About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)Screened front porch w/table &Chairs.

An individual, typical, seashore cottage by the sea all on one floor. A very comfortable, home like atmosphere. It is located one block behind the Port O Call hotel and is a short 1 1/2 blocks to the beach and wooden, 2 1/2 mile boardwalk. It is just 8 miles south of Atlantic City and 20 minutes north of Wildwwod and 30 minutes north of Cape May, N.J. Also just an hour from Historic Philadelphia, home of the Liberty Bell and Philadelphia Eagles. This makes a great day trip for the whole family.

Keep in mind that you may rent 'Pelican Roost' for a beautiful week or week-end (3 day minimum) in the Fall. Warm days and cool restful nights. Some folks consider this the best time of the year at the shore with less crowds. Our Fall Block Party is Saturday October 8,2016. This is certainly a fun day for everyone! Call for more information.

About jeannette herrman

We are a couple who have enjoyed our time here with family and friends very much. It was close to the beach and just the right size for our family. Also we have a great neighborhood with wonderful neighbors.

jeannette herrman purchased this cottage in 1975

Why jeannette herrman chose Ocean City

We discovered Ocean City as grown-ups and wish we

could have vacationed here as childen. We fell in love

with the area and looked for an individual Ocean City

cottage near the beach and boardwalk. The short 1 1/2

blocks is not far to walk with young children and beach gear.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the people of O.C. and meeting the families who

come here with their children for the family atmosphere. All during the summer there are activities for children as well as their parents and also a well guarded safe beach.

Two other unique benefits are the many programs and

Pops Orchestra concerts every week at the Music Pier

next to the beach. The second is our interfaith

Tabernacle, which seats over 2,000 at the 8:30 and

10:30 services every Sunday with Sunday school and child care at each service. Also special programs and concerts during the week. Each Sunday there are

inspiring messages from pastors around the country !

Adorable little shore house. Very well stocked with every thing you could possibly need. Loved the screened in porch . Very short walk to the beach. Loved that it's a single home.

Great place for younger families; friendly owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (which included a 4 and 5 year old) along with my father in law had a wonderful stay here. SO CLOSE to the boardwalk, beach and shops (little grocery store, ice cream shop) that even my 2 boys could ride their little bikes or walk everywhere. Street is very quiet and evenings on the porch were heavenly. Jeanette and her husband are very friendly and prompt and were even willing to work with us when our stay was cut short by a family emergency back home. We highly recommend and will look forward to staying again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at the Pelican Roost. There were 4 adults and 1 child. We absolutely loved the front porch and having breakfast out there every morning. And the location was great – near the beach and the beginning of the boardwalk. Very cozy and well-equipped. We certainly hope to come back again next summer.

We Loved The Roost!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a week at the Pelican Roost. There were four adults, and two children. There is plenty of room - four good sized bedrooms, 1.5 baths and an outdoor shower, screened-in front porch, small back porch with seating.

It isn't a fancy place, but it was clean and comfortable. We did not use the A/C window units. The ceiling fans and ocean breeze was sufficient. The house is well shaded.

The location is a two block from the boardwalk and beach, and a short walk from local in-town eateries and conveniences. The house is at 15th Street. The boardwalk shops end at 14th Street. So you are close to the action, without being in the middle of the hectic traffic and parking and noise.

We will be back to OC and we will stay at The Roost again!

Great Place For a Family Vacation at the Shore

  • 5 of 5

Staying here (5 of us) was almost like staying in your own home. Listing and photos were very accurate. It was very clean, had 4 nice size bedrooms (one with a TV), 1.5 baths, a living room with comfortable furniture and a nice flat screen tv, and a kitchen that contained everything you would ever need in case you forgot to bring something. Air conditioners worked fine. My personal favorite was the screened-in front porch which was great for just sitting and relaxing, or for playing cards. Also had a back deck and parking for 2 cars which often came in handy. Only 2 blocks to the beach. Owners were very nice and accomodating. I highly recommend staying at this "home".
