We couldn't imagine a nicer setting for a weekend/vacation home. Our cottage was the ideal place for our young, beach-loving family. Pretty grounds for the children to play on, a view of beautiful Lake Como, Spring Lake and walking distance to New Jersey's sparkling shore.
As city dwellers, who often vacation by the sea on an island in Greece, we miss the sight, smells and sounds of the sea when not there. Our breezy, sun-filled cottage, by the shore is the perfect escape when we want to feel the comforts of our island home. We are tucked away on a quiet, sweet country lane with lovely neighbors including the resident duck family that keeps the cottage alive, even when we are gone. Our cottage has just enough of the comforts of a modern home, allowing you to relax, be comfortable and forget the hustle and bustle of city life.
Upon entry our 'island' sitting room, decorated in cobalt blue and white reminds guests that they have arrived at the Shore. Past the tangerine entry is our euro-chic living room with a view of the garden and lake. Three ample-sized bedrooms with new mattresses, cotton bed linens, down pillows and comforters. A linen closet just outside the bathroom houses fresh cotton towels. The newly installed birch kitchen seats 6 comfortably and opens to the back yard/patio where you could eat al fresco or swing lazily in our hammock whilst sipping iced tea with a fresh sprig of mint from our herb garden. BBQ at home or eat out at the many restaurants in the area.
I am a full-time Mom that enjoys working on creative projects; I am very involved in our 2 childrens' lives. My husband is in the hospitality industry. Having always worked in luxury properties, he has a keen sense of what a guest wants. We love entertaining and having friends around. Though we live in the city, we have a deep appreciation for the simple things country life can provide. We enjoy gardening, antiquing, good food, and good company. I will do my best to help you in planning your stay. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for looking, Anna
We first visited the family cottage over 20 years ago, where after dinner with family, my then boyfriend and I took a walk to Lake Como and by the reflection of a big August moon, he proposed marriage. This area and cottage has had a special place in our hearts since then. In 2009, to our surprise, our dear Uncle turned the cottage over to our family to enjoy. Our young teens love it and the freedom and peacefulness that comes with it.
We are a just about an hour and a half away from(midtown) Manattan and Philadelphia. We are located by Lake Como and just 2 city blocks from the Ocean. Sounds of nature surround you as you wake. An early morning jog around the lake and up to the ocean are sure to start the day well. Fresh baked goods could be had at several local bakeries. Good quality American fare, including seafood can be found just a bike ride away. Being 'city kids', our children did not know the freedom of riding their bikes and taking long walks without us. As soon as our car pulls up the lane and we hear the crunching of gravel under our tires, we know that we have arrived to our little 'peace' of paradise. We always wrap up the evening by taking a walk up to the ocean.
