History Buff Paradise!

5 on August 23, 2014

Loved the atmosphere, location and home as well as the owner. Stayed in the Raspberry Room. Spacious and nicely decorated. House was built in the mid 1700,s. Loads of history. Enjoyed our visit very much, would recommend to anyone traveling to New Jersey.

A Good Place to Lay Your Head

Our stay was very pleasant. Phyl was very kind, the room was comfortable, and the breakfast was good.

Worth it on every level

Great location! Close to all Pine Barren activities including hiking, canoeing, and the cranberry harvest. Awesome breakfast and an amazing nights sleep.

best night in 2013

4.6 on December 31, 2013

The year comes to an end, and we remember the best night of the year. After a hard ride on hot summer days by bicycle through New Jersey and before a heavy thunderstorm in flooded Pinelands, we spent a wonderfully relaxing night with a family breakfast and the pool on a super summer morning. For Phyllis we were like permanent residents. A lot of work for one night. We wish you a happy and prosperous New Year 2014. We hope to come back again.

Wonderful Weekend

We recently spent my birthday weekend at the Isaac Hilliard House - it definitely exceeded my expectations. Phyllis provided just the right level of personal attention and letting us enjoy the house on our own. It is a very special place, highly recommend to others....

Very Comfortable

My husband and I recently spent six nights at the Issac Hilliard House. Each night we had a relaxing and restful sleep in a comfortable bed. We certainly enjoyed the very clean room and bathroom and nice thick towels. We experienced six different breakfasts and each was wonderful - the French toast was outstanding! We also enjoyed our talks with Phyllis and appreciated how she always asked if we needed anything else during our stay.

Caring and Loving

5 on June 28, 2013

I always stay with Phyllis when I am traveling through New Jersey. My room is always perfect, and the energy of the house is welcoming and nurturing. The food is exquisitely prepared and served with love and kindness. Staying in a house that has a tradition of protection and safety for hundreds of years, is an experience I would recommend to travelers coming anywhere close to little Pemberton. If you are looking for a place to be loved and cared for, this is the place for you. If you are looking for a place with more amenities than you need and to be treated like a number, then drive on to Philadelphia.

Great Stay!

We were in the area for a lacrosse tournament and need a room. My son was a little iffy about it but it was a great experience. The room was clean and confortable the breakfast was delicious (real men do eat Quiche) and Phylis was very nice. We would stay there again.

Very Comfortable

We drove from Maine for a funeral, stayed 1 night and found the Issac Hillard House very comforting. We Loved sharing grandchildren stories and pictures with Phyll. Breakfast was delicious!! She even had my favorite drink available...?? Phyll made a very difficult time more bareable. Great home away from home. Thanks for sharing with us.

Nice Place to Stay

We stayed with our young daughter and Phyl was very accomodating. I would return here if staying in the area again.
