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!

My wife and I toured lighthouses north of Avon-by-the-sea on Sunday and south on Monday. We had a wonderful dinner in Asbury Park. When we returned to the inn,we took a couple blankets from the on-site theater and enjoyed a bottle of wine on the comfortable front porch. Breakfast the next morning was both delicious and filling. The views of the ocean and lake from the window seat in our third floor room were wonderful. Everyone we encountered,both staff and fellow guests,could not have been any nicer. Places like the Cashelmara Inn are why people choose to stay at a bed and breakfast.We cant wait to return.
