This is my favorite place to stay at the Jersey Shore. Let me start by telling you that Spring Lake has clean, pristine beaches, beautiful homes, and a quaint downtown with shops & restaurants. This particular part of the shore attracts families and elderly more so than your typical Jersey Shore crowd (mid 20's/early 30's). We love staying at this... More

This is a lovely inn in close proximity of the train, beach, and Spring Lake restaurants. The people that work there are very nice and helpful. We enjoyed breakfast on the porch. I recommend this place!

We stayed at the Inn's "small cottage" during memorial weekend (2015). Firstly thanks for the hospitality Ronna...and allowing our two small pups! We found the small cottage convenient especially the private entrance (which is accessed directly from the front porch - this allowed us to come and go without tromping through the main house). The pond behind the property was... More

I took my mother to the Walden on the Pond for her birthday. Spring Lake's B & B's are the last bastion of Victorian decor. The breakfast room and porch are decorated with wicker Victorian chairs, floral prints, flowers, and other frilly items. The room we stayed in (#6) was small. The bathroom, also small, could use towel racks. There... More

I visited Walden on the Pond in Spring Lake, NJ with my daughter in June. I was really taken back by the outstanding service at breakfast & throughout our stay. When I left I insisted on giving the staff a tip, but they graciously refused. It was wonderful sitting on the porch in the evening having the ocean breezes. In... More

There is nothing exceptional about this place - nothing good and nothing bad. My wife and I stayed there on a trip to see family. First of all making a reservation was a bit of a challenge with lots of phone calls and e-mails back and forth until we were sure we had a room the week before. The rooms... More

My husband and I stayed here on Memorial Weekend for my birthday for a mini Spring Lake area beach trip and had a great stay.

I stayed here with a friend for 2 nights last week during a mini beach vacation to Spring Lake. I enjoyed it so much that I've already booked a room for my next trip in a couple of weeks. The owner is very accommodating and the grounds are beautiful. There is a very spacious back yard area overlooking the pond,... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Walden on the Pond when we decided to take a spontaneous weekend trip. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the picturesque grounds overlooking the pond and the quaint, Victorian porch done in white wicker and beautiful hanging flowering plants. Eating breakfast on the porch was serene and relaxing, but... More
