Lumberville 1740 House Country Inn
long the Delaware River in the quaint village of Lumberville you will find the historic Lumberville 1740 House Country Inn. Originally a working farm in the 1700s, it was later purchased by Harry Nessler in 1968 and turned into a motor lodge, with rooms having views of the river and the Lumberville-Raven Rock Pedestrian Bridge. In 2010, new owners Joe Luccaro, owner of HollyHedge Estate, and his partner Dr. Neil Cohen purchased the 1740 House. The partners have restored and preserved the lengthy two-story inn—and established the 1740 Club on site at the Inn. The private Club is open to members only five days a week for private, riverfront dining and cocktails. But, can also be made available for private functions like bridal showers and rehearsal dinners to non-members. According to General Manager Tim Luccaro, the 1740 House is ideal for small intimate parties, particularly riverfront rehearsal dinners. “We have recently overhauled our menu, partnering with great local purveyors like Shady Fox Farms in Solebury, to create some amazing catering menus under Executive Chef John McGrath. The biggest draw of the property, though, continues to be the gorgeous views of the Delaware River from throughout the dining room, bar and patio areas.
While the 1740 House has a limited capacity, in the winter (the maximum party size outdoors is 32 people), when we can make use of the patio and outside area, it can go up to as many as 65 people for a cocktail style event. We think the space and staff offer a really exceptional Bucks County experience for small private events,” Luccaro says The 1740 House is a sister property of HollyHedge Estate. Meaning the wedding coordinators at HollyHedge work with the 1740 House to plan all rehearsal dinners and private events. The 1740 House has its own catering staff, and executive chef John McGrath has overseen the recent menu updates. Both properties offer wedding packages that include the cake, ceremony, reception, flowers, and linens. Bridal showers and rehearsal dinners at the 1740 House are currently booking four months to a year out, according to Luccaro. Brides and grooms can get a tour of the historic country inn by appointment only. The 1740 House also offers 24 guest rooms with full-service breakfast for its guests. Lumberville 1740 House Country Inn is located at 3690 River Road in Lumberville, PA. Their phone number is 215-297-5661.

C Cuthbertson has come up with a novel solution to help brides plan a wedding. It is an online wedding concierge service that takes the anxiety out of the overwhelming process of coordinating this very special event.TC says, “Our concierge service is an online wedding coordinating and booking platform. Brides can come to the EventRoostr website and book wedding packages that include vendors that the bride needs, such as caterers, DJs, photography services and florists, which takes the randomness out of planning her wedding. The process is simple and easy.TC explains,“The bride would go to EventRoostr.com and see the venue and experience packages that she wants, and she would procure those services with a 10 percent deposit on the platform, so it is an e-commerce platform with payment plans to make affording wedding expenses more comfortable. She can also make queries through the platform, and she can get in contact with her event coordinator who actually will reach out to her when she first uses the platform and will stay with her through the whole process. Once the bride has placed a deposit for the package she needs, she will be able to schedule what we call a Roostr vendor meeting. The vendor meetings allow the bride to have a one-on-one in-person meeting with each vendor that she procured through our platform.”

During these vendor meetings she may get details on DJs, linens, design options, and even down to specific things like photograph categories, such where the bride wants to take her photos— with her bridal party, onsite or at a separate location. Each vendor will provide her with these details during their meeting. The bride’s investment is protected. TC says, “Every single event that is booked through our platform is 100 percent insured. All of the vendors, even down to the wedding itself is insured. In other words, she can get complete insurance coverage for every aspect of her wedding.” The bride also has lots of options and there are different varieties of experiences that a bride can choose. “For example, maybe a bride already has the DJ but needs décor and photography, she can select a specific package that only includes décor and photography and once she has that package, she puts a deposit on the platform, and she has photography and décor locked in.” EventRoostr takes the hassle out of event planning.The bride has more buying power and can compare vendor prices.
