The Carriage House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 19 Ocean Grove B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Just returned from an overnight stay at this bed and breakfast. It was exactly what we needed to renew and refresh ourselves. It was clean, comfortable, and felt like home. The breakfast was wonderful and we will definitely consider returning.

Room Tip: We were in room 3 which was very nice...warm fireplace. However, if you are looking for a view the...

Ocean Grove, NJ, is a Landmark community where buildings must conform to maintaining Victorian style and appearance. In this setting, the Carriage House is an Award-winning inn that feels and looks like a dollhouse from the era.
However, the B&B offers comfort, cleanliness, convenience and meals that brush aside any of the age's shortcomings.
This is a dazzling place to rest, a block and change from the beach, 2 blocks from Main Ave. shops and restaurants and only short walk from boardwalk amenities.
The hosts are wonderful, friendly and attentive. And while keeping the feel of the late 19th Century, they also offer Premium Cable, free wi-fi and all the latest conveniences.
Details will vary room to room, meal to meal, but the experience is a constant - and a thorough delight.

Room Tip: All rooms are one or two flights up from the main floor, by stairs. If managing a climb is a proble...

My wife and I stayed here recently, and we thought it was really great. The owners, Kathi and Phil, are both very nice and helpful. Breakfast was delicious--a different quiche each day, and some other tasty options, including some fantastic croissants. We stayed in room 8, which has a queen sized bed, a small sitting area, fireplace, and private bathroom. The TV had pretty much all the premium cable channels--HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, etc.--so we were able to catch up on all the Dexter episodes on Showtime that we've been missing up in NYC due to the Time Warner/CBS dispute.

The Carriage House is two blocks from the beach, and they have beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, and towels that can be borrowed for the day. They also sell reduced price beach passes for $5 instead of the $8 that you pay at the beach. A very quiet, relaxing place for a vacation.

Room Tip: Room 8 doesn't have access to the balcony, and it's on the third floor, but it's a decen...

really nice place, rooms are a little small, but most of these b n b's have small rooms, very quaint and elegant though. owners were very attentive, and offered themselves for anything, badges, chairs, coffee, suggestions to restaurants - whatever. breakfasts were good, keishes (which i don't like,) but lacking the basics - toast, hard rolls, scrambled eggs, bagels and butter/cream cheese. coffee should have been a little stronger or darker. overall, not bad, one block from beach. very reasonably priced.

Room Tip: double room facing the ocean side is best.

We were guests at the Carriage House from 7/15 to 7/18. The experience exceeded our expectations. Kathi and Phil are gracious hosts. Phil's dining recommendations were excellent. Breakfast at the Inn was superb: quiches, homemade croissants, blintzes...The Inn is clean and well kept. Beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels are conveniently provided. We will make the trip from Kansas again!

Perhaps even better the second time around. Our two night escape to the beach couldn't have been much better. Located just a half city block from the wide beach and a block from Main Street and it's shops and cafes. Also, a short walk to Asbury Park's boardwalk and restaurants.

The innkeepers are accommodating and friendly. The rooms are pretty typical B&B, each one slightly different, with very limited storage for clothing, but tastefully decorated and with new tvs. Our second floor room also had a door to a sitting porch, which was nice for relaxing with a book .For me, the highlight is the breakfast. I don't think I've ever had two gourmet breakfasts that would have me returning because of the food.

Room Tip: A room with access to the upstairs porch is nice.
