“Loved the room, the food and the hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2010

The hosts were very welcoming, like visiting a brother and sister that you actually like. The food was TOO good and very plentiful. Lots of choices to suit all palates, including fresh fruits and melon, home baked goodies (the monkey bread was to die for) and hot entrees (request the French toast before you arrive.) Plus the usual cereals, toast, bagels, juice, etc. Coffee all day and night. The rooms were charming Victorian, cozy and pretty. Nice pool and very close to the beach (I'm lazy so, trust me, it was close.) Even though it rained during our stay we were glad we came. It was so relaxing. Lots to do...two maritime museums, antique shops, lots of restaurants, shops, etc.

Have you ever been on a vacation where it takes you at least two or three days to unwind? Ring the bell and step inside the world of Judy and John's bed and breadfast and you'll immediately feel the tension drain from your shoulders as if you had just set down your baggage( which you have in more ways than one.) It's a world unto itself and you beg to be a part of it, which is readily acceptable. It's not going back in time and place but more like just going back to wherever you prefer to be for now. You decide, that's the power of it. You choose. To get somthing different on this vacation, you do something different. You step inside and stay for a while.

We've stayed at hotels at Long Beach Island for years and wanted to give a B&B a chance. It is so much nicer and a much better experience. Victoria had two outside porches to relax on, great breakfasts included (each day with a different homemade item), a nice pool in back, free bikes to use and for the beach, towels, chairs and beach passes were all included (plus they're close to the beach). Plus the owners and staff were very nice, friendly and accommodating to us. I highly recommend Victoria and would definitely go back there.

This is a wonderful place to stay! My husband has always maintained that he did not like the Jersey Shore, that is until we spent a couple of nights at the Victoria Guest House. Everything was exceptional. The rooms were spotless, the grounds were well kept, the food was delicious, the help were very pleasan and the hosts, John & Judy, were the BEST!! It's a short walk to the beach, the inn supplies the beach chair, towels, beach bag and tags. There's a refridg full of cold water available, another fridg to store your personal things such as beer, wine, soda, etc. We woke early, had a cup of coffee, read our newspapers on the porch and went off for a bike ride on a couple of the inns free bikes. When we returned breakfast was being served. We've been back home for 24 hrs and we are already planning our next visit to Beach Haven and of course, the only place to stay is the Victoria Guest House.

We stayed for two nights at the Victoria Guest House in early August. We were on Long Beach Island to attend our daughter-in-law's baby shower. The room (Room D) was well appointed and extremely clean. We were greeted by John and Judy as soon as we arrived and provided with all the information needed for our stay. Located a very short walk to the beach, beach towels and chairs were provided. Breakfast was delicious and included fresh fruit, a hot egg dish, and a variety of pastries and breads. Shops and restaurants are one block away and our room overlooked a park/village green area. The room was very quiet - we never heard the other guests - and we had access to a large porch where we had coffee and read the paper in the early morning. We had to leave very early the second morning and John was up with coffee made for us - and even offered to cook us waffles at 6:45 am! We loved our stay (our first to the Jersey shore) and plan to return to Victoria Guest House soon!

I am very very picky about hotels that I stay in. I would rather pay twice the amount to stay in a clean, nice place then something that is only mediocre. This was priced well within the normal range of any hotels in the area and was absolutely spectacular. John and Judy were friendly and accomodating, the room was air conditioned, there was a TV, private bathroom, a heated inground pool, bikes, beach bags, towels...you name it. Would come back again in a heartbeat!

The Victoria Guest House is like stepping back in time to when this gracious old house was new. The owners maintain the property perfectly. The house is in immaculate condition, as was the room we stayed in. The grounds are like a park, the pool is clean and inviting, and best of all....the front porch. It's wide, comfortable, filled with white wicker furniture - it's a great place to catch the sea breeze.

John and Judy's hospitality makes the stay pleasant and fun; like visiting friends. Judy certainly knows her way around the kitchen ~ breakfasts are delicious. The pastries and coffee cakes she bakes are placed after breakfast so guests can continue to savor her creations.

The rate is pricey, but at least the quality is good for the money you pay. With the location just a short walk to the beach, you can't beat this inn for a lovely and relaxed vacation.
