My husband and I just spend a wonderful getaway weekend at Chestnut Hill and couldn't be happier. We had a beautiful room with the most wonderful jacuzzi. The gardens were beautiful - we can't wait to go back with some wine and cheese and eat by the water. We will definitely be back.

I was attending a week-long class in the area. To come back to this wonderful B&B each evening was like Heaven! Just wish I had more time to enjoy the place.

We have stayed at Chestnut Hill on the Delaware many times and it just keeps getting better. This visit we were joined by 4 of our friends. Linda and Rob are the best hosts. They do everything possible to help their guests. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. The breakfasts are fantastic. We especially love sitting on the front porch in the comfortable rocking chairs and looking out at the Delaware. Special thanks to Rob for taking us out on the pontoon boat. The ride was enjoyable and we really loved Rob’s discussion of the history of the river. We plan on returning to this wonderful bed and breakfast as often as possible. It is the best! Eileen and Mike

I'm about to book our 3rd trip to Chestnut Hill. Rob & Linda treat us like family. We have stayed in Summer Morning and The Paradise Suite; both were wonderful! The town of Milford is charming. It's great to get the early (6am) morning cup of coffee, and go sit by the river. It's even better to be able to walk to dinner. We just finished a cruise. I can honestly say we had a better time at the Chestnut Hill Inn! Kim & Dan W.

I never bother to write reviews, but, like the previous reviewer, I had to take the time and give credit to this wonderful inn. Milford is a quiet town and the inn is right on the Delaware. Linda and Rob make you feel at home as soon as you step on the front porch. We stayed in Summer Morning, a glorious, spacious room with fireplace, king sized bed, and large bathroom with a two-person jacuzzi and lovely stained glass window. The weather was perfect and we slept with the windows open - a cool breeze blowing. Just perfect. Linda makes delicious breakfasts, the coffee is perfect, and directed us to some local out-of-the way places to visit. We tried two of the local restaurants - both were within walking distance and delicious! It is hard to believe just an hour or so drive across the State would brings us to such a tranquil place - it was just what we needed. Highly, highly recommend and we will be back!

I have never written a review before and to be honest I can stand doing it. I usually ask my wife to do it, but I wanted to do this one. The bed and breakfast at Chestnut Hill on the Delaware in Milford, NJ is amazing. The main reason it’s amazing is because of the innkeepers, Rob and Linda, and their attention to details. Some details include: fresh baked cookies, personalized notes, fresh flower in the rooms, and chocolates by the bed to just name a few. What really blew me away was when Rob showed up to our dinner at a local restaurant with an umbrella knowing that we had walked there and it started to rain. I was blown away. These are the personal details I have come to know while staying at Chestnut Hill along with an impeccably clean room. Words cannot describe the great hidden gem that is Chestnut Hill. John Teacher: Age 28 NY P.S The breakfast is delicious. Last time I told myself I would write a review, this time I am keeping my word.

Our yearly visit is enchanting, thanks to Linda & Rob making us feel so cherished & pampered in "Teddy's Place." Breakfast was outstanding!

We had a wonderful get away weekend at the Chestnut Hill. We stayed in the Rose Garden room which was very nicely decorated with roses everywhere. Our hosts Linda & Rob were very gracious and helpful.

My husband Louis and I needed a weekend getaway for quite some time. We've been to weekend getaways in the past but this B&B by far surpasses all of them, combined! We truly had the most romantic and relaxing weekend. So much so that we will be coming back again in the summer! Linda and Rob welcome you with open arms and gentle hearts. Linda will even call you before you get there just to make sure you make it safely and to advise you on the local traffic conditions. A true blessing of a time. Thank you Linda and Rob for everything. A wonderful gift from God.

Linda and Rob make you feel like family the moment you meet them in their beautiful inn. We have been to Chestnut Hill on the Delaware several times and each time has been a beautiful, relaxing and enjoyable experience. The inn rooms are all gorgeous and comfortable. The breakfasts are outstanding. If you want a truly enjoyable and relaxing experience, travel to Chestnut Hill on the Delaware. You will never be disappointed!

