What a beautiful B & B in the Delaware River area. The room was immaculate and so comfortable with a queen bed and two person jacuzzi. The entire house is decorated with so many interesting things of the Victorian period. Breakfast was incredible with taste treats such as warm honeyed grapefruit and thick french toast with strawberries. The owners are... More

We enjoyed our stay, the inn keepers were very friendly and informative. They recommended places to eat, things to do and they were accommodating with our needs. The 3 course breakfast is delicious. The inn has a quiet, relaxing atmosphere with time period furnishings and we were pleased with our visit. It is also conveniently close to the town I... More

We stayed at Widow McCrea for 2 nights in the Anne-James room and were very pleased. The room was large, comfortable, very clean and nicely appointed with Victorian furniture and decor; also had a TV and plenty of outlets for charging phones, IPads, etc. The bathroom was large and had a great jacuzzi in addition to a shower. Breakfasts were... More

Widow McCrea is an awesome B&B. For starters, Lynn is an incredibly friendly and knowledgable hostess. From the minute you meet her, you will feel relaxed and on vacation. She also happens to be an incredible cook (we are picky foodies from Philadelphia!), treating us to a moist rum raisin bread pudding and baked eggs with fresh herbs. Each morning,... More

I was fortunate enough to stay at the Widow McCrea House for a friends wedding this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our room was beautifully decorated and very clean. Lynn, the proprietress couldn't have been nicer. She was so helpful and gave us recommendations for restaurants and local activities we could participate in as a group. She is... More

On the plus side, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated - and the village of Frenchtown is worth a return trip. However, next time we will stay elsewhere. The hosts were not at home when we arrived even though we got there during the three hour check-in window and were likewise absent and/or detached during our three-day, two night... More

While the room and amenities were about what was expected and adequate the attitude of the hostess left much to be desired. To begin with, three of us were driving over 500 miles to attend a friend's memorial service at the last minute. I booked two rooms on Saturday morning and found out on Sunday that the widow wanted us... More

We stayed at the Widow McCrea last weekend. The house and it's location offer many fun and fabulous things to do. I love cycling, close by is the D & R Canal Towpath Bike Trail which snakes along the Delaware River. Breakfast was incredible, 3 courses-local and organic and delightful!

The Widow McCrea Bed and Breakfast is a beautifully decorated home with gorgeous antiques and in a perfect location for day trips to Grounds for Sculpture and Princeton University.
