Description

Let your creative juices flow at an inn named for the goddess of medicine, healing, crafts, poetry, and music. Located two blocks from the beach on the northern tip of Long Beach Island, the bed and breakfast is a wheelchair accessible, quiet retreat. Eat breakfast on the deck with views of the Barnegat Lighthouse, or "Old Barney" as it is affectionately called. There's a diverse library for a book to read at the beach. You can ride around town using the complimentary bicycles. Feel like you have your own private family apartment in the Emperor Penguin suite with a full kitchen, bedroom with queen bed, and room for three people to sleep in the living room. All five guest rooms have their own bathroom. Plan your family reunion in Barnegat Light; up to 20 family members can stay at the inn. Get away from it all in this un-commercialized and rarely crowded part of the Jersey Shore.

Wonderful Hospitality!!

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality! My daughter and I came here to celebrate our July 3 birthdays together. We both appreciate your thoughtfulness. You served us little cakes with candles and sand us "happy birthday" at breakfast: we loved the toys you gave us.

Thank you for providing this wonderful get-a-way and "go-to" experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the creative environment of Minerva's: everything from the delicious and delightful menu and conversation to the in-and-out-of-doors peacefulness. Thanks for the replenishment of spririt.