As soon as you enter into this victorian getaway, you are greeted by the innkeepers, who treat you like a family member from the start! The coziness of the rooms, each themed uniquely , and a sense of belonging in each one. You awake from a great peaceful sleep to the aroma of baked goods, and coffee or tea, with a surprise second course, each prepared by Linda and Rob with love. Special requests? Linda and Rob will see to it you are satisfied and content, surrounded by the magic that a weekend getaway can provide to you!!!!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Chestnut Hill on the Delaware. We were greeted with a merry note including all the guests names tagged on the banister~ours names included our anniversary. We were greeted by Linda and Rob (who happened to be going out to dinner w/ repeat guests of 25 years). In our room, there was a happy anniversary balloon, candy on the pillows. The room was very comfortable and super clean. Linda gave us a tour of the room. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the area around the inn. Both Rob and Linda were very knowledgable of the area. We took bike rides along the Delaware and explored the towns along the way. Lovely inn. I would highly recommend it.

My husband and I spent a wonderful 35th anniversary at Chestnut Hill on the Delaware. The bed and breakfast was beautiful. Each room has been lovingly restored by the innkeepers, Linda and Rob Castagna. Linda and Rob are very welcoming and made our visit very special. The view of the Delaware River from the front porch was so relaxing. The breakfasts were delicious each morning and the special homemade treats added to our enjoyment. Chestnut Hill on the Delaware is an exceptional place to stay!

Grace and I packed our bags, mounted our bikes on the trunk of the Lesabre and off we went from Bayonne, in the rain. Leave it to say, we left our worries behind and enjoyed the warmth and friendliness of the "home-away-from-home" resort. As soon as we met Linda and Ron we received a warm welcome from them and reviewed the past year with them (as we were guests the year before). The room was fantastic and the food was to our liking and request. The service was superb and the grounds of the Chestnut Hill Inn were abundant with flowers and other living fauna. The Inn has a dock which Rob and Linda constantly work on for the guests comfort. Rob enjoys taking the guests on the river in his pontoon boat and, with Linda's assistance, points out the various birds and landmarks. We enjoyed sitting on the dock and the porch of the Inn, experiencing the sounds of the river and the surrounding songs of nature itself. Inside the Inn, we viewed all of Linda's photographs, which she has on the walls and also in some journals. As a special treat, we pondered over the 100th year anniversary book of Milford, which Linda had labored over for the past year. She had interviewed shop owners and took fantastic photos of them. She is a very talented organizer when it comes to publishing a documentary of History. Speaking of History, Rob showed us some souverniers he had come across on the river's banks. Arrowheads, old apothocary bottles from and old hospital next door to the Inn ( which is the other building of the Inn), and other finds from the town of Milford. Grace and I are looking forward to our next visit to CHI. We had arrived just after all the rain over the weekend and we experienced a different phase of the river, as it was runing fast and the current strong from the upstream waters filling the arteries. It was exciting and enjoyable to witness. I would strongly suggest this B&B to all enthusiastic B&B enthusiasts.
5 on July 16, 2011
I have been a 'regular' at Chestnut Hill for so long now I feel like a member of an extended family. The Inn is stunning; 'eat off the floor' clean, excellent breakfasts, very peaceful. Rob and Linda are truly marvelous innkeepers who are attentive, knowledgeable of the area, and very accommodating. There are several excellent restaurants in the area including the #1 Zagat rated seafood place in all of NJ...and that's saying something! I would not only recommend you go...I would recommend you go many times!

I was happy I picked this inn from B&B.com. Owners made you feel right at home. The property was beautiful and well maintained inside and outside. The view of the river was right out front. I especially liked the roof top deck accessed from the room. I would love to come back again!

