My boyfriend and I had a blast last weekend (Labor Day). It was the perfect local get-away, far enough from Brooklyn, NY but only 1 1/2 hours away into the NJ countryside. We first walked in to the B&B and made our way to our cozy room. It was very well kept and the 2 windows offered plenty of natural light. We stayed in the "San Diego" bedroom. The bathroom has a option to turn on heat which I really enjoyed and was stocked with fresh towels, soap and shampoo. The bed was nice and plush. I slept very well and woke up to roosters the next morning which was a treat for us city folks.
Steve the host, fixed us a huge breakfast and is very accommodating as I am a vegan. We had fruit cups to start and I had a large delicious salad made from fresh veggies from the nearby farmers market. My boyfriend enjoyed his sausage and waffles with warm syrup one morning and eggs and bacon with toast the next. Our meals were a nice large portion and very fresh. My boyfriend still talks about those fluffy waffles and it's been a week later. Plus, there were plenty of knick knacks on the kitchen table that guests could help themselves to like fruit, chips and brownies.
The B&B has an outdoor pool and hot tub. The weather was nice so we were able to enjoy the pool. We really got a kick out of the roosters and goats wandering freely around outside of the pool area.
What we liked best about this B&B:
1) Location- Only 1 1/2 hours away from Port Authority Bus Terminal in NYC. We took the Transbridge bus to Lambertville, NJ and toured the area first, ran into some friends who gave us a ride to the farm which is about 15 mins away from Lambertville. We were prepared however to take a taxi approx $46 from Lambertville to the B&B. It was a very inexpensive vacation and a quick get-away, very doable without renting a car which would have been over $500 during the holiday weekend.
The B&B is very quiet even though it's on a main country road. The roadside traffic did not bother us. There is a farmer's market right on the side of the B&B in which we stocked up on fresh tomatoes, sweet peppers, corn and cucumbers.
2) Quaintness- It's filled with charming and unique antiques. Plus the house itself is an historic 1700's stone house with original pumpkin pine wood floors. We loved the variety of plants in the living room and the bamboo trees outside.
3) Hearty Morning Breakfasts
4) Steve the host- Accommodating, lively spirit and resourceful about the area.
