“Wonderful B & B”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

We had a fabulous stay at the Whistling Swan Inn. The accommodations were perfect and our breakfast was excellent. Our Inn keepers were most helpful in providing us with dining options. We aso found a lovely herb farm and winery through the Inn. We would highly recommend te Whistling Swan Inn.

We had a wonderful time! The house was beautiful and service was excellent! Rosalind, the innkeeper was a great hostess. We had some great conversation. Along with a delicious breakfast, she also offers coffee, tea, drinks, snacks and homemade chocolate chip cookies and brownies to her guests all day throughout your stay. I was very impressed! I've stayed in numerous b&b's but never was offered so many drinks and snacks at no charge. I would highly recommend this inn and hope to visit again.

We wanted to spend some quality time together, hiking, resting, exploring some historical sites in the New York/ New Jersey area.
As for our base, 'The Wistling Swan', we could not have made a better choice:
the innkeepers' hospitality, the rooms, the breakfast: just wonderful!

Do spend a couple of days at the Stanhope 'Whistling Swan Inn' and explore the gorgeous Skyland's region of New Jersey!

My girlfriend and I did a weekend evening together at the Whistling Swan over President's Weekend. I couldn't say enough pleasant things about this property. It sits discreetly in a small neighborhood where there isn't much to do. This is perfect, all we wanted to do was just enjoy some us time. The bed was huge and comfortable, the price was appropriate, the jetted tub was perfect, and the room was quaint. The breakfast was quick, unique, and delicious. We were greeted with a smile, and sent away with one, as well. Excellent Service!

Booked through Expedia where it said there were 4 rooms still available. Today the Inn called to say they were sold out. We booked a room on Friday for Saturday night. Last-minute, but I expected Expedia to have this figured out. I was wrong.

The place seems nice, but don't risk a late reservation through Expedia.

Room Tip: Book through the Inn directly. Don't trust Expedia for a last minute booking. May apply beyond...

This was an unfortunate turn of events, and this guest was very gracious and understanding about the confusion. I'm hoping he will give us an opportunity to demonstrate our quality, service and hospitality.

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away for a night. I researched B&B's and came across the Whistling Swan Inn in New Jersey. What a beautiful place it was. The surrounding area is so quiet. This place is nestled within a quiet residental area. Breakfast was wonderful. We ate on the veranda and enjoyed the quite and beautiful surroundings. The innkeeper was very friendly and made us feel we belong. We took a walk to Main Street and found this little Italian Restaurants called Carmines. good food. I would highly recommend this B&B

To cut to the chase, there isn't a whole lot to do in the immediate area of the B and B but, there is plenty within driving distance. We stayed for one night on a Saturday in July and were greeted by the innkeeper right away when we got there. Our room (tranquility) was ready early so we were able to check in around 1 instead of 2. The complimentary beverage and snack station was well stocked (including fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and brownies) and helped add to the "right at home" feel of the place. There is also a computer in the same room if you need that. They have a DVD library as well as an actual library if want to relax and stay in. Our room was very clean and the claw foot tub was a nice treat. Breakfast out on the large wrap around porch was delicious, a mix of continental and homemade food. Overall I would recommend the inn, and in fact already have to some friends.

Room Tip: Tranquility is on the far end of the house so the quietest. The roof does come in on some funny angl...
