FRONTLINE: Great Escape


Lambertville House
32 Bridge St.
Lambertville, N.J.
(609) 397-0200, lambertvillehouse.com

Cost: In fall, rooms run $210-$235 weekdays, $290-$332 weekends.

Drive time: A little over an hour.

The scoop: There’s no better place to people-watch in “New Jersey’s Antiques Capital” than from the front porch of this cozy former-stagecoach-stop-turned-boutique-hotel built in 1812. Between bites of Belgian waffle in the morning and sips of a signature martini from the property’s Left Bank Libations later on, you can spend the day browsing among the art galleries and other one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques.

Amenities: Just about every room has a whirlpool tub (some are big enough for two), a gas fireplace and a private balcony.

Don’t miss: A bike ride along the 30-mile Delaware & Raritan Canal Path. New Hope Cyclery (215-862-6888, newhopecyclery.com) will deliver a rental right to your door ($24/half day, $35/full day).
