Perched high on the banks of the scenic Delaware River, Chestnut Hill and its companion all-suite, Country Cottage, are beautifully preserved, Victorian-era lodgings

We welcome you to our home, located in the small town of Milford, New Jersey, where you'll experience the charm and grace of a century past.

Chestnut Hill was built in 1860 by Wilson Thomas for his bride Lizzie. We have the privilege of being only the third family to live here. The parlor, drawing room, and dining room have the strong sense of a more gentle era.

Six upstairs guest rooms and large, immaculately maintained social rooms downstairs feature high walls papered in wine-red and moss-green period patterns. Original photos and paintings chronicle Chestnut Hill's history and that of the town. The rooms hold furniture and dress from the time when the first two families owned the home. Iron mannequins in the drawing and living rooms model Victorian clothing, which Linda found in trunks belonging to the first owners when she and Rob bought the home eighteen years ago.  Chestnut Hill allows guests a look back at Victorian-era Milford

Though we are often featured as a romantic getaway, Chestnut Hill continues to offer convenient lodging for the business traveler.

All of our rooms have excellent mattresses topped with feather beds.

Classic video library and books on tape for free use by our guests.
Minimum two night stay on the weekend.
We are a non-smoking inn.

The 1860 inn exudes a warmth and a hominess that belie the splendor of its traditional Victorian decor. A gentle breeze is drifting across the river that flows past
the front lawn

Everyone becomes part of an extended family the minute they step on to the huge wraparound veranda. Comfortable, country rockers are situated for pleasant conversation and relaxing views of the Delaware River. Watch a photo opportunity for a book or wander into a cozy sitting room. In the formal dining room, teeny lights sparkle from beautiful plants. The long candle-lit table and overall Victorian decor adds to the opulence of the incomparable breakfasts.

Aside from hosting a constant flow of guests, their inn has been featured on several television programs and in national magazines
