Just spent a long weekend at the inn. The owners were so kind and helpful. The bike fleet came in handy as did the recommendations for nearby restaurants. Weekend breakfast was yummy. Puppy is adorable. Great B&B in clean and family friendly Ocean City, NJ!

Our plans to New Jersey involved a trip to the Borgata Atlantic City to see a concert. Instead of staying in AC, we opted to stay at a B and B in Ocean City. How lucky we were to have chosen The Northwood Inn. There was so much serenity to be found there, whether it be on the rooftop deck,... More

This was the second year I stayed at the Northwood... The room was immaculate, breakfasts outstanding and overall a place that feels more like home. We love the short walk to everything... Bikes, beach tags and the option of a hot shower on check out day if you want to spend the day in OC . There is no other... More

Couldn't have had a better stay. John and Marj are genuinely nice people and run a superb Inn. Doesn't get any better. Very quiet and peaceful place to stay. Breakfast was excellent and the location is such a good part of the island!

This historic Victorian inn is a must for your list of places to stay. The inn keepers - John and Marj - are attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable, as well as active in the community. They generously upgraded our room to the best suite as we were there during a quiet week - prior to the big jersey shore opening of... More

John and Marj are wonderful hosts! The comfortable room and peaceful ambiance gave us the perfect relaxing getaway:) The food was incredibly delectable! It feels like you are in your own beach home as you have everything you need at your fingertips. My husband and I loved watching a movie by the fireplace, rocking in the chairs on the porch... More

We were taken extra good care of... with wonderful breakfasts and other extra, since we were the only guests. Very nice people who run a very professional operation and foster a warm environment. They were helpful in orienting us to some of our interests (food and nature) in the area.
