I just got back from a weekend at Porches B&B in New Hope PA John the proprietor has a wonderfully comfortable inviting facility. You are greeted at the door and made to feel at home from the minute you get there. Our room was beautifully decorated, and detail put into evey inch. The Inn is conveniently located right in the...

A wonderfully situated, charming B&B on the towpath in the heart of New Hope. The owner and manager were both very friendly and we felt welcome and well-taken care of. This included the two 15 year old boys we had with us which is worth mentioning because not all B&B's love having kids around. Our room was nicely decorated with...

Visited here with my daughter for a quick trip away from Philly. We stayed in Room 3 (interestingly, mentioned in a review below) - it was a beautiful corner room, less expensive than some of the others and perfect for our purposes. Entry from the lovely upstairs porch as well as the inside. Blue and yellow, cheery and cozy. Yes...

Porches on the Towpath is a perfectly lovely place to stay. The breakfasts were delicious and the owner and his helpers made us feel very welcome. It's in a perfect location for wandering around New Hope and walking the towpaths right out side our door! I would recommend this place to anyone.

We stay in lots of B&Bs, so my comments are tempered by other experiences. The location is great; park your car and walk everywhere from here. It's located a bit off the main street, so you don't hear the constant traffic. We stayed in Room #3, which should be described as "snug" on the website. The bathroom is tiny--so much...

We stayed in room #6 ( lovely room but over the house kitchen) . We really enjoyed our stay! The room was beautiful and very clean. Nice large bathroom with great towels. The room smelled of clean sheets and fresh towels. The room had its own temperature control, which was appreciated since the weather was a little warmer inearly March...

Kill the creepy statues and figurines. We had room number 5 with private access. That was a perk because of the narrow stairways inside. Thebbed was very comfy with a pretty scent. The location was great; walking distance to local shops. Went to newly opened Lola and it was FABULOUS (live music.) Porches served a very nice breakfast of belgian...

My daughter and I just returned from a 2 night stay here in room #9. We really enjoyed our stay! The room was beautifully decorated and very clean.

We stayed here for two nights during a blizzard in February 2013. Very accommodating and warm service by John (owner). Cute town and great place to go if you like shopping for antiques. Low key which is what we like. Highly recommend this B&B.
