My stay at A Dream By The Sea was perfect. A spotless room. Which was well appointed and a great host in Michelle. Also the restaurants Michelle recommended were amazing. I'd go back. Al Magliano

Our weekend at A Dream by the Sea was fabulous! The Mr Sandman suite was very nicely decorated and the bed was very comfy! Michele was very friendly. The breakfast was so delicious! Thank you and hope to visit again soon!

What a pleasant surprise this B&B turned out to be! In addition to an elegant breakfast with all the trimmings, from the ocean air to the fresh local ingredients, we struck it rich just a couple short blocks from the Atlantic. One highlight included exploring the neighborhood and beyond on bikes. Looking forward to our next getaway at Michelle's B&B.

Great Night Away

5 on August 25, 2013

I took my 2 daughters away to Belmar for one night and stayed at A Dream by the Sea. It was a perfect day and night. The room was so clean and spacious. We felt at home. We walked a few blocks to the beach and enjoyed the area. Dinner was a short walk in town, Michelle made us a wonderful breakfast and we sat out on the porch. The perfect short get away. Thanks Michelle we will certainly stay again.

Great weekend and first B&B experience

4.8 on August 12, 2013

Stayed here on a Saturday night and had a great first experience at a B&B. They were very accommodating, providing us with beach badges, bag, and towels (including letting us use the badges on the day we checked out). The room was spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed from the moment we checked in. The breakfast was fantastic. I would certainly stay here again and recommend it to friends / family.

A great little get away

Owner, Michelle anticipated every need and was so accommodating. She makes an incredible breakfast, really more like brunch. Everything is organic and very tasty. You won't be hungry until dinner. I celebrated my birthday when we were there and she did everything to make it very special.

A Dream, but not by the Sea

3.4 on July 26, 2013

Not close enough to walk to beach, closer to the highway end of town. Expected a "beach" style home, but it is really just another house. Service was good, breakfast was outstanding, room was only so-so.

Innkeeper Response
I'm sorry she did not like the house but it is one of the oldest beach houses in Belmar. Late 1800's/early 1900's. Each suite is very large and different in it's way with very comfy beds and beautiful private bathrooms. Breakfast is organic farm to table dining. Always fresh berries, yogurts grass fed meats free range eggs and accommodating all different dietary needs. The Inn is located in the heart of Belmar the town square is only a half a block with an adorable farmers market on Sat. and live music every Monday & Friday night. All great restaurants walking distance including the beach! People are always walking to and from the beach on the tree lined street. The Inn is approximately 3 to 4 miles from the Highways 195 and route 18 or garden State parkway. I found that you can't please the world you can only try but there will be that one who will never be happy. I want to thank all my past guests for their kind words and loyalties. Love, Michelle
