We had a quiet weekend escape at Minervas. The B & B has a great set-up - Emma, the owner converted and renovated the what was an office space into the B & B. Minerva's is spot on clean and each room is very private, none of the rooms share common walls. Emma has good knowledge of Long Beach Island...

Just had a lovely, serene weekend at Minerva's and can't wait to go back. The room was great, with a lovely balcony facing the bay. Breakfasts were awesome, especially the waffles. Emma was the most wonderful host, and makes you feel so welcome. Fabulous b&b!

Our stay at Minerva's, though brief, introduced us to the wonderful LBI. Emma, the hostess, is charming and gracious. We only wished we could have stayed longer and look forward to our next trip to the island.

The room was very clean, the bed comfortable. There was wifi and a kitchenette... Much more than I expected. We loved the breakfast... a lovely...

Minerva's by the Sea B&B Minerva's is my go-to get away place. After experiencing the sterility of a hotel room, I found the friendliness and comfort of Minerva's a perfect fit. I have never been a bed and breakfast person but Minerva's is like staying at the beautiful home of a friend. It is contemporary and immaculate. There are bikes,...

We loved our long weekend stay at Minerva's by the Sea. The mermaid room has a comfortable king bed and a nice balcony overlooking the bay. Emma is a thoughtful host, providing stimulating conversations and her breakfasts each morning were amazing. There were several good restaurants and places to explore within walking and biking distance. A great place for winter...

My weekend at Minerva's was a treat. Our room was tidy and comfortable, and every little detail was well considered. I enjoyed a book from the library and appreciated all of the care Emma took to make us comfortable. Emma's food is delicious! I came home inspired by her innovative recipes, and have her to thank for the vegetarian French...
