Cape May house description

Our tenants love the location of this house. You can see the beach promenade 2 blks straight ahead. Wide tree lined street, upobstructed views of the ocean from the second floor (it is still 2 blocks away), walk to resturants, shops and attractions 1-2 blocks. We are also a favorite of the horse/buggy tours. Be prepared to be entertained on the porch! Many of our tenants walk by and say 'we could have stayed there!.' Now they are repeat tenants. Please contact us for full details. Read rates below and in 'notes.' Photos were difficult because of size of rooms (most photos only show 2/3 of the space). Unique property. This is your chance to rent a colorful historic victorian at the shore. This house is a rare offering with beautiful furnishings, 7-8 brs and 5.5 baths (yes 5.5 baths!). It was an upscale B&B and it became a rental 8 years ago. Just completing a kitchen overhall in 2014. If you have a larger family, you can rent the main house and 4 cottages for a total of 11 bedrooms and 9.5 baths. A typical stay in the summer months is a week. For familys up to 16, the main house can be rented. As your group grows you can one or more cottages. We rent to families as few as 2 and as large as 32 (total of 11-12 bedrooms and 9.5 baths). Final prices are determined by the number in your family. Prices quoted are for main house. We also rent at a discount off season, so spend your holidays and weekend with us.

The common rooms and many of the bedrooms are quite large - the dining room sits at least 18! Since the living and dining rooms can open to each other and they have 12' ceilings the space is expansive (but with a home-like comfort). 3 of the 7 bedrooms are large suites are at least 23' and have sitting areas with tv. For its age, the house has good sized bedrooms, no tiny bunk rooms here.

The location is wonderful. If you sit on one of the many porch rockers and look down the street you can see the beach front promenade. We are also in the center of the hsitoric district and walking distance to shops, resturants, activities, movies (and of course the beach), and all of Cape May's history and charm. We are a favorite of the house tours, so you will see plenty of horse drawn carriages. We are a 2 block walk from just about everything.

The house is 130 years old but has undergone a major renovation in the last three years, so there is 4 zone central air conditioning, gas fireplaces, plenty of hot water and gleaming spaces. See multiple pictures on our web site. We continue to renovate and upgrade in the off season to assure the comfort of our tenants.

There is so much to do here in Cape May that you may wish to extend your stay on your second visit. Feel free to call us for more information. We hope you will choose to share this grand old house with us and make it your yearly get away. One customer recently married here stated 'Our wedding weekend was absolutely perfect. We felt like we were home away from home.'

The house is also available for weddings, family reunions, holidays, receptions, conferences and more. With additional cottages and suites we can accommodate up to 32 people. The cottage and suites (all with kitchens, private amenities and entrances) are available to be rented separately).

Off season prices for the main house (16 people) range from $1200 to $2100 for 3 nights. Weekly 2500-2800 for 7 nights. The rate per night goes down after 3 nights. Short term cleaning fees are 150-200, weekly 250-350.

Sample of weekly rates 5/31 2500, 6/7 3000, 6/14 3900, 6/21 6100, 7/5 6500, 7/19 6900, 8/2 7300, 8/23 4200, 8/30 2900, 9/6 2650. There is an additional 350 cleaning and 550 refundable security fee. Weeks not mentioned are now reserved. Additional people and additional cottages are an extra cost. Please send a quick email. I usually reply within 10 minutes.
