This was our second stay and we will be back again. The rooms are pleasant and clean - but the main attraction is the beautiful porch - provided the weather is cooperating. The owners and staff are great to deal with - very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is very good. Really can't think of a negative thing to say.

We had awful weather but the Inn was warm and cozy and the breakfasts very good. Nice homey atmosphere with a short walk to the beach. I would recommend a stay in Spring Lake at this lovely Inn. My sister, my cousin and I enjoyed the village, local restaurants and a lovely nearby spa for a mani-pedi!

Growing up in the area I was looking for a place to stay that would be geographically suitable to visit family and friends, but also feel like coming home (I live abroad). This place did not disappoint at all. It has a wonderfully homely and laid back atmosphere and the staff go out of their way to help. We are already planning our next trip back and plan to use it as a regular base when visiting family and friends in the future.

This was our first stay at the Ocean House and we are already planning to return next year. The location is outstanding, an easy one-black walk from the beach. The rooms are comfortable and beach, but also spotlessly clean. We were also quite pleased with the breakfast, with new menu choices each day featuring wonderful home-baked muffins and breads, overnight oats, fruit etc. The wide porch is a great spot to relax, have breakfast or enjoy a cup of tea after dinner. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We appreciate that none of this happens by accident - this if a very well-run gem of a hotel.

My husband, son, and I I stayed at the Ocean House from 7/18/22-7/22/22. We have stayed here three times previously. It is a wonderful place. Everyone who works there was kind, polite and helpful. Our rooms were comfortable, clean and cool during a hot week. The porch provided shade and a breeze and a quiet spot for reading. The innkeepers, Jared and Colleen were warm, attentive and kept everything running smoothly. They took great care in the preparation of delicious breakfasts each morning. Young people graciously served the tables. We always ate on the porch which was a true delight. The Ocean House handled the sold out week professionally and efficiently. The proximity to the beach makes coming back and forth easy which was necessary during the ninety plus degree days. The beach is exquisite.

This beautiful inn is my favorite place in the world. Porch-sitting, riding the bikes, hanging out in the big dining room, parlor and library are as much fun as ever. The beach was especially great this time with big flocks of piping plovers in the evening. And spring lake once again has a bookstore! Hearing the church bells across the lake and the train whistle in the distance at night makes it that much better.

Booked as we always do on my Wife's birthday. We booked not one , but two room , as our granddaughter joined us to celebrate my wife's 73 rd birthday. We have stayed at the Inn for several years , but were given rooms in what they call the annex. The rooms were way below par , ie: no light in closet , a small light in the bathroom and difficulty getting SOAP an TOWELS

Response from Colleen Kaloostian, Owner at The Ocean House
Responded Jul 29, 2022
We are sorry that you found your most recent trip sub par - if you needed additional lights in the room we would have been happy to accommodate the request. The housekeepers have updated their cleaning protocols due to covid, and therefore it takes longer for them to rooms around then it used to. The front desk is always around to grab anything additional for guests as long as you ask! Best of luck in your future travels.

Treated Mom for a Mother’s Day gift . From the moment we arrived the lady at the front desk was so helpful and personable she gave us a tour and all the details for our stay . The bed was so comfortable and the rooms adorable. Breakfast was a treat on the front porch - homemade crumb cake, sausage roll , French toast - yum! We will be back to stay longer next time . Thank you To the staff and Ocean House

We stayed at The Ocean House for one night to celebrate our anniversary and it was so peaceful and relaxing. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the room and house very clean. Coffee , tea, etc was available early in the morning. The breakfast was just right, you choose the night before what you would like and there is a hot breakfast which I think changes daily. Very close to the beach and town center. We loved sitting on the porch relaxing. So glad we picked The Ocean House!
