After spending nearly fifteen years in a corporate marketing role, I’ve learned to be concise in transmitting the message, because the public’s attention span is short. I know this because as “the public”, my own attention span has decreased dramatically. The immediacy of technology has conditioned me, like Pavlov’s dogs, to cut to the chase and to expect the bottom line quickly.
So here it is folks: the top five reasons to book a summer getaway at the Whistling Swan Inn, in Stanhope, NJ.
- Luxurious rooms
Combining the opulence of the Victorian era with modern conveniences that our guests expect, each room is individually decorated and furnished with antiques and reproductions and exquisitely appointed with pillow-top beds or feather beds, luxury linens, high quality bath amenities, flat-paneled TVs and DVD players.
- Five-star amenities
In addition to a full country buffet breakfast, the inn has a wide array of complimentary amenities, such as WiFi, always available hospitality bar which includes soft drinks, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and other snacks, and free bikes for guests to use during their stay.
- Peaceful surroundings
Guests can enjoy a second (or third) cup of coffee on our wraparound veranda or take an afternoon nap in the two-person hammock. Our garden, with the background music of singing birds and the burbling water of the fountain, is a perfect setting to relax, refresh and reconnect.
- Plenty to Do
The New Jersey Skylands region is teeming with activities. Lake Musconetcong,
where guests can rent rowboats for fishing, is within walking distance, as is a lovely hiking and biking trail along the river. Wine lovers can have a tasting experience at the Four Sisters Winery approximately 10 miles away. The serious shopper can browse through a myriad of antique shops in Chester and Andover. … and the list goes on and on.
- Romance, romance and more romance
The Whistling Swan Inn exudes romance. Guests can enjoy a gourmet breakfast at an intimate table-for-two either in our recently redesigned dining room or on the veranda. We offer a variety of romantic packages such as hand-dipped chocolate covered strawberries and in-room massage that can enhance the experience of a “just we two” getaway.
As your thoughts turn to “getting away from it all”, you’ll find it all here at the Whistling Swan Inn.
… and so the adventures continue … join us.
