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. The building and rooms are well kept, clean and beautiful. The breakfast and snacks are excellent, eating on the front porch is a bonus in the warm weather. Peaceful, quiet and superb is...

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! Honestly though, I could not have asked for a more comfortable and pleasant experience than what my boyfriend and I were treated to this...

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...

Little pricey but great fun for a special occasion. Stayed in the Walnut Room with jacuzzi. Clean, beautiful and spacious. Roz is wonderful and the breakfast is worth the trip. Would probably stay in the next room category down but was not available the night we went. Would like to return again and explore the area.
