Among the most charming lodgings is Woolverton Inn, a 1792 stone manor enveloped by 300 acres of rolling hills and grazing sheep. If the terry cloth robe, Egyptian cotton linens, featherbeds and whirlpool tubs don’t provide enough coddling, then feast on the luxury of breakfast in bed (great for those who cringe at the forced camaraderie of B&B meals). Just five minutes from the posh shops of Lambertville and the nouveau-hippie stores in New Hope. ~ Time Out New York
