Whenever we travel to New Hope, we stay at the Wishing Well. It feels like home to us. In fact, we always choose the Cathedral Room. It's high ceilings and proximity to the breakfast area are both pluses for me. I realize that some, like a past reviewer, might not like this second feature. I did not find the location... More

This was our first time staying at the Wishing Well, 5 of us just spent 2 evenings at the Wishing Well and had a wonderful time. We were surprised that the house was so comfortable and quiet for being one of the original houses in New Hope. We had 3 rooms and all of us felt that our rooms were... More

My husband and I stayed here for our one big night away without the kids. We were hoping to sleep in and relax. However, we stayed in the "Cathedral" room, which was immediately off the kitchen/eating area, and we were woken at 7:30 by people eating breakfast. I opened the door to go out and get coffee, and everyone in... More

I am sorry that these guests did not have the kind of room they wished--it's always so sad to me when someone does not feel they were accommodated. At the time they they made the reservation there were room options and they chose the Cathedral Room for it's size--it's the largest room in the house. Since they had a gift... More

This review is long overdue. My finance and I stayed here last year. We were greeting by Michael, the innkeeper, he was warm and fuzzy, like a big gay teddy bear. He made us feel welcome and at home. We arrived just in time for happy hour (wine & cheese). We also were introduced to the other guests, who happened... More

We celebrated a birthday/anniversary at the Wishing Well and it was unforgettable. It was the weekend of a major snow/ice storm right before the holidays and we were the only guests in the house. The house itself was very quaint and cozy, making us feel right at home. We had a chance to see all the rooms and each has... More

I was concerned about the Wishing Well as soon as we drove up. Nothing about the property appeared to be well-maintained. Keeping an open mind, we were shown to our room on the top floor, on the way passing through a dark living room area with scented candles (yuck! ~ certainly not a place I'd spend time with my visiting...

This guest rented three rooms (out of six) for her family and arrived late afternoon on a Saturday of a holiday weekend. Because she secured the bottom half of that three night stay, three of my rooms could not be rented as doubles and ran vacant the night prior to her arrival, already causing loss of revenue.But we "aim to...

I was able to secure the last room for what is a very active Fall season in Bucks County. The room had what I required...a comfortable bed and a hot shower. That heating was too high for my comfort and couldn't really enjoy the cool autumn weather. I would probably stay in a different room if I return. I was... More

I needed a last minute room for a Saturday night- fortunately they had a room available. It's very clean and cozy. The breakfast was delicious and the coffee fresh and hot (double bonus). The inn keepers are very nice and willing to help with anything- but not intrusive. Will definitely go back!

We had never been to New Hope before. We found The Wishing Well through a site we had a gift certificate for, and we also wanted to bring our dog.

I extremely enjoyed this inn! Beautiful landscape and in walking distance to the river, stores, and everything you needed. I stayed here for my twin brothers wedding, which was up the road, and location couldn't have been better. Thank you and I will see you soon!
