The Carisbrooke Inn

One- or Two-Night Stay for Two with a Bottle of Wine at The Carisbrooke Inn in New Jersey

Give as a Gift

Bed and Breakfast Steps from Atlantic Ocean

Happy hour on the ocean-view front deck of The Carisbrooke Inn is a fittingly festive occasion. Revelers chat and laugh over snacks and drinks, pausing occasionally to take in views of the Atlantic Ocean just 300 feet away. One woman from Philadelphia says she's a regular, dropping by "every other weekend, at least." She smiles as she explains why: "This place is a gift."

The inn offers the late-afternoon refreshments year-round. On days when it's too chilly to stand out on the deck, they're served in front of a cozy fireplace. Further evidence of The Carisbrooke's attention to detail can be found in its helpful concierge services—a boon for those seeking show tickets or dinner reservations in nearby Atlantic City—as well as a daily country breakfast made of fresh fruit, homemade breads, and fresh blueberry pancakes.

The inn's elegant interior features high ceilings, ornate moldings, and period furniture. A palette of warm colors graces the spacious guest rooms, and bathrooms are outfitted with jetted tubs and steam showers. The inn even has a piano and a guitar to facilitate sing-alongs or the breeding of keytars.

Ventnor City, New Jersey: Historical Seaside Hamlet Near Atlantic City Bustle

The Carisbrooke Inn is located in Ventnor City, minutes away from Atlantic City. The town reportedly derives its name from a seaside resort on the Isle of Wight in the English Channel. Today, Ventnor City remains a small, old-fashioned beach community filled with quaint shops and restaurants, most of which lie within walking distance of the inn. The area provides a quiet alternative to the hustle and bustle of Atlantic City, but it's still close enough to enjoy all that the Monopoly city has to offer. A good place to start, of course, is the boardwalk, a legendary 6-mile pleasure promenade lined with glitzy casinos, restaurants, and hucksters trying to unload their useless Baltic Avenue holdings.
