Best wraparound porch ever! With all the guest bedrooms, each having a private bath, my extended family, kids and all, stayed at this fabulous house together this past weekend. The beautiful beach was only a few steps away and we basically spent the rest of our time on the front porch. There's a great market (Pearl Street Market) a couple... More

Had another happy visit to WCI - fabulous place, great hosts and WOW breakfasts ! Sitting on the porch, listening to the waves, walking on the beach (which is so close and almost like our own private spot). Thank you Merle, Bette and all of the staff for making our visit so memorable We've visited twice now and are sure... More

A totally amazing experience for our first visit with Bette and Merle. The inn is gorgeous and our room was perfect. Breakfast was outstanding and we truly enjoyed chatting with Bette and Merle who genuinely love being innkeepers. They even recommended the best places to dine nearby. We will certainly be back for more of this beyond 5-star experience!

Wonderful three days on Long Beach Island at this inn. The room was perfect, our hosts were lovely and you can't beat the great location across from the Beach! We took advantage of the bicycles each day for a beautiful ride. Definitely the right choice for a short stay on this island

Just stayed at WCI for second time. Looks as nice as ever and you can't beat the location in terms of its proximity to the beach. Bette and Merle are very friendly and a pleasure to chat with. They do whatever they can to ensure you enjoy your time in LBI so use them as a resource for finding whatever... More

Merle & Bette were fantastic hosts for our long weekend away. Breakfast served is among the best you'll have at any restaurant. Location of the B&B is excellent, as the beach entrance is across the street. Williams Cottage provides everything you need - beach chairs, towels and tags. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping rounds location out nicely. The home... More

Want to feel as if you have stayed with long time friends, the Williams Cottage Inn is the B&B for you! We were wowed as soon as we walked through the door. The decor, hospitality of Bette and Merle, and the gourmet breakfast were 5 Star. Can't wait to return. Carol and Steve

My wife and I spent our weddings night here and we have come back at least 10 times since June 2009. We love Bette & Merle. They are the nicest people you will ever meet. Each room is unique and beautiful. We love being across the street from the beach, but what keeps us coming back is the gourmet breakfast!
