1740 House
Ranked #1 of 2 Lumberville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Been coming here for 15 years and love the relaxation this inn provides. This owner provides a wonderful breakfast and greets you with a welcoming conversation. Breakfast is served in the dining room with small intimate tables instead of a family style table, which makes it cozy and relaxed. The view is wonderful and makes it one of the best places to stay in the area. My only regret is the loss of the pool in the summer months.

Our group, 6 couples, had a wonderful time in Lumberville. The 1740 House was charming and the innkeeper and his wife were wonderful to us. Actually everyone we met was great. Trish the bartender was very nice . They don't have a restaurant, but cooked us amazing breakfasts and the bar had food that was excellent. The night we arrived the bar was full with a group watching football, but we felt right at home. The view from every room was amazing. The inn sits right on the Delaware river. We had snow too which made it feel so cozy. Our room had a fireplace which was nice. The great room also had a large fireplace and wonderful leather furniture. The bright and sunny breakfast room was great in the mornings. You have to go outside and back in to get to the great room and breakfast area, but that was no problem. I'd like to go back when its warmer so we could enjoy the outdoor space. All in all it was a very enjoyable New Years Eve. Oh we had dinner at the Black Bass Hotel 1/8 of a mile up the road. It was excellent.

Room Tip: Take a room on the upper floors. We had an end on the bottom floor which had a little patio, but it...

Thank you for sharing your experience at the 1740 House. Your group was wonderful to service over New Years Eve period. Be sure to come back when the weather is warmer and experience sitting out in the morning for breakfast and then again with a cocktail in the evening.

This cozy Inn sits right on the water and exceeded our expecations in every way. The view can't be matched and the room was cozy, comfortable and VERY quiet. No noise whatsovever. The breakfast that is included is by far the best I've had in ages. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

The best part of my job is to share the positive post of our guest with the staff. The inn itself is in a terrific location and the naturally beautiful surroundings add to making a visit to the 1740 House wonderful. I will be sure to let Tammy know you liked the breakfast and tell the rest of the staff that we exceeded your expectations.

My husband and I were married at the 1740 House on September 21st, 2013. We had trouble finding a place willing to host our small wedding (25 people) who were willing to do everything the way we wanted it. 1740 House exceeded our expectations, and it was very affordable! We told Wendy what we wanted, and she made sure it was done perfectly! The food was amazing, as well!

The rooms are beautiful, all with a nice view of the river. The only reason I'm giving four stars is because the bathrooms could use a little updating. I thougth the bed was comfy, however my husband had trouble with it. I also felt that things seemed a bit unorganized when we were booking rooms (like I was told all of the rooms were available when we booked the date, but when I called 4 days later to book our room, they said only there were only a couple of available rooms left...yet my entire family eventually got rooms??) Other than that, it was a wonderful stay and I wouldn't mind coming back for a romantic weekend!

Room Tip: We stayed in North room 18 which was beautiful. My husband used room 16 to get ready in on our wedd...

Thank You for selecting the 1740 House for your Wedding location. Wendy, the Events Manager does an exceptional job listening and providing what each and every bride wants on that special day. Many newlywed couples come back for their first year anniversary but you don't have to wait a year to come and visit again.

This is a wonderful place to stay! Stayed there for our daughter's wedding. The rehearsal dinner was there & it was delicious! All the employees were wonderful! I can not say enough
about how kind they all were. A special thank you to Patricia and the librarian bartender!
Made the evening even more special for all of us. Breakfasts were soo delicious also and everything ran like clockwork. Our room was perfect! we had plenty of room for the girls to get their hair done and just hang out! A special thank you to whoever came and cleaned our room after we left for the wedding, it was a mess! so thank you again. Richard & Kim were just amazing! Nothing you asked them to do was a bother. Would recommend this to anyone! The views and location just gorgeous! This is a great getaway too. Look forward to coming back sometime for relaxation.

Thank You for posting about your visit to the 1740 House. Sharing TripAdvisor posts with the staff is always exciting. Patricia, Debbie (the bartender) and Kim loved that they were mentioned and I made sure to let Tay, Miriam and Emily know their efforts of attending to the room while everyone was at the wedding was appreciated.

The 1740 House is a sister property of Holly Hodge estate, where my niece was married on Aug 30, 2013. My bff and I had taken a ride to check it out ahead of time, and we both fell in love with it right away, so I knew my family was in for a delightful evening. We booked the largest available suite, #6, to accomodate three of us. We could have easily had several more people! The panaramic views of the Delaware are spectacular. The furnishings were teriffic; buttery soft leather sofa and love seat, a huge king size bed, seating arrangements comfortably placed, access to the balcony......and all this on top of a fabulous breakfast buffet. Richard is the sweetest man; even loaning cufflinks to my son-in-law for the wedding! Friendly staff, great location, beautiful rooms.....highly recommended!!

This is a wonderful B&B! We stayed overnight for a wedding and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean and had a great view. They offered shuttle service to and from the wedding. My husband even forgot his cuff links for the wedding and the innkeeper lent him his for the night. They really went above and beyond for us. This is a great place to stay!

Thank you for the kind words and compliments. Trish and the housekeeping team truly appreciate that their efforts to have a clean inn are acknowledge. The inn life does not extend the need for cuff links too many times so I enjoy when I can assist someone with a lending hand.

Please think of us the next time you just want to get way!!!!
