John and Bob were wonderful hosts at this charming B&B. They gave the best dining suggestions The place itself was clean and interesting, with a slightly over run garden situation. You couldn't beat the location, you could walk everywhere! The rooms were interesting, however, if you are tall or overweight don't book room #6 because the actual toilet was in... More

There is a reason for Porches' long-term success. John and his crew do it right. Gracious and knowledgable hospitality, delightful breakfasts, wonderful bedrooms and decor create a comfortable setting located right off New Hope's main drag. Parking is so convenient; one never has to use their car. The porches themselves are unique and add special spaces for eating, reading, and... More

Porches was a refreshing getaway place with a warm and friendly staff. Modestly appointed but very well kept older rooms with an exciting and authentic grasp of days past, just like New Hope. Breakfast was well done on a choice of upper or lower porches and the staff was very welcoming. Walk to everything and off the Main Street which... More

Tucked away in the center of New Hope surrounded by lush vegitation. My wife and I loved every minute of our stay. Breakfasts on the porch, friendly helpful people, and wonderful peaceful moments with my wife. A short walk to the Bucks County Play House with top notch shows. We plan on being back again and again

This place has the friendliest management you'll find anyway. This was our second visit. The last time we stayed it was in early April. This time (June 2014) the gardens were in full bloom, and it was even nicer. We spent three days there, and we could walk to everything -- including a show at the Bucks County Playhouse, which...

My husband and I stayed here after our wedding reception. It was just lovely and the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. The breakfast in the morning was exceptional as well. We will definitely be back and highly recommend to anyone looking for a quaint place to stay in the middle of New Hope.

Porches has a great location, just a little hard to find without GPS. We found having a deck outside of every room really special. Also breakfast served on the porch was a nice treat. The small garden is beautiful and lovingly kept. I enjoyed exploring it in the evening and was excited to see my first Firefly there. I will... More

Lovely bed and breakfast with all of the comforts, very hospitable staff, and convenient location. My two friends and I booked rooms 11 and 12 which had a connecting door. (King in room 12 and two queens in room 11). Appreciated the double sink in the room 11 bathroom so we wouldn't have to share. (Those little things make a... More

I stayed at Porches on the Towpath on June 23rd and it was a magical experience. The ambiance of the house was like being in Savannah or Charleston with the wrap-around porches on two levels and the cozy, eclectic garden. My room on the second floor was lovely and comfortable. Looking out from the top floor porch across the canal,... More
