At Ashling Cottage, you will find serenity. The hosts and staff treat you exceptionally well, are friendly and go out of their way to be helpful and to satisfy your needs. Staying here is a delight, and is convienent to the delights that spring Lake has to offer. I heartily recommend it.

The Ashling Cottage was very nice and convenient to downtown Spring Lake and the beach. We were surprised to see that there were no TV's in the guest rooms. However, there were two join tvs in the common areas that we never had an issue watching. Breakfast was great and the staff was very accommodating to special requests.

We enjoyed our stay at Ashling Cottage so much. The owners were very friendly. There were always snacks out and port and cake in the afternoon. It was great to have access to beach chairs, beach tags and bikes. It was super close to the beach, the lake, the shopping area and lots of great restaurants. We will definitely be back!

I stayed here with a friend for 2 nights. Everyone was pretty friendly. Breakfast always contained fruit of some sort and a plate of eggs, potatoes, sausage or waffles. There is also tea and coffee. They have snacks and wine out. We rode the bikes on the boardwalk and used beach badges to relax on the beach. Overall it was a good experience.

We recently stayed at this property and were very pleased with the accommodations, breakfast, service and proximity to the beach. The owner was very friendly and gracious and happy to provide information on the area, dining, etc. Would definitely return and would recommend this B&B.

We had such a wonderful stay at Ashling Cottage. The Innkeepers . . . Linda and Peter are lovely and so accommodating . . . they make you feel like you're home. A short walk to the beach . . . they provide beach badges, chairs, bikes, beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. They are very helpful in suggesting restaurants and making reservations for you. We look forward each morning to a gourmet breakfast . . . it's such a treat. We had such a nice time and look forward to going back next year. Dolores and Mike, New Jersey

Our family stayed in the back cottages (and not the B&B) so I cannot rate the dining experience. I found the Innkeeper, Linda, to be helpful and friendly. The cottage is situated in an ideal location, within a short walk to the lake and the ocean. We enjoyed having access to beach chairs & umbrellas, beach towels, and bikes.

Linda and Peter couldn't have been more welcoming. The accommodations are roomy and well-kept, while the bathrooms are clean and modern. The amenities--highlights are beach chairs & towels, plus a garage full of beach cruiser bikes, as well as snacks and port wine in the afternoon--are so generous. Breakfasts are delicious. Love the fridge that everyone can use (for wine, cheese, take-out lunch/dinner) and the complimentary water, soda, coffee and tea. Fantastic location: a block from the beach and great restaurants, five-minute walk to town.

This B&B is warm and inviting with a nice shaded porch and is only a 2-3 minute walk to the beautiful pristine beach. Snacks, bikes, beach chairs, unbrellas, beach towels and beach passes are all provided. All you need to bring with you is a smile. The icing on the cake is the warmth of Linda and Peter, in owners who are warm and welcoming

Ashling Cottage is 4 easy blocks to town, restaurants, one block to the beach. The owners and staff express excellent hospitality. Loved the snacks and wine out from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Parking is a little inconvenient, but workable. Next time I would bring my own beach chair.

Spring Lake is a wonderful place and Ashling Cottage is a gem! My husband and I plan to return every year!

My husband and I had the most wonderful anniversary weekend at Ashling Cottage. It was incredibly relaxing! The moment we arrived we took a 2-hour nap, as the house is that peaceful. Linda was amazing and very accommodating, as we were without a car. She picked us up from the train station and gave us a tour of Spring Lake. We would recommend it to anyone who is looking to get away for a restful vacation. The complimentary beach passes, bikes, beach chairs, snacks, drinks, and port wine add a lot of value to the rooms. We stayed in the spacious Romance #1 room and it was really nice with a renovated bathroom. This is a great getaway from NYC, as you can get there in less than two hours from Penn Station on NJ Transit, and Spring Lake is very walkable. We would definitely go back to Ashling Cottage!

My husband and I have spent several weekends at the Ashling Cottage over the last few summers. We found it quite by accident, but what a great find it was. It is a wonderful Inn, in a perfect location. The beach is a short block away in one direction and the lake is an even shorter block away in the other direction. The rooms are lovely, clean, and quiet. There is a comfortable front porch perfect for sipping coffee in the morning, wine in the afternoon, or reading a book anytime. Large, beautiful trees keep it shady and comfortable. Linda and Peter are wonderful hosts and have a great list of restaurant recommendations! There is a lovely breakfast served in the atrium area each morning. As I said, we have enjoyed many weekends there and look forward to returning next summer!

This was our first time staying at a B&B and it was a wonderful first experience. Ashling Cottage is in an old Victorian home and we were encouraged to make ourselves at home in the common areas. The owner set out a late afternoon snack, and the breakfasts were delicious and plated attractively. Our room was nicely appointed and very clean with nice touches such as a comfy robe and a noise machine. It is located one block from the beach and one block from the lovely lake. The town itself is very picturesque and the homes are exquisitely maintained. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and meeting the other visitors. Very relaxing.

