The tiny lakeside cabin provides a year-round tranquil & restorative retreat; hosting guests from around the world who are seeking a relaxing getaway to help them "power-down".  Your stay includes local beach passes & all water sport activity at the lake: kayaks, canoes, sailboat, SUPs, water mat.  Enjoy quiet nature hikes, abundant wildlife, glorious sunsets, fabulous restaurants, historical enrichment & much more. There is something for everyone on southern New Jersey’s Cape May Peninsula!

This is one of 4 accommodations on property.  Please see my profile for other options. 

"Wow. Just wow. Unparalleled quiet, privacy, and natural beauty. Worth every penny!"June 2019

We are located in the quiet town of Cape May Court House, 5 miles from the pure white sandy beaches at Stone Harbor and Avalon, and just 12 miles from historic Cape May!   

Rental includes complimentary beach passes and free use of all water sport activity while staying on the lake: kayaks, canoes, sailboat, SUPs, water mats.  Enjoy private views of Turtle Cove which is home to an abundance of turtles, migratory birds, deer, and a pair of otters.  Guests of the lake have full usage off all water equipment as well as endless access to trails, the lookout tower, kayaks, canoes, etc.  

The outdoor amenities are included in room rate and shared with owners and other guests; mostly couples, occasionally families.  

This is an Off-Grid Cabin: no running water, t.v, wifi.  Solar powered.  Odorless composting toilet and bathroom sink with 3 gallon water tank for hand washing and teeth brushing.  We have a lovely shared outdoor HOT shower with traditional toilet open in Mid March through Mid November.  

This is one of our two cabins on the lake.  This is more remote and secluded than our first cabin, located on the back of the property right on the water.  We welcome people looking for peace and quiet and a reconnection with nature; quiet, mindful guests with a caretaker philosophy for the cabin, the land and yourselves. We ask you to leave our property as pristine as you find it so that those that follow you may enjoy fully.  We do not provide cooking amenities, so this rental is perfect for those wanting to get away and partake in simple meals by the lake or experiencing the plentiful eateries in the area.  

We are the only home on the lake.  We have 40 private acres adjacent a quiet suburban street.  We respect our neighbors by making sure our guests understand that they are staying at a wildlife sanctuary and not a private party spot.  Quiet after 10 pm.  

Enjoy our Amish built log cabin - tucked inside the pines along the water's edge for a peaceful getaway.  Come to write, read, create, connect or find stillness and silence. Make this your base for outdoor recreation and adventure. Enjoy acres of privately owned woods and water surrounding you as you nestle in.   

THE CABIN: is on our private property shared with our family.  It is about a 8 min walk from the main house and there is no lighting on the path.
