Great Inn With Great Hostess

4.4 on June 18, 2012

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!


My Vacation

4.0 on October 10, 2011

I went on vacation last week had reservations for the Serendipity B&B. The owner Karen made me feel right at home!! Upon my arrival I was greeted by Karen where she checked me in and I filled out a menu for the next morning. The food was terrific!! This was my first time staying in a B&B as I have always stayed in motels. This was a great first expeirence!!! Centrally located near all attractions! I would highly reccomend!


One exceptional shore B & B

Our room was exceptionally clean, updated with LCD TV, very comfortable !!! We plan to repeat next Memorial Day weekend !!! Overall, this inn rates - Five Stars !!!


Excellent B&B

4.2 on August 26, 2011

Serendipity Bed and Breakfast was an excellent place to stay in Ocean City. Karen was extremely friendly, and the premises were clean and extremely close to the Boardwalk. I think we were less than a block away from the 9th Street Beach. My wife and I enjoyed breakfast there, with my wife raving about the breakfast frittata.. so much so that when we got home, she looked up a frittata recipe on YouTube. Serendiptity also provides beach towells and chairs which was extremely helpful. We plan on going back, do yourself a favor and book a room here. You will not regret it.
