A historic hotel in New Hope recently made even more history when it was bought for $5.6 million, making it the largest commercial real estate transaction in the borough's recent history. New Jersey-based Landmark Hospitality announced yesterday that they bought the Logan Inn at 10 West Ferry St., New Hope, which predates the American Revolution and was built in 1722. It's Buck County's oldest and longest-running inn and is on the National Register of Historic Places. (In fact, the inn is said to be haunted, with various ghosts roaming its historic halls.) In a press release, Frank Cretella of Landmark Hospitality announced that the new owners are planning a bit of a makeover for Logan Inn, including two additions that will add 22 guest rooms to the inn's current 16. In addition, a pebbled courtyard will be added.
"We intend to renew its promise, restore its history and remake it as a showplace of fine dining and lodging for the hundreds of thousands of people who visit the area annually," Cretella said. Given the inn's historic nature, Landmark Hospitality will have to work closely with New Hope's Historical Architectural Review Board. Doylestown-based architect Ralph C. Fey is behind the redesign.
This will be the second New Hope hotel renovation for Landmark Hospitality. Most recently, the group re-opened the Hotel du Village .
