About The Raritan Inn Bed & Breakfast


After a two-year renovation, The Raritan Inn at Middle Valley is serving the bed and breakfast traveler. While retaining all the charm of its 275-year history, the Raritan Inn has taken a quantum leap into the 21st century in serving shelter needs.

The Inn is useful to individuals traveling in this area as a reliable, clean, and convenient lodging facility. Corporate functions are held, vacationers know it as a friendly respite, and wedding parties are lodging here.




The Raritan Inn’s mission is to provide innovative, practical and top-quality service. We believe our first responsibility is to the guests who stay with us. In carrying out our day-to-day business we strive to:

  • Follow the philosophy that our customers always come first. Guests are looking for comfortable ambience with business amenities, to make for a productive stay, and we work to provide that atmosphere.
  • Create a model for energy efficiency and learning where the public can enhance their understanding of green solutions.

Commitment to innovative “green” technologies

The Raritan Inn has been featured in many articles, both for its extensive renovations and for its commitment to innovative “green” technologies and energy-saving measures.

New Jersey Skylands highlighted several NJ bed & breakfasts which were recently renovated yet retained their historical past.

The Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH), a group dedicated to accelerating the development and use of technologies that radically improve the quality, durability, energy efficiency, environmental performance, and affordability of America’s housing, covered the “green” technologies used in renovating the Inn.

Professional Remodeler magazine, one of the industry’s leading trade publications, featured the Inn as its yearly Model ReMODEL project.

Nation’s Building News, the National Association of Home Builders’ weekly newsletter, featured the Inn and its zero-energy remodeling innovations.



The Inn has been the site for many school field trips; middle-school Science Fair winners and high school science classes have toured the Inn and have seen first-hand some of the “green” technologies they had tested in their projects and classrooms.
