Upon reflecting on 25 years in business, Carl states, "Thanks to all of our loyal customers, the two-legged as well as the four-legged variety, and their great word-of mouth referrals, we are still going strong in 2007!" Dinie adds, "As hard as it is to believe, it was 25 years ago, in April, 1982, that we opened the doors of our Victorian Wedgwood Inn with a dream and our fingers crossed. It has been a wonderful journey and we truly appreciate living and keeping an inn in this great place called New Hope."

"We're Coming Back"
Carl and Dinie, we are looking forward to
our stay in June 2008. As Elle had said when she called
yesterday, we were among the early visitors to the Wedgewood Bed
and Breakfast Inn. We were there with friends in 1982 over, what
we think was the 4th of July. We remember sitting on the porch
with you guys and watching a parade so are guessing the 4th. We
returned several times throughout the 80's because we enjoyed
Wedgewood so much. We also rememeber that one of the times we
came back we brought fresh bagels from New York because one of
you had said 'there were no good bagels in New Hope'.

"Happy Anniversary Wedgwood!"
Sorry it took so long to send our pictures. Thanks again for a beautiful weekend. Great way to celebrate my 40th birthday! Your superb in-town location is exceeded only by your effortless hospitality and luxury accommodations. Happy Anniversary to you and Wedgwood Inn. And wishing you many more happy years of innkeeping.

"Wedgwood is the Best!"
My wife and I have made yearly visits to the Wedgwood Collection of Inns for the past 12 years. We have found their accommodations, food, service, and ambience to be of extremely high quality. Friendly, helpful staff with good humor create a feeling of being welcomed home. This tastefully appointed Victorian inn is adorned by beautiful, artistically designed gardens. They are within walking distance to the village of New Hope, which makes their inn even more desirable and exceedingly convenient during tourist season. Their free easy-access high speed wireless internet connection is an added benefit for those who require this amenity. I am a world-traveler who was raised not far from New Hope. I know the surrounding area quite well and can tell you, without reservation, that the Wedgwood Inn is a rare, precious gem within the treasure chest that is known as New Hope. We are looking forward to our next visit with great excitement!

"Our 20 year tradition continues!"
When my wife and I first chose an establishment in which to spend a few nights celebrating her birthday in January, 1987, she chose the Wedgwood Inn. Before the days of the Internet, she had seen a picture of the main house and the 1833 Umpleby House next door in a brochure and was intrigued. But our delight upon entering the actual premises was much more profound, because it was indeed like stepping into the past. The rooms were all different, but the quality was wonderful with authentic touches of the period dotting each corner of our "home away from home" which it became every year after our initial visit.
Our hosts, Carl and Dinie Glassman and Jasper, the lab and now Tootsie, the lab, made us feel almost like family. Perhaps one of the highlights each year was getting to talk with other guests in the afternoon when tea and cookies were provided in the drawing room. On one memorable afternoon, we started telling jokes and almost missed dinner. Speaking of food, Carl and Dinie know every restaurant in town and make reservations for us, just as they did two nights ago on our last stay. But nothing can compare to the anticipation of having breakfast at the Wedgwood Inn unless it's tasting the actual food. There is always something special for guests in that bread basket or the oven.
My wife and I aren't unique in our repeated visit to the Wedgwood
Inn. We often meet people who have been there numerous times. The
charm of the city, the hosts, the rooms, the quality of the food and
the chance to step back into the past make it our favorite place.
