48 Hours In Stockton, NJ

Spring is finally here and the daffodils are blooming in Stockton, NJ. There’s lots to do around here once the weather warms up, and we thought we’d share some of our favorite activities to help you plan a  perfect  getaway.

Day 1:

Morning: Arrive early to enjoy as much time here as possible. Call the night before, and if your room is available we’d be happy to offer you an early check in time.

First stop, Ferry Market in New Hope, PA for a quick and delicious lunch – there is something for everyone at this trendy new indoor foodcourt.

After a satisfying meal, visit Bowmans’ Wildflower Preserve and take a stroll through nature’s finest spring offerings. Enjoy this highly acclaimed collection of plants and flowers – you will be impressed. On your way back, stop at O Wow Cow in Lambertville for the best ice cream in town, made with fresh ingredients from our local farmers.

Afternoon: Return to Woolverton Inn for afternoon refreshments on our newly renovated front porch.  Grab a book and find a comfortable place on the patio, lounge in a hammock or unwind under a tree in the Adirondack chairs. Enjoy the pastoral views of our sheep and neighboring farmland – you can’t help but relax.

Evening: In the springtime when the days are longer, you can drive a little further for dinner in Bucks County – The Carversville Inn, Black Bass Hotel, or Golden Pheasant Inn are a few of our favorites. Enjoy the views along the way with some good music on the stereo and catch a gorgeous sunset!

Day 2:

Morning: Wake up at your leisure and start your day with our delicious breakfast, al fresco with the birds singing in the background. Then, choose one of the following adventures, depending on your mood:

  • Take a historic bike tour with Rick James at Encore Rides.
  • Visit the Sculpture Gardens in Hamilton, NJ.
  • Discover the last covered bridge in NJ.
  • Hike in the Sourland Mountains (Hopewell, NJ), or Ralph Stover State Park (Tinicum, PA).
  • Stroll through New Hope, PA or Lambertville, NJ, and browse the many shops and galleries for interesting finds.

Afternoon: Choose from many great restaurants for a late lunch and stop for a drink along the river at The Landing in New Hope, PA. Head back to Woolverton Inn and relax before dinner.

Evening: Take a walk into Stockton and dine at Bistro Rouget or Via Ponte. Stroll across the center bridge and grab an ice cream cone at Dilleys, then walk back up the hill to the Woolverton Inn. Enjoy the rest of the evening by our fire pit – make sure you bring your stargazer, the views of the stars are breathtaking.

Day 3:

Morning: Your last morning, but who’s rushing? Take your time waking up and enjoy a leisurely breakfast – outside if the weather is nice, in our dining room, or delivered to you in bed!

After checking out of your room, feel free to stay and enjoy a second cup of coffee on our property as long as you wish. We’ll be happy to offer you a late check out if possible.
