Nadine and Carl:

"My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful overnight at the Inn earlier this summer.  We had received a gift certificate for the Inn as a wedding gift and would like to do the same for our nephew and his fiance who are getting married next month.  How do we go about ordering a gift certificate--and we would like to add tickets for a performance at the Bucks County Playhouse?  Thank you again for excellent hospitality during our stay.  We look forward to hearing from you."

The seminars take place on site in New Hope and are set up to allow individuals and couples to meet one another and to discuss their interests in being an innkeeper. The hands-on workshops are led by Carl and Nadine with other innkeepers who serve as guest lecturers - and who give participants a much-needed reality check: is owning an inn as fun and intriguing as the fantasy?...  Click here to read entire article
