Owner info

Year Purchased: 1966

About the owner: Our family is only the fourth owner of our vintage Painted Lady. We pride ourselves in keeping this Victorian Gothic summer cottage true to her classic self.

Why the Owner Chose Cape May Point:
We enjoy the seaside pleasures of walking to a beautiful guarded beach, seeing the lighthouse, enjoying the water, & watching the dolphins frolic. Fresh seafood is nearby in Cape May and so are many fresh fruit and veggie stands. Culture and entertainment are two miles down Sunset Blvd. in Cape May. Atlantic City casinos are about 40 minutes north.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We enjoy the peacefulness of the Point compared to Cape May. Walking on the quiet beaches at sunset, biking or relaxing with a good book on the porch and enjoying the bounty of seafood and fresh produce makes for an rejuvenating experience.
