We just got back from celebrating our 10th anniversary at the Woolverton Inn. I planned the trip last minute as a surprise for my husband. We stayed at the Inn one night after spending the day in Hamilton, NJ at Grounds for sculpture (about 40 min away) and having dinner at Rat's restaurant. The next day we would go to Fonthill and New Hope. All in all the weekend jaunt worked out well. The Inn was built in 1792 and is very peaceful and tranquil, with a gorgeous porch and patio area. We arranged for a late arrival and were emailed instructions on how to check in. The keys and instructions were exactly as stated. We spent some time on the patio at night, drinking champagne. Though the Inn was full, we were the only ones around, it felt like it was our own place! Not sure if everyone else retired to their rooms early or were out, as it was only around 9:00pm. Our room was Stockton's Hideaway, which was a bit smaller then it looked on the website, but its still a decent size. It had a nice window seat overlooking the patio and a gas fireplace (which we didn't use since it was summer) The bathroom was large and had a nice size whirlpool tub which fit two comfortably. It's a great place to relax, read a book, walk around the grounds, feed the sheep, converse with your spouse, etc. The room was a bit pricey, but probably about average for any decent rooms in the New Hope area. I would recommend it for couples that aren't expecting any "planned activities" and want to get away from it all. I was also happy there was no TV. The only turnoff was when we were relaxing on the porch and the owner(?) asked us if we checked out of our room yet (we did). I guess she was concerned because they had someone else coming in, but I think she could have discreetly found out if we checked out first, then if we didn't check out, nicely ask us to. I just thought it was a bit of a turnoff for her to ask. Even so, I would stay here again. I think it would be beautiful to go back in the winter when a big snowfall is predicted and just cuddle near the fireplace.
