You may want to check out Warwick Vineyard in upstate NY, about 20 minutes away from the Woodbury commons.  It’s not a B&B but it’s very cozy looking place w/ an apple farm, with huge grounds.

Winterthur is just across the border in Delaware. I don’t think it’s a B&B, but it is really pretty!

Is your actual wedding date in November? You want outdoors in NJ in November?


Did you check out Valenzano? No B&B, but they already have a tented/pavilion  area as well as a new ballroom.

No suggestion I’m afraid just some sympathy! We had problems finding a good venue as well and I started to get stressed and depressed as until the venue was booked there really wasn’t anything else we could do. Hang in there, contact anyone you can think of and maybe reconsider some of the places you discarded, perhaps they’ll feel/look different if you look again. Or if worse comes to worst, perhaps 1.5 hours away is still feasible?

Good luck!

You know what? I vote with the Crossed Keys Inn. It’s GORGEOUS and you know – an extra hour drive won’t kill anyone!

Well Fernbrook looks lovely, I hope it all works out!

And it seems your Mother-In-Law needs to remember that this is YOUR wedding not hers. But kudos for you for already doing so much to be accomodating – that is very thoughtful of you.
