Stan & Julia are amazing hosts! We were celebrating our 2nd anniversary and it was our 1st time at a B&B. They made our stay memorable starting with Julia's delicious homemade breakfast. Stan and Julia make you feel like family. The house is immaculate and beautiful. We look forward to staying with them again soon. Thank you for everything, Stan & Julia We highly recommend anyone to stay there.
Tom could not be more friendly and accommodating. As compared to other places, this B&B offered tasty, full breakfasts. The always open common lounge area was welcoming and well stocked with cookies and soft drinks, tea or coffees, even sherry. There was an extensive collection of DVDs too. The wrap around front porch and grounds were wonderful too. We had a very enjoyable stay.
We went up as three couples from the same family, and loved our stay. The rooms were clean and inviting, Roz was a very welcoming host and breakfast both days was delicious. Cookies and brownies and coffee available whenever we wanted them. I recommend this Inn to anyone staying in the Skylands area of NJ.
We stayed for a long weekend 3/25 -3/28/2016. Ros was amazing. The décor and the breakfast that was prepared each morning was truly wonderful. She really would make you feel right at home. Very pleasant staff. I would definitely return and recommend this to everyone. My husband and I rode bikes along the canal which are complimentary. We also went to Bushkill Falls which is about 40 minutes form the hotel. Lots to see. Very cozy!!!
This was the first B and B my wife and I ever stayed in. It was absolutely perfect. The room was great, and the breakfast was incredible. We were on a "babymoon" and received in room massages. Overall a great experience and we will definitely be returning soon.
The inside story to my recent stay, before my review... I was given a weekend stay gift card by a very dear friend of mine... She knows that I'm basically a jeans, t-shirt and sneakers type of guy, and was hoping to broaden my horizons with a stay at the inn... My plan was to enjoy a relaxing 'no plans' weekend away and see what came up... We checked in mid-day on Friday and were greeted by the very gracious Ros, she filled us in on everything and showed us to our room... And we just settled in for a lazy night, complete with some very yummy freshly baked cookies and brownies and a fine glass of sherry... Saturday morning we headed down for a breakfast that left us full, and every tastebud tickled... We headed out to explore the local area and came back after a few hours to find our freshened up room... The room well it was quaint and comfy, with a bathroom that we kinda wanted to sneak home with us... We asked Ros for a recommendation for an Italian restaurant, and wow she sent us to an awesome one... So to sum it up, we totally enjoyed our stay, and are looking forward to future visits to further explore the area, knowing we'll enjoy great hospitality, an awesome breakfast and a relaxing stay away from our everyday... Thank you Ros...
My fiancé and I just had a wonderful weekend here. Stan and Julia are very nice and accommodating. The house is beautiful and spotless. We would definitely come back and recommend to all our friends!
We wanted to relax and enjoy some time together... and our expectations were exceeded. This B&B has old world charm that lends perfectly to romance and relaxation. Our suite was very unique, comfortable, spotless and with great amenities. Ros and the staff are welcoming, kind and attentive, while allowing plenty of privacy. We were pampered with delicious breakfasts - the lemon pancakes are to die for!! We also enjoyed dinner at nearby restaurants that Ros recommended. It was the perfect getaway, one we hope to return to one day. Thank you!
The Whistling Swan Inn was one of the recommended places to stay for my nephews wedding, and all I can say is that I am so happy that I chose here. The Ros was great the place is beautiful and clean. I will definitely stay again!
The Whistling Swan Inn is a welcome alternative to the chains for the business traveler. Tom maintains a fleet of bikes which can be used on the nearby Morris Canal bike path which connects to the Sussex Branch Rail Trail. Much better than the fitness room. After your morning ride, read the papers on the front porch with you first cup of coffee which is available 24 hours.The rates are competitive with the nearby chains but those hotels can't match the home cooked breakfasts prepared by Ros. Breakfast conversations are always enjoyable with like minded travelers. If you have an early departure, she prepares breakfast to go with a delicious hot egg sandwich. Finish the day with one of Ros' killer brownies on a platter by the beverage station. A microwave is available for a convenient dinner if you don't have the time or energy to dine out.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Cherry Valley Manor. We took a fall road trip from Pittsburgh to Boston. Our stay at Cherry Valley Inn was our first stop. It set the tone for our trip. Stan and Julia's B&B is absolutely beautiful inside and out! They both have a gift to make strangers feel welcome in their home. Julia's cooking is outstanding! The grounds surrounding their home are lovely - so colorful in the fall!
