Lovely Cashelmarra

3.0 on September 26, 2016

Cashelmarra is a lovely Victorian Inn situated on an ideal location in picturesque Avon, NJ, It overlooks a pond and is 1/2 block from the Atlantic Ocean/beach. Although the rooms are very small, some have ocean or pond views. The traditional breakfasts are quite large, with afternoon snacks on a "goody table". In summer one may eat outside on half the rocking chair porch or indoors in the breakfast room. The staff and service are quite good. A great bonus is a miniature movie theater on the main level of the house. The Innkeeper and staff are very knowledgeable and pleasantly share local information, including a vast array of menus for restaurants in the area. They also have a great "beach set up" service. For a modest fee they will transport, set up and take down a sturdy beach umbrella and chairs for your private use. I recommend Cashelmarra for a lovely, restful shore time near good food. (Although not for children given the many precious decorations throughout the Inn. And a boardwalk that is simply for walking and not a "carnival of entertainments.")

Best bed and breakfast on the NJ shore

From the views to the serenity to the staff and finally to the accommodations and food, Cashelmara has been my personal favorite for almost 30 years, even when I lived next door I found a reason to stop by and wander this beautiful Victorian mansion!!

We just love Mary and the staff at Cashelmara. When we lived up North we would go every summer. We moved away and hadn't been back in 15 yrs. We now live in Florida and have started coming back up again and it hasn't changed. We love it!!!

Great experience. Highly recommended..
