Lovely inn, close to the beach--the amenities are a plus - sunny dining room for breakfast, beach chairs in the rooms, beach badges, welcome guest bags, bikes to use. Innkeepers Joanne and Mark are very welcoming and accomodating. Breakfast is a buffet with home-baked goodies and quiches. While rooms are a bit small, the location and charm of this place...

The staff are very friendly and amenities included are a big plus. They include beach badges, bike rentals, and beach chairs to use. Location is a few steps to the beach and other attractions. There are a lot of restaurant options within walking distance.

Our family had a very memorable week at the Island Guest house in June for a wonderful week at LBI! The facility was perfect for us! It is close to the beautiful beach, grocery store, restaurants and Bay Village. There is plenty of room to spread out on the patio, great gathering place. We spent time there playing cards, etc.....

It is so gratifying to us when we have guests who enjoyed themselves enough to come back every year. We are doing more and more "same time next year" reservations.

Based on the photos are reviews we saw online, we were excited to stay at the Island Guest House. Unfortunately, our experience was far from pleasant. The bed&breakfast was outdated. The mattresses were terrible.. we had to change rooms at one point to sleep.. the spring was almost coming out of the mattress. For the price, we expected much nicer...

Thank you so much for sharing that. After last season ended we started a massive face lift, beginning with a fresh coat of paint on the outside. Interior rooms received new carpeting, fresh paint, flat screen tv’s in many rooms, and the rooms are outfitted with brand new Thermopedic mattresses to make sure guests have the best sleeping experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Island Guest House has been Voted the Best Bed & Breakfast on Long Beach Island. It is a turn-of-the-century historic Inn, located oceanside in the heart of Beach Haven, New Jersey. You can walk to everything. The owners, Mark and Joanne, work hard to make you comfortable, and provide the lovely setting, ambience, and character that a 100 year old plus Inn affords, updated with modern amenities like WIFI, flat screen TV, A/C, etc. Some rooms have private decks, his/hers double size shower. Our bicycle-for-two is fun and lightweight beach chairs, boogie boards and outside enclosed shower to rinse off are convenient. Taste homemade breakfast and afternoon refreshments like cakes and cookies from family recipies, and iced tea or lemonade to quench your thirst after the beach. Enjoy coffee 24 hours, and chat with the Innkeepers about things to do in the area. Come and experience the restfulness of our Bed and Breakfast Inn! Couples can get away, and there is an area for well behaved children. We also have a cottage with gas fireplace and bathtub with jacuzzi jets that sleeps 4, and accepts dogs of a not-too-large, well behaved nature. Families and friends can find accommodations for up to 10 in their party. Our Sea Glass room is new, holds 36, and has a large flat screen TV for movie night or a special game or event. Our garden has 10 umbrella tables and over 300 blooms, has a lighted patio and candles in the evening. With lights shinging through the many stained glass windows in the Inn, it is a perfect place to gather and chat, or be secluded together any time. Our cafe kitchen with its large island is a favorite place for guests to feel welcome to come and perch and chat with the Innkeeper over a cup of coffee or treat, or watch us prepare goodies. You can even get a recipe or help! We try to provide assistance without hovering, being sensitive to your needs to relax, and get information when you need it by always being available. We carry our phone with us always even at night when we retire. Throughout our stay, we only ask that if you have any questions or needs, to let us know, because we cannot help you if you wait untill checkout. ... more   less
