First off, if you are not familiar with the area, Bucks County is a centrally located area of beautiful farmland and quaint small towns. For our family reunion, it was perfectly located for those driving from Virginia and New England, as well as those flying in from the west coast. Multiple major airports are within an easy drive. The coffee/ice cream shop up the road was just a little walk away and there was a short drive across the bridge to stores with everything we needed. We even found good takeout pizza.
The house itself was perfect for the 11 of us – and perfect for my wheel chair bound father. He was able to access all parts of the house with ease and enjoy what everyone was doing. The four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms were perfect for us – I am including “the loft” because it is really a separate room with its own en suite bathroom, and possibly even the best room in the house due to the private balcony on the fourth floor, offering a great view of the river.
The game room kept the kids occupied and away from the television. When not in the game room, everyone was out on the river, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, or just looking at the view. Now, this is nature, so there were plenty of flying insects and spiders outside, but that is to be expected. The river was very nice and the water was fairly clear, offering a view of the bottom even in the middle of the river. I did purchase tourist fishing license, but we did not catch any fish. We also took some of the bikes for a ride on the tow path. There are several bikes to choose from, even one suitable for a child (preferably a girl since my boys were not interested in riding a pink bike).
The owner was very nice. Everything was ready for us and we had no problems with the house. She even left a welcome note and a bottle of wine. There were condiments in the fridge already, so we didn’t have to waste money on buying spices and other items we needed to cook our meals. We even managed to roast marshmallows and make s’mores one night.
Overall, I highly recommend this location and this specific property. We will likely return at some point in the future.
