The owner knew from our reservations and my subsequent e mail that we were a WEDDING party. My husband and son were dressed for a wedding as was I and one of the bridesmaids was with us. She has only 9 rooms and our party had reserved 5 of them. As weddings go the reception finished early so the first...

This unfortunate set of circumstances could have been avoided if the late check-in procedure had been followed. We ask guests checking in after 9:00 pm to do a self-check. It is not unusual for guests to need a late check-in, and the confirmation letter the guest received gave instructions on how to self-check. It is true that I met the...

Stayed here for a one night getaway for our anniversary. Had no idea where Stanhope was located, but it wasn't far from home, and the inn looked beautiful on-line. Upon driving down the street, I got a bit nervous since it's located on a modest residential street amongst ordinary homes. However, the inn stands out from the neighborhood as a...

My girlfriend and I have stayed in several east coast B and Bs and Inns and most had either the rooms, the food or the location that I enjoyed. In the case of the Whistling Swan Inn, I enjoyed all three. We booked the Stillwater Mini Suite which was well decorated and maintained. Taller guests should be aware that this...

We stayed for 2 nights at the Whispering Swan for a nearby wedding. Rosalind was a very gracious host and our room was great- pretty without being fussy, very clean and most importantly, a really comfortable bed. Breakfast was on the large porch and it was delicious, especially the pumpkin French toast. I would highly recommend a stay here, it...

While visiting my family in N.J. I always stay at the Whistling Swan, because there is no better place to stay! The Innkeepers are wonderful and accommodating.

As a beginner to bed and breakfasts, I am grateful to have stayed at the Whistling Swan first, so I know how high to raise the standards for all of my future stays at other facilities!

This was our first time staying at a B&B and totally not disappointed! My husband and I spend 2 nights at Whistling Swan in late February.

The Whistling Swan is a true Victorian lady set along a quiet street where each house has a porch and one can easily imagine a summer's evening with folks walking home from work or a Sunday morning as families walked to the nearby churches long ago. Roz, the innkeeper, is friendly and gave us lots of history about the inn...
