Judging from the weathered stone facade and medieval architecture, you might assume The Castle at Skylands Manor was built several centuries ago and was somehow transplanted to the northern Appalachian Mountains. Actually, the building was constructed in the 1920s, and its anachronistic designincluding arched doorways, a cross-gabled roof, and some Tudor Revival touchesgives the manor a certain fairy-tale charm. The feeling is enhanced by the setting. The castle stands amid 1,000 pastoral acres of manicured gardens and woodlands.
A Frungillo Caterers property, Skylands Manor's co-owners, Gerald and Robert Frungillo, are no strangers to bringing fantasies to life. The brothers are renowned for catering elaborate weddings that fulfill every one of the bride's desires, whether that means flying in specific candies from the Dominican Republic or resurrecting Mendelssohn to play the wedding march. The Frungillos even had their own TLC reality show, Masters of Reception, and they've worked with celebrities such as Alec Baldwin and James Gandolfini.
Inside the mansion, Gatsby rooms and Queen Antoinette and King Alfred suites are opulently appointed with chandeliers, gold-leaf molding, and built-in armoires. Chic black-and-white decor in some rooms calls to mind the Jazz Age, and sumptuous, royal-red furnishings in other chambers fall in line with the estate's baronial vibe. Large windows look out on the grounds, which encompass a lakeside chapel and a tree-lined orchard.
The same attention to detail found in the guest rooms is on display in the common areas, which include a dining room graced by a carved oak mantel and a breakfast room lined with green Italian marble. Inquire at the front desk about occasionally scheduled guided tours of the grounds and manor to learn about the history and architecture of the place.
The highland town of Ringwood sits 39 miles northwest of New York City in the Ramapo Mountainsa region filled with lakes, forests, and other natural attractions. Ringwood State Park surrounds The Castle at Skylands Manor, providing easy access to woodland hiking trails and the spring-fed Shepherd Lake, which opens up for swimming from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The park also contains some of the original buildings and mines dating back to the 18th century, when Ringwood was a leader in the iron industry.
