About Kathleen Drake

My family and I live just outside of Baltimore, Maryland. We spend as much time as we can in Cape May!

Kathleen Drake purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Kathleen Drake chose Cape May

This was my childhood vacation home. I have many fond memories of Cape May and my husband and I were married on the beach in Cape May. This home is being lovingly restored and updated so that we may enjoy it for many years to come.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is a Sears Kit House built in the 1930s and renovated in 2014. We believe this house is a one of kind rental opportunity in historic Cape May. You can enjoy the beauty of an older home with a completely new interior.

We love staying here when we visit Cape May!

This is our second year staying here because we love the house so much and Kathy is easy to work with and helpful. This house is updated, clean and the location is perfect - three blocks from the beach and shopping/restaurants. We rarely use our car, which is a nice treat - we walked everywhere! Our favorite part of the house other than location is the porch. Many wonderful early mornings and relaxing afternoons were spent there. We look forward to visiting again next year!

Perfect quiet, peaceful house to be bride headquarters for my wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My parents rented this house for the week of my wedding and it was the perfect location to be close to the church and Congress Hall, as well as quiet/peaceful place to recharge amid all the wedding chaos. The house was spotless, completely updated, and I can't thank Kathy (the owner) enough for being so helpful and accommodating! Hope to be back there soon :)

This house is exactly as described in the listing and the previous reviews: new, super-clean, and in a great location. The owner quickly responded to any questions.

It was perfect for our "girls of a certain age" get-together. It was especially nice to have a house with a screened porch on non-beach days.

Highly recommend!

Amazing Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing vacation at this wonderful beach house. We would highly recommend this property to others looking for a very relaxing stay in Cape May, NJ. The home is beautifully decorated and is in walking distance to many restaurants, beach and to the shopping district. The owner is very helpful and responds very quickly to any questions you may have.
