I stayed in Porches (room 11) about a week ago. The room was quaint and beautifully decorated. There was a private garden area to enjoy a bottle of wine or some coffee in the morning. The breakfast was top notch gourmet!. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. This location is probably the best in New Hope, as it is... More

I really hate giving this a 2 because the staff was so nice, but I don't want to mislead others and I wish I had known these things before booking. It was fine for the night, but we won't be back. Pros: Close to everything, love the tow path Porches are lovely Breakfast is really good and served hot and... More

In the heart of New Hope, this was the perfect spot to reunite with friends. It is walking distance to everything in New Hope......restaurants, The Playhouse, etc. The rooms are spacious, breakfast served each morning on the porch, in the dining room or in your suite. The owner has a lovely garden, but it would have been nice if the... More

Porches is a wonderful charming bed and breakfast. My husband and I stayed three nights from May 7th to the 10th. Its was our second time in New Hope and first time at Porches and i will never stay anywhere else! The House is 200 years old which held a lot of quirky charm. Rooms are decorated very tastefully. The... More

My boyfriend took me to Porches to spend the night for my birthday. The location is great; most things are within walking distance. We were greeted by Bob; really nice guy. He showed us to our room, helped us with our luggage, and explained everything we would need to know about the B&B. The room was quaint and we had... More

Would recommend Porches to everyone. Stayed in room 7 with the loft area with the day bed. One of the coolest rooms I've stayed in. John was a great host and breakfast hit the spot. Within walking distance of everything that town has to offer. Will be back.

Walking distance to great shops, restaurants, lambertville, great central spot. The staff was so friendly and helpful and sweet. The breakfast was communal and tasty and friendly. I'm a runner and this... More

We were a group of 12 and found porches the perfect place for our recent visit. The porches were just great for spending time together. John and Bob were wonderful hosts. So much to see and do in New Hope and Lambertville. We would return to this lovely B & B again!

My family and I enjoyed a mid-week stay at the Porches. We received warm and friendly customer service, an excellent and different breakfast each morning. We stayed in a split level room and our adult daughter was able to have a private space in the loft area. Decor had a lovely sensibility. Conveniently located - we were able to walk... More
