As a shameless celebrity hound, I always thought it would be fun to be famous. I'm talking Star Magazine famous...and not in the "fashion don't" section. Alas, it was not to be, and I've reconciled it. However, the next best thing is for the Whistling Swan Inn in Stanhope, New Jersey to appear in the news.
Recently, my New Jersey bed and breakfast inn, was featured in an online article, "Travel Tips for Passengers Sailing out of New Jersey's Cape Liberty Cruise Port".
Written by Wayne and Judy Bayliff, husband and wife photojournalists, famous themselves for their pieces on exceptional vacation getaways, the article touts us as a great place to stay if you arrive early and "prefer the private comforts of a nice B&B to the largely impersonal brand hotels". No offense big brand hotels.
During their stay at the inn several months ago, Judy took some fabulous photos, including one of a delectable strawberry breakfast confection that's a guest favorite. Her close-up of my sherry decanter makes me want to pour myself a glass even though I don't touch the stuff.
The inn is located along Interstate 80, which makes it very convenient for cruise guests to get to Bayonne and Cape Liberty easily. Wayne and Judy's article has already brought us a delightful couple from Canada who stayed with us on their way to the Caribbean.
Thank you, Wayne and Judy...now I'm famous.
...and so the adventures continue...join us.
