We arrived in February (after being preempted by Hurricane Sandra in November). What a delightful place! The room was magnificent - clean with a huge bathroom and a sleep number bed! A TV & DVD player were in the room with a nice selection of movies (and books) in the downstairs parlor. In addition to a coffee station in the... More

We have stayed at the Serendipity for years. Karen has made the place so warm and welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the location is fantastic and the breakfasts are out of this world. She accommodates both meat eaters and vegans! We look forward to staying with her again this summer!!

My husband and I have stayed here numerous times because it is such a treat! Karen is very hospitable and has excellent dining and event recommendations. Her breakfasts are delicious and you truly get your money's worth. We just got home from our last stay and I am still salivating over the memory of her homemade gingerbread! Serendipity is in...

I love to have new people book a stay. It gives me an opportunity to show them the hospitality that Serendipity and Ocean City are known for! I especially enjoy my "repeat" guests - people who started here as new guests and have evolved over stays to become friends. It is nice to know that people enjoy staying here and... More

This B&B really is our serendipity. We were sent to this small B&B when our original booking was cancelled due to a neighborhood fire and we had no place to stay for the weekend (thank you original B&B for arranging!). The host of Serendipity is so kind, she charged us the price of our original B&B, which was lower than... More

Main floor has nice sitting area with a variety of books, DVD's, and board games. All guests have use of fridge & freezer in public area. Owner is extremely accommodating on preparing breakfasts (vegan,... More

We just spent the weekend - 4/27/12 through 4/29/12 here. Warm and friendly, cozy room and living room area. Great snacks and drinks available all day long. Sample breakfast - fresh fruit cup, apple muffin, breakfast frittatta, sausage, french toast. The manager can accommodate dietary restrictions. Very relaxing experience.

Old charm, comfy rooms, porch with rocking chairs, just like Grand Ma's house! Quiet retreat in a busy shore town. Karen's gourmet breakfast is a welcome addition. My home away from home! No glitz & glamour here. That would be Atlantic City!

My wife and I picked up a two night stay here on a deal advertised on LivingSocial. We weren't sure what to expect, but any concerns were put to rest and all our expectations and hopes surpassed upon our arrival. The rooms are very clean, wonderfully well organized and just plain comfy, but what shines about Serendipity is the array... More

My wife and I (with mother in-law) wanted a nice quiet B&B, and February in Ocean City is about as quiet as it gets! No one around, nothing to do except walk on the beach and go to A.C. Serendipity was just right - informal, very good and filling breakfast, impeccable clean, very nice proprietor. The room descriptions on their... More

This was a wonderful place for a fall/early winter getaway. The area is very quiet at that time of year (mid-Dec). The owner of the bed-and-breakfast is very friendly and accommodating. Our room was small, but comfortable. The bed kind of takes up the whole room, but it was clean, and the bathroom was very spacious, with plenty of room... More
