My Wife and I rented the entire property for our bridal party and friends to stay in over memorial day weekend. We were married up in ship bottom and had our reception at the stateroom, but used the Island Guest House as a place to stay, and it served the perfect location for our rehearsal dinner.

LBI and especially Beach Haven, is a fun place for a destination wedding. If you are lucky, and or plan far enough in advance, you might be able to secure the WHOLE Island Guest House for you invitees. It was wonderfully decorated, with warmth, charm, and a real FAMILY touch. The long time owners have modified the house into a... More

Based on the photos are reviews we saw online, we were excited to stay at the Island Guest House. Unfortunately, our experience was far from pleasant. The bed&breakfast was outdated. The mattresses were terrible.. we had to change rooms at one point to sleep.. the spring was almost coming out of the mattress. For the price, we expected much nicer... More

Thank you so much for sharing that. After last season ended we started a massive face lift, beginning with a fresh coat of paint on the outside. Interior rooms received new carpeting, fresh paint, flat screen tv’s in many rooms, and the rooms are outfitted with brand new Thermopedic mattresses to make sure guests have the best sleeping experience.

First time here and many more visits too come! Quaint and cozy with each room furnished differently. My wife and I stayed in the Madison room with king size bed and private bath.

We were here for a friends wedding, so 4 couples stayed here. The hosts went above and beyond making us comfortable. The rooms were decorated lovely, beds comfortable and clean.

Really nice B & B. We were on the island for a wedding and choose to stay at the Island Guest House. Mark and Joanne could not have been better hosts. The rooms are not large, but clean and functional. They but together a breakfast that is top notch. We will stay again!

We have stayed here seven times now and will definitely keep coming back! Mark and Joanne, who run the bed and breakfast, are very friendly and truly want their guests to have a great time. They are also extremely attentive to requests and even remember preferences when you return months later. They make you feel like family, and we really... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Island Guest House has been Voted the Best Bed & Breakfast on Long Beach Island. It is a turn-of-the-century historic Inn, located oceanside in the heart of Beach Haven, New Jersey. You can walk to everything. The owners, Mark and Joanne, work hard to make you comfortable, and provide the lovely setting, ambience, and character that a 100 year old plus Inn affords, updated with modern amenities like WIFI, flat screen TV, A/C, etc. Some rooms have private decks, his/hers double size shower. Our bicycle-for-two is fun and lightweight beach chairs, boogie boards and outside enclosed shower to rinse off are convenient. Taste homemade breakfast and afternoon refreshments like cakes and cookies from family recipies, and iced tea or lemonade to quench your thirst after the beach. Enjoy coffee 24 hours, and chat with the Innkeepers about things to do in the area. Come and experience the restfulness of our Bed and Breakfast Inn! Couples can get away, and there is an area for well behaved children. We also have a cottage with gas fireplace and bathtub with jacuzzi jets that sleeps 4, and accepts dogs of a not-too-large, well behaved nature. Families and friends can find accommodations for up to 10 in their party. Our Sea Glass room is new, holds 36, and has a large flat screen TV for movie night or a special game or event. Our garden has 10 umbrella tables and over 300 blooms, has a lighted patio and candles in the evening. With lights shinging through the many stained glass windows in the Inn, it is a perfect place to gather and chat, or be secluded together any time. Our cafe kitchen with its large island is a favorite place for guests to feel welcome to come and perch and chat with the Innkeeper over a cup of coffee or treat, or watch us prepare goodies. You can even get a recipe or help! We try to provide assistance without hovering, being sensitive to your needs to relax, and get information when you need it by always being available. We carry our phone with us always even at night when we retire. Throughout our stay, we only ask that if you have any questions or needs, to let us know, because we cannot help you if you wait untill checkout. ... more   less
