The Ocean House
Ranked #1 of 7 Spring Lake B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2014

After our family's 2nd visit to this lovely B&B in three years, we are convinced it is a piece of Jersey shore heaven. Jared and Colleen are running a top drawer establishment. Our room was clean, beautiful and well appointed. The morning breakfast, that is included was delicious everyday we were there. The afternoon offering of self serve iced coffee, cookies and tea when we returned from a day at the beach was wonderful. We were all able to ride bikes into and around town each day. That was a dream...took me back to 1973. No helmets...just bikes. Loved every minute of our stay at The Ocean House.

A lovely B&B just a block from the beach, and a block from the lake that is a wonderful stroll-also walking distance to all restaurants and shops. The room was very clean and comfy. Couldn't ask for a better staff either; very pleasant and helpful! Sitting on the porch in the evening with a glass of wine or in the morning with coffee is an experience not to be missed! Also, not to be missed, the breakfast! A tremendous variety and very delicious!! We definitely will recommend to friends and family, as well as, be back ourselves!! Great place!!

Room Tip: We were on the top floor(Room 10) Ocean side. We had an obstructed view of the ocean but could stil...

Our second visit to the Ocean House was in July 2014.
As before we enjoyed our visit: the staff is accommodating and friendly, the rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable and the breakfast delicious.
(I enjoyed the eggs or French toast, breads and especially, the yogurt and fruit).
The rooms also have Wi-Fi, which worked with my Kindle. (Cablevision is the supplier).
The location is just one block to the boardwalk and beach but a longer walk to the town.
The large porch is a wonderful place to have coffee and relax.

Room Tip: Speak with the staff as to what floor and room size meets your needs.

We stayed at The Ocean House for the first time over this past weekend and we can't wait to go back! Everything was perfect! The location is wonderful; one short block from the beach and within walking or bike riding distance to the charming little town. The Innkeepers, Jared & Colleen, are warm and welcoming and always happy to help with the Inn's and town's history, dinner recommendations and reservations, or just some friendly conversation. Their adorable lab, Penny, is always happy to greet you with a tail wag. Breakfast is amazing--an incredible amount of food, hot and cold, and always delicious. One of the best features of the Inn is the massive front porch with period rattan seating and tables and chairs. It's lovely to sit outside for breakfast, or just to enjoy the ocean breezes and peaceful atmosphere. This place truly is a gem!

We just returned home from a 3 day stay at the Ocean House. The B&B was immaculate and in a perfect location, very close to the beach, restaurants, a great swimsuit shop and an ice cream store. Our room was comfortable and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. We loved the porch with its abundant and comfy seating.

This is my third or fourth time here. The people are friendly and welcoming. The porch is amazing, beautiful ocean breezes, just one block from the ocean. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is always different, delicious, and not just continental. There is always relaxing music playing in the dining room. In the afternoon they have iced tea, ice water and baked goods for their guests, also delicious. You can borrow bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas. They have cold beverages to purchase (honor system) in the dining room. It's nice to get a few days at the beach where you feel like you're at home. I will be coming back in August for a concert and plan on returning each summer.

We stayed our first time, New Year's Eve...but I didn't do a review because of other distractions in my life. We stayed this past weekend and again..this B&B is top notch...from the friendly service at the front desk to the cleanliness and comfort of our room..to , last but not least....the perfect breakfast..ready for us with excellent staff. My husband is a vegan and the fruit, granola and spread for him was delicious as were the eggs and cakes and bacon for me. We will be back. A great night sleep, comfortable, quiet. The cool lemonade left out at night is amazing. This is what all B&Bs should be like.
