It's Time to Hit the Beach!

This is a reprint from a recent article from Select Registry a travel oriented site highlighting a diverse collection of independent, boutique properties. While we know that Spring Lake is an absolute jewel, it's good to see it recognized by a national publication!

A trip to the Jersey Shore is an essential part of every summer for those living on the northeastern seaboard. Though there are plenty of great vacation destinations, one of our favorites is Spring Lake, NJ, often referred to as the “jewel” of the Jersey Shore.

The vast expanses of sandy beaches on the Jersey Shore lure millions of people each year. The Jersey Shore, which extends from Perth Amboy in the north to Cape May Point in the south, offers more than 90 miles of beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. It’s easy to see the draw! As great as the beaches of the Jersey Shore are, they aren’t the only reason to visit charming towns like Spring Lake, NJ.

A visit to Spring Lake, NJ, is about so much more than the beach, though. It’s a chance to get away, slow down, and reconnect with those closest to you. There are plenty of things to do here and plenty of peace and quiet for those days when you don’t feel like doing much. It truly offers the best of both worlds.

Not only that, but you’ll find that Spring Lake, NJ, is home to a Select Registry property, offering you exceptional lodging during your time at the beach. Like other Select Registry properties on the Jersey Shore, the one found here is the perfect resort destination for all your traveling needs. We hope you’ll join us for the relaxing beach vacation you need this summer.


The white, sandy beaches and the (usually) gentle surf of the Jersey Shore paint a compelling picture. Beaches stretch before you as far as the eye can see, with chairs and umbrellas dotting the sand and reminding us of the simple joy of spending an entire day at the beach.

Add to these gorgeous beaches plenty of water activities to enjoy, birdwatching, fishing, boating, lighthouses, boardwalks, and charming towns to visit. You have the recipe for a delightful vacation on the Jersey Shore.

With 90 miles of beaches to explore, it’s probably no surprise that there are many coastal towns worth visiting. One of our favorites, though, is Spring Lake, NJ. Spring Lake, NJ is a part of the Jersey Shore defined by an era of grace and elegance, where barons of industry in the Victorian Age once vacationed with their families.

Today, the quaint town of Spring Lake, NJ, offers a quiet escape to a simpler area. There’s a beautiful boardwalk that meanders along the beach, but unlike other Jersey Shore destinations, this one doesn’t come with all of the neon lights. Instead, you’ll find 2 miles of pristine beach to enjoy and plenty of fine dining. It’s the perfect place to scale the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Spring Lake, NJ, is also home to one of our exceptional Select Registry Bed and Breakfasts. You can feel confident you’re booking one of the best places to stay on the Jersey Shore because standing behind each Select Registry property is 50 years of industry-leading hospitality and the toughest inspection process in the hospitality industry.
