About Betsy Low
Native New York City girl and a lover of Bucks County! Can provide tips and suggestions on all the best antiquing, restaurants, bars, sightseeing and any activities you are interested in covering the entire County.
Betsy Low purchased this House in 2015
Why Betsy Low chose Point Pleasant
My home is the best rental property online in Bucks County. It has all the charm and history you could possibly want for your country getaway, all year round. This historical home is perfect for the leaf-changing season in the fall, cozening up to the fireplace in the winter, antiquing and driving around with the top down in the spring and taking a dip in the magnificent backyard pool in the summer.
What makes this House unique
All bedrooms have their own en suite bathrooms for extra privacy...no sharing required! Plus a powder room on the main floor. Very unique for an old home such as this and cannot be found anywhere for rent in the entire area.

This is the place to stay in Bucks!
This house is incredible. It has the historic authenticity you crave coupled with the modern amenities you need and the comforts of home all wrapped into one. Beautifully decorated, perfectly clean, with fabulous beds and bedding and a cozy TV room—we enjoyed every aspect of it. And Betsy is the best host. She was there to greet us and tour the house and provided tons of information on the area including where to eat, shop and antique...including a couple of secret spots. We can't wait to go back in the warmer months when the pool is open as this is our new go-to destination for nice, long getaway weekend.
THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN BUCKS COUTY
It is hard to imagine a better scenario than the picture-perfect Pierre House! Nestled in the sweet hamlet of Point Pleasant, Betsy's renovated historic 200 year old stone home is perfectly appointed and only a short distance from New Hope, Lambertville, Doyelstown and Solebury. The house itself is immaculate and you can see the attention to detain in every corner. The bedrooms are all lovely with the most comfortable beds and bedding, each with their own bathroom! The TV room is especially wonderful and where we spent much of our time when we weren't out and about exploring all the wonderful things the area has to offer. Betsy was extremely helpful in suggesting all the fabulous restaurants to eat in, the best antique shops, where to apple pick and even buy local art. We were fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of the beautiful weather and BBQ and eat outdoors by the pool in the bucolic garden. I plan on visiting again in the winter months to enjoy a snowy weekend in front of the fireplace. Thank you Betsy for creating a perfect getaway and look forward to returning soon!
Very cool house
Yard and pool a big plus
Most amazing terraced lush backyard
Betsy is a great owner to communicate with and she is very accommodating to our requests and so responsive to our emails before and during our entire stay.
My favorite things about the house are the lush plants surrounding the delicious pool and the modern appliances in the kitchen - Viking stove with six burners is awesome!
My most negative impression is the persistent musty / mildew smell that pervaded the house - maybe the house doesn’t get enough sunlight. Even with the AC on blast we couldn’t dehumidify the house enough to get rid of the smell. The couch and bed (way too soft for us) felt very damp. Lastly the water pressure and hot water supply arent the best but acceptable for older houses.
For these reasons the house isn’t the best value but I am sure you will quickly realize in your search there is a lack of good options in this area.
So nice to hear that you enjoyed my wonderful home! It was unfortunate that during your stay not only was extremely hot but it rained 24/7 for many days in a row. Perhaps this is what may have cause some humidity to accumulate in the house but I have to say that during check-in there was not a hint of it, nor when I returned home after check out. I also stayed in touch during the course of the stay and did not hear a peep about it even after persistently asking if everything was ok and being assured that all was great.
To future guests: Please keep in mind that the original stone structure of my home was built in 1790 giving it the historical charm that is coveted in Bucks County. The additions that were added to it contain ALL the modern conveniences you can imagine—a chef's kitchen, radiant heat floors, a heated swimming pool and NEW plumbing, A/C in every room, gas and wood-burning fire places. Truly a vacationer's dream house! So please come and simply ENJOY!
We loved loved loved our stay. It is a wonderful house and such a beautiful place... we will return.
Thank you Laura! It was a pleasure hosting you and your lovely group. Thanks for taking such special care of my home. I look forward to hosting you again soon!
Charm, comfort and proximity
Four of my granddaughters, my grandson-in-law, infant great-granddaughter and myself stayed at this terrific house while in the area for another granddaughter's wedding.
Betsy was at the property to meet and greet us and to give us a house tour and some hints for our stay.
All of us loved the house. Since it was rainy and chilly for most of our stay, we made good use of the fireplace & heated floors! Since all of my granddaughters play piano, that was put to use as well.
I just wish that we could have taken advantage of the pool since I really loved that area.
To find a charming, older house with ensuite bathrooms is quite unusual and was my main reason for booking this property. (As well as proximity to the wedding venue which was only about three minutes away!)
The house is very conveniently located to many interesting places for sightseeing.
Getting out of the driveway is a little dicey, but if you go out slowly, and let yourself be seen, it is not much of a problem.
The one feature that I feel is lacking is the use of a washer and dryer. It did not matter much to us for our four day visit, but for a stay of a week or more, it would certainly be helpful.
What a pleasure hosting Judy and her lovely family! So glad they enjoyed my beautiful home and all it's lovely features.
Please note that I do offer the washer/dryer for guests staying more than a week.
Bucks County's northern regions (colloquially referred to as Upper Bucks) are renowned for their natural scenery, farmland, colonial history, and proximity to major urban areas (particularly Philadelphia, but New York City, Allentown, Reading and Atlantic City are also within a two-hour radius).
Bucks County is home to ten covered bridges that are still open to vehicular traffic. Two other bridges, both located in parks, are open only to non-vehicular traffic. All Bucks County bridges use the Town truss design. The Schofield Ford Bridge, in Tyler State Park, was reconstructed in 1997 from the ground up after arsonists destroyed the original in 1991.
Popular attractions in Bucks County include the shops and studios of New Hope, Peddler's Village (in Lahaska), Washington Crossing Historic Park, New Hope & Ivyland Railroad , and Bucks County River Country. Rice's Market near Lahaska is a popular destination on Tuesday mornings. Quakertown Farmer's Market (locally called "Q-Mart") is a popular shopping destination on weekends. The county seat of Doylestown is also home to several points of interest for tourists, and also is home to Fordhook Farms, the famous trial farm of the Warminster-based Burpee Seeds. Doylestown also has the trifecta of concrete structures built by Henry Chapman Mercer, including the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, the Mercer Museum and Fonthill, Mercer's personal home. All within 15-20 minutes of my home!
