Your Hosts at Minerva's Bed and Breakfast By the Sea:

Your host team includes: Emma, Angela, Bob, Dan, Jean and Jeannette

  • ...have lived and worked all over the world, and enjoy the world’s people in all our variety.

  • ...have enjoyed filling Minerva's Island Room library with some of our favorite books.

  • fresh fruits and veggies and cheeses and wholesome breads, and love to share these with our friends. 

  • Long Beach Island, Barnegat Light, the Jersey Shore, the sand and shells and salt and sea, and enjoy the company of others.

Attending professional conferences helps the staff keep up with current hospitality-biz trends.



In September, 2011, Minerva's was honored to host Jean and Bob Bell's wedding reception.


Most likely, when you visit, you'll be greeted by primary owner / innkeeper Emma Lapsansky and her husband Dickson Werner...

...but you also might catch one of these other members of FourLaps, LLC.

When you call to make your reservation, you will probably talk to Emma's brother Dan, who is here enjoying supper in Minerva's homey kitchen.
