Excellent breakfast, charming and very knowledgeable hosts. Beautiful Inn in a picture perfect ,serene setting.. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and watching the birds as we enjoyed delicious breakfasts prepared from scratch by Beth .What a gem we have found ! Karl and Beth did everything to make sure our stay was perfect..they are really sincere in wanting their guests to enjoy their time at the Inn and they did more then that. We will go back, hopefully many more times!

Innkeeper Response
We were delighted to host these very warm and friendly people. We are glad they enjoyed their time at the Wooden Duck. They are a delight to have as guests. They make this a rewarding occupation.

One of our favorite B&Bs!

My partner and I have stayed at The Wooden Duck several times. Karl is very welcoming and Beth's breakfasts are delicious. The pool and grounds in the summer are very nice and the fireplace and soaking tub in the room are very relaxing. We have recommended it to our friends and will continue to visit.

Good Surprise

Nice comfortable accommodations in a very scenic area. Karl and Beth made me feel as though I were family. Excellent, unhurried breakfast. I would would put The Wooden Duck on top of my list for a return visit

Wonderful stay!

We needed to find a nice place to stay in order to meet a work obligation in nearby Blairstown, NJ. We researched options on the web and chose the Wooden Duck....what a delightful B & B. Our hosts were most gracious and accommodating, even to recommending nearby eating places and providing numerous driving directions. Our room (not even the best in the inn) was truly one of the nicest we've expereinced in all of our B & B stays. The setting, along the fringes of a State park was enchanting and we felt relaxed within a half hour of arriving. We're not sure that we will have reason to return to the area---but just might have to make one up!

It's not very easy to find a place to stay in the Sparta-Newton area, but if you are fortunate enough to find the Wooden Duck, you will be pleased. It is a lovely respite and we will recommend it to all.
