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!
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.
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.
We request you email to review our Short Term Lease and House Rules before asking to book. These will need to be signed before the booking can be completed. The short version of our house rules are:
1. No pets.
2. Absolutely no smoking in and around the house. Some members of our family have asthma and the smell of smoke that lingers in the furnishings would make them ill.
3. Please brush any sand off clothing, shoes, sandals, feet, etc before coming into the house
4. Please keep noise down between 10 pm and 8 am.
5. Please take garbage down to street on Tuesday night and return empty containers to side of house on Wednesday. Recycling is every other Saturday and the schedule is posted on the refrigerator.
