Stayed at the Colonial Inn after a bridal shower held in Historic Smithville, NJ. The Inn has rooms throughout the property. Our room was in the newest section called The Barn, located on the perimeter overlooking the "village". Beautifully decorated, excellent bedding (we had a room with 2 queens), HUGE bathroom, all spotlessly clean! It was perfect for my daughter and I. There are different room types available depending (suites, kings, etc.) You can view a number of the rooms on their website. Continental breakfast is included in the rate and you can either enjoy it in the little cafe onsite, or take it back to your room. There was a mini-fridge and coffeemaker, as well as small table & chairs in our room. Loved the electric fireplace! A perfect place to stay to enjoy the shopping, the nearby beaches and-- you are about 20 minutes north of Atlantic City! Historic Smithville is less than 10 minutes from the Garden State Parkway exit 48.
Historic Smithville is a "village" made up of little shops and restaurants, with a lake dividing it. There are paddle boats available along with a carousel and mini Steam Train. The shops offer something for everyone. You can have a quick meal at a couple of places, "Pub Grub" at Fred & Ethel's (with a full bar and beer on tap) or for elegant dining, the Smithville Inn.
The Colonial Inn and Historic Smithville are always decorated for the seasons...but Christmastime is especially beautiful! Don't miss it!
