There were many of there (and some staying at a nearby b&b) and we were all welcomed and felt so comfortable enjoying their porch or living room as our family gathered for e special famiky member’s memorial service. Great room ( we had a great view), yummy breakfast and snacks in the evening, and the owners were so amazing. This is a lovely well worth the price getaway location. Would highly recommend!
Thank you for your review. We are happy that you felt so welcome on our "home" and are planning on even better things to come from the Lillagaard. Hope to see you here again.

The new owners, Suzanne and Kevin are excellent hosts. It is as if they were born to own a BnB. Their hospitality made a difficult memorial weekend so pleasant and enjoyable for my family and me. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast was delightful. The balanconies were just fabulous. They are large and welcoming with fantastic views and breezes. They encourage use and gatherings. The balconies were the major highlight of the family weekend. Many guest joined together in the evenings to unwind with a glass of wine or bottle of beer. Ocean Grove is a dry town but alcohol is legal if purchased elsewhere. All the restaurants are BYOB and so are all the BNBs. You will not regret staying at Lillgaard. We are already planning our next visit. Kath and Laura
Thank you for your wonderful review. We enjoyed you being our guests and will continue to make the Lillaggard and it's porches a great place to be. See you soon!

Found the Lilligaard has a room available the night before our stay and decided to give it a try and so glad we did! New owners are lovely people and terrific hosts. Rooms were very nice and clean. Bed was super comfortable. The breakfast was homemade and very tasty. Chatted with many guests and all were as pleased as we were with this B&B. Highly recommend and will definitely be back.
Thank you for your review. Hope you will be back soon.

Wonderful spring stay at Lillagaard BnB. New owners Suzanne and Kevin along with daughter Imogene were gracious hosts that took care of every need. Delicious breakfast in a giant old quirky Victorian with many, many rooms, I opted to stay in the very top tower with a view of the ocean from my comfy bed. The vibe is special, can't wait to return in the summer.

I enjoyed my stay very much. The staff was helpful, efficient, and accommodating to one or two special requests. Hot items were available for breakfast. (Just one small adjustment --stronger coffee might be nice!) The views are lovely, and the covered porches guarantee a dry and comfortable place to read on a rainy day.The hotel has a European ambiance that I especially enjoy.

Christine & Mia made the "B&B Experience far more than expected! We would return to Ocean Grove and said B&B again due to the service and peace the service provided at the Sea!! Sincerely, Andrew & Irene Marino

My wife and I were so delighted to encounter this little getaway in Ocean Grove. This old charming Victorian sits steps away from the ocean and its staff were so attentive.

It was 100 degrees the day we arrived. And so was our room. The A/C was not on. It took 6 hours for the A/C to cool the room. Once cool, everything was fine. They do not keep A/C on when you are not in room, and ask you to turn off A/C when you leave the room. We were on the 3rd floor. Once the room was cool, all was well.
Beautiful queen size room, sitting area, fireplace, private bath, A/C, hand painted furniture and closets, full breakfast included, ocean view, free wifi in room, toiletries, ceiling fan.
