You cannot beat the location of Porches on the Towpath. The inn is in the middle of New Hope, but it is set far enough back from the main roads so you cannot hear the bustle of people and cars (you can hear the train in the afternoon, though!). Our room connected to the upstairs porch, and from there you...

I stayed at this B&B while doing some research at the David Library in Washington Crossing. The room was cozy and comfortable. I had a view of the canal from my room and access to the porch and steps down to the Tow Path. I enjoyed walking along the Tow Path, and it was a short walk to numerous restaurants....

I have stayed at Porches many times over many years (more than I would like to admit!) This cozy B&B located in central New Hope has always been a great place of get away stress reliever. All of the rooms are comfortable and quiet. The porches on the main house are great for sitting out and enjoying a cold beer...

Spent an overnight there recently; Sean seemed to be holding down the fort solo-he was very charming and offered up lots of meal suggestions as well as sharing his wonderful pizzelles-yum. New Hope and the inn seem a bit tired; a look with fresh eyes could do both a world of good but it was nice to walk around NH...

Had a wonderful weekend. Rooms are small but you know when you go that it is an old home built in 1812. View was great and food delicious. The best part of all was the hospitality you received. Bob who manages couldn't have been better. He was such a pleasure to all who came. Went out of his way to...

My husband and I celebrated our two-year anniversary in New Hope this week, with a stay at Porches on the Towpath. First of all, dealing with Porches on the phone was a pleasant experience so I knew we'd get great customer service when we stayed there. Sean greeted us when we arrived and showed us around Room 12. We loved...

Had a delightful stay at Porches on the Towpath for a few days for Thanksgiving. First, I would like to say that the entire staff is so warm, friendly and accommodating.

This was an amazing find! John the owner is engaging and helps you to feel like you are staying with family. I won a door prize from Action Wellness (formerly Action Aids) in Philadelphia (where I volunteer) and decided to come and check it out! I have heard about porches numerous times and was very pleased with the location, ambience,...
