Pennsylvania, in a park-like setting on the Delaware River. The Cottage is 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 executives. 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. <BR><BR>The living space in the Cottage is all on one floor. The bedroom has a four-poster queen-size bed with crocheted canopy, matelasse spread, and 600 thread-count sheets. The 'Tavern... Read more

We spent a week in August at the cottage for our yearly family vacation this year -- the first time my husband and I had traveled alone with our almost-2-year-old twins. It was simply wonderful! The cottage was adorable and we were able to fit our family in quite well for the week -- not much more expensive than a decent hotel room, but multiple rooms such that the kids could go to bed in...

We spend amazing vacation in this cottage. Every single detail worked perfect- starting with a warm welcome from the owners, little gifts for our kids and beautiful card inviting us to feel like home. The place has all accessories to do so- you can cook your own meals, there is a dishwasher so it's easier to clean after. You can do your laundry which can be a big thing with kids and after visiting Sesame...

We stayed for a week, while visiting family. The cottage was perfect for our needs. With a private bedroom, a separate sitting room, a full bath, a small, yet functional kitchen and an office/extra bed space, there was plenty of room to spread out. I feel the cottage would work well for a couple or a couple with a child. Every aspect of the property was exactly as described. The location has a nice view...
