“A must stay destination in a great beach town. Close to both beach and downtown area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

If you have had the B&B experience you know it can be somewhat uncomfortable. This place is NOT that experience. The layout of the rooms is very well done. We were very comfortable with the accommodations. Next the quality of the rooms and the hosts is exceptional. Finally, the location terrific being close to the beach and the downtown area.

In our situation we had our 2 year old son with us and they were accommodating to our needs.

Net/net if you are looking for a great place to stay near both the beach and other small town restaurants and stores this is it.

My wife and I recently visited the Tandem Bike Inn. We were looking for a relaxing getaway at the beach, without the crowds and difficulties managing a vacation spot. The Tandem Bike Inn was absolutely perfect if you are looking to getaway. The folks running the Inn were one step ahead of us. They anticipated all of our needs. Want to eat fresh fish, overlooking the water? They set up a reservation. Want to take a bike ride? The next thing I know they were adjusting the seat on a Tandem bike. I highly recommend staying at the Tandem Bike Inn. They went above and beyond. I will be back as soon as possible.

Wonderful stay at the Tandem Bike Inn. Mike and Ann Marie were extremely nice and accommodating. The rooms were good size and very clean. Beautiful beach is about a 10 minute walk down a tree-lined street. Easy parking. Hand-made breakfast on the porch is a nice perk! Would recommend this inn to couples, singles of families.

We just returned from our visit to the Tandem Bike Inn on August 21st-23rd. We can't say enough about our hosts, Mike and Ann Marie and their beautiful inn. The inn is tastefully furnished and our room was very comfortable.Breakfast each morning was delicious as well as the afternoon home baked cookies, brownies, muffins, and breads. We enjoyed riding the bikes provided by the inn keepers, even trying out the tandem bike. Mike and Ann Marie provided beach badges as well as chairs, carts, and towels. Our hosts were so gracious and really made us feel at home. We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for a truly enjoyable vacation at the jersey shore.

My husband and I visited the Tandem Bike Inn in November, shortly after the hurricane. The town was still recovering, but the Tandem Bike Inn was running as normal.

Mike and Anne Marie made us feel right at home - from the time that we got there until we left, they were there to provide a snack or answer any of our questions. The food was great, the room was immaculate, and Mike even let us take out the tandem bike! We weren't so good at it, so we switched them out for two regular bikes. I agree with other reviewers - the decor is very tasteful and makes the stay feel like a real beach retreat.

We'll be back.

Room Tip: Breaker's Retreat (Room 5) was very luxurious!

Very nicely furnished, clean and up-to-date B&B. The breakfasts are outstanding and afternoon tea is a wonderful bonus! The food is all freshly made, delicious and there is plenty of it. Providing tandem bikes (as well as singles) is a nice touch. Located only a few minutes from the beach, this is a great place to relax. It is also just a few steps away from wonderful eateries, especially notable is Kaya's Kitchen, a vegetarian/vegan delight.

Stayed overnight on July 30th to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I agree with the other reviewers. Clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. Anne Marie and Mike were very accommodating. Suggestions on where to eat, run and ride bikes. Also let us use beach tags and bikes prior to checking in and after check out. The food was yummy. Only thing I would change is stay another night.
