Betsy & Chip I want to thank you for your gracious hospitality during my recent 3 day visit. This was my first time at a B&B, so I wasn't sure what to expect. You delivered everything you advertised and THEN SOME! I wanted to attend the Bamboozle Festival and threw the dice five months ago on where to stay. I must say I lucked out on that one. From the first reservation phone call to check out you were extremely helpful. Loved the information book at check in about the inn, Asbury Park and the maps. The room and bath were both clean and spacious. The location to the festival and other activities was perfect, close enough to walk, far enough for peace. The bikes were also great for just cruising the boardwalk. I am admittedly a foodie and not shy when it comes to chow but you raised the ante on that. The variety of choices could please any palate. I of course had to try them all! You said the portions were generous and that is simply the truth. Chip is a great chef - every morning I was so eager to have breakfast and see what he had prepared. But first I would have one of Betsy's warm homemade muffins with homemade jam. The only thing missing was a scoop of vanilla ice cream! I must confess the "afternoon snack tray" was the clincher in the ad. What a beautiful tray loaded with a variety of fruit, nuts, cheeses, crackers, and chocolate each afternoon - again very tasty and generous. Both the front porch and court yard had ample seating and lovely flowers/landscaping to enjoy. If I or anyone I know ever travels near Asbury Park I have the scoop on the best stay in town.
