Spent 4 nights at Cottage on the River in Island Heights. We were traveling to Toms River to visit family and decided to try some non-standard lodging as there aren't too many great choices in TR. (ie Holiday Inn or HoJo) We arrived pretty late at night but the owner made arrangements to get us in to our room(Riverview Suite)... More

We had a very good time at this wonderful little B&B. I have to say my expectations were exceeded in every area. For instance, innkeepers Sally and Phil were very accomodating. The views from the back deck were wonderful. The rooms were decorated with cottage-style accents and victorian furniture. We had a lovely time and have already rescheduled to visit... More
