Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: I have spent every summer of my life in Cape May and met my husband here! The warm, welcoming people of Cape May have become some of our dearest friends in our favorite place. We look forward to sharing this very special island with you.

Why Cape May:
My family has been summering in Cape May for over 100 years! Really - we recently found a family photo taken in Cape May dated 1908. With a history like that, where else would we go?

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quick walk to the beach - we love surfing at Queen Street Beach, kayaking at AquaTrails, stand-up paddle boarding at the Cove, sunbathing and beach combing. Take advantage of our beach box at Gram's on Jefferson Beach, why carry your stuff back and forth each day? Great restaurants. Tuesdays at the West Cape May Farmer's Market. Bike everywhere!
