We just returned from a long weekend stay in New Hope. Porches has a great location, wonderful rooms, beautiful garden and grounds, excellent breakfasts and smiling friendly service. We stayed in Room 11 in the Gatekeeper's house. We will return.

Porches on the Towpath is up Fishers Alley, just off Main St near Bridge St. We were concerned it might be noisy with all the motorcycles, but it was quiet and serene. We were in room 6 - a well appointed charming room - pictures accurately depict it on their website, with our bathroom and toilet areas separate from each...

We stayed at Porches over a weekend for a wedding in the area in May, 2013. We used most of the rooms for others in our family, and the whole experience was wonderful. We kind of overran the place, but Carol and John were welcoming, friendly and very accommodating. The location is excellent, easy walking distance to downtown New Hope....

I searched high and low to find a place that was not packed with Victorian ruffles (gag!) or pretention and we really scored with this place. Perfectly situated close to everything in New Hope, Porches was charming, welcoming and beautiful. We stayed in room #12, an Edwardian suite loaded with cozy yet opulent charm. John (the proprietor) greeted us in...

A wonderfully situated, charming B&B on the towpath in the heart of New Hope. The owner and manager were both very friendly and we felt welcome and well-taken care of. This included the two 15 year old boys we had with us which is worth mentioning because not all B&B's love having kids around. Our room was nicely decorated with...

Visited here with my daughter for a quick trip away from Philly. We stayed in Room 3 (interestingly, mentioned in a review below) - it was a beautiful corner room, less expensive than some of the others and perfect for our purposes. Entry from the lovely upstairs porch as well as the inside. Blue and yellow, cheery and cozy. Yes...

Porches on the Towpath is a perfectly lovely place to stay. The breakfasts were delicious and the owner and his helpers made us feel very welcome. It's in a perfect location for wandering around New Hope and walking the towpaths right out side our door! I would recommend this place to anyone.
