About this listing
Circa 1900 farmhouse, renovated with a stylish mix of modern design and antiques. On a quiet road in historic Bucks County with 3+ acres, fenced-in lawn (pet friendly), in-ground salt water swimming pool. Just 90 minutes from NYC or Philadelphia.
2 full size bedrooms plus a sleeping loft in attic and another separate alcove with day bed. Comfortably sleeps 8. Huge kitchen plus outdoor gas grill make this a cook's paradise. Lounge by the pool in summer months or sit in the screened porch watching the butterflies that flock to our echinacea flower garden. Birdwatchers will be rewarded! 2 fireplaces for cozy winter evenings, TV with DVD player & Chromecast device for access to Netflix and other web-streaming video services, Wi-Fi.
Guests have the entire home and property to themselves.
Interaction with Guests
I am available by phone, text or email if any needs or questions arise.
Close to Delaware River for kayaking, canoeing, tubing, etc. Bike trails, antique stores or just walking in the woods make this an idea getaway from city life.
Nearby trails for cross-country skiing in winter. Close to charming villages of Frenchtown, Millford & Lambertville, NJ, as well as New Hope, PA.
Parking for up to 5 cars is available on site. There are buses available from NYC to nearby towns, but taxi services are few and expensive. Having a car is essential as the nearest town is an hour's walk away.
Other Things to Note
Note: although home will be thoroughly cleaned before your stay, it may not be suitable for those allergic to pets as we have 2 dogs who are often there and they may leave residual dander behind.
Also - please note that this property is not suitable for weddings and other large gatherings!! There is parking for a maximum of 8 cars in the driveway (and that's if they are all crammed together) and there is NO possibility of street parking on our road.
Well behaved pets are allowed, no smoking inside the house.
This is not an investment property, it is my own vacation home that I use to escape from city life. I hope that guests will appreciate the things I love about my home and treat it with the same respect they would treat their own.
Our experience at Mary Wharton's farmhouse could not have been better. It is cozy, spacious, totally charming and in a lovely, quiet setting in a beautiful part of the country.
Eight members of my family stayed for 5 days for the occasion of my daughter's wedding - all very comfortable. It was the perfect place to host a large gathering the night before the wedding - large, well-equipped kitchen, and great common rooms - everyone raved about the house.
Mary's communications and information made everything easy. And she left us a bottle of champagne to celebrate the event!
Our stay was in the dead of winter! The warmer seasons can only be lovelier.
Very nice house, not too far from the city.
Fully equipped with anything you may need to spend a few days "disconnected".
Mary is a great host, very quick to reply.
