Whistling Swan Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Stanhope B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The old Victorian house on Main Street in Stanhope N.J. greets you with a wrap around porch . My room was on the third floor , private with a huge slip tub . The bed comfortable making the entire stay and experience peaceful and relaxing . The Whistling Swan is in walking distance to downtown Stanhope and the train station the next town over . The Stanhope House down the street host's a variety of great music and casual atmosphere . There are hiking trails, history and horseback riding to explore very close to the Inn . The Whistling Swan also provides free bikes to use to get around town . The Inn keeper and staff extremely friendly and helpful . The room had free wifi connection and plenty of natural light . The breakfast the next day held me the rest of the day in travels 's with fresh blueberry pancakes , quiche and abundance of fresh fruit . Large varieties of tea and coffee were also available any time of day or evening . If your a foodie this is your place to stay . I stayed only for one day in the winter , the fireplace in the room and just general feeling of the Whistling Swan made it a home away from home . I will be back for sure feeling the prices for the room and complete experience very well worth it .

Stayed one night in Walnut Valley room with jacuzzi and fireplace. Was quiet, romantic, clean and very homey. Bed was very comfortable. Decor in all bedrooms were beautifully done. Suites were nice size, rooms much smaller but cozy. Innkeepers were friendly and professional. Highly recommend and will definitely go again. Had dinner at Ron's Landmark nearby. Good italian food, nice portions.

Room Tip: Regular rooms are on small side. My opinion, suites are more comfortable for couple, but all rooms...

I stayed three nights in the High Point suite. The rooms all have amazing character (I can't wait to come back and try some new ones) and are very comfortable. The breakfasts are lovely, the amenities are fantastic, and the staff is very helpful. I decided to splurge on a massage my first full day here, and the masseuse, Susan Crozier, was so skilled and friendly and just plain amazing that I booked her for a second massage the next day, too. It was the perfect complement to a wonderfully relaxing mini-vacation. I can't recommend the inn (or Susan!) highly enough.

Stayed in a small suite with a jacuzzi tub, room was beautiful and comfortable. The owners were really nice and helpful, they showed us around and made reservations for us for dinner at a nearby restaurant (which was also fantastic). Clean, comfortable and friendly hosts. Breakfast also looked awesome.

Lovely accommodations, hospitable, perfect for couples or travelers or business folk, anyone...Very clean and homely in every aspect...Great scenic areas and lakes nearby...plenty to do and see....Ros and Tom ensure that there are always DELICIOUS COOKIES and tea, coffee, soda, etc available in their parlor 24 hours a day. Other snacks available as well, but the COOKIES are the highlight...Comfortable tables to sit at and relax in the evening with warm beverages....LOVELY BREAKFAST, fresh granola, bacon, bread, juices, ROS is very accomodating with what you prefer...will cater to your dietary needs and morning schedule. Delicious fresh fruit, pancakes, one could not ask for more....Best part of stay is the enduring HOSPITALITY from ROS and TOM....a true credit to the B & B community....These innkeepers are PROS in every way with what they do and offer. Many thanks again, Edward

This was an excellent place to stay. Everything was very clean and well-kept. The service was phenomenal and very personable! Would come back again for a weekend getaway. The innkeeper was extremely hospitable and made sure we were accommodated to the fullest extent.

We were on our way home from Pennsylvania and decided to stop for the night at this beautiful B&B. I asked if they could accommodate a gluten free person and they said they had someone else there who was also gluten free. Our room was just beautiful. We had 2 bathrooms, king size bed, jacuzzi for two and a sitting room. Our bed was so comfortable - I slept like a log. The next morning Tom created a wonderful potato crust frittata. It had tomatoes, sliced potatoes, cheeses and was really delicious. There was sausages and a pumpkin french toast for those who are not gluten free - cereal and fruit plate, also. My husband had the french toast and said it was delicious. Rosalind offered to make me gluten free oatmeal but when I left I was full. Whether you are gluten free or a "normal" person be sure to stop at this B&B. You will be happy that you did!

Room Tip: Any room that you decide to stay in will be just fine. All of them are beautiful and it is very qui...
