We recently filmed scenes from a music video at the Raritan Inn. Both the service (the innkeeper was amazing) and the beauty of the inn and property exceeded our very high expectations. We’d highly recommend the Raritan Inn as a prospective filming location and for a restful stay in a picturesque setting.

Thank you for allowing the Raritan Inn to be a part of making this amazing music video. I really enjoyed hearing the song and can't wait to see the final cut All the best as Dustin makes his way as a country music star!

I was lucky enough to stay at the Inn while we completed a habitat enhancement project on the section of the South Branch of the Raritan River that flows through the Inn's property. The restoration and enhancement to the river now matches the restoration of the property. The history, artifacts, and restoration of the Inn were incredible. We enjoyed the...

Lance, What a neat friendship that has developed! Even though the distance between Montana and New Jersey is great, you're always welcome to come back and sit on the back porch and listen to some down-home country music. Watch for me in Montana! It was a pleasure to serve you and the rest of the guys! Best, John

Relaxing long weekend for our honeymoon - caught up on some much needed rest, walked along the Columbia Trail to the Ken Lockwood Gorge, and went out to some local eateries.

My daughter found this wonderful B & B in Califon Nj that was amazing. We arrived on Friday and the place is magnificent. This is amazing being it had been abandon for over 20 years. The restoration they did gives each room it's own bathroom so no sharing which is great. The grounds are beautiful and there's an old barn...

My family recently traveled to New Jersey for a funeral, and our previous experience with the only hotel within 10 miles was beyond awful. Terrifying, even. So, this time we were cautiously optimistic about the Raritan Inn, which wasn't open last time we were there. We arrived late to a wonderfully rustic, restored house, all rooms are highly upgraded, the...

Booked a Sunday night in the Warren Room ("the honeymoon suite") based on the great reviews here.

My husband and I stayed at the Raritan Inn while in NJ for a number of family celebrations. It is a very interesting historic home that has been beautifully remodeled and brought up to date.

We could not have been happier with the Raritan Inn as the venue for our September 2011 wedding! The barn and surrounding grounds are absolutely perfect for an intimate, laid-back wedding. The premises are a blank slate that you can transform to match any wedding style. Bill and Marcia were amazing throughout the entire planning process. You never would have...

“We stayed in the Morris room, which faces the backyard, which makes it quiet, and gets morning sun.”

“From what I could gather, all rooms are wonderful. We stayed in The Warren, but our companions were in the Hunterdon and had an exceedingly good experience. We were told that the Owner had denim insulation put in for noise abatement, and the windows seem to be of superior quality. The temperature went down to about 5 degrees that night, and we were quite comfortable -- so much so that we did not turn the little stove on.”
