Shame on me!

March 6, 2011

We have been so busy I have woefully not been able to share some of the wonderful moments we have had at the inn since I last wrote to you all.

Lots of weddings, showers-bridal and baby-2 teas, and a host of wonderful interesting guests.
And in the meantime working on some new packages with the Center for Massage Therapy, NJ Repertory and more.
I absolutely promise you get you up to date and let you know what else is coming.

Family Reunion at the Shore

July 15, 2009

The annual reunion of the Stryker family took place once again at Cedars & Beeches this past weekend. It has become a great tradition and up to four generations of family is now represented at the annual event. The cousins all get re-acquainted, especially those from the West Coast. The new arrivals, both newborns and married-ins, get into the ambiance quickly as this family is always so warm and welcoming.
Four years ago, when Kathryn and Jack got married, and the whole family stayed at Cedars & Beeches it was such a fun time for everyone that the reunion weekend was born. This year, the weekend started off with a shore bar-b-que with roasted clams, shrimp, to start, dinner quickly moved to lobsters, burgers for the land lubbers, corn, salads, minted watermelon and jumbo cookies. A few little hands through the cookies came first. After dinner the cards came out and so did the game boards.
Saturday several of the ladies went off to Aquamedica Spa for a morning of pampering, massages, facials, pedicures and manicures while the guys went off for on a fishing charter. And then off to the beach. The children brought back lots of souvenir shells and rocks-many of which surreptitiously found their way into the backyard garden.
Sunday morning breakfast was followed by lots of hugs and kisses and promises for next year.

Girlfriend’s Getaway

June 26, 2009

Teresa & Vanessa

 Do you know Teresa and Vanessa?  They just finished breakfast at Cedars & Beeches and are on their way to the beach. They enjoyed a Girlfriend’s Getaway package at Aquamedica Spa where each received a neck & shoulder massage to relax them and soothe their tired muscles and then for those aching feet, a reflexology massage.   A shared bottle of wine on the front porch, dinner on the Boardwalk, and a good night’s sleep.

Do you know Teresa and Vanessa?   They are the two friend’s sitting on the sand, laughing and relaxing, no tension anywhere.

Summer at the Shore

June 26, 2009

It hardly seems like it but the summer solstice has arrived and summer itself will soon too! One day the temperature will climb to the 80’s and it will be here. Are you ready? First visit Aquamedica Spa. Is your manicure a nice pink instead of a deep crimson- the better to reflect your tan. And your toes? This year the colors are incredible-bright and very noticeable next to your soon-to be great tan. And dare we mention it? Have you considered a waxing? You spent all winter working on that body; come on now – time to show it off. All set?
Then come check –in at Cedars & Beeches. Enjoy your breakfast out on the front porch and then early to the beach the next morning. That night show off your great tan, your summertime toes and fingers at one of our many restaurants. Enjoy a stroll on the boardwalk, listen to one of Long Branch’s many free concerts or dance at a club.

Circle of life

June 8, 2009

This weekend at Cedars & Beeches, one of our favorite couples came to visit again. They have often visited the inn for a relaxing weekend together. She is a model and he, in construction, both live in the city and have been dating for awhile. They arrived this weekend with news. Since their last visit, they got married and they are pregnant! Congratulations to the three (?) of them.
Hopefully they will come to visit before the little one is due and if they do, I am going to suggest they book the Babymoon Escape. On last quiet weekend before baby arrives! Check-in to Cedars & Beeches for the start of a restful stay-cation weekend at the Jersey Shore. Then off to Aquamedica Spa where she will enjoy a prenatal massage and a healing foot facial while he enjoys a therapeutic massage and purifying facial.
The perfect way to prepare for the new arrival.

Summer is coming

June 8, 2009

After a week of rain, the weekend brought beautiful, glorious sun and warm days to spend at the beach. Everyone must have been tired of sitting in or dodging raindrops because Cedars & Beeches phones’ were ringing with everyone wanting to come to shore. And not everyone was ready to expose those toes and skin to the sand and sun. So early Saturday morning, right after breakfast, some of our guests went off to Aquamedica Spa for a quick pedicure and even a waxing! From there just steps to the beach to luxuriate in the wonderfully warming sun.

A Wedding at the Inn

June 5, 2009

After a week of cool, damp weather, Saturday dawned, awash in sun light and comfortably warm, the best day of the week. We served our famous Cedars & Beeches breakfast on the front porch and this adventurous group tried all of our specials. Banana nut stuffed French toast and Dutch Baby pancakes were very popular. Then a whirlwind of activity as florists arrived, the baker with their confection, the band, the hair and makeup stylist and of course, to document it all, the photographer.
At 4 p.m., the music began. the bridal party jointly ascended and descended the grand staircase, arrived at the overhanging landing and all the planning, all the details, all came together in a resounding ” I do”.
The photographer was extremely busy with lots of photos so that memories of the dearest friends and family would be preserved forever.
Following a round of toasts and hors d’ouevres, dinner was served on the front porch. The evening had cooled just a bit and the weather was perfection as was the food.
With wedding cake for dessert, the formalities ended on a sweet note. Many of the guests sat on the porch until the wee hours sharing anecdotes and thoughts of the happy couple.

Wedding bells ringing at Cedars & Beeches

May 26, 2009

I love having weddings at the inn.  The joy and happiness of the close friends and family of the bride and groom is always so evident.  And since they spend three days together, the celebration is so much more meaningful then the usual 4 hour ceremony reception. 

The weather appears to be cooperating; we will be able to have the reception on the front porch.  This year we had two weddings during the winter and next weekend will be the first of two for the Spring.  I will share the details  next week.

Memorial Day Weekend at Cedars & Beeches Inn

May 26, 2009

What a great and very intersting weekend. The weatherman said it was not going to a good weekend but he was very wrong. In fact the only rain was late at night. I was amazed how many of our guests ahd stayed with us before. Great to have old friends visit again and again. The weekend was full of smiling faces, enjoying the sun, the beach and a great weekend of rest and relaxation

Graduation at Monmouth University

May 26, 2009

Well another year, another graduation and another group of MU parents to say goodbye to. Over the 4 years of a student’s life at MU,so many parents stay with us at Cedars & Beeches, it almost is like family visiting. Whether they come for parents weekend, homecoming, dropping off or picking up, for the short space of time their child is at Monmouth, we get to know them, their family. So the graduation is bittersweet. Farewell to our friends and hello to the next freshman classof parents visiting our inn.
