Luxurious B&B

5 on September 03, 2018

Perfectly relaxing night spent in one of the most beautiful bed and breakfasts I’ve ever seen. Breakfast the next morning was to die for. We will definitely be back!

Great stay at the Cottage!

If you play piano, be prepared to play. Please was quite nice and the breakfast was superb.

Exceptional in every way!

5 on August 02, 2018

We LOVE Tower Cottage! This was our 3rd visit this year and our 4th overall. Simply the BEST bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in! The hosts, Maureen and Tony, go above and beyond to welcome guests and make your stay comfortable! Everything about Tower Cottage is outstanding, the attention to detail is incredible! The rooms are all gorgeous and beautifully decorated. The beds are incredibly comfortable with luxurious linens and pillows. The gourmet breakfasts are delicious and served on fine china and crystal. There are delicious baked treats in the afternoon and evening too! The beach is a short walk and the Inn provides Beach badges, a nice tote bag with water, towels and granola bars. The front porch is relaxing and inviting too especially on the morning and early evening. Maureen and Tony are happy to recommend area restaurants; we’ve loved each one they suggested! We always feel relaxed and rejuvenated after a stay here and look forward to many more visits! We highly recommend!

Great service ,Wonderful Breakfast

Wonderful Anniversary!!

5 on May 17, 2018

My girlfriend and I spent our 1 year anniversary at the Tower Cottage last weekend, everything was exceptional!! From the beautiful room, delicious breakfast, and other accommodaties, everything was perfect. They even helped me to surprise my girlfriend with roses in our room when we came back after dinner. Highly recommend!!!!

Tony and Maureen are like visiting family

5 on March 29, 2018

This is our 5th stay at Tower Cottage and each stay is as good at the previous ones. It is a refreshing weekend that charges our batteries during the New Jersey winter.

This was our third time staying at The Tower Cottage and we can't wait to return again. It was wonderful as always!

Quaint and clean

4.8 on February 11, 2018

Room was cozy and comfortable with updated decor. Breakfast was delicious and more than generous portions. Impressive overall. Quiet, residential location, close to beach. Tony is a gracious and friendly host.


5 on December 20, 2017

This is by far the best Bed and Breakfast out there. I took my wife for a weekend getaway, and Tony and Maureen did not disappoint. The service is amazing. Tony helped when the TV was not working. Maureen made treats for us, despite her not feeling well. It was truly awesome, and we do plan to return!!! The rooms were spotless, and it was just incredible. We LOVE the Tower Cottage!!!

Anniversary Getaway

4.8 on November 06, 2017

My husband and I wanted a nice anniversary getaway that wasn’t too far from our home in NJ. Tower Cottage was a phenomenal experience for several reasons. The Innkeeper Tony and his wife are amazing hosts who take hospitality to new levels. Their conversation, as well as the other couples who stayed that weekend made this an amazing experience. The food was absolutely outstanding and the proximity to the beach was superb. I look forward to future visits to this amazing location.

We'll surely return to The Tower Cottage B&B

4.6 on October 19, 2017

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely 2 night stay at the Tower Cottage. The grounds are beautiful and seasonally decorated inside and out - making for a very cheery arrival. Maureen greeted us, showed us around the Inn and our room - everything is tastefully appointed. The linen's, towels and toiletry items are of high quality and includes very comfortable bathrobes. We were delightfully surprised by the beautifully presented gourmet breakfasts. Picture perfect and so delicious!! So satisfying, we didn't eat again until dinner. And the Innkeepers, Maureen and Tony are friendly and interesting. It's quite clear their main focus is for their guests to enjoy their visit to the fullest. The location is great - 2 blocks from the ocean and boardwalk. Early October is quiet time at the beach, but the shore provided for enjoyable long walks and exhilarating surf splashing. Pleasant Point Beach also has an abundance of high quality restaurants to enjoy and parks and activities within a short drive. Needless to say we'll visit again. Sooner than later, I hope!

