We are located three miles south of the Burlington Bristol Bridge. Call any time and we will vector you in!

Attractions:

  • Other attractions in this area include the 300 year old capital of West Jersey, known as Burlington City, NJ. There are seven restored homes available for daily tours through the Historic Society in town. The five star French restaurant called Café Gallery sits on Burlington’s water front, but if more casual dining is needed Curtin Hope Marina has a “deck dining area” (in season) on the Delaware River.

Restaurants:

  • Dunk’s Ferry Inn @ Whitebriar is located within a block of a great Chinese Restaurant (take out can be brought back to the Inn) and the best pizza and meals in town at Cindy’s Deli Pizza Shop, just down the street a few blocks (they deliver).
  • The Green Cafe @ Whitebriar - Now open! Call in your order and pick up at our "Old Bank" drive in window. We specialize in “going green” and “organic” foods, home made by the chef/owners of Whitebriar. It is an expansion of the Gift Shop/Antique Store, visitor’s center, and welcome area in a homey setting. We offer anything from a cup of tea to a full dinner of soups, salads, quiche on a bed of fancy greens, prize winning coffee cake and other organic delights. Homemade jams, jellies, dried organic herbs, and snacks are available from 7am-7pm daily.

Rent your kayaks, paddles, PFD’s here at Whitebriar, and our truck will transport you (to and fro) three blocks to the foot of Cooper Street, where you can practice in the “Olde Coal Wharf Cove”, before setting your bow to explore the Historic Homes along the Riverbank, normally not viewed from public roads.
