"We're out of here - an escape to the country, New Hope, Pennsylvania

Some places seem to draw you over and over again.  One such place is New Hope, Pennsylvania. New Hope is a small, historic riverside village with a big name in the arts, theatre, antiques and live entertainment and fine dining. Indeed it can get crowded, and parking is at a premium, if at all, but we have a better idea for you.

It's called the 1870 Wedgwood Collection of Inns, owned and operated by Nadine and Carl Glassman and their wonderfully attentive staff.... Wedgwood House is a stately blue and white manse set on lovely and lush grounds yet just steps to the heart of town, and it offers free on-site parking for houseguests!

All in all the Wedgwood House is a superb get away and, adding the neat towns of New Hope and Lambertville into the mix, will make for a great escape. If you visit as part of a group they have two other properties right next door - the Umpleby House and the Aaron Burr, which are all just as wonderfully accompanied with the personal touches the Glassman's have done to the Wedgwood.

Make some time, book any room - or suite in any House. All are more than reasonably priced for the value received. Stay another day; sleep over and enjoy New Hope in a whole different light!"

From Cottage Living Magazine, November 2007

Byways; Roads Less Traveled: I've escaped into falling leaves and rooted history,  by David Hanson

"Bucks County, Pennsylvania, roads may wander, but they all lead back to cottages in the woods, charming riverside villages and scenic gems....the Delaware River, like the towns and fieldstone homes along its shores, remains natural and authentic."

Wedgwood Inn - Celebrating 25 years of Innkeeping

In April 2007, Dinie and Carl Glassman celebrated 25 years of innkeeping at their 1870 Wedgwood Inn. Dinie and Carl have led the Wedgwood Inn from humble beginnings into a fixture in the local innkeeping community. Dinie has guided the inn full time since its inception and has often been recognized for her role in hospitality and service in the travel and tourism industry.

As a thank you to the loyal houseguests who have made their B&B inn such a success, Carl and Dinie are giving away a complimentary "Mid-Week Escape Lodging Package" each month of their anniversary year.

The names will be drawn at random from their extensive database of houseguest names (from their Wedgwood Collection of Historic Inns: Wedgwood, Umpleby and the Aaron Burr House.) If you have not been a registered guest but would like to enter, go to the website to register - www.WedgwoodInn.com. Each month the winner will be chosen and notified via email.

The 1870 Wedgwood Bed & Breakfast Inn at 111 W. Bridge Street in lovely New Hope, PA, is a nationally acclaimed bed and breakfast inn. It is a Wedgwood-blue colored Victorian "Painted Lady" listed on Bucks County Registry of Historic Places. Wedgwood Inn is spelled Wedgwood, not 'Wedgewood' because Wedgwood Inn is named after the Englishman Josiah Wedgwood who invented the famous Wedgwood blue bone china. The Wedgwood family name does not have a second "e" in its spelling.

Set on 2 private acres of a park-like setting with flower-lined brick walkways leading to two gazebos and a hammock, yet just steps from New Hope's historic and vibrant village and the walking bridge to Lambertville and nearby Princeton, New Jersey.

Time for New Hope, by James McCommons

"Getting out in the country and visiting small towns is a great way to get away from it all.  New Hope, Pennsylvania, is one of our favorite escapes."

From the August 2007 Issue of Nouveau Magazine

The 1870 Wedgwood Inn of New Hope

“April 30th marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the day Dinie Silnutzer and Carl Glassman (pictured) opened the Wedgwood Inn, their bed-and-breakfast in New Hope, PA. At the time, they were newlyweds seeking a lifestyle change. Now, after adding to their domain the Umpleby House and the Aaron Burr House, their dreams have been realized. “Innkeeping is as good as we thought it would be, and more.” Dinie says. Carl notes that overnight guests have come from thirty-five countries and all fifty states, and now many of them are the offspring of early clientele, arriving with their own children. Carl and Dinie are celebrating their first quarter century by selecting one lucky couple each month to receive a two-night gift certificate and by renovating the Victorian gazebo that graces the two-acre property, which is just a stroll away from downtown. Having already added Wi-fi and several double Jacuzzis to the charm of antiques, fresh flowers, oriental rugs, local art, and breakfast on the dining porch, alfresco or in bed, Carl and Dinie will surely continue to delight their guests for another quarter century."

New Hope - Where the Stars Still Sparkle
by  Gerald Bartell

"...New Hope lodgings have pedigree.  The Wedgwood Inn built in 1870, celebrates Victoriana with a collection of wedgwood pieces, owner Carl and Nadine Glassman gathered in 25 years as innkeepers.  Next door, jacuzzi suites at the Umpleby House tempt visitors to spend a night under the eaves with a good book.  And, across the street, their Aaron Burr B&B once served as a resting place for the Vice President as he fled New York after his infamous duel with Alexander Hamilton.  The Inns serve tasty breakfasts including fresh fruit, homemade breads and a hot entree.  The hearty food speeds visitors on their way as they gather collectibles, paintings, penny candy, and the impressions of a town where yesterday enriches today..."

Aspiring Innkeepers take note

"In our recent travels to New Hope, Pennsylvania, we met Carl Glassman – innkeeper and co-author of the book How to Start and Run Your Own Bed and Breakfast Inn, now available its second edition. Carl and wife Nadine also offer innkeeping seminars that allow would-be innkeepers to share their interest during a two-day one-night workshop in a relaxed small-group setting.

Carl’s book is available through the usual online sources, but you can purchase an autographed copy by calling the Wedgwood Inn directly (215-862-2570) or online at www.wedgwoodinn.com. The web site also offers information about the Wedgwood’s innkeeping seminars and individually tailored innkeeping apprenticeship programs."
