Favorite dining spots on the Delaware reopen

Favorite local spots in New Hope are now open, just in time for summer! Ghost Light Inn, the boutique hotel on the Delaware River at 50 S. Main St., has reopened.
And the Carriage House of New Hope, a three-bedroom historic inn at 8 E. Mechanic St., and Ferry Market, the gourmet artisanal market at 32 S. Main Street, are all making a comeback.
Owners Sherri and Kevin Daugherty are thrilled to reinvigorate the businesses they have developed. Sherri Daugherty said, “We are very happy to have our doors back open so our staff can do what they do best and continue to make great memories for our customers.”
The pet-friendly inns are open. Riverside rooms feature Juliet balconies, which allow guests to relish panoramic vistas of the Delaware River in peaceful privacy. The Daughertys have purchased 60 additional red Adirondack chairs and lined them up, with sufficient distancing, along the breathtaking riverwalk for guests and visitors to enjoy the panoramic views of the River.
The dining room and patio at Stella are open Wednesday through Sunday from 4 to 10 p.m. Takeout options are also available. With culinary dishes prepared by in-house Chef Michael O’Hallaran and craft cocktails by Bar Manager Jamie Shaw, there is an exciting summer menu that focuses on nearby farms and other community partners.
O’Hallaran said, “It is our honor to support farmers and vendors who supply much of the food for our dishes. It’s a beautiful thing when neighbors can help each other.”
