"A haven of environmental stewardship and love for souls looking for retreat".

.

A Unique Experience in Nature.  Trails, Boating, Bicycles!  Direct access to county bike path!  

.

 129Volt 15 Amp outlet available for vehicle charging.  

.

Stay on a crystal clear lake surrounded by tall pines and wetlands, rendering an extensive wildlife habitat within a sanctuary of natural beauty. Great care has been taken to nurture a secluded environment to explore, relax, restore and create; all on a hidden lake with its own beach, minutes from the sea.  Seasonal water sports and local beach passes are included in your stay.

.

Our secluded four-season retreat welcomes the guest seeking the peace of an exclusive nature getaway, while being just minutes from our renowned beach communities.  Leave behind the distractions and busyness of life to make room for stillness and the internal conversations that bring healing and wellness. Whether sitting amid tall pines, watching the sunset from the deck, hiking winding trails, fishing in a hidden cove, wading in perfectly clear waters, or writing, drawing, birding, boating, singing, praying; a time of peaceful recreation and restoration awaits you.

.

THE ROOM:  The Loft is in its own building, adjacent to the main house where I live with my husband, Eric.  Guests enter through a "contactless" foyer using a personalized keypad. The spaciously designed and well appointed 2nd story loft offers an abundance of natural light; with hardwood floors throughout, eating area for two, bar/sink with granite counters, generous & comfortable living space, dreamy queen size bed, walk in closet, modern bathroom with glass door and tiled shower. 

.

THE PROPERTY:  Our 40 acre property is hidden within a quiet suburban neighborhood, and is home to an abundance of turtles, migratory birds, fish, otter, fox, and much more.  Guests have endless access to trails; visit an observation tower, prayer labyrinth, scattered vistas, water sports, and so much more. 

.

LOCATION:  We are located in the quiet town of CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, just five miles from the pure white sandy beaches of Stone Harbor and Avalon, and twelve miles from historic Cape May!  With nature hikes, abundant wildlife, glorious sunsets, fabulous restaurants, shopping, golfing, historical enrichment & more - there's something for everyone on New Jersey’s Cape May Peninsula.

.

GUEST ACCESS: The loft is not shared. Guests have sole access to the entire rental area. 24 hour check in via keyless private entry so late arrivals are no issue!

.

COMPLIMENTARY LAKE ACTIVITIES:  Walking trails throughout 40 acres of private forest surrounding a pristine 23 acre swimming spring.Boating; kayaks, canoe, paddle boards, rowboatFishingBirdingHiking trailsLabyrinth/Prayer WalkFire pitLakeside picnic tables, lounge chairs, hammocksOutdoor open-air shower and bathroomIn season beach passes are included in your stay, Memorial Day through Labor Day.

It is an easy ride around the lake to the gate, and just a two mile ride south to the Cape May County Zoo. Codes for bike lock and for the gate tore-enter the property can be found in the room. Bikes are shared and are to remain in the shed when not in use.

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.

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!

Lunch in the tower.Lovely decor.Breakfast on the dock.Just enough for what we needed.

Everything about this stay was amazing. The loft is secluded and beautiful. The lake has every type of amenity you would want with lovely views and a nice hiking trail as well. Our host could not have been more hospitable. I STRONGLY recommend this site and can’t wait to come back.
