    Just what we needed

    The Ocean House provided the perfect experience for our out of town guests. The location and value were exactly what we were looking for. Aside from the convenience of the location, including a quick walk into town and just a block up from the beach, the big front porch made the perfect place for our guests to relax the night before and day of our wedding. One of the owners Colleen was extremely accommodating and helpful throughout the whole process.

    THE OCEAN HOUSE: 15/10!!! #amazing

    The owners, the Kaloostian's, made our experience! They attended to our every want and need, made delicious breakfasts and were so helpful when last minute wedding emergencies arose (you know they always do). I would probably have been much more stressed out if it weren't for their attention and hospitality! Plus, my wedding party and guests loved their rooms, the coziness of the entire hotel and proximity to the beach and great shopping. I can't wait to come back!

    Perfect Bridal Shower Location. Perfect B&B.

    My bridal shower was held here and it was the most perfect setting. Right in the heart of beautiful Spring Lake in an iconic Bed & Breakfast with a massive and welcoming front porch. The owners of the establishment (Jared and Colleen) were beyond responsive while my mother was planning the event. They helped her to coordinate the menu based on the number of guests, various dietary restrictions and staffed the perfect number of people to serve our guests. I would 100% recommend having an event here and would even like to stay at the Ocean House during the Summer or Fall to enjoy what the area has to offer and to relax on the front porch with a glass of wine and ocean breeze. Did I mention you can walk to the beach?! Take me back.
