This was our 3rd stay at the Williams Cottage Inn and, as always, our stay was perfectly relaxing. Merl and Bette couldn't be more accommodating and the house is beautiful. We stayed in the Asian room which boasts a fabulous steam shower. The delicious breakfasts will keep you satisfied all day on the beach, but you must spend time on... More

We only stayed one night wish it was longer! From the amazing location steps from the beach to the friendly and helpful hosts, having beach chairs towels and umbrella's all available to use to the wonderful breakfast. Bicycles available to use was a nice touch. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom with the rain shower was so nice.... More

We've been to Long Beach Island many times over the past twenty years, and can now truly say that we didn't know what we were missing. The Inn was beautiful, the amenities plentiful and the location could not be beat. The only thing better was the hospitality we experienced. Betty and Merle made us feel completely at home in their... More

Our favorite place just keeps getting better. Beautifully restored Victorian across the street from a great stretch of beach. Rooms couldn't be comfier and hospitality couldn't be warmer. Merle and Betty provide all the comforts for a great stay at the beach. And nothing beats their breakfasts. You really have to experience it to believe it.

Our children are grown. My wife and I try to spend some romantic time by ourselves and don't want to be wherever "the action" is. We also don't shop by price. We like a high end but understated atmosphere and don't mind paying for it. If that sounds like you, this is your kind of place. Away from the popularly... More

Back in 2011 my wife and I were married through the Williams Cottage Inn. Bette & Merle are remarkable Innkeepers and made the whole experience very enjoyable. We returned in August to celebrate our anniversary. The breakfast is to die for and the amenities are endless. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to have a nice,... More

We just spent two days and nights at Williams Cottage Inn. It was a very special experience. The food was great, the location was perfect and the owners delightful. I was most impressed by their attention to detail. They have thought of everything: towels, chairs, bikes, beach bags, umbrellas, magazines, games, a fridge for leftovers, cookies, candies, and coffee all... More

We returned to LBI after many years of being away and were delighted to find Williams Cottage Inn. Bette and Merle were the most delightful hosts, friendly, warm and resourceful. The Blue Room, the room in which we stayed, was beautifully appointed, spacious, lovingly restored and very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was so delicious, we decided to eat there instead...
