My husband and I were looking for a getaway near the Delaware Canal so that we could ride the bike trail. I spotted a deal on Travelzoo for the 1740 House and we waited for to book depending on the weather forecast. We finally chose this week to take our trip. They were most accommodating about booking our room and...

God a coupon for this place and used it - nice B&B near Peddlers Village - needs a bit of sprucing up though - not an overhaul but could use some work. The shower needs a lot of plumbing work - controls not good - and the breakfast was more of a motel style buffet than a B&B If in...

Everything about this Inn was excellent. We brought our bikes and rode the tow path trail to New Hope - about a 6 mile ride one way. This is a beautiful area, enhanced by the fantastic service, food, cleanliness and room comfort of the 1740 House. The friendly staff made us feel welcome during our entire stay. Dinner at the...

Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure hosting you. And you're right about the biking. Working here as restored an old passion of mine, and my days off are spent along the towpath. It never gets old. We look forward to your return! The Staff of 1740 House

We decided to do the covered bridge tour by car and booked a room at the 1740 House. What a great decision. We had a beautiful and spacious room right on the river with a balcony. Everyone is so nice and the breakfast was good too. We will definitely return as one night was not enough.

We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We would love to have you back, and for more than one night. Even though it's winter time now, it's always beautiful to sit and watch the river roll by. We'll make you some Hot Toddy's to take back to your room. Or sit by the fireplace. Hope to see you again soon, and...

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and took the time to tell others. Next time you're with us, take the northern route on the towpath to Frenchtown. Lovely little town with quaint shops and restaurants that offer some dining options geared towards bikers. But you're right; there's something special about a stop in New Hope before moving on...

Wonderful 1740 Inn with a beautiful view of the Delaware River. The rooms are very clean with probably the most comfortable king size bed we ever slept on! No musty or moldy odors and in fact our room had a sweet wood fragrance to it. We were here in mid October but due to a rare heat wave we were...

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. And we apologize if we didn't hit on every mark. That particular week was extraordinarily busy and it seems that breakfast got away from us a bit. And there's no excuse for the coffee not being hot enough.
