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. Scott was kind enough to let us know that we were next on the list if there were any cancellations; and lucky for us there was. Excellent customer service all the way around from the...

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...

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...

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

If you are looking for a one or two day retreat in Bucks County, look no further. My wife and I booked a room at the 1740 House and cannot wait to return in the Fall.

Though only a 35 minute drive away from home, staying at 1740 House felt like a grand vacation far far away from the everyday hustle and bustle. The innkeepers and all their staff were wonderful.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. Naturally, we're very pleased that you did. People come here with plans to hike, bike, or shop.
