For over 35 years Richard Zampella has envisioned an opportunity to celebrate the history and future of Idylease where he grew up on in Newfoundland, NJ. Consistent with the wishes of his late father, Dr. Arthur Zampella, the property along with it’s historic structure is finally under the stewardship of his son Richard.
Idylease is a former hotel located in Newfoundland, New Jersey, that was erected in 1902. It is a historically significant example of early 20th century resort architecture in the Highlands Region of Northwest, New Jersey. It serves as a reminder of the popularity of the area as the vacationland for the middle class in the late nineteenth century. Idylease is a locally designated landmark and is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
