A group of friends rented the carriage house behind the B&B, it was a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Mikell called me the week before to just check in, it was going to be a busy weekend in Asbury because of a music festival and she warned me that streets may get closed but she would get me to her house if...

2nd time visiting The Big House. as before, Mikell was a gracious hostess. Her style is mid-century chill. Sleep well, enjoy a great breakfast and hit the beach. The Korean taco place on the BoardWalk was new and tasty. Shop Cookman Avenue. The Big House is an easy walk from the NJ Transit train and bus station (Mikell did offer... More

We booked Mikell's for a bridal shower for my daughter because we knew we didn't want doilies, but wanted something fresh and classic that would appeal to a multi-generational guest list. Mikell gave us full use of the first floor and provided a beautiful lunch. We used the bride's grandmother's mid-century punch bowl and it fit in perfectly with Mikell's... More

I am a bit late in posting this review, but in fairness, we have been following the "Boss" around the East and our stay at Mikell's was our kick-off point. My wife and I came down for a weekend in March (St. Patrick's Day weekend), and had a FANTASTIC time here. Mikell is a wonderful, colorful hostess who we spent... More

My girlfriend and I were in town for the ATP Festival. Mikell's house was filled with wonderful, like minded people. Mikell was an incredible host and an even better chef. The breakfasts were a delight. I seriously didn't think about food until dinner. Mikell's locatation is perfect. You can see the ocean & the boardwalk from her porch. Asbury Lanes... More

My wife and I went down to stay in Asbury Park for the All Tomorrows Parties Music Festival. Mikell's Big House was a great location for all of the festivities. It is just a few blocks from the boardwalk along most of the popular places in town. Mikelle makes a fantastic breakfast every morning, filling you up so lunch isn't... More

My wife and I stayed over the 4th of July weekend just last weekend, 2011. Went down for the SS Johnny and Jukes concert at the SP and found this ecletic B&B on line. Talked to Mikell a couple of times after checking the rates and location....and of course the history and pictures. We were sold and met soo soo... More

We've just returned from Mikell's for our second time and it was just as good as the first. We came during the week this time on a Thursday. This was great because the boardwalk and beach was not slammed crazy yet just as fun as the weekend! Mikell was still the same wonderful gracious host that we loved. We were... More

Was supposed to stay @ Mikell's Big House for 2 nights, May 6th and 7th. Left Cape May that morning, and as previously arranged called Mikell's to provide arrival time. Got the answering machine (you will see a pattern here!) and left a message that we would be in between 2 and 3 PM. Got to Asbury at 2, had... More

These people never actually stayed at the B&B. When they made their reservation, they told me they were "the only people left in America without a cell phone". As anyone who's been here knows, I always get a cell phone so I can touch base with all guests to find out when they plan to arrive. They said they would... More

I stayed the night before the New Jersey Marathon and Mikell was extremely friendly and helpful - she set-up the coffee for us before leaving for the race, gave us directions and did breakfast late in the morning after the race. I couldn't recommend a better B&B on the Jersey Coast!
