Property description

You're sure to enjoy your stay in our lovely, freshly painted inside and out cottage with new porch windows and eclectic décor. The cottage is surrounded by lush, beautiful gardens, tranquil water features and an old-fashion tree swing. It sits just steps from the bay and the best sunsets you can imagine.Your coffee will still be hot when you step down to the beach to read the morning paper and do some dolphin watching. After you arrive back at the cottage from a day at the beach, perhaps you will want to surround yourself with nature by relaxing in our lovely butterfly and hummingbird gardens.You can grill up lunch and enjoy it in the screen house. Just picture yourself enjoying pre-dinner cocktails on the pond terrace listening to the sounds of the waterfall. After watching the sunset, you and the family can gather around the firepit and roast some marshmallows and listen to the distant horn of the ferry. Creating great meals right at the cottage is a delight with our chef's kitchen and you can enhance your favorite dishes by helping yourself to the various organic herbs and edible flowers that I grow. Feel comfortable knowing that I do not use any chemicals anywhere in the garden.

Our natural bay-beach is just steps away, FREE, and abounds with wildflowers, dune grasses, butterflies, and dolphins. Whether it's for morning coffee, sunbathing, fishing or crabbing off the jetties, or a glass of wine in the evening, you will find the bay calling to you to enjoy it's many pleasures...beautiful sunsets, dolphin sightings, beach glass hunting , fishing or bird watching. Our lovely beach has warm, calm waters perfect for swimming and keeping an eye on the little ones.
There is always something to do, or you can just do nothing. Music, fun, tropical drinks and casual food just blocks away at the beach bar at Harpoon Henry's or at the many fine restaurants in Cape May. Wildlife preserves for bird watching are minutes away, Wildwood boardwalk 15 minutes, Cape May 10 minutes, the Zoo is 15 minutes away, and several wineries just 2 minutes away. Our area of the Jersey shore has something to entertain everyone and every vacation interest.

Beach chairs, umbrella and sand toys for the little ones are provided. You will love our spacious, private outdoor shower under the trees, the screen house, lovely water feature, and you can even do some bird watching right from your chair in the garden. If you are looking to ride the waves in Cape May, we have complimentary beach tags for you, too.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Some of the best memories we are creating are right here with family and friends in Townbank. For me, there are so many relaxing, pleasurable activities such as biking on the flat, picturesque roads, walking the beautiful, natural beaches, enjoying the gardens, kayaking, and shopping the specialty shops of Cape May. Leisure time can also be spent hunting for 'treasures' at the many antique shops and yard sales. We enjoy the family oriented neighborhood, quaint country church for Sunday services, great wines right out of the boutique vineyards nearby and wonderfully fresh local produce and seafood right off the boat! Cape May is known for its local artisans who provide wholesome breads, wildflower honey, organic vegetables, wines and beach plum specialties. I don't use chemicals in the gardens, so feel free to help yourself to my many herbs for your dishes, edible greens and flowers, or just watch the birds enjoy the blueberries!

Why the Owner Chose Town Bank, Lower Township, NJ, USA:
It only took one visit to Townbank and we were hooked. You, too, will fall in love with this quaint family community of single homes on tree lined roads with some of the oldest and largest trees in South Jersey. My family used to come here when I was a child and it hasn't changed very much since then. We fell in love with our cottage in the village of Townbank, bought it immediately, and have been working on it lovingly ever since. We enjoy every moment being there and so will you. You won't want to leave, I promise!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
What we love about our cottage's location is the proximity to historic Cape May. A lovely seaside resort resplendent with beautiful Victorican homes, wonderful shopping, sightseeing and whaling excursions. If you enjoy the excitement of the rides and games on the boardwalk,then you will love Wildwood...we are so close, yet so far from the those maddening crowds. In Townbank, we have absolutely no problems with traffic, parking, or late-night revelers. You'll have crickets, cicadas and the distant horn of the ferry to serenade you while you're star watching around the fire pit. Not really a beach person, but still want to experience a great getaway? You can have nature take you away by just spending time in our shaded, lush gardens. We decorated the cottage comfortably so you will feel right at home. If you miss one of Townbank's world-famous sunsets, don't worry, we have a beautiful 25' mural of a gorgeous sunset that you can see anytime...night or day. Come spend your vacation in our very special, very peaceful Garden Cottage by the Bay.
