My husband and I went to Chimney Hill Estate Inn for a belated anniversary weekend. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty! The service was excellent, the food was delicious, the room was clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. We were impressed (and it takes a lot to impress my husband)! The shopping nearby was a relaxing way to spend the day and unwinding in front of the fire in the evening was also a special treat. From beginning to end, it was the perfect trip! We will definitely go back and I would not hesitate to recommend Chimney Hill Estate Inn to friends and family (actually, I already have)!

The Chimney Hill Estates exceeded my expectations along with the equally wonderful town it is located in, Lambertville, NJ. I highly recommend the B&B and a visit to the town.

We spent one night in room 3 of the converted barn. This is a very spacious room with jacuzzi, fireplace and bedroom in the loft reached by a spiral staircase. We recommended to the owners that they provide a simple instruction sheet on how to operate the gas fireplace and jacuzzi. We understand that the CRT TV's are being replaced with new hidef flat screen's. The Inn is in a beautiful country setting and yet is only mintutes away from great restaurants and shops in Lambertsville. Feeding the Alpaca's is fun and adds a lttle something extra to the stay. With just adding the mentioned improvements I would rate the Inn a five, especially when using a discount coupon.

Initially I was intimidated by all of the dos and don'ts on the website. I had a great stay though and they made booking with a voucher especially easy!

A get away for family members celebrating special birthdays. The stairs turned out to be fine for people used to one level living. The grounds were beautiful. The rooms, we saw, in the house were decorated with more traditional furniture. The Barn Suites were more colonialy. Colonial is not my favorite decor but they were comfortable and very spacious! The alpaca's were fun to feed and there is a great little hike to overlook the Delaware right outside the door. And, if you wanted to walk to town....you really can do that easily.

My cousin and I enjoyed our overnight stay at Chimney Hill Estates. The inn is charming. Rich, the owner and staff are accommodating and welcoming. We spent time conversing by the fireplace and sipping wine. Rich, the owner informed us about the history of the inn and the alpacas. The alpacas are adorable, loving animals. We enjoyed feeding the alpacas and going to the Unionville Winery. We had a fun-filled day at the Golden Nugget Flea Market, and shopping in New Hope and Lambertville. The suite that we stayed in was clean and neat, and the breakfast was delicious. We would definitely return to Chimney Hill Estates in the future.

Our room was lovely, with a fireplace and two comfortable oversized chairs with reading lights. The room was larger than I expected and had a view of a garden. The wi-fi didn't work as well in our room, but there were public spaces on the main floor-with comfortable chairs and fireplaces- where it did work. Staying here was like staying at a friend's old estate.

We had a great time, beautiful room, management was very accommodating as we're the Alpacas that reside there. Bunch of hams for the camera! Great restaurant that they recommended near by Anton's on the Swan in Lambertville.

This was our 4th stay at Chimney Hill Inn since having gotten married there 4 years ago...wonderful house, terrific people - gracious, accommodating it's like staying with family.

The breakfast was wonderful, staff was very accomodating, close to everything but far enough for quiet enjoyment. beautiful landscape and loved the alpacas! We stayed in a barn sweet which was the perfect choose for our stay. We definately would visit again. Had a great birthday getaway!

Beautiful grounds. Love, love, love alpacas so being close to them was awesome. The property was beautiful, well kept and clean. Would recommend it to others.

Recently, my husband and I decided to take a "retreat" week end in Lambertville. What a good idea! The weather cooperated beautifully. The grounds around Chimney Hill Estate and the Inn itself are peaceful, lovely and serene. There were plenty of interesting areas for us to walk, read, sit and share with each other! There is a great national park nearby and Lambertville and New Hope offer great shopping, entertainment, and restaurants when you are looking for something to do! Our homemade breakfasts each morning at the Inn were elegant and delicious! The alpacas are funny and adorable and added an interesting touch to our time there. We would highly recommend this Inn for its beauty, it's food and for the warm and friendly service we received there.

My boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary at Chimney Inn this past weekend, and we couldn't have picked a better spot. We used a Groupon, which included a wine tour, $50 certificate for dinner at a fantastic local restaurant, and of course, alpaca feed! At check in, I was greeted by the wonderful Deb, who immediately offered me fresh-baked Nutella cupcakes.I knew I was in the right place at that moment. Deb and Rich are caring, considerate innkeepers, who brought us a bottle of wine when we arrived and gave great advice on local outings. The main house is huge, and sports a large living room with a fireplace and four large leather couches. Perfect for conversation or just to relax and read. We stayed in barn suite #3, which I cannot recommend enough. It was a two floor room with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. It was rustic, true to its name, but plush and comfortable, too, and decorated with lovely antique touches. And it was enormous. The bedroom was upstairs, following a metal spiral staircase. Just bear in mind that the bathroom is on the first floor. We were right next to the alpacas, who were sweet and a lot of fun to feed and observe. The area was peaceful, with the occasional deer or rabbit spotted on the property. It was the perfect location to enjoy nature and tranquility, but still be very close to town. With respect to food, we enjoyed a fantastic home-cooked breakfast each morning (baked peaches and cherry French toast one morning and backed apples and sausage and quiche the next). The towns of Lambertville and New Hope are charming, with a lot to do (antique shops, wildflower reserve, flea market, to name a few). The restaurant we dined at (Anton's at the Swan) is located in a beautiful old home just a couple of miles from Chimney Inn. The food was excellent, as was the service. I can't say enough about Chimney Hill and would recommend it to anyone looking to get away to a fun and peaceful retreat.

Spectacukat stay, accommodations in the barn suite were superb! Highly recommended.!!

We stayed in Barn Suite #3. We had a great time in Lambertville, NJ, and New Hope, PA, on our 3 day getaway. The Bed and Breakfast itself was beautiful, quaint, and clean. Breakfast was delicious every morning, and the innkeepers went out of their way to ensure that we had a delightful stay. Highly recommended!

For 15 years I gave been staying at this estate. It's like a second home for. You will love the home feel, the atmosphere and the feeling pulling up. My favorite B&B.

What a wonderful, relaxing stay at Chimney Hill. The Inn keepers were very friendly and helpful. The alpacas were fun. The food was delicious. The entire Inn was spotlessly clean. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed here for our 10th anniversary, and had a lovely time. It is walking distance to Lambertville/New Hope if you are unafraid of tackling the big hill and the innkeepers were very friendly but not intrusive. Breakfast was fantastic and the llamas were a fun addition.
5 on August 26, 2013
Beautiful Historic Inn. Beautiful grounds,great rooms and breakfasts. Very helpful staff. Will recommend for a wonderful retreat

I think they write their own reviews. Don't waste your money. Go to the woolverton or the inn at bowman's hill.

Mechanical problems in room-air conditioning did not work and toilet overflowed. 2 person Jacuzzi shower did not function properly. No selection for breakfast and food was below average in quality. Location is a 10. But, everything else about the proeprty is a negative. My husband and I will never return.
5 on August 18, 2013
My husband and I did a last minute trip over the weekend and they were able to accommodate us for just one night which was great. We had a lovely stay. The bed was comfortable and decoration was old school exquisite. We also enjoyed feeding the alpacas. That certainly is quite a nice treat from any regular bed and breakfast. The hosts were delightful and made us feel comfortable. All in , we had a very enjoyable stay and glad we chose Chimney Hill. Will definitely stay there again.

Under 2 hrs from NY, The last 1/8-1/4 mile arriving at this Inn is like a passage to another place and time.... Barely ½ & 1 mile respectively from the galleries, shops, restaurants of Lambertville and New hope, PA..it feels like you are many miles away in the rural, tranquil and wonderful countryside. Quaint, nicely appointed main and stone rooms greet you in the main house. The staff is wonderful and available to answer questions offer suggestions about things to do and places to go. Room had a soft bed, with nice sheets, pillows and country style comforters, AC, closet a couple of chairs and a private bathroom/shower (across the hall). The soap, shampoo and conditioner were a step above the basic hotel motel soaps and it felt special. Rooms are serviced daily unless otherwise requested. Excellent free WiFi . They also have other accommodations which are separate from the main house. The breakfast served from 9-10 (I was there for a work related trip) but on vacation not having to get up at the crack of dawn to have breakfast is great Very good coffee, OJ, and chilled water are self serve in the colonial dining room, the breakfast is served in 2 courses at your table. The grounds are spacious &have a unique added attraction: Alpacas and llamas ...If you have not seen one you are in for a treat and a surprise. We enjoyed our time there and the restaurants in the nearby twin-towns have every kind of fare at every price range. Coming back at night was always an easy drive and going up the hill and the last 1/8 mile was always a wonderful world away. The owners and the Inn keeper were delightful and warmly welcoming. We enjoyed at times sharing conversation with them, with other guests and still having time to ourselves. It is always amazing how close this is to NY and yet how it is a world away. The Chimney hill estates Inn while stationary-delivers...It delivers the guests a relaxing get away and step out of time.
5 on August 14, 2013
My husband and I spent 3 nights 4 days at the Chimney Hill Estate, and goodness we didn't realize how much we needed a get away until we were there. This place was superb, the stone room was our favorite room to relax in and read our books. The Inn Keeper Deb, was beyond hospitable and quite the little Martha stewart, we had an amazing breakfast every morning. I also have gluten allergies and she worked around my allergies just so very accommodating. The historic grounds of the actual Inn really caught my husbands attention he loved it there. We honestly did not want to leave we will be back for sure hopefully in the winter, it was such a nice relaxing little stay... and let me know forget to mention the shops at Lambertsville NJ were perfect I love artsy areas and antiquing and I found some amazing finds. The Winery that Chimney hill recommended was delicious we ended up purchase 6 bottles of wine and all of the restaurants they recommended were to die for. All in all we had an EXCELLENT stay.
5 on August 14, 2013
Innkeepers were gracious and available. Breakfast was served timely and hot. Room was spacious and clean as well as the bathroom. Grounds were beautfilly kept and pleasant to walk around or sit by the pretty garden. There is plenty to do and see around Lambertville and New Hope. We had a lovely time and would recommend to anyone and will have a return stay!!
4.2 on August 09, 2013
A charming, quaint and relaxing little hideaway, and the alpacas added to the enjoyment. Hospitality was wonderful! I can't wait to go back again!!
5 on August 01, 2013
Easily the warmest, coziest B&B I've ever been to. I could have moved in and become a full time resident. We will stay here again for sure!
4.2 on July 28, 2013
My fiance got us the Groupon for a two night stay including a dining gift certificate for my birthday and we had a wonderful time! We were unexpectedly upgraded to a Barnyard suite with a wonderful Jacuzzi and cozy lofted bedroom. The staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious, and we enjoyed feeding the alpacas. The Groupon included dining at nearby Anton's which was well worth it. (Definitely stop by their bar as well) I'm not sure if we would stay here without the Groupon as it is a little pricey.

We were looking for a place to stay overnight for the Forth of July near New Hope, and decided to try Chimney Hill. It turned out to be a good choice. Beautiful grounds and rooms, and the right distance to be a nice evening walk into town (a little over a mile), but far enough that it was quiet and peaceful. The included breakfast was excellent. The next time we stay over near New Hope we'll stay here again.

We had a good laugh when we went out to feed the Alpacas & 1 of them spit food all over me—but we were warned by the innkeepers, so we had no one to blame but ourselves! We stayed in the Hunt Room, which was really lovely, large & light. One warning--the bed is very high off the ground--if you're short, you will have to take a running leap to get onto it. Also the bathroom is in the hallway outside of the room, with no AC-it was VERY hot! But I did my hair & makeup in the bedroom so it wasn't awful. The hosts were lovely, as were the house’s architecture & furnishings. There was always a freshly baked snack, lemonade, etc. & a mini pharmacy in the pantry. Breakfast was DELICIOUS! We are vegetarians & had no problem getting a non-meat breakfast, although we did tell them well in advance. It was all carbs; some fresh fruit would have been nice as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would definitely return here again. We took the minor disappointments in stride because we have stayed in many B&Bs & know to expect quirks. The most important things are pleasant inn-keepers, clean rooms & bathrooms & a good breakfast--Chimney Hill has them all. Something I overheard during breakfast: a table near us was talking to 1 of the inn-keepers about how they had locked themselves out the night before because they couldn't remember the door code. They had also tripped the circuit-breaker 5 times the day before because they had the AC running with a blow dryer, curling iron, etc. (very old house!). They were laughing about the experience (& the door situation was totally their own fault), but Debbie, the inn-keeper, said that she felt so bad about their troubles that she upgraded them to a barn suite for the rest of their stay, sent them a bottle of wine, & gave them a $100 credit toward their next stay--& they were there are on a GROUPON! Now that is someone who knows how to take care of guests!

I booked a room last minute at Chimney Hill, so I chose between the room options that were left. I probably would've picked a different room had I planned this getaway earlier, but even so, when I walked into my room (the Hunt Room) it was better - bigger, decorated with more detail- even than I had anticipated from the online picture! The grounds were expansive and it was relaxing just to bring a book and sit under a tree, and also to watch the Alpacas from a bench nearby. My quibbles: Although I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, I still had a feeling that I could've found somewhere comparable for cheaper (a room with a non-attached bathroom, as in, I had to walk outside the hall to get there, was $325 a night, and although there was a pool at another inn a short distance away, there was none on site). Service was good but since I slept till noon one of the mornings, housekeeping never returned to my room to make it up. It was a great place to go to do my own thing, but not one where I felt "pampered" and "fawned over." However, that was ok with me.
5 on July 09, 2013
Steve and Mia from Boston. Enjoyed the room which was homey, clean and roomy. The best part was the breakfast and the hospitality from Richard and Terry. They are the friendliest people we have ever met! Felt like old friends by the time we left.
4.8 on July 01, 2013
Loved our stay at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. Terry and Richard were so gracious and truly made our stay memorable.I had just finished 6 months of chemo and needed a truly restful stay and this was it. Fantastic B&B and the alpaca farm was a bonus. Good location, great food and wonderful hosts. Couldn't ask for better! Thank you! Kris & Steve
4.6 on June 18, 2013
Lovely buildings and grounds ... room charmingly decorated, sizable and clean ... wonderfully prepared and presented gourmet breakfast ... charming host and hostess focused on guest service ... the only downside, a mere weekend not enough to fully enjoy!
4.2 on June 17, 2013
Charming, warm, peaceful. Nice grounds, friendly service plus Alpacas you get to feed! Stayed in one of the smaller rooms in the main house which was quite big enough for two. Could have used one strong light - room was a bit dark.
4.2 on June 14, 2013
Good choice to stay in the Barn. None of the rooms in the Estate House have TV and some of them have their bathroom in the hallway. Good deal,if use Groupon. Otherwise would be over-priced. Breakfast was awesome. Terry and Rich are very nice. Alpaca's are very cute and fun to feed. Lambertville and New Hope are cool little towns. Love Peddler's Village. Anton at the Swan was excellant. $ 50.00 Groupon voucher covered dinner. One thing I didnt like about the room was that there was a sheer curtain over the sliding door in the bedroom. I doubt anyone would try to look in, but would prefer more privacy and darkening in the morning. Also, bring your own pillow, cause theirs are a little hard for my liking. Bed was comfy. Bubbler tub was comfy too.
Thank you for your comments- Actually the Estate House offers a bit of history since it is an 1820 and 1927 hoem. Many guests really enjoy no television ( other bring their tablet if they are in need of TV) and do not mind the bathroom in the out of room experience. After all , this is a historic estate and it's all part of the bigger experience :-)
4.4 on May 20, 2013
My husband and I made the right choice to celebrate our 20th Anniversary with you! The Inn and grounds are just lovely...the food was delicious...we enjoyed the quiet and comfort of the rooms throughout the inn...and despite the rain we had a great time in town (Lambertville & New Hope) not to mention our alpaca encounter! John and I will certainly be back!
Thanks! You can't stop folks from haveing a good time- even the rain can't do that! Especially when you are still in love after 20 years! Hope you can come back soon!

We stayed at Chimney Hill during the first week in May and had a wonderful stay. I originally booked the Hunter Room but when we got to the Inn Terry (Innkeeper) offer The Tapestry Room instead because the bathroom was inside the room (Hunter Room bathroom is outside room). Tapestry Room is located in the original part of the house so WiFi in the room didn't work however we didn't have any problems using it in the main floor. Our room was very clean and so was the rest of the house, we were the only couple staying in the main house with three other couples in the barn. We walked over to see the animals on the property and got awesome pictures of them. Next day we were greeted by Terry, gave us the breakfast menu lorraine quiche bacon coffee cake fruit coffee juice, what an awesome breakfast!! Terry came by to chat, gave us tips on where to go what to do and also shared with me her awesome coffee cake recipe. Thank you Terry for a lovely stay and sharing your recipe with me.
It was so very nice to meet you too. And I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay- please make time and come back for another relaxing getaway soon!

We stayed at the Chimney Hill Inn the weekend of June 3 - 5 and it was fantastic. Terry, the hostess, was simply amazing. It is clear that she loves her work and she is very good at what she does. The house was very comfortable. We spend an evening having wine in the Stone Room. The breakfast area was very nice and the food was amazing. We had a great time feeding the Alpacas. The Inn seems to be in a remote location - but in truth we were less than a mile from downtown Lambertville and just across the bridge is New Hope. Both of the small towns feature plenty of great places to eat and hang out. We also visited a few of the local wineries, the Living History Farm, the flea market, and the Wildflower Preserve. A truely fantastic place to spend some time.
Wow! Thanks for thinking I am AMAZING! That is very, very sweet- but I do what I do cause I really enjoy you all! I appreciate you kind words.

Chimney Hill Estate Inn is simply perfect in every way. We've visited a few times, and found it to be a very relaxing place to take a break. Away from the rigors of life in the twenty-first century, we were able to enjoy beautiful rooms, a beautifully landscaped property, sweet alpacas, and delicious home cooking.
4.8 on April 10, 2013
We stayed here 3/72-3/29 as a groupon package. It exceeded all expectations. It was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend to anyone. We stayed in Barn Suite 3 and it was amazing. Although we also had the TV mysteriously go on in the middle of the night! Terry was an amazing host! Definitly going back!! Love the Alpacas and everything else about this place!!
5 on April 07, 2013
Great inn keepers, adorable alpacas, fine dining, fun antiqueing
4.8 on April 05, 2013
I had made a reservation for our anniversary. When my husband got sick a few days before, I asked if we could postpone our stay. Terry graciously moved our date back as requested. It turned out that we were the only ones there on the new date, but we never felt unwelcomed. The inn is charming and the rooms are well-appointed. There is no TV in either the rooms or the common areas, which is a nice escape from the world. However, the dim lighting makes it difficult to read. The alpacas are fun. We enjoyed our stay.
4.6 on April 01, 2013
I originally purchased a Groupon to stay at this Lambertville B&B. Unfortunately the promotional timeframe expired, but we were able to use the fee toward a one night stay. We stayed in Barn Room #1. Our first impression was full of awe. The atmosphere is a well kept old barn estate. The main house which is the common area is your traditional exposed beam, plank flooring, rock wall house. Just spectacular. The decor is charming, welcoming and romantic. Meticulous and beautiful. The included breakfast was delicious. The Innkeeper Terry completes the package with a warmth and sincerity of your favorite cousin. The barn room itself was very clean, and comfortable. Aside from the 2-person sitting couch being uncomfortable and the TV randomly blaring channel 4 at 3:30am (ghost???), it was a great place to stay. I initially felt the price was a little steep but would highly recommend this B&B if they are up your alley.
5 on March 28, 2013
We stayed in Barn Suite #2. We had a great time in Lambertville, NJ, and New Hope, PA, on our 3 day getaway. The Bed and Breakfast itself was beautiful, quaint, and clean. Breakfast was delicious every morning, and the innkeepers went out of their way to ensure that we had a delightful stay. Highly recommended!
5 on March 22, 2013
My boyfriend and I stayed here as a romantic getaway before a deployment and had the most wonderful time. Terry and Rich were wonderful hosts, and all the guests were very warm and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious, the service was great, and the alpacas added a fun aspect to our trip. Would definitely come back!
4.2 on March 15, 2013
Excellent breakfast. Very nice room. The alpacas on the farm are a nice addition. We arrived after 6 on a Saturday and the office was closed but we'd received a phone call a few hours earlier letting us know and telling us where our room key would be. It would have been nice to stay a little longer and unfortunately Saturday night was daylight savings so we lost another hour. It would have been nice if breakfast was served until a little later - they stop serving at 9:45 AM - only 8:30-9:45. I don't believe that information was on the website any place. Nor that you needed to arrive by 5:30 to have an actual person greet you. But I'd go back - very nice place.
5 on March 04, 2013
This was our second time staying at The Chimney Hill Inn and again we were amazed at what a wonderful retreat this Inn is...Terry is an amazing host and makes you feel right at home. The ambience of the entire property is amazingly comfortable, inviting, with nicely decorated rooms that make you feel right at home! Also, Terry's breakfast menu's are always delicious and inspiring...good food and lots of it! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING OUR SHORT WEEKEND TRIP FEEL LIKE A LONG AND RELAXING GET AWAY!!! WE WILL BE BACK SOON.... Andrea & Gerard

Terry and Rich were wonderful! Room was comfortable and clean, breakfasts were special. Enjoyed the fireside conversations with other guests and Rich shared some very amusing stories. No need for a television in this "make you feel at home" inn.

We had such a lovely stay in this beautiful inn. We will be back!

My wife and I just returned from a thoroughly delightful three-day stay at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. We loved our room (The Library) with a super-comfortable four-poster with canopy, window exposure on three sides, a fireplace, and two wing-backed chairs fireside for reading and talking and sipping during these winter days. Terry and Rick are superb innkeepers, the breakfasts are first-rate, the fellow guests so convivial that two other couples eventually joined our tables-for-two at breakfast for a sextet conversation and then we all decided to dine together than night, which we did in one of Lambertville's many excellent restaurants. We'll return to Chimney Hill Estate Inn soon and often!
4.4 on February 02, 2013
The accommodations were lovely and the breakfasts were scrumptious! We stayed on a great package and enjoyed unwinding at this gracious inn. No TVs in the main house lends to peace, quiet, and actual conversation! We loved getting to know the guests and the alpacas!

The barn suites were a bit dated, but charming. The service was fabulous as were the breakfasts. I would definitely return!

Owners made us feel like family. We would have liked to have a better check in. We were a bit confused. After we checked in, we were family. Owners were very concerned that we were enjoying our time in their care. We did. Thank you, Chimminy Hill. Enjoyed meeting all of you.

Spent a very relaxing weekend at the Chimney Hill Estate ... Staff was wonderful ... extremely accommodating .. Had a wonderful romantic weekend ... definitely will visit again!
4.4 on January 02, 2013
Chimney Hill Estate is located in rural New Jersey. The scenery was beautiful especially in the snow! Our package included dinner certificate at Anton's at the Swan and wine tasting and winery tour at Unionville Winery. The dinner at Anton's was fabulous.. dinner was delicious and the service was impeccable. We loved the fact that the owner/chef cooks his meals using local ingredients. The experience at the winery was so much fun. We learned alot about growing grapes and making wine. We'd love to return in the warmer weather to enjoy the countryside.

