Charming B&B.

4.8 on February 29, 2016

Wonderful couple own and operate the B&B. Prepared the best breakfast I have experience in a B&B. Very clean. Great antiques. Nice sitting rooms. Comfortable bed. We plan on visiting again.

An oasis.

The rooms are absolutely spotless and yet warm and inviting. THe bed was sooo comfortable and the sheets were lovely. I slept so well.. The B&B is filled with interesting decorations, and the innkeepers are warm and highly knowledgable about the area and its resources. This is a real little gem, and I would love to return one day.

Good launching point for beach and forest alike

This is a handy location providing access to the beaches and restaurants of Long Beach Island as well as other natural amenities like the Bass River State Forest, and other attractions in the nearby S Jersey shore areas. Room and breakfasts were fine but unremarkable, with handy coffee/tea/snacks available all day, plus shared use of a small fridge. Property has nice porch, desk and back yard with convenient off street parking. I think the best asset though was Catherine's knowledge of things to see and do in the area, her willingness to make helpful suggestions, and to provide menus and brochures that might match your interests. She and hubby/cook Lorenzo are friendly and welcoming hosts. Only annoyance was that one window in our room faced the main street which has enough traffic to be heard in the room (with the window closed).

I was very pleased with accomodations and the friendly nature of the family that ran the inn. Very quiet, comfortable bed and hot appetizing breakfast. I would recommend this Inn.

Catherine and Lorenzo were so accomodating to us and our two young grandsons. Our 5 year old still talks about how delicious those pancakes were on our vacation. I would highly recommend the JD Thompson Inn to anyone! And the town of Tuckerton is adorable too!
