New Hope accommodations run the gamut from upscale swanky to homespun cozy. But one local B&B offers something that will fire up weekenders who seek something different in where they stay.
A 19th century fire station in Lambertville now stands as a plush and wholly unique lodging site. Gone are the horse stalls, poles and fire bells, although the latter might have made for a unique wake-up call if it were somehow Wi-Fi connected to a phone alarm.
In their place are two bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, Victorian details and a roof deck.
Oh, and the place is pet friendly. What Dalmatian wouldn’t feel right at home here?
The décor leans heavily on contemporary art, with colorful tapestries, bold-print pillows, unique statuary and patterned window treatments.
The antique structure has all the 21st century necessities: speedy Internet, massaging shower sprays, impressive sound system, and double-oven stove.
The multi-level lodging does require the ability to navigate stairs, given the building’s tall, thin rise.
One reviewer, Amanda, called it “Clean, funky, and comfortable.”
