Nestled in the beautiful Skylands region of New Jersey, the house now known as the Whistling Swan Inn was built in 1905 by the Justice of Peace, Daniel Best for his wife, Sarah. After passing through six families, this wonderful old house was restored to its turn-of-the century Victorian splendor and converted to a Bed and Breakfast in 1985.
We have kept the flavor of a vintage family home from a friendly welcome and refreshments at arrival to a sumptuous breakfast in our dining room or on our pillared porch.
Whatever the season, a myriad of activities awaits you in the Skylands…New Jersey’s best kept getaway secret!
Stroll in our Victorian garden or just relax on the veranda, reading the morning paper. Spend the afternoon enjoying the highlights of the Skylands region; Waterloo Village, Lake Hopatcong, Chester crafts, antiquing, horseback riding, hiking and biking in the State parks. After a busy day enjoy a quiet time … swing on the porch swing, take a nap in the side-yard hammock, or sit in our parlor and enjoy pleasant conversations with new-found friends.
Later, enjoy fine dining at one of the Skylands gourmet restaurants, some within walking distance of the Inn. Highlight your evening at a local entertainment spot or simply take a stroll and enjoy the quiet. Once the evening is over, snuggle up with your special someone and enjoy a glass of sherry and homemade cookies next to a crackling fire in our cozy guest parlor. When ready to retire, sink into your queen sized featherbed and fall asleep to a movie from our video library.
