Wonderful Stay - You Must Experience for Yourself

4.8 on September 26, 2012

Once in awhile you stumble upon one of those special places that speaks to you. his was one of those special places where you can actually feel its positive energy upon entering & at that precise moment you know you found a unique place & just soothes your soul.The location & views are just one of the perks & unique attributes.There are some small, tranquil resting areas in the back of their property facing the river with a fountain, sitting areas, little tables to enjoy some snacks, drinks or conversation. Clair sets up a bonfire in the evenings which is warm and cozy. I did not get to plan this stay in advance but I can tell you that our Room 6 Village View Suite ha so much character & unique details that even without the waterview this has to be a room that I would surely choose again. The freehand paintings through out two rooms are so well done & so colorful & appealing that you can't help but feel special to have such artistic & personalized space all to yourselves. The eclectic furniture pieces, artistry & craftmanship of all the wood work is quite impressive. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean. Clair was a pleasure & greeted us like a family member. We had an anniversary gift in our room that was so sweet and unexpected. Later upon returning to our room they had the bed turned down and Lindt chocolates placed for us with a little note. I could not have asked for more when it came to hospitality & quality of room. Breakfast was unique & delicious.Coffee had great taste. I ordered their special pizza breakfast selection & fresh figs with a nice honey drizzel over a dollop of greek yougurt. Wife ordered the omelet special & we split our two choices & loved both. Upper Black Eddy with its serenity & being a bit removed does compliment & add to appeal of Bridgeton House. The level of hospitality and service that Clair delivered, the unique location and room selection made our little Anniversary getaway very memorable.

We ADORE The Bridgeton House

My Fiance and I have stayed at this beautiful B&B twice, one stay was for about 5 nights. It was our fist experience staying in a B&B and it met all of our expectations. We have chaotic work schedules and this place brought such peacefulness and serenity into our lives during the stay. Our favorite part of the experience is sitting on the pier at night sipping tea looking at the bridge and watching the river flow by. We always stay in the Riverview Suite, it's quite private and set off to the side. During chilly nights there is an option to have the fireplace on which creates an gorgeous ambience in the room as well as the jacuzzi!!! The bathroom is spacious, clean and we love the amenities. It's a perfect romantic getaway providing everything you would need to feel cozy and comfortable. We are now planning another 7 day stay at the inn. The innkeepers are very sweet and helpful with great ideas of places to go and things to see. If you like Italian food there is an Italian Pizzeria that has better dinner dishes than a 5 star restaurant in NYC called Galassos. One of the inn Keeprs recommended it and though at first we were put off by it appearing as a pizza joint we soon forgot when the meals were served. It is casual and delicious!!! We have fallen in love with Frenchtown and this inn and are even considering moving to the area because we have had such an amazing experience there!!! The only reason I did not give stars on the dining is because we have not had the pleasure of enjoying the meals at inn just yet. On our short stay we ate out all the time and slept in missing breakfast and on our long stay there we were on diets :/ But with the quality of this inn I would assume the food is delicious!!! I give this B&B a high recommendation!!! It has stolen our hearts!!!!

I have spent time at the Bridgetown house with my husband and it is so enviting and relaxing it feels I am worlds away from the everyday stress.

My favorite place to be pampered!

I found it by accident...and never turned back! I just adore the Bridgeton House! It is so incredibly peaceful, so tranquil and even more comfortable. When I am in my favorite Riverside Suite, I just feel really "special"! Its very romantic to lay riverside with your special someone, snuggle up with a book in the chaise lounge or play cards on the screened in porch with a glass of sherry. Its truly one of my favorite places on earth!

Better than the Beach

f you're looking tranquility, comfort, and great water view, skip the shore and reserve a room at the Bridgeton House in Upper Black Eddy, PA on the Delaware River. The town is pretty sleepy, but we walked across the bridge to Milford, NJ for an excellent dinner at the Oyster House. There's a brew pub there, too, called the Ship. The multiple restaurants of New Hope and Lambertville are a scenic 20-mile drive away. Lots more inns and restaurants in between means you can come back again and again without running out of options. We came for a quiet two days of reading and hiking along the river. We took the penthouse for the expansive deck and unparalleled view of the river. Even though we hit the only chilly, cloudy day of the week this March, we sat in comfortable leather recliners inside and still had a beautiful view through rows of sliding glass doors. The bed also faces the river, and the fireplace, and the TV. Good coffee, great breakfasts, colorful decor, and unobtrusive but attentive staff made for a very relaxing mini-spring-break. Smaller rooms offer still-great views for a lot less cash.
