My husband and I just stayed overnight for a friends wedding. Great service and a wonderful breakfast. The beautiful spacious room had a great view overlooking the water. Having your own deck with chairs was a plus. It is really worth staying here!

I took my wife for her Birthday as a surprise. They put flowers and a bottle of champagne in the room! There was a cool balcony overlooking the Del River. The rooms were old-looking and superclean. The breakfast was awesome! Richard was great and professional! They also recommended the restaurant: Anton's at the Swann in Lambertville,Nj and had a surprise... More

The rustic charm of the 1740 House creates a warm sense of welcoming, coupled with excellent service- making any trip to the area most memorable and enjoyable! The view from the balcony was amazing! The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. The service of the innkeeper was fantastic and the homemade breakfast was DELICIOUS! We were only in... More

Your quintessential riverside B&B on the Delaware, 1740 House is a great stay just north of nearby New Hope. On-site staff are extraordinarily hospitable, happily offering to light a fire pit for us on the outdoor patio during happy hour when they serve light appetizers and flat-bread pizzas. Coupled with a fully stocked bar and sizable rooms, we settled in... More

Very comfortable. Breakfast was very good and it was my favorite part about staying here. Stayed here for a wedding weekend. Great view of the river. Very clean. My room was cleaned while I was at breakfast and I didn't have to worry about leaving my things out. Hosts are very friendly.

My wife and I stayed here, along with a number of family members, for my daughter's wedding down the road at BB Inn. Richard the owner was incredibly accommodating, allowing me to hold rooms for my family right up to the last minute. The innkeepers really did everything to make us feel "at home". We loved our room (number 6),... More

Dear MS2020, Thank you for the great compliments regarding your stay at the 1740 House. Many guest believe I own the inn. The inn is owned by three local professionals that love the 1740 House and are wonderful to work for.

This is a wonderful spot for relaxing and enjoying the countryside. Room was immaculate, very well appointed and nicely decorated. We stayed in #16, which had a wonderful view of the Deleware River from the deck (we saw a bald-eagle zooming up river!) and even though the road outside can be busy, was surprisingly quiet. Bed was super-comfy, top-notch linens... More

Very disappointed! Smelled when we checked in and I feel like all of our clothes now smell. The scent was overpowering. The bedding was old. Carpet was stale too. Wall paper was peeling. Bath sink had a crack in the stopper and pipes were clogged. To top off the weekend, we came back from breakfast and poop was bubbling over... More

I live locally and booked a room for relatives who were visiting from out of town. Reservations were speedy and friendly. My sister and her hubby were extremely happy with the room. It was charmingly decorated, roomy, and immaculate. The a/c worked great on a hot and humid day. They made good use of the terrace, and while enjoying the... More
