My Best friend moved back home to the Town of Forked River to take care of his Mom who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. After a long draining battle she passed away last week and I found myself needing a place to stay for the weekend in Forked River to attend the Funeral Services and to lend support to my Friend. I did a quick Online search for a place to stay and I stumbled across the Inn at Rivers Edge which was less than 2 miles from my friend’s home and having been pressed for time I simply booked a room for the weekend and hoped for the Best. It was a sad and drawn out weekend helping my friend mourn the loss of his Mother but having a room to go back to at the Inn at Rivers Edge was the perfect tonic to pick my spirits up. Their dog Jane greets you each time with a toy in her mouth and Love in her Heart. The owner Patty is a warm gentle Soul who made me feel as if I was staying at a loved one’s house instead of a Hotel. I stayed in The Captains Quarters Suite and it has a Southern exposure and it’s bathed in Sun light. It also has a deck you can sit out on and enjoy the Sunset. Patty made a delicious breakfast each morning and the dining table has a view of the river. When I booked a room for the weekend in a hurry I had hoped for the Best and in the end I did get the Best ! Thank You Patty !!!

We were attending a family party in Lacey and stayed at the Inn for just one night! How I wish we could have stayed for a few days! From the moment we arrived Patty made us feel like we were home. We stayed in the Captains room and it was spacious, clean and perfect in every way. The terrace was a delightful surprise and we enjoyed watching the boats go by. Being on a restricted diet I was surprised when Patty took the time to make a gluten free breakfast for just for me ! How thoughtful! We'll be back. And soon!! ~ J. J. Caroccia

The breakfast was very good and The service was Great !! Pat and Paul went out of their way to make us feel at home. Will go back again!! Thank You Scott & Jill Brogue, Pa

Home away from home feel at this intimate beautiful B&B hosted by a great couple who made you feel immediately welcome, comfortable and at home! My husband and I loved the feel of a smaller B&B w/ only 3 rooms to rent out and all roomy, warm, inviting and great views! We had the amazing spacious luxurious Captain's Quarters Suite w/ a bed to fall in love with not to mention jacuzzi tub and huge shower!! We had incredible views of the marina, watched the boats come in / out from our private balcony w/ table and chairs to enjoy. Bob and Patty were the best hosts! Breakfast was gourmet-like. A baked apple fresh out of the oven to start. Brought me back to the days of my childhood followed by scrumptous pumpkin/cranberry pancakes accompanied with apple smoked chicken sausage, fresh coffee, tea and orange juice. Dinner was amazing across the street at Captains Inn w/ an extensive seafood menu, great staff & live music & we got a discount because we were staying at the Inn! We will definitely be back! Thank you Bob & Patty for a great weekend getaway close to home! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Words cannot express how incredibly beautiful this Inn is!!!! We stayed 4 days and 3 nights there for our 32nd anniversary. The Captains Quarters Suite was better than a 5-star hotel. Immaculate house, great food, wonderful hosts and a very special dog, Jane. We will definately recommend this Inn to all our friends and relatives and are looking forward our next stay there. Bob was very knowledgable about the history of Forked River. JACK & LYNN JACILLA BROOKLYN, N.Y. JULY 28-JULY 31, 2014

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at this beautiful home right on the water. The accomdations were very comfortable and everything a guest could want was offered. The breakfasts were gourmet and healthy. This was the truly the best and B&B we have ever stayed at. Hats off to Patyy and Bob for being such wonderful hosts. They were very pleasant and helpful. We will be going back to stay again for sure!

The Inn at Rivers Edge was a delightful getaway. We enjoyed the friendliness of Bob and Patty, the tasty breakfast, the close proximity to a restaurant and the peace and quiet. We would definitely book in here again.

Wasn't quite sure what to expect, this being our first B&B experience. We were completely blown away from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. Clean, clean, clean! Great view, great location. Proprietors Bobby & Patty felt like friends who happen to cook like professional gourmet chefs! So much more to offer than a motel room (including the price)! Totally recommend staying here.

The owners, Bob and Patty were wonderfully accommodating!!! The place definitely met our expectations. When we walked into the house, I felt like we were visiting friends and not staying in a hotel. It was such a warm experience. The rooms were exactly like the pictures on their website and we were treated to a wonderful breakfast the next morning.

An all around outstanding place to stay! Stayed in the Captain's Quarters Suite - it was very bright and spacious, with a beautiful river view. Loved sitting out on our own private balcony and watching the boats glide by. Great location - within walking distance of the Captain's Inn (and tiki bar) where you're guaranteed to have an excellent, fresh seafood dinner. Just down the road, be sure to check out Jersey Coastal Adventures and have Captain Dave take you out on the Barnegat Bay for a sunset sail - an experience you will never forget! The hosts will make you feel right at home and the breakfast is just too good to be true. One of the best long weekends we've ever had - will be back next summer for sure!

