I have been to the Bath Ave Guest House a number of times over the years. I try to get to the shore in September, after the crowds have gone and it is quieter. I consider it a home away from home. It is quiet, comfortable and immaculately clean. Jim, the owner does a wonderful breakfast and is always welcoming...

We have always been very happy here. The rooms are CLEAN, cute and affordable. Great front porches to have a cup of coffee or glass a wine. People have always be thoughtful and friendly. The location is close to Asbury and we have never had trouble with parking (weekdays). Just a few blocks from the beach. The breakfast is terrific....

I have stayed at the Bath Avenue House several times over the past decade. The owner Jim is absolutely wonderful. He loves this place and it really shows. The room was immaculate. The toilet and shower areas were immaculate. Yes, the toilet and shower are down the hall, but that's to be expected here. If that's not what you want,...

Just spent weekend as part of a woman's retreat. Jim as Host and Michael as Manager are incredible! Had a double room on third floor, with AC, sink. Shared indoor & outdoor showers with shampoo etc. provided. Shared water closets but all extremely clean thanks to Lindsey. 1 block to beach and Asbury boardwalk. My favorite YEAR ROUND getaway.

Wow! Just enjoyed a wonderful (but quick!) 2 day get-away at the Bath Avenue House. The hosts & staff are so friendly and accommodating that you can't help feeling right at home. The house is beautiful & the breakfast is fresh and delicious. Don't forget to enjoy the outdoor showers. Will definitely return!

Weekend retreat at the Bath Avenue house. We were a group of 15 women (we rented the entire house) Each room is unique with a sink and air conditioner in every room. Jim is an incredible host serving delicious breakfasts and, for our weekend , dinners. 1 block to the ocean. The town is so quaint and the people so...

Our family stayed here for two nights to be close to the beach. It was one of the more affordable guest houses I could find online that was within walking distance from the beach. Parking was tough. We weren't allowed to keep our cooler in the room. The outside shower door wouldn't stay closed so I had to hold it...

Completely wonderful place. It's a throwback to the late 19th century: small room with no t.v. or telephone, flowered carpeting and bedspreads, lace curtains, parlor w. a piano. But there is effective air-conditioning. Nice front- and second-story porches. Simple, few amenities, very conducive to a peaceful stay at the seashore. Host Jim is energetic, helpful, good-humored. Perfect location near the...

A friend and I recently spent a lovely weekend at Bath Avenue Guest House in beautiful Ocean Grove, NJ. Jim was a wonderful host - allowing us to check in early on Friday, so that we could enjoy the whole afternoon at the beach. And, Ocean Grove really does have a fantastic beach! You can rent boogie boards and beach...
