Spring Lake - the Town
THE TOWN OF SPRING LAKE
“Sweetheart of the Jersey Shore”
A radiantly refined and picturesque seaside town, Spring Lake offers its residents and vacationers a gentle and relaxed atmosphere of gracious living. Two miles of private beach and the longest non-commercial boardwalk in New Jersey have made it a unique resort for more than 100 years…where graceful architecture and manicured lawns whisper peacefulness.
At the turn of the 20th Century, it was one of the renowned luxurious vacation retreats for the wealthy and privileged. It has earned a place in history by maintaining its architectural integrity, old-world charm and poise. “Spring Lake”, named for the fountains of crystal clear water which emanate from a multitude of underground springs, is surrounded by wide tree-lined streets, hidden paths and rock gardens peeking through the weeping willows along the shoreline.
Located in a town that is delightfully out of date and where time seems to stand still, there is a distinguished collection of Victorian bed & breakfast inns and hotels, fine shops and boutique services. Spring Lake’s restaurants are unequaled for personalized service and congenial ambience that bring romance, elegance and history to life.
Whether enjoying tea in a grand dining room by the fire, strolling across one of the Lake’s arched wooden bridges, relaxing on a breezy open air porch, bicycling through town or painting in a wildflower garden, each season in Spring Lake welcomes you to enjoy the privacy and tranquility of this seaside paradise.
Conveniently near to Philadelphia and Manhattan, Spring Lake is an ideal destination for a quiet getaway, wedding or honeymoon, romantic retreat or family reunion. It’s one of America’s preciously kept secrets and we invite you to savor the moment with us.
