Beautiful quaint historical Inn half a block from the lake! Great original detail wood working through out the interior and exterior. Staff was very friendly and inviting. Breakfast was no small meal! Enough variety of food were you can easily pass up lunch. Front porch was a relaxing pleasure with old world charm. You can even go in the rear... More

Ronna continues to welcome us with friendly smiles and awesome memories as we share her beautiful Inn.

This Inn is fabulous!!! I had a great experience here and will be back again. The Innkeeper Ronna is very sweet and helpful, answered all of my questions about the area. She also provided a wonderful restaurant recommendation Whispers in Spring Lake, for our daughter's birthday celebration. I was really impressed with how clean our room was and how excellent...

We enjoyed our stay at Walden and will be returning again next year for our vacation. The staff is amazing and will make you feel at home. The breakfast is delicious and you even get passes for the beach with your stay.

The Staff was friendly and welcoming. The Inn was in shabby physical condition. It is NOT within walking distance of the beach, meaning that you must drive and hope to find a parking spot. Would not stay here again.

This past labor day i booked a room at the Walden on the Pond for my husband and I. The staff was so kind and made sure that they could meet our needs during our stay. The decor was so beautiful and very clean. The breakfast they were kind enough to put together was delicious and filling. The Walden on... More

I'm a little surprised by the good reviews. The owner is nice and certainly "eccentric," it's true. But she's a little overwhelmed, and barely keeping this place together. The hallways are dark and scary. You might be sharing a bathroom with people who look like they live there (as in living in a SRO), and there are roaches in the... More

Charming Inn that met our needs perfectly (Quiet location, Easy to find and close to beach (less than 1 mile from the beach with plenty of parking available)). We stayed in early July and really enjoyed every minute. The inn... More

This is my favorite place to stay at the Jersey Shore. Let me start by telling you that Spring Lake has clean, pristine beaches, beautiful homes, and a quaint downtown with shops & restaurants. This particular part of the shore attracts families and elderly more so than your typical Jersey Shore crowd (mid 20's/early 30's). We love staying at this... More

This is a lovely inn in close proximity of the train, beach, and Spring Lake restaurants. The people that work there are very nice and helpful. We enjoyed breakfast on the porch. I recommend this place!
