Great peaceful and calm getaway location!

4,6 su dicembre 06, 2017

My wife and I decided to get away for our anniversary weekend. We were delighted to stay on the Widow McCrea House. The grounds around the house are beautifully kept and the outside lights accent the exterior nicely. There was a feeling of warmth as you walk into the house and see the beautifully vintage decorated dining room and continues with the very cozy living room with a fireplace. Our room was immaculate, spacious and very comfortable. As if all of this wasn't splendid already, the warm welcome and hospitality of the owner, Lynn, definitely put it over the top. She interacted with us in every opportunity she had and made us 2 delicious breakfasts. Her honey baked grapefruit and french toast are a must! The laid-back pace of the area, the coziness of the Widow McCrea House and the warmth of Lynn were just the experiences we were seeking and thankfully received. We would definitely recommend the Widow McCrea House for a nice getaway.

Third Time Staying at the Widow!!

5 su ottobre 29, 2017

This is the third time we stayed at the Widow McCrea House and once again it was outstanding, Beautiful and immaculate suite, great hosts, and wonderful breakfasts. And you can easily walk to downtown Frenchtown. My favorite B & B!!

Nice place to stay

4,6 su ottobre 09, 2017

Even though you do get some noise from the nearby street, this is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are quaint, and the breakfasts worth traveling for. This is my 3rd stay at this b&b and we will be back!

Widow McCrea House, Frenchtown

4,0 su settembre 27, 2017

Widow McCrea House was a great place to stay in Frenchtown. I was in the Tuccamirgin Room which is a good size room with a large bath. Everything was clean and comfortable. Within walking distance of Frenchtown which is a cool little town to visit, especially in late September with the leaves starting to change colors. Lynn is a wonderful cook, delicious breakfasts, nice variety and the baked goods could be meals in themselves. She is very welcoming and I enjoyed our conversations. PS While I was working on this yesterday, I hope I didn't send it out accidentally. I was still trying to figure it out and when I came back to this page it was gone. Please delete that incomplete review if that's the case. Thanks

Comfortable, great breakfast

We stayed in the Tuccamirgin room, which was comfortable and very clean. Frenchtown is cute and within easy walking distance. Lynn and her husband were very welcoming and breakfast was lovely

Second visit as good as the first.

5 su febbraio 23, 2017

We stayed at the Widow McCrea from 2/18 to 2/20/2017. This was our second visit after 1 1/2 years and we were not disappointed. Beautiful, immaculate, delicious breakfasts and wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Anne James Suite and it is well worth the few extra dollars. Also, the Widow McCrea is a very short walk to downtown Frenchtown, so you can avoid driving when going out to dinner. We look forward to returning the the fall.

Widow McCrea Frenchtown NJ

4,0 su gennaio 10, 2017

The Widow McCrea House is located in a wonderful area of New Jersey, tucked away from the main street to provide quiet and solitude yet close enough to the heart of Frenchtown to take a quick ride or walk in and enjoy the restaurants and shops. There are a handful of nice places to eat with great bars and views, as well as an eclectic ranges of shops offering artistic items and higher end housewares. The WMH has a welcoming and attentive staff with nicely adorned and comfortable rooms. On the first night they offered a bottle of wine as a welcome gift. The breakfast part of the B&B comes with a three-course meal that is plentiful and diverse, with offerings such as roasted grapefruit and challah french toast. If you are looking for a true getaway this is a great place to meet your needs. There is a tow path along the river that is exclusively for walking, running, and bicycling, with bridges and nearby small towns to visit on a short car ride.

Great Victorian house with beautiful furniture and delicious food in lovely Frenchtown

4,2 su dicembre 29, 2016

We stayed here two years in a row in two different rooms and enjoyed it very much, though one room is very noisy and should be avoided. This year we stayed in the Privacy Suite and while the room is nice enough, it is very noisy. It is underneath an upstairs room and is attached to the kitchen, so early morning food preparation and sounds from the upstairs room until all hours of the morning made for a terrible night's sleep. I would not do that again. It's worth the extra money for the Anne Jaynes room inside the house, which is lovely.

