Great getaway

4.4 on August 16, 2014

Stayed here this past August. My boyfriend and I were on a bike tour from PA to Brooklyn and needed some R&R after completing 100 miles on the rode. This was an outstanding B&B! The service was amazing and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and quiet! We will definitely be back in the fall or winter when we need a quiet place outside the city!


Anniversary Getaway Weekend

5 on July 18, 2014

This was our first ever B&B stay and we were not disappointed! They offer many different amenities including: snack bar, fresh baked goods, soda, teas, coffee, water, delicious buffet breakfast, etc! Our room was very cozy and clean. They have a decent DVD selection which we enjoyed. The landscaping is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the wrap around porch and reading and enjoying the scenery. There are numerous local and chain restaurants in the area to chose from. The inn keeper was very friendly and helpful and we will definitely be recommending The Whistling Swan to others.


Whistling Swan Inn was fabulous

Whistling Swan Inn

I could not have asked for a better experience with Ros and Tom. Ros opened her Inn and her arms to my family and friends. She allowed us to hold my sister's bachelorette party at her Inn and she went above and beyond in her accommodations to a large party of women, many of whom were not even staying the night. She allowed us to have a painting class and she set up a beautiful catered dinner on her front porch. The bride-to-be was beyond happy and without Ros' help, the night would not have been nearly as successful. The inn was beautiful and very well kept. Her breakfast was delicious as well! Thank you for your hospitality!

Innkeeper Response
I appreciate the kind words. It was a pleasure helping these ladies celebrate such a happy milestone in the guest of honor's life. They were charming and convivial guests, and I'm delighted they enjoyed the dinner, the breakfast and the special beauty of this wonderful old home.


A romantic getaway

We had a wonderful time at the Whistling Swan Inn on our honeymoon. Rosalind Bruno prepared a wonderful breakfast each morning and had many suggestions on where go to make our visit memorable.


A Stay Fit For a King and Queen

5 on March 06, 2014

Our three day stay at the Inn was outstanding. We really enjoyed our visit. The Great Meadows room was beautiful.The Parlor was so relaxing, warm, and cozy. The breakfasts were awesome. Ros and her staff made us feel very welcome.


Incredibly friendly, warm, and charming bed and breakfast

The whole experience and privacy is second to none! Very quaint and charming stay with excellent service and professional care! Already planning our second stay!


Truly deserves to be named in the top ten

5 on December 19, 2013

We recently celebrated our anniversary in the Walnut Valley Suite at Whistling Swan. The inn is charming, well appointed with gorgeous furnishings, well kept, and extraordinarily clean. Ros (the innkeeper) is extremely hospitable and is a great chef. The breakfasts were in keeping with expectations for an inn on the Select Registry. Ros keeps home baked goods, coffee, tea, cold beverages, a flask of sherry, and other snacks available for her guests 24-7. The bed, furniture, and room furnishings were comfortable providing for a relaxed environment. There was plenty of hot water for the romantic Jaccuzzi and the twin "his and her" separate bathrooms. The room was private and quiet. Ros made us feel more like visiting relatives than guests. While we didn't need any special considerations, she made sure we knew that nothing was too small to ask. Housekeeping also really did a nice job. Overall, this is the finest B & B we have ever visited and we would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in the Stanhope, North Jersey area. The Whistling Swan is a perfect getaway "worth the whistle" and exemplifies how a B & B should be operated. Thanks Ros for a delightful stay. We will be returning again.

Perfect place to relax!

5 on November 19, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Whistling Swan for two nights over Veterans Day weekend. The Whistling Swan participated in the B&Bs for Vets program, offering one free night to military veterans that weekend. Ros and Tom are excellent hosts, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would definitely recommend this B&B to friends, and will probably stay again. Check-in and check-out: we arrived late, but we were able to get to our room with no issues. Ros provided us with a code to access the front door, and left the key to our room on the front desk. There is plenty of parking available in the lot behind the inn. Check-out was easy, and they take all the major credit cards. Room: we stayed in the Morris Canal room on the second floor. The room was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. This room has a heater that simulates a fireplace and a TV with DVD/VCR player. Common areas: there is plenty of room to sit and relax downstairs if you want to do so. Ros and Tom have coffee, tea, snacks, and sherry (delicious!) available downstairs 24 hours a day. They also have a collection books and movies available. Things to do: my wife was experiencing pretty bad morning (all day) sickness so we mostly just rested in our room. We did venture out for pizza down the street, and I had an excellent dinner at Bell’s Mansion. The town has a lot of antique shops, and there are plenty of other options nearby. Breakfast: this is my favorite part of a bed and breakfast, and the Whistling Swan did not disappoint. Ros has an excellent breakfast buffet, and also makes one specialty item to order each day. We enjoyed croissant French toast casserole, breakfast burritos, eggs Florentine, ham, sausage, oatmeal, apple crisp, coffee, tea, orange juice, and an assortment of fruits.


So relaxing & enjoyable!

My husband and I stayed at the Whistling Swann in October. What a lovely time of year! Our room (the Harmony) was absolutely perfect from comfort to decor. Ros and Tom made delicious breakfasts each morning and scrumptious snacks to go with our tea and coffee in the afternoon. We enjoyed our talks with Ros,walking and shopping at The Blue Heron Antiques Shop as well as eating at local restaurants. This is definately a B & B that we will not only return to but recommend to our friends.
