I was looking for a place to stay with my two sisters and my mom. We were celebrating her birthday. Upon arrival we were shown to our rooms 23 & 25. Both with king size beds and ample room. Nicely decorated and Extremely Clean! We locked the downstairs door and basically had a large suite with both our doors open.... More

Very comfortable stay right on the river. Tim was a great host and we enjoyed an overnight and a little exploring of the area. We even found three of the covered bridges. Highly recommend, but probably won't visit again from Australia.

Historic, warmth, well appointed, exceptionally accommodating staff and owner. We stayed here to attend our son's wedding and could not have been more pleased. We will come back in the summer to fully enjoy the river view and surrounding area!

Stayed with my husband overnight for Valentine's Day. We were booked in room number 7, which was a large room with a king sized bed. It was a very cold day and the heat hadn't been raised in our room prior to our arrival, however they provided us with a space heater which warmed the room quickly. We had reserved... More

We just came back from a three day stay. Historic charm and modern comfort. Friendly and attentive staff. Beautiful view over the Delaware River. On the day that the temperatures got down to 7° and overwhelm the heating system, the staff was prompt to provide excellent space heaters which quickly made things comfortable.

We first stayed at the 1740 for Thanksgiving in 1984 and have been back more than 20 times since. After the death of the founder and inn keeper, we drifted away as the property went through a number of changes and upgrades. Came back this Thanksgiving hoping to recapture the magic we had come to love. it's better than ever...... More

I chose the 1740 House as "Base Camp" for a business trip to Bucks County with two of my colleagues. Our rooms were clean, well appointed and the views of the river, walking bridge and canal were lovely.

We spent a couple of nights here while we visited for a wedding in late October. It was a gorgeous fall weekend: crisp at times, with the leaves changing color and falling. The 1740 House has an amazing location right along the Delaware River, and the bedroom doors open onto a walkway/patio area that overlooks the river. You're not really... More