We had a great time at the Chimney Hill Estate. Terry & Carol see to it that all of the guests are happy . Nice touches like home baked cookies in the kitchen any time of the day. The Main House was beautifully decorated for the holidays

I can't thank the gracious staff at Chimney hill enough for their attentiveness. I needed a room at the last minute for my parents, and they worked with us to accommodate. The breakfast was superb, and the hostess made time to give us information about the history of the estate. The alpacas were darling, and definitely a highlight.
4.8 on December 19, 2012
We loved the entire experience of staying at Chimney Hill Estate...from the jacuzzi tub and romantic fireplace in our room to the extremely yummy breakfast we had in the Manor home. The owners were so gracious and their actions and friendliness prove just how much they really love what they do and enjoy people. The alpacas were adorable! Highly recommend this B&B even if just for a one-night getaway!

We stayed for two nights in a loft cabin. It was charming. The staff made you feel at home and cooked us a wonderful breakfast each morning. We enjoyed feeding the Alpacas and gallivanting through the nearby towns. October was a perfect time to go as the leaves were changing and it was beauitful! We were impressed with everyone we spoke to include staff at Chimney Hill Estate Inn, Marsha Browns, The Black Swan, Lambertville Inn Station and the shop keepers at Lahoska. Everyone was extremely friendly, all our meals were wonderful and it was a lovely weekend. I highly recommend taking a romantic getaway here or bring your children. This trip can be what you make of it. Enjoy!
Thank you for your review! We really want for all our guests to enjoy the experience of Chimney Hill Estate and local jewels of New Hope and Lambertville as you did. Its a great feeling to know that we are doing a nice job- we do work very hard to please you. Please come again soon! Thank you, Terry

Room was very tight, but the price was reasonable. It was the first B&B my Mom (83yrs old) stayed in and was so impressed and enjoyed herself and would like to go back. Carolee

This is a beautiful property, great room and freindly people. I did note realize that a "private" bathroom is not necessarily en-suite. It is just not shared with others. That is my only complaint otherwise excellent. Feeding the alpacas was fun. Anton's at the Swan was romantic
3.8 on October 27, 2012
Cozy suite. Beautiful backdrop. Well maintained. But could use some modern updates
Thank you for your comments. Chimney Hill Estate is nearly 200 years old- we really plan to keep it as close to its original image as possible. There are many lodging locations nearby offering modern amenities to choose from. We wish to continue offering this property whith the historic and more primative features as many of our guests actually do choose us for this reason. Thank you again for your visit!

My wife and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. It was our last stop on a 17 day, 10800 km trip though 26 states in the USA. What a warm and relaxing experience it was in a beautiful old town location. The rooms were beautiful and nicely decorated. We especially liked the jacuzzi tub and shower, 2-sided fireplace and loft bedroom. The inn is situated in a nice quiet, cozy area with alpacas and llamas on the farm. Thank you for this enjoyable experience and we are very likely to return. My only piece of advise is to invest in new bed pillows. Brianna and Anthony
Thank you! We appreciate your input and we hope that you will come again when visiting the USA. Terry

I enjoyed the B&B overall. It was a very nice setting. The room didn't have an attached bathroom and the last day of our stay we didn't get any clean towels. We had to use the robe to dry with. The breakfast awas very good. The owners were very nice. It was fun feeding the Alpacas.

I love everything about chimney hill estate inn. We got a groupon deal for 2 nights. We stay in the Garden Room for our 2nd anniversary. Great room, friendly staff, very clean, breakfast is really good. I recommend this for anybody who is looking for a short get away!
4.6 on October 18, 2012
Stayed at Chimney Hill Inn last weekend for a one night romantic getaway and loved it. The inn keeper Eric was amazing, friendly and helpful. The room, Barn Suite #3, was exactly what we wanted. It was spotless and clean. The breakfast was amazing. The grounds are beautiful. It's in close proximity to two nice little towns (Lambertville, NJ & New Hope, PA) that have good food and some interesting shops to visit. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends. Our only suggestion is to install some curtains or blinds on the windows. We felt like we were giving all the others guests a show.
October is an amazing time for a visit to Lambertville and New Hope- so glad you enjoyed the Barn Suite- they are very accomidating. We also appreciate your input and hope you will come back for another stay with us soon. Warm Regards, Terry

I spent one night here and it was one of the best travel experiences I have ever had. The proprietors were extremely nice, including when we called them at 9 PM because we couldn't get into our room (we were turning the key the wrong way). In addition we received a free upgrade on our room for no reason at all. The bed was fantastic and everything was well maintained and clean. The food was very good and served in generous proportions. Finally the alpacas were a great addition to the day. Remember to ask for some alpaca food if you want to get up close to them.
Thank you- thank you! We try very hard and we are usually available to help in the later evenings as you experienced. We pride ourselves in offering comfort and hospitaltiy to the traveler and feel blsesed that you had a nice expreience. Please come again for another visit soon. Terry

This place was very nice. The inn keeper was very helpful. We had stayed in Lamberville NJ before so we knew where we wanted to go. But the inn keeper gave us new ideas. She told us about the Market in the area and that was great! The B&B itself was very clean and quiet and safe. The bed was comfortable but high. Breakfast was delicious and filling. The common areas were comfortable with two fire places. One fireplace was a gas burning fire place and the other was a wood burning fireplace. The guests were friendly too.
Glad you enjoyed the new ideas we offred. Thank you for your stay and your compliments too! Please come back again for another visit. Terry

This was our weekend getaway from our kids...and we had an amazing time at Chimney Hill Estate B&B and would do it again without a doubt!!! The innkeepers, staff, atmosphere, food and location....you couldn't have asked for better!!! We would and will recommend this B&B to everyone we know!!! Thank you for a wonderful weekend:)
You are very Welcome! Thank you for your visit and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Best Wishes, Terry

We had a groupon for this Bed and Breakfast and were so glad we took advantage of it. Our package included a 2 night stay, wine tasting at a local winery, a voucher for a restaurant called "Anton at the Swan" and a complimentary bottle of wine. In addition, the innkeeper raises alpaccas and we got to feed them. That was an experience. The inn was warm and cozy. The rooms we had were lovely and very clean. Our innkeeper gave us a map and pointed out local places of interest. We went to dinner the first night on her recommendation and were very pleased with the choice. The second night we had dinner at "Antons at the Swan". This place was 5 star. We were very impressed. The breakfasts we had at the inn were fabulous. The french toast was amazing. The dining area was quaint and cozy. I would recommend this inn to anyone looking for a charming, relaxing stay.

This was our second year and we will definitely go back again next year. Even thinking about planning our wedding there..

We had an overnight stay at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. It was a beautiful establishment. Everyone was upbeat and friendly. Particularly enjoyed talking with the owners Rich and Terry who were glad to chat.
Thank you for your sweet comments- we enjoyed talking withyou as well. It not oftern we get to just hang with our guests- so the pleasure was ours! Thank you, Terry and Rich
3.4 on September 25, 2012
Chimney Hill is a beautiful, historic stone B&B. I loved the sitting room with it's cozy fireplace, the friendly llamas and the hearty breakfast. Our room was clean, quiet and elegant. Eric was very helpful.
We appreciate your review of our estate - it is so important to hear from your prespetive. We will continue doing all we can to creat a warm and inviting home. Terry
5 on September 24, 2012
Room (Tapestry) was very comfortable and food was terrific. Met and shared breakfast with new friends. Staff was friendly and always ready to make our visit enjoyable. Loved the alpacas!
Our Alpacas love you too! Thank you Terry
4.4 on September 24, 2012
Not your average B and B but more of a great inn allowing easy access to all to do in the area. The set up allowed you to enjoy the other guest as little or as much as you wanted. Staff was welcoming but did not hover over you. Great Getaway!
3.6 on September 24, 2012
Chimney Hill Estate Inn was a nice place to go for a nice little getaway. The home was charming, but the outside grounds and the building were in need of some TLC. The service was exceptional and they are great at thinking of everything you might need to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The location was nice and close to town, just a quick drive. We stayed in the Barn suite, which was clean and spacious, but the spiral stairs are a little intimidating when you have to use the bathroom during the night. I would recommend Chimney Hill Estate to a friend.
So glad you had a wonderful experience - it is a great estate to visit - filled with charm and history. We hope to see you again very soon. Terry
5 on September 22, 2012
Relaxing, friendly. in touch with nature! You bet we will share this information with friends and family!
We will be looking for another visit from you soon! Thanks
5 on September 22, 2012
Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The main house is warm and inviting, with a large living room and another sitting room with ample sofas and a wood burning fireplace. We loved the breakfast served each morning in the main house dining room. The alpacas were an extra bonus!
4.2 on September 19, 2012
We loved staying at the Chimney Inn B&B. We found this place through a Groupon offer. The offer not only included a reduced rate for the room but also a significant discount at one of the best restaurants in town (Anton's at the Swam) a free bottle of wine and a free wine tasting at a local winery. The staff were very nice and attentive. The Alpacas were a fun touch.
4.6 on September 19, 2012
Our weekend stay was fabulous. Our room was nicely appointed with a spacious bathroom. Both breakfasts were delicious - strata and french toast. We would love to schedule a family vacation there as there is much to do in the surrounding area.
4.8 on September 18, 2012
This was our first visit to Lambertville and we loved the area. Everyone was so friendly and the staff at Chimney Hill Estates could not have been more accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and the home baked cookies and lemonade in the afternoon was a very nice treat. We would definitely recommend a visit to this bed & breakfast.
5 on September 17, 2012
The room was cozy and very clean. The food was very good and very nicely presented. The manager was a jack-of-all-trades and was working all day long on pleasing his guests and cooking the breakfasts and taking care of the inn. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay.
4.4 on September 12, 2012
My overnight stay was delightful. The staff was there whenever I needed but never made us feel as if they were hovering. The building is beautifully appointed and the breakfast was enough to win a return visit. Eric was terrific! LOVE the alpacas.
3.2 on September 03, 2012
The inn is situated in a lovely rural/farm setting. The public areas are small but beautiful. The room in which we stayed was charming and quaint but the room air conditioner was noisy and made for a bad night's sleep. That's the only reason I rated the rooms "ok but below average". The Inn is located away from the downtown area of Lambertville so you have to drive but I do not find that a negative. I would gladly trade the distance from town for the peace, quite and beauty of the countryside.
4.6 on September 03, 2012
Enjoyed the stay and people we met. The only thing negative was that our room did not have a TV. This would have been a problem if we had a day where it rained and staying in the room all day would have not been good. This should be explained when booking the room, then I would have taken a portable dvd player along.
4.2 on September 03, 2012
beautiful place and service beyond compare but a few technical difficulties - sauna didn't work and back door didn't lock. Because of problems with the well there was no water in the room our second morning there! Staff was very gracious and helpful but vey inconvenient! They promised a rebate but it did no t happen.
3.6 on September 03, 2012
A very short ride downtown Lambertville, this inn is in a beautiful high location. The llamas are funny. Eric was most helpful on check-in and a great host at breakfast. Breakfasts were simply yummy. The dining room and guest lounge are welcoming and comfortable. The Barn Suite I room in which I stayed was clean but needed spiffing up. Shower plumbing needed to be attended to. The A/C unit blows directly on the bed. There is no light in the suite suitable for reading. It was a mixed experience - I would go again, but request a room in the inn itself.
4.6 on September 02, 2012
My husband and I enjoyed are two day visit to CHE in Lambertville NJ. There was so much to do in the area but it was hard to leave our suite.....Barn Suite #1. We fed the llamas, ate beautiful breakfasts and were able to eat in our suite (brought some food along) but dined in Lambertville and saw a play at the beautifully renovated Bucks Co. Playhouse. We won't forget Terry (the owner) and the time that she spent with us and Eric and his fine staff.. We met so many nice folks and will keep in touch with them!
5 on September 01, 2012
We loved chimney Hill and will return for sure. the decor was great and the entire experience was far above our expectations. The breakfast is great and dining room is beautiful. Anne and frank O'Brien
4.8 on August 29, 2012
The owner Terry was lovely and interesting to speak with. The breakfasts were out of this world.
5 on August 29, 2012
It was just a beautiful weekend. The food was out of this world. Very clean. We forgot something in the dining room and they called us to let us know. The Inn keepers were very nice also. The alpacas were cute and fun to feed I would go there again. Jeanne and Gina
4.8 on August 28, 2012
Beautiful Bucks County style manor house on a lush landscaped estate. Quiet and peaceful environment. Dining room is absolutely charming with a lovely tablescape and delicious and filling breakfasts. Spacious bedroom, lovely decor with the only downside being our private bathroom had to be accessed from the hall. (bit of an inconvenience in the middle of the night.) Staff extremely friendly . Would definitely stay there again.
4.6 on August 27, 2012
We had a wonderful stay at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. The place is charming and the grounds are just lovely. The icing on the cake is feeding the alpacas. What beautiful and friendly animals! The Inn is very close to the center of Lambertsville so it is very conveniently located. There is so much to do and see in the area. The Inn staff was so courteous and helpful. They really want to make their guests comfortable.
4.2 on August 27, 2012
It was a pleasant area, near lots of shops and eateries. A comfortable lviing room area in a comon area of the buildingn to share with other guests.
4.8 on August 27, 2012
Staff members were very pleasant and helpful. All the rooms are beautiful and well maintained. Breakfast was excellant. The only thing that was disappointing was we did not have a TV in our room but WiFi was available and so we brought dvds and a laptop and had a great time. I would recommend Chimney Hill to anyone.
5 on August 27, 2012
We've stayed here every year for the last 6 years! We even got engaged there! Great b&b!
5 on August 26, 2012
Our over night stay was very relaxing and the owner/operator was extremely pleasant and made us feel at home.
5 on August 20, 2012
We met long term NJ friends at Chimney Hill for a two day stay. We haven't been to Lambertville in more than 20 years. Chimney Hill was the perfect place to stay and get away from the traffic and shopping. Our room was beautiful, really beautiful and super clean. Our hosts couldn't do any more than they did to make our stay a wonderful experience. The venue and the people make me want to give our children a weekend at Chimney Hill. I give Chimney Hill a BIG thumbs UP.
4.8 on August 19, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were spacious and the loft bedroom location let us sleep undisturbed by the morning light. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff was extremely gracious. We enjoyed feeding the alpacas on the grounds. The inn's location was perfect. You had a country environment and a close drive to restaurants, shops, and antique markets.
4.2 on August 19, 2012
It was amazing to open our barn suite door in the morning and see the alpacas. The location was great. Rooms were what I would expect in a bed and breakfast. Breakfast was delicious, especially the "heavenly bananas". The service and friendliness couldn't be beat; Eric was exceptional. Chimney Hill is definitely a place I would come back to.
4.2 on August 19, 2012
We spent 2 wonderful nights in the Hunt Room at Chimney Hill. Everything was wonderful from the moment we walked through the front door. Terry couldn't have been more helpful or gracious. Our room was beautiful and spacious. We were absolutely blown away by the delicious breakfasts we were served and that the dining room was completely full with other guests each morning. The inn was so quiet we actually thought we were the only ones staying there the first night, until SURPRISE, all the other nice people we met at breakfast! The alpacas and llamas are cute, it was fun to feed them and if we are ever in the area again, which we hope to be, we will not look anywhere else for accomodations. Chimney Hill is it for us! Thank You Terry for providing such a beautiful and delicious place to stay!
5 on August 19, 2012
This is a great choice for a quiet get-away. The surrounding area is rich with history and offers something for every taste on both sides of the Delaware river: be it a walk along the Delaware-Raritan canal, shopping the many boutiques or exploring the riches of the numerous antique shops and restaurants.

We truly enjoyed our mid-week stay at Chimney Hill. We stayed in the Main House, which has a lovely and comfortable living room and a nice den. We did not hang around the Inn that much but if we were there with friends I could see us hanging out in the den a bit, enjoying a bottle of wine. The property is very nice and well maintained, and you can visit/feed the alpacas with a short walk to the back of the property. They were a fun bonus. The Inn is in a remote setting but it is just a very short drive to downtown Lambertville and New Hope, with plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, and people-watching to enjoy. Eric, the innkeeper while we were there, was very welcoming, friendly, helpful, and available. Our room (Tapestry) was very spacious and well appointed. The air conditioning is a wall unit, which worked just fine. The only downside was the shower, which is in the claw-foot tub. The shower-head was low, as was the ceiling, so this was a small challenge. Not a big deal for us, as we are average height and nimble, but could be a bit of an issue for very tall people or those who have trouble moving with ease. We had a great time and would definitely return. Note: We had a Groupon for our stay, so that is why I did not rate "value".

The staff is excellent and the food is outrageous.....only one con...no tv so pack your laptop!
4.0 on August 13, 2012
Like many of the guests at this time of the year we used a voucher to stay two nights in the Barn Suite #3. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet with quaint decorative accents. Eric was very pleasant and sociable at check-in as well in the mornings for terrific breakfasts. The grounds were well kept and the llama and alpacas were fun to watch and feed. Minor issues with the room including the bathroom faucet almost coming off its base, shower doors out of track, and light out in shower. Those issues should have been noticed by the cleaning person and fixed before the next client. What was lacking was the presence of a full time innkeeper. No one should have to call to get information on the local sights or find a box of tissues.
3.8 on August 08, 2012
What a wonderful weekend my husband and I had here. Get a barn suite room if you want privacy. It located outside of the main house and is very quiet. Lots of room and a 2 person jacuzzi and fireplace in your room!
3.0 on August 08, 2012
Breakfast was good and we had a nice room. The inn is very quiet and still close to town. The water was off one night and we could not shower. That was our only problem, the rest of our stay was great.
3.6 on August 06, 2012
Received a groupon for this 2 night stay. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at how welcoming and comfortable this estate was. Although the bathrooms in the mainhouse were not in the same room, we were on the 2nd floor, so it was not an issue but privacy was definalteyt lacking for the couple on the first floor who had to go into the hall to shower, use the bathroom.... The alpacas are beautiful, friendly but have a tendency to sneeze all over you! Bring a good book as there is no TV anywhere on the property.
4.8 on August 01, 2012
We absolutely loved our stay at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn. Our innkeeper Eric couldn't have been any more nicer and helpful. Our room, Library Room, was beautifully appointed and comfortable. We would definitely like to come back in the cooler weather to take advantage of the fireplace in the room.
5 on July 31, 2012
My wife and I found Chimney Hill on a Groupon and took a chance. We were delighted. The service was attentive, especially accomdating my dietary needs (diabetes); the local information they provided was very helpful and we could not have been more pleased.
3.8 on July 30, 2012
Had a great couple of days at Chimeny Hill. Terry and her staff were very very hospitable. Breakfasts were delicious. Accomodations were very charming. Alpacas is a nice addition to the country setting. Thanks Terry .
4.4 on July 30, 2012
The Inn is lovely. Do be careful when booking your room as there may be steps both leading up to the room and then again to get to the sleeping loft. Breakfast is a short walk from the Barn rooms but is on gravel and may be a problem for those with mobility issues. The Inn and the grounds are beautiful and would be perfect for a winter getaway.
4.8 on July 29, 2012
We recently returned from a two day Groupon stay -- great value! Our hostess, Terry, was very genial and accommodating; we took far too much advantage of the afternoon cookies and lemonade, and feeding the alpacas was a totally delightful experience! We stayed in the Library room on the first floor which was spacious and charming. Our favorite spot was the sunken living room -- stone walls and leather couches -- where we spent a lot of time just reading and relaxing. The other guests were very pleasant and chatty, but not overly so. Enjoyed the towns of New Hope and Lambbertville; sufficiently quirky to hold our attention. The food at Anton's was definitely gourmet and delicious. We will return! Jan and Bob
4.6 on July 25, 2012
We enjoyed barn suite 4 and found it quiet, relaxing with jacuzzi and other amenities. While clean, detailed dusting is needed. The bed was comfortable but seemed more full than queen. Eric, the office host and on-site manager was polite, informative and receptive. Both breakfasts on sat and sun were delicious. Being our first visit to the Lambertville/New Hope area, we loved the proximity to our inn. The Groupon deal is the reason we chose this inn and it was a best value. The Anton's at the Swan voucher was well paired and a chef quality dining experience. Two improvements I ask the owner to consider are tv upgrades to small flat screens and cable service at HD level and the second is an ice machine bigger than the breadbox one in the dining room. Thank you, Terry, for your smart business sense to use Groupon and we definitely will return.
3.4 on July 25, 2012
We enjoyed our stay here and found the inn's manager Eric to be very nice and welcoming. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The only drawback was that the bathroom was in the hall and not ensuite; it was private but you still had to enter a public hallway to go in/out of bathroom and lock/unlock the door each visit. We would have preferred more privacy.
4.4 on July 25, 2012
Very happy with B&B. Would definitely go back. The staff was very accommodating and hospital.
4.4 on July 23, 2012
I went with my fiancee and we had a wonderful stay. They let us do a late check-in and were very accommodating. We stayed in the Hunt room and it was huge - maybe a little larger than we needed, but it was great. The bed is very comfy and we slept like babies. We woke up in the morning and went downstairs for a full breakfast and coffee. The whole experience was very pleasant - everyone was super nice and the guests were all in great moods. We then went outside and visited the llamas and alpacas! Those critters are awesome. They too were in good moods and greeted us warmly. All in all we want ot go back and stay a whole weekend. I highly recommend. New Hope is super close and there are tons of restaurants and shopping places nearby.
4.6 on July 23, 2012
Our stay at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn was delightful. Innkeeper, Eric, welcomed us with warmth and friendliness. The grounds were lovely, and the alpaca farm outside our room delighted us all week. We went out and talked to the animals and enjoyed their beautiful eyes and friendliness. We certainly plan another stay at Chimney Hill!

The Chimney Hill Estate was a wonderful place to stay for our weekend getaway. Eric was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable; and makes a great breakfast to boot! The grounds are beautiful and provided many places to just sit and relax. Our room was comfortable, clean and better than expect3ed based on online pictures. Lastly, the alpacas were one of the highlights of our entire weekend. We loved walking out after breakfast to feed our new friends. Overall, our stay at the Chimney Hill Estate was beyond what we expected and we will definitely return!
4.2 on July 21, 2012
cute town, Rice's fleamarket on Tuesday/Sat is wonderful! The rive rin the summer is so nice and the stay was welcoming.
5 on July 21, 2012
Chimney Hill Estate Inn was a lovely experience. We stayed in one of Barn Suites and loved it. The breakfasts in the morning were freshly made by Eric, who was so welcoming and kind and an excellent cook too!! I highly recommend the Chimney Hill. Great way to start the day!!
3.8 on July 21, 2012
A truly beautiful and unique property. very close to town of Lambertsville but very private setting. We stayed in the "Treetop" room which was delightful and very private. the steps up to this room are not suited for the physically challenged. The full Breakfast was very good. Service was wonderful-If you have special diet staff graciously offered to prepare it " your way ." An added bonus.. This property is a certified animal habitat. There are alpaca and Llamas who are happy to be hand fed treats provided by Inn.
3.4 on July 18, 2012
We have only stayed at one b&b in the past and needed a get away. We loved this place and would return again. The staff and guests were very friendly. The atmosphere was relaxed, just what we needed. The breakfast area was very nice with delicious food. The only concern we had is that the air conditioner didnt seem to cool very effectively in the room we were in. Some minor paint repairs needed in our room. Otherwise lovely property and stay!
5 on July 18, 2012
Chimney Hill Estate Inn is located on spacious beautiful acreage near New Hope Pennsylvania, graced with the presence of actual llamas and alpacas! The rooms, the service, the location are simply perfect for a carefree romantic getaway away from it all! Come and enjoy.

