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

Did I say great, yet??? My wife and 'i have stayed at many a B&B on the east and this has been our best experience ever.

Just a few short miles from historic New Hope nestled along the banks of the Delaware river lies one of the most romantic bed and breakfast inns I have ever visited. Each room has its own special character, all of which overlook the scenic river front. Richard the inn keeper and his wife make certain that you feel like a... More

We stayed here for a wedding which was at the "sister place" called Holly Hedge.

My husband and I traveled to the Doylestown area for our 10 year anniversary. We wanted to stay somewhere more authentic than a regular hotel but all the B & B's in Doylestown were booked.

Thank You for the many compliments you shared on your posting. Most bed and breakfast do not operate like a chain hotel with 24 hour attendant at the reception area.

We had not been to the 1740 House for quite a few years, but the property is still wonderful and the new innkeepers are most helpful. All the rooms face the river -- we like the upstairs view --and there are plenty of outdoor/indoor places to relax. Our room was spacious and tasteful. The bar, which operates like a club... More

I stayed at the 1740 house over the weekend because I had a crawfish party to go to that was close by. I'm not from the area so I needed to spend the night. The innkeeper greeted me when I came in and she showed me my room and gave me a great tour. She really made me feel welcome.... More

We have a special fondness for the 1740 House, going back to when the original owner, Harry, presided. The inn is very well maintained, the innkeepers Richard and Tammy are more than gracious, and the entire staff is friendly and helpful. The site is beautiful and every room faces the Delaware.
