"Being a true city girl at heart I was shocked how much I enjoyed my weekend away from Washington D.C. in the peace and quiet of the PA/NJ countryside. Staying at Sky Island is a real treat from start to finish - from Barb's delicious homemade breakfasts with farm fresh eggs, homemade jam and baked goods to the restful mindful meditation and cozy bedrooms! I could have sat on the spacious porch overlooking open fields and the Delaware River for hours, enjoying the peace and quiet. If you're looking for a little more action, the towns of Frenchtown and Lambertville are close by, as well as multiple wineries and the beautiful canal with miles of running and biking pathways. Sky Island offers a peaceful and rejuvenating setting to reconnect with yourself and nature and was well worth the almost four hour drive. We can't wait to come back again for another stay!"

Staying at Sky Island was one of the most fantastic weekends I've had in a while. Featuring breath-taking views paired with calming serenity, my weekend away couldn't have been more perfect.  Is it worth the several-hour drive? Shoot, I'd drive 18 hours to experience Sky Island again. Barb is an incredible host who goes all out for her guests, which is proven by the delectable cooking and welcoming home furnishings.

My weekend at Sky Island was the perfect "retreat" (in the truest sense of the word) from busy city life; the meditation and yoga centered me for the weeks ahead. I promise you won't regret a weekend at Sky Island, in fact you might find yourself asking Barb if she takes permanent tenants :)
