We really liked this B&B. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the breakfast was excellent and plentiful, and the location is great, near the beach and town. Ocean Grove is quite an interesting place, with amazingly preserved beach homes with unique architecture. Possibly the best part of Carriage House was chatting with the owner Phil, who felt like a good... More

We spent two nights at this charming B&B. The inn is very clean and well is nicely decorated. The owners were very accommodating to our dietary needs. We took the train out and avoided the traffic and parking. The beach and restaurants are a short walk away. It was a perfect two-day getaway.

Absolutely spotless. The best host and hostess. Very convenient to the beach, shopping and the boardwalk. We loved it. We loved everything about it. It was a great weekend. We are VERY sorry that this year they are totally booked so we have to go stay somewhere else....

The Carriage House is a gem. The owners make you feel right at home. The service is incredible! I enjoyed the stay very much - it was the perfect weekend getaway. Masha cooks the best Russian food for breakfast!! I will definitely be returning next summer.

We spent a wonderful night at this lovely place in Ocean Grove, NJ. It is a block from the Ocean--from our window in Room 4 we got a good view of the beach and the waves. Kathi and Phil Franco are wonderful hosts--Phil is a delightful person who gives helpful suggestions and Kathi provides terrific breakfasts. This was a large... More

Just returned from an overnight stay at this bed and breakfast. It was exactly what we needed to renew and refresh ourselves. It was clean, comfortable, and felt like home. The breakfast was wonderful and we will definitely consider returning.

Ocean Grove, NJ, is a Landmark community where buildings must conform to maintaining Victorian style and appearance. In this setting, the Carriage House is an Award-winning inn that feels and looks like a dollhouse from the era. However, the B&B offers comfort, cleanliness, convenience and meals that brush aside any of the age's shortcomings. This is a dazzling place to... More

My wife and I stayed here recently, and we thought it was really great. The owners, Kathi and Phil, are both very nice and helpful. Breakfast was delicious--a different quiche each day, and some other tasty options, including some fantastic croissants. We stayed in room 8, which has a queen sized bed, a small sitting area, fireplace, and private bathroom.... More

really nice place, rooms are a little small, but most of these b n b's have small rooms, very quaint and elegant though. owners were very attentive, and offered themselves for anything, badges, chairs, coffee, suggestions to restaurants - whatever. breakfasts were good, keishes (which i don't like,) but lacking the basics - toast, hard rolls, scrambled eggs, bagels and...

We were guests at the Carriage House from 7/15 to 7/18. The experience exceeded our expectations. Kathi and Phil are gracious hosts. Phil's dining recommendations were excellent. Breakfast at the Inn was superb: quiches, homemade croissants, blintzes...The Inn is clean and well kept. Beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels are conveniently provided. We will make the trip from Kansas again!
