Ultimate Romance & Relaxation

5 on November 29, 2015

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!


Definitely a place to revisit!

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!

Great Alternative for the Business Traveler

4.6 on November 02, 2015

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.


Welcome home

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.


Very Romantic B&B

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.


Wonderful Get Away

4.8 on October 11, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response
I'm so sorry there were no facial tissues in your room. I can certainly understand how that can be annoying. When I inspect the rooms, I'll be sure to double check to ensure there's a box of tissues in each room. I'm glad your stay was otherwise pleasant, and I'll look forward to seeing you again.


"A Fabulous Inn"

3.8 on August 21, 2015

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.
