My husband and I stayed here three weeks before our wedding, but in fact we were celebrating his successful Ph.D. defense! Here's what we loved the most about Island Guest House: 1) It was quiet and peaceful, yet close to essential amenities for a good time (such as the beach, bars, amusement park, etc.) 2) The decor was cozy and...

The inn keepers, Mark and Joanne, were very friendly and always available. The establishment was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were delightful. Very comfortable beds and close to the beach and other attractions. Would stay again.

We had a great visit to LBI, made even better by our accommodations at the Island Guest House. The proprietors were very friendly, but respectful of our privacy and the room was spotless and comfortable. We're looking forward to visiting again.

We stayed in Christina's room on the second floor that came with a private bathroom. The room was perfect for our weekend getaway. Mark and Joanne were very welcoming as they were the year before. The rooms now come with your own beach chairs that has a cooler so you can bring water to the beach with you. The breakfast...

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
