  • Stay for two in a knight’s suite, King Alfred suite, Queen Antoinette suite, or Gatsby room; or four in a family chateau room

Property at a Glance: The Skylands Manor

With Skylands Manor’s weathered stone façade, it’d be easy to picture it in a medieval European city. The castle was actually constructed in the 1920s, but its anachronistic design—including arched doorways, a cross-gabled roof, and Tudor Revival touches—gives the manor a fairy-tale charm. It helps that the building stands amid 1,000 acres of gardens and woodlands.

  • Where you’ll stay: an opulent room or suite with chandeliers, gold-leaf molding, and built-in armoires.
  • Eat like royalty in the manor’s grand dining room, whose centerpiece is an imposing carved oak mantel.
  • Famous faces: The manor is run by Gerald and Robert Frungillo of Frungillo Caterers, whose reality show Masters of Reception ran on TLC.
  • Explore the grounds, which encompass a lakeside chapel and an orchard.

Ringwood, New Jersey: Former Mining Town Filled with Natural Treasures in Ramapo Mountains

The highland town of Ringwood sits 39 miles northwest of New York City in the Ramapo Mountains—a region filled with lakes, forests, and other natural attractions. Ringwood State Park is especially busy in the winter, when it’s a popular place for ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. The park also contains some of the original buildings and mines dating back to the 18th century, when Ringwood was a leader in the iron industry.

The property is beautiful - grounds & interior. Love staying here. It was our second trip. Have to be a little adventurous & independent - they don’t have the typical hotel amenities - but they offer a castle stay that you won’t find at a typical hotel. They offer a nice breakfast but it’s mainly pastries & coffee/tea. Not much in the way of protein except peanut butter & sugary yogurt.

The grounds and Manor alike were absolutely breath taking. The architecture was so ornately detailed and the historical presence of it all is simply inspiring. The accommodations were dated, in that the bathroom/bed and decor of the overall room good use some freshening up. A little bit of that is to be expected considering the age of the castle. Would visit again!

Very nice stay. Stood one night and the grounds and castle were beautiful. The front desk was friendly and there is free parking if you stay overnight. The only thing was I don't believe there was AC in the room or at least I couldn't find it.

It was a spacious room. Parking wasn’t great and at night there are no lights from the three parking lots to the Manor.
