The Wooden Duck is a large, comfortable home nestled on a quiet, wooded road in the Kittatiny State Park. The first time I stayed there, I was struck by how loud the silence was. No car horns, no sirens, no noise at all. It was glorious. Karl and Beth greeted us and treated us as welcome friends and gave us full range of their home.
We walked through the woods, lazed in the living room, played board games in the family room and slept in a beautiful bedroom. We woke up the next morning to fresh coffee prepared by someone else, a gourmet breakfast cooked by someone else and the dishes washed, again, by someone else. For me, the chief cook, dishwasher and house manager, this was a very big deal. It didn't feel at all like staying at an Inn. It was even better than that. Karl and Beth make you feel you're staying as friends.
I left feeling spoiled, nurtured and nourished. When there are those days when it makes no sense at all to stay in the city, I intend to return to be greeted again by such warm and gracious people.
