We loved our long weekend stay at Minerva's by the Sea. The mermaid room has a comfortable king bed and a nice balcony overlooking the bay. Emma is a thoughtful host, providing stimulating conversations and her breakfasts each morning were amazing. There were several good restaurants and places to explore within walking and biking distance. A great place for winter... More

My weekend at Minerva's was a treat. Our room was tidy and comfortable, and every little detail was well considered. I enjoyed a book from the library and appreciated all of the care Emma took to make us comfortable. Emma's food is delicious! I came home inspired by her innovative recipes, and have her to thank for the vegetarian French... More

I have been to Minerva's three times, and all have been restorative and marvelous. The accommodations are extremely comfortable, clean, and quiet--the rooms are charming and peaceful. The food is always healthy, beautifully presented and I love the family dinner-table setting. Minerva's is quickly becoming one of my first choices when I need to step out of the crazy and... More

Got into this place through a comedy of errors that left us on Long Beach Island, NJ, with no place to stay for two nights. We ended up wishing we were able to stay for two weeks. Immaculate, modern rooms, excellent breakfast and indescribable hospitality. Emma and her staff are devoted to making every guest's experience memorable--in the very best... More

We stayed at Minerva's for two nights in August as part of a long road trip round the US, and wanted somewhere welcoming and peaceful to relax for a couple of days. Minerva's was perfect. From the first hello to the last goodbye, everyone we met was so welcoming, friendly and helpful. This is a real hidden gem. The breakfasts... More

We stayed in the Emperor Penguin room - just right for family of 4 with 2 kids age 8 & 11. We used the kitchen for lunch and snacks. The girls loved meeting people at breakfast. The breakfasts all were delicious and comfortable on the 3rd floor roof deck. And, Emma reminded us that we were there to make memories... More

We love this Bed and Breakfast; Emma makes you feel very welcome. The kitchen is very beautiful and you will have several healthy choices for breakfast, which you will see Emma preparing for you. You will have the choice of either eating breakfast at the comfortable kitchen table, or outside on the deck, adjoined to the kitchen with a scenic... More

Our party of 3, a married couple and our 15 month old toddler stayed for 2 nights at the end of July and were extremely pleased with Minerva's. Kudos to Emma for both her hospitality and her wonderful breakfasts. We would recommend the Neptune room with its view of the street and sunsets over the bay. We also loved Barnegat... More

I stayed at Minerva's for one evening with my three children. We stayed in the Emperor room and we fit great. It is a one bedroom apartment, complete with a full kitchen and ample bathroom. It would be wonderful for an extended stay. Emma was the perfect host and pointed us in the direction of a kid friendly beach on... More
