“The view is worth it alone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

If you haven't been to this area then run to this B&B. Not only is the view breathtaking but Kurt and Alan are the most gracious hosts we have come across who run a B&B. They have a ritual that I haven't experienced at another B&B and absolutely loved it. At 5pm they have hors d'oeuvres with all the guests gathered around on the deck. It is a great chance to meet the other guests and everyone to chat with each other. Alan and Kurt have great stories themselves which just adds to the fun. It is also the time that Kurt takes your breakfast order (more on that later)

Walking up from the parking area to the deck where you enter the house is nothing short of spectacular. You are high above the Delaware River and can see for miles all around. I can only imagine what the view must be like during the fall foliage season.

The inside of the house is beautiful. We stayed on the first floor in the Sunset I room where it was spacious with a very nice bathroom.

Breakfast is excellent with a wide selection of choices. And of course, visiting when it is warm takes the breakfast up a notch as you are sitting on the deck looking at the views. I won't spoil it (as someone almost did for us and Kurt almost had their head) but you want to stay for Sunday breakfast as there are specials only served then.

The last thing I will say is that Alan and Kurt pay particular attention to detail. My wife made the arrangements and mentioned it was a belated birthday celebration. Upon entering our room we saw a tray with 2 champagne glasses, a small bottle of champagne and a note wishing her a belated birthday. Later in our stay I mentioned to Alan my wife needed some Q-tips. Not only did he say there were some in the kit in the bathroom, but later in the day she had extras!!!

We have been to several B&B's over the years in many different parts of the area and country and have to say this one is the best - from the views to the hosts to the wonderful breakfast. You won't go wrong!!!

We were so happy to discover Ecce. Everything is superb from the view to the furnishings, attention to detail and the amazing hosts.
The 'Woods' room was spacious and spotless and so comfortable.
The hosts Alan and Kurt perfectly balance attentiveness with privacy, providing outstanding breakfasts and afternoon 'snacks' all freshly prepared and delicious and ample choices for us vegetarians. They are so thoughtful - as soon as you see an eagle soaring over the river binoculars appear. We booked our next visit before leaving and can't wait to return. W & B

Never have we been so impressed by a bed and breakfast. From the moment we read their directions to ECCE, we knew these were owners who paid attention to detail and quality and who cared about making their guests feel at home. Alan and Kurt knew what we wanted before we did..


Our room was beautiful. The Sunrise Room gives you a view of the Delaware River and the mountains that is spectacular... And it comes with your own private balcony. You feel as if you are in the clouds and the weather is happening below you. There are snacks in the room, treats each night (different every day!!) beverages constantly being restocked in your own frig and all complimentary.

The breakfasts are amazing. Home made granola is perfection. The omelettes, French toast, and the Sunday surprise--eggs in the clouds and monkey bread--are all excellent. We are vegetarian, and we never felt as if we were missing out.. We were never hungry enough to eat lunch.

The hosts help you find restaurants, things to do, and the 5 pm social hour with wine and home made hors d'oeuvres is lovely (or if you prefer, your privacy is respected).

We will come back for sure. You should find your way to ECCE. You will have a fabulous time.

Room Tip: Sunrise room is great for early risers

Ecce is the best bed and breakfast we have been to in the world (and we have been to many)! Alan and Kurt provide an amazing house with gorgeous rooms, breathtaking views over the Delaware, a full menu of SEVERAL breakfast entrees with a wide variety of tastes to choose from and great conversation over afternoon cocktail and appetizer hour! Alan and Kurt attend to every need of their guests and are superb hosts! We will continue our tradition of coming here in the future.

We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary here. My husband surprised me by not telling me where we were going until we arrived. We'll I have to say I loved the entire place. The views are beyond belief, just gorgeous. The house was immaculate and beautiful. Lots of interesting art work. Best of all the hosts were gracious and very welcoming, and the breakfast and hors d'oeuvres were delicious. We already planned on coming back to ecce.

5 stars would be unfair for this B&B. we have visited many other B&B's, hands down this is the best we've been to. Everything from the welcome, to the room, to the location, the meals , the service, the hospitality, the understanding, the need to exceed expectations. Alan and Kurt truly deserve every 5 star rating that is given. I say it is unfair to give a 5 star rating because it should have the option to rate it as a 10 star. The best we have been to. Nothing will disappoint. As we did, you will absolutely want to book your return visit before you leave.

Room Tip: We had the Woods room. Perfect!

DO, NOT, STAY HERE. You will absolutely be spoiled for any other B&B you encounter in your life. My wife and I planned a much needed weekend away from our darling baby. The people and location of Ecce reenergized and made us realize that there was a beautiful world out there beyond the so far dark endless nights of crying and lack of sleep at home.

Alan and Kurt fed us, the starving parents that we are, with insanely beautiful omelets for breakfast, wonderful recommended local restaurants and non mundane conversation. There was not a second of boredom.
The bedding was downy soft and fresh smelling to soothe our exhausted souls.

There's nothing to say to truly express how wonderful this place was, we are going back!

So, go at your own peril but do not say you were not warned!