My husband and I have stayed at Chestnut Hill on the Delaware three times. With each visit we've enjoyed our time immensely and wish it were longer. The owners Linda and Rob are wonderful hosts. It's like visiting relatives you never met, then realizing they're so nice that you wish you could see them more often! Their Victorian home is beautifully decorated. The rooms are very pretty and exceptionally clean. Also, the decor is fanciful yet extremely tasteful, each with a different theme. The grounds are lovely and their private dock on the Delaware River bank is right in front of the house. Their website is loaded with pictures of the house and property. Milford is a very tiny town but there are many other small towns very close by with nice shops and dining. Also, there are at least 3 vineyards within 10 min drive. There is a bike rental shop in Frenchtown (next town over). In Milford we dined at the Milford Oyster House (very good) and the Ship Inn (decent). In Frenchtown, we’ve dined at Cocina del Sol (very good), and our favorite place to eat is The Lovin Oven. Breakfast at Chestnut Hill is excellent. Linda is an awesome cook and all meals we had with her and Rob were wonderful. We last visited only a few weeks ago but miss it terribly and hope to return very soon. It’s the best place to get away from it all.
5 on December 15, 2010
This place is a little gem on the river! What makes it so spectacular is the way Linda and Rob shower you with sincere hospitality, kindness, information and warmth!!!The minute you walk into this Victorian Home, you are a part of the history the rooms have to offer! Many great stories are told, and the stories are not limited to the house, but to the events the area holds. Linda and Rob hold a great sense of pride in their hospitality and their quaint town. Each and every room has a different theme, and has feel of the warmest and coziest comforts of your home! Everywhere you look there is attention to detail. candy on the pillows, fresh flowers on the nightstand, extra linens, soaps, .. you name it.. you will find it!!! Breakfast? WOW!!! Walk out of your room, and you are greeted by the aroma of a magnificent feast! Linda and Rob move tirelessly in and out of the kitchen,as you are served your choice of tea or coffee, fruit, and a special egg or breakfast treat, made with love and the best darn ingredients on earth!!! And as you down your last sip of tea or coffee, the cup is filled before you can even look down! When you depart, you will leave behind not only a wonderful memory, but an experience, and a friendship that will have you returning year after year!!!! It is the WHOLE PACKAGE!!!!

If you desire to be warmly welcomed by thoughtful, knowledgeable and personable owners to a perfectly situated B&B, with all the creature comforts, and spending time in beatifully appointed immaculate rooms, waking up to delicious, gourmet breakfasts then Chestnut Hill on the Delaware is the place to stay. The location is beyond lovely, on the water with spectacular views of the mountains and the bridge. All of this within walking distance of the canal tow path and the charming downtown streets of Milford, NJ. The owners are a delight. I will go back again and again and I highly recommend it to all my family and friends.

You know when you go to a favorite relatives house for a holiday and their house is beautifully decorated and it smells like apple pie and your relative greets you with that big smile that says 'you are my favorite,' and then ushers you in and shows you to the room you will be staying and she has taken the time to complete it with extra touches and detail and when you come downstairs in the morning, she has been up for hours quietly preparing a delicious breakfast and then when you can't eat anymore says, 'can I make reservations for you for dinner or would you like me to call the bike shop for you to reserve a bike?' and even though they are busy getting the house ready for all the guests they always have time to sit and talk and answer questions and to suggest you join them for a boat ride on the river which happens to be outside their door? Don't have relatives like that? Go stay at Chestnut Hill and you will discover in fact you do. Mike Ryan

Nowhere you can be closer to the Old American charm than in Cgestnul Hill on the Delaware. Beautifully decorated rooms with genuine love and appreciation of great American past. Linda and Rob are the most welcoming. Beautiful Delaware River views from the windows. I will cherish memories of my stay there for the rest of my life. Thank you, Linda and Rob. Tatyana

My wife and I just returned from our 2nd visit to Chestnut Hill and it won't be the last. If you are looking to relax and leave your cares and worries behind for a few days, this is the place to be. Linda and Rob are extremely gracious hosts and really go out of their way to ensure the comfort of their guests. There are so many ways to kick back, relax, and enjoy each other's company. Sit on the porch staring at the river views, spend a lazy day on the river bank, take a winery tour, or visit nearby towns like Fenchtown or Stockton. You won't regret a weekend getaway at Chestnut Hill on the Delaware!

