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

Ronna was a pleasure to speak with on the phone when we were making our reservations. When we arrived we greeted by the hospitable, Ben and were pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to a...

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

I recently stayed at the Walden on the Pond with a friend and I have to say the service has been consistently great. The rooms are spectacular, decent size, bathrooms are good and showers work well (with good water pressure). The porch view was great and specially as beach were near so we can enjoy the night life as well.... More

We enjoyed our stay at this Inn. We decided last minute to get out of New York City. The Inn was just 4 short blocks from the train. We booked a small guest room for 2 - the price was great and it was very comfortable. The staff gave use great recommendations for dinner and places to go. We will... More

We stayed at The Walden in 2010, and it was very nice. Recently went back for a long weekend - it was so Great! The Inn Keeper is very friendly and accomodating. The rooms are very clean and decorated nicely. We relaxed in the backyard (oasis) reading, drinking wine and watching the wildlife. Breakfast on the front Victorian porch was... More

We had a great time -- staff was very nice -- room was clean and cozy for our family. Also the pond was so much fun for the kids -they keep talking about the Swan that had babies -- the owner told us she comes back every year!
