Former Quarterdeck Inn Site Set To Transform Into 105 Room Hotel LBI

Hotel LBI Credits: Craig Brearly Architect AIA

SHIP BOTTOM, NJ - The owner and developer of two distinctive properties in Stafford and LBI plans to erect a 105 room Victorian style hotel at the former site of the Quarter Deck Inn at the entrance to Long Beach Island in Ship Bottom.   The plans were approved a few years ago for the large hotel but the owner decided to moderately renovate the Quarterdeck building and develop it into the Stateroom.  The Stateroom was a wedding and banquet facility open the last few years. 

The owner and developer Christopher Vernon will be appearing before the Ship Bottom Land Use Board this Wednesday, January 18.  The new resort will be called the Hotel LBI.  Vernon is the developer and owner of the Bonnett Island Estate, the Mallard Island Yacht Club and the Stateroom.  

The site plan was initially approved in 2015 but there are two revisions the builder is seeking for approval.  The fact that the builder is approaching the Land Use Board at this time indicates that the project is ready to move forward.

The Stateroom will be demolished to make room for the new hotel.  The project previously received height and occupancy variances from the Ship Bottom Land Use Board.  

The hotel will also host banquets and weddings.  The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2018.  Craig Brearly AIA is the architect for this project.  He also designed the Mallard Island and Bonnett Island Estates.
