GREAT B&B in Beach Haven, NJ

5 on August 23, 2017

This B&B is a great find. Joanne is a great hostess and is always available for any questions you may have. The food is FABULOUS with a buffet which includes casseroles, apple cinnamon oatmeal, muffins, fruit and much more. The staff is MORE than accommodating and it is very clean and comfortable. We will be returning next year....


Great location

Everything from the room, breath fast and staff made our stay very enjoyable. The Island Guest House is centrally located and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, beach and attractions. We are looking forward to next year for another stay at the Island Guest House.


5 stars

We had a great time! Staying in a clean and beautiful house made the stay even better. Breakfast was great and it was something different daily. The owners always made sure we had what we needed. We loved the bikes , beach chairs , and tags that came with the stay .


Highly Recommend

The Island Guest House was an amazing experience for my wife an I for a long weekend. Breakfast in the morning was fresh everyday and they had several beach cruisers you would be able to use all day / night to get around the island. Would definitely recommend and will use in the future. Pet friendly as well!

my daughter future husband rented the entire house for their wedding weekend and mark and joann were great . The breakfast was great and maid service perfect. Joann and mark went out of their way to make this a special weekend for all of the families and friends


Charming!

4.8 on September 13, 2016

We really enjoyed our stay in this charming inn. We had one of the smaller rooms, but it was quite large enough for us to be comfortable. It was tastefully furnished and had a flat-screen TV. The common areas, including the patio, were lovely and everything was immaculate. Joanne, Mark, and the staff did a great job making us feel welcome. I loved having access to a selection of bicycles, as well as the "Bathhouse Special," which allowed guests for $10 p.p. to have access to the outdoor shower and amenities after checkout time.


Best Place To Stay In LBI

5 on September 12, 2016

To say that when you stay at this bed & Breakfast its like staying at home is an understatement. My fiance and I loved every second we spent in this B&B and we would recommend anyone to stay there any day of the week and twice on Sundays! The rooms are Marine clean (I am a Marine, I know what clean is) the owners/staff make you feel like family and the location is perfect!


Weekend Getaway!

5 on September 12, 2016

Perfect little getaway
