This is a spacious and well appointed home for a large group. In season, the outdoor spaces are especially lovely. The decor is fine but not fussy so you can feel relaxed and enjoy yourself. Beautiful rental!
We stayed here with extended family for our daughter’s graduation weekend and the house and gardens were the most lovely and gracious container for all of us! It is wonderfully private and wooded with enough patio space and furniture for a small army and two large gas grills. The hosts, Steven and Stephania could not have been more lovely. The architecture of the house comes from a gilded age of large rooms and high ceilings and marvelous nooks and crannies and the dining table could easily seat 18. We adored cooking in the huge kitchen on six burner gas restaurant stove (serious BTU’s!). It is a marvelous place to come home to!
It was lovely to host you. Thank you for being such a wonderful guests!
Lovely home- perfect for extended family get-together
Our family recently stayed at the Roosevelt estate and Stephen, the owner, couldn't have been more accommodating or hospitable. We were thrilled to be able to fit under one roof as we were visiting the area and nearby Princeton (50 minutes) in honor of my father who recently passed. The kids loved playing hide and seek in all the rooms and splashing around in the swimming pool. In the evenings, we cooked dinner in the large kitchen and played cards and games. The house is clean and very private, surrounded by wonderful large trees and gardens. It is also perfectly located - with access to New Jersey and Philadelphia. Sesame Place (for kids) is also a short 35 minute ride away and made for a fun way to spend a sunny afternoon. Highly recommend for those looking to spend quality time as a family.
Serene Family Getaway
We were a family of 12 coming from 3 states for our reunion and to visit colleges. Once past the gate there lies a Tuscan retreat wherein we could have been blissfully content all week. This Roosevelt House is like a museum (if the walls could talk) and the grounds are a botanical feast. Even with the treasures inside and out we felt completely comfortable, welcomed in many ways. Upon entering the home we were greeted with wine, Prosecco, Perrier and bright blooms throughout. Items provided included coffee/tea, spices, sponges, soap, ice, plenty of TP…AC and ceiling fans work well; furniture is cozy/family friendly. My favorites are the grand tables inside and out where we dined, chatted, gamed, and puzzled. Weather was ideal for the inviting pool (never smelled chlorine) and grill. The outside space is truly an entertainer’s dream with a sprawling decked out terrace. It is the kind of property where everyone can claim personal space. There are gates around and a large grassy area so Cleo, our terrier, could sniff to her heart’s content. Everything is close-by; we visited beautiful college campuses, Philly Museum of Art, Fort Washington State Park and strolled across the street to a very welcoming church with the historic Union Cemetery. Encouraged by the gardens and the park lining the property we heard birds singing all day. The night sparkled with fireflies. Last but not least the owners Stephen and Stefania have an ease and kindness about themselves: they made sure we were happy. Ursula, my 86 year old mother said it best; “There is an organic serenity to this sanctuary.”

Amazing beautiful property
I stayed in this property this pass memorial weekend for my birthday with family and friends. Wow I had a great weekend in this house. Our stay was fabulous. The property was exactly what I wanted. Couldn’t have ask for any better! The pool n grill was perfect the property was stocked with everything imaginable and well furnished. We have stayed in lots of properties and by far this is the best value. We have already talked about renting this property before the summer ends. As per the owner Stephen very quick to response and makes everything so easy. Thank you so much Stephen for a wonderful experience!
Beautiful Charming Estate
This charming home was the perfect place for our extended family to celebrate graduation. It was so spacious and the accommodations were all terrific. The back patio with its beautiful landscaping was the perfect spot to relax. Truly felt like a home away from home. Would surely stay here again!