Exceeded my expectations

4,8 su dicembre 27, 2016

Friendly welcome. Gorgeous rooms furnished with Victorian antiques. (I wouldn't bring small children here.) Parlor for enjoying a fire and the company of others. The only thing the room lacked was a surface on which I could have set up my laptop. Ditto for the parlor. Because of early departure I couldn't experience the three course breakfast, but hostess went out of her way to serve me scones, herbed eggs, and fruit at 7:00. She didn't have to do that, and I very much appreciated it!.

Amazing & Romantic B&B

5 su novembre 30, 2016

Stood in the cottage for 2 nights and it was worth every penny. Best part for me was the Jacuzzi with the sky view and the breakfast. The breakfast alone tasted like it was from a 5 star restaurant.

The very lovely widow mccrae

Lovely facility and grand breakfast too!

Beautiful Stay

5 su novembre 09, 2016

Amazing place to spend our babymoon. Lynn made an amazing breakfast each morning. Room was spacious and clean for the price and I loved using the Jacuzzi tub for two.

Impeccable service & wonderful hosts...

4,4 su ottobre 26, 2016

Lynn and Burt made our stay a memorable birthday celebration! My boyfriend and I were enchanted by the lovely and spacious Privacy Suite with jacuzzi. The creative and delicious breakfasts made for a memorable dining experience. Suffice it to say we felt like a king and queen! The only regret I had was not being able to extend my stay... ;)

Lyn is a superb chef and served us a magnificent hot breakfast. She is also a gracious hostess and did everything she could to make our stay enjoyable. Ken and Judith Springer

Adorable B&B

4,8 su settembre 03, 2016

We stayed in the Widow McCrea House's Case Cottage, which was an adorable stand-alone dwelling with it's own private patio. The cottage was perfect for our family, as we did not have to worry that our 6-year-old would bother other guests. The cottage has it's own kitchenette, but the B&B provided a HUGE and delicious breakfast. It also has a large bathroom with jacuzzi bathtub. Very beautiful.

Beautiful weekend at the Widow McCrea

Wanted a relaxing Memorial Day getaway and The Widow McCrea was the perfect answer.... breakfast and the company was exceptional

Excellent stay even though the weather was bad

5 su maggio 16, 2016

This is our second time staying at the Widow. We stayed in the Privacy suite which was very nice. The rooms are very clean and Lynn is an excellent host. My wife and I are vegan, The host helped us find places we could eat and also made us an excellent breakfast each morning that we were there. Would recommend staying at the Widow any time you are in Frenchtown. It is located walking distance from frenchtown and other small towns for visiting.

Outstanding Experience

This is exactly what we were looking for. The friendly hospitality contributed to our great experience.

What a lovely bed and breakfast. Rooms were beautiful and the breakfast was amazing!!

Fabulous stay

5 su gennaio 14, 2016

We had a wonderful stay at The Widow McCrea House. The owners were very accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable about the history of the town and things to do during our stay. The Widow McCrea House was quaint, clean, and gave a very warm homey feel. I would definitely come again and would highly recommend to others.

Had a wonderful get away at The Widow McCrea House. It was very charming and gave a real homey feel. The owners were very friendly and accommodating as well as being very knowledgeable about the town history, events, and dining in the area. Would definitely come back and stay again and highly recommend others give it a try.

We loved our stay

4,8 su dicembre 30, 2015

Every detail is attended to-- so many beautiful pieces of furniture, the bed is soft as a cloud, the tub is candle-lit and the water stays warm for hours, the food is creative and delicious. We stayed in the Anne-James suite, which was lovely. Frenchtown is small, quaint and within walking distance, the D&R bike path as well. One pays a premium, but in the end, it's worth it. We never felt so relaxed.

