It has been nice for us to have our own place/space. We will most likely be back near the end of May & early June. If we are lucky, maybe the space will be available for us again.

Perfect Spot in Doylestown

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights in one of Frederic's guest suites. The suite was charming, very clean and comfortable. All amenities were provided. It was in a perfect location and included off-street parking. We could easily walk to all the shops and restaurants in Doylestown, Fonthill Castle and the Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. Frederic is a friendly wonderful host. We couldn't have asked for more. Next time we're in Doylestown, we'll be sure to stay at Frederic's place.

Charming Suites

  • 5 of 5

Due to my work, I was on the search for a short term apartment that was furnished. I only needed to stay in the area for 3 months and was very lucky to find this charming rental which lives true to the write up. I stayed for 3 months in one of their guest suites and it was beautifully decorated and comfortable living which allowed a home away from home feel- just as the pictures presented. Each suite provides all the things you would need for short term stay. The couple who own the place are such wonderful, welcoming and helpful people. The town itself was a great place to live and close to many different locations to explore Bucks County. During my free time, I went to Sandcastle Winery, Buckingham Winery, New Hope, Peddlar's Village, and Downtown Doylestown. I highly recommend staying here over a hotel during your time in the area- whether it be work or vacationing.

WE LOVE STAYING AT OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME..........

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week over Thanksgiving while visiting two of our children and grandchildren. If was a very enjoyable stay. Our suite was very clean, well equipped, quiet.....and...best of all, was the wonderful bed - VERY comfortable and back friendly!! The owners - Frederic and Lisa - were great hosts and very helpful!!

We would highly recommend this Guest House whether it's for a weekend or for a more lengthy stay. The other nice feature is that it's a stone's throw from Doylestown - which is a very historic and fun town. We are looking forward to our next stay during the months of July and August!!

Thanks again, Frederic and Lisa, for everything.....

Mike and Debra
