“Beware! Flim-flam on rates”
Reviewed 6 September 2010

We booked the inn through the internet for October 2nd, one night. The transaction went through. We then received a call from the innkeeper saying that he was "working on the site' (then take it down) and tried to get us to pay $100 more for the room!!! We were very disappointed, as the reviews were positive, but that is just bad business. You don't advertise at one price, then call and raise it $100.

Stayed September 2010, travelled on business

My wife and I are retired and run this small business to make ends meet. We are apparently providing a good servise, at least based on the vast majority of reviews. We are not computer scientists and some of the reservation management programs are very complex. We ask, judge us on the quality of a stay at the Wooden Duck, not on the basis of someone trying to take advantage of a computer error.

Absolutely gorgeous. Perfect spot to get away from the busy city and noise. Pitch black at night; makes for a cozy night in. Wonderful fresh air. Short drive away from the convenient down town area

The Wooden Duck has always been an incomparably comfortable place to stay; but since Beth & Karl Krummel took over the proprietorship about five years ago, it is even more inviting. The rooms and suites are cozy and well-appointed but without the ambient frou-frou so characteristic of many B & Bs. Beth and Karl are the perfect hosts, always willing to engage in spirited conversation or to recommend restaurants or sight-seeing possibilities in the area. And Beth's incredibly delicious and generous country breakfasts are always a highlight of our stay.

Our room was spacious & comfortable. The entire house was beautifully decorated and nothing was 'off limits" to the guests. The wooded location was pastoral. We enjoyed the frequent visits from the deer. After a long day of bike riding the beautiful pool was a wonderful bonus. Our hosts were so accomodating that we felt bad when it came time to leave. The breakfasts were of "5-star" quality and I am disappointed that we failed to take advantage of the "botomless cookie jar" during our stay.
Bike trails that were the purpose of our vacation were VERY close to the Wooden Duck.
Our hosts also did a wonderful job of recommending places for a good meal at local eateries.

We had a spacious room that was clean, comfortable, cozy. Owner Beth and Karl were wonderful hosts and cooked scrumptious breakfasts. Small pool was an added plus; good for a dip since it was so hot. Location in northern NJ is good if you have an event going on in the area or you like to do outdoorsy things in the neighboring parks. Near antique shops and local minor league baseball stadium.

This was our first time at a B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We highly recommend The Wooden Duck. It far exceeded our expectations.
