It is said that at this 1745 historic inn, George Washington was once turned away by the loyal Tory innkeeper. Therefore, this hotel proudly states “George Washington did NOT sleep here!” A ghostly pool of blood appears on the floor in the tavern, a remnant from the time when early innkeeper Old Hans was stabbed to death in a brawl. Also, a ghostly woman in white has been seen in a guest room holding a pearl-handled revolver.

  1. I’ve had dinner here several times- the food is good though the drinks are over priced priced but there is no suggestino of a haunting here. behind the ancient frontage the place is completely modrn with glass walls lookingo ut to the delaware river. I have spent a lot of time in the bar and there is not even a story about blood stains.

  2. At a party over the weekend I mentioned the ghost story to a local historian who said it’s the latest thing in Bucks county. all the taverns are suddenly discovering ‘lost’ haunted stories, it’s almost like it’s required.

  3. Last November I spent the night in one of the rooms upstairs. Our room was quaint and bright and I never thought about the possibility of a resident ghost. During the night, I was awakened by the feeling of a hand grabbing my foot through the bed covers. I sat up expecting to see someone standing at the end of the bed, but there was no one there. I did not think this was a dream and I had a hard time getting back to sleep, thinking that it might happen again. Fortunately, it did not happen again and I finally was able to fall back asleep. The inn is lovely and I will be definitely be visiting there again.
