The Wooden Duck Bed & Breakfast $1,199,000

Fifteen miles from the Appalachian Trail, yet only 54 miles from Manhattan, the award-winning Wooden Duck Inn is ideally located on ten wooded acres in a beautiful area of New Jersey. Many of our guests come from as far away as Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Baltimore to escape their stressful lives and to re-energize at our secluded inn. The majority of our repeat guests, however, come from the congested areas of the New York metropolitan region, where life is more frenetic and time moves too quickly. They are amazed that such a tranquil place exists so close to their homes. While here, they swim in our outdoor pool (seasonally), enjoy a delightful walk through the woods in the adjacent 3500-acre Kittatinny State Park, explore one of the quaint antique shops in Andover, Newton or Lafayette, go horseback or bicycle riding, visit an interesting museum such as the Franklin Mineral Museum, or enjoy a live performance at the Newton Theatre. When they are ready for a delicious meal, they choose from a multitude of fine nearby restaurants where the cuisine ranges from authentic Thai and cozy bistros to New Jersey Italian and Irish pubs. After a good night’s sleep, they wake up refreshed and are able to enjoy the serenity of watching the abundant wildlife such as deer, birds, wild turkeys and foxes.

We have lovingly owned and run our Select Registry bed and breakfast for eight years, and it has been operating successfully as an inn since it opened in 1994. Consisting of nine spacious guest rooms, each with a queen bed and private, en suite bathroom, we have outfitted each room with all of the comforts of home. We have satellite TV, high speed Internet access, and telephones in every room, as well as irons and ironing boards, hair dryers, and air conditioning. Some rooms have fireplaces and private balconies, and 2-person soaking tubs which make them ideal for guests looking for a more romantic escape. We have recently opened a modern, well-equipped meeting room to provide a much-needed place for small, private meetings. With our quiet location and modern amenities, groups will find us to be the perfect venue for corporate retreats, team building events, or productive meetings.

One of the things that we have found to be quite nice about our inn is that we have a tastefully appointed common area that can be used personally, as well as by our guests. With two attics, a 2-1/2 car garage, three laundry rooms, a workshop, a large bedroom, den and two offices, we have ample storage space and plenty of room to enjoy our free time and privacy. If it were not for the fact that our children live far away and we are ready to retire to spend more time with our grandchildren, we would probably not be selling, as our guests have referred to it, our “little piece of heaven.” Since we love our guests, we want to make sure that they will not be disappointed if they make a reservation prior to its sale. Therefore, our well-maintained inn will be sold fully furnished, and we will provide training to the new owners. As we transfer ownership, this will help to ensure that the Wooden Duck will continue to hold the 5-star Trip Advisor rating that we have been honored with since 2009.
