About Thomas Fox, Colleen Fox
My wife and I grew up in the Philadelphia area and live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Since purchasing our home fifteen years ago, we've offered our home to guests mainly during the summer months. Our growing family uses it throughout the off season. Recently, when we were away on vacation, we noted a quote which describes our rental experiences : " a stranger is a friend you haven't met yet. - Anonymous". We are appreciative of the many relationships developed with “ guests” who have vacationed at the Fox Den . We welcome the chance to speak with you.

Why Thomas Fox, Colleen Fox chose Historic District
Because Cape May is uniquely a "year round" seashore community our family fell in love with the town, the activities, and events offered throughout the four seasons. There is something to do for all four generations in our family. Since purchasing our home, we've been delighted that so many families make the "Fox Den" their vacation home year after year. From our experience, vacation time can create wonderful memories. We work hard to offer a great product with the hope that the Fox Den feels like a "home away from home" for you.
What makes this House unique
Our home feels beachy! Weather you are sitting on the porch, the comfy denim couches, or taking an outside shower under the stars, you know you are at a beach home on vacation. Being able to walk anywhere in town is so enjoyable! Our grandkids love being able to walk to the beach, grocery store, ice cream store, and mini golf. Our guests love being able to walk to restaurants, pick up a bottle of wine and relax in the backyard conversation pit after a busy Cape May day. Because there are bedrooms, laundry facilities, and family rooms on both floors, our home is great for multiple generations or families.

This home is perfection! It is in the best beach destination, Cape May! Perfect location, we have a short walk to the shopping mall, restaurants, grocery store, liquor store, hardwear store and bike rental shop. It is close to everything yet at the end of a quiet street. We always go to the BEST restaurant ever, 410 Bank Street! We have been going there ever since they opened 20 years ago. Elaine's dinner theatre is really fun too! A great restaurant the locals love is Backstreet. The home is well equipped. We love to cook and grill at the house. The decor is beautiful! Has such a beach feel. The colors are soothing. The furniture and beds are comfortable. We enjoy the new front porch, sipping our morning coffee and cocktails in the evening. The landscaping is beautiful. There are always beautiful flowers in the window boxes. The outside shower is fabulous, especially under the evening stars. The back yard has a great patio where we gather for breakfast and dinner. The patio is very private. Everything is well kept. The house is so we'll maintained. This is just an outstanding home. The owners have impeccable taste! Love it!
Repeat renters since our honeymoon in 2006
My husband and I have been coming to the Fox Den since our honeymoon in 2006. The home has such a wonderful location. It is close to everything... the beach, marina, walking mall, congress hall, restaurants, grocery store, shopping, nightlife etc. That being said, it is also on a quiet street so you can have the luxury of peace and privacy. The house is very spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well appointed and the layout is perfect. We always feels at home there! The owners are wonderful folks who really take care and pride in the property. Every year, my husband and I look forward to a week away at the Fox Den. We consider it a home away from home.
Fantastic Family Vacation at the Fox Den - Can't wait to return!
The Fox Den was the perfect place for our family getaway in Cape May! The home is bright, clean, and full of character. It's evident that the owners take great pride in making this seaside escape comfortable. The attention to detail and thoughtful decor make you feel right at home. We found the property, especially the kitchen, fully equipped for a family on vacation. We spent a week here with another family and the layout is wonderful for being able to spend time together in the great room, but still have options for your own space with the front sitting room, spacious bedrooms, and upstairs family room. My husband I especially enjoyed the sitting room off of the front porch - just like the description states it's perfect for morning coffee and evening appetizers! The kids just loved the" bunk bed room" upstairs, complete with reading lights for bedtime.There is also ample space in the backyard (with a huge picnic table) which was ideal for bbq dinners.
The location is great, we were able to take full advantage of all of Cape May's quaint shops and wonderful restaurants nearby. We also enjoyed biking to the Lighthouse and Sunset Beach - there's a bike rental shop just down the street from the house so no need to bring our bikes down. For those that like BYOBs, there are plenty within walking distance of the house and Collier's wine is conveniently located along the walk into town. And for families with children (and all of the beach gear that comes with them) the stocked storage box at the beach is extremely handy and certainly a plus. We also appreciated the beach tags that were included with our stay.
We found this home to have everything we look for in a vacation down the shore and we will most definitely be staying here again. Thanks Fox Den!
Ideal Vacation Home
We fell in love with the Fox Den the first time we walked in and have been returning every June for the last seven years. The home is beautifully decorated in a beach theme and meticulously maintained both inside and out. The owners are continually updating and improving the property, last year they added a second floor with two additional bedrooms, 2 more bathrooms and another washer and dryer. The home is fully equipped with everything you need especially the kitchen. If you enjoy eating and/or relaxing outside the private fenced in back yard has a grill, umbrella table & chairs, and lounge chairs. For your convenience there is also a storage box with beach chairs, umbrella, beach cart, etc. The house is located on a quiet street. It's a short walk to the grocery store, the Washington Street Mall and the beach. Staying for a week at the Fox Den is the highlight of our summer each year.
