Cottage, 1 Bedroom + 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 3) in Park-like Setting with River Views
About Emily Glossbrenner
Bucks County Cottage on the Delaware is owned and managed by Emily and Alfred Glossbrenner, authors of over 60 commercially-published books with combined sales of over a million copies. We also wrote and published 'How to Make Your Vacation Property Work for You,' the very first book on the subject of do-it-yourself vacation rentals.
Emily Glossbrenner purchased this Cottage in 1987
Why Emily Glossbrenner chose Morrisville
Every location has its charms, but we have always been particularly charmed by Bucks County, PA. Historic sites, homes, and public buildings dating from the late 1600s on; the Delaware River, teeming with wildlife; the mule-barge canals with their towpath bike trails; European-style restaurants located in old inns; and easy access to New York and Philadelphia by train. Under the circumstances, how could we *not* have ended up buying a 200-year old Bucks County farmhouse on the Delaware River, complete with a rented bungalow, which we later turned into a vacation-rental cottage that we love sharing with guests from around the world.
What makes this Cottage unique
It's like staying at one of Bucks County's legendary inns and B&Bs, except that you have the whole house to yourself. So you can sleep as late as you please, fix your own breakfast in the well-equipped kitchen, and come and go from your own private driveway. You can spend your days relaxing in the living room with views of the Delaware River and a crackling fire in the woodburning fireplace. Or sit outside on the English Garden Bench with a glass of wine and a good book. When you're ready to venture out, just head north on River Road to Yardley (2 miles) and New Hope/Lambertville (13 miles). For more details, visit our website at buckscountycottage 'dot' com.

Luxury, quiet, and much close by
The cottage is a delight. All is luxurious and welcoming. The hostess and host are attentive to detail, offer their assistance, yet give total privacy. You need not research what to do or where to dine. This is all provided and makes the getaway even more relaxing. There is so much to do within a short distance. Yet one can look out the window at the Delaware River, walk along a canal, or sit by a fire. The cottage is pristine and homey. I'm refreshed and happy having been there.
Perfect Weekend Getaway
Emily and Alfred were fantastic hosts. Good communication leading up to our stay, they greeted us when we arrived, gave us the keys to the cottage, had a friendly chat, shared some suggestions and where to eat and what to do that only locals would know.
The cottage is incredible. Perfect size for our 1 child family. The location is unbeatable. Emily and Alfred keep it in perfect condition and provide everything you could possible need during your stay. We've already recommended it to others.

Great place, warm, comfortable, everything you need! I highly recommend it and am usually hard to please. I had a wonderful stay and look forward to going back. Thanks so much Emily!
Beautiful cottage - your private B&B
We enjoyed our 12 day stay at this beautiful historic cottage. The location was perfect as our base and we enjoyed the surrounding towns. The cottage was as pictured. The sheets and linens were of outstanding quality. The cottage is well appointed and equipped to meet your every need.
Emily was wonderful to work with and very accommodating and helpful. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. It was wonderful to stay in such a well maintained and loved property. It was like our own private B&B. I will definitely look for an opportunity to return.
Incredible place to stay
We stayed here to celebrate our 35th Wedding anniversary. The property was exactly what we expected, and was very well kept. Emily and Alfred pay great attention to detail and there was not a thing that was lacking in this cottage. Emily went over the top with including breakfast items to get started. I would highly recommend this Cottage. Emily and Alfred has tons of information on things to do in the area. We particularly enjoyed the Washington Crossing Historic Park, and many other outdoor activities. Dinner at the Canal Street Grill was amazing and a nice walk down the Delaware Canal towpath rounded things out nicely. We were even able to order dinner one night through Uber Eats. We will definitely stay here again!!
Shopping and antiquing in New Hope and Lambertville. Hiking, biking, and birding. Fabulous Bucks County restaurants. Rafting and tubing on the Delaware River. Tours of historic Washington Crossing Park, Bowman's Tower, Bucks County Winery, Michener Museum, and Henry Mercer's eclectically built and furnished Fonthill Castle (1908) in Doylestown. Spend an afternoon in Princeton: Picnic components can be bought at the shops on Witherspoon and Nassau streets, then pick a place on campus to have your lunch. Visit Cottage Club on Prospect Street, where Scott Fitzgerald set a scene from *This Side of Paradise*, stop in at Firestone Library, and don't miss the University Chapel, with its magnificent stained glass windows. Built in the 1920s, the Chapel is considered one of the great masterpieces of American Gothic architecture.
