Have driven by this place countless times and thinking of trying it for a special occasion dinner. I'd appreciate any thoughts if you've been or heard about it. Thanks.

    It"s been a good while since we were there for an anniversary dinner but it was wonderful. Lovely service, no rushing, great food. The small desserts were a great surprise, we loved all the little bites. I think it is a great spot for a special dinner. It wasn't cheap but I've spent more elsewhere and not been as happy.

      Evermay has closed it's doors due to an ownership change. Really a pity. What a fabulous place it was!!!

        Thanks for the not-so-good news. Do you know if the Cuttalossa Inn is still open? It was mentioned about six months ago that the Cuttalossa was for sale.

          I've heard the Cuttalossa was for sale. If you are interested in interesting food, Lambertville has many nice places.

      You could try the Carversville Inn--beautiful setting, wonderful food. It's about 15 minutes from Evermay. Also, the Black Bass Hotel or the Centre Bridge Inn have very good food and they are right on the river.

        The Black Bass Hotel is, unfortunately, only accomodating private parties now.

          Hey, flourgirl, I phoned The Black Bass but was unable to talk to a human. The recorded message is not very enlightening. It says they are temporarily closed and are only accepting private parties. This is marginally more information that what is on their web site. Is the whole hotel closed, or just the dining room and if it's the dining room, how are they able to accommodate private parties?

          Odd. I wonder if this is somehow connected to the serious floods on the Delaware a couple of years ago. I believe the Bass was really hit.

            Hi ambrose!

            Yes, i don't understand it either - and I hope this really is temporary. My husband and I loved the place, but unfortunately hadn't gone in the last few years because it kind of fell off our radar when our son was born. (Didn't get out much.)

            We had one especially memorable night there right around this time of year but about 12 years ago. They were offering a package which included tickets to a haunted hayride in point pleasant PA for after dinner. We organized a big group of people to go and had a blast. None of our friends had been there before and they all loved it too.

            I could see how the hotel would have faired badly during those floods. What a shame. Well. here's hoping that the current owners/management can hang on and get her up and running and open to the public again in the near future.