Just excellent!

4,8 su novembre 01, 2015

All around fabulous! Breakfast was 5 star!

Great Value!

5 su luglio 05, 2015

This is a beautiful old house right near town. The breakfasts were creative and delicious and prepared by our host and hostess. And the rates are much more reasonable compared to nearby New Hope and Lambertville.

Great location, great rooms, very comfortable, great service, very much liked the hostess. Breakfast took too long.

A lovely stay for a weekend getaway

4,8 su aprile 22, 2015

My girlfriend and I needed a getaway for the weekend due to ye olde stress of everyday life, so I chose to stay here as it was far enough removed from suburban and city life that it became a pleasant thought. There's wonderful nature in the area and a small, quiet, village-like atmosphere about the town that made it feel very welcoming and pleasant. Lynn was very easy to talk with and worked with us to get things set for our late arrival. As for the Widow McCrea House itself, we stayed in the Privacy Suite, which is part of the main house and has its own private entrance, which is convenient so you don't interfere with other residents if you come back late at night. The room was both spacious and small enough for our needs, and the bathroom was just lovely. The jacuzzi is a very pleasant size and worked wonders - the fact that it turns off at 11pm is not an issue as far as I'm concerned. We used it as a giant hottub for the most part as we did not use the jets much. The wine that came with the room was a very nice touch (good taste in wine, by the way). The breakfast provided in the morning was delicious, creative, and well-presented. Definitely starts the day off right. All in all, had a great, relaxing time. It was just what we needed.

Nice weekend

4,4 su gennaio 15, 2015

Nice room, love the bell, breakfast was prompt and communication with the house was great. Gas fireplace was really the only let down of the stay, miss the wood smell. I would go back for sure

Wonderful Stay

5 su gennaio 04, 2015

We stayed in the Kase Cottage and it was lovely. It was decorated for the Christmas Holiday and was very comfortable. The fireplace was very cozy. We had a toddler with us and she loved everything, especially the huge bathroom and jacuzzi ( because it was the biggest tub she ever saw). Breakfast was delivered to us in a huge basket and was delicious! There was more than enough to eat. There were hot entrees, fruit, freshly baked muffins, and other items. It was very satisfying. I would definitely stay again.

Anniversary weekend getaway

This is the first time for us to experience B&B and we are not disappointed,the room is nice and cozy and the big bathroom,very clean.On top of that the host are very informative plus oh boy the amazing breakfast,as much as we want to eat it all it is so enormous.All in all we enjoy our stay and the exploring of the town and neighboring town.We had a great weekend!Thanks for making our stay and 27years of our wedding anniversary.

A little slice of heaven

5 su novembre 19, 2014

Fantastic, beautiful, peaceful, relaxing and romantic. The Hosts were great, the Victorian Era Home is exqusitely decorated, the Bath was absolutely a mini spa.. The breakfasts were exceptional ! Can't wait to return ! Thanks again Dave & Renata

Quiet and Cozy - Exactly what you need to relax

4,6 su novembre 12, 2014

We had a wonderful stay for our 5 year wedding anniversary. Room was clean, quiet, and cozy. The drive to New Hope from this location can either be quick, or more scenic, depending on what side of the river you travel. Lots of nice villages in the area. This was our second stay at Widow McCrea, and we are looking forward to a return trip!

Pleasant overnight stay

3,8 su novembre 03, 2014

This is a lovely inn and it's close to the hub of the town. Our room was clean, with a modern, big bathroom. The only drawback was breakfast took too long. For a sit down at 9am, with only 4 guests staying, the entrees weren't served till 10:30. Also, if you use B&B gift cards, the innkeeper wants remaining balance in cash.

