FALL in Love

Sunny beach days are behind us, pumpkin spice lattes are back in every coffee shop, and today marks the official first day of FALL! While we don't have a favorite season here, it's hard to deny the beauty of the leaves changing, the crisp autumn air, and the cozy scents of warm apple cider in every candle we burn.

What do we love the most about fall? I'm glad you asked!

The View There is no denying just how beautiful the foliage in Northern NJ can be, especially when paired with a lake like at Rock Island Lake Club or rolling hills like at Bear Brook Valley. The promise of scarlet reds, amber and auburn colors painting the landscape set the stage for the most picturesque backdrops.
