Recently we had the pleasure of staying at the newly acquired and renovated Pineapple Hill Inn in New Hope, PA. Both the Inn and the area were a revelation. New Hope is not only a historic village, but also a haven for bikers, walkers, and hikers. Less than 1/4 mile from the Inn was an entrance to the Delaware Canal State Park which goes along the Delaware River for miles and miles. If exercise isn't what you're looking for, New Hope is filled with antique shops, boutiques, and excellent food. Of course, one does not need to leave the grounds of Pineapple Hill to enjoy the weekend. The new innkeeps, Scott & Roy, are totally charming and run a five star facility. We were given a tour of all the accommodations and would have been happy in any of them. Breakfast, as well as afternoon snacks, was fantastic. We look forward to returning and not only further exploring the area but also luxuriating in the warmth of the Pineapple Inn.

Set on almost 6 acres, this Bucks County bed-and-breakfast rests between New Hope's center and Washington Crossing Park and also within minutes to Peddlers Village.

On the grounds, the walls of a stone barn enclose a beautifully hand-tiled pool. throughout the property, are many of the original stone ruins, now enhanced by lovely perennial gardens.
