This is our second time staying at the Widow. We stayed in the Privacy suite which was very nice. The rooms are very clean and Lynn is an excellent host. My wife and I are vegan, The host helped us find places we could eat and also made us an excellent breakfast each morning that we were there. Would recommend staying at the Widow any time you are in Frenchtown. It is located walking distance from frenchtown and other small towns for visiting.

We had a wonderful stay at The Widow McCrea House. The owners were very accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable about the history of the town and things to do during our stay. The Widow McCrea House was quaint, clean, and gave a very warm homey feel. I would definitely come again and would highly recommend to others.

Every detail is attended to-- so many beautiful pieces of furniture, the bed is soft as a cloud, the tub is candle-lit and the water stays warm for hours, the food is creative and delicious. We stayed in the Anne-James suite, which was lovely. Frenchtown is small, quaint and within walking distance, the D&R bike path as well. One pays a premium, but in the end, it's worth it. We never felt so relaxed.

This is a beautiful old house right near town. The breakfasts were creative and delicious and prepared by our host and hostess. And the rates are much more reasonable compared to nearby New Hope and Lambertville.

My girlfriend and I needed a getaway for the weekend due to ye olde stress of everyday life, so I chose to stay here as it was far enough removed from suburban and city life that it became a pleasant thought. There's wonderful nature in the area and a small, quiet, village-like atmosphere about the town that made it feel very welcoming and pleasant. Lynn was very easy to talk with and worked with us to get things set for our late arrival. As for the Widow McCrea House itself, we stayed in the Privacy Suite, which is part of the main house and has its own private entrance, which is convenient so you don't interfere with other residents if you come back late at night. The room was both spacious and small enough for our needs, and the bathroom was just lovely. The jacuzzi is a very pleasant size and worked wonders - the fact that it turns off at 11pm is not an issue as far as I'm concerned. We used it as a giant hottub for the most part as we did not use the jets much. The wine that came with the room was a very nice touch (good taste in wine, by the way). The breakfast provided in the morning was delicious, creative, and well-presented. Definitely starts the day off right. All in all, had a great, relaxing time. It was just what we needed.
