“This house exceeds all expectations. This is hands down the best Airbnb we have ever stayed in. Not only is Stephen an incredible host who goes above and beyond for his guests, but the property is truly mesmerizing. The photos are great but they are nothing compared to this place in person!! We actually eloped in the backyard as we had to reschedule our large wedding celebration to the following May due to the pandemic. We still had such a beautiful ceremony and this place is just magical. The backyard is truly incredible and the rushing water of the raritan and the gorgeous gardens make this space so relaxing and beautiful. The indoor space is great too and the house is full of character. Stephen also makes sure his guests are fully equipped for a great stay! Plenty of fire starting materials, board games, fishing rods, breakfast and coffee. There are endless possibilities. If you’re still reading this review- you really should just book your stay already! You will be so happy that you did. This place will always be special to us. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much!”

“My husband and I were in town for my best friend's wedding and found this lovely apartment within 15 minutes from the venue. Norma and Harry were super nice and allowed us to book with them well in advance to reserve their place for this event. We were very thankful. This apartment has a beautiful rustic touch with everything we could need for a weekend and was perfect. Even my make-up artist for the wedding complimented on it. Norma and Harry came over after we were settled to introduce themselves and show us how to work the pellet stove. Very lovely and kind people and such warm hospitality. Even welcomed us with some snacks and a note upon arrival. The area is very nice and quiet too. Perfect for sleeping in if you have time. We very much enjoyed our stay there and wish we could have stayed longer.”

“The cabin waa a perfect stop for a road trip we wanted to break into two parts. Definitely recommend getting in earlier in the day, but the host was kind enough to leave the light on for us. Ammenties are great, place is great, our puppy loved hiking in the woods and we has a restful sleep in the cute cabin. We cant wait to come back!”
