We stayed in the loft for two nights. Our accommodation was adequate, but the little studio needed some deep cleaning and renovation. Maybe that is the plan for the winter...The bathroom, particularly around the shower, had signs of mold or perhaps it was just plain dirt...so much so that I did not want to take a shower. The toilet seemed sluggish, though it did work. The ceiling ventilators were very dusty and looked like they had not been cleaned in quite a while. Some of the furniture seemed somewhat makeshift....especially the plastic in the breakfast room. We did have an adequate breakfast with very good coffee. We did not find the owners particularly friendly. They were talking a lot with other guests, some of whom they seemed to know. Our general feeling was of the establishment as a business, and that the owners were a bit tired of it....again, maybe the result of our being there at the end of the season. While we don't expect a dog and pony show, a bit more friendliness would be reasonable. The location was great....just a short walk to the main street and the beach. We would not come back again, but look for something else in the area. The
price of this BnB is good, but I would rather spend a little more and get a nicer atmosphere.

Room Tip: Try rooms on the second floor. They might be better than the loft studios since they are the original bedrooms of the house.

Our girls weekend started by checking into this charming, well pointed B & B, greeted by our Hosts John and Pat. The room was so sweet and perfect for our girls weekend. Each room has their own bathroom, ceiling fan, A/C unit. Their is so much charm in this house built in 1901.

The breakfast is unbelievable, with lots of fresh fruit, yummy muffins and a french toast dish to die for. I came home with two new Recipes.......they were That Good.

Its in a great location, walking distance from the beach and shopping. You will love this place. They do except pets as well. A rarity in B & B;'s.

Room Tip: We had Room 4 which has two twin beds, perfect for that girls weekend.

As one who grew up in the Ocean/Monmouth County area of NJ within a 1/2 hour of the water, going on vacation "to the shore" was an entirely foreign concept to me -- until I started dating a guy from Philly. I had never explored much of the south Jersey Shore area beyond Cape May or a bi-annual outing to Atlantic City, so Avalon and Stone Harbor were new to me. The Sealark was recommended to us because a person in our family knew the owners. There are so many great things to say about the Sealark, I don't know how to order my comments. I would say the best thing about it is the location -- one block from the beach and the main drag of town. The price is great as well -- you can visit slightly off-season, or even until the end of June, and you'll have a much more reasonable rate than some of the motels down the island. I have read the negative reviews about the apartment across the street, and I've never been in it, so I can't comment. I've been to the main B & B twice, and it's clean and comfortable. Everything isn't brand spanking new, but for a good reason! Some of the furniture accent pieces and decorative items (as well as pictures) are antique. Staples like beds are new and clean, and comfortable. The owners are very nice people. They enjoy talking with guests, but are not pushy or overly familiar. They are very genuine, helpful, and know a lot about the area. If you need anything, all you need to do is ask. The Sealark is the perfect place to be based for a weekend or longer at the shore -- each time we've gone, we've taken time for Cape May and Cape May Point, Stone Harbor, and the Ocean City boardwalk. The B & B experience is not for everyone -- some folks want the big hotel or a gazillion amenties, and they don't want to be in a house-like setting. But, if you love the B & B experience, and if you are looking for comfortable, enjoyable accomodations that will TRULY feel like your home at the shore (it is for me), you MUST book here.

Room Tip: We've chosen Room 2 which is a small suite. There is a small room with a couch and TV in one area and the bed, etc. is in the adjacent room. This room has one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. It has a large whirlpool tub. Shower is small but sufficient. The light coming through the windows in the morning is beautiful.

We have been staying at the Sealark Bed and Breakfast for 11 years. The place feels like a second home to our family. It is located one block from the town shops and one block from the beach, boardwalk and playgrounds. The area is very safe and has sidewalks that allowed our children at an early age to adventure out to the candy store, arcade, ice cream shops and library.
Pat and John (the owners of the bed and breakfast) are wonderful people that are like family now. They are the most honest and accommodating people you will have the pleasure to meet. They provide a wonderful breakfast each morning that includes a different cooked item. During the breakfast, this is the opportunity to talk to the other guests and hear about fun things to do in the area. The place has so many returning guests that we have developed friendships with the other guests over the years that make breakfast a fun event each day. During breakfast, the rooms are cleaned, sheets are changed and towels are replaced. What a treat over renting a shore house!
Pat and John are always there to offer any help to make it a wonderful vacation. We normally stay in the apartment style rooms across the street from the bed and breakfast that offer a private deck with a gas grill along with a full kitchen when you want to eat in. The place is pet friendly and our dogs just love it there. There is a grass yard for the kids to play in and puzzles, books and TV for the rainy days (not many of them in Avalon).
If you are looking for a wonderful place to have a family vacation, this is the spot!
