We celebrated a birthday/anniversary at the Wishing Well and it was unforgettable. It was the weekend of a major snow/ice storm right before the holidays and we were the only guests in the house. The house itself was very quaint and cozy, making us feel right at home. We had a chance to see all the rooms and each has...

I was concerned about the Wishing Well as soon as we drove up. Nothing about the property appeared to be well-maintained. Keeping an open mind, we were shown to our room on the top floor, on the way passing through a dark living room area with scented candles (yuck! ~ certainly not a place I'd spend time with my visiting...

This guest rented three rooms (out of six) for her family and arrived late afternoon on a Saturday of a holiday weekend. Because she secured the bottom half of that three night stay, three of my rooms could not be rented as doubles and ran vacant the night prior to her arrival, already causing loss of revenue.But we "aim to...

I was able to secure the last room for what is a very active Fall season in Bucks County. The room had what I required...a comfortable bed and a hot shower. That heating was too high for my comfort and couldn't really enjoy the cool autumn weather. I would probably stay in a different room if I return. I was...

I needed a last minute room for a Saturday night- fortunately they had a room available. It's very clean and cozy. The breakfast was delicious and the coffee fresh and hot (double bonus). The inn keepers are very nice and willing to help with anything- but not intrusive. Will definitely go back!

We had never been to New Hope before. We found The Wishing Well through a site we had a gift certificate for, and we also wanted to bring our dog. I reached out only a day or two before a summer weekend, and after playing sme phone tag, was able book their dog friendly room, at a reasonable price, use...

I extremely enjoyed this inn! Beautiful landscape and in walking distance to the river, stores, and everything you needed. I stayed here for my twin brothers wedding, which was up the road, and location couldn't have been better. Thank you and I will see you soon!

My wife and I have been going to the Wishing Well for the past 11 years. Every time we have stayed there the experience has been consistently pleasant and warm. The Wishing Well has all of the old world charm you would expect from a 150+ year old farm house and a little more. The owner, Dan, is a wonderful...

Although we were only able to stay one night, we really enjoyed this B&B. The building has lots of character with unique and nicely decorated rooms and common areas. Although close to the main road into town, there was no noise from the cars and the property backs up to a quiet woods, and it is just a short drive...

First, let me say I LOVE B&Bs for their homey-ness and their history. When I heard that a group of conference delegates was taking over The Wishing Well, I did what I needed to do to be included. The location is superb, easy walking distance into town (weather permitting) and super-close to the Raven and the Cub Room. The accommodations...

“The 1st floor cathedral room is large and attractive and it has a useful desk alcove (if you wish to use a computer or do work). But, the room is adjacent to the breakfast dining area and you can hear all of the noise (& conversations) of the breakfast guests. Also, the room was cold--there seemed to be no way to control the thermostat in the room & the only heat source seemed to be the radiator in the bathroom. That being said, I loved the room (I just wish it had been a bit warmer).”
