A relaxing night

4.4 on October 16, 2014

Our night at the Whistling Swan was very nice. Snacks and drinks were available all night. The room as well as the inn was very neat and clean. Lovely grounds on the outside including a nice wraparound porch. The breakfast in the morning was very good which was highlighted by eggs benedict. Very GOOD.


My "Go-To-Inn"

5 on October 12, 2014

My wife and I have stayed at the Whistling Swan Inn at least a half a dozen time over as many years to include BRT (Before Ros and Tom). It's the best place to stay in northern New Jersey; and it's only an hour's drive from Newark Airport (after commuter traffic has passed). We like it because it's comfortable, quiet, reasonably priced, and breakfasts are 'gourmet'. And importantly, Ros and Tom are a superb and accommodating hosts.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words ... we're blushing! It's always a pleasure to see old friends when they return to the Inn, and we're glad that you've continued to make us your home away from home.


Wonderful

Lovely B&B in the scenic part of New Jersey. Extremely comfortable rooms, great rates and wonderful service. Breakfast is different every day and will keep you going until dinner. Highly recommended.


Lovely B&B, great location, delicious breakfast!

We stayed at the Whistling Swan for three nights in the Tranquility Room. It was absolutely exactly what we needed! Extremely comfortable accommodations in a beautiful, well-maintained home. The hospitality was great, food delicious, surrounding area filled with fun and relaxing things to do, the grounds of the Whistling Swan are beautiful and very tranquil. Can't wait to go back!

Innkeeper Response
Exceeding customer expectations is our number one priority, and we're glad you had such an enjoyable stay at the Whistling Swan Inn. - Ros


Cozy Getaway

5 on October 03, 2014

As a wedding gift, we were given a gift certificate for this lovely B&B. We hadn't planned a honeymoon, so this was perfect. We stayed 2 days in the Harmony Suite. The room was quiet and comfortable. The owner/innkeeper, Ros, is personable and makes wonderful breakfast items. She even shared one of her recipes that we enjoyed. We ate dinner the first night at a German restaurant called The Black Forest. The next night was yummy burgers at the Stanhope House. Delicious! We recommend both! We really enjoyed our time at the Whistling Swan and will definitely return!


First Time Guests

5 on September 22, 2014

This was the first time that my wife and I stayed at a Bed and Breakfast. We were there a few months ago. It was everything we we were looking for in a Bed and Breakfast and more. We were very lucky. We were the only ones staying there at the time and that allowed us to look at each room and choose the one that we would like to stay in next time. The entire house is very, very clean. Much better than most hotels. We felt very comfortable there and slept great. The room and the bed was very comfortable. The owner, Roz, is wonderful and a joy to talk to. She will leave you alone if you like and give you your space, or she will tell you about her house and the area. She is a wonderful cook too. There is a lot to do here. Large selection of DVD's with a DVD player and a nice TV in each room. Large selection of interesting books and newspapers to read. I enjoyed looking at all of the pictures on the walls and other knick knacks. Check out the wall of different Presidential pictures on the second floor landing. We will be going back as soon as we can. There is a lot to do in the area and good dining, but The Whistling Swan is really a destination in itself, not just a place to stay while visiting the area. I just wish it were closer to home so we could go more often. You will not be disappointed. Especially with the home made chocolate cookies. Mmmmmm! We did not feel like we were staying in a hotel, but rather the home of a friend.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the kind words. I'm so glad your first stay at a bed and breakfast was a memorable one. My number one priority as an innkeeper is to ensure that guests feel comfortable and leave relaxed, rejuvenated and well-fed. I'm so glad the reality lived up to your expectations of a B&B stay.


Wow! Great place. Loved it.

A short but memorable stay

We arrived at this oasis after a 16 + hour flight from Australia. A haven just beautiful. Ros was as charming & welcoming as her beautiful home. The accomodation outstanding, location restful & tranquel & homecooking yhum. I hope we can go back but will certainly recommend to friends who intend to travel to New Jersey.

Innkeeper Response
It was wonderful having you both as guests of the inn and hope to see you again the next time you visit the States. Thank you for your kind words. Knowing that our guests' expectations have been met is one of the reasons why innkeeping is so rewarding.


Great stay!

My husband and I stayed here for one night and enjoyed our time very much. We were able to fine at a local outdoor restsurant and go biking on one of the many trails in Stanhope the next day. Also, we loved the orange waffles:-)!


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!
