Bed and Breakfasts can be quite charming when you’re in a town like Bucks County, PA. I recently went on a short road trip to Bucks County, where I visited vineyards, distilleries, and so much more.
I stayed at the 1740 House, which is a great b&b along the Delaware river. In this 24 room bed and breakfast, all guests can enjoy incredible views of the Delaware river, charming service staff, and quaint accommodations. Every room is homey and enjoyable, and you have an option for a single room, suite, or deluxe. My room was beautiful, right at the top of the stairs, with a private balcony, and large comfortable furnishings.
After dinner at Maxwell’s on Main in Doylestown, where I enjoyed and IPA, fried pickles, and a caramelized onion flatbread. The restaurant is about twenty minutes from the 1740 house, so if you don’t mind a bit of a drive, then this is a great spot for families and the younger crowds. After dinner I made my way back to the b&b where I happily caught a sunset view, smoked a Gurkha Cigar, and sipped on a half bottle of Bucks County wine on my balcony. The room is extremely spacious, clean, and quiet, which is very different from the city. It’s peaceful in Bucks County and is the perfect getaway when you need it (and boy, did I need it).
Every morning, wake up to a continental breakfast of bacon, toast, cereals, oatmeal, and a daily special. Coffee service starts bright and early, and breakfast is from 8:30-9:30am. On weekends, enjoy a “heavier” continental breakfast with farm fresh eggs, pressed juices, and a a very charming Martha (breakfast attendant/manager). She was a bundle of joy, making sure everyone had what they needed in the morning, re-filling stations as needed, and chatting with guests she got to know over their few day stay; she was a bundle of joy at 8:30am!
The rooms at 1740 House range from $170/night-300/night depending on weekday or weeknight bookings, availability, as well as season. This was my first time at a b&b and I must say, it was one great experience. I would absolutely go back to 1740 House for the service, accommodations, and incredible views.
