Why Lori Gascoyne chose Short Hills
Short Hills is a picturesque, historic town, founded by the inventor of the roller shade, Stuart Hartshorn, in the mid 1800's. Our home was built as the original Old Short Hills General Store in 1885 to provide the residents of Short Hills with the finest quality coffees, teas and other various specialty items. The store was managed by a very personable shopkeeper who not only ran the store but lived upstairs as well. The store was the first of its kind to provide delivery, and it has been said that a single delivery could take several hours because many of the local residents were known to invite the couriers inside for tea and sweets upon their arrival! One of the most famous playhouses on the East coast, The Paper Mill Playhouse, is also located in Short Hills, where you can take in a broadway quality show during your stay. Most shows star famous broadway actors, and rival the quality of shows in New York City. The 3000 acre South Mountain Reservation borders our town, and is a wonderful place to go for a hike to enjoy the outdoors and breathtaking views of New York City. The reservation has many varieties of wildlife, a fishing pond, bike trails, beautiful waterfalls, and an old fashioned rope swing. You can even hike to "Washington Rock" where George Washington looked over the valley to monitor the movements of the British troops during the Revolutionary War. If you're a golfer, there are many beautiful courses just minutes away, including the iconic Baltusrol Golf Club where the 2016 PGA Championship was held. And, if you want to work on your short game, we have a large putting green right in the back yard for you to enjoy using while you stay! Additionally, we are surrounded by several quaint towns, most just minutes away by car or train and the famous Short Hills mall is just a 5 minute drive, known for it's exclusive high end shopping experience. Whatever your interests, we are certain that you will enjoy your stay in Short Hills.
What makes this Guest House unique
