Wedgwood Inn - Celebrating 25 years of Innkeeping

In April 2007, Dinie and Carl Glassman celebrated 25 years of innkeeping at their 1870 Wedgwood Inn. Dinie and Carl have led the Wedgwood Inn from humble beginnings into a fixture in the local innkeeping community. Dinie has guided the inn full time since its inception and has often been recognized for her role in hospitality and service in the travel and tourism industry.

As a thank you to the loyal houseguests who have made their B&B inn such a success, Carl and Dinie are giving away a complimentary "Mid-Week Escape Lodging Package" each month of their anniversary year.

The names will be drawn at random from their extensive database of houseguest names (from their Wedgwood Collection of Historic Inns: Wedgwood, Umpleby and the Aaron Burr House.) If you have not been a registered guest but would like to enter, go to the website to register - www.WedgwoodInn.com. Each month the winner will be chosen and notified via email.

The 1870 Wedgwood Bed & Breakfast Inn at 111 W. Bridge Street in lovely New Hope, PA, is a nationally acclaimed bed and breakfast inn. It is a Wedgwood-blue colored Victorian "Painted Lady" listed on Bucks County Registry of Historic Places. Wedgwood Inn is spelled Wedgwood, not 'Wedgewood' because Wedgwood Inn is named after the Englishman Josiah Wedgwood who invented the famous Wedgwood blue bone china. The Wedgwood family name does not have a second "e" in its spelling.

Set on 2 private acres of a park-like setting with flower-lined brick walkways leading to two gazebos and a hammock, yet just steps from New Hope's historic and vibrant village and the walking bridge to Lambertville and nearby Princeton, New Jersey.

The 1870 Wedgwood Inn of New Hope

“April 30th marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the day Dinie Silnutzer and Carl Glassman (pictured) opened the Wedgwood Inn, their bed-and-breakfast in New Hope, PA. At the time, they were newlyweds seeking a lifestyle change. Now, after adding to their domain the Umpleby House and the Aaron Burr House, their dreams have been realized. “Innkeeping is as good as we thought it would be, and more.” Dinie says. Carl notes that overnight guests have come from thirty-five countries and all fifty states, and now many of them are the offspring of early clientele, arriving with their own children. Carl and Dinie are celebrating their first quarter century by selecting one lucky couple each month to receive a two-night gift certificate and by renovating the Victorian gazebo that graces the two-acre property, which is just a stroll away from downtown. Having already added Wi-fi and several double Jacuzzis to the charm of antiques, fresh flowers, oriental rugs, local art, and breakfast on the dining porch, alfresco or in bed, Carl and Dinie will surely continue to delight their guests for another quarter century."

Guest Comments on Celebrating Our 25th!.

"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'.
Anyway, time has passed and we are finally coming back.

"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!"

1870 Wedgwood Inn of New Hope - GuestsWhen 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.
