I had seen a show about the hotel and it's history and how bootleggers in the 20's visited here regularly, so I decided to go and stay there and there were few guest when I was there so doing experiments was no problem, I caught several EVP's as well as some black shadow people but they posed no harm to...

The Black Bass (on the National Register of Historic Places - see photo) combines some of the best modern hotel amenities (e.g., walk-in steam shower, large countertops) with the charm of a Revolutionary era inn. With its location on the Delaware River, adjacent to the Delaware Canal, you can imagine travelers going from Philadelphia to Trenton stopping here for a... More

I have celebrated the last 2 Thanksgivings at the Black Bass. Very good food, friendly and capable service in a charming atmosphere. You guys do a great job, considering the volume of meals you serve. However, you hurt your brand whenever you make menu decisions that are expedient for the kitchen at the expense of your guests. Last year, I... More

We spent last weekend celebrating our anniversary at the Black Bass. Our room was lovely with a balcony overlooking the Delaware River. The bathroom had a steam room in it and my husband was over the moon. This is a very old property with great updates and charm. The bar is a great place to visit -the pewter inlay is... More

My wife and I were gifted a dinner and evening at the Black Bass Hotel in Lumberville, Pennsylvania. The setting was romantic and relaxing. The room was exquisite and the stay was lovely. We took a bed and Breakfast package which gave us a 7 course meal with a glass of wine for $80. What a great value. And it... More

A group of friends and I come here at least twice a year to enjoy the Black Bass Sunday brunch. We've always had wonderful service, excellent food and best of all, truly endless champagne. The view of the river is beautiful and we really can't say enough about the quality of this place. Although a little out of the way... More

The Black Bass Hotel sits in a beautiful location overlooking the Delaware River just a few minutes north of New Hope, Pa. It is a very old and very charming inn that reminds us that we do have a wonderful history in this country. It sits close upon the main road just as it was built three centuries ago. Although...

This was our first time at the black bass hotel, but we will return. The three best parts are the location, right on the river and right across from bull island. Second the service,everyone made us feel special and welcome, and last but not least was the excellent food and drink. Try and book a room on the river side... More

We stayed at the Black Bass Hotel, circa 1745, and had dinner at their charming dining room. Don't miss having a drink at the fabulous bar or outside on the deck overlooking the Delaware River. Trees were turning yellow, orange, and red and big leaves floated down the river. Absolutely gorgeous! Rooms are newly renovated but maintain the old world... More

Knew about the Black Bass from a previous lunch with family. After pinching pennies on many trips we decided to splurge a bit. Our overnight stay was so worth it. Having a full breakfast included in the price favorably changes the price / value calculus. Some quibbles - there is no place to park and easily unload your car -... More