My best friend just got married across the street at the Captains Inn and she booked the night before and night of at the B&B. I stayed with her the night before and as soon as we pulled into the driveway Bob was right there to help with anything we needed. Both Bob and Patty are wonderful welcoming people. The B&B is wonderful and I wish I knew about this place before. Breakfast was delicious and getting ready there was so comfortable. He ordered us lunch and they were both very accommodating! Great place, great people! Thanks for the wonderful stay!

We drove up to this Inn and felt like we came home. Bob and Patty were incredibly accomodating and the rooms were perfect (we took all three!). The homemade breakfast was more than you could imagine - they are quite the chefs! The house was so clean and welcoming. We look forward to visiting this B & B again.

We had such a wonderful time here. My husband and I slept comfortable, relaxed and enjoyed our stay. The sunset is amazing from the rooms porch. We had a wonderful take out dinner out there and then watched a perfect susnet. We took a few morning coffees and night time snacks out on the porch too. What a beautiful water view. This Inn is so nicely decorated. The innkeepers are just such a delight. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and we will go back again, hopefully in the early fall.

This B & B is magnificent and charming, and we agree that so are the owners. The photos you see on line are nothing compared to the real deal. It is beautiful. Very relaxing atmosphere and immaculately kept. Highest recommendations possible.

A great place to stay -- very friendly and welcoming. The room was great and the company was even better. For breakfast, ask for the most amazing French toast ever! Easily the best food I have ever had at any bed & breakfast I've ever stayed in.

Great location for the view as well as access to conveniences, dining, and attractions. This is a beautiful, well-decorated, and very peaceful little place that gave me complete rest like I haven't had in years. The hosts are wonderful folks, who made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. These are the kind of people you would love to have as friends. Bob cooks one fine breakfast - this could be the high point of your day! I live in Maine now, but grew up in New Jersey. The Inn at Rivers Edge puts New Jersey on my list of vacation destinations. (I never thought I would think that way of my home state!) Perhaps my best experience with travel accommodations - what more can I say?.

very nice B&B to stay at.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn, while we helped my mother-in-law prepare to move. Finding the Inn was a blessing. Aside from the convenience (under 2 miles from Mom's house), the warmth and beauty of the Inn blew us away. Bob and Patty (and Captain) are wonderful hosts. Their attention to detail, and obvious love for what they do, make this a wonderful hideaway. In fact, we plan to return very soon. Lina & Tom

My husband and I just returned from a stay at the Inn at Rivers Edge Marina, and I didn't want to waste any time writing a review for such a special place! The hosts are delightful and our breakfast was fabulous. Our room was beautifully appointed, with a wonderful balcony that looked out over the marina. The bed was luxurious and comfortable, and the bathroom tiles make you feel like you've escaped to an elegant island getaway. In addition, I would have to rate this as the cleanest place I've ever stayed. My husband and I were celebrating our 10th anniversary, and they even had a dozen red roses in our room! There are also some very nice restaurants nearby. Can't recommend this place enough . . .

I was looking for someplace within a short distance to Island Beach State Park. However, looking at the motel prices and requirement to stay 3 days minimum during the height of summer, decided to take a chance here. Had I known what it would be like, I wouldn't have wasted the time to look anywhere else. A charming Victorian, elegantly decorated, wonderfully comfortable, and extremely reasonable, our stay could not have been better - my ladyfriend's comment: "It was a perfect weekend!". Even the breakfast was wonderful. Having a great restaurant within walking distance was a real plus (with a discount for staying at the Inn), and Patty and Bob's hospitality made it a quick favorite with us! In the words of Arnie, "We'll be bock!" - Tom

I am a traveling sales representative and have stayed in hotels,etc in 36 states. So, you can call me well traveled. I took my wife away for holiday to south shore New Jersey. I wanted something different then my everyday lifestyle of hotels. Thought I give the Inn at Rivers Edge Marina a try. Today looking back at my stay, it was the best decision I made in a long time. I will recommend the Inn at Rivers Edge Marina to anyone. Your stay will start of with a warm welcome. And if you enjoy a good breakfast, you don't have to worry about leaving home hungry. The rooms are clean and you are guaranteed a sound sleep on the comfortable bed. The location is great. In walking distance to The Captains Inn Restaurant and Tiki Bar. Thanks a million Bob and Patty. Richard Ludlow, MA
