My husband and I just stayed overnight for a friends wedding. Great service and a wonderful breakfast. The beautiful spacious room had a great view overlooking the water. Having your own deck with chairs was a plus. It is really worth staying here!

Your quintessential riverside B&B on the Delaware, 1740 House is a great stay just north of nearby New Hope. On-site staff are extraordinarily hospitable, happily offering to light a fire pit for us on the outdoor patio during happy hour when they serve light appetizers and flat-bread pizzas. Coupled with a fully stocked bar and sizable rooms, we settled in...

This is a wonderful spot for relaxing and enjoying the countryside. Room was immaculate, very well appointed and nicely decorated. We stayed in #16, which had a wonderful view of the Deleware River from the deck (we saw a bald-eagle zooming up river!) and even though the road outside can be busy, was surprisingly quiet. Bed was super-comfy, top-notch linens...
