Where A Dream and
A River Meet...

Belle Reve Bed and Breakfast

Innkeepers, Shirley and Thomas Creo, welcome you.

Belle Reve, the words mean "beautiful dream" and that is our wish for you.  Come stay awhile and relax in this tranquil setting.  Belle Reve, our 1843 Greek Revival farmhouse, is picturesquely situated on the west bank of the Delaware River in the village of Riverton, Pennsylvania.  Whether you are relaxing in our riverfront gazebo or discovering nearby Belvidere, NJ, this charming historical private residence has been lovingly restored to offer you a gracious retreat to a simpler time.  You can spend the night in one of our riverview bedrooms or host a special family or business function in one of our spacious parlors or gardens. 

Our History

Active Member of
Professional Association of Innkeepers International

Belle Reve was built in 1843 by John Ludwig Beck for his future bride, Mary.  Her family gave them $10,000 to build this 6,000 sq. ft., 16 room home on the banks of the Delaware River at the foot of the Belvidere bridge.  The inn was restored/remodeled in 1985.  

Walk across the bridge (or take your bicycle across) and discover historic Belvidere.  Pretty as a picture postcard, this tiny town is a serene and peaceful blend of finely maintained Colonial and Victorian mansions on well kept, tree lined streets.

There is so much to do in this area.  We've put together a partial list of things to do and see, with links to Web sites where we found them - to help you plan your trip.  Additionally, we will be glad to give suggestions, directions and available brochures while you are here.  For example, you might want to walk the beautiful public hiking trail that is just a short walking distance from Belle Reve Bed and Breakfast.  The variety of activities is tremendous, too.  Even New York City is less than 1 1/2 hours drive from here - an easy day trip.  Review our  "Directions / Area Attractions" page for more information on what is available in the area from rafting and canoeing to snow skiing to shopping, it's all here and more.
