Arrived on Friday afternoon and was met by Marty and Joyce, the minute you walk in you feel immediately relaxed; soft music plays in the background, refreshments were offered before we even checked in and you almost feel like your being welcomed into the home as a close friend or family member. Marty quickly checked us in and helped bring our luggage to the room, everything was effortless.
Food was absolutely amazing, everything was homemade and delicious. We had a fresh herb quiche topped with bacon and skewered roasted peppers from the garden the first morning and cinnamon banana waffles with sausage and apple skewers the second morning.
The location is great, 2 blocks from the beach/boardwalk and 4 blocks from Main street both are very walk-able distances. If we ever find ourselves back in Belmar we will be staying at the Saltwater Inn again.
Tips for Belmar:
Bring any wine you want to drink with you the liquor stores were really over priced.
There is a coffee place "The Perfect Perk Cafe" about 1.5 miles north on Main st that has good coffee and they are open late (for those of you that drink coffee after 3pm...). Otherwise your other option is Dunkin (yuk!) and all the other local coffee shops close early.
Last one is there is a Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant called Kaya's Kitchen on Main st (Main and 10th just 4 blocks from Saltwater Inn) that was a nice surprise for us, we wanted something a bit lighter and on the healthier side, this place has a good variety of food and is reasonably priced (depending what you have). Sometimes you just don't want a burger,tacos or pizza ya know.
