My extended family periodically gathers in Beach Haven for reunions; we have been coming here since the early 1970's. For our most recent trip, rather than share a rental, my spouse and I decided to book our stay at a bed and breakfast. We selected Williams Cottage Inn primarily upon the strength of some of the reviews at Tripadvisor. We... More

Lots of reviews by folks with only 1 or 2 reviews in their history and funny that no one mentions how much they spent for a stay???? Why post a review with inside tips for others and not mention price? Seems fishy especially that most rooms seem to start at $350 per night according to website.

We had wandered passed Williams Cottage Inn during evening walks when on LBI vacations. We decided to give it a try for a couple of days after the 4th. It is a splendid B&B. Each room with private bath is unique and well appointed. The Dome Room offers great views and a delightful soaking tub. The common spaces are comfortable,... More

The amazing decor, Merle and Betty, and the location, make this a wonderful experience, not just a place to stay. You will not find a nicer Bed and Breakfast anywhere. Recommending the Williams Inn is a no brainer, please understand that this us coming from someone who doesn't like Bed and Breakfasts.

My boyfriend and I and another couple recently stayed overnight at the inn. It was fabulous!! Being the off off season we had the whole inn to ourselves. The inn keepers, Betty and Merle told us to check out all the rooms and chose the ones we wanted. This was great since we had a chance to view each room... More

Who loves beaches in Winter? My wife and I are two of the slightly off people that enjoy the sea and the sand in the off season. Our beach of choice is Long Beach Island, a seventeen mile jewel off the Jersey shore. We've been coming down to LBI for many years. During the summer when driving up South Atlantic... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this bed&breakfast! We have stayed at any number of b&b's over the years, but this was perhaps the best! Of course the property is beautiful, the front porch is amazing! But what really made this stay incredible were innkeepers Bette and Merle. They were the warmest, most genuine people you could ever wish... More

Days of non stop work and a trip from NYC through a terrible storm were quickly put behind us by Bette's warm greeting and the charm of Williams Cottage. If you are looking for elegant and comfortable Victorian surroundings and a serene, pampered environment, Williams Cottage is the place and Bette and Merle are the perfect hosts. The Blue Room...

We don't really have words to express the amazing 3 days we had at the Inn. Not only was this a place we had dreamed of staying at for a very long time, but it far exceeded our expectations. The hospitality Merle and Bette towards us was beyond kind. They were truly a blessing to us. Breakfast was served in... More

We had an amazing time at the Williams Cottage. Merle and Betty were so gracious and helpful. The room was beautiful and so was the house. A beautiful restoration and soo charming. We had everything we could need for a day at the beach, we had bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas... The food was delicious! It felt like we were at... More
