Having formerly grown up in the nearby area i have a special affinity for the old stone buildings dotting the PA landscape. The many inns in the area dating back to the 18th and 19th century are so essential to it's history but sadly many have not been maintained or even worse have been leveled to make room for some new venture. I was excited to hear a couple years back that "the Bass" was in new owners hands and they were intent on restoring it.
Our visit was fabulous. Although we only stayed one night and did not dine there, we almost couldn't find a spot to park for all the diners in the restaurant and on the deck overlooking the quiet Delaware.
We stayed in the Raven Rock Suite which has a wonderful old bed that we were told was a double bed salvaged from the original and then painstakingly reworked into a king. The room had a large bathroom witha glass walled steam shower and a window facing the river. The gem of the room was certainly the deck which put you in a great place to sit and watch the river and the occasional jogger making their way across one of the few footbridges which cross to the NJ side.
