I stayed at this bed and breakfast in May, 2016. We got there early but one of the workers, a young girl, let us check in early. She was very nice and very helpful. One of the other workers was nasty. The room my boyfriend and I stayed in was very nice. Shower was a little too small though. The whole time we were there we didn't see the owner. We finally met her as we were checking out. If you are looking to relax, this is the place to stay.

An Anniversary Get-A-Way

We had gone to Cashelmara in May of 2013 for our one year anniversary and had such a great time that my wife surprised me with a reservation to spend a weekend there in May of 2016 for our four year anniversary . The room was great and the King size bed was very comfortable . We enjoyed a very nice home cooked breakfast . The High-Definition theater is great for movies . Being so close to the beach it was easy access to beach and boardwalk . Mary and staff were friendly and helpful . We had a great weekend at Cashelmara . Rick and Alice

Quaint lovely getaway!

Our stay was just wonderful. The inn is cozy and so welcoming. It is very clean and has a magical feel to it! The staff are outstanding and incredibly attentive to any needs we had. They are friendly yet not too involved, they are just the right balance. The breakfasts are the best. I miss it and want to return!!

Lovely getaway!

Mary and Co. make every stay at Cashelmara a delight. The made-to-order breakfasts and freshly made muffins are terrific. The still warm cookies or brownies each afternoon are a treat. The house mascot, Leo is always there to greet us. We look forward to our next visit.

A warm, wonderful inn

I have been coming here for the past 20 years and it has only gotten better. Mary is a wonderful and gracious hostess that aims to please. The rooms are cozy and EXTREMELY clean! Love the fresh made desert (especially the magic bars) and the homemade muffins at breakfast!

The room was super clean and the breakfast was excellent. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with a view of the lake and then turning slightly to have a view of the beach. Very relaxing!
