Ingrid Hopkins

Owner

I am Ingrid Hopkins, and I have created The Covered Bridge Inn on my family's Dairy Farm. I will be the 5th generation Hopkins to call the farm my home.

I grew up on the farm and I was very active with 4-H and an avid equestrian. I graduated from Delaware Valley College with degrees in Animal Science and Veterinary Technology. I was a Registered Veterinary Nurse for 20 years before returning to the farm to pursue business ownership.  I knew that I was capable of an epic renovation, and the historic buildings on the farm were longing for a new purpose. So with years of hard work, determination, and one incredible family, The Covered Bridge Inn is the astonishing result.

Come join our bucolic perfection and experience the ultimate in a repurposed Sussex County landmark. 

When I'm not at the barn working on dreamy farm weddings, you'll find me on the bike trail or teaching a cycling class.

Jonathan Clark

Groundskeeper

Jonathan is our trusted and absolutely irreplaceable groundskeeper. He has been keeping this place looking farmtastic since we opened. He is hardworking and a busy father of 4. Although he is a man of few words, he takes great pride in his work, and it shows.  When he's not here keeping things green and clean for every beautiful guest and event, he spends his spare time wih his family or fishing at the beach.
