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.

Great Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home to celebrate our 50th anniversary in Bucks County. What a wonderful surprise to find this home above and beyond our expectations. The piano in the living room by the warming fire was a very fun addition to our piano playing family (and it was in tune). Our family was also was very happy to find a bathroom with each bedroom plus a lovely second floor library. The layout of this historic home, which by the way was nicely heated in zones, has a tv room away from the piano playing so both could be done at the same time. We also found the kitchen to be well supplied with several dish sets and glassware for those celebratory toasts. Betsy has a beautiful home and made it very inviting for her guests. She is welcoming, easy to deal with and our experience was memorable and would look forward to coming back another time.

Charm, comfort and proximity

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautifully decorated, charming, cozy, private retreat

  • 5 of 5

Betsy was great to work with and responded very quickly. The home is located on a Main Street but still felt very private and quiet. Back yard oasis made us feel like we were the only house there! The furnishings are very comfortable and tastefully selected and placed. Great time at the local bar we could walk to!

A wonderful unique experience for our family of six. An adventure that you just can't find anywhere!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this unique experience that had the best of everything...location, history, and comfort. The three (and a half) modern bathrooms were perfect for our family. The outdoor area with grill, pool, and great lighting was wonderful . We also loved the charming historical and original feel of this three story home. We have stayed at numerous cookie cutter rentals that have worked well for our family, but you simply can't find one like this that is do very unique, the kids loved it and will remember this for years. Betsy was a great host and even mailed back one of the kids stuffed animals that they left behind Such a great week at a historical,quaint beautiful place.

Very nice house in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 6 plus an infant enjoyed staying here quite a bit. The house is very comfortable and stylishly decorated. Each couple had a pleasant bedroom and private bath. The weather was unusually hot and humid, so the pool and pretty garden area were very welcome features. We did pay extra to have the pool heated which was a good idea as otherwise it would have been quite a shock to go from 90+ degrees into an unheated pool. There was an generous supply of large pool towels. Window air conditioners provided sufficient cooling inside. The kitchen was amply stocked with cooking equipment and utensils for our breakfasts and lunches, and the area has many good restaurants for dinner. The driveway was sufficient for parking our two rental cars. More than that would have required some other arrangement. Backing out of the driveway onto the busy highway was somewhat terrifying, but we always had one family member positioned on the road to signal when it was safe to enter the roadway. Over our 3-day stay Betsy frequently checked with us by cell phone to ensure that everything was OK.

Map

Car: recommended

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.[12]

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!
