Great place to stay

4.6 on August 04, 2018

We had a wonderful 2 night stay. We were in room 12. The room was well appointed and very clean. We enjoyed the porch with the 2 rocking chairs. Everyone was very nice. We would stay there again. Short UBER ride to Atlantic City if you don't want to hassle with parking or perhaps enjoy a cocktail.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us at the Jonathan Pitney house! The porch on room 12 is one of our favorite places to sit and relax, we are so glad you enjoyed it!

The Jonathan Pitney House is definitely a place I will come back to. I wish we didn’t have to check out so early,5:30 am.I would have loved to have had the breakfast,I heard from other guest how delicious it is.


A+ experience from start to finish

What a CHARMING place! The entire property is as neat as a pin and just beautiful. The inn itself is spotlessly clean (this made me very happy). Our room was very comfortable and well appointed. We had a special breakfast request and it was fulfilled graciously. Tracey is an Innkeepers Innkeeper. A+ experience!


Amazing

Wonderful getaway

5 on April 20, 2018

The house and room were beautifully restored and transported you to a simpler time. Perfectly cozy and ideal for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Our hostess was the sweetest, kindest lady you could hope to meet and her breakfast was to die for. The banana bread, in particular, was a delight. Nearby Historic Smithville offered a nice getaway, but not for seekers of fine dining. Jonathan Pitney House is highly recommended and this will not be my last visit.


Absolutely the best

From the online registration to my final checkout, this was a top notch experience. Staff could not be more accommodating, including printing recipe for delicious breakfast pastry. This experience was all that we hoped for and more. My wife who I lovingly call Elexahente ( I think that's correct for the demanding one ) gave me full compliments for picking this BANDB.


What a gem!

I have stayed at many B&B's throughout the years and the Jonathan Pitney House was head and shoulders above the rest. The room was spacious, clean, and incredibly comfortable. The snacks and breakfast were delicious and the staff was friendly, accommodating and genuinely interested in those who stayed at the inn. It was an incredible experience all the way around. Enjoy!!


Thoroughly enjoyed our stay
