Life in NYC, with its fast pace, is often the norm. Do we even realize that we have no time to chat with friends we meet unexpectedly? Life in the small town of New Hope is calm, peaceful, and inviting. There is still nightlife, nice restaurants and bars. We first visited THE WEDGEWOOD INN over 15 years ago and we go back at least once a year. It is charming and welcoming, a perfect bed and breakfast in a great location. The owners are usually on site with great suggestions and the staff is equally friendly and helpful. The decor is eclectic antique with modern bathrooms and amenities. Our favorite "rooms" are actually the Boathouse, which is a small independent structure and the top floor of the Umpleby House. A delicious breakfast is served in a usually sunny large and beautiful room. Or it can be brought to your room if you prefer. Coffee and homemade cookies and fruit are available all day.
This is a very special place to visit during the holiday season. The decorations in and around town are amazing. Many rooms have fireplaces, match ready and easy to light,, with plenty of wood provided.
The area of New Hope and it's neighboring town , Lambertville are filled with artisan shops. You can walk from New Hope, which is in PA, to Lambertville in NJ by crossing a bridge over the Deleware River. There are also canals with fabulous bike paths.
Now that we live in Hawaii, we only come once a year, on our annual Christmas visit to the NY area.
