“Weekend at Chimney Hill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

I'll start by saying our weekend at Chimney Hill started late afternoon Friday October 25th. We were met by the Inn keepers who were in an office area near the kitchen. A brief introduction followed by key issue and a code to be used to enter the Inn's front door..presumably after hours.
We found our room in the Barn (#2) to be poorly lit but managed that...the dated bathroom was not up to standard for what's believed to be a step above...one redeeming factor was the bed, a very good nights sleep.....With only 20 + guests, one would think the staff would be more attentive. Sunday morning was disappointing with breakfast not ready and coffee service a bust....when we finally accessed the main house we and other guests stood by not acknowledged by the kitchen staff.....we enjoyed New Hope and Lambertville but Chimney Hill's got to do better....

Room Tip: Check the New Hope properties...

My fiance & I were at Chimney Hill October 20, 2013 to celebrate our anniversary and oh my geez...what a beautiful wonderful place! When I placed the reservation, Deb was extremely helpful and gave us a great rate. She also provided us information on a discount gift certificate for purchase for dinner that evening (which turned out to be excellent as well).

Upon check in, we were greeted by a delightful young lady who was very helpful and also provided us with FREE alpaca feed (and a good amount too). We located our room (Barn Suite #4) and once we walked in, we felt like we were in a different world. The room was absolutely divine-very antique and cozy feeling. There was a tv in the room, however we did not utilize it at all because the atmosphere alone embraced and entertained you. Our room had a dual fireplace, lovely shower, very comfortable bed, spiral staircase and more. We will definitely be back for sure! We truly enjoyed every bit of it.

Just a tip-if you are looking for a modern bed & breakfast, this is not your place to be. This place seems to pride itself on being unique and having an antique feel to it; which is what makes it so quality!

Room Tip: Barn Suite #4

Wonderful anniversary stay. Staff was so friendly and accommodating! Had an issue with the heat and called the innkeeper and he was up within seconds to fix it! Thanks Rich! He even made sure to put a heater outside our room to keep is warm! We loved the alpacas and everyone was so nice. A bit overpriced if you don't have a LS or groupon deal. Breakfast was not good. Burned French toast soufflés and warm yogurt parfait. Other than the bad food and the out of date bathroom it was perfect! Bed so comfy and people so nice. Thanks for making our stay a great one!

We stayed for 2 nights in the barn Suite #3. I had higher expectations, as I know Chimney Hill was on the Select Registry list in the past. There were holes in the towels, the pillows were old and worn and the bed was very uncomfortable. We think the most important part to update would be the bathroom, the shower has seen better days, the door was broken on the shower. So disappointed with the room. We find it hard to believe that the going price without a groupon was 425.00 a nite. We enjoyed our time in Lambertville and new Hope. Please, please make updates.

I have just returned from a girls trip to the Chimney Hill Estate and I was so pleasantly surprised! First of all I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast or in Lambertville before. I'm a New Hope/Peddlers Village person, but I was sooo happy that we did! You drive up this little dirt road (Goat Hill Rd) to come upon a beautiful setting of the Chimney Hill Inn. We were welcomed for an early check in by Terri and Rich who gave us the key and our wine vouchers for the local winery. We could not actually go to the room (it wasn't ready) but it was such a pleasure to receive all of our information so we can take our time around town. The house is charming! Beautiful, spotless and all the comforts of home and THEN SOME! We stayed in the Barn Suite #1 which was fabulous. There is a living room with a small sofa, table and chairs, fireplace and TV. terrific...the bathroom is modern and spotless! The bedroom was after that, very comfortable bed, another TV, a cute chair and a terrace out back with a table and chair. I was nervous after seeing reviews about cleanliness, but this is NOT the case, so please don't listen to negative reviews! Amenities included: a microwave, small refrigerator, blow dryer, coffee maker with china cups and dishes. Everything that you could need, so don't worry about bringing coolers with water (you have the refrigerator) blow dryer (they have a good one!) or anything else. Everything is provided. Breakfast the next day consisted of a fresh homemade fruit cup with strawberries and fresh mint! very nice touch...The second course were delicious homemade potatoes, eggs and a slice of fresh ham! My friend who is a vegetarian had her needs met as well. no meat on the plate, etc. they put little candy corn on the plate for decoration, another nice touch! and last but not least were the Alpacas! A bag of food per person is included in your stay for the Alpacas. What beautiful gentle animals! I had a blast...Please do not listen to negative reviews. I can't wait to go back with my husband! Clean, Beautiful property with lovely owners!! Everyone we met all felt the same! Thank you Terri and Rich! I will see you soon!

Room Tip: Barn Suite #1 was very nice, clean and perfect!

We spent the weekend in New Hope/Lambertville and stayed at Chimney Hill. The place was immaculate and our accommodations were top notch. We recommend it and plan to return in the future. it was referred to us by an experienced B&B fan who lists it as her favorite. Our only regret is we didn't stay an additional night.

A group of us meet annually to celebrate our college friendship and this year we choose the Chimney Hill Estates based on Trip Adviser reviews. What a disappointment. The room we spent the night in had stained carpet, holes in the blankets, shredded curtains and a toilet that randomly flushed all night.
We were there in prime season and the rates were extremely high and it was the worst value ever. The breakfast was pedestrian and mediocre. A slice of bacon, scrambled eggs and home fries does not a gourmet meal make! We also got to "share" a tiny loaf of cranberry bread. REALLY???
I don't know what's going on with this place but it certainly has a lot of potential and if they would utilize the artisans in the area it would go a long way to making this outdated and underwhelming place a little better.
