The overwhelming charm that instantly convinced you that this choice was indeed the best in the area. Scott's welcome started our stay with a quick tour and confidence that the staff would do anything to make one's stay delightful. The accommodations were very comfortable with spectacular views of the Delaware. The outdoor fire pit, warmed you as you shared tales...

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...

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. You described the biking experience very well; I'm fond of going to Frenchtown or Washington Crossing on one side of the river and returning on the other. Come back and see us soon. It was a pleasure hosting you. Warm Regards, The Staff of 1740 House

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...

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.

The 1740 House offers an outstanding getaway in a peaceful, serene setting, with a lot of history and character.

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.
