The Raritan Inn was exactly what we were looking for - a non-traditional venue that had character, warmth, charm and endless possibilities for our Fall 2011 wedding. As our wedding weekend rapidly approached, both the owner Marcia and Innkeeper John helped answer ALL of our questions and concerns, particularly about the logistics of the weekend. We were able to visit... More

This is a beautiful location, but be forewarned about inattentive and rude staff. They were very cold to our guests. Some guests described them as “watching us like a hawk all weekend”. We were told when we initially visited the venue that we could come and relax and “make the Inn home for the weekend”. Such is not the case.... More

“We stayed in the Morris room, which faces the backyard, which makes it quiet, and gets morning sun.”

“All rooms are great”

“From what I could gather, all rooms are wonderful. We stayed in The Warren, but our companions were in the Hunterdon and had an exceedingly good experience. We were told that the Owner had denim insulation put in for noise abatement, and the windows seem to be of superior quality. The temperature went down to about 5 degrees that night, and we were quite comfortable -- so much so that we did not turn the little stove on.”

“The Warren Room is large and roomy with a beautiful bath. However, it would have been nice to have had a second chair, so that two people can sit and read.”
