We had a wonderful stay at Barclay Cottage!! The Inn is beautiful and immaculate, and the Innkeepers, Sharon and Rich are the sweetest, most thoughtful people! The rooms are well laid out and the bath huge (especially for a house that is 121 years of age!!) We stayed in Davenport, formerly known as Alice's Room, and it was perfect! The... More

My husband and I stayed at Barclay Cottage for a weekend in June. Sharon and Rich are lovely people and made us feel so welcome. We stayed in the Davenport room and it was comfortable and had lovely windows that looked out on the porch. They provided beach towels and water for days on the beach and a communal refrigerator...

We recently stayed for 4 nights and had and absolutely wonderful stay. The inn is beautiful! It's 2-3 blocks from the beach...a very easy walk to the boardwalk. Rich and Sharon were so gracious and we enjoyed getting to know them. Breakfasts were delicious and creatively presented. We stayed in the Davenport Room (Alice's room on the website). Very comfortable,... More

This place is like a jewel, the owners are two great person and it was lovely to chat with both. Breakfast is beyond good, food when carely prepared has a totally different taste. It is a pity I was there just for one night

We stayed there for our honeymoon. The owners were very friendly. They provided exceptional personalized service. They are great cooks. The cottage was clean and very cozy. We enjoyed our getaway. Breakfast was better than any restaurant I have been to. This is a must visit getaway cottage. A+

I visited Barclay Cottage in May 2015 and realized that I had not left a review. But we had an amazing experience. This is a perfect home away from home. Rich and Sharon are wonderful people. Our accommodations were amazing. The food was amazing. We felt right at home and were pampered even before we arrived as we were contacted... More

How can I describe such an amazing experience? We were on our last babymoon at 38 weeks pregnant, and it felt like we were visiting family who only wanted to pamper us. We were pretty much the only guests there that night. We went out for a couple’s massage (which they offer in-house, but we didn’t know that at the... More

My husband and I live maybe 10 minutes away from this wonderful place and just needed a day away from life. We had an amazing stay with wonderful owners making everything so easy.

Rich and Sharon are "on their game" with the Barclay! Fantastic hosts, exceptional breakfast, brilliant clean rooms! The Barclay is a 4-5 hour drive for us, but well worth the result. Even after the drive, walking into the Barclay, it is home. Within an hour.....total relaxation and stress free body is obtained! Within walking distance of the boardwalk...if you really... More

Sharon & Rich, both of who grew up in the area, provide the perfect balance of southern charm -- helpful, friendly service without being obtrusive. Their restaurant selections were spot on -- Tautog's (a must) and Waterman's. Rudee's Inlet was a great choice for drinks enjoyed in rocking chairs outside right by the water. And, Rich's breakfasts were nothing short... More
