Fab 2-day visit in dead of winter, but warm and toasty inside. Try room 11 with 2 cozy queen beds, great shower and no stairs! We're booking for spring to use private outside courtyard with fountain. Great gardens and location on the towpath in New Hope. John, our host, is the designer in residence with his sidekick Mimi the Jack... More

Fourth time is the charm at Porches on the Towpath. This quaint little B&B never disappoints. The inn is spotless and tastefully decorated with antiques. The rooms are comfortable, unique and charming. The breakfast is always a treat and my wife's gluten free diet is never a problem. The guests are extremely friendly and make you feel right at home.... More

Such a sweet magical place! Our room was just beautiful! My husband and I stayed at Porches a day after Christmas, it was the best decision ever! John the proprietor served the most mouth watering breakfast. We sat and talked with him that morning and the night before he gave us the best idea on how to see all the... More

One of the few b & b's in New Hope that have a ground level room that works for a handicapped person. Room 11 is well appointed, huge bathroom with walk in shower and plenty of room for a walker. The inn is beautiful and withing walking distance of everything New Hope has to offer. Staff is more than helpful.... More

I was with a friend of mine, riding from Bethlehem to NY on the D&L. We started very late the first day so we got to new hope and had to stop for the night. We picked this B&B because it was right on the trail. WOW! What a fortunate choice. The room was like getting back in time in... More

We kept hearing about New Hope and what a cool place to visit. We searched for mid week lodging and decided on Porches based on reviews. The town itself and neighboring Lambertville offer a lot of shopping and dining opportunities plus there are some significant historical sites nearby. Our experience with Porches was first class. Bob the innkeeper was accommodating... More

Porches is a fabulous B &B located in the heart of New Hope. Our room was terrific - filled with beautiful antiques. The hosts could not be more gracious - so accommodating. We will definitely be back!

First time to New Hope. This is a quaint B&B. Very good location near center of town. Breakfast was very good. Room was average as B&B's go we've stayed at in different cities. The innkeeper (John) was very friendly and helpful with advice. Bring shampoo and a hairdryer with you. They are not provided in the rooms.

My husband and I stayed in room 7 which is light filled and cozy. The artistic placement of every piece of furniture and artwork and all make the rooms so soothing and inviting. From Porches - New Hope - is a footstep away - from the canal path, wonderful bookshop, shops and restaurants. John, the innkeeper, has always given fabulous... More
