The gorgeous family room has a sofa, loveseat, 42 inch flat screen HDTV with cable, DVD player, PlayStation II with lots of video games, dozens of books & many board games.

Window air conditioning units and ceiling fans are located in the family room & each bedroom. The condo stays extremely cool.

About Susan Bacastow

We (I’m Susan and my partner Polly) both love collecting antiques, renovating houses, traveling, and reading. I have four children ages 20 to 28, and the youngest enjoys spending his summers at the beach with us, working at a nearby restaurant. We have two amazing grandchildren, and we love when they visit us in Ocean City - going to the beach, boardwalk and amusement piers!

While my primary job is managing The Victoria Inn, Polly and I are both adjunct professors in the College of Part-Time Studies at Villanova University. I teach Leadership courses and Polly teaches Information Systems. I have my law degree from Widener and my LLM from Villanova. Polly has a Bachelor’s in Paralegal Studies from Widener, her Master’s in Information Systems from Drexel University, and is currently pursuing her doctorate in Information Studies at Drexel. Fortunately, Polly is quite handy and enjoys making improvements to the Inn. I’m constantly redecorating, so returning guests always find something new! We are both avid antique collectors. Most weekends, time permitting, we are at estate sales, garage sales, or antique stores. It’s one of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon. We’ve had so much fun renovating, furnishing and decorating our house. A recent guest told us she could “feel the love in every room”. If you are looking for a true home away from home, this is your vacation home!

Susan Bacastow purchased this condo in 2004

Why Susan Bacastow chose South NJ Shore

WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! We love the history, architecture and charm of old homes. Our house was built in 1915 and we have spent the last twelve years renovating the Victoria Inn, making it an absolutely idyllic vacation retreat. We love old homes and the family-friendly atmosphere of Ocean City - a fun, safe place to vacation. OC has won many awards and was recently named the greatest family vacation resort by Travel magazine. It's comforting to allow the children to explore the town without worrying about bars on every corner as found in many other south jersey beach towns. We are located 1 block to the beach and 2.5 mile boardwalk. Every block of our fabulous beach is guarded, & the 7th Street beach is a guarded beach only for surfing. With so much to do, you can walk anywhere and avoid paying for parking! The boardwalk has 2 great amusement piers, a water park, several mini-golf courses, music pier, arcades, surf shops, a movie theater, dozens of stores, and every kind of 'fun food' imaginable: ice cream, pizza, salt water taffy, caramel corn, water ice, candy, fudge, French fries, seafood, smoothies, cotton candy, and more. We are just a couple of blocks to the 100+ shops and many restaurants on Asbury Avenue, a great shopping venue for a girls' weekend or a break from the hot sun! Less than a block from our home you will find 12 tennis courts, a track, football field, shuffleboard courts, basketball court, & beach volleyball. You can rent bicycles for a morning ride on the boardwalk. Just a few blocks away is the bay where you can rent jet skis, go deep sea fishing, crabbing, enjoy a whale & dolphin watching cruise, go parasailing, or enjoy a delicious meal. If you just want to relax, our wrap-around deck is a terrific spot to savor your morning coffee, read a book, play a game, people watch, or enjoy cocktails. The courtyard is perfect for celebrations with seating for 40!

What makes this condo unique

The Victoria Inn is a truly unique setting for fantastic summer vacations, intimate weddings, fabulous birthday parties, memorable anniversaries, festive holiday celebrations, & fun-filled family reunions. Newly married, Polly and I especially enjoy hosting weddings, & we will gladly assist you in planning the perfect event! Our lovely, partially enclosed courtyard, reminiscent of a French Cafe, has seating for 40 at fabulous wrought iron tables & chairs with many potted, hanging & climbing flowers, & hundreds of tiny white lights. Expanded in 2016, the courtyard now features stunning pavers and a raised garden, making it a spectacular setting for celebrations!

With accommodations for up to 40, the Victoria Inn provides a reasonably priced retreat venue. Meeting space for large groups is available just a few blocks away. We will gladly assist with reservations.

From mid-June to the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend, we have weekly rentals only. However, we rent year-round. From September to mid-June, a 2 night minimum stay is required, except for holidays with a 3 night minimum.

In addition to celebrations, guests have gathered for Creative Memories Scrap-booking, Mah-Jong weekends, yoga, spiritual, & youth retreats. Ocean City also hosts many special events including the M.S. Bike-a-thon, ALS walk, antique car show, Spring & Fall Block Parties, craft shows, art shows, Easter Egg Hunt with 100,000 eggs, Decorated Hat Parade, Halloween Festivities, Trick-or-Treating, Hayrides on the boardwalk, Music Festivals, Breakfast with Santa & Free Horse & Carriage Rides! Just steps from our house are all of the fabulous First Night (New Year's) Activities with fireworks, rides, musicians, shows & magicians.

