Dream Weekends: Woolverton Inn

A romantic hideaway.

Stockton, New Jersey

Romance in New Jersey? The Woolverton Inn is a 1792 stone manor house with lovely new cottages, afternoon tea, the tinkle of sheeps' bells, and fine dining just minutes away in the antiques haven of New Hope.

The hosts have spared no expense. Romantic touches include featherbeds, fresh flowers, and fluffy bathrobes. Private porches and quiet gardenside paths are just right for romantic talk. There are unexpected treats: the elevated hot tub overlooking a fireplace in the Hunterdon suite; the full hammock for two in the Sojourn Loft.

Sumptuous breakfasts may feature apple-blueberry strudel in parchment, house-made turkey sausage, and cinnamon Belgian waffles with maple-syrup ice cream. Breakfast in bed on request.

Bottom line: Luxurious rooms and fine hosts have made this one of the most romantic inns not just in the region but in the country.

Woolverton Inn, 888-264-6648; Rooms: $125 to $425 with breakfast and afternoon refreshments.
