We really enjoyed our 3 nights at this warm and friendly inn. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. This is a wonderful place to come, especially if you are a biker. The canal path on the PA side has a sense of history that is wonderful and by crossing the bridge at Frenchtown, you can pick up the rails... More

Love this place. Staff are so friendly. Breakfast is awesome. The bar and locals so welcoming. But best of all is waking up to a spectacular view from every room. Just Bliss! The area has some great walks around and great wildlife. I've been here in winter and summer and it's an ideal place for photography.

In town for a Family Wedding which was held at Holly Hedge Estate; we stayed at the 1740 house due to no rooms at HHE. The room was very comfortable and had a great view of the Delaware River; also had a deck. It was a neat location as we had never been to this part of PA before; very... More

We were made to feel very welcome the moment we walked in the door. The Innkeeper has the perfect disposition and approach for first time visitors. Our room (with a view of the Delaware River and foot bridge) was spectacular, the breakfast was very delicious and the history of the Inn was interesting. We will return!

I am late in contributing this review, but wanted to thank the innkeepers and staff for a wonderful weekend this past February.

We called last minute to see if a room was available, when we decided to stay over night after attending a wedding at Peddler's Village.

The 1740 House offers an outstanding getaway in a peaceful, serene setting, with a lot of history and character. The room was spotless and spacious, the staff is very courteous and helpful, and the breakfast is wonderful (especially the baked cinnamon french toast), but the real attraction for us was the scenery. If you want a tranquil vacation, this is... More

Thank you for your kind remarks. Your experience is similar to that of many of our guests. They plan on hiking or biking, but once they see the view from the porch or balcony, out comes the wine and the books. Please come stay with us again. It was a pleasure hosting you.

A room with a beautiful view of the Delaware River. We had cocktails at the Inn's private bar and walked down to the lower patio and sat at a table with an umbrella and great breeze. It was fun to watch all of the people floating down the river in inner tubes. Will definitely return with bikes! Small but very... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. Room 24 is a favorite of many of our guests. Great idea about the bikes, too. But if you forget, the Lumberville General Store next door to us now rents them. We look forward to hosting you again. Warm Regards, The Staff of 1740 House More
