Ocean Bay House is the most perfect place for a relaxing, elegant vacation. OBH is a lovingly restored, gorgeous, old summer house complete with porch and elegant rooms, just steps away from Great South Bay and the ferries to Fire Island ocean beaches. Relaxing on the porch, and enjoying the peace and quiet, my experience here has been rejuvenating, fun and relaxing. The rooms and bathrooms are elegant. Liz and Jen are the Managers and they are two of the most caring, friendly, people you will ever meet. They have created an atmosphere where everyone feels very welcome. Both Liz and Jen go to every length to insure that their guests are happy and taken care of. I have traveled to many places and this is the most delightful place I have ever stayed.

My wife and I tried this Inn based solely on the reviews. We were there for only 3 nights, last minute booking, and enjoyed the peace and calmness which went perfectly with the very clean and quaint environment. Perfect location for the beach, nice restaurants, excellent breakfast and just short distance to St Patrick's church. Liz and Jen are just wonderful hostesses. We will definitely be back for a much longer stay.

We just completed a three night stay at this lovely house; Liz and Jen are incredible hosts and we loved everything about our visit. The house was immaculate and was an easy walk to the downtown area stores and to the waterfront restaurants. The breakfasts were amazing and served in the beautiful dining room or on the patio; our room was spacious and cozy and well appointed. Thank you for providing a most enjoyable and calming stay. We can’t wait for our next visit!

This property is amazing. Quiet neighborhood, great location on the bay, incredibly beautiful and lovingly restored immaculate home. We stayed on the third floor and were thrilled with how they were able to turn the attic into 4 beautiful rooms. Liz and Jen are wonderful people. They made us feel at home the minute we arrived. Because of them we had the best experience we have ever had at any B and B, we cannot thank them enough!

A lovely stay. Liz is a wonderful host, never without a smile. The room I stayed in was on the third floor. The staircases were easy to navigate. Once inside the room I knew I made the right choice. The room was clean and airy, The AC worked well, the bathroom was planned well, and spacious. It was nice to find the room came with wine glasses, a cork screw, water and snacks. Tea was available 24/7! The breakfasts were cooked to order, and I was given choices. I enjoyed my breakfast on the wonderful front porch. In the afternoon I sat in the shade on the back porch, and the front porch. The pool was clean and the pool towels, were large and soft! Next time I am in Bay Shore I will plan to stay here again and again. My only suggestion would be to provide a few hangers and a rack to hang clothes. Don't miss the opportunity to stay and enjoy the peacefulness of good ole Bay Shore.
