Clean rooms which were cozy, good breakfast with numerous choices, great location only a block from the beach and boardwalk, huge wrap around porch with blankets available, nice owners, but too expensive!!

I stayed here for a wedding for 2 nights in October. It is a true bed and breakfast. It is very cozy and feels like a large home. It just steps from the beach and the town of spring lake. It was a little expensive for not being a true hotel, but I would return.

This place is so wonderful! The staff is so polie and accommodating. The room was so clean and perfect. The buffet breakfast was declious and there was a big selection. The location is just 1 block from the beach. The price is so much more reasonable than many of the other

This was a great B&B! My girlfriend and I stayed in room 28 which accommodates 3. Sadly, one member of our group was ill and could not join us. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Loved our morning breakfast and the large porch for sitting outside in the evening. The B&B

Our parlor room turned into a very nice place for our guests to have breakfast, for the 1st time
Great porch for drinking wine!

Because spring lake is the nicest town at the Jersey Shore! You pay for location. And it's a bed and breakfast it's not going to be brand new.

"We had a room on the top floor. It was perfect and so quiet."
"No elevator. If climbing stairs is not your thing, I would recommend the 1st floor so you only have one flight to get up."
"If stairs are an issue (no elevator), request the second floor; staff will gladly help with luggage; there is one room on the first floor."
"Not sure which rooms would be better. Our room had an issue with the air conditioner and the lights. Place needs a huge overhaul"
"No elevator, so be prepared to walk up three flights of stairs if you stay on the 3rd floor"
