The Holly Thorn House is a cozy microcosm in a sea of franchise hotels. I feel like home when I am there, but with better antiques. Denise is warm and friendly and takes great pains to be sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. Besides the choice of five uniquely decorated rooms, breakfast is a blessing of freshly... More

Great beds and room temperature. I loved Denise. She was very friendly and helpful. I really liked the heated floors downstairs; the perfect way to enjoy breakfast. I got there late so I didn't get to really enjoy the area but the inn was very homey and welcoming.

The location is easy to find and provides a nice setting for any occasion. Whether you want a romantic getaway, family retreat or even vacation with friends the Holly Thorn... More

Found Holly Thorn B&B recommended on our corporate travel web site and thrilled this is an option to comfort amidst a biz trip. Rooms are relaxing and private, activities available if interested in being social, breakfast made to order "whatever you'd like" = delicious, and overall Denise's hospitality and attention to every need is amazing. Highly recommend and will definitely... More

Stayed at Holly Thorn as part of a wedding party. We found it welcoming, comfortable and nicely appointed. Denise was a wonderful hostess and the rooms were comfortable. There were plenty of large common areas for gathering including a pool table and card table for gaming in the evening. Breakfast was delicious and it was easy to get a good... More

What a difference a quality place to stay makes. I had stayed in a dump in NY the prior night and just wanted a comfortable bed on the way home (needed to break up a 500 mile trip). The holly Thorn House owners (Denise and Peter) were great. The accomodati0ons were fantastic and they even threw a couple of adult... More

Holly Thorn House is just what we needed for a weekend get away. Denise gave us great food suggestions, great experience ideas and a yummy breakfast before we took off. Our room was perfect. The house was spacious. The game room was a plus! We used the Wifi, the flat screen tv, and went to the lake nearby. I'll be... More

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
