Eco-Friendly Bed & Breakfast Inn in New Jersey’s Highlands
Bed & Breakfast Inns
At The RoseMary Inn being eco-friendly is evident from the breakfast they serve to the grounds that they work hard at cultivating. Situated on 17 acres, owners Theo and Elaine Nagelmakers have been clearing non-native plants such as Russian olive, Japanese barberry, multi-flora rose and wild grape vines while at the same time making brush piles for animal habitat. Walking trails have been cut through the back of the property so guests may enjoy a leisurely stroll and observe a variety of wildlife from birds to deer, fox, raccoon, bear and more.
The owners conserve where possible including having individual heating/ac controls and fans in rooms and cleaning with non-toxic products. For your comfort, you will find 100% cotton sheets and towels and hypoallergenic comforters. The Inn also provides its own locally produced goats milk soap and all natural bath amenities. Big supporters of “Buy Fresh, Buy Local”, breakfast consists of local farm fresh eggs, fruits and vegetables, and all natural jams, maple syrup and honey. Artisan breads from local bakers – preservative and additive free – are also served. All baking is from scratch. Fresh meats are from a local German butcher shop and locally produced cheeses are served when available.
