This special farmhouse; which once was a Historic General store during the 1850's, is located in Bedminster Village. The property is a 25 acre farm in the heart of historic Bucks County, Pa. The "General Store" was converted to a private home in the early 20th C. This large building is professionally decorated and is great for families, bridal parties, wedding guests, groups of friends, or corporate retreats, of eight or less. There is a full kitchen, large dining area which may also be used as a conference and meeting place, and is easy to find. Affectionately named; "General Hotel" from previous tenants. Currently the living area is (mildly) decorated to replicate the general store as it may have been in the late 1890's. The space houses many original artifacts to delight the interests and engage curiosity. The house is remodeled and fully furnished with all the modern amenities and luxuries while preserving the historic value of the structure. The accessory building (which was an old icehouse for the general store), now houses an indoor Jacuzzi and lounge and is used throughout the year.
