“AWESOME ANNIVERSARY WKND !”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

My wife Donna and I celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary Getaway not to far from home. We live in NJ about 1 hour away but had heard fabulous feedback from numerous friends regarding the The Stephan House Inn, New Hope, PA.

Michael was our host and treated us 1st class for our 3 day, 2 night stay, We loved the early January atmosphere (cold weather with the Fire Places glowing and Xmas Decor) and the awesome food served at breakfast. Everything was fresh, healthy, and relaxing.
More importantly, our huge bedroom had a private balcony (yes we were crazy to sip champagne at night outside) overlooking beautiful downtown New Hope with all it's festive lighting.

The location, town atmosphere is right outside your door! The free parking, breakfast, refrigerator w/water, internet, and service was even extra special. In meeting the owner, Celeste (who was radiant and very pleasant each day) I promised her that we would be back big time. More importantly (because of my business background), you can rent out the entire house for a formal family get away, sales meeting, etc..and utilize their roof top or backyard for barbecue's, cocktail parties during warmer times of the year. Guess what.....I plan on surprising my sales staff for our mid year sales meeting later this year.

Thank you for a wonderful time and we look forward to coming back many more times in the future :)

Chuck and Donna

Room Tip: The balcony room we had was outstanding :) Each room had its own unique elegance to meet your need...

my husband and I stayed at the Stephan House last Sunday night. Such a great place. Convinient to shops, restaurants. Clean rooms, welcoming staff, and a special rate Sunday nights in December. So glad we stayed there. We will come back again.

We arrived @ 10:30am and our room was ready for use, which was great and a nice surprise! All of the employees were so helpful and friendly. They allowed us an extra parking pass, early check-in, etc. The common rooms of this Inn were great: clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable, but our room, the top room w/ 2 beds, left a bit to be desired. Pretty rough around the edges and loud too boot. But for a very last minute Saturday night stay, it sufficed just fine. The location of the Inn can't be beat. New Hope's sweet charm lies just outside the door! I would recommend this Inn, just not the top floor room/suite.

Room Tip: don't choose the top floor/suite unless you need 2 beds

We had two rooms at the Stephan House for two nights. It is a great place, very friendly and charming. It even has a fridge with complimentary soft drinks and beer. Common area and rooms are very comfortable and inviting. A few complaints:
1. Bring a light bulb. All of the lights in the guest rooms are minimal watts and almost impossible to read by. If you want more light bring a 100w bulb.
2. If you like quiet, get a room away from the road. Our friends had a room on the street and the noise from the trucks and cars bothered them.
3. They need a shelf in the bathrooms to put your toiletries on. With a pedestal sink there is no room to put your stuff.
Despite these items this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms in the new addition and the original building are equally nice. If noise bothers you get a...

I can't say enough about the Stephen House. We were in town for a wedding and rented the whole house for the weekend. The staff, especially Michael, couldn't been more helpful. The place is beautiful, breakfasts were awesome. Especially the owner, (Celeste's) cinnamon cake. The decor was fantastic and each and every room was beautiful! Having stayed at almost every inn in New Hope none of them come close to the Stephan House. It was a memorable weekend and we can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Every Single room is wonderful. We loved the Stephan with the wonderful balcony and the King with th...

My girlfriend and I spent 4 lovely days at this beautifully decorated B&B. :-)

We felt like we almost had the whole place to ourselves. :-)

All the staff were so friendly and helpful, we were booked into "The Williams" room but changed to the Lambert room because as befits an older style B&B, there wasn't enough storage for us with our bags on our 4 day trip. :-( :-(
It just NEVER occurred to us.

This was bigger and better but unfortunately there was a lot of traffic on Main street while we were there and this did affect our sleep, BUT we got used to it. :-(

The Wi-fi was ok but not 100% reliable while we were there, no doubt it's ok now.

What really came as a surprise for us and it's NO fault of the owners is that we didn't know that in early fall all the restaurants shut early and were almost empty when we went to eat at 8.30/9pm. I assume in Summer & weekends they stay open later.

In one case we rang and booked for 9pm, got there at 8.45 and was told that we were mis-informed as the owner was cleaning up and shutting down. :-(

Luckily we found the 1 remaining restaurant just about to close, thanks Logan Inn.

To end on a good note, we loved the B&B, all the people, New Hope itself and it was great weather for so late in the year, which helped.

We wish to thank Michael, Cathy, Cassie and all the staff for their help. :-)

Room Tip: See above. Storage, location, WiFi etc.

I recently attended a private event at The Stephan House and it couldn't have been done any better! The event was held outside on the garden patio courtyard, the staff was friendly and attentive, the facilities amazingly beautiful down to every detail, the food was outstanding and the event was coordinated perfectly.

We were also able to take a walking tour of the town and enjoy some shopping as well.

We're looking forward to spending a weekend at The Stephan House in the very near future and since one room is more beautiful than the next we will have a hard time picking a room!

I highly recommend The Stephan House.
