I needed a change of scenery after 14 months in NYC. This little town of Spring Lake was just what the doctor ordered and the Ocean House was the perfect place to stay. The innkeeper family and all staff are friendly, warm, and accommodating. I arrived way earlier than check in time and was able to register, check my bag and get into my room before the "official" time. The room was small but comfortable, and immaculate. The huge porch was great for sitting and reading (and for enjoying the nice , included breakfast the next day). Hot and cold coffee and cold water always available. One block to the beach, 3 blocks to the town center, and just a few blocks further to the train station - a great option for a city-dweller looking to make a quick, car-less getaway. Wished I'd been able to stay longer, but will certainly be back.

Location is great - 2 blocks off the beach; bath water is hot with good pressure; bikes are complimentary and in good shape! (Tires fully inflated...) The owners Colleen and Jared are super nice also. The crowd seemed quiet which we like. It's Victorian for sure - lots of carpeting and tchotchkes around. But that's fine!

Family run Guesthouse with great staff who are ready to make your stay the best with lots of personal touches (like ever present beverages/snacks, bikes, and information about Spring Lake). Porch it with a blanket if cool, have breakfast if warm enough, your choice always, and enjoy the nearby park and beach a short block away. Breakfast outstanding, great coffee, quick, relaxed service. Accomodations great too, good bed and linens, toiletries, rain shower head in bath...We loved every minute of our stay and will return soon!

We were staying as a large group as part of a wedding party. The rooms were clean and comfortable, all differentiating in decor. The owners and service were top notch in hospitality and Maddie (the resident chocolate lab) could be found wondering around and greeting guest. Being a dog lover, she stole the show. It was a great stay all around.
