The Ocean House
Ranked #1 of 7 Spring Lake B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 March 2014

A sixty mile drive from New York, and you are transported back to the 19th century in an immaculately renovated, elegant and cozy 1877 inn with all the comforts of the 21st century. Off season we loved the comfy king bed, in a room with very high ceilings with an extra sitting room for reading or TV, and the extraordinary quiet of The Ocean House and the surrounding Spring Lake with its post Sandy brand new boardwalk a block from the inn and freshly sanded beach. A surprise and major treat was the zen like massage room accompanied by a fabulous massage by licensed massage therapist Colleen Morris. Colleen also whips up a yummy gourmet breakfast in the morning. Jared will help you with anything you need, including dinner suggestions and a hairdryer if needed. Tea and cookies are available in the lovely dining room. Perfect getaway midweek or weekend. Five hearts for relaxation and romance.

Room Tip: all rooms are well decorated. We prefer a king bed as the rooms are larger. Queen bedrooms offer a g...

Reading past reviews, I can only say ditto! Great place, great host, great food, great location.... but no one mentions the resident hostess and greeter: Chocolate Lab Penny!!!! She was the perfect compliment to a great stay!

My husband and I just returned home after spending the night at The Ocean House B&B. It is one of the most wonderful experiences we have ever had and we travel a lot! Jarred was so friendly and welcoming and Colleen is not only very sweet and friendly, she is also a great cook. Jarred spent so much time telling us about the history of the old hotel. The house is spotless clean and absolutely beautiful! They allowed us to look at all of the rooms that were not occupied (which was a dream come true for me) and they were all beautiful. It is an experience we will always remember. We will return frequently and will most likely have our daughters wedding there. If you are looking for a very quaint, quiet relaxing retreat, this is it!

We recently had our daughter's wedding at the Ocean House. It was exactly what we wanted and more. The cocktail hour was on the porch, which is absolutely glorious. It was spacious, comfortable and with plenty of seating. The passed appetizers were wonderful and plentiful. Our guests didn't want to leave the porch.
Dinner was a buffet. It had variety, was delicious, and again plentiful. Our guests raved about it. The dining room was set so elegantly. The owners and staff were very attentive. They saw to all our needs quickly and pleasantly.
Our daughter got her dream wedding and our guests were very impressed. The Ocean House managed to combine professionalism and warmth. They exceed all our expectations.

We were attending a wedding in Spring Lake, NJ in Sept. The Bride recommended The Ocean House. It was a perfect place to meet and greet the wedding guests. The wrap around porch was a gathering place in the evening. It allowed new relationships to be formed and reignited old relationships. The House is beautifully appointed and feels like home. We could not have asked for a better Host, Jared. He was more than accommodating. Thank You. Breakfast buffet is served each morning and included in the cost, wonderful selections to start the day. The House was also walking distance to the center of Town. It was also centrally located to the Church. A short walk to the Beach and down the Board walk to an array of wonderful restaurants. Thanks to all who made us feel so welcome.