Great Accomodations and great food

5 su ottobre 29, 2014

Our children surprised us with a quick getaway for our anniversary. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The innkeepers, Lynn and Bert were very nice and knowledgeable of the local area; and also gave us the history of this house, along with possible ghost sightings - friendly ghosts. We didn't see any, but we hope to return next year to see one!. The breakfast's we had were great, with a lot of food and pleasant conversation with the guests and with Bert. It was a very nice Fall weekend in western NJ, and eastern Pa, and we were a short distance to local food, shopping and sights. Great place to go to!

Like going back in time

3,8 su ottobre 08, 2014

We stayed in the Rittenhouse suite which was the original master bedroom for the widow McCrea - no ghost but extremely comfortable accommodations. The food at breakfast was delightful and filling with lots of personal attention and historical narrative on Frenchtown and neighboring areas. Very convenient to town with just a few blocks to walk to get to town center.

Nice experience, way too much food.

4,4 su giugno 29, 2014

Everything was great, the room was nice, the mattress the best I have ever had outside of my own. The Breakfast very tasty and well explained by our host Burt. My only complaint was there was way too much food and it seemed wasteful. None of us were able to come close to finishing. Perhaps if it was a group of 20 year old boys, it would have been perfect, but for us older folks, way too much.


5 su giugno 23, 2014

My husband and I came for a much-needed weekend away. We had such a great time. It was so beautiful. The breakfasts were out of this world!

From the Ferners

All good, breakfast a little late for us early risers.


4,4 su giugno 11, 2014

The cottage at the McCrea house was amazing! The private patio/garden was so beautiful. Breakfast was out of this world - it came to our door in a basket, giving us ultimate privacy! It was the perfect getaway.

Can't wait to go back !

4,8 su marzo 08, 2014

My husband and I chose the Widow McCrea House for itself, rather than any interest in Frenchtown. We were pleasantly surprised.... it was even better than we expected. We stayed in the Anne-James suite, and absolutely loved that room ! My favorite was the fireplace, but all the furnishings in the room and throughout the house were beautiful. I also loved the French Doors into the bathroom with the Jacuzzi tub. The house is artfully decorated... lots of antiques but done in a very cozy feel rather than stuffy. The breakfast was outstanding, and we loved chatting with Burt. A lovely weekend indeed, and we look forward to going back.

Great B&B

5 su febbraio 20, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at this B&B for Valentine's Day weekend and absolutely loved it. The room was comfortable, the owners were helpful and kind, and the breakfast was delicious. There was also a common area with a fireplace, which was also relaxing. In addition, the area that this in is located was lovely. So quaint. We recommend this spot to anyone!

Amazing Romantic Weekend

5 su febbraio 10, 2014

Widow McCrea House is fantastic. We stayed in the Kase Cottage and it was our very own little paradise. You could simply want for nothing as it is fully furnished with all the amenities you need and more. Breakfast was delicious both mornings. The village of Frenchtown is wonderful. Quaint shops, beautiful view, great food and nice people. We will be back for sure!

Love Frenchtown, B & B just OK

2,6 su novembre 03, 2013

We have been making regular trips to Frenchtown (over an hour away) for years. We love this little river town and its warm and friendly atmosphere. We've always wanted to try the Widow McRae House and expected it to be an extension of the magic that is Frenchtown. It is just OK....not at all "warm and friendly" and, compared to many other B & B's that we have visited, we came away thinking that we would probably not go back. Disappointed.

First stay in the Cottage!

