One of the oldest dwellings in Lewisburg (1795), in excellent condition, airy and light-filled, looking out at the river from our front porch. Backyard with two arbors and a barbecue. A five-minute walk to the shops and restaurants on Market Street.

Please note: we do not provide parking, this is in-town, so you park on the street in front of the house or nearby. VERY IMPORTANT: do not leave your car on South Water Street after 7 AM on Mondays--they sometimes tow! Move around the corner.

The space

We thank Airbnb for introducing their Living Wage pledge. We could not make this home available without Denise, who prepares before each guest and makes it a lovely place to stay. We have made the commitment that she will be paid fairly for her work, which should be everyone's right.

Guest access

You can access everything (front and back yards, the porch) with two small exceptions: the basement is locked, and we have blocked off a small back room on the second floor, as storage.

Interaction with guests

We are not nearby but provide emergency contact numbers, including a neighbor. We are very available by email and text.

Other things to note

As already noted, parking is on the street only, although we have never had a problem finding space. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CAR ON STREET AFTER 7 AM ON MONDAY! They sometimes tow for street cleaning.

Beautiful house in a great location. We loved being able to walk into town and also to the river. Very quiet neighborhood. Van is a great host. The house was extremely clean and spacious.

This is a charming home, in an excellent vacation. Our family was in town together for my son's wedding, and we couldn't have selected a better location. We had a beautiful view of the river from the front porch of this historic home, and were walking distance from the village's main street. The kitchen had everything we needed for preparing meals together, and the bedrooms were comfortable. Thanks, Van!

The beds were very comfortable and all of the bedrooms had window air conditioning units, as did the living room downstairs.

Great old house & a great way to move our son into Bucknell as a freshman. Great location to downtown and owner is pleasant to deal with. I recommend this place!

I stayed here for a wedding with 5 other people, and it fit us all comfortably. The house was sweet and right near the main stretch of town - within walking distance. The scarceness of mirrors and outlets posed a pickle with a bunch of ladies getting ready at the same time. But other than that, the stay was great.

Great getaway place! We shared the place with another couple, friends of ours, and everyone was comfortable. The beds were VERY comfortable. The view of the river from the front porch is soothing to watch. The house is hidden from the road, which is kind of nice and offers some privacy on the front porch. Almost everything in the town is in easy walking distance, including Bucknell campus. The hosts have set up the place comfortably while maintaining the historic feel of the place. I heartily recommend it as a getaway location!

The house was wonderful, full of era comfortable furniture and amenities. In the back of the house is a perfect lovely shade garden for relaxation, full of ferns and hostas. The house is ideally situated for a pleasant walk downtown to enjoy restaurants,shops and Antique Malls.

This is the family home of a Bucknell University professor, which his three sons are maintaining. It has been in our family since 1963, and we take good care of it. It's a five minute walk to the shops and restaurants on Market Street, and for breakfast you can stroll across the bridge at the head of South Water Street to May's Drive-In, just across the river. The house has a backyard with two patios and arbors, and a big Weber grill for barbecuing. The kitchen is spacious, and it has an old-fashioned "mudroom" as a back porch. We like to sit on the front porch when the weather is warm, and have coffee looking at the river flow by.
