So Many Wonderful Memories

August 25, 2017 I booked the Kelley room since that was my last name. Little did I know that my now husband was going to propose to me in that room! A year later, August 2018 we are back to celebrate now as husband and wife. The Osborne Inn will always hold a special place in our hearts because we got engaged here, but also because Frank & Peggy Ann make you feel like family from the moment you step foot on their beautiful front porch until you leave. Their hospitality is like no other. Why book a hotel room, when you can book a room at the Osborne Inn where it feels like home! Thank you so much Frank & Peggy for two great years of wonderful memories! Already looking forward to next year!!!

Love the shore!

Hi Peggy Ann,

We had a wonderful time at your lovely home last week!!!& nbsp & nbsp We have come to Ocean City every summer for many years. We are so happy we found Osborne Inn. We love coming here! Frank and Peggy Ann are so friendly and know everything about Ocean City and are quick to share.

Apartment T is so accommodating and has a beautiful Ocean View from the deck! So great to sit out there morning and evening! It is a very short walk to the beach and boardwalk. OC is our favorite place to be. Thank you Osbornes for making it so special!

High School memories at Cardinal Dougherty

HI Peggy Ann:    Sorry, I haven't a memory of the Osborne Inn. Just passing by it as I was in the city.  After spending at least an hour reading all the memories of others staying there, I had to write! (I will read the next ones starting with 121)!

What a tribute to you, Peggy Ann and Frank and all your family for such a warm and inviting place for people to stay! Too bad I never remembered you were there. If I had I would have stayed at the Osborne Inn many times!

I will put your place on the top of my list to stay next year, God willing I'm still around! I'm already comimtted this summer.

Looking forward to creating 'MY Memory' of the Osborne Inn with such a wonderful history of friends, family and forever friends you've made along the way!

God Bless you and your family!

Anniversary weekend
Posted by Ed & Kim Gantert
from Readng, Pa

We came down the weekend of May 19th for our Anniversary, and that turned into an Anniversary week!!

Peggy Ann and Frank were so gracious to put us in the lovely apartment on the second floor. It was wonderful! They make you feel like family. The Osborne's Inn is a beautiful Victorian home. We had a balcony to sit and read and you could view the ocean.

We want to thank you Peggy Ann and Frank from the bottom of our hearts for giving us a beautiful week! We will be back!

Never Forget

This memory is one I will never forget.  This past weekend I came to Osborne Inn and met my boyfriend's family and ended up meeting another family, the Osbornes.  Peggy Ann and Frank were wonderful hosts and I felt like I was being welcomed into their home.  They have a beautiful family. Peggy Ann shared how they came with young children and have persevered for 45 years and created a true treasure.

This was my first trip to Ocean City, New Jersey and I will hold fast my recollections of the beautiful homes, the great boardwalk, the delicious eateries, and the fantastic beach.  I hope this will be a place I return to often.  I met two wonderful families this past weekend and I pray I continue to create more wonderful memories in the future.

Thank you Peggy Ann and Frank for making this past week one I will never forget.

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.& amp nbsp I see that making people feel welcome is second nature to you and all your family.

More Memories!

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!
