The hosts are wonderful with an abundance of stories to share. The place is well appointed and comfortable. The pillows in the room were a bit hard for our tastes, but we are very picky, so we'll bring our own next time. It's nice to be in Frenchtown instead of the much busier Lambertville or New Hope. The inn is on the main road and our room was in the front on the 2nd floor (Rittenhouse room) and we noticed the noise, but it was early spring with not much traffic. We used to live next to a train station so the noise did not bother us at all. We enjoyed some of the breakfast offerings, the grilled grapefruit on Sat. morning was a delight as was the poached pear on Sunday. We've stayed at many B&B's in the area and this certainly ranked in our top 5. Go.... enjoy.
