Spend The Night In New Jersey’s Most Majestic Castle For An Unforgettable Experience

New Jersey is home to several stunning castles but one offers visitors the opportunity to spend the night. An astounding architectural feat surrounded by natural beauty, a stay here is absolutely unforgettable. Perhaps best of all, it’s actually affordable.

This is The Castle at Skylands Manor, a 54-room estate built in the 1920s.

Designed to look centuries old, many of its windows include stained glass panels dating back to the 1500s.

An absolutely exquisite structure, it is open for tours a single Sunday each month. The next tour is on March 5th.

The grounds are equally impressive; it lies in the heart of Ringwood State Park.
