The SpaceWelcome House Farm is situated on a quiet back road in Bucks County. The main house from the 1700s, as well as the carriage house, a renovated bank barn from the 1830s, are situated on 16 acres of fenced and open pastures as well as woods and is located a hundred feet from the main house.
We encourage guests to help themselves to the vegetable garden and fresh eggs from our free range chickens. The pool is accessible to guests and is surrounded by forest on three sides providing a very tranquil backdrop to pool side relaxation. The barn is on the other side of the stream at the back of the property and is home to three horses, chickens, and a few barn cats . we have two dogs as well.
The carriage house is huge, about 2,300 square feet, not including the mudroom, and has three floors. The bottom floor is an entry way and mudroom, at the top of the stairs are supplies (broom, dyson vacuum, ironing board etc.) with an entrance at the top of the stairs into the kitchen on the main floor,and the third floor is brand new and has twin bedrooms.
The main part of the carriage house has several large windows with wonderful views, great lighting, high ceilings, and an open living and dining room area. There is a pull out couch adjacent to the fire place (with a comfortable pillow topper on the mattress). There are board games, an electric piano, and 2 armoires for extra clothing storage for longer term guests.
The carriage house bedroom has a spacious closet, book case with cubby spaces, large windows with views of the pastures and woods. We splurged for the feather bed topper, bamboo sheets, and tempurpedic pillow option which allows for a very enjoyable night's sleep.
The closet is fully stocked with several fresh towels, a change of linens, extra blankets, and a wide variety of toiletry supplies in case you might have forgotten anything.
The kitchen has several new appliances and all the kitchenware you could want including a kitchenaid mixer, for those who love to bake etc. There is a variety of tea and a nespresso machine for those that are coffee lovers (there are French presses for regular coffee as well).
There are 4 twin beds upstairs in the newly furnished top floor for additional guests.
Overall, it is a very peaceful place surrounded by nature. We are around the corner from a dairy farm with fresh milk and a wonderful local orchard that has a deli and makes fresh baked goods. Additionally, we are down the road from Lake Galena which offers great trails for walking as well. Guest AccessGuest will have access to the entire carriage house as well as pool, garden, and are free to walk the grounds during their stay. Getting AroundThe nearest bus and train station is in Doylestown, the county seat, and is about 10 minutes away. There is an additional bus stop in Dublin which is about a mile from our house.
