Drive 6 miles north of New Hope and you’ll stumble upon the tiny river town of Lumberville. This charming town embodies the classic Bucks County ambiance—think English village with stone farmhouses stacked high above the river. Anchoring this diminutive town is The Black Bass Hotel. This National Historic landmark has been welcoming visitors since the 1700s. Today, the Black Bass is part inn (there are nine elegant suites filled with antique furnishings and stunning river views), part restaurant (with both a main dining room and a casual tavern) and part event space (three unique spaces). Private dining in the Black Bass is a delightful experience with a room off the main restaurant. The intimate space accom- modates up to 14 guests and shares the same colonial sensibility as the rest of the inn with wide plank wood floors, wrought iron chandeliers, and of course, unmatched river views. The conference room accommodates up to 16, while the downstairs canal room accommo- dates up to 65 guests.
