Are you looking for a cozy and welcoming place to stay while traversing the 165 mile D&L trail? Or perhaps a home base to explore New Hope and the surrounding Delaware Canal region? Don’t leave the Fox and Hound Bed & Breakfast out of your search!  

The Fox and Hound is an award winning B&B that offers a plethora of room options for spouses, families, and bicyclists alike. We caught up with the owner, Lisa Menz, to learn more about what the Fox and Hound has to offer. Lisa said at the heart it is three main things: hospitality, heritage, and rejuvenation. 


The Fox and Hound B&B provides a complimentary hot gourmet breakfast. According to the word on the street, it’s pretty darn good. They source as many ingredients as possible from local farmers and their backyard garden. Seasonal, fresh, and local is the name of the game. A few crowd favorites are the French Toast Soufflé with Baked Peaches and the Harvest Frittata.  

Lisa and her Husband Michael are also there to welcome their guests. They’re happy to orient them to the house and surrounding area. As a local, she can direct you to all the cool things to do nearby. “We treat every guest special”, says Lisa. And it is certainly apparent!

While the Fox and Hound has been in steady B&B use for the past 15 years, the grounds themselves date back hundreds of years. Adjacent to the Victorian house is a barn with intact stone structures that date back to the 1760s. George Washington is said to have spent a night there en route to his famous crossing of the Delaware. You can certainly feel the history while driving (or cycling) up to the entrance, and even more so when entering the various themed rooms.  



No matter what’s going on outside, when you walk in the Fox and Hound there is a deep sense of peace and quiet. The antique, yet cozy and elegant feel of the place invites you to relax and decompress. There is also a gazebo and rooftop to unwind with friends and loved ones.

As a D&L Trail Friendly Business, the Fox and Hound offers bike racks, garage storage, and insider knowledge of trails.. They pride themselves in providing a welcoming environment and a hot meal to get you going with your day! Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fox and Hound has made many efforts to ensure the safety of its guests. They include limiting their number of guests, a minimum of 24 hours between each stay, consistent full-room cleanings, room-service breakfast, and distance orienting.