My husband and I booked a Spa Suite and were very pleased with the room. We have previously stayed at the French Manor and have never been disappointed. The room was very comfortable and spacious and the deck had a great view of the grounds which were gorgeous, especially with the fall foliage.
Ros is awesome...super sweet and helpful...I am a total breakfast girl and Ros did not disappoint. The inn is beautiful but not stuffy. You feel at home and more than welcomed.. The 24 hr snack bar is a great touch and the brownies to die for. If you are looking for a welcoming relaxed place to unwind your search is over. Next time we stay we are going to do Jacuzzi suite for complete relaxation. I had the best time doing nothing with my hubby for our anniversary .. Thanks Ros.
I give five stars to everything My new fiance booked it especially for his proposal. It was located 5 minutes drive from the gorgeous Delaware Water Gap, where he proposed in front of our friends and a beautiful fall foliage lookout. Returning from the our hike to this bed and breakfast was fantastic. The room is gorgeous and clean. The double capacity jacuzzi was the perfect romantic event after a hike. The hosts were so amazingly friendly and happy for us. The food were amazing This will always have a special spot in our heart. Thanks Julia and Stan!
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and really needed to relax! The Whistling Swan Inn exceeded our expectations for comfort, excellent hospitality and good location! Thank you for a wonderful experience.
My husband & I just came back from spending my birthday which was a total surprise for me at your Manor. I was totally impressed with the room and the property and loved every minute of it . Our one disappointment was the dinner, not so much as the cost, but the quality for the price. We had the Filet & Lobster combo, the steak was average and the Lobster was far below our expectation. For the price of the Enchanted Evening package a couple of bottles of water in the room would have been appreciated. These were provided upon request.
My daughter and I stayed here one night for a Mom/Daughter weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Roz, out hostess was very welcoming and friendly. Our room was lovely and we enjoyed the electric fireplace. The only reason the room doesn't get 5 stars is the lack of facial tissues. A silly thing but we missed them. The breakfast was delicious with many choices and yummy eggs benedict. My only disappointment was that we weren't staying a second night. Definitely would recommend this B&B.
We were greeted by Ros, who was warm and friendly. We stayed for 2 nights and found the inn to be terrific, beautiful, immaculate and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and enjoyed our talks with Ros. We had a lovely stay and highly recommend this inn to anyone.
My husband and I booked the 'Jacuzzi with a view' room for our recent elopement and it was perfect! Julia was accommodating and flexible with our check in time and had a fridge for us to store our wedding cake and wine in. The house was immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, and peacefully quiet. The bed was comfortable, shower was amazing, and the jacuzzi was the best! Every day, Julia prepared a wonderful, one-of-a-kind breakfast, with fantastic service provided by her husband, Stan. Over the course of our stay, Julia and Stan made us feel welcome in their home the way that our own families would have. On the day of the wedding (in their beautiful, peaceful backyard) Julia and Stan bent over backwards to make sure we didn't want for anything. I really can't compliment them enough on their wonderful hospitality. Really beautiful people in a beautiful, elegant house, surrounded by beautiful nature. I wouldn't just recommend this place to our friends, I would push them to go and experience it for themselves. Thank you Julia and Stan (and your lovely granddaughter, Sasha) for helping us create our dream wedding!
We loved our stay at the Cherry Valley Manor for our anniversary. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Stan and Julia were extremely accommodating and friendly. The property is absolutely gorgeous. The included breakfast was fantastic. We stayed in the Romantic Occasion room. The room was great and the bathroom was beautiful. Great Jacuzzi! We also enjoyed a little time in the pool, which was located on the very beautiful and relaxing property. Looking forward to returning!!
We loved our stay and are looking forward to returning sometime! Highlights were the free bike rental and lovely ride; the huge amazing bathtub; the delicious breakfast and generous snacks available all day. Thanks!!
