The Coop In West Cape May

1 site · Lodging1 acre · West Cape May, NJ
Come relax in this tiny home by the shore located in our quiet West Cape May neighborhood just a quick bike ride from beautiful beaches, arts and culture, restaurants, wineries and the center of town. We provide everything you need to enjoy your visit to the Cape. This unique stay includes a lofted king bed, full kitchen and bath, washer/dryer combo, and screened-in porch. The Coop is great for couples and solo travelers who are adventurous and don’t mind climbing up a ladder to a lofted bed. Our property is on less than an acre of land (despite what the listing states, sorry! Hipcamp won't allow me to change the acreage amount to less than one!) so you will occasionally see and hear us or our neighbors. The space is a studio-style tiny home located behind the main residence with free parking in the shared driveway. During the spring, relax on the screened-in porch and enjoy listening to the frogs sing in the evening; come summer the porch is surrounded by beautiful red canna lilies- catch the hummingbirds visiting while you sip your coffee before you hit the beach; by fall the backyard is transformed as late blooming flowers bring migrating butterflies through town. All year long you are likely to see wildlife- songbirds, bald eagles and hawks, especially in the Spring and Fall as our place is located on the Atlantic Flyway. Our neighborhood is a quiet leafy residential area one mile from Cape May's beaches, walking mall, winery and the center of town. Please note that the only sleeping area is lofted - you will need to be able to comfortably climb a ladder. You will have sole use of the screened-in porch and tiny home. The backyard space outside of the screened-in porch is shared - you may occasionally see me or my partner in the garden. Help yourself to the mulberries, strawberries or blackberries that are growing in the garden if you're lucky to be here in season!

Beach glamping in New Jersey guide

Overview

From the wooded peaks of the Appalachian mountains in the north, through the vast woodlands of the Pine Barrens, to the golden sands of the Jersey Shore, it’s easy to get outdoors in New Jersey. May through September is beach season, when vacationers make a beeline for the famed Jersey Shore, where the 130-mile stretch of Atlantic coastline doesn’t disappoint. There’s more to the Garden State than just beaches, though, and New Jersey campgrounds provide plenty of variety, whether you prefer tent camping in the wilderness, an oceanview cabin rental, or a family campground with a swimming pool and campfires.

Where to go

North New Jersey

New Jersey’s mountainous north is a tangle of sloping woodlands and Appalachian Mountain peaks, tumbling down to the banks of the Delaware River. Campers can enjoy swimming, canoeing, and hiking at High Point State Park; tent camping along the Appalachian Trail; or biking, horseback riding, and snowmobiling in the Stokes State Forest. For a back-to-nature camping experience, the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area has tent and RV sites, as well as backcountry campsites and more than 150 miles of hiking trails to explore.

Piedmont

Flanked by the Hudson River to the east and the Delaware River to the west, Piedmont’s rolling hills provide plenty of spots to escape the crowds. RV parks are dotted around the cities of Elizabeth, Jersey City, and Newark, or you can camp with a view of the Manhattan skyline near Liberty State Park. Near the Pennsylvania border, Washington Crossing State Park has a selection of group campsites, all within walking distance of the park’s historic sites and hiking trails.

Jersey Shore

Stretching all the way from Cape May in the south to Sandy Hook in the north, New Jersey’s  Atlantic Coast is brimming with seaside resorts, amusement parks, and golf courses. Check into an RV campsite near the casinos of Atlantic City and Ocean City, rent a deluxe cabin at Seaside Heights, and take your pick of sandy beaches. Or, discover the coast’s wild side in the Pinelands National Reserve, the Bass River State Forest, or the Gateway National Recreation Area.

Inner Coastal Plain

New Jersey camping isn’t all about the beach—head inland, and you can pitch your tent or park your RV in the heart of the forest. Head to Wharton State Forest to hike, kayak, and horseback ride in the Pine Barrens, rent a yurt or cabin at Belleplain State Forest, or camp by the lakeside at Parvin State Park.
