Join us in celebrating our 30th year as innkeepers at
Wedgwood Bed and Breakfast Inn of New Hope
New Hope, Pennsylvania's 1870 Wedgwood Bed & Breakfast Inn, a nationally acclaimed New Hope bed and breakfast inn, 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.

We love innkeeping and we love New Hope...we were drawn here, and moved to New Hope, because we feel the greater New Hope/Lambertville area combines history, serenity, unique attractions, individually-owned shops, galleries, fine food and an active entertainment and arts scene that creates the perfect vacation spot. View our attractions and calendar of events page to learn more about New Hope as a four seasons destination.
We invite you to share our enthusiasm for the area and experience the warmth and comfort of our Inn for yourselves and to find New Hope in the Wedgwood Inn!
Cordially, Carl, Nadine and Jessica Glassman, props.
