Bucks County Cottage on the Delaware

1-Bedroom Cottage on the Delaware River in Yardley, Pennsylvania (215-736-1213)

"Emily and Alfred covered every situation that could arise when away from home...from "basics" in the kitchen, to a washer and dryer, to bandaids and aspirin in the bathroom. They did not overlook one detail. A true "home away from home". Immaculate. Private (it truly is a stand-alone cottage!). Cozy. Centrally located to all sorts of activities, from historical sites to New Hope/Lambertville, to flea markets, to Philadelphia and New York. Warm and welcoming every time you pull into the driveway. "Perfect" sums it up." - Sherry S., Bluffton, SC, 06/24/2018

"Delightful holiday on the Delaware River! We stayed 9 nights in this delightful, cozy cottage on the Delaware. On our first night we were greeted by our host Emily. They live right next door, so if you are in need of anything, they are there in a flash. The cottage provided all the comforts of home....comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, and a cozy living room - fireplace and all! Our thoughtful hosts even provided a Christmas tree. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will not hesitate to visit again. Thank you, Emily and Alfred, for being such wonderful hosts!" - Tessa M., Vail, AZ, 12/27/2017

"Little did we imagine how perfect the Cottage would be. We spent two days here: A perfectly sunny day during which we explored the area and one of the rainiest days in a long time. I have to say, the rainy day was my favorite. We enjoyed an endless fire in the beautiful fireplace, watched a movie, cooked a nice dinner and just took full advantage of staying in. I couldn't recommend this place any more strongly. The hosts thought of everything and then some. Thanks!" - Christopher M., Alexandria, VA, 10/30/2017

"We loved our escape. The best hosts you could possibly have, and their efforts are on display with a cottage that offered everything we needed. They allowed us to use all the wood we wanted for their fabulous fireplace. Super location: Close to all the favorite Bucks County spots, yet not in the middle of the tourist congestion you see up the road in the New Hope area. Yardley's a neat town. Wonderful, wonderful stay!" - Philip F., Englewood, FL, 10/22/2017

"We shall return. This place infuses energy and inner peace." - Bob S., Huntingdon Valley, PA, 10/14/2017

"The cottage was the perfect away-from-it-all spot, but close enough to enjoy all the beauty of Bucks County. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the hospitality of our hosts, and the comfort of the cottage. Definitely a redo!" - Jeanette W., Plainfield, NJ, 09/05/2017

"We rented the cottage to host friends for a celebration nearby. The cottage is just beautiful and Emily and Alfred are absolutely wonderful people and hosts. If you are looking for a relaxing beautiful Bucks County getaway, that is within close proximity to town and activities, this is the place you want to stay! Highly recommend." - Tracy R., Yardley, PA, 08/20/2017

"We highly recommend this Bucks County cottage. It's a beautiful & private place to unwind & relax & yet well situated if you'd like some entertainment. Our hosts provided all that we needed and more. We look forward to our return visit." - Sharon K., , 08/07/2017

"We had a terrific stay here. Our host Emily was gracious and friendly and the cottage was clean, comfortable, and equipped with everything one would need. The cottage is elegant but with a sense of ease about it. We rode bikes on the the tow path many times, took advantage of the local restaurants, had a great day at nearby Longwood Gardens, and scouted out all the nearby antique malls. It was a wonderful stay in a exceptional cottage." - Roy M., Hamden, CT, 07/22/2017

"We had a wonderful stay at the cottage of Emily and Alfred. The decor is simply beautiful! Not a detail was missed in decorating this cottage. Emily and Alfred know how to make their guests feel welcome with the kitchen stocked with breakfast goodies like oatmeal and granola to the lovely Yardley soaps in the bathroom. I will definitely recommend their cottage to friends." - Maeve B., Raleigh, NC, 06/19/2017

"Lovely furnished/maintained cottage on lovely grounds. Cottage was well-stocked and owners made us so welcome. A lovely retreat in historic Bucks County." - Carol W., Henderson, NV, 05/11/2017

"The cottage is the perfect place to go for a quick weekend getaway or an extended stay. We went for the weekend and truly wish we had more time to stay. Emily and Alfred went above and beyond in ensuring that we had everything we needed for our stay. They provided us with information about everything from nightlife and local events to dinner preferences and take-out menus. The fireplace in the cottage was equipped with more than enough firewood. This was a very memorable experience and I look forward to the day we go back. Thank you again for allowing us the pleasure." - Ramy A., Keyport, NJ, 10/02/2016

