I was fortunate enough to stay at the Widow McCrea House for a friends wedding this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our room was beautifully decorated and very clean. Lynn, the proprietress couldn't have been nicer. She was so helpful and gave us recommendations for restaurants and local activities we could participate in as a group. She is...

On the plus side, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated - and the village of Frenchtown is worth a return trip. However, next time we will stay elsewhere. The hosts were not at home when we arrived even though we got there during the three hour check-in window and were likewise absent and/or detached during our three-day, two night...

While the room and amenities were about what was expected and adequate the attitude of the hostess left much to be desired. To begin with, three of us were driving over 500 miles to attend a friend's memorial service at the last minute. I booked two rooms on Saturday morning and found out on Sunday that the widow wanted us...

Clean and nicely decorated. Excellent breakfast. Would stay there again. Centrally located in nice little town of Frenchtown NJ. Canal nearby for easy bike riding. Short jaunt to tourist attraction, New Hope, PA. Quality B & B.

We stayed at the Widow McCrea last weekend. The house and it's location offer many fun and fabulous things to do. I love cycling, close by is the D & R Canal Towpath Bike Trail which snakes along the Delaware River. Breakfast was incredible, 3 courses-local and organic and delightful!

The Widow McCrea Bed and Breakfast is a beautifully decorated home with gorgeous antiques and in a perfect location for day trips to Grounds for Sculpture and Princeton University.

We needed a break from the real world and found it here. Our room was warm, quiet and cozy, tastefully decorated in the style of centuries past. Both the room and bath were clean and well-kept, and were especially inviting. The fresh flowers and bottle of wine were a lovely, unexpected touch. We were lulled to a restful night's sleep...

In the area for a party at the nearby Sand Castle Winery my friend and I shared a little cottage with a queen bed and extremely comfortable pull out sofa. The gas fire place took the chill of the rainy day away and made the place completely cozy. The spa-like bathroom with gorgeous jacuzzi was extremely nice. The cottage is...

I have family in the area. Whenever I come to town, I stay with innkeeper Lynn Marad. She really dots her I's and crossed the T's. Nothing is overlooked at this quality establishment.
