My wife and I were guests of Denise and Peter Burghart at their wonderful property, Holly Thorn House, in Whitehouse Station, NJ, from June 19th to the 25th. What a delightful experience it was. Our room was very comfortable in every regard. To me, when on the road and traveling, nothing is more important than a good bed, and a... More

Denise is an excellent innkeeper and maintains a very nice B&B! I booked in when I wasn't able to get a room at one of my company's preferred hotels. Price was just a few dollars higher but had a much better experience that what I normally get at one of the larger chain hotels. Stayed in the Blue Room -... More

The hosts are incredibly welcoming and gracious. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are immaculate. I highly recommend and plan on staying there when I travel to NJ for business! I arrived late and was welcomed with a glass of wine and had my luggage carried to my room for me. So nice after a long day of travel!

My normal hotel was booked out, and my company's travel web site offered the Holly Thorn House as an option. It was close to my client site, and I was intrigued. I will definitely come back. Denise is very hospitable and accommodating. For a road warrior like me, it is great to feel like you are staying in a really... More

We stayed at The Holly Thorn House for it's proximity to the Ryland Inn, where we were having our anniversay dinner. The atmosphere at this Bed and Breakfast was warm and friendly. The breakfast was good and plentyful.

It's been about 3 years since I visited The hollythorn and I' glad to report that standards haven't slipped at all. Denise takes care of her guests like close family - refreshing in this day of soulless hotels and anonymous guests ... The personal touch of asking what I'd like for tomorrows breakfast every day so that Denise could go... More

Last weekend, my wife and I had to go to Bridgewater, NJ, for a family event that had just arisen. A snow storm was hitting the Northeast. My wife called the Holly Thorn House for a room and left a voicemail asking if it were open, given the weather. Within the hour, the owner, Denise, was back to us and... More

Refreshing, feels like coming home. All the luxuries of 4 star hotel mixed with first class service and personal touch. Refreshing for business travelers seeking alternative 'personalized service' Lovely relaxing setting in quiet neighborhood, close to businesses with easy access to restaurants and other facilities

Like some of the previous reviews, I came across this hotel when looking for accomodation near our business in Bridgewater. All I can say is that I wished I had found it earlier as I found the hotel a great place to stay. Per the title, it is B&B style run by the owners (nice couple Peter & Denise). Definitely... More