4,6 su ottobre 21, 2013

We have stayed at The Widow Mccrea several times but this was our first stay in the Kase Family Cottage and it was wonderful! The size, privacy and extra touches like private garden, refrigerator, fire place and music made this a perfect getaway. Three years ago we got engaged during our stay in the Anne James Room and last week we were married in New Hope Pa. The cottage was an excellent honeymoon retreat and Innkeepers Lynn and Burt were great hosts as always. We absolutely loved the breakfast baskets especially the peach french toast and broccoli fritatta! Can't wait to go back! Tom & Ruth

Awesome B&b

5 su agosto 01, 2013

My husband and I were looking for a place half way between New Hope Pa and Readington NJ so we could go to the NJ Festival of Ballooning. We decided on the Widow McCrea House. The innkeepers, Lynn and Burt were very hospitable. Along with a wonderful breakfast Burt shared stories about the history of the area and recommended some great sites to see and places to visit. There is lots to do in the area, from wineries , to tubing to shopping. The house is very nice and our room was very cozy. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in the area. It's only about 30 minutes to New Hope, and very affordable. We look forward to returning.

Hidden Gem Close to Home

4,2 su agosto 01, 2013

Very convenient. Within an easy drive (or bike ride) to New Hope and Lambertville. Rates are very reasonable, yet you can enjoy the sites and restaurants of the aforementioned towns. Owners are very friendly, and knowledgeable about the history of the house and also the area. You must check it out. The french toast breakfast was outstanding. I am proud to say I was the only one at the table who was able to finish it! The other breakfast was Brie omelette that was not my cup of tea.

Review of the Widow McCrea House

5 su luglio 08, 2013

The suite room was wonderful and I would also consider the Cottage next time. The breakfast was delicious and an enjoyable morning opportunity to get to know the other guests. Bert and Lynn are just such wonderful hosts and were so attentive, considerate as well as helpful which made our stay more enjoyable. We look forward to returning and enjoying the sights, the hosts and our lodging at The Widow McCrea House.

nice B&B

3,4 su giugno 26, 2013

Great little B&B, nice rooms and excellent breakfasts. Our only complaint was that our room, the Widow McRae Room, which is the smallest in the house, was rather cramped. Every available surface was filled with decorative objects, making it impossible to put any of our belongings or even the supplied towels anywhere but on the floor. The owner is charming but rather garrulous. Still, we'd go back to enjoy Frenchtown and its environs.

Spring Fling

5 su giugno 21, 2013

How do more people not know about Frenchtown and the Widow McCrea House. What a hidden gem! We stayed in the Kase Cottage which was private and well appointed with many upscale features. The garden was a special treat and specifically designed to enhance the cottage. We drank champagne, looked at the stars and got engaged! Thank you WMC for providing the perfect, romantic getaway.

Spring fling

5 su giugno 20, 2013

My boyfriend and I spent a picture-perfect weekend at the Widow McCrea House. The Kase Cottage was more than we could've asked for. Not only was it beautiful and very clean, the location amenities and privacy made it a perfect choice for us. The garden was the best and gave us the opportunity to toast each other and our love under the stars . We got engaged!!!

A unique treat

5 su giugno 03, 2013

Breakfast was awesome! House was delightful! Burt and Lynn were very welcoming! A sure key place to stay!

Great Biking

4,6 su maggio 16, 2013

We had a wonderful time at the Widow McCrea house. I'd recommend that you bring a bike, or rent one downtown. There is so much to see in the surrounding area! We managed to go to a brew pub and winery just heading up and down the canal path. The accommodations were excellent, featuring antique furniture, and a charming atmosphere. Our candlelit, four-course breakfast was outstanding and highlighted locally sourced foods. Our hostess was very gracious and directed us to many of the local attractions. I'd highly recommend this establishment.

A Great Find in the Skylands area of NJ

4,0 su maggio 01, 2013

We found the Widows House as our normal stays in that area were booked. We stayed in the Privacy Suite and enjoyed the stay. Normally that room gets breakfast served in the room but as they were not booked up Lynn and Burt invited us to have Breakfast in the Dining Room both days of our stay. The Bed was comfortable and the facilities were excellent. I would recommend the Widow McCrea's house to anyone that wants to decompress. They are situated just North of the bustling New Hope/Lambertville area and just South of our favorite small town of Milford where you can dine and have a microbrew at the Ship Inn. Sorry Frenchtown your are second on our list.

