Love everthing

The most wonderful place. Mary is fabulous, the rooms are beautiful, the breakfast is amazing! Such a special place. This was our second time staying and will always come back!

Beauty by the Sea

5 on June 22, 2016

My daughter & I stayed here for an overnight getaway after she graduated college. We thoroughly enjoyed it! It was so peaceful hanging out on the porch & the front lawn, our room was very comfortable & we had fun exploring the house as there was only one other couple there that night (this was before Memorial Weekend). We got to watch our own movie in the theater & we enjoyed breakfast in the sunny breakfast room. Everyone was very friendly & my daughter loved the little snack table in the dining room. There is a large public parking lot across from the Inn & easy access to the beach. If you have the opportunity, it's a great place to stay. We will definitely be returning!

A Little Gem

Comfy and quiet! Just steps from the beach! Outstanding breakfast! And best of all a friendly competent staff! We shall return!

Third Floor Room

We enjoyed our stay at Cashelmara Inn. The location, the building, the decor are all beautiful. Katy, who met us, was very cheerful despite being inundated with phone calls. Our third floor room #34 was not listed as a small room, but it was to my eyes. The bathroom was also petite and - the shower? Don't drop anything and need to pick it up, or ladies, forget shaving your legs in the shower. So if size is not what matters to you, book a small room, but I recommend the larger rooms if you're not pint-sized.

Wonderful Place

This is a great place to stay. I have come here three summers in a row with my family. It is comfortable and the staff is excellent. Mary and her staff bend over backwards to help you. They also remember you from year to year. Their breakfast is the best I have ever had at a B&B--table service from a menu and all food is cooked to order. We will back.

Great time with my Mom!

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

5 on May 12, 2016

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!

Perfect Stay

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!!
