Best of Philly

2010 Weekend Hideaway

Inn at Bowmans Hill

There are plenty of B&Bs in Bucks County, but this is the only one that’s earned four AAA diamonds. On the outskirts of New Hope, the inn’s five verdant acres, heated outdoor pool, moonlit deck, attentive staff, and impeccable accommodations (from $295) exceed expectations. Breakfast is courtesy of the hens out back. For dinner and drinks, pay a visit to the iconic Boathouse Bar and Hamilton’s Grill Room (8 Coryell Street, Lambertville, 609-397-4343). But also be sure not to miss new Middle Eastern gem Marhaba, which is BYO (77 South Union Street, Lambertville, 609-397-7777).
