Our room overlooking the river, the quiet walks along the canal, and friendly and welcoming staff, and the amazing breakfasts helped make our getaway ideal. Thanks, everyone at 1740 House. It was 100% super.

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. Our first night we stayed in Rm23, which is a very nice room with a great balcony to sit on and watch the lazy river....

It was fun for the whole staff to surprise you two with the upgrade to our Grand Suite. The innkeepers and the housekeepers conspired together to make that change.

We were there for only one night but it was a time to remember. Our room was spacious and lovely. The view from our balcony was spectacular and the staff could not have been more courteous, helpful and friendly. Every one went over and above expectations to make us feel very special. Breakfast was amazing! Hope to be back again...

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. Then they see the view from their room and will sometimes say, "Forget it. Just send up something cold to drink and we'll watch the river roll by." Room 23 is certainly...

We booked 1740 Inn for a friend's wedding this past weekend and it was perfect from beginning to end. Pricing was extremely reasonable and I received an email the week of our stay, informing us of some local detours. We arrived about an hour after check-in and were greeted by the other wedding guests and the innkeepers with nothing but...

There's no point in being in the hospitality business without being thrilled by what you have said about your stay. It was printed out at both HollyHedge and the 1740 House and shared with the staff.

It was a last minute decision for us to head up to Pennsylvania. Our only problem was getting a return phone call to make the reservation. They were very apologetic about taking a day to return the call. The room was large and the patio provided a nice view of the river. It was quiet enough to hear the water...

My girlfriend and I woke up to beautiful views of the Delaware. The breakfast was amazing! Room 16 is the best! My dad was getting married at the black bass hotel and it was a 3min walk to the hotel. Parking was great and free. Lumberville is a quaint little town!
