Immaculate & Great Location

4.2 on July 06, 2016

I would recommend this B&B to anyone and I'm hard to please, when it comes to accommodations. The inn is immaculate and updated. Though I did not have any breakfast, my boyfriend and the other guests said it was outstanding. The tables were packed each morning and the porch seating is ingenious (2 or 4-seat tables are out on the covered wrap around porch, which is wonderful.) If you ever fret about the quality and comfort of beds at inns/B&Bs, don't even think about it - we actually meant to ask the brand/model of mattress for our own house because we're in the market for a new one! I wish we hadn't forget to ask/check, I guess we'll just have to go back. Note that it is a 10-minute walk to the beach, probably not great if you have a big family and a lot of stuff to lug - but they do have trolley carts you can borrow. We enjoy the walk, so it was great for us and I'd rather be closer to Main Street and the dining for the evening (it's about 60 seconds to main street and Kaya's Kitchen, virtually next door, is a must visit spot for vegetarian/vegan cuisine.)


Worth the trip!

This Inn provided us a beautifully appointed room with every amenity we could imagine, a fantastic breakfast and afternoon tea, information about the area, and free bikes, to boot! Conveniently located, it is near the beach and town. We slept well on the comfortable bed and enjoyed delicious and beautifully presented food. Definitely worth the trip!


Top notch B&B in Belmar, NJ

Wonderful 2-night stay. Great location on 10th Avenue - just a short walk to beach and the center of town. Homemade breakfast is excellent. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Innkeepers are very welcoming and know the area.


Fabulous weekend at TBI

I stayed at the Tandem Bike Inn last weekend for a family affair. The b&b is fantastic. Location is perfect, amenities top notch, and the food was outstanding. everything is within walking location, so you just have to park your car and enjoy all the sites and sounds of Belmar and the beach!!! Anne Marie and Mike are perfect host and hostess. Eager to return!

If you are looking for an immaculate, welcoming and relaxing getaway, this is the place! The innkeepers were lovely as they tended to your every need but also respected your space. The homemade snacks and breakfast were delicious!! Best pancakes I ever had!! We will definitely go back to this fabulous Inn! Beth and Ed


Beautiful Stay As usual

I enjoyed my stay with Tandem Bike inn and AnnMarie and Mike were a delight as usually. AnnMarie's breakfast of pancakes and scramble eggs mixed with hash browns was delicious! There was one unruly guest who was making noise in the middle of the night until the early morning. However, Mike immediately addressed and resolved the problem the next morning with that guest. Overall, my stay was a pleasure as always.


Cozy in the winter

4.2 on March 05, 2015

We stayed at the Tandem Bike Inn during one of the coldest weekends in the history of Belmar. Suffice it to say, we didn't go out much. We were more than happy to relax around our room at the common area though. Our hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful. We'd highly recommend staying here, even if the weather doesn't permit you to go outdoors.


Wonderful stay at a cozy b&b

5 on January 23, 2015

Mike and Anne Marie were wonderfully hospitable and kind during our stay. We were there during the off season and the service was just excellent! Nothing was compromised or cut back even though we were the only guests on the evening that we stayed. We notified them only when we arrived that my husband was gluten-free and they went out of their way to make sure that he had snacks and plenty to eat. The room was beautifully decorated and had one of the most comfortable beds ever. Mike took the time to show us how everything worked before letting us settle in. Highly recommended and would definitely stay there again!


Großartiges B&B in wunderbarer Umgebung

5 on November 09, 2014

Wir hatten das Tandem Bike Inn als Abschluss unserer USA-Reise gebucht. Angetroffen haben wir ein schönes Haus mit sehr hübsch und geschmackvoll eingerichteten Zimmern. Alles war absolut ordentlich und sauber. Die Gastgeber gaben uns Tipps für die Umgebung. Der Strand aber auch viele Restaurants sind fußläufig erreichbar. Es lagen extra Handtücher für den Strandbesuch bereit und nachmittags gab es Kaffee und Carrot Cake. Das Frühstück konnten wir auf der Veranda einnehmen und war sehr, sehr lecker. Wenn man ein Haus sucht, in dem man entspannen kann, sich rundrum wohlfühlen möchte, dann ist das Tandem Bike Inn genau das Richtige. Ankommen und wohlfühlen. Jederzeit gerne wieder.
