Overview

Town Bank Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Dolphins, pelicans, great fishing, kayaking, sailing, and the best sunsets north of Key West await you!

Quiet, Historic Townbank is just a few minutes from the Victorian City of Cape May and Wildwood’s famous Boardwalk, but is a world apart. Willow cottage is just four houses away from the most beautiful natural beaches in New Jersey. Start your day with coffee, enjoying the view of the water from the front enclosed porch. Enjoy breakfast on the landscaped terrace or on the large screened dinning porch. Spend your day with a good book relaxing on the beach or playing in the calm surf. Bring your fishing rod and crab traps because there is plenty of time for that to!

Need a break from the beach? Tour some of the great local attractions including the wonderful Cape May County Zoo or visit one of our many area wineries. Take a day trip to the quaint town of Lewis, Delaware on the Cape May Lewis Ferry or relive your childhood on one of the many rides on the Wildwood boardwalk. The area abounds with things to keep you busy.

End your day with a glass of wine while watching the dolphins play at sunset. Then off to Harpoon Henry’s a few blocks away for fun food and music or around town to one of Cape May’s exceptional restaurants. If staying in is more your style there are many local farm and fresh seafood markets to find something perfect for the grill.

Willow Cottage is family owned for over sixty years and has been newly renovated through out and offers all the modern amenities while maintaining a bit of the cottage’s history. The cottage offers beach chairs, an umbrella, sand toys and a wagon to haul it all!

Why The Owner chose South NJ Shore

My grand father built the original part of the cottage back in 1949. It was his little slice of heaven. The whalers of New England first settled Townbank in the mid 1600’s. But during the 1940’s and 50’s it was a sleepy little village comprised of bungalows located on wooded lots owned by fishermen and their families. Four generations later Townbank is still a thriving family orientated community and continues to be our little slice of heaven!

Wonderful trip at Willow Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our daughters Coast Guard graduation. Willow cottage was everything that was advertised and more. Janice, the owner, is more than helpful with questions regarding the area and is MOST accommodating. Our family had a wonderful time, and would NOT hesitate to stay here again, nor recommend it to family and friends. The sunsets on the bay are magnificient, and this home is very centrally located to all of the "things to do" in the area. You are not renting a house when you rent Willow cottage, you are renting a home! The only negative is that we were not able to stay longer. If you are interested in using the Cape May-Lewes ferry, Willow cottage is less than 10 minutes away, and it was a great expierence. Thank you Janice!

Cottage Charm!

We had the most wonderful time at Willow Cottage. It was very cozy, comfortable and clean. Everything is updated and the house is very nicely decorated. The owners are great to work with and I would definitely recommend to friends and family. Looking forward to going back to this beautiful cottage.

Enjoying the Jersey Shore at Willow Cottage by the Bay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time vacationing in Cape May and staying at Willow Cottage. We generally do not go to the same area twice for vacation, but we so loved Cape May and all it has to offer, we had to come back! We love the location of the cottage and all it has to offer-easy walk to the bay and to Harpoon Henry's: very quiet and peaceful; clean and well-maintained; variety of activities to see and do and good quality restaurants within a quick drive away. Our family of four enjoyed the beaches, birding, kayaking, tours of the Cape May Winery, the Emlen Physick estate, Cold Springs Historical Village, and the Cape May Zoo. The owners are very accommodating and helpful in answering all of our questions. We would highly recommend this property to all.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We know when we have returning guests we must be doing our job right. One of the things we love most about this area is that it is centrally located. Everything is either a short walk or drive. You can start your morning with a beautiful walk on the beach, lunch at Harpoon Henry’s then head out for the afternoon to tour some of the local wineries!

Charming Cottage on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

We found Willow Cottage to be exactly as described. The pictures are accurate; the home was spacious and lovingly decorated. There wasn't an inside picture of the screened porch, so we were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. Because we had some rain, we used the porch for morning coffee and playing cards in the evening. It was a delightful space! With five adults it was very nice to have two full baths.

The walk to the bay and beautiful sunsets was less than a block. Harpoon Henry's is just down the road and it is just a short drive to Cape May for restaurants, walking mall, Victorian houses, tours, etc.

The owners were very responsive and helpful. When we left we all agreed that this is the nicest house we had rented in the Cape May area, and we have been coming to Cape May since our adult children were small. We would recommend this home to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We love to hear when our guests enjoy some of the same things we love about the cottage. The screened porch is one of our favorite places to hang out and relax. A visit to Harpoon Henry's is a must! You can not go wrong with a tall stack of their onion rings and a front seat view of the amazing sunset!

Extremely Cute and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our family with 3 kids. Very clean and current decor. The patio and screened in porch are really nice! I've been involved in construction all my life and i appreciate when something is warm and inviting and this cottage deffinetly has it! The owners couldn't have been more accommodating. It is several miles from the main beaches of Cape May, but within easy walking distance of the beaches on the Deleware Bay and our kids loved these more " natural" beaches with all the sealife to explore at low tide. We would deffinetly rent this cottage again.
