  • Insider's Info

    Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Mary for sharing her own secrets with BBOnline.com!
    Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

    Our tagline is “A Faraway Place Close to Home.” Travelers are seeking luxurious relaxation, a romantic getaway or a home base from which to pursue active pursuits or an exploration of the arts. We are located within two miles of the culturally rich area of New Hope and Lambertville which abounds with art galleries, performing arts venues, antique dealers and other merchants. The 35 mile Delaware River Canal recreational area is a 5 minute walk from the Inn and offers some of the best cycling, jogging and walking trails along the Delaware River.

    What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

    The Inn is best known for its beautiful setting on a grand, historic 10 acre country estate surrounded by 300 acres of protected farmland perched high above the Delaware River. It is within 3 miles of the cultural city hubs of of Lambertville and New Hope yet seemingly far away. The historic stone buildings date back to 1792 yet have been renovated with modern and luxurious features. Breakfast at the Inn is consistently regarded as a meal that is never forgotten. And…we have four sheep grazing on our property - guests love to watch then and some even venture to feed them. They are friendly and help create that special relaxed atmosphere.

    If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

    Lambertville and New Hope offer the unique blend of cultural richness, active lifestyles, and the freshest culinary goods thanks to abundant farmland.

    What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?

    “It’s just so easy to fall in love with everything about this place"

    What’s the best kept secret about the area?

    I think its the fact that there really is so much to see and do - most people think of one thing such as antiquing or tubing down the river, but there are lots of things to do on both sides of the river and in all directions.

    If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

    Bike, run or stroll along the Towpath, picnic at Bull’s Island, venture down the river in a kayak, canoe or tube, see a play at the Bucks County playhouse, tour one or more of the many wineries in NJ or PA, shop for antiques, browse local galleries, visit Washington’s crossing, tour Bowman’s Wildflower Preserve, select from a wide range of nice restaurants and experience different fare each day or night, enjoy drinks at the historic Boathouse Tavern in Lambertville, venture to Frenchtown, NJ or take a long drive through Bucks County PA.

    Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?

    The recreational jogging/walking/cycling paths along the Delaware River are just a 5 minute walk and downtown Stockton with its fine collection of restaurants, weekend marketplace and fine wine purveyor is only 5 minutes further.

    What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?

    We have many favorites, but for a perfect romantic and memorable dinner we recommend the Inn at Phillips Mill in New Hope PA

    Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?

    Yes, the Delaware River Towns website and printed guide is useful, also visit bucks.com and the PA or NJ visitor’s guides (on line)
