We were in Cape May for our daughter's wedding. We needed a house to accommodate our large family. The house couldn't have been more perfect. Every bedroom was beautiful each with their own bathroom. We filled every bed in house and it was virtually soundproof. Wonderful porch with plenty of seating and a huge tv in the family room. The house was spotless, amazing and very well located. The owner was lovely. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Incredible home for a large group!!

  • 5 of 5

My family has had at least 6 family reunions in Cape May - our family is scattered around the country but we always seem to come back to CM. The John F. Craig House is, by far, the most incredible home we have ever stayed in. It has 9 bedrooms with bathrooms, a huge entertainment room; large dining room,, small library, sunroom, living room and 2 kitchens. Oh, and did I mention the front porch for relaxing and watching the carriage rides go by or the back yard with several umbrella tables and a large modern grill! Plus there is ample parking for up to 7 cars ( none of which you will need once you arrive - everything is within walking distance). I rarely write reviews but I could not help myself - this house is amazing. If you do not want to rent it, at least take a stroll past to take a look - you will not be sorry.

Owner's Response: Thanks for you very nice review! We love our renters and we strive to help make your stay wonderful. We are always trying to update so the house always looks fresh. Not an easy task for a 1866 home but we manage to do it. Please come back again! Lori Lazan

Great for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in the house for 1 week as part of our family reunion! Each room has its own bathroom and air-conditioning unit. There were 23 of us aged 6-81and we all fit comfortably and had a great time!!! Plenty of seating to eat inside or outside. Easy walk to the beach, shopping and enjoying Cape May with all of its history and beauty. No real need for a car since all is so very conveniently close. House came with some beach passes - not enough for all of us - but we were able to get weekly passes for those who needed them that were not very expensive. Lori, the owner, was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend this house to anyone and would love to stay in it again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very nice review. Reading that people enjoyed their stay makes my day. We really do want people to enjoy and have a hassle free stay. And we are always updating the house. We are currently putting in a new floor in the second kitchen to give it a newer look. Please come back again... we are open year round. Every season has something fun to explore in Cape May!

NA gem in cape May

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a comfortable rental for a large group? Something different and unique?

This is the place. It has everything. Lots of bedrooms and privacy with each room having their own bathroom. The entertainment room allows everyone plenty of space to move around and enjoy the large TV. Plenty of kitchen space for cooking.

The front porch is the place to be. The house is on the carriage and trolley route so the view is great. You don't have to move your car because you are in close walking distance to the outside shopping mall, restaurants, grocery store, beach, and sightseeing. This is a wonderful rental property that is well kept and clean.
