“A great getaway”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We grew up in PA and spent many happy hours at the shore. After we moved to Texas we still returned east for visits and have wonderful memories of our stays at the Inn. Was it the Inn keepers who made us feel like family, was it the food, was it the walk on the board walk, was it enjoying spending time on the porch that kept bringing us back? Roll them all together and you have one of the best places to go for a relaxing and enjoyable getaway.

The owners, Tom and Rosemarie, were in Ireland during part of our stay, but their staff were great and made sure our needs were met. We loved the proximity to the beach and Silver Lake! I grew up in Belmar, and was happy to stay in my home town! Tom and Rosemarie returned a few days before we left, and were lovely to chat with. His breakfasts are great, and we were happy to have had the experience! Thank you!!

My extended family met at the Inn at the Shore for my parents' 45th wedding anniversary. Tom and Rosemary helped us coordinate catering and party planning in addition to providing us with a beautiful space for us to celebrate. The accommodations were comfortable and the breakfasts were wonderful! The Inn had a perfect location, close to the beach and great restaurants. We can't wait to go back!

I had the pleasure of spending a week at the Inn at the Shore in Belmar. I loved having my window open at night and being able to hear the sounds of the ocean! The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and Tom and Rosemary Volker are outstanding inn-keepers! Since I was solo they introduced me to other guests who I joined for an amazing seafood dinner on the Shark River. The short walk to the beach and a stroll on the jetty was nothing short of amazing!

I'll be back with my sister in 2013!!

Recently we stayed at the Inn at the Shore. What a wonderful experience! We felt that we were visiting two friends, with Tom and Rosemary. From the moment that we arrived we felt welcome and they were both so helpful during our stay. They provided us with great recommendations of restaurants and things to do in the area. Overall the inn had such a feeling of being at home with plenty of cozy places in the common areas and the wonderful wrap around porch to lounge. We absolutely loved the porch as it was a perfect place to relax and read after being on the beach during the day. Our room was spacious and immaculate for our much needed rest. Breakfast in the morning was perfect the homemade granola and yogurt was a perfect way to start our day. Other things that were worth noting:

- Location: Two blocks from the beach
- The Porch and side patio to relax outside
- A guest pantry with a fridge (great for leftovers and keeping beverages chilled)


We can't wait to go back and spend more time at the Inn at the Shore.

I’m not one for wallpapered B&Bs. But then my boyfriend surprised me with a trip to the Inn at the Shore in Belmar. He spent his summers growing up going to Belmar and he wanted to share the place with me. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the “Jersey Shore.” And the accommodations. The innkeeper, Tom, is a total sweetheart. He even picked us up from the train station during a monsoon. The service overall was outstanding -- we arrived with an ice bucket ready for our Perrier Jouet champy. The inn is your typical kitschy bed and breakfast, but the small touches were lovely. Obsessed with the epic board game and puzzle collection as well as VHS options (Air Force One!), which turned out to be a blessing during the unexpected rain that had befallen us. We stayed in the Courtney Rose room, which came with a roomy clawfoot tub (couples take note?) and cozy-yet-oversized monogramed robes for post-bath relaxation. Hint: a breakfast of blueberries, granola and yogurt in a bubble bath is possibly the best way to begin a Saturday.

Room Tip: Courtney Rose room has a clawfoot tub.

This was our first experience at a bed and breakfast. We had a wonderful stay at the Inn at the Shore in Belmar. The Inn is just brimming with personality, very clean and comfortable. Location is excellent, close to beach and restaurants.The hosts Tom and Rosemary are the nicest people and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Would definately recommend. 5 star rating.
