“Awesome mini vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

My husband and I have been married for 18 years and have traveled a lot. I can honestly say this place is awesome!!! The staff is extremely friendly, the place is clean and they have a chef that makes breakfast. I was a little hesitant when we first drove up (I have never been to a B&B)
but the outcome was far greater than I expected. I can't wait to come back in the summer!

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experiences. We are so glad you enjoyed your mini vacation. We are different than a B&B in that we are more like a small hotel with awesome staff!
The Summer is a great time to visit- the dock is a great place to relax, swim or to enjoy our special Dock Picnic Basket, set up by our staff & prepared by our chefs- the ultimate in Romance! We look forward to welcoming you back!

We are return guests and had a fantastic weekend, yet again! We were greeted by bubbly Claire and it started our weekend off perfectly. We upgraded to the Penthouse and quickly discovered it was the most perfect setting for our getaway weekend and it was exactly what we needed. The "Welcome Back" gift, fireplace, Sherry bar, balcony with 2 sitting areas, heated towel rack and magnificent view were just some of the many items that made the stay amazing. Did I mention the turn down service and truffles?!?!?!? Waking up to a pink/purple sky bouncing off of the Delaware and the smell of bacon cooking started the mornings off right. During our two day stay we enjoyed a fresh asparagus, chedder and caramelized onion omelet, a sausage, roasted tomato and Italian cheese omelet, apple stuffed french toast with a raspberry sauce, baked pears in a light cream, fresh fruit parfaits and homemade fruit breads. A-MAZ-ING! We will definitely be returning and might have to turn our annual getaway into a bi-annual getaway at the Bridgeton House! A+++++++

Thank you for your review! We love it when returning guests take the time to write about a visit.

We agree the Penthouse is a wonderful spot to have a getaway & it sounds like you really enjoyed this ultimate room! Morning skies in this room are really stunning & the deck is really fabulous, especially in the Summer, star gazing is amazing.

Thank you for your kind comments about our staff & I will be sure to pass them along.

Looking forward to your Bi-Annual getaway :)

Best Wishes,

As the Bridgeton House celebrates its 30 years of "innmanship", we, too, celebrate the many special times we've enjoyed there these past years. Instead of hustle-bustle and crowds of shops and people, a sense of quiet timelessness and peace prevails. The slow movement of the river in sunshine, mist, rain,or snow soothes our souls. Artistically unique, cosy bedrooms, delicious breakfasts (in or out of bed) with afternoon tea and pre-dinner sherry, and, most important, wonderfully caring innkeepers have kept us returning like pigeons, homing in on our home away from home each year. All the fruits of the little towns on each side of the Delaware await a leisurely exploration, for none is far away. The Bridgeton House is indeed an invitation to a perfect visit.

Room Tip: Riverside rooms provide the best view of the Delaware River.

Thank you for your review of your most recent visit! We are happy that you continue to return home to your nest!

The River is indeed a most captivating spot & has been our inspiration for over 30 years! We still find it hard to believe that tranquility like this can exist only 1 hour out of Philly or NYC. So glad you enjoyed visiting the River towns & our inn.

We look forward to welcoming you back, again!

We stayed for only one night. The room we wanted was booked, and so we reserved in another room, but Claire the innkeeper upgraded us to the adjacent room which was a little more spacious upon our arrival. A very comfortable, cozy space and a funky artistic atmosphere overall with a great view overlooking a calm, tranquil Delaware River landscape. Claire was a wonderful innkeeper and made us feel very comfortable as soon as we arrived, with the room upgrade, then starting a fire in the backyard fire pit for us to view and enjoy from our room.

We were celebrating our 10yr anniversary and away from our 3yo for an overnight for the first time.Breakfast was lovely, too. We would return.

Oh, do we remember those days of leaving a toddler at home for a quick getaway! So glad that we could be the location for your precious time together. Clair is a wonderful innkeeper & an upgrade to a larger room is a gesture we love to offer when we can, thank you for mentioning it.

Our Winter fire pit is a big hit with our guests (staff too) as this location allows it to be seen from the rooms (We have even had proposals by it!), drawing you outside to the River's edge.

We are happy you would return & look forward to welcoming you again

Thank you for taking the time to write & Happy Anniversary!

I made the reservations late for the New Year's Weekend - and booked the Penthouse (one of the two rooms left) and was not disappointed. From the time we checked in with Claire our resident Innkeeper we felt welcome and pampered. The rooms (we saw a few on the way up to the Penthouse) were all gorgeous and beautifully appointed - the Riverfront rooms with enclosed porches or balconies.. and fluffy comforters and each one unique.

The penthouse was spectacular - 900 square feet - large King size bed that was heaven to sleep in and the River spread out in a bank of french doors and windows.. spectacular views.. even in the winter the snow made it more beautiful.. the town across the winter sparkled at night and it was truly like being in a movie. We had leather lounge chairs, flat screen TV a large marble bathroom with shower and soaking tub, heated towel rack.. and a never ending supply of towels when we needed them. Turn down service at night with truffles and a nice note and because it was Jim's birthday - a little present waiting on our bed upon arrival!

The view of the Delaware and the Milltown Bridge - was spectacular - anytime you can wake up and see the water and a scenic bridge - you know you are in for a restful vacation! We had a fireplace, bar (with Sherry and chips) and a dressing room in our very large (900 sq feet) penthouse. The sundeck stretched out over the entire front of the building - and if we were there in summer - we would have had breakfast and lunch out there every day!

At night the Innkeepers lit a bonfire in on the terraced decks below - and the Inn was decorated for Christmas.. it was spectacular.

Justin (our other resident Innkeeper with staff) served us an amazing breakfast three days in a row.. chef's specials - pumpkin or chocolate chip waffles, eggs anystyle, fruit and yogurt cups and homemade fruit breads.

If you want a restful, cozy getaway this winter - or to celebrate Spring, Summer or Fall.. this is the place for you!

Room Tip: The Penthouse or the Boat House next door are the most luxurious accomodations.. but any room with a...

I will keep it short. Our room #7 was located in the front of the building. Upon arrival we noticed it was quite a bit of noise from passing cars, trucks, motorcycles. Spoke with the manager and asked if it gets quieter at night. She said it usually does and advised running the fan on the window AC unit to block the noise. I will tell you that there wass till a great deal of traffic all evening. We were woken up by motocycles, screeching tires, blowing horns, and trucks even with the fan running. We were exhausted the next day. Breakfast was not impressive, and the grounds were not impressive. Finally, our bathroom needed a good cleaning with some bleach. The caulk around the base of the shower stall and the area outside of the shower was covered with mildew. Caulk was no longer white, it was black inside and out. Sink and toilet were not very clean and the room was dusty. I was very disappointed and I feal all of my points are valid and the cleanliness should be addressed in some manner.

My husband and I celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary at the Inn. We experienced the Private Dining Special as well as the Gift of Love package. I can not rave enough about the experience. For our special occassion we stayed in the Boat House and the view and lodging were spectacular. We felt like we alone were experiencing the Inn. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. The employees made us feel at home and could not do enough to make our stay more wonderful. I recommend this Inn highly and we will be returning in the future.

Room Tip: Special Occassion choose the Boat House, it is more private.
