New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania- USA

New Hope is a small bustling riverside village, founded by William Penn in 1681, with an international reputation as a thriving antiques and art center as well as the restaurant capitol of bucolic Bucks County.  The early English settlers named Bucks County, known for its meandering country lanes, wooden covered bridges, and native field stone farmhouses, because this area reminded them of their homeland, Buckinghamshire.  An all-American town, the region is still often compared to the  Cottswalds in England.  Indeed New Hope and all of Bucks County offer a serene destination for the sophisticated traveler.  Vista's that attracted the early English settlers and later the "New Hope School" of landscape painters, are as inviting today as they were then.

Located halfway between NYC and Philadelphia this historic hamlet is only 10 miles off I-95 and 25 miles from either Philadelphia International airport or Newark (NJ) International airport.  It is on the bus line from New York City and only 10 miles from the Amtrak train station (Trenton, NJ).

View the Fireworks from the Wedgwood Inn, New Hope, Bucks County, PA

Fireworks over the Delaware River.

There are free Fireworks several times a year on the Delaware River between New Hope and Lambertville.

When making your lodging reservations with us, ask your Innkeeper for the best Outdoor bar / restaurant and/or Boat Ride for viewing the Fireworks over the Delaware River!

View the fireworks from our Inn!  

Aaron Burr House is ideally located steps from the village center and the Delaware River and Canal, and only a block from the Lambertville-New Hope Free Bridge and all that Lambertville has to offer.  In addition, Washington Crossing State Park is only a mile away.  The 7 guest rooms and suites combine the period charm of lofty windows, black walnut floors, brass paddle fans, antique furnishings, original art and hand made quilts with such modern essentials as private bathrooms, air conditioning, color cable TV and WiFi.  Several accommodations also boast fireplaces and oversized beds.  The 19th century house has also been independently rated and approved by Mobil Guide (3 stars) and AAA (3 diamonds) and has been featured in the Bucks County Magazine, The Washington Post and on CNN Travel Show.

There is always something going on in the New Hope, Bucks County area to add enjoyment to your visit. Just ask us about the dates you have in mind. If you are flexible with your calendar, consider planning for some of these upcoming events.  Of course, if you give us enough time, we can almost always arrange for a private, custom-designed tour or event.

"Thanks for arranging our private lantern–led ghost tour of New Hope. Not only is the Inn delightful and the staff warm and welcoming, the history of the house is amazing too. No wonder Aaron Burr fled to New Hope for a week! We'd still 'hand around' too but there seems to be enough ghostly going–ons around here already. Next year we'll stay longer than 3 days though…"

RE: Workshop for Aspiring Innkeepers at Wedgwood's InnSchool:
"Thanks for an informative and thought-provoking two days of your B&B/Inn Seminar for Aspiring Innkeepers. While I haven't yet decided for sure that owning and operating an inn is what I'm cut - out to do, your workshop helped me get a start on a plan for my further research and consideration. In addition to the topic areas you addressed, the visits to other inns and Inn Style Wholesalers and MillBrook Food Distributers were especially enlightening. Thank you very much."
