We recently returned from the Serendipity having stayed four nights for a family wedding. Karen, the innkeeper, could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. The breakfasts were delicious with fresh, sweet fruit, accompanied by a different baked delight each morning (think scones, breakfast cake, etc.) as an opener followed by the main course of your choice. My wife and I tried various omelettes, blueberry pancakes, fruit stuffed French toast and the waffle. All were excellent, as was the free flowing coffee, juices and milk. Karen also baked an afternoon treat each day around 4:00pm, e.g., brownies and shortbread, which were also delicious. All aspects of the service were excellent, and Karen was most pleasant to speak with and answer questions. We would be remiss if we didn't mention the wonderful front porch, where we spent a lot of time since we experienced one especially rainy day. It was the perfect place to relax and watch the world go by, or to consult your iPad, or whatever. It is also very conveniently located, we were able to walk almost everywhere. Bottom line: highly recommended! ...Pam & Don New Orleans, LA
Don and Pam Thank you for the kind review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your time in Ocean City and at Serendipity. The porch does have the best seats in the house! I try to make every guest's experience a positive one. I love to bake and am happy when it is appreciated. I hope to see you both again! Karen

Loved the fresh muffin and the apple cinnamon pancakes. The bed was very comfortable. We found this place on your website for a spur of the moment one night get away and it was worth the trip.
Thank you for staying at Serendipity Bed & Breakfast! I love to bake so I am glad you enjoyed the muffin. I enjoy making everything "from scratch" so it is nice and fresh for my guests!

Located about a block or a block and a half away from the boardwalk. You can walk right to the shore. And don't skip breakfast - it's as good as it gets in Ocean City! Great value. Thanks Karen!

We have visited Serendipity twice now and we will continue to return. Karen is very nice and an excellent cook. She has always been happy to accommodate our dietary needs (vegans) and can provide great suggestions for area dining and activities. The rooms are attractive and (best of all) you are a half block away from the gorgeous sandy beach of Ocean City! Also, there is a robust video and book library at the inn. I would encourage ANYONE to check this place out!

Becoming disenchanted with corporate life, I decided to work for myself. I bought Serendipity B&B in 2006 and have not looked back once!

Come and enjoy my freshly baked bread, muffins warm from the oven and a constantly filled cookie jar!
