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.

A lovely property with lots of room for all
We really enjoyed our stay at the "Farm House" it was quiet and peaceful with lots of room to roam freely. Everything was as expected for an older property with plenty of extras! Our kids loved the tree swings! Just be careful on a non windy day back at the bay, the flys will attack by the hundreds!
We'll come gain!
We loved staying in the farmhouse. It was perfect for our extended family and the setting is amazing. We loved all the sweet touches that make the house truly unique. Thanks, Lila, for making our stay so pleasant!
Thank you, Janet!
I enjoyed meeting your family!
A great place to get away from it all! Lots of privacy and direct access to Delaware Bay.
This is a lovely, quaint farm house that is well equipped for a gathering of family or friends. We held a family reunion with 11 adults, and it suited us fine since we were all willing to share bedrooms and bathrooms. Although advertised to sleep 12, be sure to check the photos of the rooms and beds to see the situation, and plan ahead. We were a bit lucky in that one person could not attend, which allowed us more flexibility in the sleeping accommodations. The location is not exactly close to the busy beaches on the Atlantic coast side, but does provide direct Delaware Bay beach access, which is lovely and private. We really enjoyed the kitchen with all the cookware/dishware we could need to cook meals for us all, as well as the outdoor patio with gas grill, and the screened-in elevated deck. Fresh seafood purchased from Junior's within walking distance allowed for an outdoor grilled feast! The outdoor shower is a huge plus for rinsing off after a day at the beach, and has both hot and cold running water. It was great having beach chairs and umbrellas available for use, but the bikes were for kids only. Would give it 5 stars but for the fact that the location near the swampy woods is a bit buggy (the owners do try to control the mosquitos with "mosquito magnets"), and quite near to the main road such that the bedrooms facing east are a bit noisy with traffic even at night (if you are a light sleeper, be forewarned).
Thank you for your thoughtful review, Daniel! And for being good to our farmhouse, we're very happy you enjoyed yourselves (and the outdoor shower) :-)
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 Cape May County Park and Zoo is WONDERFUL for a family outing - located 15 minutes from the farmhouse.
