Been coming here for 15 years and love the relaxation this inn provides. This owner provides a wonderful breakfast and greets you with a welcoming conversation. Breakfast is served in the dining room with small intimate tables instead of a family style table, which makes it cozy and relaxed. The view is wonderful and makes it one of the best... More

This cozy Inn sits right on the water and exceeded our expecations in every way. The view can't be matched and the room was cozy, comfortable and VERY quiet. No noise whatsovever. The breakfast that is included is by far the best I've had in ages. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I were married at the 1740 House on September 21st, 2013. We had trouble finding a place willing to host our small wedding (25 people) who were willing to do everything the way we wanted it. 1740 House exceeded our expectations, and it was very affordable! We told Wendy what we wanted, and she made sure it... More

Thank you for the kind words and compliments. Trish and the housekeeping team truly appreciate that their efforts to have a clean inn are acknowledge.
