Serendipity is a great choice. The location cannot be beat and the room was so cozy. I loved the little extras like a robe and slippers, lip balm, current magazines in the room, sodas, snacks, and baked goods. Karen has thought of everything! Breakfast was great and plentiful. I felt very much at home at this B&B!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at Serendipity! I try to anticipate what my guests will need and what items they might enjoy having - like lip balm. Making my guests feel comfortable and at home is my goal and I'm happy to have achieved that goal with you! See you next time! More

For location, wonderful breakfast, and extra treats like fresh baked cookies & brownies every night, there's no place like Serendipity Inn. The frige is always full of soft drinks, and there is always coffee & water for tea or hot chocolate. One block from the beach & boardwalk and no shortage of restaurants within walking distance. Comfy chairs on the... More

Be warned, Karen seems like things only go one way, her way! You should consider The Scarborough Inn 720 Ocean Avenue, Ocean City, NJ 08226. A little background on me wanting to stay at this B&B. I have done the MS 150 for many years. For those of you that don't know the MS 150 raises millions of dollars for... More

Tom. I am sorry you felt my processes too strict. When you called the afternoon of your arrival to tell me your companion's plane would not be arriving until 11:30 pm I was taken aback. Since the airport is about 1 1/2 hours from Serendipity I knew your arrival would probably not be until 1:30 am. Expedia clearly lists checkin... More

We booked a last-minute trip to Ocean City for just one night when we were visiting family in Philadelphia. Karen was so easy to book with and it was not an issue at all being only a few days before our arrival. The location was ideal- less than a block away from the boardwalk on 9th Street- right by Shrivers.... More

My husband and I spend a weekend here again in 2013, and it was excellent, as always. We stayed in the "Graciously Green" room which has a large bathroom - it's our favorite. The breakfast was wonderful as always!

My wife and I were there twice. 5 star all around. Karen always went the extra mile to make us feel at home. Her breakfasts? She should audition for " The Next Iron Chef". Room? Above and beyond the call to duty! Great hospitality!!
