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...

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!

My husband and I have been staying at the William’s Cottage Inn for the past 8 years and feel like it is “our home” away from home. Over the years, we have stayed in almost every room in the Inn to experience each room’s unique theme. Bette and Merle are warm and inviting and always make sure that our stay...

We have spent many vacations on LBI over the last 25 years, and discovered Williams Cottage Inn while walking to the beach a few years ago. We finally decided to spend our 20th anniversary there, and we couldn't have made a better choice. The entire experience was like a step back in time... it made us feel like stars in...

My Wife and I love Williams Cottage Inn, we discovered the Inn during a long walk back in January of 2014, and wound up making arrangements to be married there in May 2014 and we haven’t stopped going since. Bette & Merle just made us feel right at home. We love the special breakfast that comes with your stay. The...

Our daughter got married on LBI in May of this year and we booked almost all the rooms at Williams Cottage Inn on Friday & Saturday night for family. It was a wonderful experience for everyone. Bette & Merle couldn't have been more accommodating if they tried while still offering us a lot of privacy. All of the bridesmaids were...

We've stayed at the Inn at least 3 times, and loved each visit. We stayed in different rooms each time-they all are unique and wonderful. The Breakfast is as good as it gets, individually prepared and of "gourmet" quality. The inn is about a1/4 block from the beach with some rooms actually having a view of the water. There are...

We stayed in the rose room for a long week-end to attend Hop Sauce festival. The inn and the innkeepers are wonderful! The place is immaculate and beautiful! Merle is an awesome chef, our breakfasts were delicious. Bette was a fantastic hostess as well. Very friendly and welcoming. We would stay again but hopefully for a longer period of time!...

We've visited the cottage a few times with different rooms each trip. EVERY room is awesome and so tastefully decorated. Merle and Bette are perfect hosts, the porch is lovely for an evening glass of wine and for our breakfast - served by Merle! Great food, great people and a beautiful setting.
