The seaside community of Ocean Grove is conveniently located an hour or so from New York, Atlantic City, and Philadelphia and is ideal for a New Jersey Shore beach vacation. Our picturesque town is renowned for its beautiful beach, grand Victorian buildings, and quaint charm.

Ocean Grove was established in 1869 by the Methodist Church as a site for a campground retreat and summer resort. Although this tiny 1-square-mile town emerged from the resort, numerous families continue to come to Ocean Grove to enjoy their traditional summer retreat in the colony of tents, which surround the beautiful Great Auditorium. This remarkable building, with its wonderful acoustics and enormous pipe organ, plays host to musical and theatrical events, both religious and secular, all summer long. Many famous musicians, entertainers, and preachers have appeared there.
Within walking distance of the Inn, is a quaint, tree-lined shopping district, featuring antiques, gift shops, and restaurants, including an “old time” ice cream parlor.

The beautiful beaches are perfect for swimming, collecting shells, or just getting a tan. You can walk for miles on the boardwalk, which is unspoiled by commercial clutter.

     You can take part in a variety of local activities, including deep-sea fishing, Monmouth Park Raceway, golfing, miniature golf, bicycling, and antique-hunting. Six Flags Great Adventure and Atlantic City are not far away.

Our main draw in Ocean Grove, NJ, however, is its peace and serenity, a genuine antidote to the busy lives we all sometimes have. Escape the hustle and bustle of every day life by basking in our tranquil ambiance. We welcome you to enjoy a relaxing seaside holiday with us at The Inn at Ocean Grove where guests are pampered with exquisite decor, gracious hospitality, and comfortable relaxing rooms.
