Relaxing Time
Posted by Joan Clougherty
from Doylestown, PA

Spending time with you, Peggy Ann and Frank, and most of your family sure brightened my days.  Being on the Porch and watching the interplay of personalities was a thumb sketch of how the Osbornes love and care for one another and for their guests.

Thank you for opening your hearts and cheerful home to me.  I see that making people feel welcome is second nature to you and all your family.  

More Memories!
Posted by Connie Blood
from Moorestown, New Jersey

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.  It was a lucky day for our family when we found our seashore "home away from home" with the Osbornes.  We were all very comfortable and I especially enjoyed evening chats with my brother on the top floor deck-"under the stars".

Your children and grandchildren are dear and are carrying on your tradition of  WELCOME!

We will hope to see you again next summer.

Our Buried Treasure

We found our buried treasure by chance.  We climbed the steps to the wicker furniture dotted porch and entered the receiving room.  Feeling comfort and quaintness and seeing wooden floors and rails from long past, I knew this was where I wanted to stay.

Our room was lovely, beachy and bright with a deck viewing the ocean.  Most importantly was the feeling of family love and memories.  This is what Peggy Ann and Frank value most and they so warmly share it with their guests.  That's why when we return to Ocean City Osborne Inn will always be our first choice.

Better than being at work

It's true what they say, 'a bad day at the beach is better than a good day at the office'. Frank reminded me of that saying. July 6, 2017, I had just checked in at Frank and Peggy's charming Osborne's Inn, dropped off my luggage and headed straight for the beach. Returned a few hours later and was met by Frank who asked 'how was the beach?' to which I answered 'cold and windy'. The next day it rained, so I grabbed a David Baldacci novel from their bookcase, layed claim to a corner rocking chair on the porch and spent most of the day lost in the novel and listening to the rain. Enjoyed it so much that I did it again the next several days, even though the weather had cleared. I did manage to spend two very nice days on the beach but will always remember 'my spot' on the porch fondly.  

Summer vacations on OC

Wonderful memories in OC vacationing.  When first visiting, we stayed in motels.  Then came a time we stayed at Uncle Paul and Aunt Lillian's home on West which eventually was sold.  We rented from Mario (1 BR sleeps 10) then settled on 3 bedroom entire floor rentals.  Surrey, bikes or seashells in the morning.  Our kids and their cousins playing in the sand building sandcastles and jumping in the waves.  Mack and Manco's Pizza and Rita's Water Ice, Dippin' Dots or Kohr Bros for lunch on the Boardwalk.  Back to the beach for more sun and as dinnertime approached, staggering our return to shower for dinner.  After dinner, up to the boardwalk again for miniature golf, amusement park rides and, of course, dessert - or to Castle Park to race around the playground with a stop at Laura's Fudge for dessert. Now our kids are grown and we have discovered The Osborne Inn - close to the beach and boardwalk - comfortable beds,  reasonably priced, nice hosts and a wonderful front porch.  Bought a wooden sign for my screened porch in MN while on the boardwalk this year 'currently pretending I am at the beach' which I have prominently displayed.  Thanks for all our great vacation memories, OC!

We Love Ocean City!

We have been visiting Ocean City for many years and absolutely love the family atmosphere and the cleanliness!  We have traveled all over the world with the military and none have compared to the hospitality and friendship the Osborne family brings!  They greet you with open arms and always remember your names.  Always a comfortable stay and is home away from home! The best price on the island and one block from the beach!  It doesn't get any better than this!  Thank you Peggy Ann and Frank for your endless hospitality!

A Big Family

Imagine finding this big, impressive house as you walk down the street with a big front porch, the kind of house you used to find at the shore.  Then imagine how comfortable the porch is.  Then imagine finding the family at the house - parents, children and grandchildren.  This is Osborne's Inn!  Yes, the house is big, yes, the porch is big and comfortable and the perfect place to spend some down time and yes, you'll run into Frank, Peggy and some of their children and grandchildren.  It's almost like stepping back in time when houses were big and comfortable and family was first, family was friendly and the family welcomed you!  You're not however stepping back in time - it's actually the 21st century and you've disovered Osborne's Inn.  We happened upon this place and instantly like the warm, caring hosts and their family.  Everyone was welcomed and invited to join in all the fun.  We could come and go as we please, we could sit on the porch for hours and watch the world go by or we could walk the boards.  At the end of the day however, we knew we'd be going back to a really neat place where people cared about us - genuinely.  It was such a treat in a crazy world to find a place like this and be invited in to stay with Frank and Peggy!  

Love the shore!

We can't think of a better place for us to spend the summer than at the corner of 15th & Wesley.  Osborne's Inn and its many guests really makes us smile.

Come join us.

Family Vacation

This was our first stay with the Osbornes. Our family really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in apt. T and it was so beautiful and so spacious. I loved sitting outside on the porch for breakfast, and late at night sipping my tea. The Osbornes are very friendly and inviting, family atmosphere. We love OC. :)

A trip down memory lane.

Thank you Peggy for letting me reminisce.  I've passed by your house many times and am so happy to see what you and your husband have done with your family and with the many guests that come to the shore.  I appreciate your welcoming me so warmly.  May God continue to bless you as you go forward.

 

(N.B. - Bernadette is the woman from whom we purchased this property back in 1974.  She and her husband (Pat Madden) bought it from the Valiant family, owned it for one year as their plan was to open a racquet ball/tennis facility in Somers Point.  What a pleasure to see her after some 44 years.!!!!)
