Porches on the Towpath
A Magical Bed & Breakfast in the heart of New Hope!
Porches on the Towpath is an oasis of tranquility and casual elegance in the heart of New Hope, Pennsylvania. Porches Bed and Breakfast is the ideal spot to experience the warmth and charm of Bucks County lodging.
Porches is tucked away at the end of a quiet lane and fronts the historic Delaware Canal. Walkers and cyclists pass by on the towpath right outside our garden gate, mules clip-clop past pulling barges, and the whistle of the steam train floats across the canal. Yet New Hope's bistros, antique shops and historic sights are only steps away.
Originally built as a granary in the 1830s, Porches Bed and Breakfast has been extensively renovated and carefully preserved. We offer twelve charming and comfortable guest rooms, all with central air and private bathrooms.
A lovely continental breakfast is available. Due to the COVID-19 Public health crises, groups will be accommodated in our dining room, to adhere with social distancing guidelines. Breakfast is delivered straight to your room, if needed, to comply with social distancing guidelines. You can enjoy your coffee while staying on your private wrap-around porch overlooking the canal.
The next time you're in New Hope, stay with us at Porches on the Towpath and enjoy the tranquility and gentility of a bygone world.
Choose from the Main House, The Gatekeeper's Cottage, or The Quarters. Our three distinct buildings have rooms that can combine to accommodate a group or family as well as several more cozy and intimate spaces for you to disconnect and unwind.