Beautiful grounds, very nice rooms, incredible service. Slightly disappointed with the amenitities, such as fireplace not working, internet not working, TV not working.
3.2 on July 16, 2012
Chimney Hill is very nice; the room was large and comfortable; everything was clean; breakfast was very good. We were greeted at the door when we arrived. Would have liked to have chairs outside so we could have relaxed in the outdoors in the evening. All in all it was very enjoyable.
4.6 on July 16, 2012
The inn was charming, but the staff was absolutely outstanding. Great value for the money.
2.8 on July 16, 2012
Chimney Hill is a quaint place that must take a lot of work to maintain. We had a nice time, and I am glad that we paid the Groupon rate. We worried beforehand because other than the automated email, there was no reply to our phone calls or emails for the month between picking the dates and checking in. Eric, who served as host was very pleasant. The bed in Vincent's Hideaway is comfy, and the adjoining bathroom is a private bath, but evidently putting the "do not disturb" sign on the door means nothing to the staff. If you get the Groupon package, be aware that there is no winery tour on weekdays, only an informal tasting. The restaurant voucher at Anton's is a good value, however. Our meals there were quite nice. Overall, we spent a happy two days at Chimney Hill, and the alpacas were a plus.
4.4 on July 16, 2012
All of our needs were met by the lovely managers of the Inn. the breakfast was charming and feeding the alpacas was a highlight
4.6 on July 14, 2012
Were at Chimney Hill for two wonderful nights. Eric was gracious and the perfect guide to the area. We enjoyed the $50 certificate to Anton's, a really nice night, Loved the area, had been there before, but never used the towpath. Rode bikes to next town and had a lovely lunch on the riverfront. Absolutely loved the alpacas and saw deer and fox from our deck. Just a perfect location, lovely decor, and great breakfast. The only drawback...air conditioner a bit loud. Definitely will come back and recommend to others.
2.8 on July 11, 2012
Innkeeper and staff friendly. Room was in slight need of repair, but nothing huge. Alpacas were fun. Breakfast was okay. pretty on plate but variety and quantity of food was lacking compared to other places we have stayed. would i come again? maybe.
Thank you for your response. If there is any issue with your room, we always appreciate you letting us know and we will repair immediately. Our breakfast is lovely each day and freshly made. It includes Breakfast Fruit/ Breakfast Bread/ Entree and if you need anything additional ,should you ask, we cer4tainly will most likely be able to accommodate. Thank you, Terry and Eric

Chimney Hill Estate Inn in Lambertville, NY is happily adjacent to New Hope, PA. It is an aestheticly pleasing location, peaceful and quiet. No television, thank the heavens! We stayed at the "Garden Room" with our own bathroom. The staff is very friendly and understands customer satisfaction. Interestingly, the owners raise llamas and you are allowed to feed them. We received a bottle of wine and a dinner coupon to an outstanding restaurant just down the hill called "Anton on the Swan". Since Lambertville is next door to neighboring New Hop, PA, we had lots of shops to visit. There were quite a few restaurants, too! One that we really enjoyed was "Marsha Brown", which at one time was a church. The beautiful stain glass windows are still there. Service, just like Anton's was exceptional. Both restaurants had an intriquing past. Richard and Terry Anderson definitely have the right person in charge at the Inn: Eric. He holds many jobs including host and breakfast announcer. The first morning, we were served a bannana in orange cream and french toast. The second morning, we were served fresh fruit and an ommlet. Although I am definitely used to bigger portions, breakfasts were enjoyable. Every Friday in New Hope, one can enjoy fireworks in the Delaware River just below the Inn. All in all, I would rate our stay as enjoyable and interesting. The shops nearby were definitely too expensive for the middle-class like us. Well worth the trip...
Thank you for your visit! We have a wonderful staff and Eric is a great person as a host. Hope you can come back soon again. Terry and Rich

Stayed for 2 nights during the week of July 4th. Nice room. Lovely breakfast. Sweet staff. Good location. It was the perfect amount of time to visit and explore Lambertville, New Hope, Peddlers Village, a wine tasting tour, bicycle rental and walking path. Have a wonderful time.
Thank you very much! We really appreciate you stay and are very happy that you enjoyed your time with us! Terry & Rich

We had a great time relaxing, despite some well water issues that ended up not even effecting us. We used Groupon.
I appreciate your understanding. This is a first time we experienced any issue in over 2 years. We all did make the very best if the situation and you wonderful attitude made it even better :-) Thanks! Terry

the place was very charming and comfortable . An inviting living room we went down ro and read our books with soothing music in the background. The breakfasts were great and serviced freshly made for each person. Everything was wonderful and would highly recommend Chimney Hill Estate.
Thank you! Thank you! We appreciate your comments and are very proud that you had such a lovely stay! Terry and Rich

The Barn Suites were lovely, the staff warm and friendly and the alpacas were darling. It was a very romantic getaway spot.
Very Sweet! Thank you! Terry

The setting is lovely. The room (we chose the "buttercup" )was, well, cozy. Breakfasts were very nicely done, and the staff was very gracious. We will surely return.
Thank you for you kind comments, we really appreciate you and your visit! Terry

Recently, my boyfriend and I stayed at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn. We purchased a Groupon which provided a wonderful experience at a great value. We appreciated the beautiful grounds, the quiet setting, gracious hospitality, and the tastefully decorated rooms. The breakfast in the morning was a real treat. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Since we've returned home, we've been telling our friends that Chimney Hill is a great place to go to relax, recharge, and enjoy.
3.4 on July 05, 2012
The staff was very helpful and accommodating especially when the water was shut off because the septic system was disrupted. The breakfast was delicious. The location was great. Very close to both Lambertville and New Hope.
Thank you for your patience. We really worked hard to accommodate- but it is Mother Nature who has to refill that well with water. All worked out great and we had the best guests ever to work with too! Thanks, Terry and Rich and Eric
4.2 on July 05, 2012
We had no water for most of the day on Saturday. The inn keeper was very apologetic and tried to help out as best as he could.
Thanks for your understanding, it was a most unusual situation but we did try our best. Our guests were wonderful and we were thankful as well when all water was back in service.
4.8 on July 04, 2012
We had terrific time. We took our bikes along and had a great ride on the nearby towpath, a very user friendly shady path along the river. We rode to Frenchtown for a most delightful lunch at Lovin Oven, right off the path. Walking around town in the evening is pleasant and you can easily walk to New Hope which is across the walking bridge from Lamberton a nice town also filled with lovely shops and eating places. Enjoy....
Glad that your stay was so very nice. I love Frenchtown too! Come back soon!

What a lovely and relaxing time. The rural setting, quiet atmosphere, and private feel of our suite made our one-night stay feel like an extended vacation. Since we were on a tight budget we chose the buttercup room, which turned out to be a spacious and lovely suite with a private patio, fireplace, and conference table, which was strange at first, but was much more luxurious than we were expecting for such a reasonable price. Service was friendly and accommodating. I honestly chose this inn over the others for the alpacas, which were a lot of fun to watch, but everything about it was just right for us. We hope to go back sometime.
Thanks! We are so glad you chose us and that you loved our Alpacas! We love them too !

We stayed here a weekend and it was amazing. We loved the alpacas so much! They are so funny! Where else can you get up in the morning and just walk out and feed alpacas? Way too much fun. The place is gorgeous and so are the grounds. We loved sitting on the bench swing that overlooks the garden and just chatting. We stayed in the Library room. It's one of the rooms that doesn't have an in-room bathroom. But that section of the hallway is very private. Totally worth it for the room - it has 6 windows and the walls are yellow. It's so warm and full of light all day! We loved flipping through the library books too. All the staff members we interacted with were super super polite and helpful. It was very nice. Breakfast was great both mornings! The only reason I take away a star for "dining" is that although our room had a little bottle of wine when we arrive (awesome!!), we were not given water. The water from the bathroom tap looked cloudy. Now...I'm sure if we had given Eric a call, he would've been at our door in a minute with like 8 gallons of water. Cuz he seems like that kinda guy. But we didn't want to bother anyone. The "Innfo" book in our room told us how to get to a Wawa, so we went there. I'm used to B&Bs giving us water bottles. There were free cookies in the pantry though. We loved snacking on those. Everything was super clean. The bathroom was very nice. Good shower. It doesn't have AC which was a little uncomfortable, but no big deal. The bed was very comfy. We appreciated the WiFi when we needed it, but we enjoyed being away from it all. Our cell phones didn't get great reception and there's no TV. It was so nice to be away from all the distractions. All I had on my agenda was to sit and watch the trees sway in the wind. We had a great time.
Thank you for the amazing review. Just a note , our water is spring water- when it is cloudy that does CLEAR UP VERY SOON- as it is just the bubbles of air. Our spring is testes 1/4ly for quality and is absolutely delicious! Thanks Again!
4.2 on June 27, 2012
Very clean, comfortable rooms. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!
4.4 on June 27, 2012
We kept waiting for a "catch" given the good location, value and service, but there was none. This was probably the best B&B stay we ever had.
We thank you so very much! You kind review makes us feel happy to be in this business! Terry and Rich

My fiancée and I got an amazing Groupon deal to stay here, and enjoy some of the local attractions along with it (a voucher to Anton's, one of the best meals we had ever had; a wine tasting at Unionville Vineyards). This was the most enjoyable stay we could have hoped for. Everything about it was perfect. The house, the ambience, and it all started when Eric met us with a big smile and a warm welcome. We felt so comfortable and like we belonged there, while also having our privacy respected. It was perfect. Breakfast was incredibly well-put together and we looked forward to it. We also made friends...with the Alpacas, it was so nice and calming to go out back and feed them and hang out with them and the two mama llamas. I have no complaints, other than I wish I could have stayed longer.
3.8 on June 18, 2012
Feeding the Alpaca's was a highlight - they are fun animals! The only thing we didn't like is that the TV didn't come with a DVD player, though that is stated on their website, we just missed it. No big deal though, our stay was wonderful!!
4.8 on June 16, 2012
- Impressed with a quick response during reservation process. - Enjoyed their home made fresh cookies every evening. - The inn keeper is very attentive and professional. - Breakfast was very nice. Barn Suit#4 was very comfortable and clean. - We paid approx. $450 for 2 nights. That's a great deal for the suit. We look forward to staying there again.
4.8 on June 16, 2012
The Chimney Hill Estate Inn is a charming country getaway with easy access to the New Hope and Lambertville shopping areas. The wildlife rating and the animals on the property only add to the charm. I give a 5-star recommendation to Chimney Hill Estate and would definitely go back when opportunity allows. - Paul DiBartolo
5 on June 14, 2012
We had a wonderful stay at Chimney Hill! The room was spacious and beautiful. It was very quiet and relaxing. We thought we were the only people staying there! The breakfast was also delicious. Terry was a great host and gave us helpful information about the area. The alpacas were adorable and made our vacation!
3.4 on June 11, 2012
If you want to get away from it all, NO TV, NO Bar, NO Telephone, then this is the place, and Eric is a fabulous host.

We totally enjoyed our stay. Service was fantastic. Food was awesome. We highly recommend and will be going back again.
4.8 on May 30, 2012
Highly recommended place to stay.. Good breakfast, very nice facilities and the alpacas are a treat to feed... :)
3.4 on May 30, 2012
Very pleasant and enjoyable place to relax. Nick, the Innkeeper, was very personable. Breakfast on both days was very good.
4.2 on May 29, 2012
The main house and the room was very clean. The alpaca's are adorable. The chef is very friendly. The only thing I would have changed was more lighting in my room. We stayed in Barn Room #1. Other than that, I would definately recommend it.
4.8 on May 28, 2012
The place is outstanding, stayed in the Barn suite which is worth the upgrade. Staff was very attentive. Made reservations at the last minute, but the staff and facility exceeded expectations. rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet.
5 on May 20, 2012
We had a lovely time at this beautiful property. Our guest room was very comfortable and the country breakfasts provided were delicious! The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The common sitting room in the main house with its comfy sofas was our favorite spot and we were sorry to leave-we will definitely come back in the fall!
4.4 on May 19, 2012
Booked through a living social deal the bed and breakfast was fantastic. The alpacas added just the extra touch to the stay. The breakfast hand crafted for us have even though we arrived 10 minutes to ending breakfast hours. The staff was informative and helpful in making dinner reservations and escorting us to our outstanding accommodations. The shower in barn suite 4 was to die for! Anyone looking for a quick getaway this place is highly recommended.

A gift from our children and grandchildren proved to be an amazing 2 day mini vacation at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. The relaxing atmosphere, beautiful barn suite, wonderful hosts and of course the Alpacas all made it a time to remember. My husband was so impressed he has booked another stay for our wedding anniversary.
4.6 on May 17, 2012
Nice piece of land, Alpacas were cute. Surprisingly a lot to do in this area. Will probably return. S. Gladkowski
4.4 on May 15, 2012
Delightful B&B; definately recommend booking a Barn Suite. Feeding the alpacas, touring the local wineries, shopping the antique/vintage clothing stores and relaxing on this beautiful estate all make for a lovely respite.
4.6 on May 14, 2012
We really enjoyed our two night stay ay Chimney Hill. The main building has a natural, historic charm to it, and is appointed and maintained impeccably. The Barn Suite was equally impressive, comfortable, and private. Eric is a wonderful host, and a very talented chef. His breakfasts were beautifully prepared, very tasty, and served with a smile. The fact that he is self-taught is even more impressive. Be sure and spend some time feeding the resident Alpacas - they are as cute and adorable as can be, with their buck-toothed grins and huge, bulging brown Marty Feldman eyes. Just be careful - we laughed ourselves silly when one of them sneezed and got gobs of Alpaca goo on my arm! A&S
4.2 on May 13, 2012
We took advantage of a Groupon to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary (albeit almost 6 months late). It was a fabulous time. Eric, the chef & maitre d' & butler & Man Friday, was wonderfully attentive and thoughtful -- best part was when he noticed we were spending the afternoon in the Stone Room and he built a fire there for us to enjoy. Lambertville & New Hope were a lot of fun to wander, the tow path made for a nice & easy walk. It's amazing how loudly those alpacas complain when they're being sheared, but even that was entertaining. A great place to visit, we highly recommend it, and hope that we can go back again. For those heading northeast to go home, definitely stop at the Unionville Winery for a taste test.
5 on May 09, 2012
We were so impressed by the beautiful room and outstanding service. The breakfast was out of this world. We also loved the alpacas. They were clean and very good natured. We can't wait to come back.
Thank you so much! We really enjoy that you experienced a relaxing stay!

Super great staff! Nice property! Used a Living Social Deal so it was a good value! Barn Suite was lovely! Only slight negative is the mattress comfort was OK.
3.4 on May 07, 2012
Only our second B&B experience. Nice facility overall. Some rooms do not have TV and none in public areas. Not a problem for us. Bedroom in our suite had very poor lighting. No one on premises after all guests are checked in for the day to help with something or to answer questions. However staff were very helpful when they were there. I would recommend with some reservation, but overall a nice experience.
Thank you for your comments. We are always on the property as we reside here. You have a posted number to reach us for any questions or problems- any time. We do have to leave the estate home so we can prepare for the next day as we are your staff in the morning as well. Thank you
3.6 on May 03, 2012
A change in our travel plans shortened our stay at CHEI, so we didn't even get an opportunity to meet our hosts nor eat breakfast there. However, Richard & Terry were very accomodating and made it easy for us to get settled on our own and enjoy the quiet of the farm. The setting is beautiful, and the easy access to the shops and restaurants of Lambertville are wonderful. We were unable to access the internet there, which is nice for a vacation spot, but posed some problems for us.
Thank you for your comments. There is internet available through out the Estate and the Barn as well. From time to time our internet provider Comcast does have minor issues. This happens to every household at one time or another- but it is usually in operation with out fail and is complimentary without any password requirements for your convenience and use. Thank you.

Lovely and relaxing visit. Great dinner at Anton's at the Swsn
4.4 on May 02, 2012
The Inn was absolutely spotless. It was clean, beautifully decorated. The check in and check out were quick and orderly. Breakfast was delicious. Our only complaint is that our bathroom was not attached to our room. We were on the first floor, next to the parlor - so there was very limited privacy. I did not expect this. The site said the room had a private bath, and I assumed is would be attached to our room
Thank you for your comments- we enjoyed your visit!
4.4 on May 02, 2012
Our stay was very pleasant and we enjoyed the quiet and solitude. Both breakfasts were very good. We intend to visit again in the future.
5 on May 02, 2012
We had a great weekend at Chimney Hill. We stayed for two nights with a Groupon deal. The people that work there are friendly and very helpful. The room we stayed in was pretty small (Buttercup), but we really only slept there as we were constantly doing activities in town so that was no big deal. The alpaca farm added a nice rustic touch to everything. Great place, would love to stay there again!
3.4 on May 02, 2012
Our room was lovely and quiet. It was fun to see the llamas and alpacas near our suite. The service was excellent. There were a few minor problems, such as a fireplace that wouldn't stay lit, but overall the stay was very nice. Breakfasts were quite good and our host was very friendly.

Wonderful stay for the weekend. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with whatever you needed. The breakfast was fabulous!
4.6 on April 30, 2012
Our second visit here and we plan to go again. Our room (the Garden Room) was delightful with two very comfortable reading chairs and a fireplace to add to the ambience. The king bed was great for sleeping. Eric, the host, was so helpful and knowledgeable, always there for the guests. The breakfasts were the best ever and we've stayed at quite a few BNB's. Cookies and beverages in the afternoon; coffee, tea, ice, etc., always available in the pantry (and coffee & tea in the room). No TV in the main house but access to WiFi which we used for music and TV. There isn't one complaint no matter how hard I think about it. Can't wait to go back.
4.6 on April 30, 2012
My fiance and I had a lovely stay in one of the Barn Suites. The room was absolutely beautiful, very large, with every amenity you can imagine. The grounds are lovely, and the alpacas are quite friendly and fun. We could have stood there feeding them all day - but then we would have missed out on exploring Lambertville and New Hope. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall, a wonderful stay.
4.2 on April 30, 2012
Lovely setting, great breakfast, good service but our room needed a little uplift.
3.4 on April 29, 2012
Great charm rooms we had in main house were nice but would stay in Barn suites on next stay those rooms look great. We had one minor complaint for one of the rooms and staff took care of this quickly although they seemed insulted and resistant at first.Other then that we were treated very well.
3.2 on April 28, 2012
Wished there were nice soft furniture infront of the fireplace, instead of a conference room table in our suite.
The Buttercup room is LOCATED NEARBY the conference room- but the conference room IS REALLY NOT PART OF THE Buttercup room - Buttercup is a separate room - and the fireplace is not part of Buttercup, it is part of the conference room. I hope this explains why there is a conference table there :-)
4.2 on April 28, 2012
My husband and I booked a night at Chimney Hill Inn as a little anniversary trip, since we enjoy the towns of Lambertville and New Hope as well. There were many amenities included in the coupon and the room was significantly discounted, which was pretty much why we could afford it. The room was fantastic, we had the two-story with the jacuzzi and fireplace. The fireplace was very nice, it made the room quite warm so we couldn't keep it on for very long. The shower was crazy! We had a lot of fun with it. The alpacas are very cute but they won't let you pet them. Breakfast was really nice, the whole thing was just perfect.
Our Alpacas are not pet-able animals- they are actually herd animals and not domestic in any way. But they really enjoy meeting our guests and snacking from their hands. :-)
4.8 on April 28, 2012
Enjoyed our stay at this very comfortable inn...our groupon included a wine tasting, a stipend for dinner, feed for the alpacas, and a gift shop credit...was our first time will have to give it another try....
Thank you very much! We really hope that you will come for a visit again!
5 on April 26, 2012
We loved the alpacas so much! The staff was so nice and helpful. We would definitely come back!!!
Thank you for your kind words. We all work very hard to make your stay fun and memorable!
4.2 on April 26, 2012
Enjoyed a one night stay at ChimneyHill. We were scheduled for late arrival and all instructions, etc. were ready and waiting. Dining at the nearby restaurant Antons was a wonderful suggestion. Had a lovely breakfast followed by feeding the Alpacas! An added extra. Will definitely visit Chimney Hill again.
4.4 on April 24, 2012
We truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely inn. This included a bottle of wine, a $50 gift certificate to Anton's athe Swan hotel in Lambertville (fabulous!), a wine tasting at a local winery and a gift from the alpaca gift shop on the premises. I do feel other inns offer a better selection for an afternnon tea but the breakfast was superb. Our room in the main house, the Library Room, was authenticand romantic but the bathroom was a bit small with a very tiny mirror. There is no tv which was fine with us but if you prefer one, don't book this room. The inn is located on a wonderful country road which is just a few minutes from the eclectic town of Lambertville. We also explored New Hope, Peddlers Village and Frenchtown- all nearby. Overall, we had a memorable two days and I hope to return.
3.8 on April 24, 2012
I recently took my wife to Chimney Hill for a surprise 30th birthday getaway for her. We got the smaller "Vincent's Hideway" room which is basically the attic that was converted into a room. It was a little small and had some head bumping area for me (i'm 6' 1"), but it was very clean and nicely laid out. Breakfast was great every morning. Coffee was hot and consistent every morning. The property was gorgeous and the Alpacas were a nice addition. . . very 'country' feel to the property. New Hope and Lambertville has endless shops and great lunch/dinner dining areas. All in all it was a wonderful trip and the staff was top notch.

Stayed here for a night using a LivingSocial coupon. Excellent Service- Showed us everything we could do in the area on a map, fed us a great breakfast. Overall a very quiet place. Normally, their rates are quite expensive. However, the service and accommodations did seem to match the price (though, we did get a discount with a LivingSocial deal).