A Great Getaway

5 su aprile 18, 2013

I'm the pastor of a church in Philadelphia and after Holy Week, Easter and a Funeral services, I needed some time away to rejuvenate and to be with my wife. Having browsed the internet to find B & Bs near New Hope, PA (it was just a two-day getaway), I decided on the Widow McCrea B & B in Frenchtown, NJ. Yes, price was a factor in the decision, as was location, and, truth be told, the double jacuzzi tub played a part, too. The website mentioned the great and creative breakfasts which was less of a deciding factor. What we got was a house and a room that, frankly, I couldn't believe how often I was saying how cute and charming it was. And, it was! OK, enough of the cute and charming (a guy can only say that so many times). I chose a room with less flowers (I can deal with only so much cute and charming), the name of which I won't mention, lest you get it when I want to go back! It was a great room and bath (and did I mention jacuzzi), and really (oh, here we go again) charming. Our hosts were wonderful and extremely helpful (oh, yeah, like getting us reservations at two wonderful restaurants nearby, but seeing that we could be seated in the most (egad!) charming section of one of them. In addition, since it is our practice to go to church on Sunday, they found for us a nearby church whose service would allow us to also partake of their really great and creative breakfasts (yeah, the same ones they advertise, it's true) which we would have missed had we attended the only services that I was able to find. Bottom line: Are we going back? You'd better believe it!!!!

Living Large in Frenchtown

4,6 su novembre 07, 2012

A very comfortable visit. The Widow McCrea house is close to the center of Frenchtown so access to the shops and restaurants is very convenient. The rooms are comfortable, breakfast is excellent and the hosts are very accommodating.

Wonderful and Relaxing!

5 su ottobre 24, 2012

This is our third return. We stayed in the privacy sweet twice and then this time we stayed in the guest cottage to celebrate our 30th anniversarry. We loved the private courtyard and we especially LOVED the fireplace. It was easy to operate and was very cozy! The breakfast basket was delicious! Warm entree with fresh fruit and orange juice, plus! Biking at the nearby trail along the river was fantastic! We also had a fantastic lunch at the Lovin' Oven-delicious! We will be back again soon!

Wonderful weekend

4,6 su ottobre 17, 2012

What a wonderful weekend break we had, our room was everything we expected the fireplace in the room was a really nice touch, it was a real treat to relax in the jacuzzi, even the candles and lighter were there.

Breakfast was very special the food was amazing thank you Lyn! We will go back to the Widow McCrea's again.

My husband and I had a wonderful, peaceful weekend at the Widow McCrea House. Our room was cozy and comfy. The breakfasts were fantastic and the stories were wonderful. We didn't see any ghosts this time but I could have swore I heard a few things. We hope to visit again in the future.

We will return.

Breakfast was delicious but too many carbs. The entire place was immaculate. Hosts were interesting and informative.

Outstanding Breakfasts

5 su agosto 03, 2012

The Widow McCrea House was all I expected it to be and more. What I expected it to be was a clean 1800's style house with a room that left me feeling like I would be living in the 1800's. (with upgrades of course) and I got more when it came to breakfast. Both days the breakfast was outstanding. Pouch peaches and Honey warmed grapefruit, Raspberry Sause and Brie in and Egg Wrap and French Toast that will knock you out. Served to you in an elegant dinner atmosphere. No continental breakfast here. It is perfectly located to be able to explore the entire serene area of NJ and PA along the Delaware River. It was a great way to spend my wife's birthday.

The Widow McCrea House, Nice and just as advertised!

