Named as one of “America’s Favorite Towns” by Travel and Leisure magazine, New Hope Pennsylvania is a beautiful village with a long and storied history. Located just an hour from Philadelphia, 90 minutes to NYC and half an hour from Princeton. New Hope, just across the river from Lambertville NJ, is a wonderful location. The Wedgwood Bed and Breakfast has offered perfection in lodging services since 1982 attracting both business and leisure travelers and gathering accolades and awards such as the “TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and “Inn of the Year” by the popular Lanier International Inn Guidebook.
Between the two buildings and the Carriage House, there are a total of eighteen individual guest rooms and ensuite baths, each with exceptional charm and unique features. Antique appointments, hand painted décor such as stenciling and murals created by local artists, a carefully chosen calm color palette and repurposed vintage lighting fixtures are some of the details that keep guests returning year after year. With loving care the current owners have created and nourished this thriving business and have successfully accomplished the very best of what defines the bed and breakfast experience.
The public areas of the Inn are just as beautiful. From intimate spaces in which to relax, like the sun porch, to the larger rooms such as the recent dining room addition, each has its own distinctive features. The Wedgwood Inn is the primary kitchen with a handsome butler pantry connecting the attractively spacious dining room to the kitchen which is thoughtfully laid out with a huge commercial stove and expansive cabinetry and counterspace. The Umbleby House has its own country kitchen for separate prep or overflow. Stone basements house the multi-appliance laundry area and storage for each building and the Umpleby House has a 550 square foot basement studio caretakers apartment assuring 24 hour attention to the property’s needs.
Just a few steps away is the Carriage House. This popular two story suite features a main floor living area with woodstove and a full bath and a second floor bedroom with large covered porch. An attractive two car detached garage is perfect for the company vehicle as well as storage or a possible workshop.
The meticulously tended grounds provide a wonderful place to relax or a photogenic backdrop for a variety of events. In the age of Instagram you couldn’t find a better place to stage your wedding or best life photos. So many quiet seating spaces, hammocks, gazebos, picturesque walkways and the sweetest to-scale recreation of one of the local covered bridges – the Van Sant covered bridge – houses a place that lovers can leave their “love locks” as they do on the Pont des Arts in Paris.
With its prime location, great ambience, historic significance and successful business history, the Wedgwood Inn and Umpleby House are an unbeatable opportunity for the B&B buyer.
