We made last minute plans to spend NYE in Asbury Park. Never thought we'd find a hotel - thank goodness we found this one! It's half a block from the beach and within walking distance to Asbury. The room (two twin beds) was adorable. The proprietors (Dick and Jane) were wonderful - I feel like they're family. Breakfast in the... More

The Lillagaard is right by the beach in Ocean Grove, and about a twenty minute walk from Asbury Park and a five minute walk from Main Street which has several nice restaurants. The rooms were nice, Victorian, and clean, though the bathroom was small. Nice breakfast every morning, and great large deck and porch wide enough for multiple parties to... More

My partner and I stayed at the Lillagaard Inn B&B during Labor Day weekend. I highly recommend this charming inn. It's like stepping back in the Victorian times. Jane and Dick, the innkeepers, will make you feel as you're part of the family. And the breakfasts are the best- eggs and bacon, fresh fruit and fruit salad, home made delicious... More

Lots of steps and narrow hallways to get to an en suite queen corner room. The bed was comfortable and there were four windows. One wall air conditioner as not adequate to cool the room; at best it became tolerable. To make up for no coolers in the rooms, the owners did provide space in a fridge. I did not... More

Very, Very Disappointing! Not recommended. If you are a Bed & Breakfast Inn lover such as we are you know what to expect and what not to when staying at one. If this will be your first time staying at one then do not choose this Inn you will be missing the true experience, look at another establishment. The warmth,... More

Rooms are clean, food was great, owners are terrific. Would definitely recommend and would stay again in a heartbeat, location and views of the beach are out of this world. It's a one of a kind bed and breakfast.

As a 60th birthday gift to me, my daughter, Rebecca, both planned and financed a 3 day, 2 night stay in Ocean Grove, New Jersey at an Inn less than 1 block from the beach. Aside from being with my beautiful daughter, and being 1 block from the beach, the stay at the Inn was uncomfortable, to say the least.... More

If you like long walks by the sea with easy access to great food (ranging from pizza to excellent seafood), this charming B&B might just be your perfect headquarters on your weekend getaway. We stumble upon Ocean Grove and just fallen in love with its beautiful Victorian homes. Excellent options to eat and just chill. If you are looking to... More

Dick and Jane are the most gracious of hosts in their huge 20th century bed and breakfast. The rooms are filled with paraphernalia that distinctively reflects a feminine, Victorian approach to hospitality. The basement breakfast room is permanently set up for etiquette classes in which Jane is certified, and the equipment for a ladies' tea service is prominently displayed.

Dick & Jane Wehr are the most perfect hosts that you could ever hope to have. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived, we never wanted to leave. Each room has it's own charming historical theme, most with private baths and beautifully intricate decorative paintings. They have so many rooms with ocean views and two "real" porches... More
