We stayed at the J.D. Thompson Inn Bed and Breakfast on April 30 for the convenience and proximity to the Bass River State Forest (the Bassman triathlon was taking place at the park the next day). We truly enjoyed our brief stay at this charming B&B and wanted to share our impressions.
Catherine and Lorenzo were terrific guests, they went the extra mile to welcome us and make our stay as comfortable as ossible. They let the guests check in early (1 pm) provided we notified the hosts before our arrival. Catherine kindly guided us through the B&B facilities upon our arrival and provided us with maps and brochures to help guests obtain information of the town. Catherine kindly accommodated the guests' biking equipment (for the triathlon participants) in a room on the first floor of the bulding.
The B&B is conveniently located in a main street right in the center of the town, walking distance to restaurants, convenience stores, banks and the Tuckerton Seaport. It also has a deeded parking lot on the back of the building.
We stayed at room 7 on the second floor. It is large, beautifully decorated room tucked in the back of the building (see attached pictures). It has a nice sitting area, cathedral ceiling, fireplace, private bath, a small TV, and phone. The Inn offers wireless internet access; there is free coffee, tea, and snacks available 24 hours to the guests in the pantry area by the dining room . We were also treated with freshly baked cookies in the afternoon, nice touch!
The hosts gracefully made available a pack-and-go type of breakfast for the triathlon participants on early Sunday morning (bagels, almond cake, coffee, cereals, etc.). While my husband was participating at the Bassman triathlon, I returned back to the B&B to enjoy a delicious breakfast consisting of blueberry buttermilk pancakes with sausages. After a hearty meal, I sat by the comfort lounge next to the dining room to read and relax for a bit before heading out to the Tuckerton Seaport.
We were also offered the opportunity of a late check-out so that racers could freshen up, take a shower and get a snack. This was a very thoughtful gesture of the hosts and shows how they really care for their customers. We highly recommend this B&B and would love to go back for another short vacation in the south Jersey shore. Thanks a lot to Catherine and Lorenzo for their kind hospitality, attention to details and outstanding service!!