Priceless Stay at a "Friend's" Home

5 on September 17, 2017

This was my first B&B experience. It was nothing like going to a hotel. At the end of the experience, you felt like you stayed at a friend's house with extra tender loving care. When it was time to leave, you don't want to. That's what I call PRICELESS. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Maureen. The greeting was warm and informal. None of the standard hotel registration process. Since we arrived early evening, Maureen had already put out homemade pastries for the day, cookies and brownies. Later that night, Maureen brought out homemade puff pastry. These were all very delicious, and the puff pastry was decadent. Maureen can cater you're preference, e.g.: gluten free, sugar free, etc. The next morning, we had breakfast. It was out of the work. I believe it was four course but whose counting. Everything was homemade and gourmet. Maureen definitely can cook. Even though the Tower Cottage is not on the boardwalk, it was not far. Walk five minutes, and you are at the Jenkinson boardwalk. That actually is the other attraction. The Cottage is surrounded by houses which makes you feel like you are at home walking the neighborhood. The room we stayed in was Victorian Garden. Very well appointed. Well rested during the 2 night stay. Enjoyed the one person whirlpool and went to bed on the king size bed. Room recommendation: If king bed is preferred, you are limited to the Victorian Garden or Wellington Manor. I would go with the Victorian Garden since it has an one person whirlpool. If bed size is flexible, I recommend Versailles per night since the whirlpool and shower is the largest. If you prefer the ultimate privacy, then I recommend Tower Suite.

Home Away From Home, Only Better

5 on September 02, 2017

We've never found a B&B like the Tower Cottage. Maureen is a gourmet cook, and she and Tony are so welcoming and pampered us in every way. We just relaxed and enjoyed it all. Beautiful surroundings, very clean, with all the amenities you could want. Breakfast beautifully prepared and presented, and so much food we always skip lunch that day!

Romantic Getaway

5 on July 31, 2017

Elegant Bed and Breakfast! My wife and I only stayed a few nights but everything was fabulous..The room was outstanding and we felt pampered.Last but not least by any means was two magnificent breakfasts. We highly recommend staying here! Tom and Tricia

Wonderful B & B

4.8 on July 13, 2017

The breakfast was amazing. Beautiful accommodations. The innkeeper really makes you feel special. Spotless rooms.

Incredible Stay, fabulous hosts!

5 on July 03, 2017

We had the most incredible stay at Tower Cottage! The owners, Tony and Maureen, are the most gracious hosts and go out of their way to make your stay fabulous! From the warm welcome, to the delicious gourmet breakfast, to the fine china, linens and gorgeous rooms....every detail is perfect! Each room is gorgeous, we got to see the ones that no one had booked during our stay. The inn is immaculately clean and the furnishings are beautiful. Maureen and Tony were happy to make some great local restaurant recommendations. There were yummy cookies and brownies in the afternoon and cheesecake in the evening! The inn is a very short walk to the beach, and they provide badges, towels and chairs. Beautiful wonderful inn, fantastic owners and an all around great place to stay. We can't say enough wonderful things about it! You will not be disappointed!

Outstanding In Every Way

4.0 on June 08, 2017

When staying here, I feel completely at home. Maureen is amazingly attentive. After a walk down to the boardwalk and beach, only a few minutes away, breakfast is a joy - with enough food so that lunch is unnecessary. Special baked treats for tea time, as well as coffee or tea and fruit available all the time, add to the sense of being at home. Such hospitality, in a wonderfully restored, perfectly appointed interior and garden, make for the perfect stay. Every time.

best hidden b&b

5 on May 28, 2017

ideal rooms great food Tony and Maureen made us feel at home and like family cant say enough

Wonderful Stay!

4.8 on May 27, 2017

A lovely inn on a quiet street in Point Pleasant. The rooms are all beautiful and the location is excellent - not far from either the beach or town. The breakfast is one of the best we've ever experienced. The entire facility is just spotless and very nicely renovated. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Hoping to return again in a few months.

outstanding hidden paradise

5 on May 17, 2017

our stay was more than expected clean food was fabulous Tony and Maureen made us feel like family.Its a hidden gem cant say enough will be back

A Wonderful Stay

4.8 on May 17, 2017

Wonderful three-day stay at the Tower Cottage in lovely Point Pleasant Beach! This B&B is incredibly restored - each room is beautiful and unique. All all spotlessly clean. The breakfast here will exceed all of your expectations, beginning with fresh fruit and sorbet. The breakfast entrees were different each day. Our favorite was the frittata. Always available are many home baked treats, such as brownies, cookies and even cheesecake. Located close to both town and the beach. We can't wait to return!

Another Wonderful Stay

4.0 on May 14, 2017

Perfect hospitality, from when I arrived in the evening, and enjoyed treats with tea, until I left, following a wonderful visit, after the most delicious breakfast imaginable. The room was also a treat, from the exceptional four poster with comfortable linens, to a bathroom with every possible amenity I could have needed. In particular, I really enjoyed the full sized bathtub and the sunny filled windows in literally every room, which made for an even warmer stay.

Just Perfect!

4.8 on May 13, 2017

A beautiful three-day stay! Every room in this inn is exquisitely done - it is so difficult to choose. Each has a luxurious bath, many with spa showers and/or soaking tubs. The gourmet breakfast is the best you'll find anywhere. Located close to a pretty seaside town - just about everything is within walking distance. By all means, book the Tower Suite if you can. Be prepared to be pampered!