We had a wonderfully refreshing several-day stay at Ashling Cottage. The room (Romance #1) was beatufully appointed and the house is just beautiful. No need to bring anything for the beach because Ashling supplies it all (chairs, towels, umbrellas.) In addition, there are bicycles available to bike the boardwalk and the wonderful lake in town. Was treated to a glass of wine, made by the innkeeper!

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Ashling Cottage and would recommend the Ashling to anyone staying in Spring lake. Their attention to detail and service was excellent.

We really enjoyed our stay at Ashling and appreciated their great attention to detail--clean, cosy rooms, complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes and beach passes, port and cakes at tea time, delicious and wholesome breakfast. Our only complaint is that the mattress is too soft, but besides that, everything was very nice.

We went to Spring Lake in July looking for a relaxed and calm weekend. We could not have chosen a better place. Spring Lake is so beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. The beach and its boardwalk is perfect for long promenades. We stayed at the Ashley Cottage for two nights and found the place perfect. Cozy, clean, peaceful, it was like being at a friends’ home. We loved the porch where we had coffee in the morning and drinks before dinner. A nice way to start your day & evening. We will definitely go back. Katherine , her husband and their team were very attentive and friendly. They really look after every single detail and ensure you have a very nice, relaxing and unforgettable stay. Please be aware that some restaurants in Spring Lake do not hold an alcohol license so you might need to bring your own wine (which you might buy at a local liquor store). It is worth to check with Katherine before making a reservation.

The Ashling Cottage name implies exactly what it is a warm inviting and intimate cottage experience. Here life is leisurely to the extreme, relaxing to the utmost and enjoyabe to the highest. It is well priced and suited to those who want to relax and enjoy the shore and summer. My wife and I WILL stay here again

We made a very late decision to spend 3 nights at the Jersey Shore around the 4th of July and we feel very fortunate to have found accomodations at Ashling Cottage B&B in Spring Lake. The staff was very attentive to our needs and we enjoyed our stay very much, this being our first stay at a B&B anywhere. We walked to public tennis courts each morning as well as the 1 block to the beach. We also took advantage of the bicycles on hand at this property. The chef did a great job and the variety of breakfast combinations over the 3 days was appreciated. We would highly recommend Ashling Cottage. Larry & Mary Ann L. (Clay, NY)

We were attending a formal dinner nearby and didn't want to risk driving home after one too many glasses of wine. Given that it was high summer season, the price for the room was expected, but a bit dear nonetheless. The room was well-appointed, but small, so small that it didn't have a TV and the WiFi reception was too poor to get anything on my laptop. Parking on the street was an issue, and as we were parking overnight, we had to move our car to a different location a few blocks away, where it seemed a bit remote and open to risk. Nothing happened though, but it was a "hike" late at night, when we really just wanted to go to bed. The breakfast was top-notch. A full meal, with numerous options and all of the cooked food was freshly made from local ingredients. Yum!

The room was very spacious. Abit disappointed that there was no TV available in individual rooms. The common room furniture was leather and very comfortable. The breakfasts were delightful with friendly staff.

My husband & I absolutely love Ashling Cottage! We come here once a year for our anniversary celebration. The rooms are clean & spacious. Linda & Peter (the innkeepers) are wonderful and always very accommodating. Breakfast in the morning is great on the sun porch area. Friendly staff & good service. Always a relaxing & romantic getaway!

This bed and breakfast is a gem, close to the ocean and one of the many lakes, walking distance to the quaint town. The rooms are bright and clean, some have small bathrooms and most rooms do not have TV, but all of that is minor due to the beautiful surroundings. Hosts were super friendly. Breakfast area is charming, the breakfast was good but unremarkable. Definitely will be back.
4,6 en agosto 27, 2011
Ashling Cottage was a clean and quiet as they come. The breakfast was outstanding in the elegant sun porch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and roomy. The odd part was the town. My wife and I are used to the bustling shore town. Spring Lake is not. The hotels have been replaced with retirement homes. There's not an arcade or pizza parlor for miles. There is nothing for kids to do here except go to the beach. But beware of the beach rules: No food. No drinks except water. No ball playing or frisbee throwing. ( We did see some folks snacking, but we were warned that fines are given.) Anyway - if you want a very quiet time at the B&B & Beach, you'll love it! If you want a Wildwood-type vacation, look elsewhere.

Just back from a wonderful 2 night stay at Ashling Cottage. Our room was cozy (#11), but had it's own private porch. The location is unbeatable - one block to the lake or the ocean and three blocks to town. Included are beach tags, chairs, umbrella, towels and bikes. The breakfasts were wonderful - omelettes, crepes, fresh fruit, OJ, granola & yogurt are among the possibilities. In the afternoon, we enjoyed indulging in the complimentary port wine and baked goodies. We found the inn keepers and staff to be helpful and friendly and the inn dog, Toby was adorable. We loved the peace and serenity so much we a hoping to return in a few short weeks.

