House Rules

  • Max. occupancy 40
  • Events Allowed
  • Minimum Age Limit For Renters:

    Families with children of any age are welcome at all times. For groups with the majority of guests under the age of 25, please call or email for information. ...moreless

  • Children Welcome:

    We are very often asked if our home is suitable for families with young children. The answer is YES!!! We have rented to hundreds of families in the past ten years, and all have found the house to be extremely family friendly. All of the china and crystal shown in arms' reach and all of the more expensive decorations are either in china cabinets, display cases, on the top shelf of the bar fireplace mantle (out of reach for youngsters), or put away for summer rentals. All valuable decorations are out of arms' reach. The coffee tables and side tables are cleared of all breakables, so there are no worries! Our living room furniture in the main house is newly recovered and absolutely beautiful, but it has slipcovers for summer & family rentals. For weddings and other celebrations, we will gladly redecorate with crystal and Lenox for your guests to enjoy. We 'redecorate' every fall for off-season rentals! For Christmas rentals, the house is fully decorated & absolutely breathtaking....moreless

  • Non Smoking Only:

    Smoking permitted outside only. Please dispose of cigarette butts in appropriate containers (clay flower pots filled with sand). ...moreless

  • Pets Not Allowed:

    Although pets are not allowed, occasionally the dogs of our friends or families, and sometimes our cats, join us in the house during the off-season, so this house may not be suitable for people allergic to animals. We do NOT allow guests to bring pets of any size on our property, regardless of whether the pet is crated and regardless of size and behavior. Bringing a pet onto our property will result in immediate termination of the lease and forfeiture of all money paid. The only exception to this is that a service dog may be brought into Condo A for sight and hearing impaired persons only, with prior written approval of the Lessor. No other "service" or "therapy" animals are permitted. ...moreless

  • We are often told the bedrooms in our house are more beautifully decorated than those of an upscale B & B! All 14 bedrooms are newly renovated, gorgeous, and comfortable with air conditioning, 27' or 32' hdtv/dvd combinations, & cable - the perfect respite at the end of a busy, fun-filled day! We provide mattress pads, pillows & comforters, but not sheets. Condo A is the handicap-friendly unit under the main house with 4 bedrooms, all with relatively low ceilings (79' to 81'). Condo B is the adjacent 3 bedroom (all with ceiling fans) unit with standard-size ceilings. Both condos were fully renovated in 2014 and are gorgeous. The condos are perfect for guests who wish to avoid stairs, as both are ground level units. The Harmony bedroom on the 3rd floor has the lowest ceilings in the house; part of the room has high ceilings, but the bed is under a sloped wall, so keep this in mind when assigning rooms. Ideal for family reunions with 14 bedrooms, 3 full kitchens, & multiple living areas!...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We (I’m Susan and my partner Polly) both love collecting antiques, renovating houses, traveling, and reading. I have four children ages 20 to 28, and the youngest enjoys spending his summers at the beach with us, working at a nearby restaurant. We have two amazing grandchildren, and we love when they visit us in Ocean City - going to the beach, boardwalk and amusement piers! While my primary job is managing The Victoria Inn, Polly and I are both adjunct professors in the College of Part-Time Studies at Villanova University. I teach Leadership courses and Polly teaches Information Systems. I have my law degree from Widener and my LLM from Villanova. Polly has a Bachelor’s in Paralegal Studies from Widener, her Master’s in Information Systems from Drexel University, and is currently pursuing her doctorate in Information Studies at Drexel. Fortunately, Polly is quite handy and enjoys making improvements to the Inn. I’m constantly redecorating, so returning guests always find something new! We are both avid antique collectors. Most weekends, time permitting, we are at estate sales, garage sales, or antique stores. It’s one of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon. We’ve had so much fun renovating, furnishing and decorating our house. A recent guest told us she could “feel the love in every room”. If you are looking for a true home away from home, this is your vacation home! If enjoying palm trees and warm weather in winter is what you are looking for, check out our Florida property, "Wellington Oasis", listing #995401.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean City, NJ, USA:
WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! We love the history, architecture and charm of old homes. Our phenomenal house was built in 1915 and we have spent the last 12 years renovating the Victoria Inn, making it an absolutely idyllic vacation retreat. We love old homes and the family-friendly atmosphere of Ocean City - a fun, safe place to vacation. OC has won many awards and was recently named the greatest family vacation resort by Travel magazine. It's comforting to allow the children to explore the town without worrying about bars on every corner as found in many other south jersey beach towns. We are located 1 block to the beach and 2.5 mile boardwalk. Every block of our fabulous beach is guarded, & the 7th Street beach is a guarded beach only for surfing. With so much to do, you can walk anywhere and avoid paying for parking! The boardwalk has 2 great amusement piers, a water park, several mini-golf courses, music pier, arcades, surf shops, a movie theater, dozens of stores, and every kind of 'fun food' imaginable: ice cream, pizza, salt water taffy, caramel corn, water ice, candy, fudge, French fries, seafood, smoothies, cotton candy, and more. We are just a couple of blocks to the 100+ shops and many restaurants on Asbury Avenue, a great shopping venue for a girls' weekend or a break from the sun! Less than a block from our home you will find 12 tennis courts, a track, football field, shuffleboard courts, basketball court, & beach volleyball. You can rent bicycles for a morning ride on the boardwalk. Just a few blocks away is the bay where you can rent jet skis, go deep sea fishing, crabbing, enjoy a whale & dolphin watching cruise, go parasailing, or enjoy a delicious meal. New in 2016 is a state of the art skate park just a few blocks away (full pads req'd). If you want to relax, our wrap-around deck is a terrific spot to savor your morning coffee, read a book, play a game, people watch, or enjoy cocktails. The courtyard is ideal for celebrations with seating for 40.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Victoria Inn is a truly unique setting for fantastic summer vacations, intimate weddings, fabulous birthday parties, memorable anniversaries, festive holiday celebrations, & fun-filled family reunions. Newly married, Polly and I especially enjoy hosting weddings, & we will gladly assist you in planning the perfect event! Our lovely, partially enclosed courtyard, reminiscent of a French Cafe, has seating for 40 at fabulous wrought iron tables & chairs with many potted, hanging & climbing flowers, & hundreds of tiny white lights. Expanded in 2016, the courtyard now features stunning pavers and a raised garden, making it a spectacular setting for celebrations! All guests absolutely love the new courtyard! It truly is perfect for all types of celebrations. With accommodations for up to 40, the Victoria Inn provides a reasonably priced retreat venue. Meeting space is available on site, or for large groups just a few blocks away. We will gladly assist with reservations. In addition to celebrations, guests have gathered for Creative Memories Scrap-booking, Mah-Jong weekends, yoga, spiritual, & youth retreats. Ocean City also hosts many special events including the M.S. Bike-a-thon, ALS walk, antique car show, Spring & Fall Block Parties, craft shows, art shows, Easter Egg Hunt with 100,000 eggs, Decorated Hat Parade, Halloween Festivities, Trick-or-Treating, Hayrides on the boardwalk, Music Festivals, Breakfast with Santa & Free Horse & Carriage Rides! Just steps from our house are all of the fabulous First Night (New Year's) Activities with fireworks, rides, musicians, shows & magicians. Conveniently located, 20 minutes to Atlantic City’s casinos & terrific shopping outlets; 30 minutes to historic Cape May with its famous zoo, many antique stores, dozens of shops, Victorian homes & fantastic restaurants, 1 hour to Philadelphia, & 2.5 hours to NY City.
