The Blue Comet Room

 

The Station Rooms Are Named After Famous Eastern 20th Century Passenger Trains

 

Broadway Limited Crusader Black Diamond ... Blue Comet... the names are synonymous with comfort, safety and gracious service. These are among the many famous named passenger trains that traversed Pennsylvania and the eastern United States during the past century. Passengers on these deluxe trains could be assured of enjoying such amenities as excellent porter service, restful sleep in Pullman berths, fine dining and relaxation in beautifully-appointed parlor-observation cars. With good reason, named passenger trains, for the first several decades of the 20th century, were considered the ultimate form of public travel in the United States.

Beginning February 21, 1929, the Blue Comet blazed a trail between Jersey City and Atlantic City twice a day. The 136-mile route ran by way of Elizabethport, Red Bank, Lakehurst, Winslow Junction, and then on to the high-speed Reading Company's Atlantic City Railroad for the final lap to the shore.


Come stay in our restored 1880s railroad station. The building was beautifully constructed by the railroad gives it the space, charm and warmth of a big old country home without losing any of the magic from its railroad past.

The Station can be booked by the room, as self contained units or as a whole for an exciting group or family reunion.
