Went here last night with friends to check out a local bar and Inn that I've known about for years, but never had the pleasure to visit. It was burger night, and we had sirloin and veggie--both delicious. The staff was super friendly, we had multiple people waiting on us and their hospitality included a water pitcher with fresh lemon... More

Great place, great staff, and outstanding service. Need to update showers in baths and fix hot water flow to rooms. Breakfast is super and the view of the Delaware River is a treat. Lot of little towns nearby and countryside is worth a visit to the area. 1740 House is the place to stay.

We are returning from a 5 day stay at 1740 House. We stayed in room #5. PROS: Breakfast buffet offered a good selection of breakfast options. One morning we were the only guests staying at the inn. On that particular morning we were able to let them know what we wanted and the food was prepared for us. Staff was... More

The 1740 House met all expectations: friendly staff, very clean and comfortable room, WIFI worked well; included breakfast exceeded expectations; every room overlooks the Delaware River in the quiet town of Lumberville. Just what we were looking for....quaint small hotel with a motel feel...nothing fancy and I was not looking for anything fancy because that would not have fit the... More

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.
