My boyfriend Eric and I selected the Wishing Well online out of every B&B in the New Hope area. We had never been there before, and were not sure what to expect...but we read all the reviews and it seemed perfect for us. We were not disappointed. Actually, we never want to stay anywhere else.
From the moment we pulled in the driveway, we were being welcomed by our amazing innkeeper and brought into the warm home. The energy of the house is so incredibly positive, you feel it the moment you walk in. If you love history like we do, you will fall immediately in love with the stone floors, the wide planks, the exposed beams. We stayed in the attic suite on the top floor. It's not the place for you if you are really tall...you might have a few head bumps! But we loved how cozy it felt and how much room there was to spread out! There are books around everywhere to read. There is a super cozy living room to share a drink and a conversation in front of the fireplace. They have a perfect breakfast nook for morning chats. The breakfasts were DELICIOUS and simple. Tasty coffee. Weekends have a happy hour in the early evening at the Wishing Well with wine and snacks where you can chat with your friends and your hosts. It was easily the hardest I laughed in a long time. The folks who run this wonderful place are genuinely kind spirits with humor and wit, and it comes through in everything they do.
As we packed up to leave after our weekend, we were already planning when we could bring a few friends and come back. We will never stay anywhere else as long as The Wishing Well Guesthouse is there to welcome us in!
...if you are seeking Jacuzzi tubs, gazillion thread-count sheets, and pretentious stuffiness, this is not the place for you. If you seek a home away from home, delicious eats, wonderful welcoming energy, giggles in the morning, and an amazing and memorable time with incredible people...both hosts and guests...the Wishing Well is for you! We will see you there!
