We did not know what to expect when we chose this B&B for our Veterans Day adventure, but we were very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful surroundings and excellent staff. We knew that it would not be fair to compare November with a summertime stay, but we loved the peace and quiet in the neighborhood. The staff was very helpful...

The Ocean House is a picturesque B&B in the heart of Spring Lake, and my stay there was nothing less than perfect. The Kaloostians are an incredible family who really care about your experience, and go above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate your needs. Nancy, Dennis and Jared truly put together a weekend you'll never forget, and...

We recently were treated to a night at The Ocean House for Veteran's Day and arrived in Spring Lake just before sundown but unfortunately, too late to see the town as almost all of the shops had closed except for 2 of them. The location was great, a block from the beach, though it was too cold and dark to...

We stayed at the Ocean House in early November and it was so peaceful and accommodating. The hosts are gracious, welcoming and helpful - very much a group of locals and therefore very well-informed with good ideas. The Ocean House is big enough to feel more like a hotel than a B&B but small enough to have a casual, friendly...

Delightful old building filled with interesting pieces and history in living quarters on main level. Dining room is fresh and inviting with breakfasts of fresh fruits, breads, built around the variety from frittatas to pancakes, bread pudding to apple cobbler and on and on. The big white porch surrounding two sides of the structure is an absolute perfect place to...

My husband and I attended my 50th High School reunion along with many classmates from as far away as California. The large porch that hugs the outside of the building is the first thing that provides an impression of the beautiful facility that lies within. The entry opens to a delightful parlor on the right and a library on the...

Innkeepers Nancy and Dennis along with the rest of the staff make this b&b a super place for r&r! Rooms were cozy, breakfast good and they gave great tips for places to visit and directions to get there! Loved being there off-season! Would definitely go back! Susan L

I attended a bridal shower at The Ocean House this past summer and I can't say enough good things about it. First, it was the 2nd shower I attended that day and it was by far the better one! The Ocean House is a block from the beach and has a huge wrap around porch that the shower started out...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is our quest and desire to preserve and enhance the magic that is, The Ocean House. Just one short block from the beach and an enjoyable walk along the lake to Spring Lake's shopping district. Enjoy a run on the Spring Lake boardwalk or bike about the town to view the majestic homes and breath taking landscapes. If relaxation is your desire, there is no finer porch to read that book you haven't had a chance to get to, or have that glass of wine with your spouse before enjoying one of the many fine restaurants in our area. We are happy to help with reservations and any other travel needs you may have? ... more   less
