“Very Relaxing Getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We had a very relaxing stay at Woolverton. When you arrive at the property you immediately feel relaxed. There are no TVs in the rooms but this was not an issue at all as there is WiFi in the room. Breakfast was great. The piña colada scones were sinfully delicious. Having 24x7 access to the kitchen stocked with homemade cookies and soda was an unexpected treat. The bed was comfy. So comfy that we bought a couple of the pillows so we could have some of the comfort at home. If you a looking for a relaxing, peaceful, hassle free stay, Woolverton will not disappoint.

First time visiting this Inn for a New Hope Anniversary weekend. We really enjoyed ourselves, thanks to a nice quiet stay and beautiful weather in November. We stayed in the Audubon room, which was very private and spacious. There is no TV, in case that is important to you! The bed was so comfortable, and it has a small outdoor porch area. We took advantage of breakfast in bed each morning, and it was great! The Inn has a quaint, old fashioned cottage country feel. Do yourself a favor and make dinner reservations at Marsha Brown's in town. Truly a special occasion meal in beautiful surroundings. It's a quick drive to New Hope, though it's a dark and winding road at night. Peddler's Village is very close also. We had a nice meal there at Cock n Bull Restaurant with delicious martinis. Wish we had time for Tasting & Tours wine trip! Next time.....

Room Tip: Audubon Room is very spacious & private. You can look at your window and see the sheep! Note: th...

We had an absolutely amazing time at the Woolverton Inn for our 5th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the "Stockton's Hideaway" which we found to be very private and comfortable. It had a very nice bathroom with a large shower and hot tub. The bed was comfortable, the large window seat was very comfortable, and the room had very pretty views. There was a gas fireplace which would have been nice if it were a cool weekend. The owners of the Inn were very nice and very willing to help in any way to make for a better stay. The breakfast was DELICIOUS! Definitely the best breakfasts we've had. The grounds around the Inn were very well kept and it was very peaceful to stroll around. From checking out the website, I had expected more areas to walk around by the Inn but it was still wonderful and so many fun things to do nearby. We biked on the tow path, checked out Peddler's Village and New Hope, took a stroll from the Inn down to the bridge to watch the sunset and tried to relax as much as possible. We definitely hope to go back to the Woolverton Inn! It was a great find and I would highly recommend it for a romantic getaway!

Spent a long weekend there, and it was so beautiful! We stayed in the "Amelia's Suite" which was breathtaking! From the beautiful comfortable canopy feather bed, the fireplace, the 2 person bath tub, everything was just so charming and so relaxing! I highly recommend this wonderful Bed and Breakfast!

Room Tip: All are wonderful from what I understand, but I can only highly recommend the Amelia's Suite!!

I have absolutely no complaints about this Inn. It was a wonderful setting for a romantic getaway. My husband ordered the romantic package. I have the lovely roses setting on my desk in my office to remind me of my wonderful overnight retreat with him. I loved the setting, and how private it was. The staff were so friendly. I had never been in that area of NJ. It was a refreshing alternative option than to a shore getaway! The breakfast was so special. I would definitely go again!

Room Tip: Had the Leticias room. It was very quaint. We had a steam shower and jacuzzi tub!

The Woolverton Inn is a fixture in the area. In the historic main building there is a wall filled with framed, favorable reviews just outside the business office. One can read unanimous praise for the combination of modern convenience and period charm, rural setting and proximity to New York and Philadelphia. I humbly agree with all this as my wife and I enjoyed the gracious staff, ambitious breakfasts and (mostly) peaceful atmosphere only an hour-and-a-half from our own megalopolis, Manhattan. HOWEVER, I have some gripes that TripAdvisor readers should be aware of in the course of deciding whether to spend 185-465 dollars per night on holiday weekends. We stayed over the Memorial Day holiday 2014 and our comments are based on our three-night stay, which was required to book the room.

Our room, the Amelia Suite, the second most expensive option after the modern cottages (which are fifty yards or more from the main building), lies directly over the kitchen and was beset with cooking odors after 7AM every day. A vibrating exhaust fan ruined the peace at the same time; surely they could dampen the sound in some way. But as is, the serenity vanished after sunrise. This particular suite is deliberately dark and old-fashioned in its décor. But it was unappealing to us, with quirks by the dozen, including creaky floors, windows prone to slam shut unless propped open (getting them open is a chore), rugs you can trip on, and a claustrophobic feel despite the king bed, which was indeed comfortable and dressed luxuriously (pillows, however, are hard and lumpy). It didn’t help that the smoke detector started to chirp with a low battery in the middle of the night. We imagine that other rooms in the main building, beautiful as it is, suffer similar quirks. No question about it, if you can afford the cottages, that’s the way to go, as they are much more private, appear to be centrally air-conditioned, and abut the sheep meadow so that these dear animals (see pics) can come right up to your window.

Three cheers for the staff. They were unfailingly cordial, having left us a personal note, filled with helpful information, to greet us on our very late arrival. They also made dinner reservations for us with unerring judgment. Breakfast was served indoors or out, and we especially appreciated the beautiful terrace where one can dine in peace at small individual tables; no forced, family-style meals necessary. We encountered an equal number of young, middle-aged (like us), and older couples contrary to a snarky reviewer who wrongly observed an exclusively aged clientele. And one can walk to the Delaware-Raritan towpath right from the hotel. You can also walk to one of the best wine shops in the region, and there are restaurants in town (especially Brian’s Kitchen) where you can bring your own bottle.

All that having been said, there ain’t much to do here other than walk, bike ride or simply read the Times in peace (the hotel provides it free-of-charge). It had been over ten years since I was last in New Hope and Lambertville, and the former has grown ever more commercial. We especially liked the historic steam locomotive and the children’s museum. Lambertville has its share of serious antique shops on Union Street, and some fine restaurants (Black Bass Inn chief among them). But the rest is more like Key West or Provincetown than Princeton—or Brooklyn! Much as we admire the Inn’s values, how about saving a few hundred dollars (per night) by staying at the Hampton Inn in Doylestown where we once had a delightful weekend and drove just a bit farther to the area’s attractions. . . ? A large family might want to consider that option, as the Woolverton (sheep included) has more of a romantic, couples-getaway feel to it.

Room Tip: Avoid in-house suites (creaky, noisy) in favor of the cottages, any of which are beautiful.

This property was an absolute dream, and a must-stop for anyone wanting to experience quintessential Pennsylvania charm (even though it's technically in New Jersey). My husband and I stayed in the Cotswold Cottage, and it was just what every luxury wooded getaway should be. Incredibly soft towels and bathrobes, lovely jacuzzi bath, huge stone-tiled shower, fireplace, and wonderfully comfortable bed. We awoke to sheep roaming right outside our window, and delicious hot breakfast was brought to our room. The best thing about this place was certainly the privacy and location, and we will definitely go back and stay longer next time!
