If you are expecting a child and live within a few hour’s drive of Buck’s County PA, there is no better place to savor your Babymoon than the Inn at Bowman’s Hill.
Besides the obvious – being catered to in what amounts to a rich uncle’s backcountry estate for couple of days – you will find one unique and comforting amenity.
You can arrange for a professional pre-natal massage, performed by a therapist from a local doctor’s office, who arrives at your guest room with her own massage bed and oils for an hour long sublime and pain-eliminating rubdown. Heaven.
A Babymoon is but once special reason to come here. There are hundreds more.
A Four Diamond property that excels in spoiling guests, it’s no surprise that even locals book a room or suite here.
Many visitors just hang around to Zen out by the calming landscaped pool. Some bring bikes to cycle the 18 miles down the New Hope Canal Path, across the Lambertville Bridge to Washington Crossing and back to the inn.
Out of town, on an undulating road of farms and mansions, this Inn is a serene escape in every sense. (See this Getaway Mavens post on things to do in Bucks County for what to do nearby.)
And, Inn at Bowman’s Hill joins this roster of 18 Top Romantic Getaways in Pennsylvania. You might just get some more romantic getaway ideas.
First Impressions of the Inn at Bowman’s Hill
“It’s a defining moment when people come through the gates of our property,” says the earnest owner/innkeeper, Mike Amery. “It’s like entering another world.”
Amery transformed his home, which borders the 134-acre Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve, into an opulent four-room and four-suite inn. Here, he entices his guests to “Relax, Celebrate, Connect, and Make Memories.”
The 5-acre gated property is exquisite, with plantings, flowering trees, and a heavenly heated pool.
Guests first walk into what appears to be a cozy fire-lit (in winter) Colonial Tavern where Amery greets guests before showing them to their rooms or suites.
He’s got connections with everyone in town it seems. So if you’d like a table at one of the area’s best restaurants, Amery can oftentimes make it happen. He’s got a big heart and really, really wants to make your stay as wonderful as possible.
To that end, Mike will keep you company or leave you alone – just the right balance of effusive service and privacy one would expect from an inn of this caliber.
Rooms and Suites
The Inn’s four rooms are stunning and elegant. The decor tends toward traditional European-Countryside. Several rooms feature double French doors that open onto small decks.
Each chamber is stocked with complimentary snacks, cold water bottles, and a Keurig coffee maker. Not a price list in sight.
All posh suites – decorated in early Lord and Lady of the Manor – are larger than most NY City apartments. Enormous marble bathrooms sport double and triple glass rain showers, golden fixtures, and Jacuzzi baths.
The Tower Suite features sponged walls, a cathedral ceiling in a sitting room, two flat screen tv, and upstairs, high-end linens on a fine king featherbed.
The handsome George Washington Suite is the type of room to which men might retreat to light up a stogie or two.
Newlyweds and hopeless romantics should book the stunning Penthouse Suite – another multi-level room with a very unique feature in the bathroom.
Above the corner jetted tub is a trompe l’oeil twinkling-star night sky. It’s the perfect place to indulge in champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries.
Inn at Bowman’s Hill Breakfast and Snacks
In-house chef and right-hand man, Anastacio Olivera, whips up a three-course gourmet breakfast each morning. You can savor Olivera’s culinary creations en suite, in the solarium, on one of several outside patios, or in the “tavern” room.
I was impressed by his crispy, lightly stuffed French Toast, which I enjoyed with a fresh fruit cup and a tall glass of blueberry-pomegranate juice in front of a real wood-burning fireplace. Complementary bags of chips and crackers and bottles of water are available round the clock.
Inn at Bowman’s Hill Amenities
On hot summer days, you may want to just lounge by the pool outfitted with a blessed misting system, and, when the cravings strike, ask Mike or Anastacio for ice cream (with or without pickles).
Amery also has an agreement with several professional massage therapists (from a local doctor’s office) who will come to your room with a comfy massage table (or two for a couple’s massage) and work the kinks out of your aching muscles.
Some specialize in prenatal massage, rendering a weekend at the Inn at Bowman’s Hill the perfect Babymoon.
