The Johnson House is a couple hundred yards from the beach, is very clean and the owners (Hellin and Joe) are very, very nice. Bed was comfortable, a/c worked great and the bathroom was tremendous. WiFi, bikes, beach chairs, badges and umbrellas included. Be aware there are NO televisions in the rooms; could be a plus or a minus. There is a large tv in the parlor for guest use.
My relatives came to visit and stayed at the Johnson House Inn. As a longtime resident of Spring Lake, I have been inside most of the B&B's in the area, even sampling their breakfast offerings. The Johnson House Inn outshines them all. The owners are wonderful--accommodating, friendly, and down-to-earth. They have run the place for many years and their expertise shows. The coffee is hot, the scones absolutely delicious, and the breakfast area is inviting. I am told by my relatives that the beds were very comfortable. I did see the rooms on the third floor and they're sunny and bright. The first floor (including the large wraparound front porch) is bright and airy and welcoming.
I can't say enough about this place! I stayed with my daughter and granddaughter and we were treated like part of the family. Our hosts were friendly and so accommodating. Our room was very attractive and clean, with comfortable beds. Excellent location and our breakfasts were quite good, with choice of breads, yogurt, fruits and cereal and well cooked eggs (your choice) and bacon one day and delicious scones the next. We will be back!
We had a great time during our annual girls weekend. It also helped that the weather was perfect. We enjoyed Spring Lake and were happy we chose this town over the surrounding towns after we had a chance to venture out and do some exploring. Johnson House is nicely maintained and had a great porch to sit out on during the afternoons and evenings. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming. It was an easy walk to the beach and chairs and bikes were available to borrow. The only complaint was that there were only 2 bath towels for 2 people in the room. (We each like to have an additional one for our hair). We did request additional towels but they were never left...not sure if it was an oversight or misunderstanding so we just made do.
I stayed at the Johnson House for a long weekend and it exceeded my expectations. It is 5 house in from the beach and has a lovely and inviting wrap-around porch. I had no trouble parking and beach badges, chairs and beach towels were readily available. The hosts are simply the kindest people you will meet. They went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable. Breakfast was healthy and delicious - fruit, yogurt, toast, bagels, cereal, granola, home made scones or breakfast treats, etc. My room was larger than I expected, very clean and comfortable. I can not wait to go back next summer. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing vacation.
