This is in lovely Hope NJ in warren county. From the outside the Inn at Millrace Pond location looks warm and inviting, once inside the quaintness and history was welcoming us to a very nice setting. After we ate we even toured the building, it has a lot of history and I recommend touring it. We chose to eat in fine dining area as my daughter took me there for quailty time and good fine dining food. Below is the Fireside Tavern which is just as warm and inviting as the dining area . The dining room had a very interesting tasting menu. Everything was well prepared, with attention to details. You have the option of trying each of a cold and hot appetizer or ordering a shareable. I had the Jersey Corn Soup and my daughter had the Macintosh Apple & Baby Beet we agreed our choses were very good the Jersey corn soup was the best I ever had. The entrees we had were venison and salmon and we both agreeded were excellent. We both had dessert which was a nice ending to a wonderful evening. The service was good, as it should be for a fine dining experience. I highly recommend eating in the dining room for a special occasion or like us bonding time between mother and daughter and to add to the great night we had a piano player playing very nice background music. Take the trip it's only 10 minutes from the Delaware Water Gap, you'll be glad you did.


RELAXING would be the key word here!

My husband and I stayed overnight for our anniversary. We had dinner in the Main dining room. The food and service were both amazing! I am still dreaming about the avocado & poached egg crostini - SO GOOD! We stayed in the Cottage. Being a booklover, I loved all the shelves filled with old books. The room was clean, inviting and had a pretty view of the courtyard. Also had time to drive through the charming town and checked out the nearby Four Sister's Winery. Would love to visit again for a longer stay. Thank you for a lovely time!


Sweet place!

I unexpectedly decided to stay in the area after a visit to a local farm one Friday afternoon. The rooms at the Inn are very nicely decorated, and the 18th century feeling is very restful and beautiful. My dinner was wonderful, and the service was great. The servers for both breakfast and dinner were very helpful with my asking for substitutions. The folks working there helped me print out my directions back home, and the room was a comfortable temperature. WiFi was great. It was nice to have a full breakfast as part of the overnight room price, not just a continental breakfast as most bnbs serve. Lovely area. I would go back again if I'm in the area.


Daughter's Wedding - 4-25-2015

5 on May 16, 2015

I just want to thank you for the wonderful time we had at my daughter, Erin Brennan's, wedding. Your employees were so wonderful and so helpful. The food was fantastic. The flowers were beautiful and I can't say enough about the decor. The wedding was a great success and I owe it all the you. We had so much fun and I wish we can relive it all over again. Thank you again and for those couples who are deciding to have a wedding at the Old Mill Pond, please DO IT. You will love every minute of it . You are indeed a great venue.


Great Time with out the drive!

We were looking to get away for an overnight during Labor Day weekend. The drive was an hour from our home off of Route 80. We felt like we were in Vermont without the tedious 4 hour plus drive. Everything was perfect! The room was nicely appointed, everyone wanted to please us and the food was good. We ate in the Tavern which was nice and had a lovely included breakfast buffet in the Dining Room which was included in the stay.. We would love to go back in the Winter as there is a great big fireplace in the Tavern that they light in the colder months. It really was just enough...the surrounding country side is beautiful for long rides and there are plenty of antique shops and historical sites along the way to stop and explore. We will definitley be back to this little Inn with a great vibe!

This Inn is located in a quaint village and is in a lovely setting. Unfortunately, average conversations from next door and the room above easily penetrate the walls and floors and it becomes difficult to sleep - the folks next door returned at 12:15 am and conversed for 30 minutes and the folks upstairs got in at 1:30am and it took them and their child at least 30 minutes to get settled thus it made for a disruptive night of sleep. This is also not an ideal place for those of us with significant dietary restrictions as the kitchen can not easily address them via their weekend breakfast buffet. Given the buffet is part of the room charge, it is aggravating to have little to safely eat.


A gem!
