Had a wonderfully relaxing time. Very welcoming and comfortable stay. Breakfast is clearly made with love and beyond good. Bette and Merle take pride in the property and all it has to offer. Both are a wealth of knowledge on the area and can make excellent recommendations and reservations for you. Take advantage of open local restaurants, the Engleside Inn,...

The Williams Cottage Inn is in a quiet spot in Beach Haven. The Inn itself has a beautiful wrap around deck where you can sit, relax and watch people ride by on their bikes while having a glass of wine. The beach entrance is directly across the street. The Opulent room is an excellent choice. It was exquisite with an...

When it came to celebrating my husbands birthday, we knew exactly where to go. This was our fourth visit to Williams Cottage Inn, and certainly won't be our last. This Victorian was beautifully restored, is a half a block from the ocean, and is run by the best possible innkeepers, Bette and Merle. This place is something special, and a...

The Innkeepers, Bette and Merle Van Liere, are warm and friendly and go out of their way to make guest comfortable. I originally thought I made a reservation for 2 nights for a wedding and found out that it never went through when I arrived as they had no reservation for me. It was not their fault, it was mine!...

Beautiful bed and breakfast recently restored! This is in a great location where you can walk to restaurants or just a walk a few steps to the beach. The inn has an array of rooms to choose from. All rooms are meticulously decorated and very clean. I agree with another reader that the bed linens seemed a bit worn, The...

This was our first visit to Wlliams Cottage, we stayed for 5 nights in the Blue Room; and as mentioned previously, this property has many perks. In my opinion, hotel/motel choices on LBI are very limited, but Williams Cottage made our stay enjoyable. It's not a place for a family getaway with young children, it's geared towards couples and adults...

Beautiful, luxurious bed and breakfast! We stayed here on our wedding night. The Dome Room was very special, the décor was perfect for pictures of me before the wedding. The hosts are wonderful people and make an amazing breakfast too! This B & B is located across from the ocean with glorious views. My husband and I enjoyed our stay!

My husband and I stayed at the Williams Cottage Inn for several days in July. The historic and beautifully restored Victorian-style building is situated on a quiet street mere steps from the wonderful beach (which itself had also undergone a very recent and dramatic restoration). It is also within walking distance of restaurants and shops in the heart of Beach...
