A grand presence along the banks of the Raritan River.
From pre-colonial New Jersey through its grand Victorian era to its storied restoration of today, the Inn has maintained a grand presence along the banks of the South Branch of the Raritan River. This property, the site of farming, peach basket production and family living has been transformed through careful restoration into an elegant and unique setting, serving discerning overnight guests and hosting memorable events.
A storied history and careful restoration.
When the Asdal family purchased the property in 2002, the stately house and barn were dilapidated, vacant and almost beyond restoration. Bill Asdal’s remodeling company took on the monumental job of renovating the home back to her former glory, a once-in-a-lifetime project that transformed a piece of New Jersey history into a national landmark.
The restoration project resulted in a property that is 100% energy self-sufficient with no fossil fuels on site, powered instead with solar panels and geothermal energy.
Bill continues to have a passion for history, old homes and the home building profession. He has recently restored several more historical buildings in the area immediately surrounding the Inn and is always happy to give impromptu tours and share his excitement over the historical importance of this area of Hunterdon County.
Owners and Staff
The property is managed by Marcia Asdal who is adept at making guests feel at home and relaxed. She offers calm insight into successful events and gives hosts the confidence that they have chosen the perfect venue, one that will reflect their personality and vision.
Bill wears many hats at the Inn these days - chief tour guide, groundskeeper, handyman and frequent breakfast visitor. He also takes great pride in the beauty of the South Branch of the Raritan River that runs along the property. This section of the river was completely restored in the summer of 2012 and the results created a world-class habitat for catch and release fly fishing.
Our wonderful staff will make your stay memorable with their warm hospitality and delicious breakfasts. They each have years of experience in the hospitality industry and take pride in being part of the continuing history of the Inn.
