About the property

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.

A dream fulfilled

  • 5 of 5

From the moment that we requested to book with the owner, the experience was a delight. The owner personally guided us through our requests and couldn't have made the process easier. Then we arrived! The house is simply gorgeous, from the ground floor to the 4th floor, with an incomparable view of the Delaware just steps from the rear of the house. We had a tremendous amount to transfer from the cars to the kitchen because we were providing a weekend of meals for 11 of us who gathered to celebrate a 70th birthday, and the elevator was invaluable. The kitchen and dining area were a cook's/host's dream and the two sided fireplace warmed up no matter where we were in the main floor of the house. Each bedroom and each bathroom were beautiful--magazine worthy! Had we stayed longer (only 2 nights this time), we would have utilized the outdoor opportunities of kayaking, biking, hiking, and visiting the precious towns nearby, but NOBODY wanted to leave the house! We most certainly will be back!

A great weekend for 3 generations

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Joan’s houses either 3 or 4 times – and each stay was extraordinary. In January 2017 we celebrated my husband’s 80th birthday and this house was perfect for a group of adults (us) and children ranging from 15 months to 16 years of age. Three generations were perfectly happy in this well designed home. Highlights: sitting in front of the fire – at any time of day; cooking in that marvelous kitchen; sharing wonderful family times around the large table; walking to Milford for what we left at home (the Milford Market is a step into the past and not to be missed); and perfect sleep in very comfortable beds. On both January visits, we were greeted with a beautiful snowfall on Saturday morning. The view from the house of the Delaware River, with both sides of the river covered with snow, is absolutely beautiful. As the parents paying for the weekend, we of course have our choice of rooms – and we can attest to any bedroom as being perfect: first trip we took the Master on the 3rd floor and this trip we chose the bedroom off the living/kitchen area. We’ve loved them both. The last words of our adult children: we have to come back here in the summer! Indeed, and we will.

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!
