A quick guide to assist you in planning your stay:
How far are you from New Hope, PA?
It is a lovely and very scenic 18 mile drive from the heart of touristy Main Street New Hope to our doorstep. Please allow 20-30 minutes driving time. We recommend the loop: Take Route 32 South (River Road, the scenic route) from our parking lot into the heart of New Hope. Enjoy an afternoon/evening before crossing the bridge into Lambertville, NJ to take Route 29 North (the faster route) for your return trip.
Will I need a car?
While there are many restaurants and activities within walking distance, most guests find that it is easier to enjoy the area with a car.
Do you offer complimentary parking?
We have 1 complimentary parking space per room rented. Trucks and oversized vehicles are restricted and may be asked to park in certain spaces or off-site.
Do you have an elevator?
We do not have an elevator. We do offer 3 first floor lodging rooms for guests who prefer no stairs.
Can I bring my pet?
We welcome small dogs (25 lbs. or less) in our Boat House accommodation only.
Do you welcome children?
Bridgeton House is most suitable for guests 18 and over.
How large is your property?
We are located on over a 1/2 acre – comfortably perched on the banks of the beautiful Delaware River. We offer riverside terraces, a riverside tea house, seating areas with fountains, a riverside cafe area, beautiful gardens, private riverside porches and our swim dock- you are sure to find a comfortable spot to relax and enjoy the view. We are the only riverfront hotel with direct river access in Bucks County.
What is included in your room rate?
You will find there is a lot of value in our room rates. Our rates include a multi-course, made to order breakfast menu, prepared by one of our professional chef’s and served by professional servers, our wonderfully restorative afternoon tea featuring homemade sweets and savories, imported teas, a glass of evening sherry, 24 hour access to our stocked butler’s pantry, concierge service, complimentary parking, wi-fi . We are foodies & our breakfast is so much more than fruit salad, a muffin & a cup of coffee. Our afternoon tea, hits it out of the park & again it’s not a cookie & a glass of ice tea- it is an event!
Do you rent bikes?
We do not rent bikes; however, you will find bike rentals in nearby Frenchtown, NJ, or if you prefer you can bring your own. This part of Bucks County is a haven for bike enthusiasts.
When is the dock in the River?
We try to have our dock in the river & accessible for guests Memorial Day through early Fall. The Delaware River is one of the last free flowing rivers in the country. It will rise & fall with rain fall. There are times when swift currents & high water require us to put our dock in flood position, restricting access. Guest & staff safety are always our priority.
Can I swim in the river?
Absolutely. You will find the stairs to our dock with swim ladder just steps from our back door – we even supply the beach towels.
Can I bring my kayak?
Yes you can and we highly recommend it in warmer months. You can launch at the boat ramp right next to the inn. If you don’t have your own, you can rent kayaks, canoes, rafts and tubes nearby.
How far are you from the Canal Tow Path?
This wonderful State Park is located just steps from our front door. With 60 miles of path to explore, It is the perfect place for a casual stroll, bird and wildlife watching, a morning run or an afternoon bike ride.
