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.
The 5000-acre park offers swimming, hiking and a second estate, Ringwood Manor, which serves as a museum.
The castle's grounds also include the lovely New Jersey Botanical Garden.
With all there is to do here, you'll want to spend an entire day exploring. For an absolutely extraordinary experience, you can even spend the night.
In addition to being a popular wedding venue, the castle operates as a bed & breakfast.
The B&B is run by the Frungillo Brothers, talented caterers who've worked with celebrities like Alec Baldwin and James Gandolfini. They've also had their own reality show.
Breakfast is included with your stay and you can be sure it's phenomenal. Other amenities include WiFi, 24-hour room service and a business center.
Private rooms with shared baths start at just $99 per night, though rates do go up for suites.
Suites include private baths and living rooms or studies. Pictured is (a portion of) the Queen Antoinette Suite.
Making this spot even more magical, you may enjoy a view like this from your room. Live like a king or queen for the night at 5 Morris Road, Ringwood.
And so, my dear readers, I have an announcement to make. I myself will be getting married here. To who? Who knows, but a girl can dream. For now, I’ll settle for spending the night at this enchanting estate.
