Our bed and breakfast is also our home, where the traveler is our guest. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and inviting. The Inn is located within sight of the Atlantic Ocean and Belmar's wide beautiful beaches and boardwalk, and steps away from serene Silver Lake, home to the first flock of swans bred in America. A short walk from the inn to fine restaurants, marina, river, lake, boardwalk, and beaches. Enjoy the Inn's casual, Victorian-style ambiance on our expansive wraparound porch, where relaxing in a rocking chair takes you back to the seashore of days gone by.

A lovely, informal yet gracious inn just blocks from the oceanfront. The breakfast is served buffet style and there is something for everyone. The porch is lovely and has become the favorite place for our group. Best of all are Tom and Rosemary: wonderful, warm and just delightful!

Most relaxing place to stay!

Being only two blocks from the beach, The Inn is the place to stay for a beach lover's vacation. And at the end of a great day on Belmar's beautiful beach, relaxing on the wrap around porch is the perfect finish to a perfect day. Your innkeepers Tom and Rosemary couldn't be more accommodating , helpful, and a real pleasure.

Our second wonderful weekend stay here.

My girlfriend and I stayed here over Memorial Day, and were so pleased ,that we booked back in for the Fourth of July Weekend. Rosemary and Tom are gracious hosts and two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. You really feel at home. The Inn is conveniently located. A short walk to the beach or up to town, and its many fine restaurants and marina. Our room was comfortable and clean. The Inn has a yesteryear charm to it. The large wrap around porch is great for morning coffee or afternoon wine. The breakfasts were delicious. We've had two perfect, classic Jersey Shore weekends this year with Rosemary and Tom, and we plan to return in the Fall. I highly recommend The Inn at the Shore.

Nice long 4th of July weekend

My wife and I made last minute plans to stay at the shore for the long 4th of July weekend. To my surprise there was a room available at the Inn. The house is warm and comfy and Tom was very nice and friendly. The room was really small but it worked for us. Had a very nice peaceful weekend.

Great little place, Tom and Rosemary are great hosts. The rooms are clean and simple, and the place is 2 blocks from the beach. Get the room with the claw foot tub!