Conveniently located, 20 minutes to Atlantic City’s casinos & terrific shopping outlets; 30 minutes to historic Cape May with its famous zoo, many antique stores, dozens of shops, Victorian homes & fantastic restaurants, 1 hour to Philadelphia, & 2.5 hours to NY City.

Beautiful Property - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

From the very first interaction with the owners Polly and Susan, we knew this was the place fore us! The location is perfect! A short walk to boardwalk, beach, rides, movies and plenty of places to eat. The property is very well maintained and was perfect for our group (5 adults and 3 kids). There is access to 3 grilles and grilling utensils, shared washer and dryer, two outdoor showers and the most beautiful patio. We ate most of our meals on the patio. It was so relaxing with beautiful flowers, lattice and pleanty of tables and chairs. Susan and Polly were so welcoming and helping is recommending restaurants for the nights we went out to eat and even leant us a couple things we forgot to bring. My nephew, who is 6, says he wishes he could go back in time to the best beach vacation ever! We would definately recommend this property and hope to stay again.

Beyond Fabulous !!! A must visit !

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the Easter weekend at this great condo. So charming and spotless. It felt like home. Such comfortable beds and beautiful linens and quilts to snuggle into. Great to have 2 baths also. The owners, Sue and Polly, treated us like special house guests.

Loved having my coffee in the lovely courtyard. just a half block walk to the beach and boardwalk was super convenient for all the shops and rides.

There are several units and a large Victorian house, so it is a must visit for anyone from a couple to a large family reunion or wedding.

Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Sandy. We're glad you enjoyed the condo and the comfy new mattresses! The courtyard is more beautiful a bit later in the spring with the many flowers including the gorgeous climbing Mandevillas. We hope to see you again soon! The Easter Season is when Ocean City springs into full bloom! With the Easter Egg Hunt on Palm Sunday Weekend and the various Breakfasts with the Easter Bunny, half price ride tickets, and many other events, it is a great time of year to visit! The many churches throughout the city have wonderful events planned as well including the Living Last Supper and Stations of the Cross.

Wonderful Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was such a great place for our much needed getaway! It comfortably housed our group in a cozy, intimate home-away-from-home experience that fully met our expectations of rentals. High quality furnishings and functional kitchen, and close walk to the boardwalk and beach. Most of all, the owners, Sue and Polly, were so accommodating and hospitable - we could not have had a warmer welcome and arrangement of our stay. After touring the other condo unit and main house, we could Highly recommend any of the Victorian property for your vacation - off season or summer!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Emily! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. The new electric fireplace really does make the condo extra warm and cozy in the winter. Ocean City has much to offer in the winter - over 100 shops and restaurants along Asbury Avenue, great shows, fabulous restaurants and wonderful outlets in Atlantic City, and of course, our favorite --- antique shopping in Seaville and Cape May!

Friends weekend in Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

We came for a weekend to see friends and tickets to Fleetwood Mac at Ceasers in AC. Staying at Victoria Inn, has it all. Location at the beach, close to AC, without having all the noise and traffic. The rooms are clean, beautiful and it feels like you're at your home away from home. And our gracious hosts, Sue and Polly top it off. All this makes for a great get away package. We will be back.

The property is conveniently located to the beach and boardwalk. The unit is roomy enough for a large family, and there are many sleeping options for those with children. The owners are wonderful, friendly and helpful getting you situated. I would highly recommend this condo for a beach getaway.

Perfect Blend of Old and New

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Condo B a number of times, and now it feels like visiting family. It's a perfect set-up for families with teens or young adults, with shared living room/kitchen and a separate bedroom that sleeps 5 (plus a pull-out sofa) that has its own bath. The on-site owners instantly respond to every need. The beautiful original architecture of the property is intact, and the interior has been completed renovated, with every modern convenience you could possibly want. Every room is furnished and outfitted beautifully. There are other units available making this a perfect location for a family reunion. We've been coming to Ocean City for more than 30 years, and we can't imagine staying anywhere else!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Nancy. We LOVE it when your family visits! Just an FYI - we will be replacing the sofa in the third bedroom this year and it won't be a sleeper sofa as there isn't really enough room. Not quite sure what we'll have - likely a loveseat or two arm chairs. The property description will be updated as soon as we decide. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
