Ocean Grove

Ocean Grove was founded in 1869 as an outgrowth of the camp meeting movement in the United States. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has more per capita Victorian architecture than any other town in the United States. You don't even need a vehicle during your stay as everything in town is within walking distance. World famous Asbury Park, home of Bruce Springsteen, is just a 5 minute walk away. Asbury has emerged as the new Brooklyn with its fine restaurants, arts, music and entertainment scene. There is always a festival feel to this City by the Sea. We're a mere 45 miles south of New York City - hop the train from Asbury and be enchanted by all the City has to offer. Philadelphia is 70 miles west and easily accessible by bus or auto. Within 10 - 30 minutes by car you can indulge in marina fishing, golf, horseback riding/the track, Great Adventure amusement center & animal park and PNC Art Center concert hall. Atlantic City is 75 miles south.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1899

About the owner: I am Ocean Grove's last remaining multi-generational innkeeper. My great-grandmother bought our hotel in 1898 and I'm the fourth generation woman in our family to own and operate it. It's been a blessing and a privilege to do so. But now it is time to let the Central Avenue House re-invent itself as a group rental. I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours has!

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Grove, Neptune Township, NJ, USA:
I was fortunate enough to be born into a family of female hoteliers in the most beautiful sea shore location on earth.

The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
I love that you can walk just a few blocks and be anywhere you need to be! Whether it's two blocks to the beach or restaurants, or buying a quart of milk, getting the paper, going to the bank, post office or hardware store, everthing is so close! Best is walking into Asbury Park for the most exceptional musical and artistic culture you'll find anywhere. Asbury is the hipper, funkier, zanier cousin to Ocean Grove's Victorian, mom & pop, Americana, time stood still character. You've got the best of both worlds w/i blocks of each other when you stay at the Central Avenue House
