About Lila Lamanna
We have been offering unique holiday rentals on our property since 1989. We enjoy sharing our farmhouse with guests who come to Cape May County to enjoy our county's lush meadowlands, beaches, woodlands and wild life.
Lila Lamanna purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1984
Why Lila Lamanna chose Cape May Court House
We offer this property as a vacation rental because of its unique central location in a private setting. The Delaware Bay beachfront is enjoyed as a wonderful alternative to the hustle and bustle of the neighboring ocean front communities.

We just concluded our one week stay at the farmhouse, and it was amazing! The beauty of the grounds made it hard to even leave the home, and before we knew it, the week was up. Our children especially loved looking for wildlife and array of butterflies that frequent the array of foliage (when they weren't too busy with the kiddie pool). Lila and Steve are fantastic hosts, very friendly and attentive; they even let us know we could check in earlier (we were running behind ourselves though). We slept 7 adults and 4 children with ease and comfort. The split-system A/C was great for individuals' preferences. Between the bikes, boogie boards, sidewalk chalk, kitchen, linens, etc, Lila and Steve really thought of everything. Thanks so much for an amazing stay!
Thank you, Joe! We so enjoyed watching you all enjoy yourselves! And we are very glad to hear you were comfortable... Your children are a delight! It is a pleasure to every once in a while find a way to facilitate an earlier check in... (not always possible) ;-) Yes, that air conditioning system was a good decision! We look forward to seeing you again - your family will always be as welcome as the flowers in May!!!
Spacious farm house with beautiful garden.
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the farm house. The house was spacious and we loved the garden. We have many happy memories sitting around the kitchen table catching up with extended family during our daughter’s wedding weekend.
Thank you! It was a delight to share our farmhouse with you during such an important occasion for your daughter and family. We wish her and her husband a long and happy union!
Cool, Comfy, Country Getaway
We loved our visit at Steve and Lila's place!
Staying in their farmhouse proved to be exactly what our family needed: a place to call home for a few days.
Things we loved: Lila's beautiful flower gardens which she tended beautifully and which added a tremendous amount of surrounding beauty, the fenced in patio for children, the vast array of lawn sports activities, the big kitchen with plenty of pots and pans to cook for a large crowd, and cook we did! We also appreciated the working air conditioning since it was quite hot and humid the week we were there.
The house is within easy driving distance to shore destinations, great ice-cream and shopping if needed. We enjoyed going out for a few hours and retreating to the coolness of the farmhouse. Excellent beds too!
Thank you to Steve and Lila for a homey and lovely property to rekindle relationships with a far-flung family.
This is a lovely old farmhouse, gracious, comfortable and welcoming.
We had 7 adults and 5 children, with room for everyone. The walk to the beach was perfect; even our 4-year old did it. The beach was ideal for kids. The kitchen was well-stocked and easy to work in. There were several "nook and cranny" places both inside and out. Our kids (4 to 12) were never bored and enjoyed the beach, the grounds, and all the nearby attractions. Steve and Lila are wonderful hosts and we couldn't have had a warmer welcome. It was a vacation to remember!
Thank you!! We feel happy and blessed to receive your review! We appreciate your "nook and cranny" comment. It was a delight to have the Sinnott family at the farmhouse! And our housekeeper was pleasantly surprised to receive the tip you left for her. That was most thoughtful and nice!! Gratefully, Lila and Steve
The perfect getaway to destress and just relax!
Lila and Steve could not have been more lovely to deal with - even when things weren't perfect, the way they handled it was! The house is very well appointed and comfortable.
My dogs, family and I had a lovely stay at their home and hope that we can again soon!
Thank you Lila and Steve for sharing your home!
Beautiful property and farmhousee with private bay beach
The Lamannas are the nicest people with the nicest home. Conveniently located for wildwood and cape may and local breweries. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed last week. Will absolutely be back.
Well, thank you, Neil! Yes, the farmhouse is in a great central location for our local amenities. Thanks for pointing that out! We totally enjoyed having you here and your family too (including the four leggeds). We very much look forward to your return! Pippin sends his regards :-)
The Cape May County Park and Zoo is WONDERFUL for a family outing - located 15 minutes from the farmhouse.
