The Whistling Swan Inn, a Stanhope New Jersey Bed and Breakfast
Nestled in the beautiful Skylands region of New Jersey, the house now known as the Whistling Swan Inn was built in 1905 by the Justice of Peace, Daniel Best for his wife, Sarah. After passing through six families, this wonderful old house was restored to its turn-of-the century Victorian splendor and converted to a Bed and Breakfast in 1985.
We have kept the flavor of a vintage family home from a friendly welcome and refreshments at arrival to a sumptuous breakfast in our dining room or on our pillared porch.
Whatever the season, a
myriad of activities awaits you in
the Skylands New Jerseys best kept getaway secret!
We have also tried to keep the flavor of a vintage family home with everything from a friendly welcome and refreshments at arrival to a hearty breakfast on our pillar porch or by the fire in our dining room.
For breakfast you'll find our buffet of fresh baked breads and muffins, a hot main dish, variety of fruits and juices, yogurt, cereals, plus a selection of teas and steaming coffee. We eat outdoors when the weather warms us or in by a fireplace for winter mornings.
All rooms have queen or king sized bed, TV/VCR/DVD, wireless internet and private bath. Some rooms also have refrigerator, jacuzzi and/or fireplace
Stroll in our Victorian garden or just relax on the veranda, reading
the morning paper. Spend the afternoon enjoying the highlights of the Skylands
region; Waterloo Village, Lake Hopatcong, Chester crafts, antiquing,
horseback riding, hiking and biking in the State parks. After a busy day enjoy a quiet
swing on the porch swing, take a nap in the side-yard hammock, or sit in our
parlor and enjoy pleasant conversations with new-found friends.
Later, enjoy fine dining at one of the Skylands gourmet restaurants, some within walking distance of the Inn. Highlight your evening at a local entertainment spot or simply take a stroll and enjoy the quiet. Once the evening is over, snuggle up with your special someone and enjoy a glass of sherry and homemade cookies next to a crackling fire in our cozy guest parlor. When ready to retire, sink into your queen sized featherbed and fall asleep to a movie from our video library.
