“Still one of the best... ANYWHERE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

We came back to the RoseMary Inn for my wife's birthday, as we did last year. The saddest part of the trip was that we let a whole year slip away before getting back to this wonderful place! Our room was wonderful—classic appointments, modern amenities, great view, and as clean as you will ever find.

See my previous review from March 6, 2011 for more details about the rooms!

Elaine and Theo are wonderful, charming hosts and their attention to detail and care for guests is evident from the moment you walk through the door.

Room Tip: you can't choose a bad room here... they are all wonderful!

My husband and I spent a night here in the Beach Room, hoping to get away one last time together before our first baby is born. We are so happy we chose the RoseMary Inn!! Our room was meticulously clean, super comfy, and so romantic! We were able to choose a movie to watch from their collection, there were snacks available any time, and there are two big books put together of activities and restaurants in the area (with menus and all) or they had plenty of suggestions ready for us too if we asked. Everything about this place shows that the owners really do care deeply about the Inn and their guests. And my husband and I can't stop raving about how delicious the breakfast was!! Definitely the perfect place to get away and relax. Highly recommended! (By the way, we went to the Lakota Wolf Preserve, which is only a few minutes away, and that was really cool too!)

Just returned home from a 2 night stay at the RoseMary Inn in Knolton Township in western New Jersey. The Inn is located near the Delaware Water Gap and Interstate 80 yet far enough away that we could not tell that we were near anything urban. It is a B&B and the breakfasts were excellent. The place is decorated beautifully and my wife totally enjoyed discussing decorations with our hostess. We took a great hike on the Appalachan Trail just over the river in Pennsylvania. Each day our hotess baked cookies that were left out for our enjoyment. They also had an assortment of goodies that were available for the taking.
It was a very nice stay and we're sure to return maybe in the summer.

Room Tip: Thet have various sized rooms each a little different. Our room was the largest with a hot tub with...

I stayed there this weekend with my girlfriend and we had a terrific time. The rooms were comfortable and well kept, the food was excellent and the grounds were picturesque. I highly recommend staying at the RoseMary Inn. We will be sure to go back.

I won a lot of points with family members for finding this gem nestled in the woods near the Water Gap. Eleven of us stayed here, filling up all 5 guest rooms for my father-in-law's 90th birthday celebration. It was perfect. We had use of all the common areas, selected our own music, controlled all the thermostats -- it was like home, only better! Elaine and Theo rearranged the living room furniture so we could play Pictionary, and reconfigured the dining tables so we had one nice long one. (We could have done without the table, though -- this place is so immaculate we could have eaten off the floor!) They do not serve dinner, so we brought it in, and that worked just fine. Tastefully decorated, very up-to-date and fresh feeling. Bathrooms are especially luxurious. Breakfast was top notch, although if we had one complaint it was that they fed us too much! Beach Room has great view of pond and sunset; Wheeler room on first floor is ideal for those who might have trouble with steps.

Room Tip: Beach Room is large and has two exposures, with view of pond, sunset and horses. But the decor in th...

What an incredible find. Absolutely wonderful and attentive hosts. Beautifully decorated...down
to the finest details. Spotlessly clean, yet so warm and inviting. Totally relaxing atmosphere. We stayed in the "Heiss" room. Exquisite modern bathroom specifically made for couples. Extremely comfortable bed/linens. Some of the best homemade cookies I've ever had...and
an unbelievable, served 3 course breakfast in the morning. All top notch. Thank you so much, Theo and Elaine! We are already thinking of reasons or occasions to return.

We just came back from a one-night stay in The Beach Room at The RoseMary Inn. Our room was clean, comfortable and charming, but yet so modern. It has a lovely bathroom with a large shower, double vanity, private water closet and a most relaxing air tub. It is evident that the lovely owners have truly invested a lot, both financially and emotionally, into designing, building and operating this inn. They have a little kitchen area for guests to grad a snack or beverage at all hours. Such a nice touch! We had a delicious, well presented dinner at Ellia's just minutes from the inn and later enjoyed a concert at The Historic Blairstown Theatre...also, nearby. Unfortunately, we did not have breakfast at the Inn, but I'm sure that would have been thoughtful and delicious, too.
