“Wonderful 18th Century Seashore Weekend with friends”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We reserved three rooms for the 3 couples in our party. Upon arrival, our Host graciously introduced us to this wonderful family owner and operated B&B. This impeccably maintained 18th Century gem of an Inn with delightful decor lacks none of the modern accommodations including Wifi. Breakfast was served by the hosts Jared and Colleen who were very generous in answering all our questions about the Inn, local restaurants and things to see and do. We plan to return.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Ocean House (March 2012). It was an amazing experience, from start to finish. Although it was considered "off season" we were treated wonderfully. The furnishings were beautifully appointed and the property was immaculate. Breakfast was delicious and the early morning coffee provided a nice compliment to the ocean view from the front porch. We cannot wait to go back and experience the true "summer at The Ocean House."

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...

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.
