Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Our architecturally unique hideaway is located in bucolic Bucks County, Pennsylvania a little more than one mile from downtown New Hope. The “treehouse” is nestled at the peak of Solebury Mountain on a one acre wooded lot. This Topsider brand hexagon home has 360 degrees of windows so nature can be enjoyed from every room. You could stay a weekend, a week or a month and still not experience everything Bucks County has to offer. Namely, the almost unlimited number of boutique and antique shops and award winning restaurants of New Hope, Lambertville (2.0 miles), Newtown (11 miles), Lahaska (4 miles) and Doylestown (10 miles). Or venture north and south along the Delaware River and experience the charming towns on both the Pennsylvania side (Washington Crossing, Yardley, Carversville, Upper Black Eddy) or the New Jersey side (Lambertville, Frenchtown, Rosemont, and Stockton).

Bucks County is home to acres of preserved farm land and boasts 9 wineries and offers year round activities. It is conveniently located 30 miles from Philadelphia and 70 miles from NYC with train service from nearby Yardley, Princeton or Trenton train stations. Come watch the leaves change, pick apples (Solebury Orchards) tackle the Amazing Maize Maze (Howell Farm - Titusville), cheer on the High Heel Drag Queen Halloween Night Race (New Hope), take a Ghost Tour (New Hope) or view the Scarecrow Exhibit (Peddler’s Village – Lahaska) in the autumn. In winter the New Hope/Lambertville Winter Fest held in January brings out ice sculpters, live bands and cold weather activities. Or get in the holiday mood by viewing the Grand Illumination at Peddler’s Village (Lahaska) and checking out the Gingerbread House competition. Or jump on the New Hope/Ivyland Railroad for a ride with Santa and then head out to the Byer’s Choice Factory (Chalfont). Don't miss the re-enactment of Washington Crossing the Delaware on Christmas Day. No better time than spring to flea market (Golden Nugget – Lambertville, Rice’s Market – New Hope) or welcome the shad at the annual Shad Fest (Lambertville) which brings over 10,000 visitors to the area. Ahh, summer in Bucks! Countless farm markets for picking or enjoying the fruit of the land. Canoe the Delaware River, bike the canal path, watch fireworks from the New Hope/Lambertville Bridge, dine al fresco (too many to mention!) hike through Ringing Rock State Park (Upper Black Eddiy – don’t forget your hammer the rocks really do ring) or take the kids to Sesame Place. The options are limitless!

Exhausted after your daily outing? Head back to our cozy treehouse and relax by the firepit . The “treehouse” is newly decorated with sleek, modern décor. It can comfortably accommodate 2 – 4 people. Square footage is 900 sf interior space and 200 sf outside decking. It may, however, not be suitable for a young child or physically challenged adult due to an open, spiral staircase. The home can be accessed from the second floor to avoid use of the staircase if necessary. Please call the owners with any questions.

Circumstances do not permit us to live in the home yet (i.e. a family) but we know in the future it will be our “happy place”. Come enjoy our Tree House for a long weekend, a month or longer.

Don't miss the re-enactment of Washington Crossing the Delaware on Christmas Day. No better time than spring to flea market (Golden Nugget ? Lambertville, Rice?s Market ?

About Owner/Manager

We recently purchased this property because of its tree top location and its unique architectural style. At some time in the future when we are empty nesters we expect to live in our 'tree house' part of the year. Until then, we are sharing its beauty with you.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Owner/Manager chose Bucks County

We live in Bucks County and love the location with its proximity to the Delaware River, New Hope and Lambertville. It is a wonderful place to live or vacation.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our anniversary weekend here at this amazing house - it was everything we expected it to be, and so much more! Come up the winding spiral staircase and you'll find yourself smack in the middle of a nearly 360 degree view of nature's pure awesomeness, including majestically tall trees which provide you the luxury of canopy shade & seclusion. The beds are comfy, the shower/water pressure is excellent, the lighting is perfect, the firepit is great - everything works in the house. Lisa and Ken are most gracious hosts, they set up the house perfectly for us and answered any of our email questions almost immediately. While we loved the seclusion this property offers, you've got fabulous Bucks County at your feet. Discover New Hope, Lambertville, NJ, Doylestown, Frenchtown and Lahaska, PA all within just a few miles! Between this beautiful house and the amazing surrounding area, you'll have a hard time deciding if you want to stay in or go out! Highly recommended, we loved it! We will be back! Thank you Lisa and Ken!

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Came here to get away for our 10 year anniversary and we are so glad we did. Lisa and Ken have a clean and perfect place to go if you need to get away for a week or weekend. They sent a detailed list of area restaurants and place to go for the weekend. It made planning the surprise getaway a lot easier for me. We are looking forward to returning soon with our children.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Spent a girl's weekend here and had a fun and relaxing time. The "Tree House" was the perfect spot and looks exactly like the photos. It was stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Ken & Lisa were a pleasure to deal with. They sent a helpful list of things to "see & do" in the area. We will definitely be back - would be fun to visit once each season as the trees change.

Serene, clean, and convenient. Excellent place!

  • 5 of 5

I'm so thrilled to have found this little place! It was immaculately clean, clearly very loved and cared for by the owners, so tranquil, and very conveniently located. I have 3 amazing girlfriends who are like sisters to me. We take a trip annually to reconnect with each other without the distraction of husbands, babies, pets, etc. This place so perfectly what we were looking for that we will most likely just keep coming back to it.

First of all...it is soooo clean!! I am very picky about this and a lot of HomeAway places are ok but not great. Not this home. They do a fantastic job keeping this place clean and you can see the love and care they put into it.

The pictures don't do it justice. When you are in the living room you are surrounded by nothing but trees. We got to watch the sunset through the trees with a small family of deer quietly grazing. It was pure peace. You can't hear any hustle and bustle, you can't see any people, and you don't even see the nighbors houses. We loved just sitting in, throwing in some DVDs and relaxing with each other that first night.

We didn't spend the whole weekend in. We went in to both New Hope and Lambertville. There are a TON of cute shops to explore. We had lunch at the station and found it to be fresh and delicious. Dinner at Blue Moose was seriously note worthy! And all of this was only a 10 min (if that) drive in. The location is so perfect!

Noteworthy - you can hear everything in the home. The walls are paper thin. This didn't take away from our experience at all but it might not suit your needs if you are looking for privacy.

The owners made booking and communication a breeze. They were quick to accommodate our last minute request to get in early. They left detailed notes about the area and their recommendations. They really go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need.

I have NO complaints and happily recommend it! It's so perfect we're thinking of tying down our annual trip to this location and the treehouse!

Awesome Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing - centrally located with tons of nearby restaurants and activities, but also feels secluded in the woods. We will definitely be coming back soon!
