After initially visiting The Sea Spray on a weekend last October, we returned for two nights in late June. Once again, we could not have been more pleased with our stay. Mary Ellen and Eric are great hosts who do everything to make their guests feel welcome and accommodated. The breakfasts were amazing. Our room, The Love Letter, was worth... More

One of the many reasons that guests return on a frequent basis is that Mary Ellen and Eric make each person feel special. They have the ability to retain a tidbit or fact about each of their visitors. They far exceed one's expectations of what Inn owners provide to their clients. As my wife and I headed out to the...

My family and I have been coming here for over 5 years. We truly love it-it has everything. There is nothing better than walking 5 minutes to the beach, 5 minutes back and then have a lovely bath and an air conditioned room to sleep in-with cable TV and wi-fi. The food is also delicious!

Mary Ellen makes the most delicious breakfast. The crumb cake is awesome! Everything is so charming and clean. It was so nice to sit on the deck or... More

This was our second visit to Sea Spray Inn and loved it as always. Mary Ellen and Eric welcomed us and provided with excellent service. Honestly, I would love to keep this place a secret because MaryEllen is an excellent cook and always feel at home when we come to visit. Each of the rooms has a history and we... More

My stay at the Sea Spray Inn was so relaxing. Mary Ellen and Eric have really got this all figured out. The Cabana Room was perfect for a gal like me, on her own in Ocean Grove. I wanted for nothing. The room was clean, comfortable, charming and well appointed. I was taking notes for my new home on how... More

Mary Ellen and Eric Tellefsen are the ultimate innkeepers! They are warm and friendly and have the most charming Inn I have ever stayed in. Amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and beaches. There are so many things I could comment on - their attention to detail in the Inn. The furniture. The comfortable bed and claw foot tub in... More
