“Absolutley loved the Kase Cottage with Private Garden!”
Reviewed 25 June 2008

Our weekend Getaway couldn't have been more perfect!
We stayed in the private Kase cottage at the Widow McCrea House.
It was beautifully decorated and perfect for the 2 of us. The Inn has just been re-landscaped since our last visit (this is our 3rd stay) and they did a fabulous job. The Kase Cottage has a stunning Italian style garden complete with statuary and a fountain. It is truly a private and beautiful addition to an already magical place.
This is our little slice of heaven, and we think you will enjoy it too.

  • Liked — The privacy of the garden and the jacuzzi for 2

We stayed at Widow McCrea for two nights. Very reasonably priced. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room facing the back. Do not ask for the Rittenhouse Room. It faces the front of the house, a main road. Truck traffic started about 6:00am. The inn serves a gourmet breakfast (3 courses) with ghost stories, and provides a lovely bottle of wine in the room. We thought the comforter in the Rittenhouse room needed updating. Close to town and some excellent restaurants. All in all, a nice experience.

  • Liked — Proximity to town and the bike path.
  • Disliked — Comforter as a blanket for sleeping.

The owners of the Inn were very personable, accommodating and gracious.The particular room we stayed in was beautifully appointed and very clean. The room had a lovely queen size canopy bed, antique decor and a nice size bathroom. The homemade 3 course breakfast was magnificant and plentiful. We were very impressed and will definitely be going back soon. It was truly a great find at a great price!

We stayed at the Widow McCrea House this weekend. It was our anniversary and we were hoping to have a very special weekend. I am happy to report that we really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. The place is very nicely furnished in antiques. It is very clean and believe me I am quite fussy about cleanliness! The owners are friendly and helpful. There is lots to do near the B&B. We love the area because there are very nice bike paths along the river. It is quite beautiful. The restaurants in the area are very good and there are many art gallerys and shops.
I would definitely stay at this B&B again.

  • Liked — The breakfast was fantastic!
  • Disliked — I would have liked to have some bottled water and fruit for the guests. There is no sidewalk to get to the parking which is behind the B&B.

Absolutely no complaints! We originally wanted to book a place right in New Hope for the holiday weekend but were too late. We were lucky enough to book the cottage at Widow McCrea and were totally delighted. To be honest, we didn't visit the main house - as the cottage had everything we could want ---- atmosphere, plenty of space, and more than enough provisions.
Lynn was helpful with suggestions and maps --- the area was friendly and nice. We would definitely return !

As part of a weekend getaway, my wife and I decided to stay at our first bed and breakfast. The ambiance of the Widow McCrea was exceptional. Although it was Christmas time, the decorations were very festive, but also neutral enough so that it wasn't offensive to other religions. The breakfasts were top notch! Really unbelievable. The host and hostess very extremely hospitable. We spent time visiting the surrounding little towns and had a great time.

Lets face it, March is not the premiere month to vacation in NJ. That said, let me tell you what a great time we had at the Widow McCrea House.
Although the weather was cool and dreary, the Inn's hostess/owner Lynn was sunny, gracious and pleasant. A refreshing change from some of the tired, weary and obviously "burnt out" Innkeepers we have encountered over the years. The Widow McCrea House has been in operation since 1997 and the owners attitude is a shining example of someone who loves her Inn, her guests, and is a testiment to professionalism in a business that can undoubtedly be challenging.

What made our weekend even more enjoyable is that the owner is a life long equestrian as are we. We spent many enjoyable hours swapping stories, talking horses and admiring her collection of antique and vintage equestrian equipment that is displayed throughout the Inn.

Our room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The only negative comment I can make (and this is only so I don't appear to be gushing about the place) is that as in any old structure (this was once a victorian house before it became an Inn) sounds, voices and other rooms TV's, can be heard. Personally, this does not bother me, as I understand the nature of B & B's in general.Having lived in NYC for many years prior to relocating to my current home in VA, I am not effected by much. These are common things and can be expected.

The breakfasts were wonderful and actually more than I would eat on most days entirely! We enjoyed meeting and socializing with the other guests.

Local dining is top shelf and Frenchtown is quaint and charming with friendly locals.

Overall, we completely enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning this summer.
