My husband and I was looking for a new bed & breakfast getaway after our favorite place in PA was a big disappointment after new management took over (perhaps you read the review - Big Disappointment). Having been born, grew up and still live in New Jersey we decided to look by the Jersey shore. I searched the website for... More

My wife and I decided to take a mid summer break and get away for a little romance and relaxation. Having never bean to LBI, we decided to go somewhere that had great reviews on Trip advisor. Those reviews did not lie! From the moment I first spoke to the proprieter, Nancy, I knew my trip was going to be... More

Thanks so much to Nancy Gallimore and her staff at The Sand Castile at Barnegat Light. We had no idea what to expect. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality of the staff and the magnificent decor of the rooms and the Inn itself. The fact that this gem was in a part of the Isle which is fairly quiet, made... More

Nancy Gallimore, Innkeeper, was fabulous ... so welcoming, hospitable, cordial and helpful to us. We went to the Sand Castle Inn in Barnegat Light, NJ for the purpose of decompressing, and, that is what Nancy provided for us. The rooms were meticulously clean, and the breakfast each morning was gourmet. Nancy's staff also provided the space for us to relax.... More

We stayed at this luxurious B&B pre-season, and can't wait to return! Every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations! And the breakfasts could be as healthy or decadent as you wish! The owner is so accommodating, and friendly. And the coffee, well, I thought I was in France! The rooms are comfy and well appointed. I can't recommend Sand... More

Several times a year my wife and I stay at different spots on the shore somewhere in New England. Hands down Sandcastle was the best overall experience we have had in a decade of doing this. They call it a bed-and-breakfast, but a more fitting description would be that of the mini resort hotel. It's small, only eight rooms. The... More

Words cannot say how wonderful this B & B is. You are treated like royality. The owner could not possibly do anything more to make your star anymore enjoyable. There is nothing more you could ask for. Rooms are perfect, clean. This place makes you feel at home. You must stay here when you visit LBI.

I was looking for a change from the usual motel stay and discovered The Sand Castle. It was my first experience staying at a B and B and I loved everything about it. Every possible amenity is provided and many extra touches make this a very special place. The staff is super friendly and very pleasant to deal with. I... More

My wife and I spent the weekend here and we loved the charming room, the superb breakfasts and the warm- but not cloying- welcome. Our hostess even lent us beach chairs for the day on Sunday after we had checked out. Great spot.
