Established in 1727 as an extension of the Ferry Tavern, this inn once accommodated passengers riding the ferry to Lambertville. George Washington is said to have stayed here at least five times—and one can only imagine what he would think of the crowds of shoppers who stroll past the inn, which is now smack dab in the busiest part of town. Rooms have original and reproduction Colonial and Victorian furnishings and canopy beds; some have river views. The friendly restaurant ($$$$) serves brunch on weekends, lunch, dinner, and a popular all-day tavern menu. The beer garden is a seasonal outdoor bar.
