“A wonderful stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2009

We had a great stay at the Williams Cottage Inn. We stayed in the Angel Room - very clean, beautiful bathroom, luxurious shower. Betty and Merle are gracious hosts. Friendly, but not intrusive, we were treated like cherished old friends. Breakfast was absolutely the most delicious and abundant we have ever had. As pleasing to the eye as to the palate. A wonderful and relaxing stay!

spent our 30th anniversary at the inn in the dome room. It was wonderful. We were there during the week and LBI was quiet. We did lots of walking and bike riding (bikes provided by the inn) We walked on the beach ( only a few steps from the inn) and enjoyed the seaside community atmosphere. The inn was beautifully restored and Betty and Merle (the innkeepers) were always there to make sure everything was perfect. I will definitely be back

We stayed here for one night only in May and did not want to leave the next day! The inn is beautiful and Bette & Merle are 2 of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet! We stayed in the Dome Room which has a vaulted ceiling with chandelier, jacuzzi bath tub and walk in shower and huge windows with amazing views of the beach. Breakfast was the best part! Merle is quite the chef :) If you're looking for a great place to rest, relax and enjoy...we highly recommend Williams Cottage Inn!

Our stay at the Williams Cottage Inn could not have been more comfortable. The facility is top flight and the hospitality of the Inn Keepers was outstanding. They welcomed our fancy bikes and accommodated our worries about securing them. They worked our breakfast time around our riding schedule. The brunch was outstanding and generous - the portion size was perfect even after a long ride.

This beautiful house is elegance at it's finest. From the time you enter the Inn, it's as if you are transcended to a long ago era. The gracious Inn Keepers, Merle and Betty went out of their way to make sure our visit was perfect. I would recommend Williams Cottage Inn to everyone that cherish memories. The wonderful wrap around porch with an exquisite home made breakfast, prepared with the freshest, most beautifully cooked and graciously presented food was more than we ever expected. We will definitely return to be pampered again.

My wife and I just returned from a weekend at The Williams Cottage Inn.
My mother taught me that if I had nothing good to say, then I should say nothing.
Based on our visit this past weekend, I have an opportunity to say something good.
We've done a lot of traveling in our time, and have stayed at many B&B's around the country. This B&B is in a class by itself. Talk about attention to detail! This house is perfection by the square inch. If the decor and furnishings are perfection, they are surpassed only by the new innkeepers, Bette and Merle. They are the most gracious host and hostess that one could ask for. Their cooking and professionalism are unsurpassed. They could certainly be used as the perfect business model for a successful B&B.

We can't wait to return!

My husband and I really enjoyed the romantic and beautiful setting at the Inn. We couldn't have asked for a better time..Everything was just perfect, from the amazing room settings to the gourmet breakfast. Merle and Betty, the inn keepers were very informative and helpful. I would recommend the Williams Cottage Inn to anyone..
