I've never written a review before but I have to tell the world how perfect this B&B really is. Worth every penny. The staff came outside just to show us where to park and introduce themselves with a smile. We had a perfect little room with a door to the outside porch which over looked the canal. In the morning...

My wife and I booked here after looking at B&B's in the New Hope and Lambertville NJ area. We decided to stay in PA. The building is nice and has great porches on the first and second floor where you eat breakfast. The weather was cool (in July) when we went so it made breakfast very refreshing. The food was...

My boyfriend and myself are both in our early twenties. We were searching for a great rate in the New Hope/Lambertville area. We saw Porches on the Towpath and decided to give it a try. It was WONDERFUL!!!!! All restaraunts, bars, and shops are just a few steps away. The setting is quiet, serene and almost tropical looking. The owners...

My husband and I have traveled to a lot of b&b. the innkeeper was rated the best! Cared for your needs. Close to everything. Enjoyed breakfast with others . Ask the innkeeper to tell you story about the inn. Grab a bottle of wine n relax on the porches at night. Will return.

The Porches is elegant, relaxing and perfectly located in New Hope, PA. We enjoyed our 2 day stay and wish we had more time to be there. John is the perfect host and treats you like family. His breakfasts are wonderful...and there's always seconds. He spends time chatting and relating stories about the house and other places to visit in...

Porches was wonderful... I recently had the opportunity to share a 2 bedroom suite with my dear friend, Christina Crawford, and we both loved Porches... The breakfast was great each day....

The host was there to greet us even though we arrived after 10 pm. Charming room (3) on the second floor overlooked the canal and towpath. Lovely gardens, birdsong and scrumptious breakfasts. Very quiet at night. Slept so well! Would recommend and plan to come back.

We have walked past Fisher's Alley in the heart of New Hope dozens of times and had no idea this charming B&B was tucked away at the far end! My boyfriend found it listed on the Marsha Brown website and booked it thinking that it was the place a friend had recommended. Turns out it wasn't--but what a happy accident...

We first stayed at Porches 3 years ago for our one year anniversary. This was my first time staying in a B&B, so I did not know what to expect. After meeting the owner, I knew I had nothing to fear. He was very friendly and helpful, and answered any questions we had. He was able to recommend good places...
