We stayed for one night at the Raritan Inn and it was lovely. The home was beautiful and peaceful...a lovely escape from NYC. We rode our bikes from Morristown to Califon and happily stored our bikes in the barn. John, the Innkeeper was wonderful and cooks a delicious breakfast! We look forward to returning.

I am so glad you were able to spend some time in the country away from the business of the city. What a perfect day to ride your bikes and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature along the way, even when it included climbing a few hills! Thank you for sharing your story with us.

We recently filmed scenes from a music video at the Raritan Inn. Both the service (the innkeeper was amazing) and the beauty of the inn and property exceeded our very high expectations. We’d highly recommend the Raritan Inn as a prospective filming location and for a restful stay in a picturesque setting.

“We stayed in the Morris room, which faces the backyard, which makes it quiet, and gets morning sun.”

“From what I could gather, all rooms are wonderful. We stayed in The Warren, but our companions were in the Hunterdon and had an exceedingly good experience. We were told that the Owner had denim insulation put in for noise abatement, and the windows seem to be of superior quality. The temperature went down to about 5 degrees that night, and we were quite comfortable -- so much so that we did not turn the little stove on.”

“The Warren Room is large and roomy with a beautiful bath. However, it would have been nice to have had a second chair, so that two people can sit and read.”
