Lumberville is in the Central Bucks school district which usually gets high ratings. It is pretty rural and borders the Delaware river in the east portion. Its not too far north of new Hope. Homes in the area range from 500,000 to over 4 million.

Default Lumberville info

Hi - I live in Doylestown, about 20 minutes from Lumberville. Lumberville is a small community on the Delaware river and consists of about 20 - 30 houses on either side of PA 32 (River Rd). There is a general store, a few B&Bs and the Black Bass Hotel which is bar/restraunt that dates back to before the Revolutionary War. There is also a very cool pedestrian only bridge that crosses the Delaware into a state park on the Jersey side of the river. A tow path runs along the river and serves as a bking/hiking path but unfortunately it was trashed by a series of floods that ripped down the Delaware River a few years ago. Flooding is a major concern if you are going to look at buying a house in Lumberville!
I'm pretty sure that Lumberville is part of the New Hope-Solebury school system which is excellent. I was a substitute teacher there and the public schools have a very private school feel because of the small class sizes. The high school has about 500 kids total! Education is a hot button topic in New Hope and parents are very involved in what happens at the school. The arts are a big part of the New Hope scene and this is reflected in the school system as well.

Good luck with your search, if you like Lumberville take a look at New Hope and Point Pleasant PA (there is a Point Pleasant NJ also) as well.

Oh - the nearest hospital is in Doylestown 20-25 minutes away and it is pretty good - I haven't had to use it (knock on wood) but I haven't heard any major complaints.

Lumberville is in New Hope Solebury.
You also have Hunterdon Hospital in Flemington NJ. REgardless, you may make it to Doylestown faster but depending on tourists- 25 min is fair.

Think beautiful. Think flooded depending on what time of year and which year.
Think- high ground off River Road and travel for everything but lumber and coffee.
That said- it's still one of my favorite places in the world.