Upon arriving at the property the hassle and stress of daily life immediately begins to fade. Your eyes are captured by a beautiful view of the Delaware surrounded by the natural colors the river bank (summer). The 1860 Victorian Inn is maintained impeccably and decorated with passion - revealing the talent and dedication of Linda & Rob, the innkeepers. Once inside you are greeted with a handwritten welcome note and depending on your timing (and theirs) by Linda & Rob who are amazingly gracious and attentive to any and all of your requests. Even after nearly 30yrs at the property they exude excitement, attention to details, smiles, pleasant conversations, knowledge about the area and most of all warmth. Clearly neither one considers being innkeepers a job but rather a very fulfilling way to spend their time. We stayed in the fabulously furnished and decorated "Summer Morning" room. The online photos completely understate the room and its character. The bathroom in the Summer Morning renders the rest of the room redundant. I could have easily slept in the jet tub surrounded by heated floors and heated towel rack with the soothing natural sounds of the area. Outside and across the railroad track they have carved an area overlooking the Delaware that, weather permitting, will have you outdoors for hours. As you gaze at the river you feel relaxed and tranquil as the water reflects the glitter from the afternoon sun. Following Linda & Rob's suggestion we brought dinner to the Inn and sat outdoor on the porch with candlelight as we watch the setting sun over the Delaware. What we ate was inconsequential - after 5 minutes our attention was fixed on the view and ourselves. If you are looking for quiet romantic getaway within a reasonable distance from central NJ - this is a wonderful, cozy and peaceful choice.
5 on August 19, 2010
We had the most wonderful mini escape! It exceeded our expectations. Linda and Rob are the sweetest people. They are exceedingly warm and have the natural ability to sense the needs of their guests. The location was key for us, as we only wanted to be on the water. The town of Milford was just what we were looking for. Don't ever change!
4.8 on August 18, 2010
Linda and Rob went over and above to make our stay memorable. They are gracious, personable, attentive to details, every nook and cranny has such care and thought both inside the house and outside in the gardens and the multi-tiered levels to the dock... their sense of decor and style is impeccable. Linda is a wonderful, world class photographer...which is fitting as their clientele come from far and wide. Going out on a boat ride with Rob at the helm is both a relaxing and invigorating experience as he relates so much about the river and the history, attractions and people in the surrounding area. Chestnut Hill on the Delaware is a place that beckons many a return visit.
5 on August 18, 2010
We celebrated our 10th anniversary in the Summer Morning room. We read all the great reviews but it wasn't til we saw it with our own eyes that believed what everyone else had written on here. It was super clean and beautifully decorated. Linda and Rob are wonderful hosts. We felt like we were visiting with old friends. The house is located right on the river which made it even more magical. We will definitely recommend to our friends and be back ourselves. You will not be disappointed.

We have stayed at Chestnut on the Delaware many times and keep returning because it is such a great place to stay. Linda and Rob are wonderful hosts and the B&B is immaculate. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are exceptionally clean and well decorated. Sitting on the porch and looking at the Delaware is so relaxing. It just doesn't get any better! Rob gave us a ride on the pontoon boat and we really enjoyed seeing the birds and turtles. The breakfast was delicious. We especially loved the pancakes. Linda and Rob really care and it shows in the way they treat their guests. I highly recommend this B&B. It is definitely a winner. Eileen and Mike Beard

