The Beacon House Innkeeper and staff could not be more friendly, courteous or accommodating. All you have to do is ask. Its one block from the Ocean and now restored Sea Girt Light House (beach chairs and badges provided), with comfortable lounging areas on the shaded porches of the Beacon House's two buildings or on the lawn in between, or by the pool. Beacon House is in the center of all all the action across the street from the Parker House (hopping bar/restaurant/ raw bar - with VIP cards available from your inkeeper so you can CUT the very longgggg line that begins to form apres sun and builds through the night) The rooms are quaint, clean and have everything you need including private balconies in most, so you can check out the action or just kick back and tan. Oh, did I mention the TASTY breakfasts? They're included and have a different special menu everyday, or regular items if you ask (i.e. eggs, cereal, etc.). Ask if they're making their famous CREME BRULEE FRENCH TOAST, while you're there. Maybe you can talk them in to it, or you might have to settle for Quiche Lorraine. Its close too. A short trip (probably about 75 -90 minutes from NYC depending). We've been there before and we'll be back.
