This was my first stay at the Henry Richard Inn. This Inn is a very homey place … had a room on the third floor which was very quiet, full of light, clean and comfortable. I enjoyed myself and will definitely be returning.

This B and B is on the ocean block and right next to town eateries. This is not a fancy place, and I would call it moderately clean, but worked for me. No AC, no TV in rooms, but basic boarding room, tiny sinks in the room and a shared bathroom. Bedding and towels were fresh, but a bit dusty... More

Spent a delightful weekend at the Inn as part of Ocean Groves Girls Weekend away. The Inn was comfortable with two fireplaces going along with Inn owner Jane's usual warm and friendly welcome. We stayed in the small apartment (private bath and little kitchen) on the first floor (my favorite room) Although when I go alone, I have a few... More

We stayed on the second floor in the "large apt". which had a double bed, double futon, full kitchen and bathroom. There were four of us. I have... More

Girlfriends Getaway Weekend was a great success...The cold weather made it nice and cozy to enjoy games, and enjoy the fireplaces.... Breakfast is always a shared event with making new friends and making memories... More

This is a bed and breakfast with heart. Jane, one of the proprietors, is gracious, fun, and personable. We stayed in the large apartment, which was quite comfortable and the main area downstairs is full of over-stuffed couches, comfy chairs and a warm fireplace. Breakfast was excellent and we felt at home immediately. This was my first visit, but Jane... More

Very family oriented. This place feels very homey. The owners are very nice people. The location is so great, so close to the shops and the beach! The town is very cute but does not allow alcohol. This is a great place for kids though the rooms are kind of small.Would return!

We come back to the Henry Richard every year! I grew up in the area and staying here is like coming home again. The rooms are comfortable and clean, breakfasts ample and delicious, and the location can't be beat (one block from the ocean, two blocks to town)! The innkeeper, Jane, is warm and welcoming, always helping make connections by... More

This place is like visiting my grandmother's farmhouse, but on the beach. The owners are friendly and accommodating. My bed was comfortable, with soft clean sheets and bedding. I'm very sensitive to smell and mold, and this place always smelled fresh, which helped me feel at home. It was a real treat to be so close to the beach, its... More
