Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My husband and I live only 45 minutes from our vacation house near the ocean beaches of Cape May County, NJ, but choose to spend as much time as possible at the 'other' Jersey Shore, in the Delaware Bay side community of Fortescue. We have found a quiet, natural world and friendly people in Fortescue and believe that once anyone visits, they'll want to return.