First time at a bed and breakfast. It was a great experience. Enjoyed everything about it.
5 on April 22, 2012
This was the first time we stayed at a B&B. Overall, it was OUTSTANDING! Realizing B&B's are what they are, Chimney Hill was a nice, relaxing venue for a weekend getaway. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It was off the tourist route and therefore quiet and peaceful, but only minutes away from Lambertville/New Hope, and 10 minutes to Peddlers Village.
3.4 on April 22, 2012
Alpacas are adorable- lots to do in the area- Tree top room is really quiet &l private!
4.6 on April 20, 2012
My husband and I used a Groupon to stay one night on my birthday. The Inn is a lovely spot, our room was delightful, and it's nicely located for one to be able to do many activities, from browsing the shops in Lambertville and New Hope, going to the vineyard, strolling among the wildflowers in Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve, or seeing history at Washington's Crossing parks on both sides of the river. The alpacas are sweet and it's fun to feed them. All in all, it was a very pleasant stay.
4.4 on April 19, 2012
We have stayed at Chimney Hill over a span of 20+ yrs. The accomodations, as ever, were clean, well maintained and comfortable; our rooom (the treetop) was spacious. The staff were welcoming and helpful. More than ever, present management seemed truly desirous of facilitating a good experience for us. The package of the Gift Certificates for Anton's and the winery tour rounded out a very pleasant get-away. bill wilkinsky and margit novack

Out in the woods, yet within walking distance from shops & restaurants, ChimneyHill is impressive upon arrival. The common rooms were warm & cozy; the breakfast was ample & tasty; the alpacas & llamas were cute and kept my husband occupied. All in all, this Living Social gift coupon was a good value, including a $50 gift certificate to French-style restaurant in a hotel, and 2free wine tastings at a nearby winery. However, I was a bit disappointed that we did not have an ensuite bathroom, nor did most others in our building. Although private, our bathroom was located out in the hallway, which made a midnight bathroom run rather awkward. The staff and owners were efficient and made our stay very pleasant. The most beautiful part was the surrounding area with its green rolling hills.

The property that this Inn sits on is beautiful. The gardens are lovely and the main house is a true gem. Eric the innkeeper made us feel at home from the minute we arrived. The wine and cheese in the evening was wonderful. It offered us the opportunity to relax at the end of the day in their beautiful stoned fireplace room. The alpacas are fun to feed and add to that relaxed environment. Breakfast was delicious! Our room was very pretty but some of the furniture should probably be replaced as it was quite worn out. One window sash was broken so we couldn't open it for fresh air. Overall this Inn offered us the opportunity to relax in a beautiful setting. Eric made sure that we felt comfortable and that we had what we needed to enjoy our stay. Thank you for a great weekend!
3.2 on April 18, 2012
Had a great time. The room was gorgeous. Unable to eat breakfast one morning because we showed up at 9:45am. They should offer breakfast in an hour window (say 9am to 10am).
Although we do have a breakfast hour, We are usually available to offer a late breakfast to anyone who comes in after breakfast hour.
4.4 on April 17, 2012
We stayed in March for a romantic weekend getaway. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and the fireplace very much, loved the access to the main house at any hour (great cookies), breakfast was warm and inviting (baked apples and pancakes), and the kicker was the Alpaca farm on the premise. We must have spent hours outside with them! They are so close to the heart of Lambertville/New Hope that a stay there will not be disappointing. Trust me - the people who run Chimney Hill will make sure all your needs are fulfilled.
4.2 on April 17, 2012
It is a good value with a groupon. Without discount the rooms are a bit pricey, I think
4.2 on April 16, 2012
We got this stay as a gift from our kids and they bought it on LivingSocial.com. The cost for the package had alot of value and made the room affordable but without it we probably wouldn't have been able to afford it. If you stay one night, you can't check in before 3 and must check out before 11 so your use of the house or grounds is limited. Much of the time your'e away having dinner elsewhere or touring so it can be alot of money to sleep. However the accomodations were so nice that most would love to stay longer. Enjoy
3.8 on April 16, 2012
A lovely place for a short visit to the area. Nice place to escape. This was my third visit . I enjoy staying in the separate rooms ( the barn ) rather than the main house. It is very quiet so a day or two perfect. The deal they have going with Antons is great I loved the dinner we had there. Now the one little negative breakfast the first day ( we stayed two) was just too sweet french toast which was more like bread pudding. Eric is wonderful but a more traditional breakfast I think would be better.
4.6 on April 16, 2012
The staff were attentive to our needs and the room we stayed in was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Thank you for providing us with such wonderful accomadations.

My husband and I just returned from Chimney Hill Estate and found our stay just so very pleasant. Erica was so hospitable, the rooms were clean, as well as beautiful, and our breakfast was delicious. We had a Groupon deal and our host treated us royally! Our meal at Anton's at the Swan was superb, also. We certainly would return to this lovely hideaway! Oh, the Alpacas were definitely charming...
5 on April 13, 2012
We came here on a Living Social deal and what a deal it was! This is not your typical B&B, with duplex rooms, jacuzzis, and alpacas roaming the grounds! The Inn is on a quiet country hill right in Lambertville (right across the river from New Hope, Pa.) I can't wait to go back (deal or no deal)!

Just three hours from Washingron, DC, you can escape the traffic, sirens, and politics, and arrive in the small town, Lambertville, NJ, where you will find a great bed and breakfast, Chimney Hill Estate Inn. Our visit to Chimney Hill was great, Eric, the Inn Keeper, who checked us in, has definitely mastered the skills of excellent customer service and made our stay memorable. Many thanks to Eric, the owner, and entire staff, who made our stay wonderful. We will definitely plan to visit Chimney Hill Estate Inn again.

My husband and I came for a midweek stay. We had a wonderful time. The staff was helpful, courteous, and eager to please. The room was great. Nice ambiance. Breakfast was delicious. I highly recommend the Chimney Hill Estate!

This bed and breakfast is the ultimate get away if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful stay in a quaint town and somewhat rural area. The llama farm is clean and well maintained, and the llamas are delightful creatures. They, along with the lovely establishment, provide soothing therapy to worn out travelers looking for relaxation.

Wonderful, relaxing, delicious and even alpacas andLlamas

purchased a buying club coupon for this b&b. the coupon was for their best rooms, but when i called, those rooms had been sold out so i had to take others that they offered. the room we had was lovely, but the room we wanted would have been preferred.
5 on April 12, 2012
All I can say is Chimney Hill Estates is the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Everything was perfect and we loved feeding the Alpacas! Great place to stay!
4.6 on April 12, 2012
Stayed upstairs in the barn. Even though the winding stair case is a bit unusual to get to the bed, over it was a great, relaxiing , romantic, room. The breakfast was great both mornings. However this was the first B&B we have stayed at where the owners were not present in any way shape or form and we found that unusual. The staff that was there were wonderful. The Alpaca's are cute. Located in a great area of NJ/PA. Hopefullu we'll get a chance to stay again! Steve A.
5 on April 11, 2012
Everyone who worked there was extremely pleasant and accommodating. Not only was it pleasant to be at the inn itself but in the town of Lambertville as well. I truely enjoyed my visit and I am planning to go back as soon as I possibly can.
4.4 on April 09, 2012
We were going to be in the area to check out the location for a future event. Someone recommended Chimney Hill Estate and their recommendation was great. Unfortunately, the room/suite we wanted was unavailable, but our room was charming, had a nice porch with chairs and a small table. Breakfast was terrific. We wished we'd had more time to spend here. A very lovely place. Feeding the Llamas and Alpacas was very sweet although beware of spitting as the animals will spit at each other when competing for food and you might just get caught in the crossfire!
3.6 on April 09, 2012
Nice place in a beautiful setting. Breakfast was excellent. It was fun to feed the alpacas. We enjoyed the winery tour and tasting. Dinner at Anton's was good, but a bit overpriced and we had to drive. It was not within walking distance. However, Lambertville is a great place to walk around, especially if you like antiquing.
5 on April 08, 2012
My Boyfriend and I were very much looking foward to this mini getaway and it went above and beyond our expectations. There isnt one thing we could complain about or make a face about. Being greeted with Wine and Cheese was just the start of an amzing time. Eric was very sweet and helpful. The breakfast was extremely tasty. (I had to keep my boyfriend from swiping other peoples blueberry loaves) and our room was awesome. I never laughed so much in a shower before. That thing was so futuristic and a lot of fun! We look foward to visiting again.
4.4 on April 08, 2012
Chimney Hill Estates was a great place for a mid-week getaway. We had a groupon package which allowed us to take advantage of a wine tasting, dinner in town and food to feed the llamas and alpacas. The staff was able to accommodate my gluten/wheat allergy at breakfast, although there was no gluten-free snack option. All in all, a wonderful experience.

Stayed there using the recent Groupon. Paid for the top dollar one, and for both days. It was hard to book the rooms we wanted (4 barn suites), but we finally made it work for our schedule after rearranging things, so we could have barn suite 2. We got there, it was great, were shown to our room and told it was barn suite 2. It didn't match the pictures, and didn't have the jaccuzzi tub my wife wanted really badly. Called and asked, and was told it was #2. It wasn't and they flat out lied to me. Never brought it up again and had a great time in New Hope/Lambertville. The book in the room said it was barn suite 1, and the pictures online matched #1. Breakfast was really good. The place was really beautiful and well kept. Barn Suite #1 is NOT worth staying in. The jetted bath tub spewed corrosion specs everywhere, and the heating/AC didn't work at all. Called to tell them and the man owner who picked up was rude and said "OK, well I guess you are tellin me it isn't workin. " Told him the grate was off the back of the place to the unit, and he said the guy must be workin on it. Unprofessional, and definitely not worth anymore than we paid, even with the Groupon. Noticed in their office that they run specials on just about every site they can (Groupon, Living Social, clippers, etc). They must have to aggressively market because of similar issues, or because they aren't worth the normal price they charge. We've stayed in much better for less, and definitely won't be back here.
4.4 on April 07, 2012
Very impressed with the property itself and its converion to a B & B. It is a grand house situated on a large property in close proximity to the shopping and dining in both Lambertville, NJ and across the bridge in New Hope, PA. The service both upon arrival and at the two breakfasts we enjoyed was first rate. The breakfasts were both excellent presentations and specific needs were easily accommodated. The wind and cheese spread on the day of our arrival was very enjoyable and let to great conversation with the other guests we met during our stay. Chimney Hill Estate Inn is definitely on our radar for a future return visit and stay.
3.2 on April 07, 2012
We enjoyed our stay at Chimney Hill. Eric was a very cordial innkeeper. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Our one major complaint was the coffee. If you are a coffee drinker you understand the need to start the day with a nice cup of coffee, at Chimney Hill the coffee is terrible. We actually drove to the nearest coffee shop to get coffee for the 4 people in our party. Other than that Chimney Hill is a described, a lovely weekend escape in the beautiful town of Lambertville.

This B&B is truly a 5 star ! stayed in A Barn Suite very large ,clean and Beautiful. the grounds ,dining room entire estate is just beautiful with history The Staff makes you feel at Home.. Great Breakfast experience. Excellent tasting french toast , heavely bananas.. pancakes and baked apples... and The Owner is just so Friendly. Loved chatting with her... My HAT GOES OFF TO THIS B&B for all reasons..
5 on April 07, 2012
Overnight getaway with purchase of voucher from Livingsocial. Included a $50 voucher for dinner at Anton's at the Swan. Food was great and the restaurant was only 5 minutes away by car. Enjoyed feeding the Alpachas who were extremely friendly.

Wonderful, enjoyable stay. Stayed through Groupon offer which made the weekend a great value. Proprietor Terry was most gracious and friendly. We'll definitely visit again!
5 on April 04, 2012
Lovely B&B. Clean and quiet. The staff was wonderful! The food was delicious! And we loved visiting the Alpaca's! Had a wonderful time!
4.4 on April 04, 2012
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful old home. Drinking afternoon wine in the Stone Room, we met several other couples and all agreed that Chimney Hill is among the best of B & Bs out there. Breakfast in the dining room is an elegant affair-seldom experienced anywhere else. Be sure to visit the alpacas and llamas several times. They are comical.
4.4 on April 02, 2012
We arrived at a gorgeous little farm. The main house and the rooms were spotless, which made me so at ease (im a total clean freak). The service staff were so friendly and kind, just made you want to stay longer. And the adorable little town of Lambertville is right down the street. And for those of you who like a little more action, New Hope is right across the bridge (5minutes). All in all a great stay! I'd definitely go back.
4.8 on April 01, 2012
What a great getaway! Stayed 1 night at the Chimney Hill with a groupon and was pleasantly surprised. Eric, the innkeeper was so warm and friendly. The alpaca's were a great little addition to the b and b experience. Stayed in the main inn and didn't even miss the tv! Walked to and from Anton's on a nice spring night and enjoyed the walk before heading back to our room. (The hill was not so bad) Would highly recommend, wish we had one more night to enjoy another breakfast in the beautiful dining room.
4.8 on April 01, 2012
The inn was very convinient to New Hope and Lambertville. The staffs recommendationd for dining were great. We had a very nice time and will return. From Virginia
4.6 on April 01, 2012
What a lovely place to stay. The room was gorgeous. Bruce, the Innkeeper was very welcoming. We were provided with everything we needed and more. I would highly recommend staying there. The breakfast was outstanding.
5 on March 29, 2012
My fiance' and I had a wonderful stay at the Chimney Hill Inn. The service was outstanding! We recommend the inn to everyone, and will be going back soon!
4.6 on March 28, 2012
We had a wonderful stay. The room was quaint, a little noisy but that is a bit to be expected in an old barn. The breakfast was delicious and it was fun feeding the alpacas and llamas. We would definitely recommend Chimney Hill and possibly go back again ourselves.
4.8 on March 27, 2012
We had a wonderful, romantic stay at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. Our dear friends that we met on our honeymoon 22 years ago joined us. My husband and I were running late to meet the check-in time of 5:30 but Eric (innkeeper) was kind enough to stay later and show us around. Everything was delightful, from meeting other guests in the Main House to enjoying a scrumptious breakfast with such pleasant service. We will definitely be back again!
3.8 on March 27, 2012
The setting of Chimney Hill is beautiful and the charm of a small herd of alpacas and llamas topping off the atmosphere. Though a farm, the location is very convenient to all Lambertville has to offer. We were met by Eric who was a very gracious host, wonderfully welcoming. The main house is beautiful. We stayed in the barn which was comfortable but I found the decor a bit tacky with too many silk flowers around the place, plastic cover on the mattress -- incongruous with the natural beauty of the farm itself and the stately old estate. A small complaint, overall.
4.8 on March 26, 2012
We enjoyed our stay at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The barn suite we stayed in was beautiful and clean. We would definitely go back again.
4.4 on March 26, 2012
My girlfriend and I went here for our anniversary weekend. This place was simply amazing. Beautiful scenery around the property, fresh air - and the alpacas are pretty cool too! The breakfasts were delicious, and the room was beautiful. My only complaint was that there were a few stinkbugs around, but that comes with the country-type location it's in. I would absolutely stay here again! A+!
5 on March 25, 2012
We stayed on one of the exquisite barn suites overlooking the grazing Alpaca family. The suite was beautiful, clean and quite relaxing. We enjoyed a delightful breakfast prepared by Eric, the Manager of the Inn. He was very friendly and helpful. We look forward to visiting again when the flowers and gardens are in full bloom! The Alpaca were also quite friendly and we enjoyed feeding them!
4.8 on March 23, 2012
Eric went out of his way to give us the best customer service we have ever had any where. The alpacas and Lamas were a true pleasure, extremely friendly and gentle. The rooms were very comfortable and well laid out. We will definitely look forward to returning.
4.4 on March 23, 2012
My boyfriend and I spent a night at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn for some R&R and we have nothing but wonderful things to say about this place - from the luxurioius room (we stayed in one of the barn suites) to the adorable alpacas on the property. The staff was helpful and gracious and we will definitely recommend this Inn to our friends and family. It's close to everything you might want to do in the Lambertville area but it's also a bit "off the beaten path" which made it even more enjoyable.
3.6 on March 21, 2012
Eric the innkeeper is very friendly and accommodating. The Inn is quite lovely, nicely decorated, comfortable and well-situated to be near both Lambertville and New Hope, PA. The alpacas and llamas were a fun addition to the weekend. We stayed in the Library Room on the first floor in the Main House. It was quite comfortable, a four poster canopy bed, some seating and a gas fireplace to enjoy. It was very private, despite being on the first floor. Our only complaint was the bathroom (which was private) was down the hall, a little inconvenient, but not unexpected for a bed and breakfast. Breakfast was very good on Saturday, with cranberry french toast/eggs/sausage/coffee/juices, on Sunday was Quiche Lorraine (good but not great) with home fries and bacon. We had two very nice dinners, the first at Hotel du Village in New Hope; the second at the Inn of the Hawke (corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day). Many thanks to Eric and the staff for a very pleasant weekend.
4.6 on March 21, 2012
My husband and I had a wonderful time. We stayed in the barn, it was very relaxing and private. Breakfast was outstanding and the staff was most friendly. The Alpaca farm added a nice touch.
5 on March 18, 2012
Our stay at the Chimney Hill Estate was a very nice get away for us. The inn is very well kept and the breakfast was excellent. It would have been nice to meet the Owners though. We plan on returning in a future trip to Lambertville. Thank You
4.4 on March 18, 2012
Eric gave us a warm welcome even though it was a chilly day. The cozy stone room with large leather sofas , and a fire was so inviting. Wine and cheese were generously offered. Lovely couples taking time for themslves provided stimulating conversation. It took very little time to become relaxed and realize this was going to be a special occasion.
4.2 on March 16, 2012
Lovely place with lots of charm. Wonderful breakfast and service by manager, Eric. Very relaxing in a great location.
4.6 on March 14, 2012
Best B&B yet! The room was large, comfortable, light and private. Bathroom was adorable with the claw foot tub. Eric was always on hand to answer any questions we had. Breakfast were full course and fantastic, especially the 'heavenly bananas' and the mini breakfast loaf. We went to a dinner theater in town and shopping at Peddler's Village. Looking forward to our next trip there. Definitely a keeper on our list of places to go!!!
4.6 on March 14, 2012
Beautiful estate. The room was larger than most bed and breakfast rooms I have stayed in. It was updated while still charming, and very clean (and I am particularly picky about this). The common rooms on the first floor were quite comfortable and pleasant. My husband and I played a boardgame and drank wine in the stone room in the late evening and had a great time. During the day I worked in the stone room and found it very peaceful and serene. Breakfast was perfect, and they were more than happy to cater to my diet of no meat, offering me another tasty option. I only really encountered one staff member, Eric, but he could not have been a nicer fellow. Helpful and always had a smile on his face. That makes all the difference. The property was beautiful, even in winter with no leaves. It is only a 1/2 mile to town making it very convenient to drive or walk (as we chose to do for dinner). The best part...the sweet and ridiculously comical alpacas. You just have to see for yourself, you will never forget it. It was the talk of all the guests. I was compelled to visit them multiple times a day. I have stayed at most of the b & b's in Lambertville and New Hope, and I do believe that this one was the most memorable. You won't be sorry.
4.2 on March 13, 2012
What a charming gem hidden away on such beautiful grounds! Loved every aspect of the stay- ERIC was so accommodating and the Alpacas were adorable. Such a great time!
5 on March 12, 2012
Stay was terrific. Breakfast was excellent. Dinner voucher was for a great restaurant, and most of all, Eric was great. Will be back
4.6 on March 12, 2012
We just got back from our stay at this B&B. I have not one complaint. From the minute we walked into the door til the minute we checked out was nothing but enjoyable. The rooms were clean, the food was delicious and I enjoyed feeding the Alpacas. Can't wait to return.
4.4 on March 12, 2012
My husband and I went here for a quick one night "get away" from the madness and it was wonderful. Not only were we greeted by the Inn Keeper, but he called me in advance to tell me our room was ready and we could check in early if interested! We stayed in Barn Suite #4 and the room looked just as it had in the photographs and was comfortable and clean. We surely did not want to return to reality, however, will most likely return to Chimney Hill again!
4.0 on March 11, 2012
Beautiful, comfortable room. Delicious breakfast and courteous staff made us feel very welcome. Great place to relax!
5 on March 07, 2012
The service was amazing. They remembered me from the following times that I came and visited and are very generous to returning customers as well as extremely helpful to newcomers. With their charming rooms and beautiful country-feel architecture, it truly feels like you are in a different world. In the summer, the yard is filled with beautiful flowers and at night the fireflies take over. Truly a magical experience!
5 on March 07, 2012
My boyfriend and I went for a weekend getaway. We used the groupon deal they had. He and I were a little shocked to learn that they have no TV's in the rooms but at least they had wifi set up in the entire house. He and I were also taken back because we were the youngest couple at the bed and breakfast and felt a little out of place. We were looking for night life etc but we soon realized the purpose of the trip was to sit back and relax and enjoy each others company. Little did I know that he had something else planned......Saturday night he proposed!!!!! This place had me hooked before he proposed but now that we are engaged this place will always have a special place in my heart. I would love to say our I DO's at this venue or something very similar! We live in NYC so the trip may be too long for some of our family members. THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Over the past few years, I have visted 3 or 4 B&B establishments each year. As such, I do have high expectations. But, please do not let my rating of only "Met my Expectation" underscore what a grand B&B Chimney Hill Estates truly is. The place really is very nice, quaint, and comfortable. We stayed in one of the Barn Suites. The staff are extraordinary people, top to bottom. The only thing I would like to have liked better is the coffee. At home, I make the best coffee with fresh ground beans every morning. I love starting may day as such and it would certainly have enhanced an already splendid breakfast. I was also impressed that they went out of their way to find an alternate restaurant for us to have dinner at since the one in their advertisement was closed on the day we were there. This is a must stop for the B&B connoisseur.
5 on March 06, 2012
The Chimney Hill Estate Inn is a gem! The rooms, grounds and service were wonderful. We're looking forward to planning our next stay.
3.6 on March 05, 2012
My husband and I took advantage of a Groupon and stayed at Chimney Hill for our anniversary (and a weekend away without kids). We absolutely loved the charm of house (and it was a welcome change that there were no tvs, although there was free WiFi). It was simply beautiful (and clean). We stayed in the Renaissance Room, which was lovely. Breakfast was lovely. After breakfast, we fed the alpacas and then walked into town (both Lambertville and New Hope) and spent the day walking and shopping. We came back for wine and cheese in the Stone room in the evening before we went out to dinner at Anton's. At the end of our weekend, we felt as if we had been on vacation for days.
4.2 on March 04, 2012
Chimney Hill is in a bucolic setting, but minutes from Lambertville's galleries and restaurants, so I loved the location. Great communications before our stay, and impeccable service during our stay thanks to Eric and housekeeping. Barn sweet 2 is roomy, tastefully furnished, and has a cozy gas fireplace we used often. The main house common areas were beautiful, especially the leather and slate room. Breakfast was yummy all three mornings. The alpacas are an adorable distraction, great for chasing away stress. I can't wait to bring husband and friends to stay. Only two comments as food for thought: 1. Would have preferred a little more flex in timing of breakfast. Instead of single deleting, perhaps any time within one hour, such as 8:30 to 9:30 am. 2. Would have liked larger discount for last-minute booking. For example, 35% to 40% off if room still open and book within 48 hours of arrival.
4.4 on March 02, 2012
We had a lovely stay the Chimney Hill this past Tuesday. We stayed in Barn Suite 1 which was decorated tastefully and so charming. We were delighted with the size of the bathtub as we expected a normal tub, this tub definitely has room for two ;). The bed was large and comfortable and the fireplace was gorgeous. We did have one tip however, it would have been a nice touch had some water been stocked in the in-room fridge so that we did not have to go to the main house to get it. Eric was a lovely host and very helpful with our questions. We enjoyed the alpacas & llamas so much. They were so gentle and funny. The dining room for breakfast is beautifully decorated, however we did wish there were more than one option for breakfast, as my boyfriend does not like quiche. Perhaps an additional selection of waffles or pancakes would be great. One tip we have for future guests is to request additional towels in the room. We were only provided with two large towels, in addition to face cloths and we both wanted to take a bath at night and then a shower in the morning so a few more towels would have been appreciated. Lambertville and New Hope were lovely and quaint. We enjoyed exploring! Hint: Vegetarian guests cross the bridge into New Hope and go to Sprig & Vine... delicious! Overall we had a lovely stay and can't wait to return, we are planning on making this a yearly trip, if not more frequent. Can't recommend it enough. One night felt like a week's worth of vacation.
4.2 on March 02, 2012
Where else can you feed llamas and alpacas before breakfast? The house is clean, well kept, and inviting; good common spaces with wireless internet throughout. Room was spacious (though I almost needed a step stool to get into the bed!) We had a private bathroom in the hall; a bit inconvenient; some rooms have in-room facilities. Breakfast was good, but quite plain: bacon and eggs (any way you want) with fruit, etc. Most other B&B's of this caliber offer much more unusual options. Overall, a great getaway with Doylestown, New Hope, and Lambertville close by for shopping, entertainment, eating, and history.
4.8 on March 01, 2012
A Special Thanks to Eric for making us feel welcome and giving such great service. You are an asset to Chimney Hill Estates! Our room and stay was perfect. We so enjoyed the fireplaces and the delicious breakfasts! Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing weekend.
3.0 on February 29, 2012
We used a Groupon for our stay so there were a lot of other amenities tacked onto our room that made this experience worth while. If you are looking for a strict review of the lodging alone then my review might be biased. Regardless, the service was fantastic and the atmosphere was romantic. We had a great weekend getaway. The only issues we had were a few gnats in our room and the complimentary breakfast was subpar at best. I would suggest eating somewhere else if you want a substantial breakfast.
4.0 on February 28, 2012
A beautiful area and an equally beautiful inn! Our room (Barn Suite 2) was cozy, clean and well-equipped and the common areas were tastefully decorated and comfortable. Terry was a gracious hostess who gave us a warm welcome upon arrival and her staff, friendly and professional. The breakfast at the inn and dinner at Anton's were both treats. Plenty to do in the immediate area and just across the river. Looking forward to another visit!
4.2 on February 26, 2012
The Inn is absolutely lovely. Eric the Innkeeper is so so friendly and accomodating and the breakfasts were delicious. Our favorite part of the stay was sitting in the stone room in front of the fire in the afternoon when they have wine and cheese. Also Eric's cupcakes are amazing! The only drawback was I booked the Library room, which was lovely, but the bathroom is in a private hallway. It was slightly awkward to go out into the light hallway to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Also the shower was tiny. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We will absolutely be looking to go back in the Spring.
4.2 on February 26, 2012
What a charming place! The property is beautiful and very peaceful. The common areas are cozy and nicely furnished. The room was wonderful - very spacious and clean (and its not often you can take a jacuzzi next to a fireplace with a complimentary bottle of wine). There are lots of nice little touches throughout to enhance your experience, including complimentary food & beverages, and bath products a cut above the norm. The gentleman that helped us check-in and out, showed us our room, and prepared breakfast, Eric, was very sweet and thorough. We stayed through a Groupon, without which the price would have been excessive. But, with the Groupon, it was a great deal. In addition to the reduced room rate, we also got $50 off dinner at Anton's at the Swan, which was a great value - excellent food, warm atmosphere - a true delight. We also got a bottle of wine, a winery tour, $25 off at the Alpaca gift store (I came away with a lovely Alpaca scarf for only an extra $5), and a couple of bags of Alpaca food. Feeding the Alpacas is a particularly sweet touch for animal lovers; just take care with the electric fence, which gives a good zing. This is one of the best one-day packaged deals I've ever come across. One caveat: the rules here are generally reasonable, but feel overly numerous and excessively stated.
3.6 on February 24, 2012
We stayed in Barn Suite 4 on a Thursday night. The room was a great deal bc we purchased through Groupon. The pictures on Chimney Hill's website made me think the room would be a bit larger, but either way it was a lovely room and had all the amenities, along with whatever else we needed from the pantry area in the main part of the b&b. The place was very romantic and the staff was absolutely lovely. My only compliants are the bed seemed old, was uncomfortable and frame was loose. In addition, the pressure from the jacuzzi jets and shower (which was awesome otherwise) were very minimal - made the large jacuzzi tub and shower with an assortment of sprays almost pointless. It also gets very warm in the room bc of fireplace i assume.
4.6 on February 23, 2012
We stayed for an overnight on Tuesday February 2012. The inn was beautiful with lots of amenities. and Eric the innkeeper on duty was extremely gracious. Deliciious breakfast, Our unit, Barn #4 was immaculate and charming, A little pricey, but we have stayed in a comparable B&B in the area, and we expected to pay the price for the high end unit. Would definetly go back again.
3.6 on February 22, 2012
We came for a weekend and enjoyed ourselves so much! What a gorgeous, gorgeous inn! It was very beautiful and yet, homey with comfortable leather sofas in an inviting living area with a fireplace and candles lit each evening. Each breakfast was delicious! It was a treat to just walk the grounds and admire the beauty of the countryside. We highly recommend it for a romantic getaway!
4.4 on February 22, 2012
I found the place to be beautiful. The people were very nice and very accommodating. BUT I also found it to be alittle pricey and out of the way form the main streets. My husband and I come to New Hope and Lambertville about twice a month in the summer and fall months, when we stay over we stay close to the main streets so we can walk everywhere because parking is very difficult. We purchased a groupon coupon and went in February which was worth every penny for a quick getaway to this beautiful Inn.
4.6 on February 19, 2012
Loved breakfast, grounds well groomed, house was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed it very much. A wonderful place to relax. Staff friendly and welcoming.
4.6 on February 19, 2012
My husband and I had a wonderful time together during our stay at Chimney Hill. The grounds were beautiful, the history of the house charming and the alpaca adorable. We will definitely be back to celebrate our anniversary next year.
4.4 on February 18, 2012
My husband and I recently stayed in barn suite 4 and had a wonderful time at the Inn. They have thought of everything! Eric was there to help us with anything we needed and was thorough and professional. The food was wonderful, the room was beautiful and the alpacas were different and fun. The only negative was that noises do travel in the barn, but the soaring ceilings and beautiful architecture made us forget that quickly. we will definitely return!
5 on February 18, 2012
My first experience at a Bed & Breakfast, which is odd considering I have been to hundreds of hotels. Chimney Hill exceeded my expectations on many levels. Stayed in a Barn Suite and had the best breakfast I have ever had in my room. The caretaker was by far one of the nicest, most accomodating employees I have ever encountered. The Inn itself was warm and welcoming. Plenty to do in the area. The only complaint I have is that I did not stay long enough, but that's my fault!!! Next time I will definitely spend more time, hopefully soon!
4.8 on February 18, 2012
The Barn Hill suite 4 was beautiful, and we especially enjoyed the fireplace, jacuzzi tub and shower. The service was outstanding. We arrived late to breakfast, but our lovely and hospitable hostess, Terry, brought us out breakfast anyway. The Alpacas were so cute and the gift store had some really cute sweaters and hats, which we purchased for our children. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it to others.

