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

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

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.
