…A Gracious and Respectful Welcome to Everyone, Every Time


who could have imagined that our world would be under such  a  cloud at this time? During this indeterminate time when Minerva's will be closed,    rest assured that we are doing the obvious: a deep and obsessive cleaning!

  Those of you who are our regulars know that Minerva's owner--raised in   a   physicians' family, and having herself worked in hospital environments--has  always been obsessive about hygiene! And our beloved housekeeper brings--from  experience working in a nursing home-- her own commitment to persnickety-ness. (Those of you who don't know us yet, check our TripAdvisor reviews for     corroboration.) So, we urge our former and future guests to please be patient, vigilant, and compliant with 'curve-flattening' behaviors.    Soon, LBI and Ol' Barney will welcome all of us back again.

Our Promise

Welcome to

Minerva's by the Sea

Welcoming diverse people and fresh ideas

Looking for unique, family-friendly shore lodging that is neither a hotel nor a motel? Minerva's by the Sea is one of only two New Jersey bed and breakfasts at the north end of Long Beach Island. We are the only Barnegat Light lodging that is open all year!

A sleek, modern venue with uncluttered lines, squeaky-cleanliness, and a sunny living room with an eclectic, tantalizing library, Minerva's Bed & Breakfast's informal and whimsical decor offers guest-centered hospitality.
