    A truly special Bed and Breakfast/Tea Room!

    Where to start??? I can’t not adequately put into words how beautiful, comfortable, safe and unique a stay at The Mathis House is! I took my teenage daughter to this historic Bed and Breakfast for a few nights during April Vacation. There we met a newly wed couple and a sweet women traveling solo. Everyone was enjoying themselves equally as much - it’s a place for everyone! The Mathis House has an amazing on site Tea Service with OVER 80 different teas to choose from!! Breakfast every morning was delicious and prepared by the owner, Vicki - who is in love with what she does and it truly shows in her establishment. Every night had an amazing 5 course dinner if we wanted to par take. The entire staff was friendly and welcoming. Covid guidelines were followed with mask and social distancing, hand sanitizer everywhere, etc. If your looking for a relaxing, beautiful, unique and fun place to stay to cure those COVID blues this place is like no other, especially if you like scones! We will be back, soon!

    One of the best places I have stayed. The staff including the owner could not be more accommodating. I have unique needs they not only met them, they exceeded my expectations. Can’t wait to come back.

    First time at a bed and breakfast

    Stayed in the Samantha room. Couldn't get the temperature of the room to stay where we wanted it to. It fluctuated from 68 to 78 degrees when we had it set to the lowest setting of 64. TV we couldn't get working besides on demand (pay per movie) setting. Bathroom and bed were fine. The bed is a full/double. Light came in through the windows at night & sunrise because they have a spotlight on the house and the house must face East to get the sunrise in. No one checked ID at check in. They had an event going on during check in. You can hear doors slamming & whenever people are in the hallway of the second floor. It seems like all of the rooms are on the second floor. During the event could hear piano music from downstairs in the room. At night around 9-9:30 there was loud Christian music being played on the first floor that could be heard in our room but that lasted only a short period of time. Innkeeper offered us leftover cake at night which was good and unexpected. Breakfast was corned beef egg dish (forget the name atm) with a scone and toast and jam. The scone was amazing. The egg dish was okay and the jam was also good. You can have orange juice, tea, or coffee for breakfast. There seemed to be 2 other couples/guests at breakfast and everyone sat at separate tables. The innkeeper has a dog that sometimes barks in the basement. No big deal but just think that should be noted in case anyone is allergic to dogs. Microwave/refrigerator/Keurig in hall to share with everyone.

    I have stayed in several of the Hotels in Tom's River and Seaside Heights and have always been disappointed. I tried something different this time and stayed at Mathis House. It was a great decision. It is a good central location and the staff is very friendly. The house itself is beautiful. The breakfast was delicious and filling, I would return for the scones alone!
