Recently my fiance and I stayed at the Whistling Swan Inn for the weekend. The room was so intimate, and incredibly clean. The description on the site matched my expectations perfectly! All guests were so welcoming, and very respectful. We had two nights, or the most peaceful sleep we've had in a long time! The Inn Keeper was so wonderful! She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and was able to direct us to some excellent places to shop. She stopped to talk with us during breakfast, and not at one point did we feel rushed or like we were a bother. Breakfast is made on site by the Inn Keeper and it was very delicious! Each morning was something different and each meal was perfect. So pleasant being able to eat outside, and there was plenty of room and different seating areas for people to mingle, or branch off on their own. They definitely think of everything to make your stay more delightful and easy going. I had ordered a private couples massage, and I must say, they did deliver! She was excellent! By far, one of the most professional and friendly people I've ever met! I would definitely stay there again, my fiance and I even discussed it becoming our little thing when we want to get away for the weekend (combined we have 4 children - getaways are very important to us!). Would definitely recommend to others, the entire time I was there I could picture friends and family staying there!
Mother daughter getaway to Stanhope was enhanced by our stay at the lovely Whistling Swan Inn. We brought dinner to enjoy on the amazing wrap-around porch with fireflies lighting our table. Our room was beautiful with a sparkling new bathroom. We appreciated the complimentary array of cold beverages and snacks at any hour. Our garden side breakfast on the porch was delicious! We enjoyed good conversation with our hostess, Rosalind. We have plans to return in the Fall.
We stayed at the Inn for Fourth of July weekend and stayed in the Walnut Valley Suite. The Inn has well-appointed rooms and peaceful surroundings. The morning breakfast was delightful--you might find blueberry French toast, eggs benedict, sticky buns, and other delicious treats. Innkeepers Roz and Tom are wonderful and great conversationalists. Enjoy resting at the Inn or venturing out to nearby restaurants, wineries, lakes and parks. A wonderful stay!
Spent a lovely night at the Whistling Swan Inn and wished we could have stayed much longer. Our room was cozy and comfortable, the breakfast was substantial and delicious, and there was also a generous offering of soft drinks, coffee, tea, snacks, baked goods and sherry available all day. Though the Inn is situated in a residential neighborhood, it was very quiet and we were able to relax on the porch and sit in the gazebo overlooking the garden, the only sound being water from the fountain and coy pond. Rosalind was friendly and informative, giving us suggestions for places to visit and restaurants to try. We are anxiously awaiting a return visit.
This B&B is top notch, with well-appointed rooms, delicious buffet breakfast which might include such selections as blueberry French toast, eggs Benedict, sticky buns, waffles, cereals and fruit, among other items. Relax on the porch, indulge in a glass of sherry, engage in conversation. Innkeepers Roz and Tom are a delight. Located on a quiet street, you could easily rest at the Inn or venture out to nearby attractions, lakes and parks, wineries and restaurants. We had a wonderful getaway to celebrate our anniversary!
In North Jersey there is just one place to stay: The Whistling Swan Inn. There is a German word that best describes the Inn: Gemuetlichkeit. It takes a-half dozen words in English to translate it; but, it means, warm, cozy, friendly, comfortable, good, etc. The owners, and hostess and host, are Roz and Tom Bruno. They are very accommodating and helpful with special requests and interests of which I’ve had some, such as entertaining guests, ordering from local vendors, and ‘hands-on-help’. Roz’s breakfasts are the best to include special requests. If it’s reasonable and possible, it’s done. The Inn is a great ‘go-to’ destination-great for a quiet long weekend get-away. I think my wife and I have stayed at The Whistling Swan at least six or seven times in as many years.
Stayed over our 30th wedding anniversary at the Swan. The room was great, Roz & Tom were warm, welcoming and helpful. The home is lovely even in a New Jersey winter. We've already recommended the Swan to friends and will gladly return.
My wife and I stayed at the Whistling Swann this past November and had a wonderful experience. We stayed in the Stillwater Mini Suite. Rosalind was a fantastic host. The Inn was beautiful, and our room was perfect. Breakfast was excellent. I strongly recommend this B&B, and look forward to coming back again.
I recently visited the New Jersey area and when I went to search for hotels in the area I found this B&B. The price was reasonable to what I would pay for chain hotels and the staff was EXTREMELY friendly and personable. I would recommend this place to anyone and did on my visit. I will be staying here on my next trip to the area. Awesome experience.
This beautiful Inn is everything you would want and expect from a well-run B&B. Out of the way enough to provide very quiet and relaxing surroundings, but perfectly situated for enjoying all that this region provides - including journeys into NYC. Breakfasts were great - whether off the buffet or off the grill, they catered to every taste. And LOVED coming in of an evening and finding those brownies waiting for us. Rooms were tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. Grounds were beautifully landscaped (I can see why people want to get married here.) Roz, your hospitality and customer focus are unrivaled. Thanks for a great experience and some lasting memories.
We recently booked the Whistling Swan Inn for our wedding of 40 people. It was a perfect setting for our ceremony in the garden and reception on the wide wrap around porch. The inn is beautifully and restored in Victorian style with ornate woodwork and antiques in every room. We felt very much at home in our room, as did family and friends who stayed for the weekend. We can not say enough about Ros who was very hospitable to all of our guests, but also extremely helpful as our "ring leader" in planning our day. She had wonderful contacts for all of our needs and everyone worked together beautifully. It truly was a low stress atmosphere for planning an event. On a final note, the breakfast in the morning is not to be missed! There were several delicious cold and hot options, especially the lemon pancakes. We highly recommend this inn, whether staying for a few nights or planning an intimate gathering.
A stay in the Tranquility room was "just what the doctor ordered" after a couple rough weeks at work. My gf and I enjoyed dinner down the street at Bell's Mansion, then took a casual stroll by the creek in the morning. The proprietor at the Inn was welcoming, and made us feel at home! Definitely recommend.
