The Mansion Inn (from $155) on New Hope's Main Street is centrally located for exploring the area's shops, restaurants, and bars. The elaborate Victorian manor house has seven rooms and suites; ask for one with a private porch or fireplace. The dining room’s gourmet fare seafood sausage in a calamari casing or veal Wellington is the county's finest.
Visit with grazing sheep at the Barley Sheaf Farm Estate & Spa (from $275) in Holicong. The 1740s manor house, stone barn, and cottage are furnished with museum-quality antiques, from Art Deco cabinets to Chinese daybeds.
Guests at the intimate Bridgeton House (from $139) in Upper Black Eddy stay in one of twelve faux-painted rooms, some of which face the Delaware River. Stop by in the afternoon for tea and sherry. For privacy, the penthouse occupies almost the entire third floor and the boathouse is a separate cottage.