My husband and I had a great time at Chimney Hill. The rooms were great, but we especially loved the wonderful staff and the Alpacas. Breakfast was also a great experience. Very beautiful inn!

My wife and I stayed for our Valentine's Day celebration. We immediately loved the place. It felt cozy and comfortable. We loved how quiet the grounds were. We sat in the main house where the fire crackled and danced in the fireplace. There was calm music playing which added a soft touch. The house was truly charming (style, decor, etc). We met other people, all whom were nice. The staff was all smiles - very friendly. They seemed to love the place and it showed. They were also very helpful in directing us to local restaurants and attractions. With that said, we did have a couple minor things that could have improved our stay. For breakfast, there was kind of a set menu. They had eggs. They had toast. My wife asked if they could make french toast but they refused (respectfully). That kind of personalization would be a plus - in our minds. The coffee seemed a bit watered down but maybe we had a bad brew. The TV in the room was small. But, I suppose we didn't stay there to watch TV. I would definitely go back and have already raved about the place to family, friends and co-workers. My wife and I wanted to get away and enjoy time together. Chimney Hill Estate was a great place.

We purchased a package through Living Social, and had a great time. The inn's staff was all very friendly, and we enjoyed our suite very much. The town and all it has to offer is right down the road - very convenient.

We celebrated my husband's birthday at the Inn and had a very nice visit indeed. The room (Barn Suite #3) was beautifully kept and a lovely retreat. We did not meet the innkeepers but Terry was most accomodating via email. the staff we met in the doing room, notably Eric, were equally so. We had a light dusting of snow overnight so the walk to Goat Hill overlook was particularly pretty. The only off note for us were the (easibly audible) couple bickering in the next room which did not do much for our relaxed mood and the country inn vibe. Our room could do with a bit of soundproofing. Breakfast was delicious if a bit over the top with challah french toast dripping with butter and syrup and sausage on the side. Attention to detail overall meticulous. A getaway I would recommend to others.

The most darling place to spend a weekend. Everything was exceptional. The only reason we found it was because of groupon. Although everything was great I would not pay full price for the room accomodations. The regular price is high for the rooms. I hope I get another discount of some kine. . I would go back pronto!!

Chimney Hill was cozy and homey! Rich and Terry were so sweet and I cannot imagine better service! I even forgot my fan at home, which I really need to sleep with, and Terry got one from the basement and cleaned every bit of dust out before giving it to me!The breakfast was fantastic too! Not the average or expected usual items! The Alpacas were so cute as well! We had a great time feeding them! The surrounding towns are also lovely! we walked around in New Hope looking at the shops and antique places for hours! We got the this 2 night stay through Groupon, which also included a 50 dollar credit at Anton's and the Swan for dinner one night. The food was to die for! the menu itself was nothing special but every single thing that came out of the kitchen was something to rave about! I Think the only negative comment I have is about the Wifi. At first, I didn't mind the room not having a TV because I knew I would have my computer-- but the wifi was very weak and went in and out so often that it made it near impossible to use the internet comfortably. There were random times when it worked a bit better, but overall we basically just nixed the internet completely and watched a DVD on my laptop instead. Regardless, we had a fabulous 2 night stay and would definitely be interested in going back!

Good value overall. Service and food exceeded expectations. Rooms were very good except for the inconvience of not having the bathroom on the same level as the bedroom. Could have used more clothing storage, it does not lend to longer stays

I was pleased with the service and the accomodations. The breakfast was wonderful. We are vegetarians so they were happy to make us a special breakfast. The grounds are beautiful even in the winter. We enjoyed the alpacas and took lots of pictures. We are certain that we will visit Chimmey Hill again. Next time we will come with more friends and hopefully get the barn. Thanks for making our stay wonderful. Kathy Derbyshire

Lovely main house that has so much history and character. Beautifully decorated, cozy and comfortable.

The Barn Suite 3 was lovely, spacious and cozy.Eric gave a short info tour of the main house, explained things and showed us to our rooms. He was helpful and cordial. Breakfast was delicious: baked apple, quiche, bacon and muffin. I like strong coffee so for me the coffee was weak, only criticism.'The Alpacas were about the strangest animals Ive ever seen. They are happy and well taken care of - a baby was born 7 days earlier. I bought a Living Social coupon, otherwise I would not have been able to spend the full price for one night. With the coupon the value was very good. We also got a bottle of wine, gift certificates to dinner and to the Alpaca store. I would recommend.

Great stay! Rooms clean, staff very friendly, particularly enjoyed the breakfast in the morning and feeding the alpacas. Would recommend Chimney Hill to any friends and family for a weekend getaway.

Chimney Hill did not disappoint us. The front desk staff was extraordinary, especially Eric. There was a little wait at check in, but we were provided with wine and cheese during our wait. Our room was comfortable and clean. The alpacas were cute and added a lot of fun to the visit. The alpaca gift shop offered reasonably priced gifts. Breakfast was delicious. Dining in town was only a $5 cab ride away. We have no complaints and would definitely visit again

My boyfriend and I went to Chimney Hill Estates for a much-needed getaway and we really enjoyed it. It was incredibly relaxing, even with the snow on the weekend! The breakfast was delicious and the service was great. The place is a little on the older side and the ceilings are low so you have to be careful in the Main House. The room was bigger than I anticipated, and our overall stay was lovely.

From the moment you enter the lobby and are greeted, you know this is an establishment that pays attention to detail - from the homemade cookies to the first aid supplies. This was our second stay and won't be our last! The service and breakfast are beyond compare!

we had a lovely weekend getaway - the light snow was unexpected and very romantic, inkeeper and staff were most accomodating and friendly, we particularly enjoyed having wine by the fire with other guests. only one criticism - it was most difficult to adjust the temperature in our room - unfortunately, we were uncomfortably hot.
4.6 on January 23, 2012
Everything about the Inn made us feel many miles from our daily routine. Originally thought 1 night would be fine but we're so glad we stayed Fri&Sat. It wasn't easy to leave. Our room was outstanding. And the breakfast, its unlikely that one could find a higher quality one anywhere. Will definitely stay again and have already begun recommending to our friends.
4.2 on January 21, 2012
Very Charming inn. Stayed in Barn suite #2 - cozy, comfy, wonderfully quiet. Went in January, so not a lot of people, which is just fine with me. Eric, the innkeeper, was warm and welcoming. The alpacas & llamas were delightful. Didn't expect them to be so much fun (recommend that guests get daily supply of alpaca food). Breakfast was quite nice. The Groupon amenities (wine tasting at Unionville Vineyards & voucher for Antons restaurant) were very generous. Would recommend exploring other options, for example Rick's restaurant, for alternate vouchers their food is excellent. For a two-day, mid-week getaway in winter, this was just right. Thomas & David

We took advantage of a special on LivingSocial that would allow us to stay in any Barn Suite on a Friday or Sunday. Excellent room, excellent service and breakfast. Loved getting a brief tour of the place. This is a great spot for a getaway. There are at least 2 wineries that I know of in the area - they're definitely worth checking out! Very close to New Hope.
4.8 on January 19, 2012
Chimney Hill was exactly what I'd always dreamed a B&B was supposed to be. From the moment we pulled up to the beautiful house to when we entered our bedroom, I think I had a smile from cheek-to-cheek. Eric, our innkeeper, was extremely helpful, friendly and funny. Our room was giant and perfect, from the curtains to the artwork to the books, and the bed was something out of a fairytale. The bathroom was immaculate. The eating area was so elegant and our breakfast was delicious. And the alpacas were adorable!! We plan to return and stay for a few more nights now that we know how much we love it and the area where its located. I cant think of a single thing I'd change about it.

We used a groupon getaway for a fabulous stay in Barn Suite #3 at Chimney Hill... It was truly a lovely experience from the minute Eric welcomed us to the estate! He was warm, friendly and professional, and the accommodations were very nice...clean, comfortable and inviting. Breakfast was wonderful too! It was very quiet everywhere, since we were there the first week in January. Thank you, and we hope to see you again!

My wife and I stayed on New Year's Eve 2011-2012. We didn't really mind waiting a while to check in (others were being helped to their rooms), as we relaxed by a welcoming fireplace with ample wine and cheese put out by the staff. Eric (I believe that was his name) was a gracious host and made us feel instantly welcomed, and even showed us a few rooms around the house to which we could get a free upgrade! We chose a room with a tastefully decorated Asian theme (Room 4), which was quaint, charming and clean. The grounds are lovely, the alpacas and llamas are fun to watch, and breakfast was amazing. It's about a 25-minute walk to "town," and another 10 minutes or so to New Hope from there. We walked to town and it was fine, but there is a bit of a hill, so if you're unable to walk long distances, you will need to take a cab (which is not a big deal). Overall, this is one of the best B&B's we've stayed at, and we'll be back!

My husband and I spent a night at Chimney Hill Estates 12/16/11. We stayed in Barn Suite 4. It was the perfect overnight getaway! Eric the innkeeper greeted us, explained the property to us and took us up to our room. The accommodations were spotless and cozy. We met Terry the owner at breakfast (which was delicious) and she couldn't have been nicer! Loved the Alpacas, too. Looking forward to going back next year. Anton's at the Swan was excellent for our dinner. We enjoyed the wine tasting at Unionville Winery also. The property was beautiful.

We purchased this weekend getaway trip off groupon and it was the best purchase ever!!! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful home that is so comftoable and relaxing! Terry is warm, friendly, sweet, welcoming and helpful. We loved the surrounding town with all the cute shops and had a great time at the unionville vineyard! We have officially made chimney hill our annual weekend getaway from it all! See you next year!

My girlfriend and I stole a weekend away in Lambertsville. We saw the Chimney Hill Estate Inn on Groupon and decided it looked charming, why not give it a try. Well, I have to say that this Inn was THE MOST LOVELY and CHARMING inns I have ever visited in my life. The staff was exceptionally polite and generous--as soon as we checked in, he served us wine and cheese and crackers! Breakfast was delicious, as the owner walked from table to table chatting with everyone. The rooms were cozy and warm --electric fireplace that truly warmed up the room. The bathroom was rather large and all amenites were there (blowdryer included). I cannot say enough about this place. I plan to return next year, perhaps with my husband or maybe just another weekend away with my girlfriend. Don't forget the shopping in Lambertsville can't be beat. We went to flea markets and all the shops and came back home with lots of stuff. LOVED MY WEEKEND! Thanks again to the hosts--you will hear from me again---and again.

We chose this B&B for our wedding night and were very pleased. Our rating is only based on the one night and didn't get up in time for breakfast! The grounds and main house are really beautiful and the room was wonderful. The only issue we ran into was when staying in a loft suite, the loft gets really hot with the fire on. There is a/c and a ceiling fan but the a/c system seemed to want to do its own thing and the system for the loft fan is pretty confusing. Other than that, the bed is vERY comfortable and the bathroom and tub are wonderful. The selling point for us was the staff. They were very accomodating with a late check in and Terry was great with helping us book our room. We'll be back to take advantage of the grounds and what we hear is great food!

We loved Chimney Hill Estate Inn. The inn was charming and we loved the way the history of the Inn has been preserved. Feeding the Llahma and Alpacas was fun too. We stayed in the Garden Room, which was wonderful, lots of room and relaxing. The only negative was that it was very cold overnight. There is a gas fireplace, but we weren't comfortable with having that going all night, so maybe it was our own fault. Eric, the man who greeted us and took care of us was excellent! We enjoyed visiting Peddler's Village and Lambertville too. The "package" we had was a great deal, with a certificate to dinner and also to the winery the next day. This was our first stay in a B&B and we don't know what took us so long to try it. Thanks, Kathy & Bob

Our room was much too warm! There was no temperature control, as expected in a home of that age, and our windows would not open, so we were broiling. We were forced to put on the air conditioner, which thankfully had not been removed from the window. The temperature was 78 degrees! We did not sleep well. Breakfast was delicious and the innkeeper was very nice. We purchased our stay through a Living Social coupon offer. I would not have been happy if we'd paid full price.

Overall I'd recommend it!

This has to be the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at. The accommodations were truly beautiful! We felt very welcomed and felt our hostess would help us in any way she could, as well as the rest of the staff. It is a bit expensive, but very worth it. I will definitely be going back again!

The property is just beautiful as is the main house. Upon our arrival, my boyfriend and I were greeted by Eric, who graciously showed us around the public area of the main house as well as our lovely suite room with a fireplace that, remarkably, heated the whole suite. Thanksgiving morning, we met Terry the owner, who could not have been kinder. She was very thoughtful about dietary restrictions and breakfast was just delicious, and the atmosphere calm and peaceful overall. Wish we had more than one night. We will definitely be back!! Thanks Terry!

We recently stayed at the Chimney Hill Estate over the weekend for two nights and had such a great experience. This was the first time my husband and I did a bed and breakfast and absolutely loved it! The staff was amazing and Eric was such a delight and very accommodating. We enjoyed visiting the alpacas and feeding them. We definitely would recommend to try the Chimney Hill Estate and we definitely see us returning someday! Thank you Chimney Hill Estate for making our first experience at a B&B so memorable!
3.4 on November 23, 2011
Our stay was very pleasant and the service was wonderful. If there is one criticism it's that the description of the Inn stated that each room had it's own private bath without mentioning that one had to leave the room and cross the hall to the private bath. It was still a great stay.
3.8 on November 18, 2011
This is a beautiful place to stay! Eric was very polite, and prepared nice breakfasts for us. We stayed in the barn suite, and it was a very nice, different experience. Nice spacious room, with pretty much everything you need. Linens and pillows could definately use updating, and some lighbulbs need changing. Be sure to be out of your room when housekeeping arrives, as you only get one chance. That being said, if you are looking for a quiet get away, in a lovely setting. This is the place to go. Treat yourself to Antons for dinner, it is excellent.

We stayed just one night in the Tapestry Room, and it was just wonderful!! The staff is very professional and helpful. They accomodated my special diet. We loved visiting the Alpacas and Llamas. Lambertville is a lovely town with wonderful shops. We returned home feeling rested and rejuvenated!!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Chimney Hill and it was our first time at a bed and breakfast. It exceeded our expectations of what a bed and breakfast should be. We felt we were treated like superstars by the staff. The room we stayed in was beautiful and upon arrival a bottled of chilled white wine was waiting for us. We were unsure of what to do in the surrounding area but the staff made sure that our days were busy, supplying us with maps of the town and recommendations on where to sightsee and eat. My only complaint is we should have stayed longer. I can't wait to go back. We hope to make it a yearly tradition to visit Chimney Hill.
4.4 on November 12, 2011
I hadn't heard of Chimney Hill until I received a Living Social offer for it. I booked our night away the same week I purchased the Living Social deal. It far exceeded my expectations! The room was lovely, the public areas welcoming and the breakfast delicious. I really loved feeding the alpacas and meeting the barn cat! Terry was a warm hostess. The grounds were quiet and relaxing. I would heartily recommend Chimney Hill, and want to go back soon.
5 on November 04, 2011
The Innkeeper, Eric, made our stay perfect!!! Our room (one of the barn suites) was amazing - elegant and cozy at the same time. The breakfast was fabulous! It was great fun to see the alpacas and feed them! We visited in the Fall, but I'm sure it would be beautiful all year around. Great location close to wineries, antique stores, and the beautiful Delaware River and Canals for walking and biking.
3.4 on November 02, 2011
Everything was very pleasant...the area is wonderful, having the alpacas and llamas on site is delightful, the room could be updated a bit (eg: new couch) and the room should have been swept after the open house people had plowed through.

We enjoyed a week day getaway in the Barn Suite. The room was really nice, just kind of difficult to manage the winding staircase to the bathroom at night The service and the food were outstanding!

It was a fantastic, relaxing getaway.

