The Inn was spotless, the room very beautiful with its victorian furniture. We stayed in the raspberry room and weren't disappointed. Phil is a pleasure, very accomadating.

Relaxing stay

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The nearby bike path, antique shop, and chip n putt were great memories. Pleasant host, yummy breakfast and a cozy room (small, but to be expected with the home's age) made this a great weekend away. Thanks Phyllis!

Pleasant stop over!

Our room was large, and well-furnished, house is lovely! Innkeeper Phyllis was very welcoming and helpful. Although located on a main road, it was quiet during the night. We plan to stay here again when in the area.

Couldn't have asked for a more restful stay

My wife and I booked a room at the Isacc Hilliard house since it was both close to our wedding venue and we didn't want to stay in a chain hotel. Not only was Phyllis an incredibly gracious hostess, but her breakfasts were delicious and helped keep us going while we contended with all the last-minute chaos before our wedding day. The room, though small, was cozy and exactly what we needed to decompress after being on our feet day in and day out in the middle of a torrential downpour. We also booked a room for my wife's brother and his girlfriend, but their arrival would have been well past anyone's bedtime. Phyllis, again, was already ahead of us and had a key ready for us that morning to hand over to them so we could all get into our rooms at the end of the day. Of course, there are some things to keep in mind: the building is very old - older than the United States, as Phyllis pointed out to us! - so the rooms are small and the tap water metallic. The beds are still full size and very comfortable, however, and bottled water is provided gratis. We would absolutely recommend the Isaac Hilliard house to anyone that wants a quaint, quiet place to bookend their day if they find themselves near the Pine Barrens. - William and Regina

Great Place to Stay

We spent a very nice weekend at Isaac Hilliard House. The experience there was enjoyable, pleasant and restful. The innkeepers Phil and Gene were extremely gracious and caring hosts. They both answered all our questions about the house and the surrounding area. Our room was very comfortable, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The breakfasts Phil served were “out of this world” including fresh fruit and homemade goodies. We loved everything! We highly recommend this bed and breakfast and are looking forward to staying there again. We're calling Phil and Gene in advance to book our favorite room again!

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

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.
