When you stay at Bridgeton House, you are not staying at an ordinary Pennsylvania bed and breakfast or New Hope inn.
When you step into our Delaware River inn, 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 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.
