Lovely Inn

5 on January 16, 2018

Despite it being New Year's Eve prices were not increased, which is a good start. We have always loved this Inn and it was even lovelier decked out for the holidays. Each room is unique and most have at least a bit of a view of the ocean, less than a block away. There is actually a menu for breakfast and food is cooked to order, rare in a Bed and Breakfast, plus you can order as much or as little as you wish.

Wonderful Escape by the Sea

Wonderful classic bed and breakfast with unique comfortable rooms. One block away from beach, yet you can have beach and lake views from certain rooms. The house is lovely and the hosts considerate and welcoming. Great breakfast with extensive choices and friendly service.

A Home away from Home

This is the most pleasant Bed & Breakfast Inn that my wife and I ever stayed at. We were greeted by the Inn Keeper that wears a permanent smile when she spoke and when she listened to us, the rooms emulate a certain charm that just warms the heart and soul, the breakfast was outstanding with the kitchen staff ready to go out of their way to make one comfortable and there is even a breakfast menu to choose from. We arrived from Texas to spend a week visiting family and we could not have chose a better Inn to spend that week, we will be back and in Texas we have a saying when someplace is top notch we call it "down-home" and that it is.

Great breakfast

We have been going to Cashelmara for years. It is our go to place for special occasions and quiet getaways. It has outstanding management with Mary in charge and we find it our home away from home.

A time of celebration.

Mary is the BEST hostess. She is like part of the family as we celebrate our parents anniversary here every year. Thank you Mary for going the extra mile for us.

A getaway location with a home feel!

Mary and her staff make it feel like family have invited you to stay at their home! We feel very warmly welcome and comfortable at the Inn. We recommend that anyone considering a stay at the shore stay at the Cashelmara Inn!

A Gem on the Jersey Shore

From the moment you enter this jewel by the sea, you feel at home. From the small warm touches and period details, Cashelmara is a welcoming respite. Mary, the inn keeper, is the portrait of warmth and hospitality and made us feel at home. The front porch offers a gracious place to enjoy the sea breezes and the ocean is just across the street. The breakfast is fabulous and offers amazing choices. We'll be back for sure. It was wonderful!

A Memorable Experience

5 on September 17, 2017

My husband and I spent three nights at the Cashelmara Inn. The decor and comfort of the Inn contributed to a feeling of a special get-a-way. The food offered for breakfast, from fruit to pancakes was fresh and delicious. The muffins were the best we have ever eaten anywhere. The staff was was welcoming and went beyond what we expected to make sure we had what we needed. My husband has some physical limitations which they understood and were so kind and patient about. We loved the choice of eating breakfast inside or out each morning. All of the rooms in the Inn were pristine lovely, cleaned regularly (including the ornate chandeliers.) The Innkeeper was most helpful in selecting dinner sites for us. The location is perfect for quiet and proximity to the beach. We heartily endorse the Cashelmara Inn as a choice you will be happy you made.

Upscale jersey shore

Panoramic beach and lake views from our lovely 2nd floor room. Especially enjoyed the scrumptious breakfast on the wrap around porch.
