Seasonal changes in floral displays. Skylands Manor and Ringwood Manor worth seeing and touring. Just walking or hiking around the Manors is exhilarating. Beautiful area.

A peaceful,diverse, collection of flora, with seasonal accents, many paths through formal collections as well a streams and swamps. Set in the Ramapo Mountains, with easy access to the NY/NJ metro area, but worlds away. Bears about, so follow bear protocols!

Wedding was terrible. Clueless staff. Stealing money from my nephew's room. Didn't have my reservation nor my children's reservation. Even though the rooms were paid for. Wedding planner rude and worn out. Staff poorly trained. They need new blood. Could have been charming, but most...More

Expansive acreage full of lush plants and trees. Paved roads for bicycling and walking. Stone mansion and other buildings are great to explore. Watch for festivals they hold every once in a while. Very scenic and relaxing.

The fees listed above are for tours of the ground floor of the manor house on Sundays. Also, if you find yourself in Ringwood (my hometown) during the week, parking is free and you can roam the NJ State Botanical Gardens... More
