My wife and I stayed at the Jonathan Pitney House this past weekend (July 15, 16 and 17). As mentioned in a recent post this B & B has new ownership/management. These owners are “old hands” at inn operation having owned and run the nearby Colonial Inn (located in the quaint "Towne of Historic Smithville" - located just a few... More

We had a wonderful July 4th weekend at this B+B. The house was immaculately clean and beautifully appointed with Colonial decor, as well as historical information. Breakfast was delicious and piping hot. The hosts were welcoming and very helpful. The new proprietors had just taken ownership, so this review may not match older reviews that were done under previous ownership.

My fiancé took me here on Fourth of July weekend and I was amazed by the place he picked out for our short getaway. The outside grounds were amazing and beautifully designed. The house was like in a history book. You can tell that the NEW owner is happy to have this place and shows in her efforts to keep... More

I think some of these reviews are being a little rough. If you're expecting a stay at the Hilton, don't stay here but if you like quaint old buildings with a lot of history and charm then this is your place. The man who owns it is very sweet. He makes your breakfast and has great stories to tell if... More

We didn't even stay the night! There were many things that needed doing to make this place the type of B&B you would want to stay at, but the main thing was the cleanliness.....or lack of! I went to the bathroom, and there was dried urine on the floor,and on the inside of the toilet seat. The sink had a... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Pitney House and had a great time. It is a unique historic home that is owned by a very nice person. The price was reasonable, especially on a Saturday night in July and it is located only a few minutes from Atlantic City. It is a great alternative to staying at the... More

This is a building that was built in about 1840 (there is another attached building that was built in 1799) and restored in 1997. It was owned by it's namesake, who designed Atlantic City and arranged for the railroad to go there from Philadelphia. I think he stole the street names from the monopoly game. The owner is a really... More

Cheap rooms, easy access to AC and beach. Needs some cleaning and spiffing (dusty/cobwebs, and some worn/dirty rugs). But bed/bath area were clean which are what counts. Delicious filling breakfasts!
