Booking Lodging: Air BnB
Airbnb has some options that are by far the closest lodging to the firehouse, as well as some good choices in downtown New Hope.
Harmony Hill Farm or The Garden Apartment - Excellent shared options for 3-4 students right in New Hope. Discounts are available for each of these options for WRT students on WFRs (staying 9 nights or more). Email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire.
1850 Cottage - Good option for 2-4 students. Not in town, but very close to the classroom.
The Inn at Shangri-La - A good option for a single student, just across the bridge in New Jersey. At $48 per night, the price is tough to beat. Did we mention there’s a pool?
Washington Crossing State Park (NJ) - Public group campsites. Sharing one of these could be a very economical option.
Booking Lodging: Other Options
If Air BnB isn't your style, there's a plethora of affordable options near Princeton, NJ, just 20 minutes from our classroom. The Howard Johnsons and Red Roof Inn both advertise rooms on line for as low as $74 per night.
A package that includes shared lodging is available on a first come, first serve basis for four students.
For just $55/night close to downtown New Hope with easy access to restaurants, breweries, art galleries, books stores, live music and other night life, this deal is hard to beat.
For our May 2019 WFR, lodging will run from Friday night, May 17th until Saturday night, May 25th.
