Wooden Duck Bed & Breakfast
Table Of Contents
Nestled among the rolling hills of rural Sussex County, New Jersey, The Wooden Duck Bed & Breakfast is an oasis of country pleasures. From the moment guests turn onto the quiet lane and winding drive leading to the inn, they are transported into a world of natural beauty and gracious hospitality.
Wildlife abounds throughout the 10 acres of open fields and woodlands encompassing this charming mini-estate. The Horseless Carriage House, circa 1978, contains the Pintail, Wood and Old Squaw guest rooms. Behind the main house, a brick patio, flower garden, and in-ground swimming pool invite guests to step outdoors and enjoy their picturesque surroundings while providing a lovely spot for sunbathing or just plain relaxing!
A hearty country breakfast is served in the dining room each morning, accompanied by juice, milk, and hot coffee or tea. The menu varies daily and begins with home-baked tea bread, coffee cake, or muffins, depending on the day. Fruit and breakfast meat, as well as French toast, pancakes, or a delectable egg casserole, complete the offering. Complimentary coffee, tea, soda, snacks, trail mix, and homemade chocolate chip cookies are also available anytime in the guest pantry.
Whether evening temperatures call for relaxing in air-conditioned comfort or snuggling up by the double-hearth fireplace, guests can unwind at the end of the day in our elegantly appointed Living Room. If they would like to stay in touch with the outside world, they can access complimentary, high-speed wireless service on the guest computer in the Game Room or with their own computer throughout the building. An extensive video library, games, puzzles and an assortment of reading materials are also available.
