Destination guide

A true escape from the city, hiding in North Jersey

Adjacent to the Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge and 90 minutes north of Manhattan, Sussex serves as a bit of a regional escape-from-it-all. This largely residential area boasts plenty of farmland, as well as Clove Acres Lake – the perfect spot for a quiet Sussex vacation rental. Whether you're looking for a historic 1800s farmhouse or a chalet-style abode set back in the forest, it's likely you'll end your time in Sussex feeling relaxed, renewed, and maybe just a little bit ready to get back to civilization.

Things to do

Please don't feed the animals (unless the zookeeper says so)

Thanks to a nearby wildlife refuge, state park, and a cross-country ski center, it's likely you'll feel the urge to get out and explore from the moment you set foot in your Sussex vacation rental. A car is necessary for enjoying Sussex, and makes it easier to explore some of the nearby towns. Take the kids for a short drive to Space Farms Zoo and Museum, where a mix of local and exotic animals are waiting to be seen, and in some cases, pet and fed. There's also a small history museum and an antique car collection on-site.


Don't be offended if everyone tells you to take a hike

There's no question that Sussex is ideal for anyone looking to get outdoors and explore a bit. Hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing are all popular options, as is skydiving – ideal for the daredevils in your crew. Summertime brings plenty of county fairs and festivals to the streets of Sussex, but travelers more interested in exploring the downtown scene can find things to do all year long. There are a handful of little restaurants, shops, and cafes along Main Street, all of which feel like a bit of a throwback to a simpler time.


Pretty and picturesque, nearly all year long

As with most of the Northeast, New Jersey enjoys 4 distinct seasons, with winter dumping plenty of snow on the area and summer bringing the blazing sunshine and humidity. It does rain a bit throughout the year, but a bloom of wildflowers in the spring and a burst of color in the fall should undo any ill will toward a bit of drizzle. Opt for a lakefront Sussex vacation rental for maximum photo opportunities, especially in mid-October when the trees are practically aglow.

Natural features

Pssst... the locals in Sussex are truly wild

Travelers eager to hike will love roaming the surrounding forest trails, walking along creeks, and paddling in the lake. Thanks to the nearby Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge, tons of wild animals are to be found in and around the area. Birders can easily spot waterfowl and grassland birds, but be sure to look down, too; it's not uncommon to catch a bog turtle hiding among the wetlands. Visitors who want to get up close and personal can head to the nearby zoo, where local animals are on hand to promote regional conservation efforts.