4,6 su luglio 30, 2012

Perfect place to stay if you are in Frenchtown. Easy walking distance to the town centre, and far enough up the hill to be quiet during the evening. Definitely coming back.

a wonderful B&B

4,6 su luglio 21, 2012

Came to Frenchtown for a wedding and chose the Widow Mcrea. We had a great stay in the privacy suite. All furnishing were of the period of the home, late 1800s. The bed was comfortable and the room was very nice. Seating was not comfortable and lacking. The bathroom was modern and very nice. The food was outstanding and delivered to our room each morning, nice! The coffee that was in the room for us to make was terrible and stale. That was a disappointment as we love our coffee. For us it was not a problem as we travel with our own grinder and special beans. But others would be not so lucky. All in all we had a very nice stay, except that we had food poisoning from the National Hotel. Dont eat there!

Great place to stay while in Frenchtown!

When we want to get away from the city, we always come here. We are never disappointed neither by the quaintness of the cottage nor by the food or beautiful surroudings.

mother's day retreat

4,6 su maggio 31, 2012

I recently stayed Memorial Day Weekend at the Widow McCrea House with my partner and took my mom as a mother's day present. The rooms were beautifully decorated with exceptionally comfortable beds and pleasant air-conditioning which was very welcome considering the hot weather. We were greeted in the morning by Burt's welcoming personality and Lynn's delicious baked treats and a sumptuous breakfast. It was a lovely stay and Burt was very accommodating in giving us recommendations for things to do in the area and places to dine and great with directions. We received a complimentary bottle of white wine in the room which was a pleasant surprise. The area was very picturesque and I would definitely return again in the future.

A lovely bandb in a lovely town.

Well located, well-maintained, pleasant in every way. Accommodations include a l-e-i-s-u-r-e-l-y breakfast.

"Charming Bed & Breakfast"

The Widow McCrea House was everything we'd hope it would be. We were very happy with our stay and our hosts. We would stay there again.

A very nice and reasonably priced B&B for the value

3,2 su gennaio 11, 2012

We perhaps were spoiled and had too high expectations based on our last stay at the Woolverton Inn, and the Inn at Bowman's Hill prior to that... While both the aforementioned are truly expensive and high end - they can easily skew your view of any other traditional B&B. We also believe we'd have enjoyed our stay here significantly more if it had been spring or summer and we could take advantage of the entire experience. Very nicely decorated and warm hosts. The breakfast was a slight disappointment, only again, due to our more recent experiences - but the food that was provided was very tasty. Coffee brewed and delivered for breakfast would be a big plus, versus the little coffee maker in the room. Otherwise, a lovely stay.

My Weekend Getaway

My husband and I booked the suite to celebrate our anniversary. We had a great time. The room was big and cozy, the atmosphere was romantic and relaxing. The breakfast is out of this world. I will definetely book again! Maritza and Marocs Gonzalez

Fountains and Gardens and Roses ~ Oh my!

5 su giugno 08, 2010

What a welcome! We stopped by the Widow McCrea House and immediately felt right at home. The hostess was charming and friendly and showed us to a lovely suite with an enormous jacuzzi. Our stress melted away. We felt pampered and indulged in our own private getaway. The fountains outside our room were melodious and relaxing and the garden was in full bloom. We could smell the roses from our window. Breakfast came to us each morning in a basket right to our doorstep. What a delight! We are so glad we found the Widow McCrea House. Could it get any better than this?

4th Visit

5 su aprile 23, 2010

This is such a charming Inn. This has been my 4th time there. We love the location and the breakfasts are the best! My husband and I go to many bed and breakfasts and really enjoy this type of experience. On our last visit, we stayed in the luxurious Anne James Suite. This is our favorite room yet, but next time we want to try the Kase Cottage. We like to experience each room since The Widow Mccrea House is a unique environment. Every room is different, so our goal is to try them all. Frenchtown is a quick and easy drive from our home in Delaware, so it makes it easy to get away without going too far away. We recommend the Widow Mccrea House to our friends and this year we want to give Widow McCrea gift certificates to our friends for the Holidays.

