We stayed here a few months ago as an overnight getaway and absolutely fell in love with the place and owners. We stayed in Room #1 in the Main House. It was exquisitely furnished, spacious, with a private bath. We even had our own private entry/exit door to a secluded back porch. The only downside of the room is that it is right off the dining room, so at breakfast, it can be a bit noisy (or if you're wanting to be "romantic," it's not exactly soundproof). Breakfast was homemade country deliciousness. I couldn't get enough of the pastries! We enjoyed staying here so much that we're planning to go again in September!

We highly recommend Porches B&B ! Wanting to explore this part of the Delaware River Valley we hoped to find a comfortable B&B within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Our 4 day stay at Porches exceeded our expectations. Our hosts (including MeMe the ever present 4-legged one!) could not have been more accomodating. And receiving my left-behind earrings (despite having assured them I had "everything"! in the mail was a very nice surprise. Ava and Dave Little, CT

My girlfriends and I found Porches B & B to be the perfect escape from our hectic lives. What a treat to enjoy John's beautifully decorated rooms - each different and unique. The morning breakfast was tasty and so enjoyable. The hospitality, wonderful. The location of the inn, perfect. You will love New Hope and you will love Porches!

We stayed in the upstairs yellow room with a door to the porch. It was sunny and charming, clean and completely met our needs. Even better were the inn keeper, John, and his darling Meme (the inn Jack Russell), who adopted us (and everyone else) immediately. We immensely enjoyed sitting around the breakfast table after a hearty breakfast (different each day) and chatting with other guests and with the inn keeper who also gave us an inside track to finding the things we were looking for in the antique and garden shops. He also steered us to the Monday night locals dinner restaurant—such a plus when you are new to a town. We loved New Hope and will come back for another stay at Porches, a visit with Meme, and a reprise to the wonderful arts, crafts and antique shops.

Upon arriving I was thrilled with the charming outdoor area and the look of the various buildings from the outside. I liked the overgrown outdoor area. It is clean and the proprietors were welcoming. The location for visiting New Hope and Lambertville and walking around is fantastic. However, I was more than ready to leave after 2 days. The sheets were clean but the bedspread worn and not something I wanted to cover myself with. The room was very damp and dark. The decor in the rooms clearly needs to be maintained better- lumpy chairs, drapes not completely hooked; no comfortable seating in the room. When we tried to sit in the parlor in the evening the musty smell was unpleasant and also no comfortable seating in there. There were only a couple of hangers available to use; the soap fell apart with first use; we had to ask for a hair dryer. Breakfast the first morning was tasty but there was no choice and my sister who is a vegetarian had basically nothing but a fruit cup to eat since the only food available other than the small fruit cup was an egg & sausage casserole. We were not asked if we wanted water or more juice. There was no 1/2 & 1/2 available for coffee and even though we expressed a desire for it there was still none available the second morning. Even though eating outside was an option, when we asked to do this the second morning it was evident that we were not making the hostess happy about it. Napkins were not ironed, linens clearly aged. Breakfast the second morning really bad - soggy baked french toast. And again, no other choice. No, I won't stay there again.
