I found the Woolverton through a search for Romantic Getaways near Bucks County, PA. Our 3-night stay was a delight in every way. Our hosts, Carolyn & Bob, were gracious and cordial; the breakfasts were truly gourmet and served with style and warmth by darling Lisa, and the house was an architectural masterpiece. We had an-oh-so-pretty suite, Letitia, with a super jacuzzi and steam shower. The site is magical. . . tucked away in the hills with Real Sheep, Even! We felt truly pampered while there and ready to face the world upon leaving. Thank you, thank you!

My wife and I were looking for a quick, last minute weekend getaway and as most of the other B & Bs we looked at were already booked for one or both of the nights we wanted we selected the Woolverton Inn. We were happy we did and we didn't "settle" for less by virtue of our choice. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. The creaky and odd-angled wooden floors just added to the charm of this old (1790s) place and reminded me of the ancient Catskills hotel that my gradparents took me to (and that I loved) when I was kid 50 years ago. A WiFi connection is one of the few acknowledgements of the modern era, but that is part of the reason you come to a place like this - to escape the hurly-burly of your usual day-to-day work routine. It was so relaxing to wake up, have a wonderful breakfast out on the patio and just read the complimentary copy of the New York Times with another cup of coffee. The quiet and beautiful property were such a stress relief. From the Inn, it is just a short drive to Lambertville and New Hope, PA across the Delaware River. Lambertville is like stepping back in time with its rows of Victorian and Federal Period houses. There are plenty of things to do (hiking or biking the canal towpath or back roads, antiquing, wineries, breweries) and wonderful places to eat (we liked The Landing and The Sergentville Inn). If you want to detox from the wild and crazy, this is a wonderful place to do it.

Room Tip: The Primrose Room (where we stayed) is a little odd in that your bathroom is actually across the hal...

Or the fact that this place is an hour from Philadelphia! Spent the most beautiful weekend there this past week...the whole place looks like it belongs in the English countryside. Maybe it was since we had the Garden cottage and the decor screamed english countryside chic! Complete opposite of our usual contemprary taste, but it worked.

So, for an Inn, the room was nice, as usually they are a bit cheesy, even the nicest ones. Please don't expect four seasons slick-ness; it is very homey. What truly puts this at a four star for me:
- Amazing private garden that no other room has...we saw the other suites and they all have either covered porches or the cutest adirondack chairs, but nothing like breakfast and the NY times in your own country garden
- Breakfast- fantastic! We had delivered to the room everyday and it was perfect...
- The grounds: while not immense, perfect to stroll around. A bottle of wine, the Inn's cheese plate on the Inn's main patio, or facing the corn fields near the sheep- out of a magazine. The innkeepers were so nice and the free goodies are delectable
- Activities: no brainer to get the bikes delivered to your room. It is a nominal fee to have them ready for you in the am, and then u just leave them there at the end of day. We are not bikers, but the bike path along the river was easy and very scenic. We biked to the Black bass hotel for lunch, would highly recommend it! We also biked back from the hotel to Lamberstville- about 8 miles or so. There was one rough patch, but overall very pretty.

So all in all, an amazing getaway given the proximity to the city. Back to nature with the option of a two person jacuzzi...perfect!

After several stress-filled months, my husband and I were ready for a weekend get-away. We had been interested in visiting the New Hope/Lambertville area and used Trip Advisor to find a B & B. The reviews for the Woolverton Inn did not steer us wrong. Every part of our stay suited us down to the ground. We stayed in the Hunterdon, one of the cottage suites. Some B & B's use forced perspective in their room photos to give the impression of a larger space. The Hunterdon was as roomy as the photos indicated. The bathroom was fully furnished with a double shower and double whirlpool tub.
And the hospitality! The breakfasts were utterly delicious, with fresh orange juice, perfectly ripe fruit, scrumptious quick breads and entrees that hit the spot. Our hosts were gracious and welcoming, chatty without being pushy or intrusive. We found ourselves needing a small snack one evening, before heading out for dinner. My husband asked for a few crackers, but we were presented with a "mini" sample of their amazing cheeses. We were even more pleasantly surprised to be told the platter of goodies was "on the house"
Are they expensive? Yes, but so are nearly all the quality accommodations in this area. My husband and I chose to use the main part of our vacation budget on the room, while finding lower-budget points of interest and restaurants for the trip (we recommend the Golden Nugget Flea Market, and the Howell Living History farm). My only regret is that hot and steamy weather prevented us from strolling around the grounds of the Inn.
Do yourself a favor, and book a room at this lovely and charming inn.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, choose a cottage suite!

First time in area and wanted all the must see's checked off. This Inn is perfect , you drive down scenic roads and through quaint towns right up thier long driveway and come to see the stately house a beautiful classic barn and expansive grounds . Being a wedding photographer for years I thought this place would be perfect for a venue ! We stayed in the Inn on the top floor and our room looked out to grounds where the black sheep grazed-adorable. The place has old world charm but isnt dusty, if you know what I mean, it has character meaning a bit peeling paint but nothing that isnt expected with an old place but has nice sheets and duvet.We strolled the grounds with coffee cup in hand around the perimeter which they have a little walking path by. You can see the farmland and the sheep with the house in behind. I see they have other newer buildning that I presume are suites that look really nice and again a nice add if your organizing a wedding.Id have the ceremony by the big barn that has a grassy slope overlooking the farmland -just say'n !Loved the breakfast as well great little room and I enjoyed the homemade biscotti when we arrived late .I checked out the other rooms as we went off season and they all were gorgeous .

Room Tip: We faced the front of the mansion with the sheep are kept with the view of the grounds

My wife and I took our short honeymoon here in late June. The Garden Cottage was excellent, private eating area and whirlpool were great, not the mention the outstanding breakfast each morning.

The Inn keepers were very attentive to our needs and gracious to our requests. I got the romantic getaway package in addition, which was a good choice. Thanks again for a memorable weekend.

My husband and I had an exceptional stay at the Woolverton Inn in Stockton, NJ. The setting was idyllic...putting us into an instant state of 'calm.' Bob, one of the two owners of the Inn, greeted us with such kindness. He treated us like family! We made some special requests for the night, and Bob met our requests without batting an eye. He was exceptional! Caroline, the other owner of the Inn, was such a warm and kind woman. The breakfast we ate was scratch made, and absolutely delicious. We stayed in the Garden Cottage, that is ideal for dog owners.The little touches in our room made us smile. There were dog treats, and dog bowls for our little Puggle pup, juices and beverages in the refrigerator for us to enjoy at no extra cost, and Aveda products in the washroom. Our room looked like it came right out of the Country Living Magazine. The decorating was charming! The room was spacious and homey, and our bed was incredibly comfortable. The private patio off of our room, made our cottage seem all the more big, and the 2 person jacuzzi tub and two person shower added a luxury factor. We will be recommending the Woolverton Inn to our family and friends, and we fully intend to return in the near future for a getaway weekend.

Room Tip: The Garden Cottage is ideal for dog owners. It is separate from the main house, so no one is bother...
