Located just one block from the crashing Atlantic and Sea Girt's historic lighthouse, The Beacon House welcomes you with an ambiance which is uniquely its own. Built in the classic style of a grand Victorian seaside inn, circa 1879, its two spacious houses are framed by panoramic wrap around porches lined with comfortable wicker and rockers. Elegant crystal chandeliers descend over polished oak floors and spacious parlors are warmed by fireplaces in the cooler months. Both houses have been beautifully restored and renovated with 18 individually decorated guest rooms all with private baths, air conditioning, ceiling fans and color cable televisions. Mornings begin with the aroma of fresh brewed coffee followed by a sumptuous homemade breakfast served in our bright and elegant dining room. Spend a glorious day at the beach, relax in the peaceful serenity of a chaise lounge at our private pool, walk the boards, or explore the shops and eateries of Sea Girt, Spring Lake and Manasquan. Whatever the season, we look forward to sharing the casual elegance of The Beacon House with you!

My family and I have been staying at the Beacon House for years! While there are other NJ shore options, all pale in comparison to the Beacon House. It has charming rooms, each with its own nautical theme, ample parking, a pool, top-rate breakfast, and amicable staff (wait staff, housekeeping, and the innkeepers Candy and Kathy). Moreover, it is a mere block away from the Sea Girt beach (beach passes, chairs, towels, and bicycles provided by the Beacon House), boardwalk, and concession house and across the street from the Parker House - a NJ shore favorite restaurant and bar. There's no beating the Parker House if you're looking for a classy, friendly, and convenient place to stay at the NJ shore!

Only one block from the beach, the Beacon House was an excellent place to rest and recharge for the weekend. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was tasty (though there was only one menu item on Sunday morning - watermelon "mojito", blueberry French toast with sausage). Sea Girt beach badges were included, as was a parking spot (plenty of free street parking available within blocks). We arrived before our room was ready, but were able to use the changing room/bathroom before hitting the beach. Would definitely stay there again!

The Beacon House has everything for a perfect weekend getaway. Hospitality, charm, beautifully decorated comfortable rooms and a short walk to the beach. Breakfast was excellent.

Staying at the Beacon House was delightful. Our room was spotless and cozy. The pool was great. Everything is really well done to much detail.
