The space

This 1800s hideaway in the heart of artsy Lambertville NJ has a knock-out kitchen (complete with marble countertops and authentic cabinets from Jim Morrison's last US residence out in West Hollywood), that opens up onto your secluded courtyard and garden.

You'll have 1 Queen bed, made up with Egyptian linens, plus 1 twin sleeper sofa in a separate 2nd floor dan. These 2 sleeping areas share a full modern bath (tub and shower and even dressing table), with Juliette balcony that opens out over Secret Garden.
For your convenience, there are 2 TVs, an ipod with everything from Billie Holiday to Rockpile, and wireless internet.

It's all just 1.5 hours from NYC and 1 hour from Philly (see below for public transport) But why would you want to leave?
You'll be surrounded by art galleries, antique shops, more than 2 dozen cool restaurants -- and you'll be right on the historic Canal path which is treasured for biking, kayaking, paddle-boarding!

Can there be more? A short stroll over the bridge'll take you to New Hope PA for Friday fireworks in summer, a newly re-opened Bucks County Playhouse, fun global music at St Johns Church, and an active historic society.

These 2 river towns host special festivals throughout the year -- Shad Fest, Winterfest, Autumn House Tour, Spring Garden Tour!

Plus, you're only 3 miles downriver from the incredible Stockton Farmer's Market (F/S/S, throughout the year)
and 6 miles upriver from Washington Crossing State Park, where George Washington made his famous crossing during our Revolution.

It's easy to reach Lambertville by car, and Secret Garden comes with a parking spot (this is a BIG DEAL in Lambertville)
but you can also get here from NYC via the TransBridge Bus ($40 one way, 1.5 hour trip from Port Authority, free wi-fi on board) and get dropped off 2 blocks from the Secret Garden!

Check out my photos and feel free to message me, Melanie, with any questions.

Melanie's place is in an amazing area, the quiet and beautiful town of Lambertville. She met us in person when we arrived and was extremely friendly and gave us plenty of useful local tips. Her home is right along the water and the secret garden is perfect.

Perfect location, charming space. Right next to everything you could want to get to in Lambertville, and a short walk across the bridge to New Hope. The location really cannot be beat and is worth the price alone. The space itself is somewhat rustic, comfortable, and full of char…

Melanie's place is just steps from the bridge between Lambertville and New Hope so it is wonderful to really be in the center of the action. I came by bus and there was truly no need for a car. Her place is quaint, artsy with flair, fantastic bed and overall very comfortable. …

Melanie’s place was excellent. Top location, very comfortable, and great value. That said, the real star here was Melanie. I accidentally booked the wrong date, and she couldn’t have been more helpful or made it easier to switch my reservation. You won’t go wrong with Melanie!!
