The actual B&B is super cute and nice. A perfect location...one block or so from the beach. great porch....cute rooms (reminds me of my grandmother's house from like 20 years ago though) but still cute!
(My husband and I chose this place bcs our favorite B&B was sold out, and one of the reasons we picked ocean house was bcs they had bikes...which we absolutely love having in spring lake)
The ONLY problem we had was with the owner. He informed us one morning that we can't take the bikes out once it's dark due to insurance reasons (we never had that problem anywhere else) but we were like, OK. So later that day after the beach we went out to get a bike, but they were all chained up. It was 630p. I had to ask the girl inside to let us have the bikes, and she agreed. As we were about to ride away...the owner comes out SCREAMING "hello!! hello!!" and we were like, what? and he was like "I told you that you can't have the bikes out at night" and we said " hello it's 630...it gets dark at 830...we'll have them back" and he continued to go on AGAIN and lecture us about having the bikes back. I was SO annoyed with him.
I felt like a little kid, like who does he think he's talking to?
A similar incident happened the next day but I don't need to go into detail. You get my point. He also scolded us for coming in the house with too much sand on our feet. He treated us like kids. I would never go back...just based solely on his attitude.
