Top 9 Memorial Day Weekend Getaways

Here at LeafFilter, we honor our servicemen and women year round. Many of our LeafFilter team members have served as military personnel, and we are thankful for their service...

On Memorial Day, we remember those who have fallen in service of the United States.

The inn takes its name from the third Vice President of the United States.  After Aaron Burr's infamous and fatal pistol duel with Alexander Hamilton in 1804, Burr escaped to New Hope for safe haven. The inn's stone foundation is all that remains of this pre-Revolutionary War era home where Burr is said to have hid for over a week. Today, our inn still offers a warm and hospitable welcome to weary travelers along the Old York Road. And the spirit of Aaron Burr can still be experienced at our inn...Learn more about Aaron Burr as a historical figure in colonial America at: About.com: American Originals
