The RoseMary Inn is not just a Bed & Breakfast for your NorthWestern New Jersey accommodations; itís an elegant, comfortable home away from home that celebrates the owner's love of people and entertaining.
Your Hosts, Rich and Jeanne are native New Jerseyans with a passion for hospitality, the best in farm-to-table fare, nature and a simpler more sustainable way of life. Rich and Jeanne strife to provide all their guests with an upscale, elegant stay in a relaxing, tranquil setting nourishing their soul while providing farm to table gourmet, artisan fare to nourish your body.
Outgrowing their Bergen County home, and looking for a simpler lifestyle; Rich and Jeanne purchased The RoseMary Inn to expand their organic gardening practices, including a new permaculture fruit orchard, fresh non-GMO veggies and herbs and most importantly, create a warm, hospitable homestead where they can welcome guests and share their passions.
Rich has a professional background in Finance, administration and critical problem solving, but his passion has always been working with his hands and with the land. He has been an organic gardener since the early eighties; before it was cool, and continues his education through courses and seminars; keeping up with the latest organic, sustainable practices.
Jeanne grew up in the hospitality business. Taking a break to raise her family, she taught Art in her childrenís school for about 8 years, and then (what was she thinking), spent over 10 years in politics and public service. During this time, she honed her culinary skills; becoming certified in all aspects of food preservation, creating hand-crafted liqueurs, doing a stint as a pastry chef, converting antique family recipes for the modern cook and with Rich, hosting numerous themed dinner parties, catering reunions, weddings and grand holiday celebrations. An invitation to their many events was coveted by all.
We invite you to our home, where everyone is warmly welcomed and new memories are a reservation away,
Welcome to our home,
Rich & Jeanne Baratta