Just spent a wonderful weekend at Ashling Cottage! Our room was charming and the property immaculate. One huge plus - beach badges are included (most others do not include them). I can't rave enough about how helpful Peter & Linda were too -- great hosts.

When we originally went looking for a relaxed, civilized stay near the ocean, Ashling Cottage came up in our search. The pictures looked charming and ideal. Upon arrival, we were not disappointed. The warmth and friendlness of the owners, Linda and Peter always make our stay a welcome one. (We've been back three times.) Spring Lake is like a childhood memory and Ashling Cottage is like coming home. The setting and location are ideal and it's a tremendous place to relax and unwind. We will return again. Highly recommended! S.K, New York

Along the Eastern seaboard there are just a handful of B & B properties that we have found to be of this quality. Perfect hospitality and a family-run feel in every way. Highly recommended.

Ashling Cottage is a deeply comforting place in the time warp that is Spring Lake. We felt kindness from the minute we arrived with the attentive care of the owners and their patience with our many questions, having never been in town before. The breakfasts were fabulous, with fresh baked breads or pastry, each morning. The room was so charming, and we have found another honeymoon home.

Had a wonderful overnight at Ashling Cottage. Beautiful property in a great location (better than many of the other B&Bs we passed), really close to beach and lake. Great area for biking, walking the boardwalk and relaxing on the beach. Loved it!

Our room with its sunken bathroom was charming and relaxing. The Cottage was a short walk to the beach; the staff was responsive, welcoming and warm; the dining options in the area were wonderful and the staff recommendation proved worthwhile. When next in Spring Lake we will be staring at Ashling Cottage. Eric P.

We had a lovely two night stay at Ashling's Cottage B & B in mid-June. The accommodations were very comfortable. We stayed in Sweet Escape which was on the first floor with a private entrance. This was very private while giving us access to the main areas of the house. The hosts were very pleasant and focused on our comfort during our stay. We recommend this B & B and will definitely stay here again when we visit Spring Lake.

Ashling Cottage is the perfect placed to stay! Location is perfect for whatever it is you want to do: go to the beach, enjoy the lake or stroll downtown. The staff is warm and friendly, and accomating for your every need. Definately the place to stay!

The innkeepers were extremely friendly and welcoming, and if you like dogs, Toby is the cutest and most friendly greeter of them all. The inn is beautiful and cozy, and the bed was very comfortable. There are plenty of bikes to choose from, and new beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas. The walk to the beach and restaurants is very convenient, and the area is beautiful. Excellent all around.

Every B&B offers their own special element and after staying at dozens, I'd say the bucolic location of this classic house is its selling point. It's a block from a lovely and well maintained beach, across the street from the main lake in town and a very laid-back place. Perhaps I'm a tough critic though the food was pretty marginal (its not like New England/New Hope breakfast sophistication) and the rotating college kids (so many!) were pretty green. The rooms are quaint and very clean and the support group provides whatever you need -- all in all, its a great spot to visit.

My husband and I escaped for a quick weekend getaway, and had a absolutely wonderful time. The pictures in the photo gallery don't do the rooms justice.

Will definately be making a trip back!

This is a beautiful and charming B&B, where no detail has been overlooked by the eager to please owners, Linda & Peter. The rooms are decorated very tastefully, but not overdone. Ours had even had its own fireplace (note to self:book again for the winter season). The location is superb- one block from the beach and two blocks from Spring Lake. The B&B provides you with bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas and beach passes, for starters. When you return later in the afternoon, they have a tasty assortment of snacks and port wine. What a nice touch, indeed. In the morning, they make a full traditional sit down breakfast that was delicious. We were fortunate to sample their home made almond scones and freshly made blueberry pancakes. Delicious! The town is lovely, with no fast food joints or loud bars. For that, there are plenty of other towns on the Jersey Shore. All in all, a most romantic setting for a nearby getaway. Thanks for a terrific stay and for sure, we'll be back.

Spring Lake is a really nice and quiet shore town, and Ashling Cottage is in a perfect location to enjoy the beach and the town. Linda & Peter were went out of their way to make sure that our comfort was addressed both at the inn and in town, with access to free bicycles, beach chairs & umbrellas as well as free beach access badges. The only criticism we have is something that is generally typical of b&bs this size - the fairly limited choices at breakfast. Unlike many other b&bs we've frequented, there was little variety or inovation when it came to the hot dishes, and the servings were fairly modest in size. That being said, the total experience was still a positive one.

From the moment you walk into the Ashling Cottage Peter & Linda make you feel like family. The room where a magnificent breakfast is freshly prepared is surrounded by windows. A view of the lake and a kiss from the sun are the perfect start to any day. We stayed the entire weekend and had the perfect honeymoon. Every room is unique and each has its own charm. We stayed in "Heavenly" which comes with a soaking tub, a writing desk, and plenty of light. It was so divine we'll be sure to stay again. Highly recommended - you won't regret it. ~~Mary & James~~
