200 year old 1400 sq. foot home with front porch, side yards, trees and bluffs in the backyard; the Delaware River is across the street with small views from the porch; short walk into the quaint river town of Milford where there is a micro-brewery/ restaurant, antique shops, and market; perfect for biking, walking, kayaking and tubing; an easy getaway from NYC or Philly. The home was an old stagecoach stop but has been completely updated and immaculately decorated with antiques.
This home was built in 1814. The small building in the back we think was the 'summer kitchen'. it was a stage coach stop at some point. You will see that the river is just across the street. If you cross the bridge into Pennsylvania just down the street, there is boat access right there. This area is popular with boaters, canoes, kayaks and tubers in the summer; if you walk into town, the state's first microbrewery is a bar/ restaurant called the Ship Inn. There is also a market and antique shops in town--all a very easy walk. Also, please note that we have a TV with a HDMI connection (to hook a computer up if you have movies on your computer), and a DVD player. We do not have Cable and because we're in a river valley the TV doesn't get reception on its own.

The whole home is accessible but there is nothing in the attic or basement that would be of interest. The small garage is not accessible. Please park in front of the garage or just to the right of it (on the crushed rock). also the small building on the outside, the summer kitchen, is not accessible as its just used for storage.

Outras coisas a ter em conta
Have fun. The narrow road that follows the river just outside the front door is a favorite with road bikes and motorcyclists. There is an old inn at Rieglesville just across the river and about 5 miles north--it has live music and good food (Riegelsville Inn). Otherwise you can just walk into Milford and find a pizza place, micro-brewery, market with beer and liquor, and a few antique shops. Follow the river south enjoying the scenery as you stop in Frenchtown and Lambertville; two more bucolic towns that are host to more restaurants and shops.
