Island Heights, NJ 08732
The Cottage on the River is a completely restored 1920's Cottage Style Bed and Breakfast, located on a bluff, overlooking the Toms River. The ocean beaches, Island Beach State Park, Seaside Heights and Point Pleasant Beach boardwalks are nearby.
We are open year round and located just over an hour away from Atlantic City, Manhattan and Philadelphia. Island Heights is home for the Ocean County Artist Guild, Nelson's Marina Sailing School, Island Heights Yacht Club and more than 100 restored Victorian homes.
It is ideal for leisurely walks and biking. Fishing and crabbing are just a step away. After completing an addition in February 2007, the Cottage now offers four rooms. Our newest is the Riverview Suite with private entrance, king size euro plush bed, private balcony with magnificent view of the river, multi jetted marble walk-in shower, fireplace, sitting area, refrigerator and TV, DVD, VCR.
The Wicker, Garden and Marina rooms were completely renovated in 2002 and boost private baths, LCD TV and individually remote controlled air conditioning. All rooms have views of the river and majestic oak and pine trees.
The sunsets are magnificent and the colors in the Autumn are spectacular! Breakfast will be served on the screened porch, which overlooks the river, country garden and fish pond. When you return from your day of activities enjoy a magnificent sunset or a sailing regatta while relaxing on our large and comfortable deck.
