For our first time on LBI,we stayed at the Williams Cottage Inn. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left we were treated like family. The Inn was charming and the hosts, Bette and Merle, ensured that our every need was met. Breakfast on the terrace was a nice way to

I would be lying if I said I wouldn't go back just for the baked pear in the morning. The breakfast was on another level and the setting was perfect. We stayed in the dome room and now we are planning on making it an annual tradition. The bed was so comfy and the multi-head

Hello Linda, Currently we are at our home in Florida, so we are not at the Inn. Otherwise, we could count the steps. The steps are NOT steep whatsoever. And they are covered with beautiful, soft Karistan carpet. From the first floor to the second there are stairs, separated by a landing and then a few more steps to the 2nd. floor. Good choice on rooms. The Blue Room is my our favorite room! Spacious, bright with great ammenities.

Hi, Linda. What would you like to know about this accommodation?
From the Williams Cottage Inn: We do host weddings. The number one rule is that members of the wedding party must book all 8 rooms. The booking cost is the price of the rooms plus a wedding venue fee. We are permitted per the borough of Beach Haven to a maximum of 60 people. You must provide their own caterers. We encourage you to go to our website to view our guest rooms and to see our pricing. If you would like to visit with us personally please call (609) 492-7272. Thank you so very much. Best of our regards, Bette and Merle

Hello, The couple that run the inn have a small dog themselves which is allowed at the inn, but on a leash. I would just call Bette the manager and ask her or email her.
