I was housed here for three weeks while holding an internship. From the second I arrived I was greeted and made to feel welcomed and at home. My favorite part about this place is the fact that all of the workers are so friendly and go out of their way to make you feel

Whenever we travel to New Hope, we stay at the Wishing Well. It feels like home to us. In fact, we always choose the Cathedral Room. It's high ceilings and proximity to the breakfast area are both pluses for me. I realize that some, like a past reviewer, might not like this

This was our first time staying at the Wishing Well, 5 of us just spent 2 evenings at the Wishing Well and had a wonderful time. We were surprised that the house was so comfortable and quiet for being one of the original houses in New Hope. We had 3 rooms and all of us felt

My husband and I stayed here for our one big night away without the kids. We were hoping to sleep in and relax. However, we stayed in the "Cathedral" room, which was immediately off the kitchen/eating area, and we were woken at 7:30 by people eating breakfast. I opened the

Response from barbied0ll, Owner at The Wishing Well Guesthouse
Responded Feb. 17, 2014
I am sorry that these guests did not have the kind of room they wished--it's always so sad to me when someone does not feel they were accommodated. At the time they they made the reservation there were room options and they chose the Cathedral Room for it's size--it's the largest room in the house. Since they had a gift certificate from a former guest who recommended the Wishing Well, I would assume that they knew the rooms proximity to the breakfast area. They did not talk about their desire for privacy. I always say, it is BEST to discuss what you are looking for at the time of reservation. Generally people like the Cathedral Room and since I have been in business 13 years, I can attest to it's popularity. But had I known they were looking for something very quiet for their night away, I would have directed them to another room. Even on the Saturday of their stay, I had held a room back and if they had verbalized their discomfort when they got there, I could have moved them to a quieter room upstairs. The innkeeper noted even prior to this review that these guests were extremely verbal about how much they liked the house and atmosphere. Apparently they changed their mind in the morning at breakfast, but that seems like a poor reason to discard what they had previously deemed a beautiful inn. I wish they had spoken up---I would have been more than eager to help them. Instead, Instead, Trip Advisor became their avenue of disclosure. I am hoping that readers of this review will look at the vast majority of excellent reviews we have received and give us a try. If you do and have specific requests, please make them known! At the Wishing Well, accommodating wishes is our specialty!

This review is long overdue. My finance and I stayed here last year. We were greeting by Michael, the innkeeper, he was warm and fuzzy, like a big gay teddy bear. He made us feel welcome and at home. We arrived just in time for happy hour (wine & cheese). We also were

The Cathdral Room
"The Cathedral Room is right next to the dining area"
"ask for a view of the back of the property"
"The 1st floor cathedral room is large and attractive and it has a useful desk alcove (if you wish to use a computer or do work). But, the room is adjacent to the breakfast dining area and you can hear all of the noise (& conversations) of the breakfast guests. Also, the room was cold--there seemed to be no way to control the thermostat in the room & the only heat source seemed to be the radiator in the bathroom. That being said, I loved the room (I just wish it had been a bit warmer)."
"The Blue Room was perfect for two of us for the weekend. Cozy, but not cramped. And come on, the door is a book case. That's super cool."
"Attic room is large and beautiful but lots of stairs. Blue room is smaller but with a big bathroom and equally cozy. The front room is out of the way of other guests."
