According to some of the old timers and as legend has it, locals gathered around sippin moonshine in the old still located on the property. Remains of a rock foundation stand in the back yard of what once housed a cow which provided fresh milk for the family then later to become a still to provide some entertainment and extra income. Many of songs and poems were written about these hills.... Rich in folkloar and wealthy in History, Sussex County is one of the last of 21 counties in New Jersey to retain its rural characteristics. Planning efforts within the county focus on retaining our rural character while moving forward into the next century.

About the owner: I live on a small farm nearby with several goats, horses and chickens. Visitors have enjoyed farm fresh eggs (available upon request) homemade apple cider, fresh donuts and pies from the local country store less than 3 miles away. Although we are less than a 10 min drive from the rental property I feel as if I'm on vacation whenever I'm there visiting even when there to work! There is such a calming serene feeling one experiences when there. I am pleased to be able to share my home with you, your family and friends and am anxious to hear about your new memorable experiences during your stay.
