I found this place by the reviews on trip advisor and it did not disappoint! My mom, sister, grandma and I wanted a little two night girls trip during the week and we couldn't have asked for a better spot. Centrally located in New Hope and a short walk to Lambertville nj, this lovely place offered everything we needed. First... More

My husband and I stopped in New Hope on our way back home. I had made a reservation at Porches based on the TripAdvisor reviews. We were only staying one night so I wanted a place where we could be in the center of town to get the most out of our short stay. Sean welcomed us and let us... More

Nice quaint bed and breakfast. It was a girls weekend and my friend made the reservations. The inn was a little small for me with the full bed but we made it work. The wraparound Porches on each floor were great for late night talks and drinks. The food served each morning was delicious. If you don't want what is... More

Room was beautiful, spacious, cool on a hot day, shower great, bed great. Service was excellent! Breakfast casserole was to die for! Very quiet, even tho you are only150ft from the main street. Great choice, we will be going back soon The owner took great pride in redoing this old home, he really cares Everyone was so nice.

From the moment we were able to check in (early) to the minute we drove off (free parking--hard to come by in New Hope) our stay was excellent. Bob helped us with carrying our luggage to our room on the third floor and was very helpful in showing us around the B & B. The temperature of the room was... More

We've been going to Porches for many years at least twice a year. There are so many things to love about Porches. From the proprietor to his staff, from the ambience to the delicious breakfast, to the location, you couldn't find a better place to stay. We've stayed in nearly every room and have never been disappointed. Did I mention... More

We visited the B & B on our whirlwind tour of the Lehigh Valley Bike Trail. We would have stayed an additional night but for being called away early, unexpectedly. Bob was very welcoming when we arrived ahead of our party, and gave us a tour of the B & B, allowing us to select the perfect room. We picked... More

Understood Porches was a B&B when we booked. But absolutely taken back by the fine breakfasts served with home warmth on the outdoor porches. In fact, all of the service provided at this B&B was welcoming and generous. We stayed in the smallest room of all offered and absolutely loved it. The owner, John, extremely personable and witty has a... More
