I stayed at the anglers resort on saturday January 19th with my 4 year old daughter and 7 year old son. We originally planned to go camping and boating but due to very bad weather we decided to stay in a hotel. We stayed in a room with 2 beds, a kitchen complete with oven, microwave, fridge, sink and plenty of dishes, pots, pans and coffee maker. I think we paid 54 dollars including tax. Every part of the room was extremely clean, the beds were new and fresh paint thoughout. Shortly after we arived the sun went down and lightning knocked out the power in half of the town of Dunellen including the hotel. The hotel owner saw me trying to keep the kids entertained in the dark and went out and bought a wind-up flashlight for my son and his wife showed up twice with fresh candles to light the room until the power came back on around 8pm. The next day the temperature was in the 30's and they let us use a room to warm up in and eat lunch after boating on the river. We could not have asked for more gracious hosts. The tackle shop had plenty of supplies, boat rentals and a nice dock with fuel. I found out that the owners bought the property just a few months ago and have done a lot of work to make an old hotel modern and comfortable. we will be going back soon.