My wife and I have just returned from 4 spectacular days at Chestnut Hill B & B on the banks of the Delaware River. Our hosts, Linda and Rob, provided for our every need during our stay and we look forward to returning many times in the future. Our room was one of the best that we have ever had at an inn and the daily breakfast was to die for. Perfect weather, interesting small towns to visit throughout Bucks County and friendly people along the way made for a trip we will always remember. Run, don't walk, to Chestnut Hill on the Delaware, you will be glad you did. Bill & Lynda Christian La Quinta, California
5 on August 04, 2010
This B & B was even better than we expected. Linda and Rob were extremely gracious hosts. The inn is beautiful and charming. It is right on the river, and I was even able to catch some smallmouth bass from the dock. The rooms are decorated with different themes and look like something out of a magazine. You can walk to the local eateries and shops in Milford. Plenty of things to interest a visitor up and down both sides of the river if you choose to sight see. Breakfast on the porch overlooking the river is really nice. You won't be dissappointed.
5 on August 02, 2010
My wife and I have been going to Chestnut Hill for the past 20 years. Linda and Rob continue to amaze us by their attention to detail, hospitality and graciousness. The breakfast is always outstanding and we have only duplicated it a few times. Saturday we went out on the pontoon boat for a sunset cruise. You could not find a better place to relax. We call Linda & Rob "friends" and Chestnut Hill our home away from home !!
5 on August 01, 2010
We loved our short stay of two nights, a marvelous location with lot's to do or nothing but watch the river slide by, the beautiful gardens and the most delicious sunset ever and above all the Innkeepers are both the sweetest and most generous and hospitable people ever.
5 on June 25, 2010
This is the B&B that all others should model themselves after. It is true perfection - the home is magnificent, the setting majestic, and the innkeepers indescribable! Even a 'one nighter' leaves you refreshed and rejuvenated, and wanting to plan your next stay. Linda and Rob think of EVERYTHING, and a visit to their inn is always wonderful! It is our favorite getaway!
5 on June 16, 2010
We celebrated our 40th anniversary in this romantic haven. How could one setting be so peaceful, so much fun and so romantic all at one time? Linda is always there to lavish the smallest detail and yet quietly disappears to make us feel that the entire house is ours alone. Magnificent! We will return.

We had a delightful, relaxing weekend at Chestnut Hill. We spent a lot of time lazing about the well cared for property. (We even brought lunch and ate in a private nook in a terraced garden over the Delaware -nicer that most riverside restuarants!) Breakfasts were really beautiful and delicious. Location was perfect for basically anything you'd like to do - very close to walkable towns, natural sites, river activities, bike/walking paths, etc. The room and bathroom were large and comfortable, with many extras. We loved it.
5 on June 12, 2010
We have stayed in numerous B & B's, and Chesnut Hill was the very best. Rob & Linda (Inn keepers) were very kind and full of humility as they made our weekend very comfortable. The room was super clean and very homey; the meals were very unique and delicious. Not one complaint, only praise for this beautiful home on the Delaware River, a definite keeper. Well worth the trip from any distance.
5 on May 19, 2010
For relaxation and total peace this is the place to go. Not only will you feel so relaxed, but the innkeepers will make you feel like you are so special. Truly no other place I have gone has given me such a feeling - and I love to travel and have found so many neat and interesting destinations. This is a REALLY special place that you will want to return to over and over!

The owners and the guests were very nice. We had a really good time. Susan and John

After staying at other properties in the area, Chestnut Hill stands alone. Not only are the innkeepers and staff lovely, the grounds and accommodations hve NO room for improvement. Beautifully furnished and immaculate are the rooms and the view is unsurpassed any time of year.

