Bob and Lauren Dunn, Innkeepers of the Honored Guest, celebrate the following entries in their guest book.  One thing is for certain, you never know who will join you at breakfast.  Our guests come from all walks of life:  authors, journalists, scenic artists, forensic psychologists, physicians, moms and dads and even child stars.  Breakfasts are surrounded by  the greatest conversations, and if you’re lucky you’ll hear Bob playing his guitar on the porch….


From the Guest Book:


"This was our first Bed & Breakfast experience and we absolutely loved it. Thank you for the great time, room  and company. We definately look forward to coming again when we are back up for skiing. T & C. R

" Honored is an understatement. We have thoroughly your hospitality, fine food and most importantly, your welcoming company. JT & SM

" For as long as I can remember, I have hated the New Years' Eve Holiday. This year, though, it was magic!! Lots of snow, time spent with my amazing boyfriend, New Years Eve countdown by the fireplace and a stay at the most perfectly charming Bed & Breakfast ever (My first one). You are both so sweet and we loved staying at your home. Thanks for the best New Years Eve ever!  A & A

" Thank you so much for providing us "shelter from the storm" We were just about stranded during the blizzard when we found you and your beautiful home. Thank you for the delicious food, comfy quarters and good company" T, A & D

" You were truly a light in the storm. When we got stuck in Hillsdale during the snow storm, we were relieved to find we had a place to stay the night. You made us feel like "Honored Guests" Thank you for the cozy room, delicious breakfast and good company. P & PD

"New Jersey's unattractive when August comes to call

You've got to stay inactive or not go outdoors at all

So where can travelers sally forth for cool and peaceful rest?

Get in your car, drive 4 hours north and be an Honored Guest"

E & MH  NJ

" The Honored Guest truly made me feel that way. Bob & Lauren, your hospitality & generosity made for such a lovely and wonderful weekend.
