We were at the Skyland Manor for a wedding in June. We were very excited to attend because we knew the Skyland Manor had a lot of charm and it looked absolutely beautiful. As soon as we pulled in there were issues. You can only park in 3 lots, which are all at least 1/4 of a mile away from... More

I read many reviews (quite a few negative) on this facility prior to booking through a Groupon but decided to go to make my own assessment. My husband and I took my son, daughter-in-law, and two small grandchildren on an "adventure" We stayed in the family Chateau Room which was perfect for all of us. The rooms were very large... More

My husband and I stayed overnight in the Gatsby room. I am a firm believer in reviews as I rely on the when I am traveling to a new place. I saw the mixed reviews and chose to book anyway. I am glad that we did. Although, normally out of our price range we booked a great deal through Groupon.... More

This is a wonderful bed an breakfast in the midst of the New Jersey Botanical Gardens, less than 90 minutes from the George Washington Bridge. We came for a two night respite and from the moment we arrived the Inn Keeper, Dave" was attentive and helpful. After checking us in he recommended some local restaurants and attractions in this quiet... More

I reserved with some trepidation after having seen some of the "terrible" reviews on trip advisor. OK people: what exactly is it that you want? You are staying in an historic home built in the 1920's on 1000+ acres of botanic gardens. The common rooms are a little musty and drafty but that is part of the charm. The guest... More

Beautiful drive up to the castle, helpful & friendly staff. The manor is well maintained and the grounds are beautifully kept. Service was excellent. The building itself is quite beautiful and the staff will regale you with ghost stories if you want something eerie checked off your list.

My husband and I like to escape on weekends to different types of properties and when this "castle" deal came up, we thought it to be an adventure. Little did we know, it would turn out to be a spooky adventure. First of all, getting to the castle proved to be quite a trek, it was way out in nowhere... More

From the drive up to the castle to the gracious staff, every part of our stay was wonderful. We took a tour before leaving and were simply in awe of the beauty and craftsmanship in every one of the main rooms. Wish we got to see some of the other guest rooms. We stayed in a gatsby room which was... More

I want to start off by saying that I have stayed here multiple times and I will stay here again, because the suites are beautiful and the grounds (the NJ Botanical Gardens) are breathtaking. There are really no other "castles" in the area, so if you want to stay in a castle in northwestern New Jersey, this is it. Parking... More
