I stayed at The Tamaracks for a night, I was in the area for a business event the next morning. Cate greeted me outside and walked me in. She had me pull my car right up to the door so that I didn't have to carry my bags more then a few feet. They really did an amazing job renivating the old building over the last 12 years. Its a perfect blend of what was left of the structure and what they added to complete it. Its decorated perfectly...warm & inviting. I felt comfortable immediately! Cate showed me around and gave me the history of the property. When I asked for a room in my price range with a balcony instead of the room my office booked for me, she didnt hesitate to show me two rooms and let me pick. One room is cuter then the next so it was a tough decision! I stayed in the Stone Rows room. This room doesn't have a tub to soak in but I dodn't mind. I wanted the balcony instead. The room was great and my bed was phenominal! Cate & Tom are such nice people...Cate let me borrow her iron & sent fresh baked cookies to my room around 7pm. I'm disappointed I wasnt able to stay for breakfast as I had to leave early for work. Thanks Cate & Tom! You have a wonderful place!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Originally built as a stone farmhouse at the turn of the 19th century, the Tamaracks Country Villa was later absorbed in 1909 into a European-style stucco “castle”, locally known as The Colby Mansion in Sussex County’s Skylands district.Secluded on 5 1/2 acres surrounded by gardens and woodlands, creek and lake, the inn was the dream home of a self-styled architect/entrepreneur and his internationally known artist-wife.While preserving much of the original interior spaces, the seven suites with private ensuite baths, gas fireplaces, and sitting/work areas, are all handcrafted rooms tastefully and artistically appointed. Some have soaking tubs, two person showers, and private balconies. Common areas abound on both floors of the inn providing spaces for guests to relax or visit with others and also for small social gatherings (weddings, club meetings, showers) or business meetings. The first floor is completely accessible and the entire building has a sprinkler system for our guests’ safety.A complimentary full breakfast is offered each morning in the dining room. With its open hearth, bake oven, and 12″ beams cut from the property, the dining room reflects the early Dutch settlers’ heritage.Come for a visit. We would love to share our inn with you. ... more less
