(Who doesn't love a mid -week getaway?)
Each one of our beautiful rooms has its own distinct decor and personality. We have a room for every mood! There are suites available on the property that are perfect if you are traveling with family or friends.
You are in for a TREAT! Your host, Lisa Pretecrum, is a graduate of the acclaimed Ballymaloe Cookery School in East Cork, Ireland. She works with local farms to bring you the best and freshest ingredients. Her breakfasts are gorgeous, and more importantly, delish!
The Aaron Burr House B&B has a cozy back yard, complete with a fire table and an adorable screen porch. Guests can relax and enjoy a lovely private outdoor space right in the middle of New Hope.
Our area is wonderful for exploring and discovering on your own, but if you would like, we can help to arrange all kinds of adventures. Think winery tours, searching for chanterelles, horseback riding, walking tours of Princeton, NYC, Philly, hikes to waterfalls...the sky is the limit.
As another perk, guests of the B&B have pool privileges a short distance away at a scenic local swim club.
We are all about the history, but don't worry, we will keep you connected.
THINGS TO DO
Food & Drink
The New Hope/Lambertville area is foodie heaven! There are fantastic restaurants to suit every taste. We are also home to wineries, distilleries, and several award-winning breweries. Your host, Lisa, can recommend the perfect place for any occasion.
We are not the "room where it happened," but we are the place to which Aaron Burr fled after his famed duel with Alexander Hamilton. This area is steeped in history - Washington crossed the Delaware here! This town and county are filled with historical sites and gorgeous colonial architecture.
The Great Outdoors
Looking for some nature? We are located along the beautiful Delaware River! You can walk or bike for miles on the Towpath, hike in Washington Crossing State Park, climb Bowman's Tower or go kayaking. There are countless outdoor adventures to explore.
New Hope is a shopper's paradise! Top notch antique shops, boutiques, and galleries abound. We are also just a few miles from the quaint shops of Peddler's Village. There is something for every taste.
Our town is proud of its reputation as an artistic haven. It is filled with galleries, music venues and theaters. We are home to the historic Bucks County Playhouse and minutes away from the famed Michener and Mercer Museums. Go from fancy to funky by just walking down the street.