My fiance surprised me with a long Valentine's weekend at Chestnut Hill and I can honestly say that I have never been more impressed with a B&B! I had no idea this wonderful place existed before hand but I haven't been able to stop telling everyone I meet all about it. The attention to detail is unparalleled. Linda and Rob don't miss any opportunity to put their personal touches on every room. We were lucky enough to stay in Summer Morning which definitely evoked that feeling despite recent snowfalls. The room was spacious as was the incredible bathroom (heated floor tiles and 2 person jacuzzi). The view of the river with its banks blanketed in snow was straight out of a postcard. Breakfasts were both delicious and creative, as well as ample enough to keep you going most of the day. Linda and Rob are not only some of the most interesting people to talk with but are truly the most gracious hosts I've ever stayed with. It's clear their goal is to make your stay there as relaxing, carefree and memorable as possible. I would love to make a stay there an annual Valentine event, but am also looking forward to going there in the warm weather and relaxing on the dock or porch and just soaking up the river's ambience while surrounded by Linda's beautiful gardens.
4.4 on February 26, 2010
We stayed at Chestnut Hill on Valentine's Day weekend and we couldn't have asked for more. The Inn and the Cottage were pristene. The views from the Cottage were unforgetable. Linda and Rob were the best. They made us feel very comfortable and made themselves available for all our needs. We only wished we could have stayed longer. Three nights was just a tease and can't wait to go back.
5 on February 16, 2010
It's the little things that truly enhance a visit to this special place. From the first greeting, to the last goodbye, the personal touch is evident everywhere. Linda and Rob go out of their way to make one feel not just welcome, but honored guests. The breakfasts were superb; the special Valentines Day touches; fresh cookies in the parlour; fresh flowers in both the room and the bathroom; robes; high quality cotton linens; - amenities not often seen in country inns. This was our second visit, and it definitely won't be our last. We had just what we wanted - a relaxing three-day mini vacation in a uniquely comfortable historic house. We cannot recommend this place more highly.
5 on February 02, 2010
I have been to Chestnut Hill on the Delaware several times. I absolutely love it there. The Innkeepers Rob and Linda are wonderful people and will offer great tips on where to go and serve a great breakfast. The B&B is such a warm and cozy place, and I always feel at peace there. That is why I always go back. It's a great escape from NYC as it's not too far (about an hour or so) and yet it feels like you are somewhere else in a far off place. Great view of the Delaware River too. Overall great place so I highly recommend staying here. Cindy M. from Staten Island, NY
5 on January 19, 2010
I've been a guest at this Inn for 25 years and it has never disappointed me. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the rates are reasonable, the breakfasts are scrumptious, the local attractions and restaurants are fabulous, and the innkeepers, Rob and Linda, are two of the finest people I have ever known. Go there...I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
5 on January 13, 2010
Our first experience with a B&B was at Chestnut Hill more than 20 years ago. We don't get away as often as we would like but we have been to a few B&B's and Chestnut Hill is beyond compare. Sincerely Bonnie & Buddy Suhoskey
5 on December 28, 2009
Linda and Rob make you feel like family. The beautiful and immaculate rooms make you feel so welcome. The breakfast is a 3 course meal served on beautiful china in a cozy dining room. Each bedroom had it's own Christmas tree besides the magnificent tree in the dining room. The hosts think of your every need and make you feel so welcome. The note attached to the staircase welcoming you with your names is a nice touch.

Chestnut Hill on the Delaware is a gem! The room was very private and comfortable and the hospitality provided by the owners was above and beyond our expectations. We celebrated our first wedding anniversary there and we will always cherish our memories of that weekend.
5 on October 04, 2009
My husband surprised me with a getaway for our 15th anniversary. It was a tough year for us due to an unexpected long hospital stay that almost cost me my life. When we arrived, it was like a sweet visit to the Victorian Age. Cozy, pristine, designer-done rooms with comfort and magic all around. Balconies with breathtaking views of the Delaware. Owners who treat you like friends of the family. It was peace at a much-needed time for us. Thank you & God bless you, Linda & Rob.

Beautiful surrondings along the Delaware River. Nicely decorated rooms and designed bathrooms. Host and Hostess most helpful, attentive and caring. Would definitely recommend to friends/relatives who want to get away from the daily wear and tear and simply relax or find plenty in the area to do.

Rob & Linda are the most gracious hosts. They make you feel like close friends they have known forever. My most relaxing weekend in years!

Gorgeous inn nestled on the banks of the Delaware. Rob and Linda were warm, welcoming, and exceeded our expectations. The personal touches of feeling of relaxation were unforgettable!

In addition to being an out-standingly beatiful Victorian Inn on the Delaware River, Chestnut Hill is a spiritual place of happiness, serenity, and refreshment under the loving care of Linda and Rob Castagna, the innkeepers. Guests are treated with plenty of TLC!

Linda and Rob are as good as it gets. The rooms are wonderful, the food is plentiful and delicious.

Outstanding in every way; a real family atmosphere. Only place to stay, in my opinion, when visiting central Jersey!