Another Perfect Stay

4.0 on May 03, 2017

From the wonderful visit with Maureen after my drive there from CT, then catching up the next morning with Tony and Maureen, while enjoying an exceptional breakfast, staying this time in the comfortable and beautifully appointed light-filled Victorian Garden Room, with its soothing lavender blue walls, it was difficult to leave, once again. I look forward to my next stay, as always. -Cinde


5 on May 03, 2017

We stayed in the Tower Suite and it was absolutely amazing. Breakfast was delicious and everyone could not have been nicer. Highly recommend.

A Gem of a BnB in NJ

5 on March 27, 2017

If you're looking for beautiful and romantic rooms, great personal service, and a delicious brunch, then the Tower Cottage Bnb is the place to go. It was a nice, quick getaway from NYC that was close to the beach and boardwalk. It was the perfect weekend escape. My partner and I came here for my 30th birthday and the hosts made sure every detail was covered. Maureen even made a surprise birthday cake. The bnb is within walking distance of the NJT station, the main dining areas, the shopping strip, and of course the beach. There were plenty of nearby antique shops, great seafood restaurants by the waterfront, arcades on the boardwalk -- and Lyft/Uber drivers were available in the area. The rooms were romantic - classic themes, with updated amenities like cable TV and a whirlpool tub for two. Very comfortable beds that allowed for great sleep. The room was a great size. Brunch was absolutely delicious. Tea, coffee, and baked goods were available all throughout the day as an afternoon and late night snack. The hosts were LGBT friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. We will definitely come again.

A wonderful escape down the shore!

5 on February 24, 2017

This place is the perfect place to get away and experience the best bed and breakfast down the jersey shore!

The tower cottage- the tower suite

5 on February 23, 2017

My boyfriend and I have stayed at the tower suite for the past two years for our anniversary. We have loved it each time! It is comfortable, luxurious, and the service is amazing. I will continue to come back for many years to come.

Favorite B&B!

5 on February 22, 2017

My husband and I have stayed at The Cottage Tower Inn twice and have enjoyed our stay both times. Maureen and Anthony are the nicest people and very down to earth. They make you feel like old friends. The food is always delicious and the rooms are beautiful! We can't wait to go back!

Love love loved it

5 on January 30, 2017

My wife and I went for New Years eve for the first time and we gotta say we absolutely loved it. The room, the property,the location and the owners were all incredible !!!! My wife and I go to alot of B&Bs and this is now one of our favs.... Warren & Stephanie

Excellent B&B

5 on December 17, 2016

The place, host, and overall experience was phenomenal!

A most pleasant stay!

5 on November 28, 2016

We loved our stay at The Tower Cottage. Most restful and delicious treats and breakfast in three courses, starting with piping hot fresh brewed coffee and Maureen's pumpkin muffins or scones from heaven! Then a pineapple with fresh fruits and homemade pina colada sorbet. Wow. And then eggs Benedict on croissant or an asparagus frittata. You won't need food again till dinner. Maureen and Tony will recommend great restaurants. Let them make reservations for you. The Poached Pear is a must. The house is a Victorian dream, the beds cozy and romantic and there are televisions in the rooms for movie watching from their DVD collection. We even got to see the cupola lit up at night with Christmas lights. Next time we will choose the Tower Room for ultimate privacy and a jacuzzi tub. But The Wellington and its king sized bed was beautiful. And steps from the dining room for breakfast at the time you choose. A wonderful weekend in a beautiful setting!


5 on November 24, 2016

We loved our stay at the Tower Cottage, although brief, the owners made you feel right at home. Impeccable decor, clean, and great food! Can't wait to go back!

Comfy Room, Incredible Breakfast!

4.0 on November 23, 2016

The Versailles Room was lovely, but the showstopper for the visit was breakfast. Pumpkin spice mini-bundt cake followed by tropical fruit salad and pina colada sorbet followed by asparagus frittata and finished with chocolate covered fruit for dessert! Wonderful!


5 on November 17, 2016

Had to go to point Pleasant for a wedding, that we really were not looking forward to because it was a rushed trip during a very busy time for us. Rather than stay in a hotel we chose this bed-and-breakfast based upon some of the reviews we saw. Let me tell you it was an amazing experience that made the 2 1/2 days stay very memorable . The house was spectacularly clean and the attention to detail in every aspect was amazing from our great hosts, Tony and Maureen. The breakfast that they prepares cannot even be rated on a scale of 1 to 5, they are that good. Would definitely recommend and if we get back to that area of the country that is the only place we would ever think you're staying.

This travel agent was amazed !!

