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

Wonderful bed and breakfast. Beautiful gardens, comfortable porches, private off-street parking and in the heart of New Hope. The rooms are fantastic. The decoration is amazing! Comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely time at this bed and breakfast. Over the years we have visited many other B & Bs and this one has a charm all its own. The rooms are comfortable (we were in room 6 - the only warning for room 6 would be about the water closet, it's small, if you are a bigger person... More

Lovely property tucked away off the main street, but close to all the shops and restaurants. I recently stayed at Porches for my first visit to New Hope. The location is perfect--right on the towpath, so it was great for taking morning strolls along the canal. My husband and I stayed in room 3 which faces the canal. As we... More

You can't ask for a better location than this. You're steps away from the shops and restaurants of Main St. New Hope and the towpath trail is literally in your back yard. But you're on a quiet side "alley" so you don't hear any traffic or street noise. We were there for a long bike ride on the canal towpath... More

After a lot of indecision about where to stay for a romantic weekend, I decided on Porches. Let me tell you, the pictures do NOT do this justice. It is simply gorgeous. We went in late May, and the garden was unbelievable. Eating breakfast on the porch was truly an experience. We stayed in the smallest room (Room 4) but... More

Great location to walk around downtown New Hope and New Jersey. Close to great shopping and eating. Staff was very friendly! Room had a lot of charm and character along with the surrounding gardens which provided a great retreat.
