Why stew in the traffic and noise at the shore when you can enjoy a serene getaway with water view at a lovely nearby lake instead? Our house, built in 1922 and recently restored, has 3 bedrooms and a sleeping porch, 2 modern baths, living room with fireplace, formal dining room, new kitchen and big backyard with creek behind it, just across the street from the beach on Lake Lenape in Mays Landing, NJ. Only 20 minutes’ drive to the Boardwalk, casinos and shows whenever you want; meanwhile kick back and enjoy a low-key, peaceful get-away. The town of Mays Landing was founded in the 1600s. Cross the street and you can swim, fish, sunbathe or canoe on the lake using our canoe. Bike the streets or wander the town checking out the Lighthouse and the Revolutionary War markers. Enjoy a drink or dinner from the porch watching the sun set over the lake across the street. Shop locally for antiques, roller skate, visit the wineries or dine at any of the nice restaurants and pubs nearby. Golfing, hiking, camping, visit the Pine Barrens, Lenox china outlet, Children’s Museum, Storybook Land, Heritage Center, farm stands and Historic Village, all a short drive away. Apologies to young adults: you must be over 25 to rent this property. This is a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood, and we and our neighbors are pretty protective of it remaining that way.

What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this house with its craftsmanship and the glorious view of sunshine on the lake. The townspeople have been wonderful as we worked to fix and furnish it with a comfortable mixture of antiques and modern conveniences. In the spring and summer we love to sit on the porch and look at the lake - when we aren't in the water or riding in the canoe. In the fall we walk the trails and gather walnuts from our own trees. It's a great place to reconnect and recharge. Our children and grandchildren can visit to swim, skate or play in the playground. Yours can too!

Charming & cozy... indeed!
The 2nd time we are making use of this vacation house... and we were not disappointed! Just like the previous time, the owner was super correspondent, the house was clean with all the necessities available (and more!) So convenient with the lake just across the road with the playground for kids and the ACME grocery store (and the Hamilton mall) just 10mins drive away The local WAWA can help with that quick coffee, bread, milk, etc. Mays Landing got so much to give and some amazing treasures to find in the local antique shop just around the corner Even the wine-tasting at Balic Winery is a must! Thank you for a fabulous stay! We will definitely return... again! :-)
Thanks, Lourena, we're glad you and your family had such a great time! It's always a pleasure to hear about people enjoying their stay at the lake house. We loved having you and will be happy to have you back again any time.
Beautiful Lake View Home
Our stay here was excellent. Nancy is great to work with, very responsive, kind & genuine. The home is very cozy, clean & has everything you need for a comfortable stay! There are games, books, magazines, cable TV & plenty of space to enjoy all your family activities. The beds are the MOST comfortable beds we have ever slept in & the linens are soft and of very good quality. The bathrooms are in excellent shape with high quality rugs and plush linens. The kitchen has all the appliances & utensils you'd ever need! Some of them are, coffee maker, Crock-Pot, stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster oven (this works excellent, so much better than any toaster!), can opener, pizza cutter, casserole dishes, plates, glasses, bowels, cupcake tins, baking sheets, pots, pans, large spoons, serving utensils, silverware, mixing bowels...you name it, it's there for the most part. My kitchen at home has many things I was hoping I would have here & it did NOT disappoint. I am in the kitchen often & it has everything to make any dish you want! The sink is like brand new & the added bonus is that there is a gas stove. I could go on and on about the amazing kitchen! The living room & dining room are both very comfortable. You can fit a very large family at the main table, 10 or even more with the added table extension. The living room couch is extremely comfortable, all the various chairs are as well. We enjoyed the unique artwork throughout the home. Watching the sunrise & sunset over the lake is very peaceful. There are many different areas of the home you are able to enjoy watching this from. Our family loves this home & would definitely stay again. You are in good hands with Nancy & will feel right at home as soon as you walk in the front door!
Great house, convenient location
Our group of 2 families had a wonderful stay over Christmas, so we could be near family for the holiday. The kitchen was well stocked, though we mainly had breakfast there. The beds are quite comfortable. We would definitely try to stay there again.
Thanks Susan! We would love to have you back again!
Rustic and deceivingly large. Great yard!
Nancy was great and so was the property. Easy check in and the home has everything you can need. Highly recommended.
Thanks! You and your family were lovely guests and we would welcome you back anytime!
great location and very comfortable
nancy was really great thru the entire visit. sent emails asking if all was well and also welcomed us. she was also quick to respond when we had a minor problem ,that we caused. she helped us work it out and we were able to enjoy our stay. the house is well stocked and decorated. the beds were comfortable and everything worked as it was supposed to. my wife really enjoyed the porch, where she enjoyed the sunsets. I spent a lot of my time at the large table. room for laptop, cameras, chargers and all the the accessories I cart along. the lake would be an even bigger draw during the summer but we enjoyed the view in October. plenty of places to eat , in the area and wawa's for a quick coffee and pastries. very quiet area and no problem sleeping at night. again nancy thank you and would stay at your home again. thanks jim + deb from Pennsylvania.
Thanks, Jim! It was lovely having you and your wife. We would welcome you back at any time!
Well equipped and comfortable.
We had a lovely stay. Very quiet area but close enough to the beaches and other entertainment to keep teenagers busy. The beach across the road was clean and the lake water warm in August. The boys thought the canoe was great fun. A perfectly relaxed week at the end of a busy trip to America.
Thanks so much! We enjoyed having you and would be happy to welcome you back if you come again to this side of the pond!