5 on October 24, 2016

Maureen & Tony enchanted us for our "50th. Anniversary" get away with a fabulous experience!! We were awed & amazed at how it "exceeded our expectations". The BEST B&B experience we've ever had, and we've had many!! The food was delicious and wonderfully presented !! The room was cozy, romantic and well appointed. We loved every minute & plan to return soon !!! The love, concern & attention to detail was apparent everywhere!! I highly recommend it !!! Sally Z.

Best B&B experience EVER!!

5 on September 04, 2016

Arrived for 20th anniversary with my wife and beautifully greeted by Maureen, the owner. To say this place is beautiful and well thought out is a huge understatement - the attention to detail from the design, the rooms, the eating area were extraordinary - then to top it off, the best breakfast I can honestly ever remember having. I would recommend the Cottage Tower to anyone - can not remember a more memorable, comfortable and hospitable stay anywhere, ever! Was going to give 4 stars on "value" b/c it was not cheap, but honestly worth every dime and more!

Incredible Get Away Spot with Sublime Hospitality

5 on August 09, 2016

My husband and I just stayed in the Tower Suite at the Tower Cottage this past weekend for a romantic get away. We had an amazing experience. Tony and Maureen (the owners) outdid themselves from the moment we got there until we left. They picked us up from the train station, drove us around, accommodated our dietary restrictions, made outstanding food and baked goods and made us feel like part of their family. Not surprisingly, the Tower Cottage is immaculate and the attention to detail is unsurpassed. We can't wait to go back there again soon!

A Must Stay - An EXQUISITE Experience

5 on April 17, 2016

My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful comments about our stay at The Tower Cottage. The décor is elegant. The cleanliness is superior. The afternoon and evening fresh baked treats are amazing. I only wish I had taken pictures of the phenomenal breakfast. The fresh fruit was displayed in a pineapple. The homemade sorbet was fantastic. My husband is still raving about the delicious stuffed French toast. Maureen and Tony are friendly, interesting, and simply a delight. WE WILL RETURN!!

Fabulous Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on July 27, 2014

We booked the Tower Cottage for our anniversary weekend. Location is wonderful. Rooms are incredible. Service is impeccable. We were 2 blocks from the boardwalk. Maureen and Tony provided beach buggies, beach chairs, towels, beach passes, water and snacks for our visit to the beach. This could not have been easier. Parking was very easy. In our down time, we relaxed in the room watching a DVD provided from their large collections, as well as read on the porch in a rocker. Breakfasts were unparalleled. Personal care was fabulous. We ate dinner at the Prime 13 Restaurant, and were absolutely delighted with the food. We had a most relaxing weekend and thank both Maureen and Tony for a wonderful time

A Definate Six Star Castle!!!!!

5 on August 08, 2013

I Titled The Cottage a six star castle because it is like a dream to my wife and I. The owners of this beautiful cottage are the best host I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, from day one to the end of my stay they were wonderful. My wife and I can't wait to visit again! P.S. Thank you Anthony & Maureen for a wonderful stay at your home. (Gilbert & Nancy Rodriguez)

Our 32nd Anniversary Celebration

4.6 on October 22, 2012

My husband and I spent 1 night at this magnificent Bed and Breakfast. This was our first Bed and Breakfast stay and we can't rave enough about the setting, the food and the wonderful people(Maureen and Tony, the owners, and another couple we met from Philadelphia!) The house was spic and span. Maureen and Tony made us feel like family and couldn't have been more hospitable. The fruit and cheese platter were such a nice touch. We couldn't stop eating all the cookies, cakes and cream puffs(homemade) they left in the dining area. The room was absolutely gorgeous, just loved the decorating! For breakfast, I had asparagas fritatta, which I requested(after reading the review) did not disappoint. It was absolutely delicious. My husband had the Eggs Benedict which he loved. The fruit platter before the actual breakfast was spectacular! We really enjoyed getting to know Maureen and Tony. I would highly recommend this wonderful Bed and Breakfast and hope we get to go back soon!

Absolutely Perfect

5 on September 04, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Tower Cottage to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed in the Tower Suite. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. Everything was just perfect!!! We have stayed at many B&B's in the 20 years that we have been married. The Tower Cottage is by far at the top of our list. Maureen and Tony were two of the nicest inkeepers we have ever met. Our room was just immaculate. The morning breakfasts as well as the homemade muffins, cakes, cookies, etc. were absolutely delicious. They truly made us feel so at home and welcomed. The beach bag packed with beach tags, towels and snacks were such a thoughful touch. We also enjoyed the cheese plate that was delivered to our room as well as the bottle of chilled wine. We will definitely come back again and stay at the Tower Cottage.

Excellent in so many ways!

