“Absolutely, the most relaxing time we have ever had...”
Reviewed 31 March 2010

I highly recommend this bed & breakfast. My husband and I have traveled every year for our birthdays and anniversary. We always make sure its surprise for the birthday travel. My husband was completely shocked as we had never been to a B&B before. He left however with a big smile on his face. He was '''truly impressed'' with the comfort and intimacy of the setting. Our host and hostess were just the warmest, kindest, friendliest people one could ever wish to meet. The bed was soooo comfortable, and the fireplace adn jaccuzi in the room were an extra treat. This was a welcome change from our previous trips. I overheard my husband bragging about ''the fun he had over the weekend to his friends". I encourage everyone to try this B&B..did I mention the food was great!!!!

great place to get away. Friendly innkeepers. the Inn was beautifully decorated for the holidays.The single rooms are nice,but if you can the suites are the way to go.Have stayed here twice and look forward to returning.
Breakfast is ample and well done. The only thing that could be improved is the coffee (on lukewarm side).
Bell's Mansion down the street is Great for dinner.

Very nice B&B. Beautifully decorated. Quite neighborhood, but there is a very nice
restaurant a short walk down the street. Nice bike trail nearby.

We chose it because it was equidistant to 3 wineries, but it turned out to be so much better. It was both relaxing and energizing with a no-problems stay and a spiritually refreshing reminder of some parts of life we'd let slide. One reviewer here got hung up on an awkward door lock. Sure, they're antique, but he's SO missing the big picture. It felt like we'd stayed in our benevolent great aunt's mansion (if, that is, she was a billionaire).

Stayed in B&Bs all over Europe. This is best in NY Metro area. Innkeeper Liz was gracious and informative. Suggested great restaurant down the road. Last minute reservation to visit my son. The Rose Room was beautiful and comfortable. Loved her Saturday Dinner Dance. Attended the same internship which her innkeeping skills. Food is wonderful as Liz is a trained nutritionist. Plan to visit the next time I visit my son. Innkeeper even sent bak glasses left in room.

We stayed 2 nights in the HIgh Point Suite - very comfortable and well-appointed room. The staff was very friendly and professional. Breakfasts were extensive, lots of variety, and high in quality - we particularly enjoyed eating on the fabulous porch. Clean throughout the inn - convenient parking - helpful service - valuable advice - first class in all respects. -Bob&Myra

Checkin was fast and efficient. The room was called great meadow I believe and was very nice. We liked the steamy showers and nice robes. Had wireless access and a snack bar, cookies. Breakfast was tasty. Sussex Bike trail is fairly close.
