We spent a wonderfully relaxing overnight stay here and Mike + Anne Marie couldn't have been better hosts and their Inn is charming, well set-up, and very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and filling; and they always had beverage and cookie service available. We'd definitely go back...hopefully sometime soon.

We recently stayed at the Tandem Bike Inn in Belmar, NJ for my 60th birthday surprise. (I got to fly vintage WWII airplanes at a nearby airport.) The Tandem Bike Inn was essentially perfect. There was nothing that could have possibly been better. The Inn itself is modern in appearance yet classic. The rooms were large and the beds comfortable. Mike and Ann Marie have thought of everything. There is off-street parking, bikes available for guest use, as well as items for the beach including towels and umbrellas. The food was fantastic. I assume Ann Marie was doing all the cooking and it was simply fantastic. There were muffins, fruit and oatmeal available early, and a hot breakfast later. Drinks were available all the time. What reallly put this place over the top however, was the helpfulness of Mike and Ann Marie. Two of the three mornings we were there, we needed to go out somewhat early, and Ann Marie made breakfast early for us. Mike got us reservations at a great local restaurant. Mike was helpful in giving us local advice and information. Mike even listened patiently to my tales of flying a B-17 Flying Fortress and a P-51 Mustang! But Mike and Ann Marie were incredible hosts, thinking of their guests at all times and taking care of them. We will be returning to Belmar!

As always, AnnMarie and Mike Hayes made me feel very welcome. I will always stay with these wonderful people because they work intensely to provide superb service. In my opinion, staying at the Tandem Bike Inn is better than staying at a hotel.

The Tandem Bike Inn is a treasure! Mike and Anne Marie were gracious, informative and made us feel completely welcomed to the inn. The whole inn has obviously been recently renovated, is wonderfully decorated, and was SPOTLESS! The breakfasts were delicious. Mike and Anne Marie were also able to answer all of our questions about Belmar and the New Jersey environs, and their dinner recommendations were "spot on". We'll be back to Belmar, that's for sure!

We live in NJ and wanted to do a nearby getaway (just over an hour) to celebrate our anniversary. After reading all the reviews on The Tandem Bike Inn we decided to stay here. The name was of interest as we are bikers. We stayed 2 nights and had a wonderful relaxing time - Belmar is a beautiful town with wonderful restaurants and shops. Anne Marie and Michael are the perfect hosts - Anne Marie's cooking was a real treat with scrumptious breakfasts and delicious cookies/treats at tea time. We highly recommend staying at this fabulous B&B. We also rode a tandem bike for the first time - this B&B generously provides both tandem and regular bikes for their guests.

We had never stayed in northern New Jersey and what a wonderful place to stay for the first time. Anne Marie and Mike were fabulous hosts. Once you get there you really don't need a car unless you would like to go site seeing. The beach was within walking distance and beach chairs, umbrellas and carts were all available for guests use. The neighborhood was quiet and very centrally located. There were numerous restaurants and shops all within walking distance. We will definitely be returning to the Tandem Bike Inn. And yes there are bikes and even a tandem bike for guests to use. Thank you Ann Marie and Mike for opening your home for all to enjoy!

Top notch, well, everything. Mike & Anne Marie are welcoming and helpful and keep a spectacularly clean inn. The decor is contemporary and very, very comfortable. TBI is just wonderful and I will be back, I just hope I can get a room since I've already told everyone I know about how awesome it was. Oh, and Anne Marie's breakfast and afternoon snacks are delicious!

This is one of the best B&B's I have ever visited. The Hayes are very hospitable hosts that went out of their to make sure my "gluten free" girlfriend had plenty of gluten free food options for tea and breakfast. Rooms and food were amazing. Its about a 10 minute walk to the the beach and there are plenty of fantastic eating establishments close by. Do not hesitate to book a room here.

Anne Marie & Michael Hayes
Anne Marie and Mike are avid tandem bikers and can be seen peddling around town on their antique orange bike. They also love to walk around town, especially down by the ocean, with their two dogs, Riley and Lucy, both rescues. Relaxing on the front porch with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and watching the sun go down is a favorite way to end the day.