4.8 on August 25, 2012

The positives: -The room (Tuscan Dreams) was beautiful. The deep tub (with jets) was perfect, and is one of the major reasons I wanted to rent this room in the first place. The overhanging, dim-lit chandelier above the tub was just icing on the cake. Very romantic and beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. -Tony and Maureen (the innkeepers) are just delightful. They do not get in your way if you want to have some quiet, non-social time with your partner; but they are very helpful with finding nice places to eat in the area and for general conversation as well. -Breakfast was simply amazing. Most places do not offer nearly as much food, or a quality of food. I can't help but wonder why they do not open a restaurant of their own! -The small details throughout the building just made this location "feel" like a getaway. -The free beach passes, beach accessories (towels, chairs, umbrella, etc.), and complimentary bottle of wine were just excellent. Being literally 2 blocks away from the beach/boardwalk/and town was perfect as well. The negatives: -The rooms are a little bit small. This is not a huge issue, but it can be intimidating to be in such a small space. The amenities in the room more than make up for this issue ultimately, though. -It is in a built up residential area. The older photo showcasing a lake right behind the inn is not a reflection of what you will see out your window today. Again, this is not a huge issue, but it is somewhat misleading as I expected a lake and a lightly populated residential area. -The price does seem a little bit high, but ultimately I (and many others) are willing to pay it for the quality. I do intend to go down there again some time, and will likely go during the off season to take advantage of the cheaper prices. All in all, there is little to complain about. I loved the time my girlfriend and I were down at the Tower Cottage.This was a great place to stay!

Another perfect weekend at Tower Cottage

5 on June 22, 2012

We brought visitors from Australia to the best B and B in New Jersey. Another superb few nights with Maureen and Tony at The Tower.

Perfect place for our first nights together as a married couple

4.8 on May 12, 2012

It has been overa year now since our wedding, just returned from a awesome trip to Costa Rica for 10 days and our stay at the Tower Cottage remains one of our fondest memories. Everything about it is perfect in every way.

Place to stay

5 on October 01, 2011

We have visited several B&B's in NJ, we thought we found the best until we stayed at The Tower Cottage. The moment we walked in you could tell that the owners took pride in this elegant home. No detail was overlooked, the towels, the door knobs, the bedding. Maureen & Tony took their time in making this B&B exquisite. You won't go hungry here, from the bountiful and extraordinary breakfast menu which was comparable to any five star restaurant, and then when you returned from the beach the assortment of fruit and cheeses were just the right touch. The innkeepers Maureen and Anthony were so welcoming they made you feel right at home. Maureen and Eloine catered to all your needs. Our time their was more then just relaxing it was an experience we will never forget.


5 on September 29, 2011

If I could've thought a word more superlative than "outstanding" I would have used it. The place is beautiful, the hosts are wonderful charming people and the food and presentation is, well, outstanding. If you're looking for a place to relax in a romantic environment and be pampered, this is it. Especially, if you're a piano player! Tom and Barb from Belle Mead

Beautiful Inn

5 on July 31, 2011

From the minute you are greeted by Maureen and Tony on the front porch of their beautifully restored victorian home, you are in another world of luxury. Any one of their 5 rooms will overwhelm you with comfort. You need to leave your diet at the door as you may not be able to finish the generous breakfast prepared by Maureen. And dont forget the snacks of baked goods, cheese and fruit and the special ice tea all during the day with a nightcap of cheese cake or fresh made brownies. Pamper yourself and you will make new memories with a stay at the Tower Cottage!

A Special Time

5 on July 24, 2011

No stone was left unturned. Our weekend stay was so perfect--it left us feeling more like we had just enjoyed an entire week off instead of just 3 days. Breakfast was fantastic and the accomodations--simply heavenly. Can't wait to go back! Debby and Art Hall

An Amazing Getaway

5 on June 28, 2011

We had an amazing stay at the Tower Cottage and in the Tower Suite. We could not have been more impressed with the extremely clean and well maintained suite. It looked like we were the first people who ever stayed there. The suite had a great two person bathtub with jets and a great shower. We were fed during our entire stay with continuous home made assortments of scones, cookies, cheese and fruit platters, and more and more. The gourmet breakfast each morning never ever ends. Call me if your still hungry after breakfast because that would be impossible. We were also provided beach badges and the availability of chairs and a cart for a short stroll to the beach and a very relaxing experience. The shore was jam packed and we experienced none of it because we did not have to worry about parking or driving. Lastly, Maureen and Tony are now our best friends and we love them!!! We have already booked two more return trips! We cant wait! Garf & Gloria

Felt like a fairytale princess

5 on June 10, 2011

Immediately felt welcomed by the inkeepers. My being comfortable was their primary objective. Warm brownies at bedtime for a weary traveler. Flavored ice tea and chocolate chip cookies throughout the day. Everything is so bright and clean - the Inn just sparkles. I stayed in the Victorian Gardens room which is a princess's dream. The gourmet bearkfast were masterpieces -just could not resist taking pictures. Easy walk to the beach, but my favorite spot, when not in my room, was the rocking chair on the porch.