"The cottage was perfect for us in every way we could imagine. The location is very convenient to Yardley and the surrounding communities. It is beautifully furnished and decorated with appropriate period decor and conveniences for a stay. The backyard is very peaceful. We loved having our morning coffee outside and saw deer, squirrels, a baby red fox and heard many wonderful birds. We will definitely return for our next visit in New Jersey." - Stephanie M., La Crescenta, CA, 06/27/2016

"We stayed at Emily and Alfred's cottage for a week and it was perfect. When we arrived Emily took time to welcome us and show us around. There was plenty of room for our family of three and they provided us with more than enough towels and cookware. The cottage felt very safe and quiet. We loved our stay!!!" - Margarita V., Overton, TX, 06/21/2015

"We spent a 4-day Easter vacation at Bucks County Cottage with our two small children and had a fantastic time! Emily was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about events and things to do. We found the cottage to be the perfect get-away from the city. Truly a home away from home. Looking out on the Delaware we discussed George Washington's crossing with our kids, had an Easter-egg hunt in the sprawling yard and enjoyed evenings by the fire in the living room. All around, the cottage exceeded our expectations and we will definitely come again!" - " - Thomas T., Brooklyn, NY, 04/21/2014

"My wife and I needed a last minute getaway with our kids (toddler and 11 yr old) and found the cottage through a Bucks County website. Owner Emily kindly facilitated a 2 night stay even though the minimum is usually 3 nights. Emily took care of showing us around as soon as we arrived and provided some essential groceries which was a nice touch. The cottage is as described, quaint, romantic with very nice furnishings, modern but with an old world feel. It is a one bedroom with a side bedroom perfect for a kid. Bathroom and bedroom are modern and excellently maintained. There is a nice garden for kids to play in and a grill available for outdoor cooking. The cottage is 25 mins drive from New Hope/Lambertville and local attractions and consequently is competitively priced by comparison with B&B's and hotels in the New Hope area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back for a longer stay in the future." - Simon W., New York, NY, 07/22/2013

"We had such a wonderful time and absolutely fell in love with this place. It is such a beautiful setting in an ideal location. Our 10 day stay went by way too quickly and we could have easily settled in for much longer. Owners Emily and Alfred have done an amazing job with attention to detail in every aspect. They truly make you feel extremely comfortable. The pictures really don't do justice to this charming cottage. We awoke early one morning to see deer grazing in the front yard and a red fox foraging in the back yard. On our walks and bike rides along the canal we saw horses, geese, swans, herons, and all kinds of songbirds. It was such a great way to start our day. The home was extremely clean, very well maintained, and loaded with many nice little details and amenities. We just loved that milk frother for our morning coffee! There is a wonderful book and game collection with lots of information about the surrounding area. There are so many things to do, places to see, and an awesome selection of great restaurants. We had so many wonderful meals and found it difficult to pick just one favorite. We quickly felt right at home here and would highly recommend it to anybody visiting the area. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Emily for all your helpful tips. We will be back to visit again! " - Steve G., Orange County, CA, 06/02/2013

"This cottage is amazing! It has everything that you need and a little more. 5 stars at a 3 star price. Comfortable bed with the softest sheets, bath has big fluffy towels. It has all the charm and feel of an old colonial with modern features. The living room is comfortable and the fireplace adds to the warmth of the cottage. We loved just sitting by the fire and watching the deer from the windows. The owners; Emily and Alfred have thought of everything and their hospitality is beyond words. We will most definitely be back for a longer stay." - Debbie T., St. George, UT, 12/03/2012

"This past April my mother, sister, and I spent a few wonderful days in this fabulous little cottage. The downside: It wasn't nearly enough time to explore the area. The upside: Perfection and Charm. The museums, shopping, restaurants, beautiful views and friendly people made our trip even better. We wore ourselves out each day and then spent each evening snuggled in front of the fire with a glass of wine. Emily & Alfred couldn't be better hosts. They live right next door, but you will never know they are there unless you need them. And if you are at a loss for something to do - just ask - they are a wealth of knowledge. The moment we entered the front door we were instantly at home. This little cottage has all the comforts you would expect from a fine hotel - only much more charming. Thank you for making our mother/sister trip unforgettable. We will most certainly be back!" - Jacqueline E., Dallas, TX, 04/28/2012
