This was our second time at The Whistling Swan and once again it was absolutely magical. We stayed here last March for our 20th anniversary and fell in love with the romantic charm that is in every detail here. Walking in the front door of The Swan transports you to another time and place - serene and peaceful. The common...

Just returned from a fabulous "stay-cation" at the Whistling Swan. Everything was fantastic, from the service, to the room, to the breakfasts. It was a perfect location for a little R&R and to get some time away from the kids.

My significant other and I wanted a quiet, romantic few days together to celebrate our 5-year anniversary the last week in October. I Googled "romantic getaways in New Jersey," and when I read the Whistling Swan Inn's web page, I knew this was exactly what I was looking for. We are a couple in our mid-50s, and neither of us...

Thank you so much for the kind words. It was delightful having you both as my guests; I particularly loved talking about Alabama as well as Milton's breakfast witticisms. We look forward to having you come again in the Spring. The water feature will be completed, and the veranda is always the perfect place to relax. So glad we made...

My wife and I stayed there the first weekend in October. The inn is beautifully maintained and managed by Ros and her husband. She welcomed us as we arrived and showed us around the common areas. The snack area is well stocked with soda, water, an ice maker, some sherry if you like. The living room has a player piano...

My wife gave me a gift certificate for The Whistling Swan last Christmas, and I decided to add a night and get some R&R, hoping to catch some early Garden State foliage. We were greeted by Roz, the innkeeper, given a tour, shown to our room and were delighted to find we had two baths en suite plus a jacuzzi...

We just stayed 2 nights at the Whistling Swan Inn in the Great Meadows room. It was a great Bed and Breakfast and a lovely, spacious room with a bay window and tons of natural light. The fairly new owners, Roz and Tom, are doing a great job with the Inn. They are making improvements including a newly paved parking...