We just got back from two lovely days at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn. We were celebrating our 1st anniversary and left with some wonderful memories. While not the owner, Eric treated us as if we were his personal guests. He was warm, welcoming, and explained everything to us as we got settled into Barn Suite #4. We really liked our room - great jacuzzi, two televisions (which we didn't watch), two stereos (including one built into the shower for two), a queen-size bed (we sleep in a king which we would have preferred), and a two-sided fireplace. Our room was lovely, but we never could quite heat/cool the room properly or quickly. We fed the llamas and alpacas which was an unique experience. We went to Anton's at the Swan with the gift certificate we were given and had a lovely dinner. There was only one other couple staying at the Inn so we felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. The grounds are wonderful and peaceful. Last, but not least were the breakfasts. Eric asked us at check-in about allergies and items we didn't like. In the mornings he would review what he was serving and made accommodations for the other couple and included us. The breakfasts were elegant and we left with a few new recipes! All-in-all, it was a fabulous and memorable getaway.

I recently purchased a 2 night stay with Chimney Hill through Living Social. We got there and we met Eric who was wonderful. Courteous, helpful and very pleasant. He gave us a tour and showed us to our room which was awesome. We stayed in Barn Suite #4 which had a Jacuzzi, fireplace and a loft. The room was pretty amazing. Cons of the room: Bed? not so comfortable compared to other B+B's I've stayed in the area. Shower? It was very fancy with all different settings and jets but no pressure. Kind of a waste. We also found a used bar of soap in the shower and food in the fridge. But other than those things it was pretty worth it, esp the fireplace and Jacuzzi which was heavenly. Breakfast was average/good for a B+B. Nothing really gourmet but done really well. Eggs any style, Banana bread, and bananas with yogurt one morning. Next morning it was pumpkin french toast which sounded amazing but fell short cuz it was super sweet and kind've mushy. Also baked apples which was delicious. Overall heres the breakdown. -Beautiful grounds -Amazing sweet staff -Huge amenity filled room -Lacking in food quality -Bed not so comfy but manageable -frustrating shower I will return to Chimney Hill in the future, we had a great time. especially with those adorable Alpacas!

We did not feel the high prices matched the rooms. Rooms were tired, lacked good lighting and had creaky doors which caused us to change rooms. The price did include a nice breakfast and the setting was very pretty. Also, the people were very pleasant. With a little effort the above problems could easily be rectified.
4.6 on October 24, 2011
My wife and I visited Chimney Hill for the weekend and had an amazing time. The breakfast was outstanding and the accomodations were quite nice. The smell of fresh baked snacks and the beautiful fireplace had me hooked the moment we stepped into the house. The real charm of the B&B is the Innkeeper Terry and her assistant Erik. Terry not only recommended wonderful restaurants but took the time to make reservations for us. They were extremely helpful and the alpacas were awesome. We can't wait to go back.

Although we slept thur breakfast both days I must say the property was beautiful and extremely well kept. I love the proximity to downtown Lambertville and New Hope. I would highly recommend Chimney Hill Estates to anyone!
2.6 on October 18, 2011
We have stayed in various B&B's over the years and always have been provided with a really marvelous breakfast with home-baked goodies. We were told when booking this stay that breakfast would be provided in the room, which was very important to us. When we arrived, it seemed that serving breakfast in the room was an irregularity and inconvenience, and our breakfast arrived much later than requested. Breakfast was okay but nothing spectacular, and no one asked about our preferences (for instance, neither of us ever drinks orange juice but that's what we were given). The rooms were clean, but for the price we paid, we were expecting larger accommodations. Also the room was advertised as a suite, but there was no way to close the door between rooms. Thus, if one of us was unable to sleep, the bedroom could not be darkened for the sleeping person. However, the service was cheerful, the people were very pleasant, and the setting is utterly idyllic. We saw deer at least twice during our two-night stay, and feeding the alpacas was really cool. If we hadn't both had extensive farm experience as children, the rustic part of the stay would probably have been really special for us.

The service was incredible from the minute I walked in the door. They greeted with a smile and were constantly trying to please. We asked that they knock on our door if we didn't make it to breakfast, as a joke, and they actually came looking for us. I am a vegan and they did all they could to make my dining experience to my liking. They know the area very well so you will have no shortage of interesting places to visit. The town is adorable, the people are welcoming and the bed and breakfast was beautiful. Plus, we were greeted with complementary wine and cheese, what could be better? Stay there! I will certainly be going back at my next available weekend!

My stay at Chimney Hill was exceptional. The room was gorgeous and the staff extremely friendly. Being able to visit the Alpacas they raise right there on the grounds was a real treat. The fact that they are minutes away from Lambertville, NJ and New Hope, PA is an added plus because these quaint and inviting towns are a favorite of mine and my recent fiance. I say recent fiance because during our stay at Chimney Hill I proposed to her in the neighboring town of New Hope. All in all it was a magical weekend getaway.

The Inn is very nice and clean, we stayed in a Barn Suite with jakuzzi. The owner of the Inn is an extremely friendly and polite lady, whose cooking skills are terrific: the breakfast was always a pleasure. They also have a little alpaka farm, with very friendly animals, whom you can feed from your hands! Great place for a romantic weekend!

We had a very romantic stay in a barn suite. Loved the inn and the surrounding areas. Terry was very helpful with suggestions for places to eat and what the towns had to offer.

Very quiet and nice place overall. The breakfast is honestly second to none. Amazing time and atmosphere.

This inn is off the beaten path, but provides quiet and relaxation. My room, Vincent's Hideway, was so nice. It was on the third floor and offered a VERY quiet place to rest after a long day of antiquing and walking. The breakfasts served by Eric were amazing!!! Each meal was absolutely wonderful. The inn is very clean and comfortable. The wine and cheese socials offered us a chance to get to know other inn guests and relax with each other. It was also so nice to walk outside and be greeted by at least one deer each time, and often times several would be grazing close by. I would definitely consider this inn again.

I booked a last minute for labor day and overall it was a very nice stay. I ended up getting the smallest room, which was a bit disappointing, plus no TV, but I should have seen that from the room review. They did however attempt to upgrade me, though all other rooms were booked. So in the future I would look for a bigger room. Other than that, great service, beautiful main building and the grounds are very quiet and comfortable. Very tasty breakfast and an overall comfortable atmosphere.

Chimney Hill is a lovely place to stay in the countryside less than 1 mile from downtown Lambertville. It was very quiet even though the place was full. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was tasty, with a "dish of the day" or eggs as an alternate. Terry is a delightful innkeeper, and the alpacas are a hoot!

dining was not applicable, however the recommendations given were fantastic
4.4 on September 12, 2011
We loved this B&B. The Inn was beautiful, our room was lovely and comfy, and the breakfast was delicious. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and peaceful and feeding the alpacas was a real treat! The location is great! Lambertville is such a quaint historical town which is just a short walk over the bridge from New Hope, PA - another fabulous town. We rode our bikes on the tow path which runs along the canal and we rode around Washington's Crossing park on the way home. We had a wonderful week-end!

We had a wonderful stay and thought that Terry and Richard did an excellent job of welcoming us, providing area information and delicious breakfasts each morning. The room was lovely but thought the bed throw was a little worn and should be replaced.
4.6 on September 07, 2011
Terry, the proprietor could not have been more accommodating - the house was spotless and they could not have done more to make our stay outstanding - the little perks were unnecessary and delightful. It could not have been a better weekend
5 on September 07, 2011
I stayed here for the labor day weekend 9/4 - 9/6/11 and it was great. The people were very nice and the service was outstanding. I stayed at Barn Suite #1 and the room was very unexpected cause it was so nice. Food great, Room great, Staff very very friendly, and mainly everything is great but nothing is bad at all. Would recommend to everybody and would stay again.
4.8 on September 06, 2011
We stayed at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn for two nights but I wish we could have stayed much longer! We had a wonderful time and every aspect of our visit exceeded our expectations - the service was exceptional, the breakfasts were delicious, Terry was so knowledgeable, helpful and sweet, the alpacas were adorable, and of course, the rooms were spectacular. We stayed in Barn Suite #3 and I highly recommend it - I loved the fireplace, comfortable seating, the jacuzzi, and the decorations really pulled it all together to make you feel like you were deep in farm country - yet it's only 1.5 hours from NYC! 5 Stars! Thanks for everything, -Vickie and Rob, NYC

The best way to describe this very special place is by equating it to being invited to a close friend's or relatives home for the weekend. First, the place is immaculately spotless, warm and very inviting. We pulled up and were greeted with smiles and genuine waves of welcome even though we had never met any of them in person. It was a cold weekend and it felt so comforting when we first arrived and found a wine and cheese spread just waiting for their guests in their stone room in front of a warm fire. Terry, Rich and Deb were all so personable and made us feel very comfortable. The main house is very nicely decorated and you are informed right away of their open door policy to their refrigerator or pantry as well as an emergency drawer with supplies and a fresh batch of homemade cookies. Deb was just a pleasure to meet and talk to in person. We had a wonderful dinner experience at Italian Cuccina in New Hope which came recommended by Deb. It certainly added to the intimacy of our weekend stay. The next morning we walked over from our barn suite for breakfast in their elegant dining room area where beautifully adorned individual tables were set with fresh coffee, orange juice and the most delicious home made breakfast made to order. Terry's genuine smile and inviting conversation just makes you feel at home and ease. We enjoyed meeting the sweet natured alpacas and loved the smart choice of offering a small store onsite with some very nice and affordable products made from the wool of the alpacas. We loved the overall experience of this place and feel very fortunate to have stayed in such a wonderful place and meeting such lovely people. We have very fond memories which we will cherish for quite sometime and hope to return some day in the future. Thank you Deb, Terry, Rich and Chimney Hill staff!

My husband and I stayed the weekend of Hurricane Irene! Our stay was wonderful despite the weather. The staff was so accomodating and were a delight to be with. The Inn was beautiful and incredibly comfortable. Our stay was incredibly relaxing, just what we needed. We will be going back soon, hopefully with no hurricane!!!!

Chimney Hill Estate Inn is an extremely well run, hansom inn in a quiet part of Lambertville, NJ. We were impressed by the intimate interior put together with taste and elegance. The inn is a pleasure to be in. Staff is extremely polite and the owner of the inn is pleasant. Upon arrival we were given a local map with recommendation for food, shops, biking, etc. Did not have to ask a single question! Out trip was one of these unexpected getaways that tern out to be very restful without any glitches. The inn was a big part of the success and our enjoyment. Surrounding area is wonderful for strolling around in New Hope, PA as well as Lambertville, NJ. There are plenty of small shops and a beautiful easy biking path along old canal.

Stayed there this past weekend with my girlfriend, 8/26/11-8/28/11 in Barn Suite #3. Had our Hurricane Irene party there. :) Room was incredible. Staff friendly. Food amazing. Terry helped us out finding local activities. Overall, a wonderful experience. Would recommend to anyone. Can't wait to come back.

We absolutely loved the place and will return again in the future!

This inn is one of the most beautiful that we have stayed in (and there have been many!). When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that we were being upgraded to a more expensive room. (Apparently the inn was not full.) Our room was absolutely lovely, although the "private bath" could only be accessed by the hall. Lovely complimentary robes and a quiet hallway made this no problem. Breakfast was a culinary delight. Eric and Terry were both extremely helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this inn.
4.0 on August 29, 2011
We stayed here after our wedding and it was wonderful! The alpacas and llamas were a big part of that. Alpacas! The breakfast was absolutely phenomenal; I don't believe I've ever had french toast that was that good before. The room was clean and cozy and very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back!
4.4 on August 22, 2011
They need to invest in some pillows. The pillows in our room were flat as pancakes and very uncomfortable. Other than that this B&B was great.
5 on August 20, 2011
The staff was welcoming and wonderful, the accommodations were beautiful. We had a great stay and would recommend Chimney Hill to anyone looking to just get away...
4.6 on August 17, 2011
I had a wonderful stay at Chimney Hill. Terry is charming, the Inn is warm and relaxing, and the alpacas are adorable! I highly recommend staying here and enjoying the area - hiking, antiquing, and many moments of quiet.
5 on August 10, 2011
It was the best. Everyone was so kind and friendly. The main house is beautiful and very inviting for relaxing in the stone room. the breakfast food was a culinary delight and presented like a gourmet meal. loved every minute.
5 on August 10, 2011
My wife and I had a great time. The room was excellent the grounds were beautiful the Alpacas were so cute. The breakfast was to die for!!!. We greeted every day with a big smile and a good morning. Lambertville and New Hope has so much History and Shops that you lose track of time. We will be back again in the near future.
4.6 on August 07, 2011
Was greeted with a warm smile the second we pulled into the driveway. The inn keepers went above and beyond to make sure we were happy, the rooms were spacious and the beds extremely comfortable. Each morning there was delicious home cooked breakfast, which far exceeded my expectations in quality. Overall this was a great place to stay, with wonderful atmosphere, service and food. The nearby towns were also excellent locations for dining and walking; with live music in almost every restaurant and bar, plus free fireworks!

Chimney Hill is lovely and our room was nice, but we've stayed in other b & bs that were just as nice or better but much less expensive. The owners weren't available during our stay, but Eric, who was in charge, was a good and helpful host, as well as an excellent and accomodating cook.
Thank you for your comments! We really put alot of love and care into our guests and keep our lovely Estate and Alpacas as perfect as can be. We all would like to see lower prices, but we pay an extreme amount of property taxes just to stay opened as a Bed and Breakfast in Hunterdon County NJ. We really try hard to provide a wonderful experience and are happy that you enjoyed your stay . Thank You
5 on August 03, 2011
From the minute we were greeted at the door, our stay was pure pleasure. In fact, arriving a few minutes later than anticipated, we received a phone call en route to inquire if everything was ok. Such a beautiful place -- another great New Jersey treasure.

Relaxing and romantic. Spectacular service. Delicious food. Quiet and comfortable.
4.6 on August 01, 2011
Visited Chimney Hill (and the new Hope, PA area) with my family last weekend. Stayed 3 days, a mini vacation. Had a spectacular time. It's a beautiful property. The innkeeper and her staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room and entire property were full of antiques. Breakfast was gourmet and lovely. We could feed the llamas and alpacas. Forgive me for gushing but it was a great time. Bob Isaacson

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast, and to say we were blown away is an understatement. We were met by Eric when we first arrived, and he did a magnificent job of welcoming us and giving us a rundown of Chimney Hill and the surrounding area. Eric was also the one making breakfast every morning, which were great (even though I'm not a big breakfast person). Later we met Terry, one of the owners, who, like Eric, always had the time to give us advice about the area or share information about the estate. We chose to stay in their "Tapestry" room, which was exactly what we were looking for. Some of the other rooms had such amenities as a jacuzzi, which we were tempted by, but we were very happy with where we stayed. Perhaps, on our next visit, we'll stay in one of the jacuzzi rooms. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Chimney Hill is located near Lambertville and New Hope, which provides plenty of things to do. The only complaint we had (though "complaint" is too strong of a word), is that some of the information they had about things to do around town was dated. A few of the things they had listed in their welcome book no longer exist as businesses. We would definitely recommend the Chimney Hill Estate to anyone!
5 on August 01, 2011
Thank you for a wonderful stay! We had a terrific time at Chimney Hill Estate and highly recommend this beautiful bed and breakfast to anyone. The staff is especially friendly and the surroundings are exquisite!

Eric was a outstanding host, making sure every little detail was taken care of. The small outside deck was beautiful. We were able to see deer in the woods. My wife loved the Apacas. The small bistro table outside did need to be cleaned.

Very cool house with adorable alpacas! Friendly staff, comfy beds, and the most delicious quiche I've ever had. Highly recommend!
3.4 on July 13, 2011
My Wife Mary and I got a "last minute getaway" at Chimney Hill Estate Inn---we stayed over a Saturday night, in the smallest, hence most affordable, room the Buttercup. It was a very pleasant overnight---Eric, the "Master of All Trades" was as polite and as accommodating as could be...his French toast Sunday morning was delicious! The alpacas/llamas were endearing...a nice stay!
4.2 on July 11, 2011
This is a very conveniently located country inn close to both downtown Lambertville and New Hope. Our room was spacious and very nice, although the air conditioner needs updating. We were in the midst of a heat wave and it never got cool enough until morning. The breakfast was delicious and Eric was very accomodating with any changes anyone wanted to make. Nice touches like home made cookies and sherry available. Two nice common areas for relaxing. The alpacas and llamas were adorable.
5 on July 03, 2011
Our stay was fantastic, we never realized this beautiful place was only 40 minutes from our home. The rooms, service, and grounds were better than advertised.We booked through Living Social, so we didn't know much going in.Beside the Alpacca Farm, there are also deer roaming the grounds. Perhaps what may have made our stay the best though was Eric. He catered to every detail no matter how small. His breakfasts were excellent, as well as his information about the area and anything else we needed. We would recommend this Inn to anyone looking for the most relaxing, yet fun time, not to mention New Hope and Lambertville only minutes away. The Tini's - Levittown, Pa.

Lovely grounds, barn suite room was amazing and very romantic. Staff was super nice!
5 on July 02, 2011
My wife and I stayed here previously and had such a great time, we returned within 2-weeks to book a 1-night stay (which the owner was more than accommodating). The location is perfect, a quick 3 minute drive to Lambertville and 5 to New Hope but far enough away that you feel like you could be in the woods of some remote Adirondack town. The owners and staff are great, the sitting room is something I wish I could re-create in my own imaginary mountain house. We'll be back many times - for sure.
4.2 on July 01, 2011
The room was extremely clean and the service was wonderful! The alpacas were fun to feed and watch. The in room jacuzzi was also a plus.

Perfect weekend getaway! ... Main house is stunningly beautiful .. breakfast was deliciously served in an 1820s colonial dining room ... Barn Suite #3 was perfectly decorated and exceptionally clean. The grounds are serene and beautiful ... two picturesque towns of Lambertville, NJ and Hew Hope, PA are minutes away. Chris & Lydia H.

We recently returned to the Chimney Hill Estate for our annual gathering. We have been coming back for years, and Terry and her staff are always gracious, kind and accommodating. As usual, we had last minute changes, and actually came with more guests than we had originally booked rooms. The Chimney Hill Estate was pretty full, but Terry was able to offer a larger suite that had two bedrooms. This last-minute additional guest might have flustered another inn-keeper, but not Terry. Terry made the switch and welcomed us with open arms – and bottles of wine! The Inn itself is so inviting, well maintained and whimsical. The breakfast was so delicious and plentiful! Each room boasts a different theme. Throughout the Inn and the newly renovated barn – there is a sense of serenity and beauty. You must visit the alpacas as well! We definitely recommend this Inn, and know all of the guests will be treated as warmly as we were!
4.2 on June 22, 2011
A wonderful place to stay while enjoying the great towns of New Hope and Lambertville. Great Food, Great Service and cute Alpacas. Would definitely recommend this place to travelers!
4.6 on June 16, 2011
We needed a weekend away and it was wonderful! We had the Garden room, it was so private and cozy, we loved every minute of our stay! We also loved our alpaca experience, there was a baby alpaca born five days before we arrived. Will definitely return.
5 on June 14, 2011
We found this B&B during a Living Social promotion and am so happy we did. This was my husbands and I first stay at a B&B and what a first impression. Eric (one of the innkeepers) was friendly, personable and just too sweet for words. The room was clean and comfy, the house was homey and the alpacas were cute as can be. Breakfast was delicious and the wine and cheese layout during the afternoon was a nice way to relax. I recommend the Tapestry room due to its spacious lay out and outside patio! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning.

We recently stayed here via the LivingSocial.com ad. I purchased it as a birthday adventure for my boyfriend. We were supposed to stay in one of the Premium Barn Suites, but were put in one of the smaller Garden Rooms due to a few hiccups in the booking process; apparently I never made a reservation with the Inn itself and the staff didn't know we were coming because I thought that giving the dates to LivingSocial was making our reservation. I even called to confirm our stay and had a confirmation with the owner herself. Unfortunately, another person who has the same first name as me bought the same package as me and came at the same date (even though there were no other cars in the driveway during our entire stay). When the hiccups had happened, the owner called to explain all of this, was a bit frustrated, called one of her staff, Eric, to help us, and told us to make a reservation with the inn immediately with "whatever your last name is" very sarcastically. Thank you, Eric, for your generosity and hospitality. Thank you, Mrs. Anderson, for your sarcasm and calling Eric to help us. I will not thank you, however, for your hospitality. As for the room, the alpacas, and the Inn... I have no real complaints. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the shower had hot water, and the bathroom came with shampoo, conditioner, and a bar of soap. We saw and fed the alpacas with grass (because we never received our feed sack that I paid for), and they were darling. The Inn was ghostly. Not one other personnel was there at night. At 2:30pm the next day, we saw Eric tend to the alpacas. We left to see New Hope, PA for the day and when we came back, not one soul was there, and decided that we wanted to leave the Inn a night early. We left the key in the living room. There was not a single soul on the premises at 6:00pm. No staff and no guests, just the ghosts whom were occupying all the rooms. All in all, this place is not worth the time or money.
Hi Folks, This young lady had no reservation with us , and never made a reservation at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. Basically she arrived at the Inn at 8pm without notice and called confused to find out why she could not get into the Estate House. Our Reservation Service called me as they were also very confused and they were having difficulty understanding what the person was trying to say. Reservations looked and could not find her name in our reservation system. As a result I personally called her to find out what was the situation. She explained that she purchased a Social Living Coupon- Paid Social Living and thought she could just arrive and lodging without notice. I then explained that the Social Living Coupon has specific instructiond and indicates that the purchaser has to make a reservation with our Inn and then the coupon is applied as payment. Even though she had no reservation we made a Estate Suite available for her to check in and offered a Barn Suite for the next day. They never came to breakfast and never made any contact with us during the business hours. Maybe that is why they never saw anyone here. PS : We have had many Social Living Guests who just the love the promotion and have made reservations to come back for another visit soon. I am very sorry that this couple did not enjoy the exceptional value and miss the joy of their experience.

My husband and I stayed at Chimney Hill to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful time. He and I are vegetarians and Terry tried very hard to accomodate our needs at breakfast. She was charming and a wonderful hostess. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were clean and well tended. Feeding the alpacas and llamas was so much fun! I would gladly stay there again in the future.
4.6 on June 09, 2011
We stayed at your beautiful condo in Barefoot Landing, Myrtle Beach. The accomodations were lovely overlooking the pool and plenty of space to relax in. It was very convenient to anything we wanted to do, the beach, restaurants, activities, etc. And after a day of activity, it was just nice to come back to lounge around the pool. Although we are not golfers, I understand the golf course is wonderful. It was great going out to eat but also just having a few things available in the kitchen and throw on a load of laundry while lounging around. I would highly recommend this to anyone with the 3 bedrooms and 3 baths a family would have plenty of room to enjoy!
5 on June 07, 2011
For a "Girls' Weekend", Chimney Hill was PERFECT! We had the common meeting place with our sleeping areas near by, and 2 full baths. The outside deck with seating, overlooking the alpacas was very relaxing! There was enough to do nearby but we did enjoy just relaxing in and around the lovely home and grounds. Eric was a real find! Everyone was so pleasant!
4.8 on June 06, 2011
A serendipity was being at Chimney Hill Estates when the Alpacas had their yearly shearing. It was very interesting and the wool is wonderfully soft. The funniest part was the sheared males, who, while waiting for the others, looked like they couldn't tell who was who without their heavy winter coats!
4.8 on June 06, 2011
One word captures it. Wonderful! The room we were in was roomy, airy and filled with light. It had a wonderful cozy andwarm feel. Minor drawbacks are that there is little counter space for preparing food, and the spiral staircase may not be for everyone, especially if you have knee problems. Also, the bedroom is upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs which, if you get up in the middle of the night may be a challenge. The breakfasts were delicious and freshly prepared. The setting is just idyllic - a reminder of just how beautiful New Jersey can be if you know where to look. Oh! The alpacas are also a treat! All in all we would hartily recommend the Chimney Hill Estate Inn. Joe and Mim

My wife and I stayed memorial day 2011. Stayed in the butter cup room, this room was a nice surprise because not only did it have outdoor space but it also had a Huge dining/lounge room that is not mentioned on their website but you will get it as well and it is a private room to anyone who stays in the buttercup room. The inn itself has the main house which is open 24 hrs with wine and snacks. Breakfast was great and made to order when we asked. If you have old vhs tapes you should bring them to watch a movie or bring an ipad there is no cable tv-but i guess that Shouldn't be expected at a b and b.....all in all It's a great location if your looking to visit new hope or any of the surrounding dining,shopping,river fun etc etc...

