We were very pleased to find a nice place to stay in this area, because we need to visit family there, and there is very little in the way of hotels. This is a very nice option.

We were looking for a place to stay in northwest Jersey for one night and found The Wooden Duck on the web. What a great find. It is a wonderful country house that is warm and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful in fall colors and you get to enjoy that view as you enjoy a tasty breakfast. Karl has devised a squirrel proof bird feeder for additional entertainment with breakfast.

There were many places to sit, read, or talk. Our room was large and spotless, with a sofa , tv and wine glasses! The bed was very comfortable with just the right amount of covers.

A state park with hiking trails is across the road. Lafayette Village which is close by has lots of shopping and antiques.

Our only regret was we stayed just one night.

My partner, Kim, and I had a wonderful trip to see the fall leaves of NJ at the Wooden Duck in NJ. The leaves have just begun to turn and should be beautiful in the coming weeks. The Inn was very modern and clean, nothing like some of the musty old inns we have been to. The hospitality was wonderful and the owners and staff were very accomodating. Breakfast was fabulous. Sheradon's on the Lake had a very diverse menu and gorgeous views of the lake and fall leaves. JC's was a great steak place in Newton. We really enjoyed Space Farms and hiking the numerous trails...

We had a wonderful weekend get away in this pristine inn. The owners Beth and Karl greeted us with a smile and their warmth resonated throughout... Set back off of a country road, near hiking and biking trails and a charming town with both upscale and casual restaurants yet only 50 minutes away from home in central New Jersey! We enjoyed the romantic fireplace in our room and reading the morning paper on our balcony. Great morning coffee and country breakfast as well! A lovely stay, we hope to return! Beth & Bill

My husband and I were looking for a quiet, cozy and romantic place to celebrate our anniversary. The Wooden Duck B&B exceeded our expectations. Owner Karl Krummel immediately made us feel welcome, and along with his wife Beth served up a delicious, filling breakfast in the morning. The lovely, well-maintained property is in a quiet country location...we even saw a doe walk past our window. The room itself was immaculate and had every amenity we expected -- and some we didn't, from the luxurious robes hanging in the closet to the fragrant bath salts at the edge of the huge, 2-person tub to the thick, fluffy towels. Although we have no control over the other guests, we were pleased that they were quiet and courteous. We've had far too many otherwise pleasant hotel stays elsewhere ruined by loud, obnoxious guests.

The room turned out to be much smaller than it appears in the website photo, which made the $259 (plus tax) fee a tad too pricey. However, the location, amenities, food and outstanding service make the cost well worth the stay. We'll definitely be back and highly recommend The Wooden Duck with no hesitation.
