I must go down to the seas again
- John Masefield Sea Fever

The way to get a feel for the Jersey Shore of yesteryear is to live it, feel it and embrace it in every way ...That is why guests come to Cashelmara Bed and Breakfast By-The-Sea...

Cashelmara from the jettyOriginally built as a summer estate nearly a century ago by William G. Wilcox, a prominent United States statesman, the grand house was almost completely surrounded by water with the Atlantic Ocean on one front and a tranquil seaside lagoon on the other. From the broad verandah of this stately home, Wilcox could watch the sparkling sea, smell the fresh salty air and hear the sounds of the surf and the cries of gulls.

And all I ask is a windy day with

Dining RoomThe historic home where Mr Wilcox caught the ‘Sea Fever’ is now a beautifully restored bed and breakfast inn for all seasons, where you too can say good morning to the Atlantic Ocean from almost every room. In the spring and summer, rock contentedly as you watch the sea from the grand verandah.

Room 22After a relaxing day of enjoying the surf and sand, strolling the quiet boardwalk, biking, or just savoring the fabulous water views from the verandah, you’ll return to your charming antique filled bedroom. All bedrooms, from the larger sea view to the cozy gabled rooms, are charming and comfortably appointed to preserve the traditional charm of a bygone era. All have modern private baths and some feature fireplaces and Jacuzzis.

CinemaFor unique fun, your visit to Cashelmara Inn would not be complete without a visit to the Grand Victorian Cinema. When the curtain opens, grab a bag of popcorn and relax comfortably in your velvet seat watching movies in fabulous THX surround sound.
