A quiet getaway at a beautiful Inn

4.8 on October 23, 2010

The Inn surpassed my expectations first with its location on the Delaware. Each room has a private area to sit and enjoy the river, former canal and towpath from provided seating. The rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed and quiet. Housekeeping was impeccable. Breakfast was hearty for a continental meal and the tavern hours were friendly and cozy. The innkeeper Holly and her assistant Judy attended to your every need personally. Definitely a top B&B experience.


Many Happy Returns!

4.4 on October 06, 2010

We decided on a last minute overnight stay at our favorite B&B, the 1740 House. As always, as soon as we parked our car & walked inside, all of our stress from the day seemed to disappear! The new innkeeper, Holly, is MAGNIFICANT!! She is friendly, personable, and very knowledgable about the inn itself & all the surrounding towns. We can't wait to visit Holly & Ocho again!!


Easy Drive from NYC

We absolutely loved our stay at The 1740 House. The location is amazing and the views are incredible! The room was spotless. Loved the decor. We highly recommend a visit.


Phenomenal Choice in Bucks County

4.6 on August 23, 2010

1740 House is Gem.....I stayed in Room 21 - one of the cheaper rooms, and it was perfect....overlooking the Delaware. There is a great bike/walk/jogging trail that runs for miles 100 steps away from the hotel. Swimming is available in their pool (which was very enjoyable), as well as a swimming outlet in the Delaware a 5 minute walk away. Breakfast was average in my opinion - Nothing elaborate; always fresh coffee and OJ available, cozy room, good service. I would come back here in a Pennsylvania Minute.


Lovely location.

Great spot for accessing river and taking walks on either side. I should send them my breakfast egg casserole recipe and make ahead French toast recipe. Both were too dry, but the coffee was delicious.


Nice Quiet Inn

3.0 on August 08, 2010

Wife and I enjoyed our 2 night stay at the 1740 House. The well appointed room was kept nicely by Debbie and staff. The Inn is a nice quiet spot yet there are a lot of things to do in the area. We rode bikes on both sides of the river, visited New Hope, Rices Market, and Peddlers Village. We will return.


A great place to relax

4.0 on August 03, 2010

We just spent 2 great days at the 1740 House. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax, this is it. The pool was a great, refreshing spot. We were within easy walking distance to the tow path - a great place to hike. Here they are putting water back in the canal, which should be an interesting sight. It was great in the early evening to sit on the balcony and watch people walking and bike riding the path. Breakfast was simple, but hearty. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing stay.

We met many interesting people while sipping wine by the pool. The view and the atmosphere of the 1740 House is very relaxing. Very peaceful. No kids running around. A great adult getaway. Great place to relax. Not the most modern. Didn't even have a phone in our room? A bit rustic.


An absolutely amazing place to stay!

4.6 on June 28, 2010

We recently spent one night at the 1740 House and we did not want to leave! The view and the pool are spectacular, the service was outstanding, breakfast was homemade, hot and delicious. After a day kayaking on the river, it was so pleasant to pull up to the 1740 house and be treated so nicely. Our room was beautiful and the patio in the back overlooking the river was lovely. We spent the night in New Hope and then had a wonderful midnight swim (the pool never really closes!) We awoke to a delicious homemade country breakfast and nice strong coffee. We spent the next day by the pool before we regrettably had to head home. We will definitely visit the inn again!
