My wife and I stayed at Porches for the first time in April and will go back at least once a year. John and his staff treat you like friends you have known for years. We stayed in room 9 which was gorgeous, cozy and very comfortable. Even though the rooms next to us and below us were occupied, our... More

My wife and I spent two nights at the Porches in New Hope to celebrate our 54th wedding anniversary. Everything about our stay was excellent. The breakfasts were tasty and healthful. John made sure that everything we needed was provided. We are planning to return on a future occasion. Dr. and Mrs. Champion (Ben & Sue)

I just wanted to say that I enjoyed my stay at Porches very much. It was clean and neat and in a perfect location as you can walk to many things. I have to admit that the best part of my stay though was the breakfast! John and his staff did a wonderful job! Anyone that is looking for a... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here for a weekend getaway. The location was perfect. Tucked away from the main street yet all dining and shops are within walking distance. We stayed in room #1 which was very nice. The owner John (and his faithful dog Mimi) were above and beyond accomadating. Even offering to cook us breakfast when we... More

Well, I can say plenty. My wife & I stayed in room #10 for one night on a Wednesday. The room is nicely decorated but very small....more like cramped. The mattress was very soft to the point of uncomfortable. The TV had a satellite connection and we had wi-fi using a log-in number provided by the owners. Unfortunately, dust was... More

This was our first time at a B&B so I have no other inns to compare it to. We stayed in room #7 (nautical theme) for a 1-night stay. The room was pretty unique; it is in private quarters off the main house and had 2 floors with plenty of windows. We found ourselves enjoying the coziness of the loft... More

This was one of the best bed and breakfast experiences we have ever had. It is a wonderful unique and distinctive B&B with marvelously and carefully decorated rooms. You will never regret your stay here. The folks are kind and caring and every need was attentively cared for. The Best! Six Stars.

What a great experience! The accommodations, hot breakfast and room 1 exceeded our expectations. What a great place to remove the stress of the city, honeymoon, or enjoy a special occasion. Private entrances and bathrooms were an added surprise. This is small quant compound is one of a kind and has 4 or 5 separate detached cottages from the main... More

We stayed in this unique inn for the first time as a local vacation close to NYC. We spent three days bike riding, walking, and taking in the charm of New Hope & the surrounding area. There could not be a better home base for all of it. Overlooking the towpath, with a manager who simultaneously attends to everything, but... More

Four of us went to watch Washington cross the Delaware successfully on Christmas Day, and wanted to stay in the area. We'd seen Porches in warmer weather and decided to try it out. We had Room 2 in the main house, cozy and beautifully appointed with antiques, etc., and 11, a two-bed room in an adjacent building that was luxurious... More
