Forgive the lengthy review, but we wanted to capture the true essence of our experience, and that will take many words! The Inn represented all of our wishes for an intimate elopement in spectacular, elegant, yet comfortable surroundings, complete with unsurpassed service that is often absent at even the most renowned hotels and resorts. Nestled among the breathtaking estates of New Hope, PA, once the gates to the Inn opened, we knew we had the perfect place for our unique elopement. We had planned a conventional wedding in NJ, until a family member became ill, and the celebration was placed on hold. Once we were ready to plan, we were no longer seeking a conventional wedding, but rather the perfect elopement. We considered traveling and even visited another B & B in PA; however, that experience was a tremendous letdown, as the place didn't resemble the pictures at all. At that point, we realized we didn't want to plan anything sight unseen. It was at that point that I recalled reading about the Inn, as well as the New Hope area in general, a couple of years ago. We had plans to visit, but had never made the trip from NJ (which, as it turned out, is barely more than an hour!) We also didn't want to be dwarfed by surroundings that typically cater to larger parties, as it would likely be just the two of us. It was important that we could have our special day, complete with dress, make-up, photography, etc, but in the most intimate way. When we called the Inn and explained what we had in mind, immediately it seemed like the perfect option, and we were invited to explore the estate. As I stated above, once the gates opened, we knew it was our place. Contrary to the other B & B, the pictures didn't do it justice. The grounds are spectacular and so well maintained that the pride of ownership is evident. It was the perfect backdrop for everything we had in mind-an elegant estate with the perfect backdrop to exchange vows. With 6 rooms in total, even with other guests, it still felt like a private retreat. The weekends book quickly, so we opted to use the midweek, so that we could plan it sooner. We chose the Regal Tower Suite, which has a private entrance and is its own apartment, complete with a living room area, bedroom and elegant bathroom, where no detail was forgotten (heated floors, whirlpool tub, steam shower for two, heat lamps). Each room, including the bathroom, had a television, although the place itself induces such a sense of peace and relaxation, the television seemed almost an intrusion. The entire estate, especially our suite, was immaculate. Breakfast was delicious, and the Inn provides a fridge, water, cheeses & other snacks to guests, as well as coffee throughout the day. Tim, the innkeeper, represented professionalism mixed with approachability and seemed to anticipate wishes before they could even be expressed. Understanding that we were unfamiliar with the area, we were linked to florists, hair stylists, and most importantly the most amazing photographer I have ever seen! The Inn was more than willing to allow us to create the most special day for ourselves, and our stay and elopement exceeded expectations on every level. In a word, it was perfect.
