Villa Park is a charming b & b a few scenic blocks from the beautiful Spring Lake beach. From the minute you see the colorfully painted front porch with its comfy wicker chairs you will feel at home. The inn's period decor is appealing without being overly fussy. The owners, Matthew and Dara Schmid, are generous with rides (for those who, like us, arrive by train), beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, bikes, etc. But what sets this inn apart for frequent b & b travelers like us are the breakfasts. Matthew, a graduate of the prestigious CIA, offers a selection of dishes that are big treats but quite different from the carb- and sugar-fest one does tend to encounter at most b & b's. We will long remember his creative breakfast wraps as well as the delicious fruit and juices. His top-level experience at the Waldorf Astoria and the Rainbow Room shine through in the simple yet elegant breakfast service, either in the dining room or on the porch. It's all about attention to detail. You can't go wrong at Villa Park!
