Upon arriving I thought the place was charming. Our room was also very appealing upon arrival - but quickly lost points due to the fact it was just too dark and dusty. Needed some upgrades for sure. The bathroom was gorgeous though! Excellent breakfasts.

We stayed at Porches for one night for our 40th aniversary. Property is located at the end on an alley one block from the main drag. We always like a property when you arrive and park your car, you do not need it again until you leave. Everything is in walking distance, restaurants, shops, the tourist train, the towpath, even...

Great central location in New Hope with quick access to the bridge to Lambertville. Really friendly owners who are eager to make sure your stay is comfortable. Well appointed and comfortable rooms. Great breakfast and a even a willingness to go off the set menu for us. We had a great stay and will definitely be repeat visitors.

My wife and I just returned from a two night stay. We had never been to New Hope or Lambertville although we live only 45 minutes away. We stayed in room 2 which was small but wonderfully appointed and exactly what I would expect from a B&B with such a wonderful reputation. Very comfortable bed, amazingly decorated, and charm for...

Our first rime in New Hope, we spent a few days at Porches during the film festival. Perfectly located right next to the canal and just a few steps to the centre of New Hope and the bridge across the Delaware to Lambertville, it is nevertheless an oasis of tranquility, full of charm and a warmth that made it feel...

I got the last available room on a busy summer weekend, so I wasn't sure what to expect. My husband and I arrived late and exhausted but John, the charming innkeeper, was there to greet us and show us to our top floor room in the large main house. It was wonderful! A huge, perfect bed, modern (and highly effective)... More

Located next to a canal in New Hope, PA and a 1 minute walk to the main road in downtown New Hope, this bed and breakfast was all we could hope it to be. First of all, the place is BEAUTIFUL with lush foliage around individual little rooms. Our room had a little patio area and a wooden lion (very... More

Stopped here after a week of staying at nondescript chain hotels. Relief was immediate upon entering our room, which was beautifully furnished with handsome antiques. Sparklingly clean. Bed incredibly comfortable. Best of all was breakfast (superb!) on the veranda outside our room overlooking a picturesque canal, towpath and the Porches' gardens. Located down a quiet country lane, but within steps... More

Just spent a long weekend at Porches. Everyone at the bed and breakfast was friendly and very helpful . The location is perfect since it is right in town, but nestled down a private side street with private parking. So it was nice and quiet at night. We were able to walk everywhere in town and over the bridge to... More
