Why stew in traffic at the shore when you can enjoy a serene getaway with water view at a lovely nearby lake instead? Built in 1922 and recently restored with 3 bedrooms + sleeping porch, lake in front and creek behind. Canoe, swim, fish, explore!

The space

Our house, built in 1922 and recently restored, has 3 bedrooms and a sleeping porch, 2 modern baths, living room with wood-burning 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.

Guest access

Guests will be able to access the entire house except the attic (for safety reasons). We welcome reasonable use of our house, garage, wifi, cable, canoe + paddles (above age 7 for safety reasons) and grill. Fireplace should be considered decorative and not to be used.

Interaction with guests

We have created a Welcome Book with information about the town, nearby attractions, etc, for your enjoyment. This book is available as you enter the house. We are available through phone or email if needed.

Other things to note

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.

Wonderful place. Clean & well kept for an older house that has been updated. Comfy beds!!! Nice porch outside to have coffee or dinner on. Owner left plenty of supply's & towels to make it a comfy stay. No real problems at all. House has been updated with central AC and bedrooms upstairs got a little warm on days above 90 degrees. But owner has plenty of fans to keep it cool. We would come back if staying in the Mays Landing area. Owner was very responsive via email, text, & phone. Overall we give it a 5 out of 5 for value, cleanliness, comfort, communication, and location.

We had a great time staying at Nancy's lake house! The beach and lake were literally just outside the front door...just a quick walk across the street and we were there. The house was beautiful, the rooms were comfortable, and we felt at home there. Nancy was a wonderful host...great communication, updates, fast responses, etc. before and during our stay. If we are back in NJ for another visit, we will definitely stay at Nancy's house again!!

I am a registered nurse with family scattered around the country. New to airbnb but already loving the idea of it. I am flexible but prefer a quiet space to lay my head down after travel, hiking, museum-going, or whatever. Enjoy meeting new people; perhaps we shall meet soon! …
