Welcome to our website our story began in 2003 with a trip to the country to see about the possibility of purchasing a Bed and Breakfast. It didn’t take us long to fall in love with the Apple Valley Inn B&B – about 1 minute to be precise. Located in the rural setting of Sussex County, in northern New Jersey, the Apple Valley Inn had a grandeur and presence that immediately captivated us.
There is such a thing as love at first sight and as luck would have it we sealed the deal and a month later became the new owners of the Apple Valley Inn. Check out some of our before and after renovation pictures.
While in need of some major renovations and tender loving care the property had the added benefit of having a second building that at a time long ago functioned as a private distillery for the original owner of this 1831 home!
It seemed that making our own booze was a bit out of the question so the idea of creating the Candy Apple Shoppe was sprung. Renovations once again began as we converted this wonderful old building into our little bit of chocolate heaven. Check out some of our before and after renovation pictures.
Once we had the building ready to go we then filled it with over 80 varieties of delectable chocolates – 17 varieties of truffles and a wide selection of old fashioned penny candy. But something was missing and living in the apple region of northern New Jersey it seemed a logical and perfect fit to offer hand dipped caramel apples to our customers. Thus the Candy Apple Shoppe Gourmet Apples were born!!! We now offer over 20 varieties of Gourmet Caramel Apples and our list keeps growing.
We simply love what we do both at the Apple Valley Inn and Candy Apple Shoppe and are committed to making your experience with us unique and wonderful.
We hope to see you soon!
