The Grand Old Lady on the banks of the South Branch of the Raritan River had fallen into disrepair. Steeped with history but empty for twenty years, the dilapidated structure needed a renovation miracle. In the winter of 2002, Asdal Builders of Chester, NJ took on the monumental job of renovating her back to former glory. Owner, Bill Asdal, saw the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform a piece of history into a future landmark. The restoration project went beyond standard remodeling practices and boasts the latest in energy-saving technology complete with solar panels, heat exchangers and other elements that make the Inn 100% energy self-sufficient.
