Property at a Glance: The Skylands Manor

With Skylands Manor’s weathered stone façade, it’d be easy to picture it in a medieval European city. The castle was actually constructed in the 1920s, but its anachronistic design—including arched doorways, a cross-gabled roof, and Tudor Revival touches—gives the manor a fairy-tale charm. It helps that the building stands amid 1,000 acres of gardens and woodlands.

  • Where you’ll stay: an opulent room or suite with chandeliers, gold-leaf molding, and built-in armoires.
  • Eat like royalty in the manor’s grand dining room, whose centerpiece is an imposing carved oak mantel.
  • Famous faces: The manor is run by Gerald and Robert Frungillo of Frungillo Caterers, whose reality show Masters of Reception ran on TLC.
  • Explore the grounds, which encompass a lakeside chapel and an orchard.

Ringwood, New Jersey: Former Mining Town Filled with Natural Treasures in Ramapo Mountains

The highland town of Ringwood sits 39 miles northwest of New York City in the Ramapo Mountains—a region filled with lakes, forests, and other natural attractions. Ringwood State Park is especially busy in the winter, when it’s a popular place for ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. The park also contains some of the original buildings and mines dating back to the 18th century, when Ringwood was a leader in the iron industry.

We had an amazing time. It was so great to expropriate the castle and botanical gardens near by. I wish the AC worked a little bit better in our rooms as it was still pretty hot. Very welcoming staff and friendly guests, we will be back again but perhaps in a more cooler time.

Beautiful and comfortable stay. So unique & fun! Skyland Manor was more spectacular than we expected.The innkeeper, Kelly, was very welcoming and quick to help w/anything we requested. We appreciated the breakfast variety. We will definitely stay here again. I can't wait to return! It's closer to NYC than it seems. We went 2 days while staying there. You can pick up a train in Suffern, NY
