Loved my first stay here - Sherri and her staff were polite and professional...room was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Highly recommended - much more enjoyable than dealing with over-priced Center City hotels.
Overall our stay was wonderful. We were greeted by our hosts and they proved to be very accomodating and pleasant. Laura was very informative regarding the restaurants and local attractions; printing off information and making reservations for us. We stayed in Springhouse with 3 other couples which was nice because we had the entire dwelling to ourselves. They are in bad need of renovation which should include updating the TVs but overall the bed was comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace. There was a problem with plumbing in Springhouse that was not pleasant and when brought to Rick and Laura's attention, they took care of the problems and compensated us for the inconvenience.
The home is very clean, beautifully decorated and warm and inviting. Warren is a complete professional from check-in to check-out to the magnificent meals he prepares each morning. I found he had a story behind many of the items that were served and interesting tidbits of information related to the renovation they did when they purchased the Inn. I took a sunrise walk in the neighborhood and sampled great food from nearby restaurants. I will return.
My husband surprised me with a two night stay at the Inn at Bowman's Hill. And what a surprisingly wonderful and magical stay it was. Since his retirement, we have been trying to find common ground on most everything and have not been able to get away much--Well!! Our two day stay at this fabulous Inn was just what the retirement counselors advised. Luxurious dining, wonderful location to hike, browse antiques, and even have a good nightcap at the Tavern nearby. The rooms are perfectly appointed and well stocked starting with our Champaign toast after check in, and including our overly generous breakfasts both mornings after restful sleeps--ps the Oreos had me every night for a nightcap. The Innkeeper, Mike and his trusted Chef are to be applauded. What a perfect getaway and great celebration for my 64th Birthday!!
Emailed the B&B a few questions before booking and got a quick response (within hours), which was nice. Arrived around 6pm, after visiting area attractions. They do an afternoon cheese and tea, which we missed, but the hostess was kind enough to set the cheese out again for us and make us some tea, which we enjoyed in the rocking chairs on the front porch. Upon check in, they have you sign up for a time slot in which to attend breakfast in the morning. Having arrived later than everyone else, all the later slots were taken, which meant getting up way earlier than we'd have liked in order to have the breakfast. The breakfast was scrambled eggs with veggies, but seemed more like a quiche, but it was good. Since it was last minute and we weren't going to be spending a lot of time there, we opted for the least expensive room. Room was in the main house, 2nd floor, back corner, so it was quiet and cozy. I am not a fan of carpeting, and feel that in general the room and its bathroom could use a little updating. Unless we are 100% in love a place, we rarely return, but instead try out other places in the area next time. If we ever did book here again, we'd prob spring for the suite or cottage rooms. Overall, pleased with the location and stay for the price.
We stayed for four nights during an emergency visit to NJ for a family member's hospitalization so our stress was high, and Genie and Murray helped to reduce the stress with their kind support and nourishing, comforting breakfasts. It is a lovely inn for feeling at home without micro-management. We love it. Brenda Donahue & Chuck Herbruck
We recently spent a total of 4 nights at this lovely B&B. It’s a wonderfully quiet retreat that exceed our expectations. The setting was wonderful as was the service. Innkeeper Mike was a delight and without going into what some might consider unnecessary detail, even gave us a private concert of sorts over breakfast one morning with his violin! The rooms were cozy and offered all the amenities we could have asked for. Breakfasts were amazing and hearty enough to hold us over to the dinner hour. We would highly recommend this great place – highly recommend! Walt & Diane Fanti
We have been staying at the Gables for perhaps 7 years now, whenever we visit our son. Don and Warren are such great hosts, and the conversations around the breakfast table are always friendly. The house/rooms is decorated with plethora of artifacts and furniture that make staying there an interesting discovery of history.
The Inn At Bowmans Hill in New Hope is truly one on the finest bed & breakfast inn's we've ever stayed. Our room - especially the lush bed - is fit for royalty, or at least someone who expects the best in design and comfort. Until you're lying there it sinks in that this is uber hospitality The king size four-poster was plush with layers of beautiful colorful pillows, coverlets, 750 thread sheets, and a very comfy mattress with a nearby flat screen TV and trays for midnight snacks which were plentiful in the small refrigerator. We did indulge ourselves. The bathroom had a very large jacuzzi to romp in, a nice big shower, secluded commode, and a heated towel rack. All of this we later found out was adorned with meticulous detail by the owner, proprietor, and entrepreneur Mike Amery. He has impeccable taste in truly fine fixtures, etched glass, and window treatments which were all so well done. In the morning we roamed downstairs to a 4 star breakfast, fresh coffee, greeted cheerily by Mike and his staff, then we relaxed poolside overlooking the rolling hillside, beautiful pond, 100 foot trees, and lush landscape of the Inns property. If you want that really special weekend in New Hope there is nothing like The Inn at Bowmans Hill. It is a peaceful country paradise and we are definitely coming back for another weekend.
