I took my daughter for a quick mid week get away and stayed in the Graciously Green room. Karen extended great hospitality and was more than accommodating with our special dietary needs, and the breakfast was amazing! Everything was wonderful and felt so comfortable. I can't wait to return this fall with my husband.

We stay at Serendipity every year in April. This year we had incredible weather and a lovely weekend. Karen's hospitality was wonderful, as always, and the breakfasts are so good you don't want lunch. We like the larger room on the top floor,but all rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The location of Serendipity is perfect. Easy walk to everything.

We arrived in February (after being preempted by Hurricane Sandra in November). What a delightful place! The room was magnificent - clean with a huge bathroom and a sleep number bed! A TV & DVD player were in the room with a nice selection of movies (and books) in the downstairs parlor. In addition to a coffee station in the...

We have stayed at the Serendipity for years. Karen has made the place so warm and welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the location is fantastic and the breakfasts are out of this world. She accommodates both meat eaters and vegans! We look forward to staying with her again this summer!!

My husband and I have stayed here numerous times because it is such a treat! Karen is very hospitable and has excellent dining and event recommendations. Her breakfasts are delicious and you truly get your money's worth. We just got home from our last stay and I am still salivating over the memory of her homemade gingerbread! Serendipity is in...

I love to have new people book a stay. It gives me an opportunity to show them the hospitality that Serendipity and Ocean City are known for! I especially enjoy my "repeat" guests - people who started here as new guests and have evolved over stays to become friends. It is nice to know that people enjoy staying here and...

This B&B really is our serendipity. We were sent to this small B&B when our original booking was cancelled due to a neighborhood fire and we had no place to stay for the weekend (thank you original B&B for arranging!). The host of Serendipity is so kind, she charged us the price of our original B&B, which was lower than...

We just spent the weekend - 4/27/12 through 4/29/12 here. Warm and friendly, cozy room and living room area. Great snacks and drinks available all day long. Sample breakfast - fresh fruit cup, apple muffin, breakfast frittatta, sausage, french toast. The manager can accommodate dietary restrictions. Very relaxing experience.

Old charm, comfy rooms, porch with rocking chairs, just like Grand Ma's house! Quiet retreat in a busy shore town. Karen's gourmet breakfast is a welcome addition. My home away from home! No glitz & glamour here. That would be Atlantic City!

My wife and I picked up a two night stay here on a deal advertised on LivingSocial. We weren't sure what to expect, but any concerns were put to rest and all our expectations and hopes surpassed upon our arrival. The rooms are very clean, wonderfully well organized and just plain comfy, but what shines about Serendipity is the array...
