Things to Do

Whether you want to relax, during your stay, or explore the local area, there are plenty of ways to spend your time.

We suggest working on one of the puzzles in our lounge area, or reading that best-seller you’ve been talking about for months. If the weather is nice, you can relax in the gazebo, walk the Inn grounds or make a cozy fire at our outdoor firepit. We even have marshmallows for toasting!

Thinking of venturing out? Of course, you’ll want to visit Laurita Winery, 1.5 miles down the road. But if you’re looking to explore the local area, there are beautiful parks, farms, antiques, flea markets, amusement parks, golf courses and even the Jersey Shore!

Don’t forget, we can pack a picnic lunch for you to take wherever you go.
(additional costs will apply).

Plan activities for your stay using Visit NJ http://www.visitnj.org/ which will offer local happenings to enjoy. For information about local Jersey Fresh farms, u-pick farms, farmers markets, roadside markets, visit Jersey Fresh http://www.jerseyfresh.nj.gov/.

No matter what you choose, you’ll leave feeling refreshed and renewed with memories that last a lifetime.
