Tandem Bike Inn
Ranked #2 of 7 Belmar B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 December 2013

I do not normally write reviews, but this is a worthwhile and enjoyable exception.

The Tandem Bike Inn is The Best Bed and Breakfast my wife and I have ever experienced. We had the distinct pleasure to stay at the Tandem Bike Inn during Belmar's "Tour of the Inns Holiday Kickoff". We walked the main street shops that offered warm drinks and tasty tidbits, toured other local B&Bs (In my opinion we stayed at the best one), and visited the Belmar Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Raffle. Last but not least, we had a heart-warming encounter when the Tandem Bike Inn invited "Caring Santa" to visit with local special needs children. We had a beautifully memorable experience!

New owners, Mike and Anne Marie, purchased the inn a few years ago and turned it into an attractive, comfy and cozy hostelry. Beautiful rooms with a fireplace, jacuzzi, and en suite, gourmet breakfasts, fresh baked goodies out for the taking, comfortable veranda, and spacious parlor with a warm fireplace. The entire experience was like staying with family (the ones you really like to hand around with!)

The Inn is perfectly located, not too far from the train station, and within walking distance of the beach, new boardwalk, quaint main street shops, restaurants and churches.

The Tandem Bike Inn was absolutely phenomenal !

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Tandem recently and could not have been treated any better by Mike and Ann Marie. We had contacted another Inn in the area but there were closed and suggested we call the Tandem. Glad we did. Beautiful Inn. Their hospitality made us feel like we were staying with friends. We were in Belmar off-season to visit our son. While not beach weather it was really nice to be able to walk to the beach/boardwalk (which is totally re-done). Our breakfast of french toast and sausage gave true meaning to home-made. It was great. I wish I knew how they can keep the place so clean. Spotless.

We wil stay at The Tandem again.

We can't express in words how nice a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city a trip to the Tandem Bike Inn is. Stepping off the early morning train we could smell the ocean, and after the short walk from the station we were greeted with a hot breakfast, perfect coffee, and a friendly smile. The beach was just a short walk away, and when the sand got too hot we found great comfort in the rocking chairs on the porch. After a peaceful night sleep we woke refreshed and went for a scenic run along the shore. Blueberry pancakes, yogurt, sausage and cake were waiting for us when we returned for breakfast on the porch. Make sure you take a ride on one of the tandem bikes while visiting! Neither of us had ever been on one, and we had a great ride! The rooms were exceptionally clean, and there was always a stack of fresh cookies out for the taking! We felt at home with the Hayes family, and we hope to visit again soon!

From our booking to leaving Ann Marie and Mike made our overnight getaway perfect. The inn is so peaceful yet still very welcoming and spotless. When making reservations we were asked about any special needs and the owners truly meant it. The snacks and breakfast were worth the trip itself! The owners easily answered questions and chatted but you were still given your own space. Everything during our stay would make you want to return.

We recently stayed at the Tandem Bike Inn in Belmar, NJ for my 60th birthday surprise. (I got to fly vintage WWII airplanes at a nearby airport.) The

Tandem Bike Inn was essentially perfect. There was nothing that could have possibly been better. The Inn itself is modern in appearance yet classic.

The rooms were large and the beds comfortable. Mike and Ann Marie have thought of everything. There is off-street parking, bikes available for guest

use, as well as items for the beach including towels and umbrellas. The food was fantastic. I assume Ann Marie was doing all the cooking and it was

simply fantastic. There were muffins, fruit and oatmeal available early, and a hot breakfast later. Drinks were available all the time. What reallly

put this place over the top however, was the helpfulness of Mike and Ann Marie. Two of the three mornings we were there, we needed to go out somewhat

early, and Ann Marie made breakfast early for us. Mike got us reservations at a great local restaurant. Mike was helpful in giving us local advice and

information. Mike even listened patiently to my tales of flying a B-17 Flying Fortress and a P-51 Mustang! But Mike and Ann Marie were incredible hosts,

thinking of their guests at all times and taking care of them. We will be returning to Belmar!

Room Tip: They are all good, really!

Everything about this place is terrific! First, the hosts, Mike and Ann Marie, are gracious and welcoming. They do their best to make you feel that you are at your home away from home - and they do it very well. Next, the porch, living room, and bedrooms are nicely furnished and everything is in tip-top condition. The bathroom in our room was large - with a jaccuzzi and shower - and spotless. The hosts provide everything that you could need to enjoy a beach vacation, including umbrellas, chairs, beach towels, WiFi, bikes, and videos. The breakfast served each morning is superb and the food plentiful. Finally, the location is great - close to the small town center and just five blocks to the beach (with ample parking both on the street and behind the house). We hope to return often.
