Every year my husband and I treat ourselves for our combined birthdays and stay a few nights at The Sand Castle - it's never disappointing! The rooms are both elegant and romantic. Nancy the owner makes each guest feel like family. Although there's a wonderful beach only a couple of blocks away, we just can't seem to leave the comfort...

This place is close to the light house and across from the bay. This is the nicest B and B I have stayed In yet. It's clean, pretty, very roomy, beds are great, bathrooms good size, breakfast delish, lovely pool and outside decks. Rooms have A/C and everything you could possibly need . Nancy and her staff have it all...

My husband and I stayed at The Sand Castle this past weekend for our 15th anniversary. It is a wonderful B&B and Nancy, the innkeeper, was terrific. The decor is charming, the breakfast was delicious, and the pool area was beautiful and relaxing. The room was extremely clean and I am very very picky about accommodations so I was pleased...

Our staff is very meticulous about trying to make the room look like you are the first guest to use it. We are so grateful that you noticed! I also give everyone my cell phone so I can be alerted if anything has been missed. During the summer season, at the end of our street there is a tram which...

The Sand Castle is a gem on LBI - The decor is lovely and the innkeeper has added some wonderful personal touches. Everything was perfection. The breakfast in the morning was amazing - the best scones I've ever tasted.

After six months of experimenting and gaining about 20 pounds when I first opened, I finally found perfection for our scones! It makes me very happy that you enjoyed them so much! Thank you!

We decided to do an elopement ceremony at this beautiful B & B. So happy we did! Nancy was absolutely amazing and exceeded all of our expectations. She took care of all of the details and our rooftop ceremony was perfect. We were married on her rook deck overlooking the bay and lighthouse at sunset. The Inn is beautiful and...

The room we stayed in was called "Seascape". It was charmingly decorated, with a view of the bay and a private entrance. It was spotlessly clean and had every possible amenity. The owner of this B&B has obviously thought out every need her guests might have. We appreciated the water bottles to take to the beach, the terrific magnifying mirror,...

I was looking for that one last perfect trip & very fortunately found it!!! The Sandcastle B&B is everything a 5 start offers with the warm and welcoming feeling of the bed and breakfast! I don't have one thing to complain about the entire stay but that I didn't stay long enough!

The Sand Castle is a completely non-smoking property. Smokers are advised that they must leave the premises and not smoke around other guests. We apologize for the guests who broke our rule and wish we had seen them to put a stop to it. But glad you were able to get past that to enjoy our facility! Thank you!
