Great place to get away

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in October 2016. We stayed in room 8 on the third floor. The room is quite spacious, including a full sized bed, a sitting area, and a private bathroom. Because the room is on a corner, there is a wonderful breeze through the room. Viktoria is very welcoming, always making sure everyone is comfortable and enjoying their stay. The breakfast spread is fantastic, offering a variety of sweet and savory dishes. We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Best B&B on the Jersey Shore

You simply can't get a better deal or food or hostess! Nice, quiet area 1 block from beach. They provide beach towels, chairs and bikes! Breakfast is different every morning and FABULOUS! Restaurant, shopping and an incredible ice cream place all within walking distance. Not commercialized and great for families or a couple looking for a little solitude without the chaos of the more resort type beaches. A must try!

Carriage House - Room 1

It was a good balance between cost, quality & convenience (location to beach & town). Balcony, 2nd floor porch was nice & had view of Ocean. Inn keepers were pleasant & flexible with our needs. Breakfast was good & filling. We would stay there again!

B & B Extraordinaire

What a fabulous experience we had at the Carriage House! Our 2 night stay included a lovely, comfortable, clean room with two really spectacular breakfasts. The front porch is wonderful where one can experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the seashore. The hosts are friendly and accommodating. This vacation was really a treat, and the Carriage House was a big reason why. Highly recommend.

Great Time

This was my husband and my first time choosing a Bed and Breakfast getaway. We found it to be very relaxing and enjoyable. The house was beautiful and very comfortable. The owners Kathi and Phil were friendly and served a wonderful healthy delicious breakfast. We would visit again.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

We had an absolutely wonderful time. Phil and Kathi run a comfortable and relaxing place. The breakfasts are superb and quite filling. It certainly was a home away from home atmosphere, except that someone was there to take care of you. Hoping to go back sometime.

Beautiful & Hospitable

Beautifully decorated B&B. Each room has AC unit in the window. Guests have access to a lovely kitchen 24/7. Best part was the beautiful breakfast. Ideal for a mother- daughter beach weekend getaway.

Great B&B in Ocean Grove

This is now one of my favorite rooms I would call it the sky box. It is sky blue, it has a gorgeous ocean view and when it is sunny it feels like you are outside. There are three windows and it is on the corner of the house so it gets the most sun. This room is my dream princess room, I hope everyone loves it as much as I. The room has a trundle bed therefore is very versatile. The trundle can open to make two twin beds or attached for one big double bed. It has a new bathroom with stand up shower and it is on the third floor.
