We stayed with friends at Pineapple Hill the weekend of the weekend of the 28th. Had not been to New Hope in over 25 years. Scott & Roy made it a special weekend. We learned that they recently purchased the Inn and worked hard to recast the negative image that preceded them. I can confirm that they have succeeded 1000 fold. The place was warm, comfortable, well located…a real family feel. Scott & Roy were the consummate hosts and great cooks (creme brûlée French toast) and provided great local info to visitors. Make sure you check out the Michener Art Museum and the Grounds for Sculpture, all within a short drive away. For eats, definitely check out Cafe Blue Moose in New Hope and the Yardley Inn in Yardley, Pa.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Enjoy the charm of a beautifully restored colonial manor house built in 1790. Set on almost 6 acres, this Bucks County bed-and-breakfast rests between New Hope's center and Washington Crossing Park and also within minutes to Peddlers Village. The History: In the 1700s it was customary to place a pineapple on your front porch as a way of letting friends and neighbors know you were welcoming guests - we hope you'll always feel welcome at Pineapple Hill. The Inn: The eighteen-inch walls and original wide plank pumpkin-pine flooring at Pineapple Hill exemplify a craftsmanship long forgotten. On the grounds, the walls of a stone barn enclose a beautifully hand-tiled pool. throughout the property, are many of the original stone ruins, now enhanced by lovely perennial gardens. The ruins of the original summer kitchen surround an outdoor sitting area. A gourmet breakfast is served daily in our sun filled dining room with fireplace. Your breakfast can also be enjoyed on our outdoor verandah. Each morning a different hot entree is prepared, maybe French Toast, Eggs Benedict, quiche, or another treat, whatever dish the day brings it will be made each morning with fresh local ingredients and served at individual tables.
