Coming back soon!
The loft is lovely! Robin has done a fabulous job creating a beautiful and peaceful space that is always well tended. This is my second visit and I have reservations to return later this year when the weather is warmer. This has become my go to spot when I need some away time. George’s Place Mediterranean restaurant is worth a visit. Just 10 minutes from the property. Also easy drive to Cape May, Stoneharbor, and Ocean City New Jersey.

Incredible Find!
The loft is an absolute gem! It is well built, beautifully appointed, and immaculately clean. Perfectly stocked and furnished to accommodate two people very comfortably. Lovely inspiring thoughts and images grace a few walls and tables. A shelf offers numerous games to play, books to read, and movies to watch. But you probably won't need those once you wander around the pristine, clear water lake. It is magical! The walking labyrinth, the tree house tower, kayaks, paddle boards, canoe, and fire pit had us outside enjoying this unique property as much as we could. Plus plenty of private spots for a picnic or a nap in the sun. We could feel the gentleness of the land and lake. Wind, birds, and peepers. Watched turtles sunning on logs and fish swimming below our kayaks. What a perfect retreat spot! The owner Robin checked in several times to be sure we had everything we needed, was warm and friendly, but not intrusive. During our stay, the owners were in the process of adding a deck off the lake side of the loft just because "it needed a deck" for guests to more completely enjoyed the lake and the sunsets. Can't wait to return in warmer weather to swim in the lake. I give it five stars!