Milford is an undiscovered getaway that made us feel like we were in a New England village. The Chestnut Hill is a gem of a B&B on the Delaware that was immaculate, welcoming, comfortable and relaxing. Rob and Linda welcomed us with open arms, including an unexpected balloon and treats for our 10th Anniversary. To come home after a great dinner at the Milford Oyster House and find handwritten notes from Linda taped to the bannister wishing us a happy anniversary (again) and asking us to shut out the porch light is something that just doesn't happen at the Hilton. They have restored their home to a luxurious shine and we have been telling all of our friends and neighbors about the paradise so close to home. We will certainly be back to enjoy more of their hospitality.
5 on May 12, 2009
We just returned from our fourth stay at the Chestnut Hill, a wonderful place, owned and "kept" by delightful and gracious hosts. The care shown to us and the welcoming comfort of the entire Inn, but especially "our" Pineapple Room, keep us coming back. Special attention is taken in preparing lovely breakfasts and accommodating special needs. It's a truly divine place that always gives us much needed respite!

Extraordinary hosts who make our stay in this magnificent 1849 renovated house our favorite getaway. We love the veranda where we are mesmerized by the Delaware floating by.

We needed a rest but found much more. Delightful innkeepers, sunshine-filled room. Linda and Rob keep a beautifully decorated and designed inn. Immaculate, too!
5 on February 19, 2009
WE NEEDED A REST! WE FOUND MORE THAN A PEACEFUL, SERENE LOCATION. WE FOUND CHARMING INNKEEPERS, A GORGEOUS ROOM WITH A INCREDIBLE VIEW OF THE RIVER AND BRIDGE, AN UNBELIEVABLE JACUZZI BATHROOM, SUNSHINE IN THE MID OF WINTER, AND EXTREME CLEANLINESS. THE BREAKFASTS WERE AWESOME TOO! LINDA AND ROB WERE SO INTERESTING AND PLEASANT TO TALK WITH AND AT THE SAME TIME AFFORDED THEIR GUESTS THE PRIVACY THEY NEED. THEY KEEP AN IMMACULATE, BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED AND DESIGNED INN. THE AREA RESTAURANTS WERE WONDERFUL, AND COMING FROM NYC AND EXPERIENCING THE MANY PLACES TO EAT IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE CITY, WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED AT THE GOURMET MEALS WE HAD AT THE MILFORD OYSTER HOUSE AND THE FRENCHTOWN INN. SHOPPING IN THE TOWNS GAVE YOU THAT PERFECT SMALL TOWN FEEL. WE CANT WAIT TO GO BACK IN THE SPRING AND FALL! CAROL BIONDO

Chestnut Hill is the only place to go for a true escape!!! Everything about the accommodations and the hosts work to make you feel pampered, relaxed, refreshing, and happy- even if you're only there for 24 hours!

I booked a two night stay at the Chestnut Hill as a surprise get-away for my boyfriend's birthday and it was the most magnificent escape we have shared in our relationship thus far. Innkeepers Linda and Rob have a keen eye for detail and it shows in the whimsical touches that each of their rooms afford. You will not find this kind of comfort and magic in any hotel! We found that Linda and Rob are truly generous and caring souls and we were honored to have met them. If you are looking for a wonderful and romantic way to reconnect to the love of your life and celebrate the beauty of your relationship, book a stay at the Chestnut Hill! My boyfriend and I cannot wait to return!

My wife first introduced me to the Chestnut Hill for a birthday gift in September. We enjoyed the experience so much we have been back twice for our Anniversary in December. Linda and Rob can taylor the experience to your needs. This time we went walking down the snow covered train tracks that run right by the house, right next to the Deleware river. The last time we crossed the river and walked on the tow path to the canal the runs right next to the river. The views are spectacular. We stayed in the Summer Morning room, which has a real jacuzzi tub for two, an overhead shower with wonderful water pressure, a view of the same Delarware river to die for. Linda is a fantastic cook! Last but most important is Linda and Rob are wonderful people you will be blessed to know. We have enjoyed them each and everytime, and their company is the highlight of each visit. This is how the bed and breakfast experience is meant to be, you will not be dissappointed.

From our first contact with Linda, we were extremely impressed with the warmth and welcoming feeling we received. We were looking for a weekend getaway to celebrate our 14th and the websearch landed us there. A phone call to Linda and we were booked. The accomodations were incredible. Beautiful room, welcoming amenities, and Linda and Rob's treatment of guests as if we were family coming for Sunday dinner. Rob offered us a ride on the river, which we jumped at and listened to his historical perspective of the area. Quite interesting. Breakfast's were outstanding, with Linda preparing dishes both delicious and in line with the tastes of the guests. Linda was so great with her suggestions for lunch and dinner which we appreciated and took advantage of. The result was a thoughly enjoyable weekend, relaxing, and unfortgetable. This place is a real gem.