The people were very nice. They cooked an excellent breakfast. They were also very knowledgeable about area events and attractions. The place is on a main road, and our room was in the front of the house, so there was some road noise. I would recommend asking for a room in the back of the house

Comfortable elegant historical inn

5 su luglio 05, 2009

We stayed on a Wednesday night in June '09, in the Privacy Suite. The room was comfortable and quiet. The furnishings were outstanding. The breakfast was superb - plenty to eat, variety; I especially enjoyed the granola-apple concoction, and the frittata was also delicious. In-room coffee maker was a plus. This inn combines the feel of an historic house with modern bath facility.

Great B&B in Frenchtown

5 su dicembre 22, 2007

We just returned from a nice trip along the Delaware. We could only stay one night in this wonderful B&B. Really nice old house, well maitained with antique furniture, very comfortable and cozy room. Yes, you can hear the road a bit and people coming or going but still slept like logs. Breakfast was wonderful, three courses and very delicious! Would definitely come back here.

Very nice B&B

4,2 su dicembre 02, 2007

We stayed at the Widow McCrea House for our anniversary. It is a charming Victorian Inn. The place is very tastefully decorated with beautiful antiques. The owners are warm and friendly.They provide a bottle of wine for each guest which is a nice touch. The breakfast was delicious and the presentation of the food was very artistic.This bed and breakfast is in a great location near lots of quaint shops. It is also near a great biking path along the river. I would stay there again.

Spring into Spring

5 su maggio 07, 2007

We just spent a wonderful weekend at the Widow McCrea House. The Inn is so charming, the weather was picture perfect and Lynns' breakfasts were to die for! Couldn't be happier and will absolutely return. Additionally this was the cleanest B & B we have ever stayed in. Kudos!

I loved my stay at the Widow McCrea

Hello, I am a yankee (Mainer) visiting family in the Frenchtown area and had the good fortune to be advised of a lovely little Bed and Breakfast called the Widow McCrea House. I am staying at the Inn as I write this note and I couldn't be more pleased! The Inn is beautifully appointed and the rooms are comfortable, spacious and well above your average B and B. My suite is very beautiful. It has a fireplace and a wonderful, big jacuzzi. The antiques are well chosen and of very good quality. When I made my reservation, I was told that they are known for their breakfasts. Well they are not kidding! We were served 3 courses by candlelight and all of it was excellent and beautifully presented. The hostess is charming, lovely and very accommodating. I come from a resort area where we have B and B's on nearly every street. There is nothing like this where I come from. I most certainly will visit here again and tell my traveling friends. In addition, Frenchtown NJ is most charming! Quaint shops, friendly natives and good dining. I love it here! Most Sincerely, Annette S. Hillock Camden, Maine

"Spring Fling in Frenchtown"

5 su febbraio 11, 2007

Lets face it, March is not the premiere month to vacation in NJ. That said, let me tell you what a great time we had at the Widow McCrea House. Although the weather was cool and dreary, the Inn's hostess/owner Lynn was sunny, gracious and pleasant. The Widow McCrea House has been in operation since 1997 and the owners attitude is a shining example of someone who loves her Inn, her guests, and is a testiment to professionalism in a business that can undoubtedly be challenging. What made our weekend even more enjoyable is that the owner is a life long equestrian as are we. We spent many enjoyable hours swapping stories, talking horses and admiring her collection of antique and vintage equestrian equipment that is displayed throughout the Inn. Our room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The only negative comment I can make (and this is only so I don't appear to be gushing about the place) is that as in any old structure (this was once a victorian house before it became an Inn) sounds, voices and other rooms TV's, can be heard. Personally, this does not bother me, as I understand the nature of B & B's in general.Having lived in NYC for many years prior to relocating to my current home in VA, I am not effected by much. These are common things and can be expected. The breakfasts were wonderful and actually more than I would eat on most days entirely! We enjoyed meeting and socializing with the other guests. Local dining is top shelf and Frenchtown is quaint and charming with friendly locals. Overall, we completely enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning this summer.
