Cottage, 1 Bedroom + 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 3) in Park-like Setting with River Views
The Cottage Bedroom is furnished with a romantic queen-size canopy bed with a luxurious top-quality Shifman mattress and box springs. Also 600-thread-count sheets and a matelasse bedspread. There's a dresser and shelf space to store your things, and a small closet with an ample supply of sturdy wooden hangers and two terrycloth bathrobes. The Tavern Room, a small room between the kitchen and the front hall, provides a twin bed for extra sleeping space. We don't call this a bedroom, because it doesn't have doors you can close or a closet. There's a full-length curtain in each of the two doorways that can be closed for privacy, and both windows have blackout shades. And there are three large drawers in this room that can be used to store clothing. For guests traveling with a small child, we have a portable Graco crib that we can set up in the Tavern Room.

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.
