“Enjoyed our 40th Anniversary stay!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Celebrated our 40th anniversary a couple of weeks ago and were treated to an upgraded room due to a cancellation. Couldn't have been better. We stayed in the Magnolia Room with the Jacuzzi.
You will not be disappointed with your stay here. Owners John and Marj Loeper go out of their way to make sure your stay will be memorable.
We have been going to Ocean City for more than 60 years and have stayed in boarding houses, tourist homes, weekly rentals, hotels and B and Bs. And, they don't come much better than this.

Clean, and comfortable. Attention to detail will make your stay something to remember. Great breakfasts. Thanks so much.

Room Tip: Next time we might try the room with access to the roof top hot tub...

Stayed in the Magnolia (again) our favorite room. Jacuzzi tub, cozy bed. Breakfast was excellent as always. The Inn is always so quiet you could nap all day if you want to. Great place to cuddle, read, watch movies. Twinings Tea, fridg, ice bucket, ice. Towels, bikes, and of course Coakley!
Get away from it ALLLLL, go here.
Marj & John will help you with anything you need, but also have the grace to allow you a quiet weekend get away if you are just there to be alone with your spouse. We have been going here since appx 1992 & you just cant beat it in Ocean City. Every restaurant they ever suggested has been awesome.

John and Marj are wonderful hosts! The comfortable room and peaceful ambiance gave us the perfect relaxing getaway:) The food was incredibly delectable! It feels like you are in your own beach home as you have everything you need at your fingertips. My husband and I loved watching a movie by the fireplace, rocking in the chairs on the porch as well as taking a morning bike ride:)

We were taken extra good care of... with wonderful breakfasts and other extra, since we were the only guests. Very nice people who run a very professional operation and foster a warm environment. They were helpful in orienting us to some of our interests (food and nature) in the area.

Room Tip: Rose room was large and comfortable.

We were the only guests in the dead of winter to this shore Inn. It was lovely, clean and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful. A few too many decorations around, we couldn't play pool and it is not my style but it is a Victorian! Rose room was large and bright. Nice location near ocean and between forsyth wildlife refuge where we saw a snowy owl and much more, and Cape May.

I spent 4 days at Northwood Inn and felt like I was visiting family with the owners, Marj and John Loeper. The room was very clean and comfortable: big bed with soft sheets and a cozy blanket, jacuzzi big enough to actually feel like I was in hot springs without the sulfur scent ;) and plenty of quality of towels. Id wake up to church bells, fall asleep to ocean waves and gentle breezes outside my window. I went in December and had the pleasure of lounging around by the fireplace. Amazing food, very nourishing- John is a great cook!! I played a round of pool on a rainy day and had a library of books and puzzles to choose from. The inn is located 2 blocks from the beach which I adore! Plenty of parking and quick access to everything on the island mid-town. I will book a room here again for sure. I left feeling rejuvenated, calm, and ready. I highly recommend this Inn. Plenty of well-sized winsome rooms, hot tub on the top floor, a seating area filled with the most beautiful orchids, and the energy of a place you are sad to leave!

Room Tip: Call in avance to book your room.

We have stayed in a variety of B and B's over the years. The Northwood was one of the better ones. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Actually, we were upgraded to that room since the inn wasn't full. We looked at the room we would have stayed in and that also looked clean and comfortable. Bikes were available for us to use whenever and we enjoyed riding on the boardwalk. The hottub was perfect both evenings. The breakfasts were very good. We tend to get up a little earlier than they were ready but we walked to the boardwalk until breakfast was ready. The boardwalk was about four blocks east and the Northwood is two blocks north of many of the boardwalk sites but the distance wasn't too far to be bothersome. We have already talked about going back next year.
