    The Mill at Cuttalossa Farm

    by jelw Updated Dec 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of my very favorite places in the world. A grassy knoll with a charming mill, babbling brook, towering hemlocks, smiling sheep and a manger. It looked just like this 40 years ago and still looks just like this today.
    The mini-sheep are often out in the meadow, if not they are in the equally charming mill barn (shown in the next photo) .
    This fairy tale setting is located on Cuttalossa Rd, in Solebury PA. Drive about 8- 10 miles North of New Hope on the picturesque River Road following the scenic Delaware then take a left on Cuttalossa Rd. (just after the stone quarry) at the Cuttalossa Inn.
    An amazing stop on your driving, bicycling or hiking tour.
    This is just as beautiful as it gets!
    The web link for Solebury Township is helpful in planning your visit to this historic and pictorial site as well as others in the area. Scroll down the page a bit to view delightful and interesting subjects for your tour.
    Please take a look at the second link to get a close up of the Babydoll sheep; you'll see why we call them smiling sheep.

    Interiors of old train station

    by Pawtuxet Updated Jun 1, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the old wood stove still sits in the middle of the floor to keep the station warm You can find brochures on local attractions here. Usually there is someone to answer questions, and of course, you can arrange to board the train! Nice job of keeping the station in good repair.

    duck your head!

    by Pawtuxet Updated Jun 1, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's rather pleasant to walk along this little path beside the canal. We had my dog, Aussie with us, so of course she enjoyed getting away from the crowds as much or more than we did. As you pass under the bridge, you have the feeling you need to duck your head, even tho it is a clearance of a little more than 6 feet. I'm pretty short, but I ducked too. Guess it's the darkness of it..an optical illusion, I suppose.
    I wonder how the mules feel about it.

    Fonthill and the Moravian Tile Works

    by kazander Updated Apr 30, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Bucks county about 15 minutes away from New Hope, there is a pretty interesting castle called Fonthill that Henry Mercer built and lived in. It's filled with with tiles both of his design and collected from around the world. Mercer also owned The Moravian Tile Works, which is located just down the road. This where his designs were created, and are still being made today. You can tour this building as well and learn a bit about tile making

    A gift shop is located at the tile works. You can purchase some of the tiles that are hand created there.

    Unique Architecture.....

    by bct341 Written Sep 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    New Hope has a lot of different styles of buildings due to how long it has been around and its humble beginnings.

    Here is a an old small rowhouse which has been converted into an Oriental antique store I like the quaintness of the building... this kind of building reminds me of the homes built in mining towns.

    Here is a spot by the canal where they welcome bikers and hikers. Space to park your motorcycle. Or...for my husband to inspect this snazzy Harley.

    Some of the old houses have been converted to be restaurants.. stores.. and other types of shops. The good thing is that the architecture is preserved for the most part
