First time here and many more visits too come! Quaint and cozy with each room furnished differently. My wife and I stayed in the Madison room with king size bed and private bath. The Hosts/Owners were just great, we were made to feel at home the moment we walked in the door. Excellent breakfast along with bagels, fresh fruit and... More

We were here for a friends wedding, so 4 couples stayed here. The hosts went above and beyond making us comfortable. The rooms were decorated lovely, beds comfortable and clean. Best part is the breakfast which is not just bagels but eggs, french toast ect. Location could not have been better. One and half block to Church, short walk to... More

Really nice B & B. We were on the island for a wedding and choose to stay at the Island Guest House. Mark and Joanne could not have been better hosts. The rooms are not large, but clean and functional. They but together a breakfast that is top notch. We will stay again!

We have stayed here seven times now and will definitely keep coming back! Mark and Joanne, who run the bed and breakfast, are very friendly and truly want their guests to have a great time. They are also extremely attentive to requests and even remember preferences when you return months later. They make you feel like family, and we really... More

My wife and I recently stayed for Labor Day weekend with a last-minute reservation. We were happy to find accommodations in Beach Haven,NJ. We have enjoyed bed and breakfast on many occasions. We had a comfortable king size bed and private bath for $300 a night. The bed took up most of the room but was not unexpected as it... More

We spent a few days at Beach Haven and Joanne and Mark were wonderful hosts! Location is perfect as very close to the beach with walking everywhere. Breakfast is delicious. The courtyard very welcoming. We will be back!

From the moment you drive up to the parking area in front of a welcoming courtyard, armed with umbrellas, showers and tiki bar, your in the safe harbor provided by Mark & Joanne. Awesome decor and furnishings throughout this wonderfully built structure. The special care that Maggie & I have received over the many years has been nothing short of... More

Joanne and Mark were wonderful hosts! We were greeted with a sweet welcome bag and a handmade necklace. There is a lovely patio where you can sit and relax. Breakfast was good and they have coffee/water/lemonade available all day as well as mid day snacks. The location cannot be beat either! Nice place to unwind.

Very sweet couple. Comfortable atmosphere. Close to everything. No car needed once you're there. Breakfast was very good. I only wish you can get coffee before 7. The kitchen is locked and I am an early riser. I think its a lovely historical place. We stayed in the sunflower room. If you are looking for more modern accomodations...this is not... More

Mark and Joanne are wonderful hosts. They made us feel welcome in their inn from the very first moment. Breakfast was wonderful every morning and you are encouraged to make yourself at home. In addition there are accommodations in place so you can enjoy the beach on the last day of your visit.
