What a great place for a stay in the country! The inn is beautiful, well-appointed, homey and upscale at the same time. Innkeeper Marcia is an absolute pleasure, and her breakfast was delicious. The rooms are very nicely decorated, comfortable and cozy with ample space. The inn is situated next to the Raritan River and easily accessible to the Columbia... More

What a great place, quiet rural setting with owners and staff that really care for their guests. The Inn is well kept, very clean and the breakfast was out of this world. A great place to get away from the hustle and bustle.

We really enjoyed our stay. It's the best of both worlds -- an 18th century foundation, a 19th century structure, and a 21st century remodel with a truly revolutionary heating and cooling system. The bed was comfy, the shower is fun, and breakfast was delicious.

If you are looking for a place to stay in this area The RaritanInn is it! Worth every penny and the owners are fantastic. I am not a huge fan of B&B's and the Raritan Inn has changed my mind! We ahve now stayed in the Huterdon and Morris room, the website description of the room is very accurate.

What a fabulous place for long time friends to gather together! A few of Bob's college friends decided it was time so we came to this pristine place to relax, reconnoiter and recreate. Bicycling & Fly Fishing were great fun too. The Inn is a masterpiece of restoration at its best. Comfortable and beautifully appointed, it provided a place for... More

I think the staff may have changed from some earlier reviews. My brother got married here a few weeks ago. They wanted a casual wedding and the barn was just what you'd picture if that was the aesthetic you were going for. Cute little signs, white string lights, a brook running next to the property, a nice tent and a... More

We stayed here when we sold our house nearby. Owners were friendly and very accommodating. We could stay in the room until our taxi pick up late afternoon. They even offered to take me join them for dinner when my husband was on a business trip. We could chose the time of breakfast every day. We spend a few pleasant... More

We made reservations through the Raritan Inn website and the manager handled our requests for special diet requirements. Our experience was seamless. We specified an arrival time and were greeted and shown this Historical Property from top to bottom, including facts about the original property and owners, specifics on the restoration, how to operate the in-room gas stoves and the...

We stayed at the Raritan Inn for two nights while visiting relatives in the area. It is a lovely setting and a beautifully restored home. Often in the case of B & B's the decoration is over the top...too many knickknacks and too much calico. This is not the case with this house...the decor has been done with a deft... More

Thanks for the feedback - it is always helpful and always acted upon by our staff. We should have done a better job showing you how to adjust the heat on the 2nd floor, or even made sure you knew how to operate the parlor stove for instant warmth. Our apologies as well for the lack of room freshening that... More
