Delightful home for large family

Our family has been vacationing on LBI for more than 40 years. We've outgrown our previous rental locations, so this was our first year at Penn Raven Cottage, and there were 17 of us, from age 6 to 83. Our family can't say enough good things about Penn Raven. From the size of the porch (huge), to the number and size of bedrooms and bathrooms, to the amount of interior living space - it's all wonderful. The first floor bedrooms are great for anyone who doesn't like to climb stairs. There was enough space for the family to be together at meals (most of which we ate on that wonderful porch), as well as space to spread out throughout the house singly or in small groups for reading, games, etc. The large yard had plenty of space for folks to play croquet and bocci ball on a luxurious grass lawn.The house is clean and well-maintained, the furnishings are beautiful and the Victorian charm impressed us all. Because it's right in the heart of Beach Haven, you can walk or bike to anything that you need, from groceries to the pharmacy to Bay Village and Fantasy Island.
The owners were incredibly responsive to a small problem (the dishwasher had a leak) and sent out the repairman immediately.
We would recommend Penn Raven to any large family. We'll definitely be back next year and anticipate that we'll be coming back to Penn Raven for years to come.