Stayed in the Summer Morning room which is gorgeous, the bed is so comfortable, the carpet so soft, not a speck of dust to be seen anywhere its like the room had just been decorated that day for our visit. The bathroom is also really nice with the jacuzzi tub and large shower. Breakfast is served in the lovely dining room and is delicious. Linda & Rob are so friendly and welcoming. When we left after 3 days I felt like I was leaving family. We definately intend to return.

Bob & Linda area a wonderful host & hostess. The caring and incredible attention to detail in every aspect of our stay made this a memorable experience.
5 on September 27, 2008
My husband and I have stayed at Chestnut Hill twice now and both times we have come away feeling refreshed and renewed. Rob and Linda are not only the Innkeepers but it is obvious they love what they do and enjoy the people they meet. We feel as though we're spending time with family while we are there. The boat ride up the Delaware River is a wonderfully peaceful experience and the small town of Milford and Frenchtown are quaint and warm. The room we stayed in, and view from it, were so comforting that we could have easily just stayed in our room for the duration of our visit. Chestnut Hill will always be at the top of my list for positive experiences. Thank you Rob and Linda!
5 on September 22, 2008
Stayed for the first time in June and have gone back each month since. It is a wonderful Inn. Innkeepers, Linda and Rob are WONDERFUL as well as their staff. We enjoy the peace and quiet of the area. I can honestly say that it is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed at.

The most romantic anniversary weekend in the 25 years of our marriage. The morning suite was wonderful. All I had hoped for and more. It was clean, spacious, romantic and we enjoyed every minute of it.
5 on July 02, 2008
We've stayed at Chestnut Hill several times...in the Country Cottage and in the main house...we love it more and more every time. During every season, there's something new to see and experience. The location is beautiful, the accommodations are lovely, and the ambiance is so romantic. You can't help but fall in love all over again. Rob and Linda are wonderful innkeepers. The local restaurants are delicious and the winerys are so much fun! We've thought about staying somewhere else in the same area that's a little cheaper, but we don't want to be disappointed. We always go back to Chestnut Hill!

We've stayed in approximately fifteen inns since our wedding day. Chestnut Hill on the Delaware was the best! The inn, the hospitality, the area--all first, first rate! Wonderful!

The house was situated right on the river with lots of outside seating available. Our room had a private balcony--well lit at night, it was on the third floor all by itself. The innkeepers were lovely and helpful--excellent stay.

We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts and this one is a winner. I can not say enough good things about this place. The view of the river is wonderful. We especially enjoyed sitting on the rockers on the porch and watching the sunset. The hosts Linda and Rob are warm friendly people and very helpful. The place was very clean and the room was nicely decorated. Both days during our stay we were served a delicious breakfast. It was my birthday and Linda made me feel special. We have already booked our next stay at this wonderful place. Thanks for a wonderful weekend. Eileen and Mike Beard

Chestnut Hill on the Delaware is special. Each room is beautiful, spotless, the location of the inn-tranquil. Rob & Linda, owners, are perfect hosts-kind, friendly, but understand your desire to "get away" with your loved one! This is the B&B my husband and I head to when we are longing for that needed retreat. Milford, NJ is tiny, but lovely and there are great restaurants in town and nearby. Go and be blessed!

We live in New Jersey and really needed a quick place to drive to, but still feel far away. Chestnut Hill did that for us. Quiet, close by, but far away in the feel of the place.

My husband and I have spent many special occasions at this magnificent inn. The cleanliness and the attention to detail in all rooms are wonderful. All the special touches, right down to the caligraphy notes and the balloons left in your room, make this the perfect place to rest, relax and rejuvenate. The innkeepers are truly gracious and loving people. Milford is a great little town and the surrounding towns offer plenty of shopping opportunities. We will continue to come back to Chestnut Hill and have sent many family and friends who have enjoyed their stays as much as we have.
