Hello Warrensoitgoes! (What a great pseudonym!) Glad we could make you feel welcome and relaxed. Calm, low-keyed easy-going is what we try to accomplish. Sounds as if it worked for you. Hope to see you again next time LBI is in your plans.

It's been a few years since I reviewed Minerva's, and I thought it fitting to update my opinion just to reiterate that Minerva's continues to provide a wonderful B&B experience on LBI. It's affordable, clean, well situated, and as other reviewers have attested, evokes the...More

It's loyal families like yours that make it fun to do what we try to do here: provide a low-keyed and elegant-but-affordable vacation for folks who don't own railroads! Glad you signed up for next year, so you can get that room that is your...More