We appreciated the lovely antiques and paintings decorating the living and dining area. We plan to make trips to this region often now and plan to stay at your Inn.
We were looking for a weekend away to relax. Stayed one night and it was lovely. For me, its the little details that count and these hosts did that- soft towels in the bathroom, nice-size bedrooms (bath was small but it's an old home), lovely tea in the afternoon and great breakfast. Hosts made sure we were set for dinner reservations and at breakfast, gave us suggestions of where to go.
This bed and breakfast was a great find and will be staying there again. It was clean and very comfortable. The shower was INCREDIBLE. It was a first night away from the kids in a long time. Never made breakfast, but smelled delicious.
A very comfortable house and a nice place for a walk in downtown Philadelphia. Chelle Greenfield is a perfect host, discreet and avalable whenever needed. Chelle's breakfast is an absolute bliss, with a good sense of humor. I warmly recommend South Bridge B&B!!! Thanks Chelle! Frederic
We spent two great days at The Gables. The house is beautiful, well-kept, with lots of history. Even nicer than the pictures. We were greeted by Warren and showed to our room, we felt at home from the we set foot there. Excellent breakfast is served from 8-9:30. The large driveway is a plus if you have a car, but it's also pretty easy to park on the street. Great neighborhood for walking around, perfect distance to Penn either on foot or by trolley (stops almost at the door!) We will come back!
We were unable to get a B&B room in Philly due to a convention occurring at the same time we wanted to travel there, so we found the Lily Inn, which was about 20min from Philly. What we found in Burlington was a gem with two superb owners. The Lily Inn is in an historic building that is more than 300 years old - although it has been upgraded to modern standards, it maintains its colonial charm and original features. We would definitely stay at the Lily Inn again!!
I stumbled upon this wonderful Inn while searching for a birthday gift for my husband we never stayed at a B&B so I bought a gift certificate and we just recently stayed here. We loved everything about this romantic B&B, grounds were amazing Mike & Louisa were a delight they told us all of the great dining places we really enjoyed it!! We will be returning !! Can't wait :)
We spent a long weekend at The Gables while visiting my daughter at U of Penn. The house was a wonder to enjoy both from the outside, inside and the history. The owners, Don and Warren were very welcoming and hospitable. The breakfast was always well prepared and thoughtful along with the "snack" room. I highly recommend the Gables and will return in the future.
We made reservations at this B&B based on the website and were pleasantly surprised at how the stay met our expectations. We were greeted by the owners who were gracious hosts. They showed us to a beautiful room with a view of the fall leaves changing colors and treated us to a home-cooked breakfast in the morning. It is very nice of them to open their home to lucky guests like us! Hope to stay there again soon!
We searched online for a hotel near our 50th class reunion location and instead found a bed and breakfast. After reading the reviews and looking at the photos, we decided to give it a try. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, an interior designer, and given a tour of the inn. The inn was decorated with interesting pieces of furniture and art, creatively and tastefully placed. The innkeepers were very warm and attentive, and the breakfast that followed each morning was delicious. So glad we found the Alpenhof Bed and Breakfast Inn!
Our stay was very pleasant. The room was clean & comfortable, and Bob gave great recommendations on where to go for dinner. Unfortunately, because we stayed over Sunday night, the town was mostly closed by 4pm. Otherwise, it's a charming place (inn & town) to visit. I'd like to come back in warmer weather and really enjoy the grounds. They served us the English breakfast and what a feast it was! Delicious!
My partner and I were out of towners for a wedding in Media and stumbled upon this gem of a place online. We arrived beaten up from traveling and instantly felt at home. Roland and Judy were both very welcoming and accommodating and gave us plenty of privacy. The house is breathtakingly beautiful (pics don't do it justice), it has a castle feel to it without being stuffy, it's quiet, you could tell they pay attention to detail, the shower in Otto's room was ah-mazing and the breakfast was delicious. We may go out of our way and stay there when we go back to Philly for a visit. Thank you for everything!
I had a wonderful stay and the B&B is conveniently located. I walked to dinner easily, and the Green Trolley into Center City stops right outside. The whole B&B is fabulously appointed with a sharp eye for period details. And the breakfast is great!
