My wife and I had just dropped our daughter off at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and were going to start the long drive home to Massachusetts in the morning. I didn't want to do the full 11 hour drive in one shot so I checked the internet for hotels along the way. Planned on staying at one of the chains when I noticed the Whistling Swam Inn. I booked online and am I glad I did!
For a very reasonable price we got a comfortable, romantic room (with a shower for two!) in a very nice bed and breakfast inn located in a quaint NJ town. The innkeepers and staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly. There is a nice restaurant in walking distance that we took advantage of (which was great since it was a beautiful evening and I had had enough driving for the day). Back at the inn we took advantage of the shower, the comfortable bed and the DVD library for a movie. In the morning we had a nice filling and tasty breakfast outside on the wraparound porch before starting the rest of the drive home.
The Whistling Swan Inn was a perfect stop and I felt refreshed and relaxed after a single night. Will definitely stay again if I have the opportunity.
