Looking for a Romantic Weekend

Hi everyone. We are looking for a romantic weekend around the New York Area, Pennslavania area. We were thinking of New Hope, PA. We have never been there before. Any suggestions of inns, resorts or things to do would be helpful :)

New Hope is a great place for a romatic weekend. Search on TA for B&Bs in the area, as well as in Lamberville, NJ, just across the river. There are no resorts or major hotels in the immediate area.

Check out "Evermay on the Delaware". It's a little north of New Hope.

I recommend the trip. In fact, a few years ago when NYers were getting weekend homes in the Hamptons, the Berkshires, etc, I got a weekend home in New Hope (a lovely 150+ year old cottage) and would there in under an hour and a half (the worst part was getting thru the tunnel out of NYC).

I hope you are going by car, because the best part is driving the back roads around New Hope. The town itself is cute, but a little over touristed. Yes, you would probably stay in a B&B outside of town but the Logan Inn in New Hope itself is nice too (and apparantly has a ghost!).


Enjoy your trip!

You could also check out Lancaster County. A lot of New Yorkers vacation there. For romantic weekend accommodations, check out www.authenticbandb.com

Enjoy your stay!

We have been going to New Hope for about 8 years now. We have always stayed at the Woolverton Inn located in Stockton NJ just over the bridge from NH. It's a lovely inn and the cottages are very romantic. We decided this year (early Dec,) to try somewhere new, so we're staying at The Mansion Inn located in town. Based on the TA reviews it sounds promising.

Evermay would have been ideal, but it's closed. There are a few other choices. Inn at Phillips Mill is charming. The Frenchtown Inn would be a good choice.
