Our mission…A Gracious and Respectful Welcome to Everyone, Every Time
Minerva's is emerging, carefully, from "Covid-caution:" 

While we continue working with "GoFundMe" and corporate grants to develop a new venue to

re-open as a non-profit Wellness Center,

we will be hosting TWO Special FALL 2024 Workshops on LBI

A Women's Renewal Weekend November 8-10, 2024

A Writers' Retreat/Workshop November 15-17

Take a peek at some of the wonderful folks who have been part of Minervas Writers Workshops over the years.     

We continue to partner with Barnegat Light's White Whale Motel for special events, while we  work to build a new venue in Barnegat Light, which will support us in strategies and ventilation for "social distancing."

      And even more exciting is Minerva's  repositioning as a non-profit--so that any contributions you make to our re-awakening can be tax-deductible.  This repositioning will help us be even more intentional about our long-held mission to offer a special thank-you sea-side respite to those who do our nation's under-rewarded "community work" e.g., first-responders, special-ed teachers, medical-service personnel, delivery drivers, and folks like that special teenage guest who cut her long hair to donate to cancer-survivors.     Check it out!     < https://gofund.me/b1ca5afa>!

Welcome to

Minerva's by the Sea

Welcoming diverse people and fresh ideas
to a healthy breakfast 
since 2008!!

Looking for unique, family-friendly Jersey 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 (LBI). When we reopen, we will again be open all year!

A sleek, modern venue with uncluttered lines, eco-friendliness, squeaky-cleanliness, and an eclectic, tantalizing library, Minerva's Bed & Breakfast's informal and whimsical venue has been offering guest-centered hospitality since 2008 (with a several-year Covid Hiatus!). Watch for us to invite you to return to enjoy Long Beach Island  and all the great food you've come to expect at Minerva's. 

Going Green
Minerva's Bed & Breakfast

Start Your Day Right with

Minerva’s Gourmet Breakfast

At breakfast--(which is geared to respond to your dietary needs, e.g., gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, etc.) --you can spark up a conversation with the staff and/or Minerva's other guests about things that matter to you. That's the beauty of a stay at our New Jersey shore bed and breakfast!
