Marj & John could not have been nicer or easier to work with a get to know in such a short amount of time. We shared stories about so many things and learned a great deal about Ocean City, town history, living there all year, B & B's, etc. Breakfast was delicious and great to wake up to each morning and coming in and out of the house at any time worked nicely too. The house decor was warm and quite interesting. I loved shooting a couple of games of pool on the pool table...beach badges were great to use, as well as, the old bikes! The house is clean and cool for the most part...if you stay in the Tulip room just watch your head on the natural slope of the roof angled walls....I forgot how tall I was and how low a couple of those were....but it is a super cute room for an anniversary weekend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Northwood Inn. The location was perfect and the hospitality was off the charts. John steered us to a perfect birding spot and introduced us to the museum which was fascinating. John is very knowledgeable about the history of Ocean City, which provided interesting discourse at breakfast. The bikes were a perfect mode of transportation and being there in mid May allowed us to bike on the boardwalk all day. The food was good too – especially the eggs that John made

This is a true Bed and Breakfast experience from the time you get there and are greeting by the Owner/Operators with friendly smiles, asking how our trip was, a tour of the house, what is happening event wise in Ocean City. They, and there staff were very polite, professional, well spoken, available, engaged, and friendly during our entire stay. Making each guest to feel as if they were the most important guest. The room although on a slightly smaller size was very comfortable for 2 being very well kept, clean. with comfy beds, and pillow's, and decorated very distinguished. There were other options for suites and larger room's although I would get the same room again because the house is large, well appointed with nice, comfortable sitting room, dining area, billiard room, and ample outside, rooftop deck with Whirlpool, patio, and covered porch area. All of which got a tour of my the Owners upon arrival. The breakfast was a culinary delight with warm tasty baked muffins, fresh ripe fruit, coffee, juice, and a very tasty different gourmet hot meal each morning all served by the owners, and staff. This was one of the best B & B experiences that I have ever had. Located close to the Boardwalk/Beach in a nice area of OC, and extremely well priced,

Great place, very clean, wonderful owners and staff. Convenient walk to Beach and shops, or use bikes offered for free by the owners. This home was totally gutted before all new renovations were done. It is pristenely maintained and just a pleasant environment to be in.

My friend and I stayed at Northwood on two occassions. The first time, John phoned in reservations for us at the Inlet and we got superior service in addition to a great breakfast and wonderful hospitality. On our second visit, Marge was our hostess. Marge was great...providing a super breakfast and a selection of DVDs to choose from for our evening entertainment.

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. Marj and John were very accommodating. The food was excellent and the fruits were farm fresh. We will be back for another weekend getaway.

This was a satisfactory first experience staying at a B&B. I wanted to stay somewhere more cozy than a hotel. The room & private bath was very clean. I rated the room at 'met expectations' because it was just as the pictures showed..a little bigger would had been better for me. Good decorating taste. The rooftop hot tub is perfect for stargazing after a long day. I consider it a more modern B&B. You won't find any stuffy, overlaced rooms w/horrible wallpaper here! We actually did not take advantage of the breakfast. We preferred to sleep in & our privacy was respected.

If you are looking for a wonderful B&B in Ocean City, look no further. The Northwood Inn is a lovely refinished old Victorian home that is cozy and comfortable. Marg and John are wonderful owners and they take such great care of their guests. They have bikes you can take out for a ride, beach chairs for your use, a roof top whirlpool spa and a pool table, just to name a few things. The breakfasts are always the best and so delicious. We look forward to our yearly visit and always have the best time.

I've been coming to Ocean City since childhood with my family and this was my first stay at a B&B. My husband and I loved everything about the Northwood Inn--wonderful hosts, Marj and John, a fabulous location (never used our car once), rooftop hot tub, massages on site, and much more. John even recommended a place to get a haircut that turned out great! We'll definitely stay there again if we don't rent a house next summer.

My wife Marie and I first visited The Northwood ten years ago and have spent many enjoyable summer weeks/brief getaways there since. Before our first visit, we toured several of the nicer B&Bs in O.C. What we noticed then, and what we've appreciated ever since, is the uncommon combination of class/style and a completely relaxed atmosphere. John/Marj are the best possible hosts---extremely friendly and accommodating, engaging conversationalists, and very laid back. If invited, John will share his rich knowledge of OC history---he's a born storyteller---and Marj's breakfast creations are unique and delicious; both are delightful people. One of the small details I particularly love about the Northwood is the breakfast arrangement---a bright, cozy area where pleasant chat always abounds, but without a strictly regulated seating time or required communal dining. There are individual tables, but they're in close enough proximity to allow the opportunity to meet new people---and the Northwood has a knack for attracting an interesting and down to earth collection of guests---total absence of the stuffiness you sometimes find elsewhere. We immediately felt at home here and nothing has changed. Great people, great place to kick back and get refreshed.

Simply stated its just a beautiful home. The Loepers are just wonderful people. My impression is that this is a passion for them, not just a business. The breakfast was out of this world! The location is close to the beach. Attention to detail is what impressed me most. I am not a natural small talker, but I felt right at home - not a usually for me.

We've been staying at the Northwood Inn for years. It's the best place to stay in OCNJ! The Loepers are friendly and very knowledgeable. Breakfasts are yummy! The rooms are very pretty and very comfortable. We've taken to staying in one of the 2 suites, but all of the rooms are very pretty. The location is just the best - a short walk to the Boardwalk, but away from the main, heavy traffic parts of town and accompanying noise. We love the rooftop jacuzzi and the wrap-around porch. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

It is easy to click with the owners at the Northwood. Marj and John have created an atmosphere that exudes welcome and relaxation. The amenities make it fun and eventful. Its friendly here, and still your provided with the Space you need for a Retreat away from the everyday. This place is clean, i have been in several different rooms and have never been disappointed. Morning breakfast is a treat, and the Northwood is close to the beach. Other B&B's I've been to do not compare.

We stayed at other B & Bs in Ocean City. Four years ago we found Northwood Inn. We go back every year and this year we are going twice. It is like a home away from home--all you want or need!! The owners make you feel at home and when you leave you have two new friends. It is neat and clean and I enjoy the breakfast. The guests are friendly and we enyoy talking at breakfast. The food is good !!!
