About Our Inn
The Fox and Hound Bed and Breakfast of New Hope, Pennsylvania has Revolutionary War era stories and structures for guests to view.
For 205 years it was run as a family farm. On our 2 acres is the archeological remains of the original 1760’s stone barn that housed Revolutionary War soldiers for 2 cold winter weeks in 1776. These soldiers then crossed the Delaware on Christmas Eve night with George Washington to surprise the enemy in Trenton. You can visit this historic site on our property!
In modern times, our romantic and historic inn has had many proposals, engagements and wedding ceremonies held in guest rooms or the gazebo or on balconies and patios. In 1923, Bernard McDonnell, a member of the second family to own the House, became New Hope’s Justice of the Peace and probably officiated wedding ceremonies on site. That’s 92 years of couples finding romance and happiness at the Fox and Hound’s Manor house!