4.2 on May 25, 2011
We just returned from a lovely weekend stay at Chimney Hill Estate. I would highly recommend the inn to anyone looking for a romantic, peaceful stay. The main house is gorgeous and comfortable. We stayed in Barn Suite 2, which was nice, but not quite as nice as the main part of the inn. We really enjoyed our own private patio and we appreciated having television in the room. The only complaint would be the air conditioning; it kicks on and off (loudly) throughout the night and when it was off, the room became unbearably hot and still. I am a sensitive sleeper and would awaken throughout the night as a result. A small portable fan, or better yet, a ceiling fan, would improve things dramatically. The inn keeper, Teri, could not have been nicer. When we arrived later than planned because of traffic, I was secretly disappointed we had missed the wine and cheese offered. Reading my mind, Teri immediately poured us a lovely glass of wine before we had even checked in. She made every effort to make us feel at home and comfortable throughout the weekend and served marvelous breakfasts each morning. The alpacas on the property are really cool too. Overall, a wonderful place to stay (and New Hope is simply fantastic!)
4.4 on May 24, 2011
Eric, the innkeeper, was pleasant and very accomodating. The facility is charming, beautiful and restful. The owner was friendly and very hands on. We very much enjoyed our first stay at a bed and breakfast. It most certainly will not be our last. Thanks

We were looking to have a long weekend getaway and stay at a bed & breakfast, so we did some research and found The Chimney Hill Estate Inn. This place stood out above the rest, because of their beautiful alpacas & llamas. It is a charming & quaint place that we cannot wait to visit again. We didn't want to leave! It is tucked away for peace & quiet, but extremely close to tons of restaurants, antique places, shopping, winery, and much more. This is the place to come to melt away your stress and feel at ease in the lovely rooms, service, amazing full breakfast, wildlife, and much more. Donna & Elise will highly be recommending this place to everyone we know and we will be returning as often as we can. We have found our Heaven on Earth here!

This is now the 2nd time that my husband and I spent the weekend at the Chimney Hill Inn and it was a great experience both times. The rooms are wonderful, the service and food are great and the location is also great. Plan to spend some time walking around New Hope, PA, which is just minutes away. Wonderful restaurants in the area just added to our great time. We will definitely be back. Thanks to Terry, Richard, Eric and everyone else for our great time. We hope to see you again soon.
5 on May 11, 2011
This was a great stay where we had gotten married previously. Our host remebered us from our previous stay and treated us like old friends. We'll definitely be back! John
4.2 on May 07, 2011
Very relaxing, The Stone Room was so comfy; nice to just relax and enjoy ambiance with soothing music in background, and a book. Eric our inn keeper was extremely pleasant and enjoyable to talk with. Room (Tapestry) was suprisingly larger than expected.
4.6 on May 02, 2011
Terry and crew were great! The Llamas and Alpacas were terrific. Can't wait to go back!
4.2 on April 29, 2011
The inn is lovely and located on large, quiet grounds. We arrived after official check-in but there was no difficulty as we'd simply let them know in advance and arrangements were made. Additionally, we were very pleasantly surprised to learn that Terry had "upgraded" us to a more spacious room (thanks, Terry!). Eric's breakfasts were delicious and both he and Terry contributed to good morning conversations. We'd stayed at Chimney Hill previously and look forward to returning some day!

Chimney Hill Inn is charming and gracious, a wonderful place to relax and refresh. We are certain to return. Richard and Mary Vannucci

Our first visit here ... great time, great atmosphere, wonderful breakfast, and Eric was very accomodating and friendly. It was an impromptu getaway with friends and we were so delighted with the serenity and beautiful surroundings. Even the alpacas kept us entertained. Don't miss the Zsa Zsa gift shop on the grounds! There were lots of great restaurants within walking distance and its just a quick trip into Pennsylvania to the Peddlers Village. We ate dinner at the Hamilton Grill and truly enjoyed our meal. We will definitely be recommending Chimney Hill to our friends!

My husband and I stayed at the Chimney Hill B&B and could not have had a better time! The breakfast was wonderful. The room was beautiful. We can't wait to go back! I highly recommend it.

I was only looking for a quick night away with my wife. I was glad to see that we could check in at any hour as we had decided to have a late dinner and some dancing. I was very pleased with the gentlemen who showed us our room as he upgraded me when I thought our room was too small and was very pleasent. Unfortunately the room put us next to the owner who must have been a light sleeper. When me and my wife decided to go to bed we made a little too much noise due to the bed being too close to the wall. We were interepted twice and decided to leave before breakfast as to not upset her anymore. Due to this I would not stay here again or recommend this place to anyone who was not really old and did not want much of a romantic getaway.
This is a beautiful respite and our guests look forward to the peace, quiet and enjoyment that we offer at the Estate. These Guests offered an unfortunate situation. This couple , although very nice , partied loudly till 4am. We received 2 phone calls from the other neighboring Barn Suite Guests who were disturbed in their sleep about the noise problem. I asked this couple twice if they could please keep the noise level down and not to smoke in our rooms. They thought that too big a request and did leeave before breakfast. We were gracious and did not charge the smoking fee and we had to appoligize to the other guests who were kept up all night. We understand having fun and staying up late, but constant loud noise, heavy partys and smoking are not what we offer here. Sorry Folks.

This was our third stay at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. Terry is a wonderful hostess and the breakfast is outstanding! We were upgraded to a barn suite and it was wonderful! We loved the jacuzzi in the room. Our favorite spot in the inn is the room with the stone fireplace. Sitting by the fire with a glass of wine and our books is a perfect way to unwind! Thanks again for the hospitality!

we had a wonderful stay at the Inn. The staff was very attentive and helpful - the Innkeeper upgraded us to a beautiful suite. The entire BnB was very clean. The living room had a huge fireplace where they served wine and cheese. All in all - they have a great attention to details and create a very relaxing atmosphere. We highly recommend Chimney Hill.

Breakfast was fair. Not very good and very little choice--everything had sausage and the potatoes were cold. The place was beautiful, rooms clean and nice. Wine by the fireplace at 4 was a nice touch. The Alpacas are fun.

First, let me say that Eric was great! He provided exceptional service. But..... "Private bath" turned out to mean in the hall, not part of the room. Shower curtain had mildew stains and someone else's hair was on the shower floor. Bedroom had burnt out lightbulbs (Eric took care of all of this upon request). Our friends arrived late to find no towels in their room. Breakfast was good but unimaginative--cheese omlet one morning, blueberry pancakes the next, cold bacon both days. For over $300/night, I thought it was more expensive and less value than other B&Bs we've stayed at. This was the first and last B&B experience for our friends, unfortunately.
So sorry to hear this review. I did go away, my mother in law was ill and I went to stay with her in Hospice and through funeral. Please accept my appology for this service. I would offer you to call me and I will make an adjustment to your lodging bill. I hope this will ease you discomfort. Warmly, Terry Anderson

We had a wonderful stay! The staff is very pleasant and strives to ensure you enjoy your stay. The breakfasts were delicious, the room more lovely than advertised, the grounds restful and serene, and the daily fires in the sitting room before breakfast were a treat. I've been home for a week and am ready to go back!

Spent 4 nights in one of the barn suites, and not only was the main house and the suite exceptional, but the service was amazing. The innkeeper and entire staff (especially Eric) were extremely helpful and friendly, and constantly made sure that we had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again

Chimney Hill Estate was recommended to me by several friends. I heard nothing but great reviews and I can not add to the list of great reviews. My girlfriend and I needed to arrive after the check-in time because of work. This was not a problem with the Inn and they were very accommodating to our schedules. We stayed in Barn Suite #2 and were immediately impressed with the size and cleanliness of the room. It had everything we needed. I booked the room over the phone and spoke with a very helpful representative. When I arrived, I was greeted by a very kind gentleman who showed us to our room and explained how everything in the room worked. (Fireplace, heat lamp in bathroom, jets in tub, etc.) He was also the individual who cooked our breakfast and greeted us in the morning. Breakfast was amazing! Plenty of fresh juice, coffee, and food. I did not spend much time in the main house as our room was in a separate area, but it was very welcoming for the time that we did spend. I will definitely be back for another stay later in the year.

We booked a room in "the barn" at Chimney Hill Estate Inn for the evening of our wedding in October 2010. We arrived very late, so an express check-in was arranged for us. No paperwork, just here is the key and congratulations. Perfect. In the room, everything was sparkling clean. It had a warm, cozy and welcoming feel with a mix of luxury and rustic charm. There was a hot tub with fluffy towels and robes, a fireplace in the middle of the room, and loft-style bedroom at the top of a winding staircase. What a relaxing way to end a long day. In the morning, the phone rang to tell us breakfast was on the way. A lovely breakfast was brought to our room - juice, milk, coffee, potatoes, a gourmet egg & vegetable creation and more. Delightful and delicious - it made us so happy! Normally breakfast is held in the common area, but because it was our wedding night we received a special in-room breakfast service. When we stepped outside, the pleasing smell of burning wood was in the air all around. We could see alpacas and lamas nearby behind a fence. We went into the main house where they gave us feed for the animals. It was so much fun feeding them! The main house was charming and spectacular. It was warm (as were the people who work there), great music was playing, and everything was dressed up for the holidays. The style of the house and the decorative details made us feel like we stepped back in time. After check-out (they allowed us to arrange a 1-hour late check-out since we arrived so late the evening before), we went to a nearby spa that Chimney Hill had recommended for a soothing and relaxing experience. From beginning to end, the people at Chimney Hill were so genuinely kind and helpful to us. We couldn't have asked for more. We'll carry the joyful memories of our stay at Chimney Hill for the rest of our lives. We plan to go back there on our wedding anniversaries. Thanks for everything Chimney Hill Estate Inn. See you again soon! R&A 10-22-10.

My wife and I stayed at Chimney Hill on New Year's Eve. We had a great time. We especially like the wine and warm apetizers that were served at 5:00pm. It is a very comfortable B&B. Also, the Alpacas are great. The only downside was that the room was too hot.

I found this bed and breakfast on line and the reviews could not have been more spot on. Only an hour and a half away and you felt like you were out in the country. I could have Terry's French Toast daily and not get tired of it.

I really enjoyed staying at this historic inn in Lambertville, NJ, just across the Delaware from tony Bucks County Pa. The innkeeper is very intelligent and a warm and caring person. Her love for her alpaca herd of thirteen animals is apparent. The herd is accessible to guests to see and enjoy, even feed. The inn is very nicely appointed, clean and easy on the eyes. The staff is top notch and helpful. Away from the hustle and bustle of tourist-heavy Lambertville, the inn is quiet and restful. Complimentary wine and cheese is served some evenings.

My husband and I were looking for a different way to bring in the New Year and relax. And we found it. What a find! We were so pleased with our 3 day stay. We were treated so well from the moment we arrived until our departure. Terry was so gracious and hospitable and Eric was a gem. Breakfast was awesome. We were able to meet some lovely people sitting by the fireplace or have private time in our room. Terry gave us a map of restaurants so we were able to find wonderful places to eat dinner. We look forward to returning soon.

My husband and I went to Chimney Hill Inn for one night between Christmas and New Year's Eve. We were welcome very kindly. The owner even updated us to a more expensive room at no charge. Unfortunately our new room was right above the sitting room, so we felt we didn't have privacy until the other guests turned in. However, the room was beautiful, and clean, and we were very kindly treated. Eric, the inn keeper we had contact with was very polite and obliging, and everything about the experience "hit the spot".The inn is in the middle of rolling hills, a short way away from the noisy but charming Lambertville. We were able to come and go as we wished, and Eric even left some Cream Sherry and snacks in the butler's pantry for us to enjoy late at night. He cooked an outstanding breakfast the next day. We both felt very good about our experience there and we highly recommend the place.

Lovely inn, gracious innkeeper, friendly staff. Lambertville is a great town that has a lot to offer. Needs more attention to detail. Found trash in our room, hairdryer was missing, should offer real milk with coffee in pantry, moisturizer with bath products would be nice, and there was no bath salt or bubble bath provided for jacuzzi.
Thank you for your comments. We are sorry this happened in your room. Our staff is available to offer and bring any missing item to you, but we need to be notified when this happens and we will respond immediately. We do not provide salts or bubble products for the jacuzzi tubs. Again, thank you for youo comments. They are appreciated and we will try hard to meet your expectations always.

The inn is a most special place , a beautiful 1800's house with 2 grand rooms each with fireplaces to sit and have a glass of wine and relax. The innkeepers are like staying with old friends and are so accomadating.Breakfast was great and my daughter and I are on special diets and Deb made our breakfasts to order.The rooms are spotless and the grounds are beautiful, your in the country but only a few miles from 2 very quaint and charming towns, Lambertville NJ and New Hope PA. The hosts Richard , Terry and Deb were so accomodating. Great Inn , wonderful Service.

I'm not familiar with Lambertville/New Hope, so felt I was really taking my chances relying on a website before booking a getaway for my wife's birthday. We were so pleased with everything. The inn has a charm that exceded expectations. Rooms all tastefully decorated, very clean, and comfortable. The owners--very enjoyable to talk with--offering great recommendations and pulling some strings for dinner reservations. Breakfast -- wine and cheese--first rate. We are looking forward to returning again, perhaps with some friends or family. A+

This was mine and my husband's first time staying at a B&B and we were not disappointed. We chose the Chimney Hill mainly because they were one of the only B&B's to allow a 1 night stay on a Friday night. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and the Chimney Hill was the perfect romantic getaway we wanted. We stayed in barn suite #2 which was really cozy and rustic. The service was unbelievable and we are still talking about the delicious breakfast we had. Wine and cheese in the stone room was also alot of fun, we met alot of great couples. We enjoyed our stay so much that I bought a gift certificate for my parents. We look forward to going back, hopefully this spring.

To start, I have never stayed at a BNB but through friends, I know what to expect and Chimney Hill met on all points. The estate is picturesque and from the moment we arrived, we were courted with friendly smiles and service. The estate is conveniently located within a few minutes of New Hope and 15 minutes from Lahaska so convenient to restaurants and shopping. From the moment we left, we are counting the days for when we can come back. I strongly recommend Chimney Hill Estates!

The Chimney Hill is a lovely place to stay if you're looking for somewhere in the Lambertville/New Hope region. The location is fantastic, just minutes from town. The common areas are pretty and comfortable, particularly the "stone room" where they serve wine and cheese on the weekends. The host was fantastically helpful and friendly, and seemed to genuinely like her guests, and had good recommendations for dinners and things to do in the area. I marked the rooms down a bit. A heavy focus of the decor is greenery, but every single plant in our room (Barn Suite 4) and in the Inn, I believe, was fake. Some might think that plastic plants don't require as much care as live ones, but if you don't dust them? Well, it would be a close call between whether a dying real plant or a dusty fake plant was more depressing. Also, the steam function on our shower didn't work, and the bedding was pretty inadequate (just one thin blanket and two pretty rock hard pillows). That said, we enjoyed the jacuzzi and the room was generally quite nice.
Thank you for your comments and taking the time for a review. Our Barn Suite 4 is extremely popular and we have many repeat guests who only ask for that specific room. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and our service. We really care greatly for our guests and their comfort. The steam unit has been intentionally disconnected for safety reasons. We will put fluffy pillows on the bed and a heavier blanket now that we are in the cooler season. Thank you and we hope to see you again!

This was our first time to Chimney Hill. It was for my wife's birthday (weekend). We had a fantastic time. The grounds were beautiful and serene. Deb was phenomenal. Very personable and went out of her way to make you feel "taken care of" and at home. For me specifically, from the moment I first called, it was apparent that Deb was willing to go above and beyond to ensure that our stay was special. She asked questions, made special arrangements for us with dinner and a wine and chocoale presentation set up in our room for my wife...I didn't have to do a thing. Deb, thanks to you and your "staff" for facilitating for my wife and I a very, special visit. We so appreciate it and will return!

I stayed at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn on Oct. 1, 2010, for one night as a last minute get-a-way. Upon booking, I was a tad bit apprehensive, as I was travelling alone, but upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised at the warmth, charm, character and serenity of the Chimney Hill. The grounds are meticulously kept. The alpacas were a nice treat and as peaceful and serene as the property itself. In the distance, I saw a doe and her fawns on the property also enjoying the peaceful calm. My room (the Buttercup Room) was small and quaint, complete with a private patio w/a cast iron table and two chairs, and private bath was just perfect for me! The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable as I tucked myself in under the luxurious comforter to watch a little TV, I was warm and cozy and fast asleep. Upon checking out the next morning, Terry (owner) and Deb (assistant) insisted I stay for breakfast and after grabbing a whiff and stealing a sight of the Cranberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast, I could not move until my palate was sated. I sat down to a perfect cup of coffee and banana parfait while waiting to be served. One bite into the french toast and only one word will ever come to mind when revisiting my breakfast experience at the Chimney Hill... AMAZING!!!! Terry and Deb really made me feel welcome. They possess a warmth and people quality that is rarely felt in today's time and is reminiscent of a magical time of long ago. Thank you Chimney Hill for a peaceful and delightful stay! I have stayed at several other Bed & Breakfasts in the Lambertville/New Hope area, one of which is rated a AAA 4 Diamond resort for triple the cost and this is the BEST Bed and Breakfast in which I have ever stayed by FAR!!!
Thank you so very much for your kind review. We are especially thoughtful of our guests traveling alone. You were a delight to chat with and I hope you can come for another visit with us again soon! Warm Regards,Terry

My wife and I got a night's get-a-way at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn and loved it! Terry and Debbie were great, the room was fabulous and the night was one to remember as we head into a busy fall. Minutes from downtown Lambertville and New Hope we had a great wine tasting and tapas at the Lambertville Station and walked the bridge into New Hope for some coffee. The Barn Suite we stayed in was just beautiful. All in all, we'd go back!
Thank you, we appreciate your kind words. Please come back soon! Terry and Deb

A convenient location for visiting quaint local towns and interesting covered bridges. A warm welcome and refreshments offered on arrival. A guests' pantry was made available for drinks and refreshments which was useful. Also a coffee maker in the bedroom. The breakfast was very good, individually served at seperate tables. The bed and bed linen was of good quality but unfortunately the mattress protector made for a sweaty night's sleep. This spoiled an otherwise very pleasant stay.

Chimney Hill was just fantastic. The B & B was one of the nicest we've stayed at, with the picturesque gardens and Alpacas enhancing the scene. We were in the Tapestry room, part of the original 1820 structure, nicely outfitted and with a balcony. The historic house was immaculate, not a spec of dust or dirt to be found. Breakfasts were set in a lovely room and were delicious. What really made our stay special were our innkeepers’, Terry and Rich. We've never seen more hospitable, friendly, and helpful innkeepers. Visiting Lambertville was a nice getaway.
Wow! a real 5 star rating :0)!! That is exciting! Rich and I work hard with our staff to see this type of review, and it is worth all the effort. Thank you so very much!

I booked a one night trip to the Chimney Hill Inn for my boyfriend's birthday. This was our first experience at a B&B and I must admit it was a great place to begin. The pictures on the website do not do this place justice. It is a charming and beautiful location, far enough away from the the city to avoid all the noise but close enough to walk. Terry greeted us immediately upon our arrival and showed us around the house. She is absolutely wonderful! After checking us in, she took the time to show us a map of the town (and New Hope) and all of the local places that we may want to visit. I found this to be charming and very helpful as we were new to the area. I was surprised when she offered to upgrade our room to one of their amazing barn suites! The room itself was perfect for an overnight stay, equipped with a fridge, fireplace, tv, whirlpool bathtub (absolutely wonderful), and living space for a sofa and dining table. An extra special touch is that our upgrade allowed us to have was breakfast in bed. Terry was very gracious and brought breakfast to our room. The breakfast was amazing, it is something you simply can't miss it! Overall, our 1st stay at a B&B could not have been more perfect! Special thank you to Terry and Richard for such a wonderful experience! We have recommended family and friends come visit you as well!
Thank you for the review. We appreciate your business and always strive to make our guests feel wonderful and welcome!

Just spent 3 days at the Chimney Hill Estate Inn celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary. The inn and the property it sits on are absolutely charming. The morning breakfast was spectacular - probably the best breakfasts we have ever enjoyed in an inn. But honestly, the best part of the whole experience were the welcoming and knowledgeable innkeepers. We were sorry to leave! Marina and John, Scarsdale, NY

Upon our arrival at Chimney Hill Estate Inn, we were informed that we had been given a free upgrade. Our suite was beautiful: we were able to enjoy the two-person jaccuzzi tub while a fire crackled in the fireplace. At night, we enjoyed our four poster bed in the loft bedroom. The accomodations were clean, the food was excellent and the innkeepers were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be visiting this bed and breakfast again in the future!

We loved this place !! Chimney Hill offers the whole package. It’s a perfect get-away and headquarters for play, work or... for an event. The attributes that got our attention? Terrific location and excellent livability (i.e., easy access, WiFi and great cell phone coverage, lots of parking, excellent privacy, great water pressure in the shower/bath/jacuzzi). Add in: beautifully-maintained gardens, welcoming common rooms, and attentive and responsive proprietors. The photos on their website are good, but do not give the campus justice. The innkeeper helpfully explains that a large section of the main house dates back to 1820. The breakfast was delicious, home-made fare. As part of planning our vacation, we spent several days comparing the different lodging options within a 50 mile area. Save yourself time and benefit from our comparative research ! Chimney Hill is like a 2 minute drive (and a 3-4 minute bike ride) from Lambertville/New Hope. Being any closer would have meant being overtaken/crowded by the hustle-and-bustle. The location is perfect, totally close, but also like a sanctuary. They have a surprising amount of parking and lovely grounds, so it is also ideal for a corporate retreat or wedding. You feel like the grounds belong to you, and you can wander as much as you want. The other must-mention is the alpacas. Seriously, you will not believe us until you see them. They don’t mind photos. We’ll confess: we are both adult 40 year olds, and the alpaca farm won our hearts. I can only imagine the memorable and infectious delight and laughter they bring to children, tweens, teens, 20-somethings, as well as those of us who are… kids-at-all ages.
The Alpacas love you all too. Thanks for the visit. Make sure that you share those photos with every one too. Lot's of folks have never seen an Alpaca! You are some of the lucky few to have an Alpaca Adventure- up close and personal. Come see us again soon! PS: We just opened an Alpaca Store in our Inn. Go on our website for a look at the new items we are carrying. The alpaca dolls are almost as adorable as the real one ( but less work )!

