Fabulous Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on July 27, 2014

We booked the Tower Cottage for our anniversary weekend. Location is wonderful. Rooms are incredible. Service is impeccable. We were 2 blocks from the boardwalk. Maureen and Tony provided beach buggies, beach chairs, towels, beach passes, water and snacks for our visit to the beach. This could not have been easier. Parking was very easy. In our down time, we relaxed in the room watching a DVD provided from their large collections, as well as read on the porch in a rocker. Breakfasts were unparalleled. Personal care was fabulous. We ate dinner at the Prime 13 Restaurant, and were absolutely delighted with the food. We had a most relaxing weekend and thank both Maureen and Tony for a wonderful time


A Definate Six Star Castle!!!!!

5 on August 08, 2013

I Titled The Cottage a six star castle because it is like a dream to my wife and I. The owners of this beautiful cottage are the best host I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, from day one to the end of my stay they were wonderful. My wife and I can't wait to visit again! P.S. Thank you Anthony & Maureen for a wonderful stay at your home. (Gilbert & Nancy Rodriguez)


Our 32nd Anniversary Celebration

4.6 on October 22, 2012

My husband and I spent 1 night at this magnificent Bed and Breakfast. This was our first Bed and Breakfast stay and we can't rave enough about the setting, the food and the wonderful people(Maureen and Tony, the owners, and another couple we met from Philadelphia!) The house was spic and span. Maureen and Tony made us feel like family and couldn't have been more hospitable. The fruit and cheese platter were such a nice touch. We couldn't stop eating all the cookies, cakes and cream puffs(homemade) they left in the dining area. The room was absolutely gorgeous, just loved the decorating! For breakfast, I had asparagas fritatta, which I requested(after reading the review) did not disappoint. It was absolutely delicious. My husband had the Eggs Benedict which he loved. The fruit platter before the actual breakfast was spectacular! We really enjoyed getting to know Maureen and Tony. I would highly recommend this wonderful Bed and Breakfast and hope we get to go back soon!


Absolutely Perfect

5 on September 04, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Tower Cottage to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed in the Tower Suite. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. Everything was just perfect!!! We have stayed at many B&B's in the 20 years that we have been married. The Tower Cottage is by far at the top of our list. Maureen and Tony were two of the nicest inkeepers we have ever met. Our room was just immaculate. The morning breakfasts as well as the homemade muffins, cakes, cookies, etc. were absolutely delicious. They truly made us feel so at home and welcomed. The beach bag packed with beach tags, towels and snacks were such a thoughful touch. We also enjoyed the cheese plate that was delivered to our room as well as the bottle of chilled wine. We will definitely come back again and stay at the Tower Cottage.


Excellent in so many ways!

4.8 on August 25, 2012

The positives: -The room (Tuscan Dreams) was beautiful. The deep tub (with jets) was perfect, and is one of the major reasons I wanted to rent this room in the first place. The overhanging, dim-lit chandelier above the tub was just icing on the cake. Very romantic and beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. -Tony and Maureen (the innkeepers) are just delightful. They do not get in your way if you want to have some quiet, non-social time with your partner; but they are very helpful with finding nice places to eat in the area and for general conversation as well. -Breakfast was simply amazing. Most places do not offer nearly as much food, or a quality of food. I can't help but wonder why they do not open a restaurant of their own! -The small details throughout the building just made this location "feel" like a getaway. -The free beach passes, beach accessories (towels, chairs, umbrella, etc.), and complimentary bottle of wine were just excellent. Being literally 2 blocks away from the beach/boardwalk/and town was perfect as well. The negatives: -The rooms are a little bit small. This is not a huge issue, but it can be intimidating to be in such a small space. The amenities in the room more than make up for this issue ultimately, though. -It is in a built up residential area. The older photo showcasing a lake right behind the inn is not a reflection of what you will see out your window today. Again, this is not a huge issue, but it is somewhat misleading as I expected a lake and a lightly populated residential area. -The price does seem a little bit high, but ultimately I (and many others) are willing to pay it for the quality. I do intend to go down there again some time, and will likely go during the off season to take advantage of the cheaper prices. All in all, there is little to complain about. I loved the time my girlfriend and I were down at the Tower Cottage.This was a great place to stay!


Another perfect weekend at Tower Cottage

5 on June 22, 2012

We brought visitors from Australia to the best B and B in New Jersey. Another superb few nights with Maureen and Tony at The Tower.


Perfect place for our first nights together as a married couple

4.8 on May 12, 2012

It has been overa year now since our wedding, just returned from a awesome trip to Costa Rica for 10 days and our stay at the Tower Cottage remains one of our fondest memories. Everything about it is perfect in every way.


Place to stay

5 on October 01, 2011

We have visited several B&B's in NJ, we thought we found the best until we stayed at The Tower Cottage. The moment we walked in you could tell that the owners took pride in this elegant home. No detail was overlooked, the towels, the door knobs, the bedding. Maureen & Tony took their time in making this B&B exquisite. You won't go hungry here, from the bountiful and extraordinary breakfast menu which was comparable to any five star restaurant, and then when you returned from the beach the assortment of fruit and cheeses were just the right touch. The innkeepers Maureen and Anthony were so welcoming they made you feel right at home. Maureen and Eloine catered to all your needs. Our time their was more then just relaxing it was an experience we will never forget.


Outstanding

5 on September 29, 2011

If I could've thought a word more superlative than "outstanding" I would have used it. The place is beautiful, the hosts are wonderful charming people and the food and presentation is, well, outstanding. If you're looking for a place to relax in a romantic environment and be pampered, this is it. Especially, if you're a piano player! Tom and Barb from Belle Mead


Beautiful Inn

5 on July 31, 2011

From the minute you are greeted by Maureen and Tony on the front porch of their beautifully restored victorian home, you are in another world of luxury. Any one of their 5 rooms will overwhelm you with comfort. You need to leave your diet at the door as you may not be able to finish the generous breakfast prepared by Maureen. And dont forget the snacks of baked goods, cheese and fruit and the special ice tea all during the day with a nightcap of cheese cake or fresh made brownies. Pamper yourself and you will make new memories with a stay at the Tower Cottage!
