I was born and raised in Cape May, in 1937. I married Betty a Philadelphia girl that was working in Cape May, the summer of 1959, after she graduated from West Chester State Teachers College. We raised three boys and a girl, the oldest is Frank born in 1961, and the youngest is our daughter born in 1970.

I sailed as a Ship Master/Pilot with Texaco Oil from 1973 to 1993. I am presently working for an Oil Spill Response Organization, and still work as a Ship Master/Pilot of the Oil Spill Response Vessel, M/V Lynne Frink. My wife Betty is now retired. After teaching for over 30 years.

Having been born a raised here. I know anything and everything you would want to know about Cape May. I can recommend the best breakfast restaurants, casual restaurants, and fine dining restaurants in the entire area.

Capt Frank purchased this cabin in 1979

When we bought this property. It was a small horse farm. My wife and daughter raised and trained quarter horses here. The cabin that you will be staying in, at that time was a hayloft. In the early 90s. My daughter lost interest in the horses to became a model and left for Paris, France.

The horses became too much work for my wife. So we decided to sell off some land and the horses. We then turned the hayloft into an apartment. Several years ago we decided to make a seasonal rental out of it. Because we are great lovers of dogs and know the difficulty in finding a place to stay that caters to pets, we thought it would be a good idea to develop a pet friendly rental.. We turned the original 1 acre arena into a pet friendly yard, and fenced it in with 4 foot high chain-link fence to keep your pet safe and secure.

I know the hustle and bustle of the summer season, and knew better than to buy a home in center town. You will find the area that we live in is quite unique. If you wish to go into town and enjoy a night out at one of our great restaurants or listen to some jazz, it is only 2 miles away. And when you have had enough we can simply come home to the quiet, tranquil country surroundings. During the day, we are only a short way down the road from the Pet Friendly, Higbee Beach State Park. As ours add states we are literally 2 miles from anything you would need. This includes golf courses, Party Boats, Whale Watchers, Power Sailng, Jet Skiing, and of course the great Wildwood Boardwalk with all its great amusements and attractions. If you would like to try your luck at the casinos of Atlantic City, they are only a 45 min. drive away.

A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This place was a great find! Frank and Betty were wonderful hosts and the cottage was perfect for us. It was clean, well maintained and had all the little extras. The location couldn't be more ideal...it is nearby to everything, but out of the hustle and bustle. The yard is fantastic and our furry baby loved every minute she got to spend in it.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having such gracious guests. When they left the cabin was left clean and neat. Their pet was very well behaved, and we enjoyed watching him play in his yard. We will look forward to seeing them again soon.

Only 1 bathroom. Poison ivy everywhere

  • 1 of 5
Never again. Only 1 bathroom, not 2 like internet showed. Poison ivy surrounds the entrire fenced in yard. Pool is directly in back of owners home, so no privacey. At one point I saw what may have been their granddaughter pull down her shorts and bare her bottom on the pool deck. Glad my child did not see that. Grill was filthy, and could not cook on it, nor would I want to since it was so dirty. Oven broiler wasn't much better. Parking is odd, as their driveway isnt that wide. This is a fine place if you have very low expectations for your vacation.

Owner's Response: First : We would like to apologize for the misrepresentation of 2 baths. It is a 2 bedroom, 1 full bath cabin. I have made sure the ad has been changed and is now correct.

Second: We did not realize the poison ivy on the fence surrounding the one acre pet yard was enough to be hazardous to adults. We hate to use weed killer due to the large bird habitat..

Third: I will also apologize for my 7 year old grandaughter's unthinkable act of baring her bottom, I don't think she realized see was being watched, while she changed from her wet bathing suit. As the ad clearly states we share the pool with our guests. We also want to make sure this privacy is not confused with the privacy of the cabin, We can not see our guests except entering or leaving the driveway, unless they want to see us.

Fourth: We are sorry you had trouble navigating the double wide driveway, with your own private parking area.

Fifth : I have no comment for the grill. We are just sorry it was not up to your standards of an outdoor grill.

In conclusion to this response I hope the readers of this will take into account all the previous

Rosalita Loved It Here!

  • 5 of 5
Rosalita, our companion, loved staying here. She loved the huge yard she had to play in and the fact that we were very close to a beach where she could run and play off the leash. We found it to be very private, very clean, reasonably priced and close to the parkway which brought us to any other South Jersey hot spot in minutes. Frank was away, but Betty was very nice and gave us hugs when we left.

Wonderful Winter Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful winter 5 day vacation we had here in this lovely cabin in Cape May. The owner Frank was very accommodating and friendly. The home clean with comfortable beds and is stocked well. Our dog Jackie had a fabulous time running around in the fenced acre. She even found & pointed a resident Woodcock :-) We got snowed in for a day, but the dog loved playing in the snow. Secluded and quiet but conveniently located to just about everything. Highly recommend spending a vacation here summer or winter. We shall return. Thanks.

Owner's Response: We would like to thank Rob and Ruth Ann for the wonderful review, and for being so attentive to our house rules. When they checked out we would not have known anyone stayed in the cabin. Jackie was also a perfect guest, The Woodcock was sad to see him leave.

We hope to have them back soon,
Betty and Capt Frank

A great long weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay at 1010. We had been looking for a place in Cape May that was dog friendly and had a big yard and this place fit the bill. The cabin was lovely and the huge yard was absolutely amazing. Higbee Beach is only a few minutes down the road and there are several restaurants downtown that allow you to bring your dog. We are already planning our next visit!

Notes:
This is a 2nd floor cabin which makes the deck very private. The rental has a full one-acre yard, fenced in by a chain link fence to make it very pet and child friendly. However we expect the tenants to closely supervised their pets and or children while they are playing in the yard. Although a car is recommended, we are less then 2.0 mi from everything, and there are numerous bike paths for bicycle commuting.