We have seldom had a more completely satisfying experience in any Inn or B&B – anywhere. The Inn, the room, the staff, the llamas, and privacy, the serenity, all made our stay in Chimney Hill a wonderful and quite speechlessly sublime recharging of our marital batteries. We needed place to truly get away from the world and we found it in Chimney Hill. No TV, no PCs, no distractions, no static – just the peace and cozy warmth of our very charming and very private rooms. Thank you, so much.
Thank you so much! We really enjoy our guests and try so hard to make our home a wonderful place for all of you to come for rest and pampering! Come back soon :-)

We just got back from our one night stay at the Chimney Hill Inn. It was my birthday and all I wanted was one evening alone with my wife (no Kids) a nice dinner and a little romance. The Chimney Hill Inn was perfect. We were delighted when we were informed our room was upgraded as the Inn was not fully booked. We then were invited to a wine and cheese spread in the Stone Room. It was nice to just sit down on very comfortable leather couches and enjoy a glass of wine by the warm fireplace. We met another couple and had a nice conversation about our various travels and experiences. After dinner we made our way back to our room which was the Barn Suite #2. Our room had a living area with a gas fireplace that heated the room in about 5 minutes. We had a nice bathroom with a shower/small jacuzzi bathtub. The bedroom had a comfortable queen size bed and TV. The room had sliders out to a patio area but with the snow etc. it was not usable. I am sure it would be wonderful to sit out there in the spring/summer/fall. The next morning we had brekfast. It started out with Juice/Coffe/Water and a Fruit cup. The breakfast menu was French Toast with cranberries. My wife ate that and said it was very good. I chose instead the eggs which they were glad to serve me. Overall our stay at the Chimney Hill Inn was even better than initial expectations. My wife and I had a truely wonderful day there. It was quaint, cozy and romantic. The location is up the hill from town but not too far away. The atmosphere breeds romance and relaxation. I woud 100% recomend the inn to anyone who seeks those two things.
Thank you very much for taking so much time in writing your review. We appreciate your details and comments and hope you can come back for another visit with us soon! Terry and Rich

we booked a last minute special and that was worth every penny, i dont think i would have felt the same if we had to pay full price. we stayed in the tapestry room, it was very spacious and quiet.the innkeeper terry was very sweet and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. breakfast was delicious and we would love to go back when there isnt 2ft of snow on the ground.
Thank you for your review. Our Last Minute Specials are definately a great value! They are designed to help meet the budget minded traveler and really get alot of attention from guests making a decision to travel within 4-7 days! Everyone should check the Specials out before making a reservation!

We were looking for something special and found it at Chimney Hill Estate Inn. The inn is beautiful and tastefully decorated. Our room was large and elegant. The innkeeper went out of her way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We came back from dinner to enjoy a romantic evening in front of the fire in the Stone Room. It was a treat to have breakfast in the pretty dining room. Breakfast was fabulous and the service was wonderful. We enjoyed a tour of the grounds which included seeing the Alpacas before heading off to the sites recommended by the innkeeper. We look forward to visiting this inn again in the future.

My husband and I decided to take advantage of a last minute special. We were so pleasantly surprised. This is a beautiful inn! Every part of the inn is filled with tasteful details. And Terry was very accomodating to our needs. Breakfast was delicious and it was served in a lovely dining room in front of the fireplace. Thank you also to Eric for being so attentive. We would not hesitate to return to Chimney Hill!
Great! Again Last Minute Specials are fun and affordable! We are always trying to find ways to get you out of the house and having a special getaway on a Last Minute Deal is really worth the effort! Thanks!

We've Stayed here before and found this to be a lovely inn. The rooms are very nice and the breakfast is terrific. I rated the service unsatisfactory because we had a plumbing problem that occurred in the evening and no one ever answered the phone. I ended up wandering around the inn trying to find tools to fix the problem because no one was there. It all turned out OK but I wish I didn't have to spend 2 hours of my time trying to make repairs.
We are happy hear that you love our property and breakfast! But we were very sorry to hear this plumbing situation happened. Chimney Hill has a 24 hours staff service available through our 800 number. We realize something went wrong when this client called and have remedied the situation immediately.

My wife and I went on a very quiet January weekend (almost had the place to ourselves which we imagine is rare). The house itself was charming - what you hope from a B&B - and the owners were very kind and attentive, getting up extra early to make us breakfast so we could hit the road on time. We had the third floor room - only real complaint is that we couldn't control the temperature and it got very hot at night; had to open the window on a 15 degree night. Room was expensive but perhaps in the summer the chance to enjoy the grounds helps soften that blow. I felt like I wanted just a bit more out of the experience to meet that high a price, though - not much more, but the room was tight so maybe just extra touches like better wine choice(s) and more interesting cheeses for the evening wine & cheese would have rounded it all out. Maybe I'm just snotty. The dinner recommendation (Lambertville Station) that came with our package was so-so. Some fun menu items and the prices weren't outrageous, but I think there are several better choices in town so we'd rather try something else if we return. Lambertville/New Hope is charming - it would have been really fantastic if we were within walking distance of there (+/- 1 mile out of town, but uphill on a dark street so not realistic in winter). Again, maybe in warmer weather that's a nice walk and helps "fix" the high room price. Overall we enjoyed the quiet, the classic country feel, and the hospitality. Our complaints are probably picky.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We certainly enjoy making our guests feel comforatble and going the extra effort to accomidate your special needs. The walk to town is explored by alot of our guests, but rarely in the cold winter month of January. Please always feel free when you visit Chimney Hill Estate to let us know if anything needs adjusting, we can easily fix any situation. Our desire is to help you enjoy your special time together, we know how precious that is to you! Thank You, Terry

Chimney Hill is a romantic, charming, peaceful inn. Our time spent sipping wine by the fire in the gorgeous Stone Room was enjoyable. The grounds are stunning, including the greenhouse which was decorated for the holidays. The innkeepers and staff were very friendly and accommodating. We look forward to returning in the Spring. An Inn not to be missed!

Had our wedding on 12/21/09 - and nothing could have been any better. Terri and her staff made us feel like family and the Inn was nothing short of spectacular! This is an B&B not to be missed!!! Worth every penny and then some... can't wait to return again and again. Andrew G

My wife and I were looking to get away for some peace and quiet and found that at Chimney Hill Inn. The room was very charming and was very well kept. I loved the fireplace since we got snow while we were there. That was the icing on the cake ! You can tell that the owners truly enjoy what they do. We will be visiting again and recommend highly!!

This is the third time we have stayed in the Lambertville area. We had previously stayed at the Woolverton Inn, but they were booked for the weekend we wanted to get away. Based on reviews of Chimney Hill, we decided to give them a try. Upon our arrival, we were made to feel very welcome. The great part of the main house was what my wife and I referred to as the "Stone Room". A room with windows and large french doors, and a wood-burning fireplace, and the most comfortable leather loveseats, perfect for the wine and cheese, or just sitting there and relaxing. Guests were friendly and willing to talk, which only enhanced the experience. Our room was a Barn suite, with fireplace, jacuzzi and a bedroom loft. The loft took some getting used to (spiral staircase), but after the first couple of times up and down, it became natural. The jacuzzi was very nice. The bed was very comfortable and we both slept very well. The only complaints about the room were the pillows were very flat, so we had to double up, and the wall air conditioner made some very loud noises at 3AM on our last night, which woke us up, so we had to turn it off. Breakfast each morning was excellent, which consisted of a baked sweet bread, a fruit dish of some kind, and a main course. Service was pleasant and efficient, and they catered to special diets, or if you didn't like what they were serving, they were willing to make you scrambled eggs, the "meat of the day" and toast, which was a nice touch compared to other B&Bs, where if you didn't like what they were serving, you ended up with cold cereal. I would definitely stay at Chimney Hill again, primarily for how comfortable we were made to feel there and the breakfast. We would probably try another room that had more charm, rather than sheer size.

My task was enormous, I had to find a place which would express the love I felt for this woman, a place of beauty, serenity, kindness, and elegance. Somewhere I would feel comfortable telling her I was made for her, a place that would inspire me and show her how much she meant to me. I knew that Chimney Hill Estate was the perfect place from the first picture I saw on their web site. What I hadn't counted on was the fantastic ambiance offered by Terry and her staff. I can only define Terry as a Classy lady, with a fantastic heart and soul, that is present in every aspect of Chimney Hill Estates. If you are looking for a place to fall in love, re-kindle romance, let your better half know how much you appreciate her, you will not find a more appropriate atmosphere. Terry....you helped me find my love. Thank You !! Peter

Last wknd, my wife and I spent a wonderful 3 nights at Chimney Hill. While long time visitors to the New Hope Area, we'd never been to this inn. After booking the smallest room there, upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that we'd been upgraded, a no additional cost, to a much larger room (the Library). The inn is very romantic, quiet, and tastefully decorated. The playable Steinway was a major plus. Breakfast was great and we really appreciated the way we were accomodated when we had to leave early on Monday. We've been to over 160 Inns and B&B's...this is one of our favorites.

We wanted a small, intimate yet classy wedding within a certain budget. We found Chimney Hill Inn and were married April 2009. It was a fantastic experience! they went out of their way to accomodate our needs and the photos their staff took are great. The grounds are rustic and well manicured. The rooms are beautiful. Their resident alpacas and llamas are truly enchanting. All our guests had a good time. The only recommendation i would have is in the breakfast options to offer something light and healthy...

Arriving on a beautiful day in Spring, we were impressed by the grounds, beautiful flowers and a wonderful flower garden. Our room was a delight - being ahead of the real tourist season, we had the whole main house to ourselves. Sat outside and had a "libation" before going into New Hope for dinner and a play. Arriving back, we sat in the "Stone Room" and had a chit chat. Our room was lovely, comfortable and peaceful. Breakfast the next day, prepared by Eric, was so substantial, we really wanted to skip lunch! Do we recommend? We certainly do! A&J, Little Egg Harbor, NJ

The atmosphere at the Inn was so inviting! Everyone worked hard to make our stay such a relaxing and comfortable one. The room was beautifully decorated and the food was delicious! Terri was even kind enough to share her recipes. The location is great - away from the center of town, but close enough to get there in minutes! It's only been one day since we left, but we miss it already. Hope to return soon - perhaps around the holidays.

Just a beautiful home and property. We were welcomed by Susan and were treated like royalty. Our room was magnificent...We opened our windows and a woodpecker woke us up for breakfast. Terry, the innkeeper's wife, met us for breakfast and told us about their llama family. We loved our stay!

We stayed here two nights after our wedding to spend time together and to relax after a hectic weekend in Barn Suite #4. It was just the right place to recoup. The place is very warm, clean and relaxing. The staff were very friendly and provided good suggestions around the area. I would definitely recommend Chimney Hill Estate.
4.2 on March 30, 2009
The Chimney Hill Estate Inn is just a wonderful and beautiful escape from whereever you're coming from. And it's a quiet alternative to the other lovely inns in downtown Lambertville and New Hope PA. The breakfast is terrific - really a full meal! [Our only suggestion is that the coffee could be stronger] The innkeepers are very nice and helpful. And if you can book last minute, the Inn features last minute specials on its website. We do this because the base prices can be high, even though the rooms are large and comfortable. We especially love the bathrobes and the grounds outside.

Having just recently returned from a 13 month deployment to the Middle East, my wife and I needed to get away for a few days to reconnect and give her a break from our 4 kids -- in New Jersey to visit relatives, we decided to give Chimney Hill Estate a try... We had a wonderful time, Chimney Hill is located on an old farm in the countryside just outside Lambertville. The staff there is extremely friendly and helpful; they go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible. The suites are very private, quiet, and have a unique ambiance that both my wife and I found very appealing. Lambertville itself is actually a very interesting place with lots of historic old style charm, small shops, and great food. The staff at Chimney Hill set us up with a special package that included a his and hers spa visit in town. We especially enjoyed breakfast each morning as well as sitting by the fireplace in the great room of the main house. We would recommend Chimney Hill Estate to anyone and hope to return someday when we find ourselves in the area again.
Thank you for your kind words about Chimney Hill and our Staff. They work hard to make evryone feel at home. We also thank you for your service to our country and express great appreciation for your service and for your family's sacrifice while you were away. Warm Regards, Terry Anderson and Chimney Hill Inn Staff

We came for a relaxing birthday getaway and Chimney Hill blew us away. The staff was very kind and helpful, and the breakfast was 5 star.

I took my boyfriend to Chimney Hill Inn last Thursday night for his birthday and his (and my) first B&B experience. The Inn was recommended by a friend, who once stayed in the main house. We stayed in Barn Suite #3....pricey but glorious. We took photos both inside our suite and outside with the llamas and alpacas. We very much enjoyed our stay overall, though, for the price, I would have liked to have a more extensive breakfast menu/options.
4.8 on March 11, 2009
These are stressful times, and we sorely needed a place where our body and spirit could be rejuvinated. The warm greeting, gorgeous fireplace room, wine and cheese, charming room, delicious breakfast, all served to make our 24 hours away feel much longer. Thank you Chimney Hill Inn! We'll be back.

We have stayed in a number of similar inns. Chimney Hill was physically lovely, as expected - the house and common areas, and the alpacas/llamas are cute. However, the service and management were jarring. We stayed in the main house (room 1) for two nights. On both mornings we were woken in an unwelcome manner. On the first morning our clock radio went off at 6:40am. In addition, classic rock began to blare downstairs about an hour before breakfast. Initially we thought it was Saturday morning workmen, but we went down to discover that it was the breakfast music. The manager did turn the music down. She blamed the other staff member for the alarm clock and did not offer any apology. On the second morning the music was more bland but was just as loud and without charm. We also overheard the manager informing her fellow staff member that if guests showed up even 10 minutes late, they would get no breakfast. This was quite unnecessary for us to hear. There was an apparent blood stain on the door sill to the bathroom. On the positive side, the house is lovely. Other than a few tacky tchotchkes and a separate bathroom, we were satisfied with the room. We suspect that the place was once owner-operated, but that it's now under management by less attentive third parties. Finally - if the above flaws are repaired, Chimney Hill would still be on the expensive side.
Thank you for your thoughts. Chimney Hill Estate is a very historic property 1820-1927 and we chose to honor the building construction as it is a Margaret Spencer home ( the first women MIT/architect in the US). Many of our guests find the home charming and appealing in it's natural state. There are many rooms with bathrooms within the rooms, this is your choice when making the reservation. Music: We play various artist for our music selection. Some contemporary and some sentimental. Everyone enjoys different types of music and therefore choose to play music selections by wonderful artists. Breakfast: All guests are served breakfast every morning. We sometimes call their room to make sure they are awake and have offered breakfast to their room if they prefer. I have not heard of a guest refused breakfast, I am certain I would hear about this from the guest. Chimney Hill Ownership: Chimney Hill is Owner Operated by Terry and Rich Anderson since 1994, so your comment and assumption about third party is an invalid assumption. Please ask our staff if you have a question or are displeased with something during your stay . We are always happy to assist you through out your stay. Thank you, Terry Anderson

We stayed in the Garden Room and it was very comfortable and charming. Although the bathroom is located in the hallway outside we did not mind since the hallway is private to just the guests of the Garden Room. Also the Garden Room is located on the top floor and very secluded from rest of rooms. The room was very clean and decorated nicely. The morning breakfast was delicious but a bit short staffed and we had to wait a while for the tables to be cleaned. Once we were seated and served all went well. We did not feel that there were any special touches for the guests as we find in other B&Bs we stay in. The only thing I would change about the whole experience is that we did not really see the innkeepers all weekend. The weekend innkeeper was not too friendly and welcoming. Since it was our first stay there I guess I expected a little more from the staff. If you like to be left alone you may like the fact that the innkeepers are no where to be found. We were invited to a wine & cheese party by the innkeepers on our first evening and no one else showed up - not even innkeepers which we thought was strange. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Chimney Hill Estate and think you will just love the charming house & grounds (esp in Spring & Summer). We would stay there again.
Thank you for taking the time to place a review. It is our greatest desire that every guest has wonderful experience during their visit at our home and so to enhance their experience by adding extra amenities for their pleasures; wine and cheese, a butler pantry filled with cookies, sherry, beverages anytime. Friday and Saturday we offer wine and cheese for 2 hours during the check in period. This is prepared for our guests to enjoy when they arrive as a relaxation amenity since they are weary from their travels. Many weekends this turns into quite the social spot, other times it may be rather quiet as some guests arrive and choose to go into town to start their weekend getaways plans. We as Innkeepers are away from the Inn on some weekends as we have family, grand kids, parents to visit for special occasions, and sometimes even take weekend off for us. Our Innkeepers work hard to make guests feel at home and try to get folks off to an enjoyable weekend stay relaxing or visiting our wonderful Lambertville and New Hope areas. We hope you will visit us again and we will have a chance to meet you next time. Warm Regards, Terry Anderson

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Chimney Hill. The staff was very attentive, the breakfast was outstanding and our room clean and very well preserved in the vintage style. The bed could have been a little more comfortable, but the wine and cheese every day before dinner in the stone room was a very nice touch. We would definitely come back to the Inn. Met some very nice people there on Valentine's Day weekend. Thank you Carlene and Eric!!

Delightfully relaxing! The inn was gorgous, the hosts gracious and caring, and the food was delicious! It was the perfect weekend getaway. The inn is close to town, but far enough away to feel secluded. You truly feel the history of the inn (185 years old!), yet it is not outdated. We chose the romance package which included a vase full of fresh flowers in the room, champagne (perfect taste), our own engraved champagne glasses to keep, French truffles made locally, a $50 gift certificate for dinner, and a local winery tour. Perfect additions to the weekend! I would definitely stay here again!

We would definitely go back! Great price, but considering the price, we expected it to be great. Would suggest a higher quality comforter and newer sheets in the room. Breakfast was excellent and warm hospitality.
Thank you for your comments. We are always trying very much to please our guests. Our rooms are decorated and furnished with new quality comforters on a regular base. We strive to meet and exceed our guest needs with our personal service. We appreciate your business and will always try harder to meet your expectations.

This was our 2nd time staying at Chimney Hill Inn, in Barn Suite 2. The second time around was just as fantastic as when we fell in love with the place the first time. The suite is lovely, the breakfasts are absolutely delicious, and we love the alpacas! Both times we have stayed here the staff has gone out of their way to suprise us with their hospitality. The shops and restaurants in Lambertville and New Hope are great. We went to dinner at Karla's in New Hope one night, and our meals (pomegranate duck, and mahi mahi with crab-mashed potatoes) were the best we've ever eaten. I definitely recommend it! All in all, we look forward to coming back here next year for our third visit!

Charming Inn with warm and friendly staff who cater to your every need. The room was comfortable (Barn suit #3) with a great view of the snow covered hills. The gas fireplace and hot tub were more than romantic. The biggest surprise was the ample, delicious breakfest of blueberry pancakes and some of the best sausage I've ever had. We had breakfest delivered to our rooms which was a perfect beginning to a perfect day of roaming in and our of the delightful shops of Lambertville and New Hope.

This was by far one of the best B&B's we've stayed in. Nothing was a problem if we asked, food was excellent, meeting room great & nice "extras" that made it 1st class.

Absolutely beautiful. Perhaps the best B&B we have ever stayed at. The estate is beautiful, clean, and decorated in a way that is both charming and cozy. The staff is exceptional. The breakfast was the best food we have ever had. Simply awesome. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I have been under a great deal of stress lately, so we took a much-needed getaway. We were fortunate to find Chimney Hill Inn for our trip. What a very beautiful, peaceful place! The innkeepers were incredibly kind and hospitable, the food was amazing and the room was fabulous. I can't wait to go back!

My husband and I went on our honeymoon in May. We initially planned to leave the country on a lavish excursion, but with a lot on our plate we decided to stay close to home. I could not have been happier. We had one of the best vacations of ever. The Inn is absolutely stunning, unique, and comfortable. The food is delicious- and Terry the owner/innkeeper is fantastic! Our favorite part was having a glass of wine with her late day. We will definitely try to visit at least once a year. This is the sort of place you want to keep going back to- just amazing. The only negative was having to go home...

Chimney Hill is a great place to spend a quiet weekend. The Barn Suites are very private and a wonderful place to spend a special occasion. We highly recommend this inn!

I have traveled all over the country for business. I have never been so overwhelmed with such kindness and concern. Every detail of my stay was over seen by the charming Inn Keeper, Terry Anderson. Her attention to detail was found to be flawless. The beautiful home and setting could only be out shown by the Innkeeper herself. The conference rooms exceeded any needs. Her staff were gracious and prompt. In the morning expect to see Terry in the kitchen making breakfast for the guests. I look forward to returning to this beautiful oasis. This B&B is one that can not be missed!

This was an experience which exceeded my expectations. We had only a week to book and this was one of the only rooms in town so we took it and hoped for the best. It was a stone's throw from all of the action in Lambertville. In fact, every other Inn I looked at during my trip was in too busy a location, and just not as luxurious as Chimney Hill. The setting is bucolic. Ambience, ambience on the quiet hillside. Host Terry was working for us before we even arrived, setting up my dinner reservations before we arrived, (which included assuring that my handicapped mom could access the restaurant) and an emphatic "no problem" when we were arriving later than check-in time. We stayed in the barn room suite, which was rustic-luxurious (all new but with a distinctly historic patina). From our private patio we could enjoy Terry's Alpaca's and other wildlife. The Inn was booked but felt completely private. The place itself is simply gorgeous. We enjoyed the Main House, sitting by the fire, drinking coffee and reading the daily newpapers and the area restaurant menus laid out by Terry. The breakfasts themselves were sinful. A banana french toast strudel, fresh fruit, delicious sausage, banana's & cream (sprinkled with nuts and raisins) and an egg souffle were superb. The coffee was delicious and hot. The beds, linens and pillows were comfortable. The three-shower head shower was great. The only suggestion for improvement would be to upgrade to a "heavenly" bed concept for the extreme in luxury, with feather beds and comforters. However, the mattress was topped with a feather topper so it was still quite nice. I will never look for another place in the New Hope/Lamberville area to stay. Chimney Hill is the kind of place you don't just want to stay, you want to develop a relationship with it! I miss it already.

My Boyfriend and I went away for New Years Eve. It was such a beautiful house and everyone there was so friendly. Our room was so shabby chic, with a fire place in the room! The breakfast was excellent. It was minutes away from new hope, which is where we went out for New Years Eve. I would definitely go back again!

We've been to Chimney Hill several times and consider it one of our favorite spots in the Lambertville / New Hope area. It's a short drive from the downtown area, which is perfect for us, because we like it to be quiet. Room was great - never were able to wake up in time for the breakfast though.
