Chestnut Hill on the Delaware

63 Church Street , Milford, NJ 08848 USA (Show map)


Two wonderfully restored Victorian homes overlooking the scenic Delaware River and Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The guest rooms exude a sense of warmth and romance no matter what season you visit. The Country Cottage provides two all-suite apartments with kitchens for those guests who prefer to be alone. Both houses have access to the beautiful river front terraced gardens, deck and dock. River access is nearby so bring your boat, canoe, kyack or tube. Many guests enjoy bringing their lunch or dinner back to the inn to enjoy one of the many dining locations provided by the river's edge.

Amazing innkeepers and beautiful home!

4.0 on November 08, 2016

My family and I have stayed here multiple times and love Rob and Linda and their home. We have recommended and sent quite a number of couples here for special getaways and continue to whole-heartedly endorse them! Please do note that they do NOT accept bedandbreakfast dot com gift certificates. I just called them to confirm. The listing on this site should be updated so as not to mislead people interested in visiting with gift cards as payment! This B&B is beautiful at all times of year but Christmas is a special treat with all of the incredible decor and events in the surrounding area.

Innkeeper Response
We are so grateful for your visits with us and need to apologize for confusion over accepting gift certificates. We have been with Bed & for years, we still are and continue to accept their gift certificates. We have, however, discontinued taking gift certificates from other companies.

We have stayed at Chestnut Hill on the Delaware many times because it is such an amazing place. As soon as you pull up to the property, you begin to relax. The view from the front porch is beautiful and serene. Linda and Rob are the perfect hosts. They are warm and friendly and do everything possible to help their guests have a relaxing and peaceful time. The rooms are immaculate and tastefully decorated. Every morning the delicious breakfast are served. The are not only tasty but the presentation of the food is great. We really enjoyed going out with Rob on the pontoon boat. We highly recommend Chestnut Hill on the Delaware and will definitely be returning many more times.It is our favorite B & B. Eileen and Mike

Wonderful getaway weekend

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.

It Was Like Heaven

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

Our 3rd trip to the Inn!

5 on July 13, 2012

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.

Pure Relaxation

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.

So very delightful

Cinnamon-raisin stuffed French toast
I love to make my stuffed French toast. I fill the pocket with apricots, toasted pecans, and cranberries mixed with sour cream and cream cheese. It will fill you for sure until a late lunch somewhere in our wonderful river valley.
