Property description

The Laughlin House has been passed down and enjoyed by our family for four generations. In fact, we still vacation there every year! In our family, the home is a magical place where we can go to relax, unwind and make wonderful memories. We love being able to share our home and our love of Stone Harbor with other families as they make their own vacation memories.

The Laughlin House offers both the modern comforts and amenities of a newer house and the classic grandeur and charm of an historic island home. Between the home’s unique features, the convenience of its location, the spaciousness of the property, and all of the amenities we offer, you are sure to give your family a truly one-of-a-kind vacation with memories that will last a lifetime!

================================================================

The Laughlin House is Located at: 211 103 rd Street, Stone Harbor, NJ 08247

================================================================

The town of Stone Harbor is at the southern end of 7-mile island right off the southern coast of New Jersey. The town widely regarded as a vacation retreat for both affluent and middle-class family's from New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C. and Delaware. It is great town to enjoy all of the benefits of the shore without any of the problems of over-crowding, excessive noise or crime that can cause problems for vacationers on the other islands in the area.

The Laughlin House is located 1 1/2 blocks from the beach, 1 block from the bay, and 7 blocks south of the island's shopping district. All are in easy walking distance for guests. The Laughlin house is located between Second and Third Avenue, on a very quiet, residential street.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1956

About the owner: The mansion was originally designed by my grandmother Helen V. Laughlin and built by my grandfather John S. Laughlin who moved to Stone Harbor in 1939 and ran a general store on 96th Street from 1939-1984. Helen taugh school on the island and John sat on the town's Board of education for many years. At the time construction was completed in 1956, the home was the largest residence on the island. My family has over 50 years experience caring for the property and making sure that our guests enjoy the best experience possible during their stay in our home. To that extent, the house continues to this day to be fully occupied each year during the summer season and we enjoy that each year as much as 80% of our guests return guests each year.
