We have a special fondness for the 1740 House, going back to when the original owner, Harry, presided. The inn is very well maintained, the innkeepers Richard and Tammy are more than gracious, and the entire staff is friendly and helpful. The site is beautiful and every room faces the Delaware. Dinner at the Black Bass next door is consistently...

Beautiful setting, friendly reception BUT the sofa in the room was more comfortable than the bed and there's a 1-hour opportunity for breakfast. I had to pay a 50% non-refundable deposit and I specifically requested a soft bed. If the person to whom I spoke had said that all of our beds are "firm", I would have known to look...

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...
