New Hope's 1833 Umpleby House Bed and Breakfast Inn is a Classic Revival plaster-over-stone manor house, listed on the Registry of Historic Places.  The stately Bucks County home was built in 1833 by William Umpleby, New Hope's prominent mill owner.  He built the current structure on top of a pre-Revolutionary War era foundation.

​The original structure served as a headquarters house for 6 years for General Washington's Continental Army and its surrounding acreage served as a bivouac site for over 1200 men for 10 days just prior to Washington's famous crossing of the Delaware River on Christmas Eve, 1766.  That site, one mile south of New Hope, is now the internationally famous Washington Crossing State Park.

A Victorian-era addition was added to the rear in the late 1880s by owner Colonel Buckley. Your hosts, Carl and Nadine Glassman purchased and renovated Umpleby House in 1985 converting it to the 8 bedroom upscale, luxury inn it is now.  They also added the fanciful three-tier Victorian porches in 2001.
