Historical Traveler Reviews The Bentley Inn Bay Head
A Great Getaway
The Bentley Inn is a beautiful and cozy Bed and Breakfast a short walk from the surf of the Atlantic Ocean. Innkeeper, Glenn Kithcart, has thought of everything to make a stay at the Bentley comfortable and fulfilling. The inn is in beautiful condition, no doubt thanks to Glenn's attention, and every bedroom is tastefully appointed.
Warm and Cozy B & B
The Bentley Inn is a great B & B to stay at the Jersey Shore. Not only are the rooms warm & cozy, but the Innkeeper makes your stay welcome. Glenn is very accommodating and gives you choices for breakfast, where you are bound to find something to your liking. His breakfast cakes are great! The staff is friendly as well. Make sure you check out the Bentley Inn on your next trip to the Jersey Shore for a warm & cozy B & B.
Warm Inviting Seaside Respite
The Bentley Inn is the kind of place you can call your home away from home. Our room was bright and charming and quiet and peaceful; as well as nicely decorated. The Bentley is one block from the ocean,
a 2 minute walk. Breakfasts are great, and the hospitality is warm and constant. It is truely an oasis where you can have quality time away from the daily grind.
A Lovely Stay
Our stay at the Bentley Inn was just lovely. The Inn was true to our expectations for a classic "Jersey Shore" old style Inn. The breakfast fare was superb and satisfying. The Town of Bay Head is a classic in itself. The friendly owner took the time to get to know us and offer every assistance.
Delightful Anniversary at the Bentley Inn
"What a delightful anniversary weekend we had puttering around Bay Head. The Bentley Inn with its freshly decorated, spotless rooms is just charming-great location, beach chairs, bicycles and attractive, yummy, home cooked breakfast. Although we were newcomers, we immediately felt like old familiar guests of innkeeper Glen. Register early...get the room with the ocean view."

HOME AWAY FROM HOME
I have been coming down to the jersey shore for summer, spring, and fall getaways for about 10 years, and have stayed in hotels big (e.g., the Warren) and small in the area, as well as several summer shares and several other b&b's in Bay Head. I discovered Glenn & Janet's Bentley Inn about five years ago through a referall of another innkeeper in the area who was full at the time, and have never gone anywhere else. It is the perfect retreat for either a romantic getaway weekend of a family weekend or summer week with the kids. Rates are reasonable, lavish breakfast included, beach badges, chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, bikes, cable/video in rooms, a quiet upstairs porch & first-floor deck, a block from beach & near bay head & pt. pleasant attractions. Open year-round; try coming down for a quiet weekend in the spring or fall. year-round activities in Bay Head. Glenn adds a special personal touch to guests as the penultimate innkeeper -- personable, friendly, accessible, dedicated. He wears several different hats as innkeeper (not the least of which is chef -- try his special breakfast cakes & pastries & his signature oatmeal).
I will be coming back to this quaint, peaceful place for years to come.
Charming, Immaculate and Great Breakfasts
The Bentley Inn has all the wonderful ingredients that make it a hit on the Bed & Breakfast scene. It's very well maintained, charming, no pilling on the couches here and Glen makes the BEST homemade breakfast cakes on this continent! It's just a stone's throw to the beach. The amenities should stop with the high tech beach chairs but they don't. Glen provides beach towels, badges, bikes and more for the enjoyment of his guests. The attention to all the little details add up to a BIG HOORAY from this picky traveler! Hot coffee is available all day as well as a variety of herbal teas, cold water for those steamy summer days and sometimes, his famous breakfast cake is out for snacking. The upstairs wrap around porch is a wonderful place to have lunch or evening cocktails. Bring your empty cooler - he supplies the ice! Stop at the local butcher down the street and pick up some wonderful cheeses, crackers, grapes, meats and wine and your al fresco dining is simply wonderful. 4 stars for The Bentley Inn. Tell them Sue sent you!
Gracious beach house --
My husband and I have made the Bentley Inn our summer beach getaway. The Inn is one block from a quiet beach and Glenn, the inkeeper, provides beach chairs and umbrellas and bicyles for touring the quaint town.
This is a wonderful weekend retreat from the city! The rooms are quaint and charming -- not too fancy, but very comfortable. We love this place.
Just Like Home
We went to the Bentley Inn with another couple and had a fantastic time! It felt like home! From the comfort of the rooms, to the bike, to the great back-pack beach chairs, to the delicious breakfast everything exceeded our expectations. We recommend the Bentley Inn to everyone we know!
Perfect B&B on the NJ Shore
Bentley Inn is the perfect spot. My wife and I went for the weekend and absolutely loved it. The rooms are great, food is wonderful and Glen the innkeeper is a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this place!

TIP for Transatlantic Sailings: A friend sailed on the Transatlantic from England to New York in July 2007. She had a balcony stateroom. It's too cold to be on your balcony even for two minutes. She advised that you get an oceanview stateroom and spend your time exploring the ship and attending all the lectures and activities that this ship has to offer on these six-day sailings. ...
