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 Bucks County

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.

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.

Wonderful long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. We spent most of our time out by the pool. Kitchen is very well stocked. Betsy was a pleasure to work with. She made sure that we had everything we needed and was accessible by phone if we needed anything or had questions.

Not a good match for us.

  • 3 of 5

We have rented through Homeaway before with good success but this house wasn't a good match for us. The alarm for the septic system went off on our first day there. This was mentioned as a possibility in the "arrival book" as well as a note that renters need to take short showers or there will be no hot water. I think if this is true of a house, one should know it before one rents it. This is important information. So, for our entire long weekend (the wedding weekend of our daughter), we took short showers and worried every time we flushed the toilet. In addition, the kitchen was not clean--there was a greasy film on everything and we spent a morning cleaning it. Also, the fridge had lots of food in it that wasn't ours and a distinct odor--we cleaned that out too because there was spoiled milk in there. Lastly, the freezer was full of food. We succeeded in getting a small box of popsicles in there, but that was it.

As for the rooms, the beds were very comfortable and the linens were of nice quality. We slept in the top bedroom and have to also point out that there was not much storage for clothing--half of an armoire and one drawer which meant we worked out of our suitcases and our clothes were wrinkly. We could have used an iron, but could not find one in the house for our use. The dining room does seat six as stated, but there is no ceiling light in the dining room, only 2 lamps, so we found it very dark.

The back yard is the nicest feature of this house--lovely gardens and a small pool. We paid extra ($50/day) to have it heated. It was very nice.

This house is on a busy road and it is noisy with large groups of motorcycles touring the area. The owner responded to our questions very promptly.

Owner's Response: Sometimes it’s difficult for guests who are not used to staying in VRBO properties to be understanding when circumstances are not that of a hotel or their own home and I’m sorry this was not a good fit for them. That being said, let me clarify their issues please: - Septic system: Yes the alarm went of as it does sometimes but did communicate promptly to reinsure them that our sceptic service will take care of everything and to enjoy the weekend without another thought about it. They seemed to be overly concerned about something that was not an issue an issue at all. EVERYTHING WAS FINE, as expected. - Cleanliness: The house was cleaned only a few hours before their arrival. The "greasy film” on the kitchen counter was from products on our marble. This might happen in the summer, depending on the humidity. Here again, EVERYTHING WAS FINE and clean. - Lamps: We have 4 LAMPS (not 2) in our living/dining area. We also leave plenty of candles to let guests create their own ambiance. So EVERYTHING WAS FINE and with a little bit of imagination, they could have had an amazing experience. - Fridge + Closets: We always leave condiments in the fridge for our guests to use so they don’t have to stock up themselves (ketchup, mustard, mayo, BBQ sauce, pickles, etc.). It’s the 1st time somebody actually complained about proving this for them. For the closets, we live in our house and we are not able to empty it totally for short-term renters. We leave 2 closets + shelves in 2 bedrooms and 1 full closet in the 3rd one, including cabinets, dressers and drawers. EVERYTHING has always been FINE for all our other guests - Motorcycle noise: Our house is on River Road which is known as one of the most scenic road of the east coast. This great feature comes obviously with its success and on sunny summer weekends, people from all over (including our guests) come enjoying our magnificent River Road drive. Traffic varies a lot depending on the weather and the time of the year. Once again 1st time somebody even mentions this. EVERYTHING WAS FINE for all our other guests. - The iron: We have an iron for our guests, it is in the 2nd half of a closet. Wish they would have just asked if they couldn’t find it. As a conclusion, I will agree on 1 point: definitely not a good match. I would recommend them a Best Western next time instead of an authentically charming 200 year old stone home on River Road :)

A+ rental - totally recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Great home rental - the place is beautiful, and perfectly located along the Delaware River to go see so many great locations throughout Bucks County. Listing and descriptions were accurate, everything was clean and wonderful, & all in working order. Owners were really great, too - - attentive, and easy to reach for communication. The Black Bass Inn is about a mile way - a great restaurant and historic place. And so is the Lumberville General Store, and lots of parks and small-town destinations. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone looking -- just remember, it's an older home, so things like getting out the driveway easily into traffic weren't zoned by townships back then, and while the wonderful bathrooms and kitchen are all modern and upgraded beautifully, dimensions were smaller decades ago and older homes weren't built with all of today's preferences in mind. That said, an A+ rental - totally recommend.

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!
