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...

A diamond in the Springlake setting, Nancy and Denis have made the Ocean House more than a home away from home. They have created a warm and friendly atmosphere where one can relax and enjoy what's truly important - family and friends. One of the distinctive characteristics of the Ocean House is the large wrap-around porch. The porch seems to...

Do you have in your mind a vision of the "perfect" vacation get away? I know mine; the seashore, minus the rides, crowds ad bars asociated with "Jersey Shore" - someplace romantic without being pretentious - "period" architecture that is liveable, not a museum (or,worse, manufactured) - amenities that matter; cleanliness, friendliness, generosity, and hospitality. Well, I almost hesitate to...

We stayed here last weekend for a wedding in the area, and loved it! My husband and I came in on a redeye to Newark and since our room was available, the owners let us get into it right away (at 8:30 am when we arrived) to sleep for no additional charge. We also were saying good-bye to family and...

I have stayed at the Ocean House a number of times and it continues to be the best of the best when it comes to EXACTLY what the perfect seaside Bed & Breakfast is supposed to be. It is the quintessential Victorian B&B with excellent comfortable rooms (each with it's own bathroom) inclusive of telephones and new flat screen TVs....

After much searching for a place to book out of town family and friends for my son's 9/10/11 wedding- we found the Ocean House.

From the morning breakfast - special attention and a great room for...

This charming small hotel has been our "home away from home". The very large wrap-around porch is where we enjoy our coffee in the am and wine in the pm.The public spaces. i.e., library, living room and dining room are decorated right out of a high end magazine. The very filling home made breakfast holds us over until dinner. In...

As you've chosen Spring Lake for your vacation you'll have a wonderful time, and this is a very good choice for your accomodations. My favorite feature is the wrap-around porch with comfortable seating in many groupings (always a spot to relax even when the house is full) -- perfect for enjoying the hearty breakfast al fresco, to unwind in the...

Our recent stay at the ocean house was mostly good but not exceptional. We had been warned that a wedding would be in progress and as promised the loud music ceased around 10pm. However the noisy cleanup including vacuuming after the wedding was an annoyance as I tried to sleep. The premium king room was lovely with a large bath...

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
