We have been coming to WCI for seven or eight years and it never disappoints, all you need to bring are some casual clothes and a bathing suit, everything you need for the beach is provided (towels,chairs,cooler, bug spray), Bette and Merle's hospitality is warm and relaxing the conversations easy, breakfast is varied and always delicious, rooms are always clean...

When it came to celebrating my husbands birthday, we knew exactly where to go. This was our fourth visit to Williams Cottage Inn, and certainly won't be our last. This Victorian was beautifully restored, is a half a block from the ocean, and is run by the best possible innkeepers, Bette and Merle. This place is something special, and a... More

The Innkeepers, Bette and Merle Van Liere, are warm and friendly and go out of their way to make guest comfortable. I originally thought I made a reservation for 2 nights for a wedding and found out that it never went through when I arrived as they had no reservation for me. It was not their fault, it was mine!...

Beautiful bed and breakfast recently restored! This is in a great location where you can walk to restaurants or just a walk a few steps to the beach. The inn has an array of rooms to choose from. All rooms are meticulously decorated and very clean. I agree with another reader that the bed linens seemed a bit worn, The... More

This was our first visit to Wlliams Cottage, we stayed for 5 nights in the Blue Room; and as mentioned previously, this property has many perks. In my opinion, hotel/motel choices on LBI are very limited, but Williams Cottage made our stay enjoyable. It's not a place for a family getaway with young children, it's geared towards couples and adults... More

Beautiful, luxurious bed and breakfast! We stayed here on our wedding night. The Dome Room was very special, the décor was perfect for pictures of me before the wedding. The hosts are wonderful people and make an amazing breakfast too! This B & B is located across from the ocean with glorious views. My husband and I enjoyed our stay!

My husband and I stayed at the Williams Cottage Inn for several days in July. The historic and beautifully restored Victorian-style building is situated on a quiet street mere steps from the wonderful beach (which itself had also undergone a very recent and dramatic restoration). It is also within walking distance of restaurants and shops in the heart of Beach... More

The Williams Cottage Inn sets the standard for our vacation accommodations! We have visited the Inn numerous times over the recent years, and it has become a summer/ fall tradition for my husband and me. The Inn is beautiful, comfortable and very well maintained. Breakfasts are exceptional! They supply you with just about everything...beach towels, coolers for the beach, bikes,... More

Recently returned from a visit with my husband to the Williams Cottage Inn. It's become a tradition with us to spend a few days here each summer. As always, it was an amazing experience. The inn is lovely and incredibly clean and comfortable, and conveniently located right across the street from the beach. What really makes this place special are... More

We LOVE this bed and breakfast. The owners, Bette and Merle, truly make you feel like family. They give you space, but if you want to chat, they are just lovely. My husband and I first visited this Inn 2 years ago. We love the charm of the decor as the charm of Bette and Merle. Every year, we come... More
