We did have a nice time for 1 of 2 nights. Opted to leave Saturday. Unfortunately the Campground was not yet ready for guests. The cabin itself was fine. It only sleeps 5. On the website the dropdown allowed us to reserve for 8. Campsites were not well cleared. The cabin was literally set on the side of the gravel road entrance to the property. 3 of our party had to set up tents in another area. There was no designated firepits. We were brought a donated Rusty chimanea. We did use it, however, a circle of chairs around it was in the road. We were promised a hot shower and access to a hot tub. Neither was available to out party of 8.
We were told the lake beach would be cleared for use/meeting,etc. It was covered with tree limbs & brush.
It is a promising location, but it it NO WHERE near ready.
Helpful and interesting host, one-of-a-kind setting (historic cemetery!), private and quiet, and located right where we needed it to be. Looking forward to our next stay.
A memorable, unique family weekend!
Will, the host, made sure via text that he knew exactly when we were arriving so he was available to give us a tour. The tour begins with, "Everyone in the family, hold a knot on the rope," so we could all ring the bell in the church. My nine and eleven year old children felt like VIP's the entire time, and that is exactly what the host called them. "What song would your family like to hear played in this church?" And on and on!
Additionally lovely is that Will supports local artists and the community.
The grounds and church are in a wonderfully central location. We explored new beaches, while still going to places in Wildwood/Cape May that we know from years past.
I plan to return and want to continue to support this host and his big-hearted pursuits.
An experience to die for... ;)
We had a most enjoyable experience here! You may think staying at a cemetery and in a tent at that is a little odd but it was really quite a fun stay! Will is a great host, friendly and engaging, he makes sure you feel comfortable and have everything you may need to make your stay great. Family friendly as well. There was a mom and her two children there and Will sat with them and talked with the kids listening to them and making them feel at home away from home. The outside shower is a delight! Hot water and great water pressure and give the allure of being out in the open while providing a private space. We will be back for sure!! This place is a gem!
Best experience in the area!
This was an amazing place to stay while visiting the beach this weekend. The host, Will, was very nice and has a beautiful piece of property that we’ll definitely be visiting again soon.
We didn't get to stay due to crappy Memorial Day weekend weather but the hosts were so concerned about us (we planned on trying to come and tent camp anyway) and worked with us for alternative options. Next time I plan to camp near the beach I will definitely rebook here!
