We stayed four nights in the Kase Cottage. It was a comfortable, clean, pleasant home base for traveling around in an area with lots to do. We especially enjoyed the outside private patio with its old carved door display, the gas fireplace with couch and comfy chair seating, and having a small refrigerator, microwave and table. The stained glass window...

We stayed for two nights in a cottage which was a magical time for both of us. Set off slightly from the main house it had it's own private garden, which made us feel like we had been transported to a villa in Italy. Beautiful decorations and antiques are everywhere you look. Tastefully decorated with numerous antiques this Victorian style...

We stayed in the cottage. Went way beyond our expectations. Very relaxing and beautifully decorated. Loved having a fireplace too. Close to downtown. They recommended things for us to do in the area which was great.

What a beautiful B & B in the Delaware River area. The room was immaculate and so comfortable with a queen bed and two person jacuzzi. The entire house is decorated with so many interesting things of the Victorian period. Breakfast was incredible with taste treats such as warm honeyed grapefruit and thick french toast with strawberries. The owners are...

We enjoyed our stay, the inn keepers were very friendly and informative. They recommended places to eat, things to do and they were accommodating with our needs. The 3 course breakfast is delicious. The inn has a quiet, relaxing atmosphere with time period furnishings and we were pleased with our visit. It is also conveniently close to the town I...

We stayed at Widow McCrea for 2 nights in the Anne-James room and were very pleased. The room was large, comfortable, very clean and nicely appointed with Victorian furniture and decor; also had a TV and plenty of outlets for charging phones, IPads, etc. The bathroom was large and had a great jacuzzi in addition to a shower.

Widow McCrea is an awesome B&B. For starters, Lynn is an incredibly friendly and knowledgable hostess. From the minute you meet her, you will feel relaxed and on vacation. She also happens to be an incredible cook (we are picky foodies from Philadelphia!), treating us to a moist rum raisin bread pudding and baked eggs with fresh herbs. Each morning,...

On the plus side, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated - and the village of Frenchtown is worth a return trip. However, next time we will stay elsewhere. The hosts were not at home when we arrived even though we got there during the three hour check-in window and were likewise absent and/or detached during our three-day, two night...

While the room and amenities were about what was expected and adequate the attitude of the hostess left much to be desired. To begin with, three of us were driving over 500 miles to attend a friend's memorial service at the last minute.
