This classic Greek Revival was built by the Delaware & Hudson Canal Company as the office and home for Judge Thomas J. Ridgway. He was their local superintendent and the tallyman for the Delaware dam. Staying at this authentic 1870 landmark allows for a personal experience of the beauty and history of the area. In addition to the great scenery at your doorstep, all guestrooms all have private bath, A/C, tv/dvd, free wi-fi, and some have a fireplace.
The front porch is a favorite place to watch hummingbirds or view the paddlers on the river. You can also relax at the water's edge, viewing Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct (aka Roebling Bridge), the oldest suspension bridge in the USA. A walk across the bridge is a great introduction to the area’s history--interpretive posters line the path. Chances are good you’ll see a bald eagle or two during your stay, frequently perched in the inn's riverbank tree.
Innkeepers are happy to share their expert local knowledge on restaurants, fishing guides, main street towns, local spas, canoe rentals, hiking paths, Bethel Woods or classes at a Buddist Temple.
A delicious full breakfast is 8-10am. Hot tea and cookies are available all day.
