Beautiful Beach Block Victorian ~ Great for Family Reunions, Weddings & More!
Polly is a Regional EHS manager at ADT and Sue is an attorney. Sue is an adjunct professor in the College of Professional Studies at Villanova University in Villanova, PA. Polly teaches at Drexel University where she is pursuing a doctorate in Information Studies. In addition to the Victoria Inn, we own and operate our Wellington Oasis (VRBO Listing #995401), a spectacular home in the heart of Wellington (Palm Beach County, Florida) - the Winter Equestrian Capital of the World. Fortunately, Polly is quite handy and enjoys making improvements to the Inn. Sue is 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!
Susan purchased this House in 2004
Why Susan chose Ocean City
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 14 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.

Dream house for a large group specially if you have kids around :)
It was wonderful staying at the property, for large groups and families its the best thing you could have. The rooms and the interior is truly amazing. House is spacious, clean, conveniently located to all the attractions. We had parking for two cars in the driveway, would have been better if we had another one :). Susan was very spontaneous with her responses which helped a great deal. All in all it was a pleasure staying at the property and we would strongly recommend to others.
Thanks, Sunny! I'm glad you enjoyed our lovely home. Your characterization of our home as a "Dream House" makes us so happy! We've been upgrading and renovating for over 15 years, and I think the words "Dream House" accurately represent all we've been trying to achieve. Regarding the parking, each unit gets two off-street spaces which is great for Ocean City properties although more would be amazing! We do have unlimited free off-street parking, and when we are in OC, we do our best to "save" one or two extra spaces on the street. We hope you will return!
Rest, Relax & Refresh!
Stayed here with my family for a few days. This beautiful vacation home was a perfect blend of history and every modern convenience. Beach breezes move thru the large open windows and spacious tall ceiling spaces. From the large kitchen table which fit the whole family, to the spacious wrap around porch — plenty of room for everyone to be together. Loved the easy walk to the beach, boardwalk and local tennis courts. Close to everything and the owners made sure we lacked for nothing. We will definitely go back to this lovely gem!
Victorian Inn what a beautiful place! Immaculately clean and ornately decorated. Visually appealing outside as well. Sit on the patio and relax. The owners Polly and Sue are very gracious and aim to please.
Thank you, Sunshine : ) We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you next year.
The Victoria Inn is a beautiful relaxing getaway. The house is beautiful, just a short stroll to the beach and boardwalk on a quiet street. We had a wonderful, quiet, relaxing stay. The house had everything we needed and more. Thanks so much to Polly & Sue, our stay was perfect.
Thanks, Jill! Girls Getaways are very popular at the Victoria Inn. There's so much to do with the beach, boardwalk, shops, salons, and restaurants - all within walking distance. New this year, we can even schedule massages at the Inn.
This house is in the perfect location. Less than 5 min walk to the beach and Boardwalk . The house is full of Victorian style decorations and antiques. Lots of bedrooms, all clean.
I grew up in Ocean City, so getting married there seemed like the right choice for my husband and me. We moved to Washington after graduating from college, and hasn't seen many of our friends (college and high school) in quite a while. We wanted to all stay together for the weekend of our wedding. The hotels were going to cost way too much since we would need several rooms. I came across the Pink Victorian and it was perfect! We could all stay in one house and we could get loud and act like kids again without disrupting anyone. We had a wonderful stay, a beautiful wedding, and would love to return for a stay with all of our old friends again in the future.
Thank you, Brittany and Ethan for choosing our home for your wedding! It means so much to us when guests choose our home for their wedding celebration, as we know how important and special the day is! We are thrilled you had a wonderful weekend, and wish you a lifetime of love, happiness and joy. We hope to see you in the future!