Great getaway!

4.6 on October 27, 2010

We had a delightful stay at Tony and Maureen's Tower Cottage. Would recommend to anyone. May cost more than some, but well worth it for a special weekend to remember! Gib & Sharon Armstrong Lancaster, PA

Truly unbelievable. Everything was top notch!

5 on October 11, 2010

My wife and I stayed here for our wedding weekend. Have you seen their 36 reviews (now 37) and 5-star Google rating? There is always 1 person that MUST say something bad about even the greatest places. NOT HERE. The Tower Cottage is what the entire Jersey Shore should be, beautiful, luxurious, accommodating, and traditional. This Bed & Breakfast is absolutely stunning. From the baseboards to crown moulding, from floor to wall to ceiling, from the bed linens to the bathrooms, from the delicious breakfast to Tony and Maureen's smile. See the history of the Tower Cottage in their remodeling photo album. You'll spend an hour looking and 3 hours talking about it! This is the epitome of a Bed & Breakfast and we would recommend it to anyone! Thank you Tony & Maureen for a wonderful stay! Brad & Lana

This is the gold standard

4.2 on August 30, 2010

You can stop looking as Maureen and Tony are the gold standard. There are no negatives with this vacation spot. These two quality people have redone this home and they make you feel like a king and queen. The accommodations are great and the cooking that Maureen does is second to none. We will be going back. This is first class all the way. Rob and Molly


5 on August 18, 2010

We just completed our stay celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and could not have had a better setting. Our experience at The Tower Cottage epitomizes the appeal of traditional B&B's. The home was recently renovated and the design and craftsmanship were outstanding. The accommodations were cozy, well appointed and with all the modern conveniences- personal temperature controls, in-room refrigerator, jacuzzi, full-body shower jets, etc. The furniture, mouldings, color schemes and architectural details were well coordinated and crisp. The breakfasts were incredible- comparable to a 5-star restaurant. The hosts were warm, attentive and focused on making our stay as wonderful as possible. The list of "special touches" were endless but included free beach passes, towels, chairs and umbrellas, fresh tea and coffee througout the day, afternoon iced tea, Godiva chocolate treats, early evening fruit and cheese platters, concierge services (e.g. maps, restaurant recommendations and reservations) and evening desserts. The location is ideal- minutes off the Garden State Parkway and a 2 blocks from the beach and boardwalk. It was obvious the hosts, Tony and Maureen, are proud of their restorations they undertook and do everything to ensure your stay is one to remember. Our 25th Anniversary will forever be memorable- thanks in large part to our experience at The Tower Cottage. We highly recommend it and we look forward already to our next stay.

Just What the Doctor Ordered

4.8 on June 18, 2010

Came here as a Mother's Day gift, recovering from surgery - my husband thought getting out would be good for me. The Tower Cottage Inn was just what the doctor ordered. Just looking at it from the outside is impressive; once you get inside, every detail of every room is in place to create an ambiance of warmth and elegance. Maureen and Tony made us feel like family, while at the same time, totally spoiling us with their impeccable service. We were able to tour some of the inn, and it was amazing. Each room had a theme, and in each room, the detail was precise. Right down to the bathrooms, which are beautifully appointed, the accessories are tied to the theme of the room. To say our room surpassed our expectations is an understatement. In it, I felt like a pampered princess the entire time I was there. I was sad when we had to leave, and definitely plan on visiting again. I have recommended the inn to numerous friends and family members, and will continue to do so. The greatest compliment I can pay is that I plan on booking the cottage room twice ... once for myself and my husband, perhaps as an anniversary getaway ... and once for my daughter when she gets married. If you're looking for luxury and service, this is your place.


4.0 on April 26, 2010

If you want to relax and be pampered...this is the place to do it. The atmosphere is charming and the rooms are completely remodeled with upscale decorating and beautiful bathrooms. Maureen and Tony are simply charming and go out of their way to make you welcome and the food is overwhelming. Absolutely loved our stay with them.

Romantic & Peaceful

5 on February 14, 2010

Words cannot describe your stay at the Tower Cottage. You have to experience it to appreciate it. The owners, Maureen and Tony, have thought of everything to make your stay as romantic and wonderful as you can imagine. The rooms/bathrooms are spotless. You feel like no one else has ever stayed in your room. Everything is elegant and Maureen and Tony make you feel like your a king and queen. They are very nice people and make you feel so comfortable. Maureen is an awesome cook and very sweet. Tony will do whatever he can to make you feel at home and is very sweet as well. My husband and I have stayed at the Cottage on two separate occasions and plan on going back again when we need that little romantic getaway.

