The room was very nice and rustic. Very comfortable bed and the room is nice. I had a room facing the street and heard every conversation of those walking by, every car, and several trains passing. The train station is across the street. If you are a light sleeper you may want to ask for a room away from the... More

This was a single evening stay on our way to an event in New York for the weekend. We selected the Inn based on past experience with the town. The Inn is historic and as such it has some of the associated things one would expect such as smaller rooms and stairs rather than elevators. To us this added to... More

My husband and I stayed last Sunday night at the Bernards Inn, and we had a wonderful time. This 20-room inn is in the center of Bernardsville; it is not in a country setting. It has its own parking lot nearby, so parking your car is not an issue. They have many packages online (called getaways) and we had booked... More
