When you stay at our hotel in Bucks County, PA, you step into a home that is full of history. From its early days as a private residence to its current use as a boutique hotel, the New Hope inn has been many things to many people.

Bridgeton House was built in 1836 as a private residence. It has served as a general store, bakery (H.L. Yuts), pool hall, real estate office, and apartments.

It was riverside witness to the Flood of 1903, which swept away the wood-covered bridge that connected Upper Black Eddy to Milford, NJ.

The Bridgeton House inn

In 1981, Bea and Charles Briggs purchased the run-down building and spent over a year gutting the building and uncovering old floorboards and vintage fireplaces. They rewired, plumbed, and painted, creating Bucks County’s only riverfront bed & breakfast inn.

Unique Location

Right on banks of the Delaware River the inn is within an easy drive of New York and Philadelphia and offers a very intimate location for private events, corporate retreats and New Hope weddings. Our meeting rooms and dining packages make it a popular alternative to a generic hotel in Bucks County, for many types of events.

We look forward to your visit to Bridgeton House, you will discover Bucks County is a wonderful area for a vacation or weekend getaway. If you need assistance with directions please call, 610-982-5856
