Upper Black Eddy House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Full Baths, Sleeps 12

This lovely new home is a vacationer's dream. Situated right on the Delaware River, within sight of the Milford Bridge, the home features 3 spacious bedrooms, a loft, a spectacular kitchen (a 'foodies' dream) and family room, two-sided fireplace, a deck on each level of the house plus a large secluded deck on the river, outdoor bar, sun room and 4 full baths.

Thoughtful planning for guests of all ages and capabilities include a four floor elevator and straight access shower, making it ideal for multi-generational families who want to enjoy time together. The house and expansive property afford you plenty of room to be together or be apart.

Whether a romantic get away, time with friends and family or action-packed adventure is your goal, this river home is your ticket to relaxation. The home is large yet cozy; its warm atmosphere makes you feel far away even though you're only 90 minutes from NYC and 75 minutes from Philly.

Relax by the wood-burning fireplace and enjoy the bright airy feel of the home and the spectacular view of the river. Or gather around the outdoor fire pit.

Spot bald eagles, and great herons, swim or fish from the deck. Canoe, kayak and bicycles are available to you. Walk, cycle or cross country ski on 60 miles of tow path, a short distance from the home. Or explore lovely towns on the River like Frenchtown (an 8 minute drive), Stockton (15 minutes), Lambertville and New Hope, a scenic 25 minute drive down river.

Young families may wish to visit Sesame Place, the Crayola Factory or Ringing Rocks.

For more options see sister home www.homeaway/257901 located one mile upriver.

If you are interested, kindly list your telephone number, as I would like to speak you to determine if the house will be a good fit for you.

Family fun time!

  • 5 of 5

For a second year, our growing family (3 generations) stayed for a weekend at this beautiful home. We were excited to return, and our stay did not disappoint! It was so very nice to be able to spend time together in Joan's lovingly designed home, everyone was comfortable and we enjoyed cooking and mealtimes on the deck and at the large kitchen table, walking on the towpath, going for a canoe ride, or just relaxing! We are already making arrangements for our 2017 weekend since the whole family loves this home.

Happy Repeat Renter!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented both of Joan's river houses for 3 weeks at a time. We took the "big house" this year so we could accommodate more family and friends. It worked out perfectly, but that's not a surprise. These houses are beautifully and thoughtfully appointed and if the house doesn't already have what you need, just call Joan and she will find whatever tool, gadget, cooking utensil, etc., to make your stay better. Our group had FIVE 88-year-olds, several with special mobility needs, and the house elevator, wide hallways, hardwood floors and special bathroom features made it completely manageable. While the "oldsters" were lounging on the deck, the "youngsters" paddled kayaks and rafts in the river. If you love watching wildlife, sunrises/sunsets, and river boaters/skiers, there is never a lack of entertainment. And there is plenty to see and do in nearby towns. And don't forget the canal towpath for walking and biking for miles and miles. We've already booked for next year and can't wait to get back!

River Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

When our normal summer plans had to be switched because our dad broke his leg, we were so lucky to have found Joan and this home! First, it had a beautiful elevator and handicap bathroom. The elevator went to all 4 floors, so our father could still move around in his wheelchair with 100% ease! Our group, was our entire family (8 people all over 25 and one grandchild). All of us had a wonderful time on the river. The home was absolutely outstanding and had everything we needed and more in regards to amenities. You really don't need to bring anything besides your food, the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms were very clean and updated. The house, was so large and had so many rooms, that everyone had some privacy when they needed a nap or wanted to read. The only negative was that we could not stay longer because we all had to return to work. This was our first time ever using one of these rental sites, but Joan was extremely helpful, sweet, and professional. If I had a question, she always answered the phone when I called. If you are thinking of doing something completely different and relaxing, I highly recommend this property. The location of the home is right on the river, and it's is also great in terms of location to Frenchtown for walking around into the smaller shops. We will for sure be returning next summer!

Exceptional home

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been exclusively using rental properties for our vacations for over fifteen years. This one is a gem. It is a high-end home, tastefully decorated and well-appointed. It is exceptionally clean and well cared for as well.

We felt immediately relaxed in our surroundings. It is as it appears in the photos and is situated in a quiet spot along the river. It is in a rural setting, but we enjoyed the walk over the bridge to a quaint town with a bakery, small grocery, and a few restaurants. New Hope is an easy drive down the river and is wonderful spot full of shops and restaurants, and Philly is a short drive away as well if you're in the mood for a day in the city. There are several small communities in the area available for exploring.

Joan is a pleasure to work with and a phone call away, if needed. It is immediately apparent she is a caring and kind person. We would recommend this lovely rental wholeheartedly. I look forward to renting from Joan again on our next trip to the area.

Family Vacation for Ages 25-100!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both of Joan's river homes. The younger family members stayed in the smaller house. They loved kayaking and canoeing between the two homes. It took them 15 minutes to get to the the larger home by boat.The older family stayed in the larger home, including me. I advise you to read all the reviews--they are all true. These were the best homes we have ever rented in terms of cleanliness, furnishings, location, amenities and customer service from the owner. My favorite feature was the elevator: necessary for the 100 year old, perfect for one who had a broken foot, helpful for another with a bad knee, great for getting luggage and groceries upstairs. The kitchen was superb. The younger people enjoyed the game/music room. Joan even supplied us with a tin of hammers to use at the nearby Ringing Rock park. And then there was the magnificent view of the Delaware River. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and to rent these two homes in Upper Black Eddy again.

Perfect from Top to Bottom :)

  • 5 of 5

Have you ever been at the top of a mountain, or taken your first sip of coffee in the morning or woken up to the sunrise.....taken a deep breath....let out a sigh...and just felt like you were in the "right" place. That is exactly how you feel when you step foot into this lovely home facing the beautiful Delaware River. The owners are lovely, the home is perfect for extended family, every finish in the home is beautiful, the towels are yummy, the gourmet kitchen truly has everything you will need (and then some), the main sitting room is ample for all those staying but there are plenty of nooks and crannies if you need a moment alone, nearly every room has access to a deck, there are reading lamps near the beds, there is a screened in porch for the mosquito wary, bikes for everyone in the family and the nearby towpath for the perfect family ride.......whew....I cannot say enough good things about this lovely home and it's lovely owners. Do not miss the chance to share this with your family and make time stop for the weekend or week!
