- The Wishing Well Guest House -
Welcome to the Wishing Well Guest House -1850's Farmhouse
The property originally functioned as a farm and owned all of the surrounding land to the south. In contrast to city life,you'll find that our"home sweet home," is a beacon of tranquility We are located within walking distance of New Hope's quaint shops,restaurants, and galleries, and if you want to enjoy nature at its finest, all you need do is step outside our back door. The backyard also contains the original wishing well that gives our home its name.
The Wishing Well is just a short ten minute walk from the bus station that services Trans-Bridge with it's service to New York and Philadelphia. You'll find that the house and the property have a lot of character. There are six guest-rooms, two fireplaces, random width wooden floors, ceiling beams, antique furniture, a cozy dining area, and the original stone walls.
Whether you're looking for a romantic hideaway, or a comfortable home to use for a sight-seeing tour of the beautiful Bucks County countryside, or on a business trip, look no further.
A main attraction of the Wishing Well is the back acre of unspoiled woods that ends at Ingham creek, one of the county's oldest country creeks. As you walk down our "stairway to heaven" into the valley you are instantly transported into the solitude of nature at it's scenic best. Join our back yard companions: The cardinals, bluejays, rabbits and deer who call our back acre their home.
We find that a lot of people come to a B&B because they're looking for more than a pretty room or
a "homey" atmosphere.
They're looking to meet some of the local townspeople, and get the inside scoop of where to go and what to see.
We, pride ourselves in making sure you feel right at home and take pleasure in ensuring that you have "The Experience" as well as the lodging.

- What our Guests have to say -
My wife and I stayed there during my sisters wedding and I must say we had the best accommodations and the innkeeper was so kind and attentive to our needs . Especially to my wife who happen to be the Maid of Honor.
“Just the most wonderful place in New Hope...”
My boyfriend Eric and I selected the Wishing Well on-line out of every B&B in the New Hope area. We had never been there before, and were not sure what to expect... but we read all the reviews and it seemed perfect for us. We were not disappointed. Actually, we never want to stay anywhere else.
“Hospitality, Charm and Warmth define the Wishing Well Guest House”
My husband, our dog and I were in desperate need of lodging during Hurricane Sandy. We had been without power or heat for four days. A close friend suggested that I call the Wishing Well. They were incredibly accommodating to us even though they don't always take dogs. From the moment we walked in the door, Mike Cueto and Dan McDonald made us feel right at home. There was a fire in the fireplace. Snacks and wine had been put out. Our room was cozy and fit out with antiques. The most impressive part of all this is that Daniel Brooks, the owner, insisted on dropping the rates because so many people were out in the cold. The result was that I called friends and within 24 hours, two more couples we knew had checked in and fallen in love with the place.
