My fiance (now husband) & I took a quick little get-away last fall to this picturesque little town along the Delaware River. We wanted a B&B & The Widow MeCrea was a wonderful pick! The house is just outside of the town center (a 5-minute walk) so it was a very nice & quiet area. The house itself if beautiful,... More

My husband and I just got back from a beautiful 2 night/3 day weekend at Widow McCrea's B&B.in the quaint town of Frenchtown, NJ (across the Deleware River from PA). It was easy to get to, and very well kept historic old home. We were on the second floor in the Rittenhouse room. It was large, clean and comfy. The... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice, and are planning to back again in a few weeks time. We love the Widow McCrea. Burt and Lynne are very sweet and welcoming, the home is in wonderful condition, the rooms are comfortable, and their breakfast is absolutely delicious! We recommend it highly!

Rereading the other reviews on this site, I realized the terrific reviews came from those that stayed in the most expensive rooms. My husband and I did not. The Widow McCrea has very pretty curb appeal. Nicely landscaped with beautiful flowers and shrubs. We arrived early for our two night reservation, and were allowed to check in because we were...

The B&B is stunning. The suite was spacious and had a jacuzzi, which was an added bonus. The service was excellent, as was the 3 course, candle-lit breakfast. We would highly recommend Widow McCrea B&B!

My husband and I stayed in the sweet cottage, it was so relaxing, so comfortable--and the back private patio is so beautiful, I could have sat out there all day. The breakfast was so yummy, and so plentiful we could not eat it all. Lynn and Burt made some sort of blueberry bread-pudding/souffle, a muffin each, yogurt, a fresh fruit... More

We went on a Thursday night end of April, 2014, it was a generous gift from my children for my birthday. My husband had a small problem and went to bed early, so I took my Kindle and went downstairs (around 7:30) to introduce myself to Lynn, who did leave key code which was nice. She peeked out the door,... More

when we cancelled our reservation we were told that that in order not to be charged we had to give thirty days notice since we were signed for a special rate that required cash on arrival otherwise a 15 day notice would do. The only problem is WE NEVER KNEW OF THIS SPECIAL DEAL! It is the classic "bait and... More

We chose the Widow McCrea House for a quick getaway for our 36th wedding anniversary. Originally looking for just one night, chatting with innkeeper Lynn on the phone encouraged me to push hubby for two nights, at a discount. She also suggested we consider upgrading from Privacy suite to Cottage, and while we enjoyed the privacy suite, next time we... More

My boyfriend and I decided to take a little getaway on the first nice, spring weekend of the year. We packed our bikes and reserved the Privacy Suite at The Widow McCrea for a Saturday night. The room was quaint and private (as advertised!) and romantic. The owner helped us secure reservations in The Library Room of The Sergeantsville Inn... More
