Bed and Breakfast Style

Stay at this authentic 1870 landmark to experience the beauty and history of the area. In addition to the great scenery at your doorstep, all guestrooms have private bath, A/C, tv, wi-fi, and some have a fireplace.

The front porch is a favorite place to watch hummingbirds or view the paddlers on the river. You can also relax at the water's edge, viewing Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct (aka Roebling Bridge), the oldest suspension bridge in the USA. A walk across the bridge is a great introduction to the area’s history--interpretive posters line the path. Chances are good you’ll see a bald eagle or two during your stay, frequently perched in the inn's riverbank tree.

Innkeeper is happy to share expert local knowledge on restaurants, fishing guides, main street towns, local spas, canoe rentals, hiking paths, Bethel Woods or classes at a Buddist Temple.

Continental breakfast is 7-9am, included with 5 guestrooms. Not available with the cottage.
