Furnished with flair, this Pied a Terre comes with at least two bikes and beach chairs so you can step right into a Cape May frame of mind. Perfect for 1 or 2, yet will accommodate 4.

My husband and I were living in Texas, I'd retired from teaching and was having fun with a design business I'd previously started. My family has great memories of growing up summers in the old family cottage on a lake in MA, and we all still take turns using the cottage. Yet, we'd always wanted a place of our own. We were looking for a fixer-upper in a good location near the ocean or in a deep water location for sailing. This is the house. At first sight, some would have considered it a tear down, but once inside, I could feel the possibilities. While John stayed home working, I spent from Nov.to mid June chipping, scraping, sanding, painting, sewing, hauling, and planting. Add the all important work of admired carpenters, plumbers and electricians and we now have our most loved "little" house.
Cape May is beautiful, historic, and offers so much to do and be involved in, the town is charming. Cape May Point, down the road a little bit, has kept that very rare (any more) summer place feel we wanted. A person can bike any place they want to go if they feel like it. The beaches are wonderful, you can lounge and read and watch the dolphins play. Fishermen fish from certain beaches and jetties, there are lifeguards and good swimming beaches. The whole area of Cape May Point is green with trees and grass. With Cape May Bird Observatory's Hawkwatch close by, bring your binoculars, grab a bike, borrow a birding book, and head on down to the platform by the lighthouse.
Instead of having sidewalks where visitors stroll, we're able to have woods across the street belonging to an old estate. Seagrove is an old beautiful street, delightful to bike, walk,and live on. Most days you hear the surf and with all the trees, we've got birds aplenty singing their songs. It's a happy inviting sort of place. We're close to the lighthouse and Hawkwatch, and have all the Point beaches to choose from. Sometimes you just get on a bike and ride through the Point having a marvelous time. The flag ceremony at Sunset Beach is a bike ride away; once you go and take in the ceremony honoring a veteran, you'll think about going more often. Soon after the ceremony it's a good place to watch the sunset. If you want to stay home, well, you just pull out a chair and relax on the balcony or in the private courtyard.
