Fodor’s named Ocean Grove one of the 15 Best Beaches in the World in 2014. Good Housekeeping Magazine ranked Ocean Grove one of the best beach towns in America in 2017. Why? Because Ocean Grove is easily one of the most eye-catching beach towns you will ever see. Victorian architecture is a major draw of the area as is the beach and boardwalk. The downtown district—with cute shops and restaurants—is just two blocks from the famed boardwalk. You go to the Shore for the beach and Ocean Grove’s is pristine. It’s popular with families for its annual sandcastle and kite-flying contests, volleyball games, and boogey board races. Ocean Grove is a one-hour drive from Manhattan and Philadelphia, or you can take the train, bus or high-speed ferry from Manhattan.

Also be sure to check out our great prices for the remarkably beautiful months of September & October. During September & October, the sunlight at the Jersey Shore transforms into a thick, plush, gold. It’s not your imagination, the light really is different and at its most beautiful of the year. The lively beer gardens, bars and restaurants in Asbury Park have great events planned all Fall - like Oktoberfest at the Festhalle & Biergarten - just a five minute walk from Chadwick Cottage. Other great fall events in Ocean Grove include: the Giant Fall Flea Market on Sep 9, the British Car Show on Sep 16, the Fall Harvest Festival & Craft Show on Oct 7, the Halloween Parade for Pets & Kids on Oct 28.

Ocean Grove is also the perfect storybook village to celebrate the Fall & Winter holidays. The town sparkles with holiday lights and decorations and the shops in Ocean Grove and Asbury Park offer creative holiday gifts. The Asbury Park Holiday Bazaar runs from late November through mid December and transforms Convention Hall into a winter wonderland with twinkling lights, hot cider, mulled wine, live music, Santa photos and a Christmas Market of great holiday gifts. Everything you need to get into the holiday spirit. The Victorian Holiday Festival and House Tour in Ocean Grove is on Dec 9 - 10. On New Year's Eve, there is a beautiful Black Tie Masquerade Ball in Asbury Park at the Grand Arcade in Convention Hall.

Girls' Getaway Weekend in Ocean Grove is Feb 23 - 25, 2018 and offers Cooking Classes, Wine Tastings & Spa Packages.

Chocolate Lovers' Weekend in Ocean Grove is March 11 - 12, 2017 & probably March 10 - 11, 2018. It offers chocolate indulgences at all the Restaurants, Inns & Shops in town plus Spa Packages.

Chadwick Cottage is an historic Queen Anne Victorian built in 1882. It is available as both a Vacation Rental and as a Filming Location. It was completely restored, updated and professionally decorated and landscaped in 2001. It's located in Ocean Grove, NJ - a National Historic District. Chadwick Cottage is just a two minute walk to all the quaint shops & restaurants on Ocean Grove's Main Avenue. And it's just a quick five minute walk across the charming footbridge over Wesley Lake to all the hip bars, restaurants, shops, art galleries, theaters & music venues in Asbury Park. There are also tons of great activities for kids: Surfing Lessons at the Summertime Surf School, Arcade Games at the Silverball Museum (180 games - pinball, skeeball, video games), Asbury Splash Park, Asbury Miniature Golf, Glassblowing workshops at the Hot Sand glassblowing studio, Paint Your Own Ceramics at the Git Fired Up ceramics studio, etc. It's no wonder that Fodor's named Ocean Grove as one of its 15 Best Beaches for 2014.

This home is 2,000 square feet. It has a large, shaded front porch and side porch that overlook beautiful plantings. This home is just a 55 minute drive to Midtown Manhattan and is also just a five minute walk to Asbury Park, NJ - with all it's great restaurants & bars and it's amazing live music scene. Both Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi got their starts playing in Asbury Park at the Stone Pony.

Chadwick Cottage has two wood burning fireplaces - one in the living room and another in the dining room. So Chadwick Cottage is the perfect place to get away all four seasons of the year - Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring.

On the first floor, this beautiful, spacious home features a large foyer with a front staircase and powder room, a living room with a corner fireplace and stained glass windows, a dining room with a corner fireplace, stained glass windows and a glass pass-thru to the cook's kitchen. The kitchen features custom glass cabinetry, a double under-mount sink with garbage disposal, extensive marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. Off the kitchen, there is a bar room perfect for mixing cocktails and brewing morning coffee, this room also features an under-mount sink, extensive marble countertops, a professional ice-maker, and custom cabinetry including a pantry that hides a full-sized front-loading stacked washer and dryer. Also off the kitchen is a large back foyer that contains antique cabinetry and a back staircase.

Upstairs features four private bedrooms, two of these bedrooms feature queen-sized beds and stained glass windows, two feature full-sized beds. Each bedroom features either extensive clothes closets or large wardrobes and dressers. There is also a large linen closet and a storage closet. Upstairs also has two beautiful full bathrooms.

This house is situated in Ocean Grove, NJ one of the Jersey Shore's finest year-round seaside resorts. Known as 'the Jewel of the Jersey Shore,' Ocean Grove has the highest concentration of authentic Victorian architecture in the country. This national historic treasure offers one square mile of natural beauty, including pristine beaches, tree-lined streets, serene boardwalk and parks, music & lecture programs, unique eateries, and a quaint shopping district.

