It was a last minute trip for a weekend getaway. From navigating the website to the departure the following day, this was absolutely the perfect spot. The staff, Leo and company were extremely knowledgeable and accommodating to all of our needs and beyond. The rooms were clean and fashionably decorated with old world charm. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in offered by any Inn or Hotel. The breakfast was exceptional and even took home a dozen home made muffins made perfectly. Will revisit again!
Me and my new wife stayed here for our wedding weekend. Our venue was in Neptune so this was a perfect spot for us (Close to both the ocean and our venue). Our room was very clean and had a GREAT view of the ocean. The only downside was that the shower was VERY small and the sink had a slow drip, but neither of these things took away from our weekend. The staff and the breakfast were amazing both days. They made sure we were taken care of. They made our stay extra special.
I have stayed at the Cashelmara Inn on several occasions when visiting Avon for weddings/ family functions. The rooms that I have stayed in where very unique and comfortable. Since the Inn is a B&B, a breakfast of your choice is offered with the lodging. In the summer, breakfast is offered on the front porch. The Inn is located directly across from the beach and within a short walk of many fine dining choices (casual and fine dining restaurants). A great alternative to a "soul-less" big box hotel chain.
We stayed two nights and are really glad we did! Our bed was super comfy and the breakfasts were outstanding! It was also exceptionally quiet! Our favorite thing, though, was the beach service the inn offers: for only $20, they set up an umbrella and chairs for you on the beach and then pick them up for you later. Well worth the $20! We'll definitely be back!!! Our only suggestion to the Inn would be to make in-room movies available.
(Be patient, I know this review long but it’s worth the read. It will sway you to book, as it did us!) )My husband, Stan, and I planned on coming down to the Jersey Shore for just two nights. Stan loves the Spring Lake area. In searching for a place, I loved what I saw on the Cashelmara website. Looked perfect. As a smart consumer, I searched for the reviews. Strangely, there were only one or two RECENT reviews on Yelp or Trip Advisor. But WHY?! I was VERY concerned; I became VERY skeptical now. I had no clue; was making up my own reasons why people were not forthcoming with reviews. But I had to find out! So I called Cashelmara personally...and spoke with Mary and asked her flat out! She said she wasn’t sure; maybe because they had many repeat customers. I told Mary we travel quite a bit and our standards were very high but we expect nothing less: IMMACULATE inn, private room & bath, FULL FRESH breakfast, AMPLE outdoor seating for all, EASY ACCESS to beach with prepaid passes, COMFORTABLE sand chairs and large beach towels provided for a carefree day at the beach—in other words we expected to be pampered. Mary said this, “The inn has been here for 35 years, I’ve been here for 30. I think it’s very nice. When you get here, I would be happy to walk up to your room and check it out personally. If there’s something you’re not happy with, you’ll let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate you. I think you’ll like it here.” Mary’s honesty swayed us to book two nights here. What may I say? We LOVED IT SO MUCH, we booked a third night!!! Cashelmara’s staff definitely pays exceptional attention to details. They are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. And oh—the breakfasts! And oh oh—the all-day candy bar!! And oh oh oh —the mid-day decadent baked goods!!! And oh oh oh oh—the in-house movie theater?! Yes!! So consider this an HONEST, QUALIFIED, RAVING review of a hidden gem. (BTW the only reason I call it a hidden gem is because there was so up to date recommendations touting it’s BEAUTY & CHARM!) Thank you Mary & staff for a fabulous stay!!!! We’ll definitely be back! KJ & S …
