I don't always stay here because it can be very expensive. Sometimes I stay at the "connected" Oceanus Motel next door...and before that, The Breakers down the street. But what The Bellmoor Inn has above all else is a sense of quiet and peace. My room is most often (I choose it) off the little courtyard with a fountain and pond, with goldfish. This time, in mid-October, I spent time out in this small garden area writing and drawing...in fact I finished and sent to the Inn a copy of the fountain watercolor and ink sketch. When rates are down and the summer hordes of people leave the beach, I spring...even in in winter. You can't beat the Bellmoor for elegance.