Never want to leave your room...

4.8 on September 07, 2009

My husband and I stayed overnight and we are certain we have found our future "getaway from it all" place. The room we stayed in, "The Wellington Manor" was amazing! The king size bed was so comfortable that we did not want to get out of bed. The bathroom, with its two person shower, was simply amazing! Our stay far exceeded our expectations and we hope to return soon. While it is a bit on the pricey side, once you get there, you will understand why. There is so much attention given to every detail and one can tell that every square inch of the place is perfectly manicured. The details in each room (we got to see some rooms while they were being cleaned or had just been cleaned) were nothing short of a ones you would expect to find in a boutique luxury hotel. The rooms are on the smaller side, but once you get into that bed or into that bathroom, you'll be thinking, "I could actually live here". The breakfast was gourmet and plentiful. The InnKeepers, Tony and Maureen are truly lovely, hardworking people. We really enjoyed meeting them! We will see you again, and again and again!!!!

Just Heaven

Tony and Maureen are really wonderful people, gracious hosts too! They have such pride in their "cottage" - and rightly so. It is just beautiful - we saw all the other rooms too when they had just been newly set up - a really nice combination of antique and modern. Antique in style, but the building was recently renovated and is well taken care of, so it's all very clean and "untouched" - you feel like you're the first person to rent the room. Modern also in the sense that ornamentation is done with supreme taste - enough to be fancy and elegant, but far from over the top (ie. lace and flowers everywhere). Breakfast each morning is delicious and again, thorough... and elegant too. And really, this ought to be called a "bed and breakfast and hors d'oevres and dessert" since Maureen prepares early evening appetizers and a nightly dish of home-baked cookies or cake... beyond what we expected. Tower Cottage is close to the beach and the train, so quite accessible. Beach passes and chairs and umbrellas and towels are provided (again, thorough! exactly what a guest could need!). We had such a wonderful time.... looking forward to the next. B&J

Like Having Your Own Shore House

5 on August 03, 2009

I stayed with Maureen and Tony in late July 2009, The Inn is beautifully appointed with elegant Victorian details and decor. The breakfast is a gourmet feast and the secret will not stay that way for long. Everything is gleaming new and pristine. They have parking, a great porch to enjoy the late afternoon cheese and crackers. The rooms are a luxury escape from the sun and sand of the shore activities. You can borrow their bikes and ride around the charming neighborhood on a lake inlet. I have rebooked for upcoming holidays- a gem near the beach and boardwalk action.

Look no further.......

beautiful, immaculate, classy, elegant B & B with a breakfast that sets this apart from any other B & B. Maureen and Tony are wonderful people - made us feel comfortable and pampered. They go way above the call of duty and you can tell their hearts are in this business from every detail u see....we had a wonderful weekend here and cant wait to go back!!!

A bit of Heaven at the Jersey Shore

5 on July 01, 2009

My husband and I can't say enough good things about The Tower Cottage. We went for a romantic getaway weekend in late May '09 and I really never wanted to leave. Maureen & Tony were just the best and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. Our room was exquisite, the bed was like floating on a cloud and the shower...let me just say that no shower has been the same since! The breakfasts Maureen made were to die for! If you want rest, relaxation at the Jersey shore look no further than the Tower Cottage. We are going back in September for our anniversary.

The Palace Life!

My husband and I had an incredible weekend at this B&B! The Tower Cottage B&B is a beautiful home! The detail and thought put into the interior design is amazing! Maurine and Tony went above and beyond in terms of ensuring our comfort while we were their guests! They are a wonderful couple!

We were traveling to the shore to attend a local wedding. While in Point Pleasant Beach, we would usually stay in one of the local motels. My husband is always averse to staying at a Bed and Breakfast, however, based upon what I saw at their website, I was able to convince him to stay at The Tower Cottage. Well, The Tower Cottage is nothing like what my husband expected. Although it was built in 1883, it is virtually a brand new house. With the exception of a few antiques, all the furniture is new and beautiful. Maureen and Tony welcomed us as if we were family. They gave us a tour of the entire house. The place is amazing! The attention to detail given to each room was impeccable. Each room was elegant and very clean. We stayed in the Tuscan Dreams. The Pisa bed is “to die for”. The mattresses are so thick that I had to jump up to get on the bed; it was actually a fun experience. Bed steps are available, but we didn’t want one. The bedding and linens were beautiful; even the sheets were ironed. The food was plentiful and sumptuous. You can't believe Maureen's frittatas! We highly recommend The Tower Cottage as a great place to relax and get pampered. Everything about The Tower Cottage it is Five Star. We will definitely be back.

