About Jennifer

I am Ocean Grove's last remaining multi-generational innkeeper. My great-grandmother bought our hotel in 1898 and I'm the fourth generation woman in our family to own and operate it. It's been a blessing and a privilege to do so. But now it is time to let the Central Avenue House re-invent itself as a group rental. I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours has!

Jennifer purchased this hotel in 1899

Why Jennifer chose Ocean Grove

I was fortunate enough to be born into a family of female hoteliers in the most beautiful sea shore location on earth.

What makes this hotel unique

I love that you can walk just a few blocks and be anywhere you need to be! Whether it's two blocks to the beach or restaurants, or buying a quart of milk, getting the paper, going to the bank, post office or hardware store, everthing is so close! Best is walking into Asbury Park for the most exceptional musical and artistic culture you'll find anywhere. Asbury is the hipper, funkier, zanier cousin to Ocean Grove's Victorian, mom & pop, Americana, time stood still character. You've got the best of both worlds w/i blocks of each other when you stay at the Central Avenue House

What a great house, way above my expectations

  • 5 of 5
I have a large family, and always add on guests, everyone had a wonderful time, children never even asked, "what is there todo" from toddlers to tweens, all were busy. My favorite place was rocking on the front porch and talking to the passerbys. also experiencing the tent city and of course the wonderful 4th of July parade. This was a first at Ocean Grove and we Loved It.

Wonderful time in a wonderful town!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the Central Avenue House. Plenty of room for 20 or so guests. It was fantastic being 2 blocks from the beach and 2 blocks from shopping and restaurants. In addition, it was only about a 3/4 of a mile walk down the boardwalk to Asbury Park. Owner was extremely welcoming and hospitable. We spent a lot of time on the front porch and got to meet many of the friendly neighbors. Plenty of seating in the dining room but relatively small kitchen so large meal preparation is challenging. Fortunately, you can simply walk into town and eat so could be a plus. Enjoyed getting to know the town's history and listening to several performances in the "Great auditorium" as well as touring the "Tent City".

Owner's Response: When the Central Avenue House is filled with family such as yours enjoying each other, the home, the neighborhood, beach and town - that's what makes hanging onto this 115 year family tradition all worthwhile for me! Thank YOU so much!

Fantastic House-Charming, Roomy, Blocks to Beach!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Central Avenue house for 3 days over Labor Day weekend for our wedding weekend and it was a fantastic choice! We could not have been more pleased. The house was perfect for the wedding party plus a number of our guests that were traveling from out of town to attend. There was plenty of space for everyone and because the house used to be run as a b&b, each room can be locked and many of them have sinks inside - perfect for a large group where some people did not know each other. There are 2 porches (1st and 2nd floors), meaning lots of room to lounge and relax. The house is so cute and comfortable and was very clean. Our guests loved that there were beach tags and chairs that they could use at the beach just 2 blocks away. In addition to the beach, the house is located just blocks from the center of town where there are many shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this rental for any kind of large group, like wedding, reunion, retreat, etc. And Jennifer (the owner) is great to work with. Highly recommend - and enjoy your vacation!

Owner's Response: Oh Leigh, thank yo so much! No, it was my pleasure to watch another young couple launch their married lives from the Central Avenue House just as my grandparents did. Consider an anniversary party!

Best home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful house for my daughter wedding during Memorial weekend. We have total 26 relatives and friend came from Singapore, California, Maryland and New York. Everyone had a great time to stay here. Jennifer is a great hostess. She helps every way she can to make everyone feels like home. This location is a perfect location. Jennifer keeps the whole house clean and well organized.
Thank you Jennifer. We will definitely come back for another family reunion.

Bamboozle!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us stayed at the central house for the Bamboozle 2012 festival, and could not be more grateful we were able to stay at such a lovely place.
We were able to sleep everyone comfortably, had no issues whatsoever with finding the location, or checking in. The owner was incredibly helpful with the complete rental process, and was on location for our arrival.
Property was clean, well maintained, and just as described! Was within walking distance of the festival which came in handy for the long days/nights.

We would highly recommend staying here if you're in the area!

Ocean Grove was founded in 1869 as an outgrowth of the camp meeting movement in the United States. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has more per capita Victorian architecture than any other town in the United States. You don't even need a vehicle during your stay as everything in town is within walking distance. World famous Asbury Park, home of Bruce Springsteen, is just a 5 minute walk away. Asbury has emerged as the new Brooklyn with its fine restaurants, arts, music and entertainment scene. There is always a festival feel to this City by the Sea. We're a mere 45 miles south of New York City - hop the train from Asbury and be enchanted by all the City has to offer. Philadelphia is 70 miles west and easily accessible by bus or auto. Within 10 - 30 minutes by car you can indulge in marina fishing, golf, horseback riding/the track, Great Adventure amusement center & animal park and PNC Art Center concert hall. Atlantic City is 75 miles south.
