Welcome to the Award Winning Historic home of the
“Father of Atlantic City”, Dr. Jonathan Pitney.
The home was built in 1799, added to in 1848 and
beautifully restored in 2015.
Here at the Jersey Shore there is no shortage of amazing day trips just a short distance for the Jonathan Pitney house. Let us help you plan your days and your nights. Just 20 minutes from Atlantic City with it's fast moving pace. Or choose to slow it down in Ocean City with beautiful beaches and boardwalks.
Breakfast is a special time at the Pitney House and we take pride in our breakfasts, which has become a trade mark of our Inn. You will be pampered with breakfast served to you in our 18 century dining room.
Dr Pitney was a prominent man who came to Absecon in 1819 convinced that the climate was ideal for a health resort and a bathing village. Jonathan was known for being benevolent and kind, hospitable and social which makes it all the more fitting that today we are welcoming you into his home and offering the same old fashion hospitality.