Lovely room, gracious hosts

The quality of the furnishings and amenities at The Tower Cottage is extremely high. The rooms, while not large, are beautifully appointed and Maureen and Tony are outstanding hosts who have an eye for the smallest details (you won't believe the bathrobes!) -- I guarantee you will feel spoiled and rested. The bathrooms are palatial. Sleeping in the tower room itself is like sleeping in a 5-star tree house. I warn you, though, bring your appetite, for the breakfast is delicious and more than generous and delectable treats magically appear throughout the day!

Our stay at the Tower Cottage was absolutely wonderful. Our hosts, Tony and Maureen, were gracious and hospitable. Each room was luxurious and comfortable, from the top quality linens to the marble baths. The food was outstanding, and in abundance. We were served a cheese platter on arrival, iced tea and delicious homemade treats in the afternoons, early morning coffee and tea, along with muffins or coffee cake, followed by a sumptuous gourmet breakfast. The complimentary, homemade, warm, chocolate cake topped with chocolate mousse and surrounded by rasberries, in honor of our anniversary, was a really nice personal touch. (And quite delicious!) The entire place was immaculate. Maureen and Tony's attention to detail is evident, and they helped make our anniversary celebration one we won't forget. We will return soon and recommend this B&B without reservation!

Simply Awesome

What a great place to spend our first night as husband and wife! A completely & beautifully restored Inn. Tower room was spacious, romantic, and super clean. Hospitality and food was top notch. I highly recommend the Tower Cottage and even though we live locally, we will definately be back. Ken & Theresa

Our stay at the Tower Cottage

5 on March 27, 2009

My wife and I had to come down to the area for tax purposes so I found the Tower Cottage and made a weekend out of it. To sum it up, I felt like I was visiting family. Maureen and Tony have created a 5-star B& my opinion. Every room was very nice with everything you could imagine you would need and, most importantly, want. We stayed in the Versailles room and it was perfect. They had a very keen attention to detail and really made you feel at home. Breakfast was unbelievable and the service was top notch. We also enjoyed learning about the history of the house. Very cool. We will definitely be back.

The Most Amazing Inn

5 on February 08, 2009

Truly, after staying in Bed and Breakfast's all over the country, we have found the worlds best. Pictures and words will never do justice to the hospitality, quality, food and personal touch that Maureen & Anthony have provided. The Tower Room was perfect in every way. The décor was impeccable as was the attention to the finest detail. Old world charm was surrounded by a wine chiller and flat screen TV with DVD player. The linens were the softest and most luxurious we have ever felt. The food never stopped coming. Day and night we were pampered in every way. My wife and I have been truly won over and will never stay anywhere else. We have claimed the tower room as our own. Thank you for a life changing experience. Garf & Gloria

Romanze in the New Year

5 on January 05, 2009

What a wonderful way to ring in the New Year! The Tower Cottage is truly one of the gems of the jersey Shore experience. Innkeepers Maureen & Tony extended their hospitality to us from the moment we entered the front door to the moment we left. The accomodations, the breakfasts, the amenities, the company, all made for a perfect stay. The Tower Cottage truly possesses the ROMANZE they aspire to. Looking forward to our next stay at this beautiful Inn.

Better than expected

5 on November 03, 2008

My fiancee and I stayed in the Tower Suite, and it was better than we had expected. The room was very clean and beautiful. The linens, towels, and bathrobes felt soft and luxurious. The Inn keepers went way above and beyond and were better than fantastic. The website is a accurate representation of what you can expect, and you will be impressed when you get there. We were planning our next stay with them before we even left. The stuffed apples and stuffed french toast for breakfast were so good I would have paid extra for them. Mr and Mrs Haddad were very hospitable, did an excellent job, and I am planning a return visit.

Delivers true luxury

Maureen and Tony deliver what they promise. My wife and I were the first guests in the Tower Suite, and everything about the experience is five-star. Beautiful restoration, elegant linens, luxury bath, amazing breakfast, warm and gracious hosts. Ranks in the first tier with the best of Spring Lake and other high-end experiences.

Dearest Anthony and Maureen, our most sincere congratulations on the restoration of your Father and Mother's home to its original state. It is truly magnificent and we can't wait to come and stay with you one day soon. This project was a labor of love and you both have done an amazing job. You can see the love and care with every exquisite detail. God bless you both on the culmination of this project. May this new adventure give you many many years of success, satisfaction and enjoyment. We love you deeply and forever, Aunt Mary and Cousin Joanne xoxo

Gorgeous Bed and Breakfast!
