“LBI paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

My husband and I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful time. Bette and Merle were fantastic hosts and the breakfasts were nothing short of amazing! It's close to the beach and restaurants. We stayed in the Opulent Room and it was beautiful. We can't wait to go back!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights after our wedding. We only had one full day at the place, and I wish it had been longer. It was the perfect place to relax after our wedding. We stayed in the Dome Room, which had a fantastic view of the ocean. The bathroom was terrific, it had an old style stand-alone bathtub that was also a jacuzzi, and a separate shower with jets. Bette and Merle were fantastic, made us feel at home, and gave us great restaurant recommendations. Breakfast food was terrific, and I personally enjoyed the evening chocolate chip cookies. It was a little cold to swim, but my wife and I enjoyed walking on the beach, and taking the complimentary bicycles out through the town. I would love to come back when the weather gets warmer and we can go swimming.

My girlfriend and I spent the entire Memorial Day Weekend (Friday - Monday) at the Williams Cottage Inn and to describe the experience as anything other than fantastic would not do it justice. It had a ton of amenities and the breakfast was 1st class. A great weekend and we plan on going back as soon as we can.

Winding up another stay at the WCI, we can do no more than keep up its 5-star rating, well-deserved. Here for 5 days, it rained during all of them, making the beach hit-or-miss. We had to buy sweatshirts to deal with the chill, but no matter. Both of us are writing, and the porch and ocean air were sublime components to get things done without the inevitable distraction of padding around the house. It was our second stint in the Asian Room, with its small ocean view but clear sound of the waves to fall asleep by. Breakfasts were delicious masterpieces of culinary art and taste. Ours were bound by the religious necessity of Weight Watchers, but had the look of the more massive fare surrounding us. (We thought of ourselves like of our dog doing his Pavlov imitation.) if you're a couple in love - 41 years for us - the WCI is a place to enjoy, probably so if you only get along. We are certainly not Dash and Lillian, but the ambience surely put us in the right mood.

I believe that a house is a structure and a home is the people. The house at Williams Cottage Inn is amazing, we had the chance to peek in each room and they were all beautiful. We stayed in the Garden Room it was just wonderful. The food was marvelous, the views unreal, but it was the people that made the experience second to none. Bette and Merle made us feel like this remarkable house was our home away from home for the weekend. If you ever have the chance to see this house take it, but if you have the chance to meet these people I am sure you will walk away with friends in New Haven,LBI, NJ as we have.
