What a wonderful place to stay. The owners made us feel so comfortable like it was our own house. The breakfast was awesome and the location is perfect. We were near the beach and all the shopping and restaurants. I highly recommend staying here when visiting LBI

My daughter had given us a gift certificate several years ago for a one night stay at this B&B. Unfortunately hurricane "Sandie" postponed our trip until my recent birthday. We stayed three nights and had just a wonderful time. Joanne and Mark are very accommodating hosts, breakfasts were great, and our room although small, was very cozy and comfortable. We'll...

We stayed 2 nights for a wedding in Beach Haven. Mark and Joanne couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Our room was very quaint and pretty and clean. It did not, however, have a closet or hooks for hanging clothes. This was inconvenient since we had dress clothes for the wedding. The breakfasts were delicious and the breakfast room...

We stayed in the B1-B2 suite (Michael's room and the Stained glass room that has a connecting door to the rooms) -2nd floor right at the top of the stairs. Those rooms are on the front of the house. We found Michael's room to...

We stayed at Island Guest House for a wedding in LBI. Wonderful experience! Joanne and Mark were very accommodating. The house is wonderful and has rooms for all preferences. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Located in a great part of the island close to shops and things to do. We are looking forward to coming back one day!

Mark and Joanne are always warm, friendly and willing to help with recommendations and information on what's happening on the island. My mom and I had a wonderful stay and enjoyed every breakfast and afternoon tea. Joanne has the best breakfast casseroles, pumpkin bread, and cupcakes ever! Glad to be a VIP and never leave without getting hugs from them.

For years, my grandmother and I have been traveling to Beach Haven for our vacation in the summer. It had been 10 years since our last trip, and our normal place was taken over by new people, so we branched out & tried something new. We both wished that we would have done this switch years ago! Mark & Joanne...

Thank you Mark & Joanne for making our stay in LBI an enjoyable one.

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
