Best place to kiss!

Thank you for creating such a peaceful, relaxing and yes, romantic setting. Our accommodations exceeded our expectations. The Sleigh Bedroom, with its rich red mohagany furniture and Oriental carpet and hand-stencilled walls and fluffy pillows and beautiful comforter...i could go on! All you efforts are much appreciated.

Best Romantic inn

I felt like a queen in my King sized bed with fireplace! The porch overlooking the back acres and "Manchester Valley" were a kaleidascope of Fall colors. Now i understand why the wide wood flooring in my room was called "pumpkin-pine". Your helpful staff and warm hospitality, with a delicious 3 course breakfast made our stay here the highlight of our visit up North.

Terrific

We hopped across the Delaware River to Pennsylvania for a Sunday night out-on-the-town, our first since our toddler was born, and stayed overnight in a Jacuzzi Suite at Umpleby House Inn. Perfect! Two miles from our house yet 'far away'. We appreciated the early Breakfast Tray Monday morning: we were back home at 6 am! Thank you for pampering us for 24 hours!

1992-2017: 25 years of your hospitality!

We cant believe this visit marks the 25th year that we have been coming to stay here. It all began with our 10th wedding anniversary vacation in 1992 when we first stayed at Umpleby. We were struck by your warm hospitality and friendly atmoshere. That and your attention to detail and cleanliness, and great breakfasts, have kept us returning these past 25 years!

I love Mr. Black

I am a non-believer. Nonetheless, i want to thank Mr. Black, once the Foreman of the gristmills behind Umpleby House Inn, for finding and returning my lost keys. Or maybe you took them in the first place??? Anyway, i was comforted to know you still roam these hallways and do "locked door" checks on your nightly rounds. I fely very comforfable and safe in your presence. And you cook a great breakfast too!

A Loving Inn

Less than 30 miles north of Philadelphia, we drove to New Hope for a 3 day "stayCation" and found New Hope at Umpleby House Inn. From the loving welcome to the delicious Cookies & Tea served upon our arrival to the lovely breakfast served in the morning, Dinie and her staff have created a loving atmoshphere. So close to Philly, yet light years away.

Summertime in September

We came from Philly to experience Fall in New Hope and got 90 degree weather for 3 days! But it all worked out: we rolled up our long sleeves and kyaked in the Delaware River, picked apples and pumpkins at area farms and took a Murder Mystery dinner ride on the New Hope Steam Train.Thanks to the Umpleby staff for providing excellent concierge services.

Your attention to detail is exceeded only by your warmth and graciousness. Dinie and Carl make a great innkeeper couple! Friendly and knowledgeable, they openly share their love for New Hope and Lambertville. And that's why we stayed an extra night. Plus the food is delectable.

Another lovely visit

We had another lovely visit to your New Hope inn.. We will spread the word back in Westchester the old fashioned way: around the watercooler at work! Umpleby is a very attractive Bucks County manor house and gardens. Delicious breakfast. Genuine hospitality. We certainly enjoyed our 4 day stay with you. Hope to return to New Hope very soon.

New England in New Hope, Penna.

We just loved the East Coast experience at Wedgewood. The green rolling hills and fieldstone fences and farmhouses of Bucks County are so different from Texas. And your Covered Bridges! We appreciated your warm hospitality and expert knowledge of "what to do and what to see".

Splendid.

This is our 4th visit but the first time we stayed here in the Fall. Splendid grounds! Colorful gardens! Beautiful wrought iron furniture all about! We loved our bright first-floor corner room ( new Hip!) with gas fireplace.

loved my private porch!

Yes, we live 2 miles away, but took a staycation while our wood floors were being refinished. And glad we did; we love it here! My spacious 3rd floor room (9) had a King bed and a Franklin Stove fireplace, fridge and microwave. And the porch was the best! Comfortable table and chairs and an umbrella was perfect for early morning coffee and late night sip of brandy. Highly recommend! Fran and Glenn Village 2

Charming Carriage House

Although our 3rd visit here, this was the first time we stayed in the separate Carriage House behind Umpleby. And we loved it! The Great Room was perfect for lounging during the days, and the second floor bedroom with its huge white-wicker-filled covered porch ideal for night moves.

Classic Bucks county inn

We had a marvelous time last week at New Hope's Umpleby House inn. The victorian private porch off our bedroom was the best! We took our morning coffee and late night wine there every day. Nice people. Friendly staff. Very convenient location close to town with its own onsite parking and large property which is part of Wedgwood Inn.

We Loved Historic New Hope, PA

We loved the sense of history, and of place, that New Hope has. Especially the Wedgwood Inn ; colonial - era stone foundation, encampment site for Washington's Continental Army, and more! Carl is an avocational historian and is filled with fun facts and local tales. Both New Hope and its sister city, Lambertville, NJ, are small riverside places filled with small shops, antique stores and art galleries and fine restaurants. a bonus is the exciting nightlife!

6 nights of American hospitality

Thank you for a wonderful welcoming stay. And thank you for supporting the New Hope Film Festival. Maybe we should co-produce a "Greet the Film makers Tea" for next year's Film Festival? I appreciate all the little touches at Umpleby House. And i am grateful for assisting me on my first visit to America. Erika So Africa

And comfortable, clean and casual. I actually look forward to my next visit to Princeton so i can stay here again. The fresh fruit, oh the fruit of-it-all! Chuck

Jessica, Thank you very much for mailing back my charger and cord. I have done extensive travel the last 20 years and this is the first time a hotel / inn called and mailed back a lost item! I'd expect this kind of customer service here: you and your staff provide outstanding service and authentic hospitality at Umpleby House. Donna and i had a wonderful weekend. Continued success.

Lovely town, romantic inn

Thank you for offering such beautiful and romantic accommodations in your historic inn. The orange-yellow pumpkin pine floors are gorgeous! Lots of fluffy pillows, comfortable bedding and floral towels and more. The French Victorian bed ( Queen-size) was magnificent. We shopped and biked all day and had 2 great meals at night at 2 different riverfront restaurants in New Hope; The Landing and Martine's. Bonus: what a night life in New Hope; "Desert City" at the Bucks County Playhouse and Marshall Crenshaw played at Havanna's . All walking distance from the Inn.

From Florida, With Love

We are so happy our New Jersey family recommended that we spend a few days in New Hope, Pennsylvania during our recent visit "up North".And your Umpleby House Inn was the perfect spot to stay and walk into town and Lambertville, NJ too. We loved our porch and its view of "Manchester Valley". Next visit to New York we are going to look for the painting in the American Wing.

WONDERFUL time!

Thank you for another Wonderful time here. We searched though our old pictures and we found several from " back in the day!" There's one of Eddie with his shoulder length hair! We have so many great memories of our stays at the Umpleby House, We included a few pictures of our family. We so appreciate that you and your staff always make time to ensure that our getaways with you are so perfect. Our daughter is 13 years old, and that's how long we.ve been staying here...hhhmmmmm.

Fantastic inn, destination

We had so much fun on our first visit to New Hope & Lambertville. And Umpleby House has a perfect location to walk to everything these twin rivertowns have to offer, plus its got beautiful grounds and free onsite parking! Our second floor room had a porch, and we had morning coffee and late night wine there. The room (#7) itself was bright and airy and had a brass queen bed, fireplace, and a full bathroom. A big breakfast was available every morning next door at its sister property, Wedgwood Inn.
