The holiday season has come and gone, and as you’re packing up all your holiday decorations, you might be thinking to yourself “What next?” Although the holidays were an exciting time for events in Bucks County, there is still plenty to look forward to – especially in New Hope and Lambertville. Perhaps the most exciting is the highly anticipated Grand Opening of the Carriage House of New Hope Inn, planned to take place Friday, February 10. Carriage House’s hosts Kathy Commander and Donna Marshall are looking forward to welcoming guests and helping them experience the rich history and fun culture New Hope has to offer.
Over the past few weeks, the Carriage House of New Hope opened its doors to guests as a “test run,” and is pleased to announce that all feedback has been positive. Just a few phrases we heard from our guests’ comments were “top notch accommodations,” “awesome views,” and “a true gem.” Needless to say, we are looking forward to providing the same first-class experience to all our future visitors.
One of the greatest things New Hope is known for is its eclectic and delicious dining scene. From Mexican cuisine, to piano bars, to the oldest continually owned music club in the county – you can find it all in New Hope. And just as the spring tends to bring new beginnings, we’re excited to announce the face of downtown New Hope will continue to change with the addition of the Ferry Market. Located in the old Four Seasons Mall site, Ferry Market will be an upscale food market offering fresh, and prepared, flavorful, unique food items. You can stay updated on Ferry Market’s progress by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
New Hope’s diverse and unique dining scene is perhaps one the area’s biggest draws.
