The Williams Cottage Inn sets the standard for our vacation accommodations! We have visited the Inn numerous times over the recent years, and it has become a summer/ fall tradition for my husband and me. The Inn is beautiful, comfortable and very well maintained. Breakfasts are exceptional! They supply you with just about everything...beach towels, coolers for the beach, bikes,...

The inn is lovely and incredibly clean and comfortable, and conveniently located right across the street from the beach. What really makes this place special are...

Best wraparound porch ever! With all the guest bedrooms, each having a private bath, my extended family, kids and all, stayed at this fabulous house together this past weekend. The beautiful beach was only a few steps away and we basically spent the rest of our time on the front porch. There's a great market (Pearl Street Market) a couple...

A totally amazing experience for our first visit with Bette and Merle. The inn is gorgeous and our room was perfect. Breakfast was outstanding and we truly enjoyed chatting with Bette and Merle who genuinely love being innkeepers. They even recommended the best places to dine nearby. We will certainly be back for more of this beyond 5-star experience!

Wonderful three days on Long Beach Island at this inn. The room was perfect, our hosts were lovely and you can't beat the great location across from the Beach! We took advantage of the bicycles each day for a beautiful ride. Definitely the right choice for a short stay on this island
