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.

I had stayed here a few years ago with a group of friends for a wedding in the area and we enjoyed our stay very much. Recently, my fiancee's family was looking to stay in the area for a small international family reunion of nine people to stay under one roof for some quality bonding time.
I was tasked with finding a home that would accommodate the various family groups and facilitate the quality time we were looking for. I immediately thought of this house.
We were coming from Los Angeles, New York and France, and this home in Bucks County is a great place to get away from it all and relax, yet still be able to go into NYC and Philly to see the sites.
The rooms are a generous size, with private bathrooms in each. The common spaces are well thought out and numerous. And the grounds are substantial and nicely maintained. It is well-situated in the area so it is quiet and peaceful to encourage togetherness, yet close enough to all needs of numerous adults - like groceries, coffee, restaurants and shopping - if and when need-be.
I've been lucky enough to stay in a number of rental homes over the years, and this one is by far the best stocked and maintained. There are all the necessities like pots and pans, but also almost any other kitchen widget you might need. There are also lots of games and equipment to entertain young and old alike. From bikes and canoes, to construction paper (with markers) and a games table, everything has been thought of. The bathrooms also come well-stocked with linens and soap, which is more rare than you might think with other rentals.
The owner has thought of everything to make your time in the home as special and easy as possible. She makes it feel like you are going to your favorite relative's house for a week in summer to have fun, relax, and be taken care of. She is so thoughtful and sweet.
If (When!) you come to the river house, you'll want to come back again and again. I have!
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!
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.
This House has it all! Unbelievably well Designed Kitchen, outdoor Deck that leads to Dock on The River, w/ Kayaks. Two sided Fireplace in Den, beautifully appointed Bedrooms, Bicycles for the Tow Path!! 20 minute drive from all of me fave places;New Hope, Lambertville, hiking, etc. Staying here, provided my Family, and I,w/ one of the nicest weekends EVER. Can't wait to go back!!!! Ron W.
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.
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!
The house is located right on the Delaware river, providing the perfect opportunity for swimming, canoeing, kayaking and fishing. Close to the Delaware Canal tow path for bicycle riding and hiking. About 30 minutes to New Hope, Lambertsville and Doylestown. Families with children will want to visit Sesame Place and the Crayola Factory.
