Re:  A Special Request

Dear Carl and Dinie,

Hope all is well. My husband Shawn and I have stayed at  your Inn's Canopy room (A) several times and always enjoyed our stay.

I need to ask you for a special favor. Back on 5/9/2008, Shawn and I took my parents to New Hope to celebrate Mothers Day and we stayed at the Inn on the night of 5/9/2008 (or perhaps it was 5/10/2008) My parents stayed at the room with a sitting room, a balcony, and a Jacuzzi on the second floor. I remember my dad wrote a beautiful message in Chinese Mandarin on the notebook provided at the room describing how much he and my mom enjoyed their stay at New Hope and your Inn.

My parents live in Taiwan and I only get to see them twice a year. My parents are getting older and every moment I spend with them is sacred to me, including the trip to New Hope two years ago. I miss them every much and am wondering if you can send me the page with my dad￿s message on.

I hope this is not too much trouble to ask. Please email me back and let me know if my request could be granted.  I hope to hear from you soon and hope Shawn and I will visit New Hope and stay at your Inn again this year. Thank you very much.

Dear Karin, I am happy to inform you that we found the
Guest Room Diary  from '08...Carl

The following is the Room Diary translation from Mandarin 9Chinese): 

We are visiting from Taiwan .  Today is Mother's Day.  Through our daughter and son-in-law's thoughtful arrangement, we came to visit this beautiful and artistic town (New Hope).  We enjoyed plenty of gourmet foods and had the privilege to spend the night at your gracious and welcoming Inn.  The classic, warm, and exquisite environment of the inn brought me sweet dreams in this mid-spring night.

We experienced the goodness of this world through the affection and care shown to us by our loving children.  We thank the Master for his blessings. 
Mr. and Mrs. C. (Taiwan)


Re: Girls Getaway

Carl, Nadine
Salutations!! It has been my intention (you know how those go!!) to email you on several occasions, however, I have been remiss until now... I'm hoping that my feedback will not carry less weight as the result of the time that has passed since our visit on 2/11, 2/12, 2/13. In fact it should carry MORE weight, because I'm still thinking back fondly to the time spent @ the Aaron Burr w/ our AMAZING host, EJ!! My girlfriends and I shared the top floor for the weekend and were greeted each morning by the ever-gregarious EJ and a scrumptious spread!! He made fantastic suggestions for dinner, (Marsha Browns) drinks, (Boat House) and sights around town. I doubt our stay would have been as enjoyable w/out his guidance and enthusiasm for our "vacation"!! I have already had several occasions to speak of our stay in your lovely B&B and have directed many to your web-site. I hope that you value the feedback of your former (and hopefully future) guests, as that was my intention in offering it up for your perusal. EJ is a TRUE asset to your already fine establishment!! I would be thrilled to find him still in attendance upon my next visit to New Hope and the Aaron Burr House!! Thanks again for your hospitality!!

Re: Wedding Service and Honeymoon

Thanks to everyone at the Inn for making our wedding day so fantastic! We really enjoyed our 3 night stay in Room 5: great king size Sleigh Bed... We'll definitely be back for our anniversary, and yes I'm freezing the top layer of my wedding cake till then. See you then, but pictures to follow sooner!

Re: Aspiring Innkeeppers

"We took your "How -To" workshop last winter and we are thrilled to inform you that we are now new innkeepers. Just like you predicted, our change from "Missles (Defence industry) to Muffins" was effortless with your 'zen of innkeeping' training!"

"New Hope is a real Colonial era village, and Lambertville a real Victorian town. With that sprinkling a snow last night, they are true winter wonderlands for December shopping and fine dining. And Aaron Burr House is the place to retreat to for a hot chocolate by the fireplace in our canopied bedroom."

"Wow! I had a fight with my honey the same week but 200 years apart from Burr's duel with Hamilton. The Burr and Hamilton families took 200 years to end their feud. With the help of this big lace-canopy bed, we kissed and made up in 2 minutes.
New Hope is for lovers, and the Aaron Burr House is the best place to kiss."

We had another wonderful time at your Inn.  We will recommend you to all our friends :>)

We enjoyed our stay at your B&B. Great location. Thanks for your hospitality - and breakfast-in-bed!

This is a super comfy, cozy, beautifully decorated inn. The homebaked cookies, Carl's secret recipe Almond Liquor and the fresh-picked apples were great touches. Our Breakfast Tray was beautifully presented too. Friendly and knowledgeable innkeepers topped off a relaxful midweek escape from life. Loved New Hope and the whole inn experience here.

"Finding New Hope Again"

"This small Pennsylvania rivertown melds its history - from 18th century village to '60's artist colony to trendy getaway destination - into a comfortable whole....The Wedgwood Inn is a two minute walk from Main Street - and Lambertville, New Jersey, a sister rivertown on the east bank of the Delaware River.  Rooms are appointed with an eclectic mix of Victorian furnishings, Wedgwood china and original art...our first pick for lodging in New Hope."
Native son, James A. Michener, welcomes you to Bucks County. (1994)
Bucks County is one of the few counties in the United States that is famous under its own name.  Cook County in Illinois and Dade in Florida are other examples.  Bucks County enhanced its well deserved fame in the early years of this century and for three good reasons.
First, its considerable physical beauty and its abundance of old family dwellings made it attractive to residents of New York City and Philadelphia.  This made it a kind of residential paradise, with its winding roads, covered bridges and beautiful valleys.  Second, a group of wonderfully gifted painters congregated in New Hope, making it the art capitol of the area and the center of an entire school of painting.  Daniel Garber, Edward Redfield and John Folinsbee gained national attention.
Third, in the 1920's onward a much different group of famous writers settled here, with Pearl Buck winning the Nobel Prize and others winning Pullitzers.  George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart  wrote their stage hits, Sid Pearlman his memorable satires, Dorothy Parker her witticism and Oscar Hammerstein his great books and lyrics for stage and musicals.
Bucks County was covered with writers and painters, but its good reputation  also rested on the basic structure of the area.  The small towns of Doylestown and New Hope became popular, the first for two castles built by Henry Mercer and New Hope for its sense of Nineteenth Century charm and interesting biuldings and fine dining.  Other towns like Quakertown and Bristol offered their own historic riches.
As a lifelong resident of Bucks and as one proud of his region's heritage of old English and German culture, I am proud to welcome you to my county and to extend hospitality to you and your family.  We have always welcomed visitors - since the time of William Penn.  George Washington had an auspicious time here, so did Edward Hicks, painter of "Peacable Kingdom."  And so can you.
