We all know Hudson County is a great place to live, but if you need to get away for the weekend – or longer – we’ve found the best spot nestled in the tree-covered hills of New Hope, Pennsylvania. Located at West 10 Ferry Street, the Logan Inn is the oldest building in New Hope (and just a 1.5 hour drive from Hoboken) and has expanded over the years to meet the demands of its growing community. Owned and operated by the same family for the past 20+ years, owners Jeanne and Frank Cretella have turned the Logan Inn into a must-stay destination for weekend getaways, wedding parties, and summer vacations. Keep reading to learn more about our recent getaway at the Logan Inn and why we’re obsessed with the charming town of New Hope, Pennsylvania.

Why We Love This Inn

What makes the Logan Inn a special experience is the distinct interiors which mix authentic historical charm with a luxurious contemporary design. Timeless textiles in the bedrooms are contrasted with modern bathrooms — which feature the softest, coziest linens. Each room is thoughtfully curated with intricate details in each item, making it a one-of-a-kind stay — from the handwritten welcome note to the Logan Inn stamped espresso cups and double-headed shower, we were in love. 

Suites at the inn feature suspended fireplaces, modern soaking tubs, and mixology stations complete with artisanal spirits, house made mixers, and king cube ice blocks.

The Logan Inn provides almost everything you could need like daily continental breakfast served 7:30AM to 10AM (don’t sleep on the doughnuts and pastries, they’re delicious!), valet service, a theater room for epic movie nights, an electric charging station, a whiskey lounge, and a cigar lounge.

The on-site restaurant, Ferry + Main is a great spot for lunch, dinner, and night caps. If you visit on the weekend, Sunday brunch is a must-try experience your tastebuds will thank you for. For dinner we highly recommend trying the Berkshire Pork Belly Bao Buns as an appetizer. No matter what you choose, it’s clear that Executive Chef Greg Vassos has a vision, using the freshest of local ingredients. The full-service bar has classic spirits, hand-crafted cocktails, a smart wine list, and local brews to try. Each drink is expertly prepared with a focus on attention to detail.

The History

The Logan Inn was built around 1722 and is the oldest building in New Hope. Originally known as The Ferry Tavern, it was built by New Hope founder John Wells. The name Logan came to the inn about 100 years after it was first licensed and after the ferry had ceased operation.

During a renovation in 1987, this historic landmark was brought back to its original colonial charm. The murals in the bar, uncovered during renovations and painstakingly restored by local artist Illia Barger, are an indication of the great care taken to preserve the history of the inn.

The inn again changed ownership in October of 2000 and underwent several updates that elegantly blended the inn’s colonial charm with modern day luxuries. The current owners, Frank and Jeanne Cretella of Landmark Hospitality, spent summers in New Hope with their family and always dreamed of owning a historic property. In 2015, they purchased the Logan Inn and, following renovations in 2021, have made it the premier destination it is today.
