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 Jersey’s best kept getaway secret!
