24 perfect hours down-the-shore. One of us had to be in nearby Ocean for a family related appointment, the other headed down from NYC after work. We just needed beach, and peace, and quiet, and food and a good night's sleep. We had all of these things and more. As other reviewers have said Betsy and Chip are wonderful hosts. They have taken great care in choosing the appointments and decor in their beautiful home. It is a reader's paradise with lots of wonderful books on the shelves. The decor is casual yet elegant and welcoming. And you've already read about the food. Our menu selections were bigger than our stomachs but what we could eat we did with pleasure and gusto. Betsy and Chip did everything they could to make us feel welcome and at home, and all of this as unobtrusively as possible. We experienced a bit of a snafu with a bottle of wine and they immediately rushed to our rescue. We could not have asked for a better stay, right down to the restaurant recommendations. An additional note: with so many B&B's in nearby Ocean Grove, and all along the shore, requiring a two night stay on weekends it is wonderful that Betsy and Chip allow one night stays . . . I think their home will stay filled with those who need a night or, or two, or a week. A wonderful place! We will be back!
