My wife and I stayed here, along with a number of family members, for my daughter's wedding down the road at BB Inn. Richard the owner was incredibly accommodating, allowing me to hold rooms for my family right up to the last minute. The innkeepers really did everything to make us feel "at home". We loved our room (number 6),...

Dear MS2020, Thank you for the great compliments regarding your stay at the 1740 House. Many guest believe I own the inn. The inn is owned by three local professionals that love the 1740 House and are wonderful to work for.

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...