Located along the beach, Ocean Grove is strategically situated at the geographic center of the Jersey Shore with Sandy Hook to the north and Atlantic City to the south, and all of the Shore's attractions within easy access. Only an hour’s drive from Manhattan (to the north) and 90 minutes from Philadelphia (to the south), Ocean Grove is a weekend, summer, and year-round destination for domestic and international travelers. Ocean Grove is also easily accessible by train and bus via New Jersey Transit. Newark Airport is the closest airport and the NJ Transit train runs from Newark Airport to Asbury Park, NJ - that train station is just a nine minute walk from Chadwick Cottage. Perhaps the most fun way to get between NYC and Ocean Grove is to take the Seastreak Ferry from East 35th Street or Wall Street to Atlantic Highlands, NJ and then grab an Uber from there to Chadwick Cottage in Ocean Grove. The ferry ride takes about 40 minutes. The Uber ride takes about 30 minutes. The ferry costs $21 to $27 and the Uber runs about $60 for up to six people. The ferry ride travels under the Verrazano Bridge and directly past the Statue of Liberty.

Summertime in Ocean Grove is filled with arts and craft shows, giant flea markets, guided historical walking tours, house tours, performances by famous named artists at the legendary Great Auditorium and much more. Having expanded into a town for all seasons, Ocean Grove now holds events year round to celebrate the uniqueness of this Victorian town, such as The Victorian House Tour in December, Chocolate Lovers Weekend in February, and the Garden State Film Festival in April. A stroll along Main Avenue anytime of the year is a rich reminder of Victorian life with its many quaint gift shops and antique stores. The Ocean Grove Boardwalk connects to the Bradley Beach Boardwalk to the south and the beautiful and hopping Asbury Park Boardwalk to the north with its shops, restaurants, chic lounges, casual bars and other entertainment venues.

The Asbury Park Boardwalk and Cookman Avenue Shopping District host Summer Bonfires on the beach (Fridays in June, Wednesdays in July & August) and everyday amusements such as pinball at the Silverball Museum, a whimsical WaterPark for kids, a miniature golf course, and glass-blowing at Hot Sand. The music scene in Asbury Park also remains a staple for visitors. The famed Stone Pony which launched the careers of Bruce Springsteen and John Bon Jovi continues to be a sentimental favorite while Convention Hall, Wonder Bar, The Saint, Paramount Theatre and green spaces along the boardwalk play host to bands and other performers year-round. There is not a day that goes by without live music in Asbury Park.

Many guests at our house like to rent bicycles at the Ocean Grove Hardware Store on Main Avenue in Ocean Grove or at Brielle Cyclery on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. The area's flat terrain makes for easy riding for people of all ages.

Amazing week in Ocean Grove!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve rented for years in Ocean Grove And Chadwick cottage is by far the best. Jim has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. The house is gorgeous and really feels like a beach getaway. The house is fully stocked with everything you’ll need to hit the beach, cook a fabulous meal or just relax at home. The beach is a nice walk down Mt Hermon. The location was perfect. One block to Main Street to get coffee, eat, shop and a 5 minute walk to Asbury across a bridge right onto Cookman Ave. Was a perfect week!! We’ll be back!

Beautiful home in Ocean Grove

  • 5 of 5

Several of us stayed at Chadwick Cottage and had a wonderful time. The house is extremely comfortable and the location is second to none in that area. It was very hot when we visited and the house stays perfectly cool with the window units, we were all very happy. Our host thought of everything to make the stay comfortable...I would stay again in a minute and I will. Top notch rental!

Excellent in every way.

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the property the moment we entered the house. Every consideration was made for a wonderful stay. The property was provisioned with every conceivable need of the renter. We were there during a snow storm and the owner's generosity of spirit was extraordinary. We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this far exceeded our expectations. We had a fantastic vacation.

Beautiful Queen Anne style home, lots of room, large kitchen, walkable to beach and town.

  • 5 of 5

My family celebrated Christmas at Chadwick Cottage in Ocean Grove. We have visited the town many times, and love walking along the beach, seeing the lovely Victorian homes. Staying in December was new, and the family enjoyed it all - exploring Asbury Park, walking along the beaches, making meals together in the lovely big kitchen. The owner was great to work with, and provided a very thoughtful guide to, for example, understanding the heating system, using the dish washer, finding logs for the fireplace along with recommendations for activities and restaurants nearby. This worked so well, I look forward to coming again!

A beautiful historic house, completely up to date.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was enjoyable. Perfect for a girls weekend. We walked every where. The owner provided an extensive orientation guide that left no question. Two of the bedrooms were pretty small and tight for two people. We didn't really use the tv, but if someone wanted to it's very small. The historic claw foot tub was gorgeous but not practical for showering purposes, which made it challenging for 8 women essentially using the other stand up

Shower. We really enjoyed the porch and sat out there a lot. We will come back to this lovely home.
