“Perfect getaway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stayed in a barn suite #2 for two nights friday thru sunday. The location is perfect close to town, however far enough away were you feel secluded. The owner Terry is just wonderful and definately loves what she does. The property as well as the rooms are well cared for. Room was clean a cozy. We had a small gas fireplace as well as a small refrigerator and microwave. A bottle of wine and two glasses was waiting for us in our room upon check-in. Bed was comfortable however the pillows could have been a little softer. Small patio outside of sliders from the bedroom was also nice. The bathroom was clean and nice, shower was a little small and the pressure could have been better, but nothing to fuss over. Breakfast each morning was fantastic, hot, fresh and fast. We were also given small food to feed the alpaca, which are located onsite. They were friendly and loved the food, except for one which spit at my husband because he wasn't giving it to him fast enough. LOL - Terry the owner is always available to suggest things in town to do and provides a map for you which she circles suggested areas. We will definately be back!

Room Tip: Stayed in a barn suite which I feels gives you the privacy you might look for in a bed and breakfast...

I fell in love with the Chimney Hill Estate Inn. My husband and I spent two nights here for my 40th birthday and got a great groupon deal. The renaissance room was decorated very nicely and everything was clean and neat. We received a big map(with notes!), $50 food voucher for Antons (great food), alpaca feed and a welcome bottle of wine! Terry was the sweetest person and assisted us wherever she could. The livingroom in the main house was warm and cozy and the perfect spot to unwind with our friends! Breakfast was homemade and wonderful! Service was excellent.
It had snowed on the morning that we checked in and the Inn looked like something out of a fairy tale. The alpacas were adorable. Thank goodness there was no spitting!! Ha Ha Ha
The only drawback is the fact that there are no taxis that will cross over from New Hope to lambertville and visa versa. Not sure what spawned that but make sure you have a designated driver if you plan on indulging!
My friends and husband and I are making plans to go back at least once to twice a year! Thanks so much Terry for a memorable weekend!

This was our second time staying at the Chimney Hill Estate and we remembered why we liked it so much the first time and wanted to come back. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and make you feel right at home. Terry and the staff make your stay extremely enjoyable and really try to help you find local places and experiences that you are interested in.

The breakfast is always delicious and not boring. Each morning we were greated with wonderful smells and great food combinations - healthy and delicious!

The Inn also has a working alpaca farm and getting to visit and feed the alpaca's is so much fun, but stay clear of their "sneezing"!

We will definately be back very soon!

Stayed for 2 nights in a barn suite when the temperature outside was in the teens. While driving there I was very concerned that our suite would not have suffient heat during this cold winter nights. Although we had plenty of warm heat, the warm air blew directly at our head and body while laying in bed which made it uncomfortably warm and over heated. We actually had to turn the heat off and sleep with an extra blanket. The barn suite is a nice size but very much outdated with need of a freshing up. The bed linens were rough and towels were small and few. The main house was lovely although I did not see the guest rooms. Lambertville is a very nice town, quaint and charming. The Inn is a short drive into town. One might want to stay at an Inn in town so that no car is needed and restaurants are all in walking distance.

I arrived at The Chimney Hill Estate Inn on New Year’s Day, after a week with my family and friends in nearby Washington Crossing, PA and New Hope, PA. After 10 days with friends and I realized why grown-ups have their own houses. We all love each other but you know the saying about friends and fish.

I needed to stay in the area for a few weeks more for business, so made arrangements with the owners, Terry and Rich to stay in their lovely inn until they got sick of me as well. Thankfully, they were more tolerant than my family and oldest friends. Just Kidding!!! I know the Bucks County and surrounding areas well but did not know much about the Chimney Hill Inn.

The inn is lovely, and Terry and Rich Anderson could not have been more gracious in providing hospitality to a weary traveler. A month away from home is a long time, but I must say, time passes quickly when surrounded by nice staff and beautiful accommodations. The room I called home was approximately 16" X 16"; it was located on a prominent corner of this stately inn on the 2nd floor over of the beamed stone study. My room had 6 windows so it was bright, it had a four poster king bead, with a very substantial and comfortable mattress, cozy bed clothes and comforter. I was in my room a great deal working on my computer, so the high speed internet access was important to me.

I did not have much time to socialize with the alpacas, but I know there were out on the back 40 somewhere. There are lots of things to do in the area, and the Chimney Hill is conveniently on the very edge of it all and a wonderful home base to search for antiques, taste local wines and will never be short of finding a wonderful meal.
Lambertville, NJ sits directly across the river from New Hope, a quaint little town made famous by the artists and actors who lived, worked, and visited for many, many decades. Bucks County, PA and Hunterdon County, NJ were home to many prominent members of the American Revolution. John Hart, signer of The Declaration, Thomas Paine, who's house is but a few miles south of New Hope, and many others. There are many historical sites to take in from Washington Crossing Parks in PA & NJ, the barracks in Trenton and the battlefield in Princeton and on and on…..

I have enjoyed being home for these past few weeks, I currently live near Asheville, NC, but as Dorothy once said... "There is no place like home". She was right and I must thank Terry and Rich for their wonderful hospitality, and I am looking forward to returning for a few weeks in April.

I have only written a few reviews for Trip Advisor, but I hope this information on the Chimney Hill Inn and the historical areas of Hunterdon and Bucks Counties are of interest to other business and social travelers.

I purchased my very first Groupon and was a little nervous to say the least. My whole 20th wedding anniversary weekend hung on this deal! Along came Hurricane Sandy, and the weekend had to be postponed, thanks to help from the innkeeper Terry or weekend was rescheduled and we were on again 3 months later!
The inn is located on a rural country road above the Delaware river, when we arrived on Friday afternoon we were greeted cheerfully by Terry and received all our certificates that were included in our Groupon (dinner @ Anton’s at the Swan & a Winery tour @ Unionville Vineyards). Terry also took the time to provide us with a local map and circled interesting things to do in the area and recommended places to grab a bite to eat.
The next morning was breakfast, and we were not disappointed, Terry was there to great her guests and the staff was very gracious and accommodating. The fresh coffee and Cranbury French toast was delish! The barn suite we were in was very warm and accommodating although a bit outdated, the tour & tasting at Unionville Vineyards was a lot of fun and my husband discovered he likes wine! Dinner at Anton’s was beyond our wildest dreams and probably the best I’ve ever had.
Our whole experience at Chimney Hill was wonderful and a perfect way to spend any weekend, thank you!

Room Tip: Barn suite 1 was very private. We loved the little sitting area outside our bedroom.

I bought a Groupon to go to the B & B. The house is great. The room was ok. The breakfast was average. We had a great time seeing the alpacas. Overall, it was fun. We enjoyed the fireplace in the living room.

We went to new hope for dinner which was great!
