4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very nice boutique hotel/inn with a beachy, surf vibe. Great location and lovely innkeepers. Although the place is older, room was clean and updated with nice amenities. Little perks that mean a lot: outdoor shower, plenty of common seating area, and keurig machine! Short walk to the beach, restaurants, and center of Beach Haven. Perfect!

My family and I loved staying at Windward at the Beach. The inn is a beautiful historic Victorian lovingly restored by Chris and Tammy in a cool, modern, beachy way. Everything was clean, bright and comfortable. We took full advantage of everything the Inn has to offer- grills, patio, lobby, not to mention the beautiful beach right across the street... More

My husband and I wanted to get out of Brooklyn for a nice weekend at the beach before having our first baby in July. Windward at the Beach was fantastic! It's so well designed and comfortable, convenient, and full of charm-- one of my favorite parts of this Victorian are the outdoor showers nestled away in the back. Walking distance... More

We had 15 people spread over 4 rooms for a three-day family reunion. The owners, Tammy and Chris, make everyone feel more like extended Family than guest, and they were always willing to do whatever they could to make our stay more enjoyable. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and casual, and we really felt like we more more at a... More

A few friends of mine had a mini high school reunion here. The owners (Tammie and Chris) were great hosts – friendly, helpful and willing to go out of their way to make us comfortable. We hit the beach, road bikes, shopped for beach dresses during the day (the inn is within walking distance of everything). Evenings were spent barbequing,... More

My family and I stayed here twice during the summer. During our first stay it poured for two days. My sons are aged three and five and were bored being inside. Having the enclosed porch with lots of games and books helped the pass the time. Tammie and her husband were wonderful hosts. They always had suggestions on what things... More

My husband and I along with our 2 children 11 and 8 spent a wonderful few days at the Windward at the end of August.

I recently stayed here with my family and found the place to be overly musty smelling. Our room ($385 +tax) was on the second floor, there is no AC throughout the Inn other than room units, so its quite hot and humid in hallways. My niece opened the sliding door to the closet which was damp and smelly. I would... More

We appreciate your recent review. As relatively new owners of the Windward at the Beach, we are working our way through the house, updating and remodeling. We've done most rooms and room 9 is on the update list for the spring of 2014, with summer visits to a fresh, clean, and updated two room suite. We are surprised that you... More
