Downstairs renovations include relocation of the interior stairs, a new entry, new half bath, renovated and expanded kitchen and more open space and flow on the first floor. We are working hard to preserve the charm and historic integrity (all wooden windows, etc.) of the home while adding modern conveniences (a dishwasher) and updated amenities. New pictures will be coming when the work is completed. Expected completion date is March 30, 2017. For now, please check-out the old photos and know that the description below is accurate.

About Christine Carlson-Glazer

Having grown up in the area, my husband and I know what a special place the Point is. We left the area to attend college and graduate school and employment opportunities landed us in the Princeton area. Soon after our oldest was born, we purchased our Point home and, while we live in Princeton, our hearts are in the Point.

Christine Carlson-Glazer purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Christine Carlson-Glazer chose Southern Shore Region

The Point is a small area to begin with, just 0.6 square miles, and when we began looking to purchase a home, our search area was even smaller. We wanted to be close to the circle (and General Store), Lake Lilly (where my husband proposed to me) and St. Peter's (our favorite beach). There were only a few streets we were interested in. We looked for more than a year, just when we turned our attention to other things in life, the home we have now came on the market in November 2000. I was ready to purchase, sight unseen because the location was just PERFECT, but seeing the home and feeling the charm confirmed this was our house. Since then, we have shared this special place with guests, friends and family.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Location is perfect, the porch amazing, stars on a clear night - shine like diamonds and the sunsets - so beautiful.

Lovely stay - can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, friends and I had a wonderful stay at Cape May Point. I'd only been to cape may once or twice, but was glad to discover the point, which is more tucked away and relaxing than most shore destinations in the area - perfect for what we were looking for! Christine's house is beautiful, and newly renovated - a perfect stay! As a host, Christine was incredibly helpful, providing insider tips, and very reachable during our stay. When we couldn't find a cutting board one day, she had one sent over to the house within minutes! You won't go wrong with this choice.

Perfect house for the Point

  • 5 of 5

We love this house!

We have been coming to Cape May Point off and on for over 30 years with our family and friends. This house feels less like a rental and more like the house of a favorite aunt or uncle who are letting us use it for our vacation. We received extra TLC in several ways. Ahead of time we got a wonderful note explaining many activities and places in the area to explore. There were some old favorite spots of ours as well as some new spots that we didn't even know about - Lots of good info! And we were generously provided with 2 new adult bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and beach tags to use during our stay.

The house itself is not a modern, luxurious hotel-like house, but a lovely seashore house that conveys the historic charm of Cape May Point while still supplying the comfort of central air conditioning which we definitely needed on a couple of days. The location was great - a very short walk to the beach and close to the circle. The rooms were all large, bright, simply and nicely decorated, well maintained, comfortable and clean. The house is quite spacious, but our favorite "room" was the large wrap-around screened-in porch overlooking an open lawn and nicely planted garden. This space was set up with very comfortable chairs, loveseats and tables for morning coffee, some of our meals, fun board games in the evening, quiet reading etc. The porch was great!

Our experience with the owner was excellent. She was accessible and professional from signing the lease and reserving our date to returning our security deposit. And she was very available and responsive if we had any questions or problems.

I would definitely rent here again, and recommend it to friends.

Great comfortable house close to all beaches. Everything you need is there

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at this house. The house was clean and comfortable and stocked with everything you need for a great vacation including 2 bikes. The owner provided a great list of things to do around greater Cape May and inside the house were guest books with info on a local restaurants and attractions. The house has old world charm but the central AC was a blessing during a really hot spell this summer. Cape May Point is a hidden gem on the Jersey Shore and this home is the perfect place for a great vacation

Charming house, with wonderful screened in porch for family meals and just hanging out!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about this house from it's location close to the Circle/Green, Lake Lily and the beach, to its inviting rooms, to its well equipped kitchen for preparing family meals. We especially liked the screened in porch where we spent most of our time (when we weren't at the beach), eating meals, hanging out, and playing board games. It was also great to have two bicycles that came with the house -- we enjoyed our rides around the Point and up to the bread stand and Beach Plum Farm. Christine was very responsive whenever we had a question. All in all, a total thumbs up!!!

Charming, well-located house

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time in Cape May Point and really enjoyed this house. The location is hard to beat, as it is right by the Red Store and only a few blocks from the beach. The house was, if anything, even nicer than the photos--we especially enjoyed the enormous and well-furnished screened-in porch. Our host was also incredibly helpful, providing many "insider" tips that made our stay more enjoyable (helping us beat the line at Enfin Farms on bread day). The only possible downsides of this property are the small kitchen and small tub shower upstairs, but for us this is a small price to pay for the quirky charm of this home (though the taller among us did prefer the outdoor shower). Overall, we would strongly recommend this home to anyone looking for a low-key trip in the Point!

Good house for birdwatchers

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully maintained and has a great old fashioned sitting porch. Very comfortable and charming. Our primary goal was bird watching and from this location we were able to walk to some of our favorite locations including the hawk watch, Cape May State Park, South Cape May Meadows and the local ponds, dunes and beaches. The owner provided comprehensive and useful information. During the early fall the price was competitive with the Cape May motels we often stay at and we thought it was a good value.
