Beach Retreat

Posted Aug 26, 2015
Pros: Clean, comfortable and a great place to relax on the porch.
Cons: N/A
Location: Ocean Grove is a quaint, quiet beach town. It's close to the beach and has a nice variety of eateries and shops.
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful 2 night stay at the Carriage House in Ocean Grove, NJ mid-August. Our host, Phil was a gentleman and our room was clean and comfortable. The Carriage House is only 1 block from the beautiful beach and our house breakfast was delicious. I would recommend the Carriage House to anyone looking for a relaxing stay at the Jersey shore.

Very close to the beach...cozy room

Posted Aug 26, 2015
Pros: They were very nice to us.
Cons: More toiletries in the bathroom.
Location: Location was great. Walking distance to the beautiful Ocean Grove beach.
It was my birthday and I asked my hostess if she would make me her famous stuffed french toast, and she did. That breakfast was out of this world. An herb frittata, the French toast, peaches with marscapone, peppers and tomatoes, orange juice, coffee. I loved every bite.

Room By the Sea Side

Posted Aug 12, 2015
Pros: Everything!!!!
Cons: Later hours for breakfast.
Location: One block from the beach and boardwalk. It is a short walk to town as well as Asbury Park. There are wonderful restaurants close by.
This bed and breakfast was beautiful.....and a block from the beach. This Victorian house was impeccably decorated. Our room was small but adequate. Our hosts Phil and Kathy made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was delicious. Cereal was available, coffee, juice, and there was a wide variety of teas. There were two different quiches as well as a pear tart being offered. The front outside porch was inviting. The prices are reasonable. This is definitely on our list for a return trip.

Pros: We loved the quaintness,the cleanliness and quietness of the hotel. Enjoyed relaxing on the front porch and the view of the ocean.
Location: Location is very nice...close to the beach, close to eating places and stores.
We loved our stay at the Carriage House B & B. I took my 83 yr old Mom and Phil kindly up graded our room to the second floor as the third floor was too much for my Mom. Everyone was very kind, helpful and friendly. Breakfast was delicious and nicely presented.

Quiet location close to lively town

Posted Aug 1, 2015
Pros: The "continental" breakfast (Monday to Friday) is anything but. There was a different, fresh quiche and alternative plate each morning.
Cons: The twin room is a bit cramped for two people.
Location: Despite being a temperance town, Ocean Grove is a ten minute walk from the bars, restaurants and nightlife of Asbury Park.
On first arrival I was much taken by the lovely exterior and charming American Victoriana in the entrance hall. There appears to be only one twin room which is on the small side so be advised to choose your travelling companion carefully! Fortunately there is plenty of room on the front porch, which is open to all guests.

Only good point

Posted Jul 19, 2015
Much too expensive for the dreadfully cramped room with no amenities. The good location can be matched by the other guest houses in the vicinity, which doubtless have adequate size bedrooms.

Close to the beach with to a die for breakfast

Posted May 5, 2015
Pros: We liked decor and comfort level.
Cons: My wife is very picky about mattresses, so she couldn't sleep at night. So maybe if the mattresses could be switched. They do look a bit worn out.
Location: Walk and sit on the beach, rent bicycles and ride along the boardwalk, go eat in numerous restaurants.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House Bed & Breakfast. The hotel has antique furniture and decorations which makes you feel like you are visiting your granny in England.The homemade breakfast was prepared each morning and sooo delicious!

Great location and breakfast

Posted Oct 20, 2014 on Hotels
Phil and Kathi are great hosts. Phil suggested a few places to eat in both Ocean Grove and Asbury Park. Phil and Kathi have been doing this a long time and they made us feel at home. The breakfast was delicious. The Carriage house is in walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, restaurants and shops. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Ocean Grove is a nice town. It was an easy walk to Asbury Park.

Very nice except for Room 6

Posted Oct 20, 2014 on Hotels
Our two day stay was very pleasant. The location is excellent. Only drawback was our room # 6. The double bed is against the wall on one side. The floor is not even so the head of the bed is lower than the feet, which was very uncomfortable. I asked if there were any other rooms for our second night and was told no, although the inn did not seem full.
