Interaction with Guests
You have the entire house to yourself with a lockbox to let you in. You will have complete privacy.
Lambertville is a cute little town with loads of restaurants, galleries, shops and a few lovely bars. Our favorite spots for restaurants are El Tule, Ota-ya, Ricks...too many to list. In New Hope there is the great youth run pre fixe restaurant, Cafe Blue Moose.
For bars hit the Boathouse or the Swan for cozy fireside cocktails. The Swan also serves food in the bar with a great offering of salads, burgers and pizzas. Love the mashed potato pizza and the beet salad.
Our favorite thing to do is hit The Golden Nugget flea market 1.5 miles down the road. It's open year round every Wed, Sat and Sun from dawn to about 2 or so. People start packing up after the big waves of people are done so get there early! If you venture down the road a bit further towards Washington Crossing, It's Nuts! is a roadside restaurant serving up some sick fried chicken and tomato pie.
There are also many lovely shops in town especially America Antiques right down the street.
The best way to get around Lambertville is on foot. You can walk the whole town and cross the bridge to New Hope very easily. If you don't plan on driving to neighboring towns you can leave your car behind and take the Trans Bridge Line. It leaves directly from Port Authority. There is also a taxi service that is a bit spotty but does come through most of the time when you need it.
Other Things to Note

We ask that guests treat our home like they would their own house. Our house is filled with antiques that you are welcome to explore with care. Please do not park in the gas station next door as it is not our property.
If you would like to have a dinner or cocktail party with friends that is totally fine but no large parties are allowed.
**** If you are going to use the umbrella on the roof please be sure to close it when not in use. Do not lave it open overnight or unattended. It can get quite windy on the roof.
We are small business owners and love antiques, art and kitties :) Hook and Ladder Vintage is what we do. Find us at the Brooklyn Flea and Jessy Lee's Antiques in Lambertville.
