Hurry! Just one week left for the Summer of 2017: Aug 25 - Sep 1, 2017.

Check out our great prices for the remarkably beautiful months of September & October 2017. During September & October, the sunlight at the Jersey Shore transforms into a thick, plush, gold. It’s not your imagination, the light really is different and at its most beautiful of the year. The lively beer gardens, bars and restaurants in Asbury Park have great events planned all Fall - like Oktoberfest at the Festhalle & Biergarten - just a five minute walk from Chadwick Cottage. Other great fall events in Ocean Grove include: the Giant Fall Flea Market on Sep 9, the British Car Show on Sep 16, the Fall Harvest Festival & Craft Show on Oct 7, the Halloween Parade for Pets & Kids on Oct 28.

Ocean Grove is also the perfect storybook village to celebrate the Fall & Winter holidays. The town sparkles with holiday lights and decorations and the shops in Ocean Grove and Asbury Park offer creative holiday gifts. The Asbury Park Holiday Bazaar runs from late November through mid December and transforms Convention Hall into a winter wonderland with twinkling lights, hot cider, mulled wine, live music, Santa photos and a Christmas Market of great holiday gifts. Everything you need to get into the holiday spirit. The Victorian Holiday Festival and House Tour in Ocean Grove is on Dec 9 - 10. On New Year's Eve, there is a beautiful Black Tie Masquerade Ball in Asbury Park at the Grand Arcade in Convention Hall. Thanksgiving 2017, Christmas 2017 and New Years Eve 2017 are all currently available at Chadwick Cottage.

Girls' Getaway Weekend in Ocean Grove is Feb 23 - 25, 2018 and offers Cooking Classes, Wine Tastings & Spa Packages.

Chocolate Lovers' Weekend in Ocean Grove is March 11 - 12, 2017 & probably March 10 - 11, 2018. It offers chocolate indulgences at all the Restaurants, Inns & Shops in town plus Spa Packages.

Chadwick Cottage is an historic Queen Anne Victorian built in 1882. It is available as both a Vacation Rental and as a Filming Location. It was completely restored, updated and professionally decorated and landscaped in 2001. It's located in Ocean Grove, NJ - a National Historic District. Chadwick Cottage is just a two minute walk to all the quaint shops & restaurants on Ocean Grove's Main Avenue. And it's just a quick five minute walk across the charming footbridge over Wesley Lake to all the hip bars, restaurants, shops, art galleries, theaters & music venues in Asbury Park. There are also tons of great activities for kids: Surfing Lessons at the Summertime Surf School, Arcade Games at the Silverball Museum (180 games - pinball, skeeball, video games), Asbury Splash Park, Asbury Miniature Golf, Glassblowing workshops at the Hot Sand glassblowing studio, Paint Your Own Ceramics at the Git Fired Up ceramics studio, etc. It's no wonder that Fodor's named Ocean Grove as one of its 15 Best Beaches for 2014.

This home is 2,000 square feet. It has a large, shaded front porch and side porch that overlook beautiful plantings. This home is just a 55 minute drive to Midtown Manhattan and is also just a five minute walk to Asbury Park, NJ - with all it's great restaurants & bars and it's amazing live music scene. Both Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi got their starts playing in Asbury Park at the Stone Pony. NJ Transit also runs a commuter train between Midtown Manhattan & Asbury Park, NJ - the Asbury Park train station is just a 9 minute walk from our house. Academy Bus runs a commuter bus between Midtown Manhattan & Ocean Grove - the bus stop is just a three minute walk from our house.

Chadwick Cottage has two wood burning fireplaces - one in the living room and another in the dining room. So Chadwick Cottage is the perfect place to get away all four seasons of the year - Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring.

This house sits on high ground that is 25 feet above sea level; accordingly, there was no damage or flooding from Hurricane Sandy. 99% of the homes in Ocean Grove experienced no damage from the storm. The far end of the Ocean Grove Fishing Pier and 40% of the Boardwalk were damaged. FEMA money came thru so the Boardwalk was rebuilt and reopened on July 3, 2014. The Boardwalk on our side of town was protected by the dunes and experienced no damage. Additionally, none of the businesses in the village of Ocean Grove experienced any damage. Bottom line, Ocean Grove is alive & well. In fact, Ocean Grove is thriving as many refugees from other towns that were damaged by Sandy relocated to Ocean Grove.

On the first floor, this beautiful, spacious home features a large foyer with a front staircase and powder room, a living room with a corner fireplace and stained glass windows, a dining room with a corner fireplace, stained glass windows and a glass pass-thru to the cook's kitchen. The kitchen features custom glass cabinetry, a double under-mount sink with garbage disposal, extensive marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. Off the kitchen, there is a bar room perfect for mixing cocktails and brewing morning coffee, this room also features an under-mount sink, extensive marble countertops, a professional ice-maker, and custom cabinetry including a pantry that hides a full-sized front-loading stacked washer and dryer. Also off the kitchen is a large back foyer that contains antique cabinetry and a back staircase.

Upstairs features four private bedrooms, two of these bedrooms feature queen-sized beds and stained glass windows, two feature full-sized beds. Each bedroom features either extensive clothes closets or large wardrobes and dressers. There is also a large linen closet and a storage closet. Upstairs also has two beautiful full bathrooms. The front bathroom features an historic claw foot tub/shower, stained glass windows and marble sink. The back bathroom features a beautiful glass enclosed stall shower with a cascade shower head that releases a 'soft rain' flow of water from the ceiling. The back bathroom also has an antique pedestal sink.

This house is situated in Ocean Grove, NJ one of the Jersey Shore's finest year-round seaside resorts. Known as 'the Jewel of the Jersey Shore,' Ocean Grove has the highest concentration of authentic Victorian architecture in the country. This national historic treasure offers one square mile of natural beauty, including pristine beaches, tree-lined streets, serene boardwalk and parks, music & lecture programs, unique eateries, and a quaint shopping district.

Located along the beach, Ocean Grove is strategically situated at the geographic center of the Jersey Shore with Sandy Hook to the north and Atlantic City to the south, and all of the Shore's attractions within easy access. Only an hour’s drive from Manhattan (to the north) and 90 minutes from Philadelphia (to the south), Ocean Grove is a weekend, summer, and year-round destination for domestic and international travelers. Ocean Grove is also easily accessible by train and bus via New Jersey Transit.

Summertime in Ocean Grove is filled with arts and craft shows, giant flea markets, guided historical walking tours, house tours, performances by famous named artists at the legendary Great Auditorium and much more. Having expanded into a town for all seasons, Ocean Grove now holds events year round to celebrate the uniqueness of this Victorian town, such as The Victorian House Tour in December, Chocolate Lovers Weekend in February, and the Garden State Film Festival in April. A stroll along Main Avenue anytime of the year is a rich reminder of Victorian life with its many quaint gift shops and antique stores. The Ocean Grove Boardwalk connects to the Bradley Beach Boardwalk to the south and the beautiful and hopping Asbury Park Boardwalk to the north with its shops, restaurants, chic lounges, casual bars and other entertainment venues.

The Asbury Park Boardwalk and Cookman Avenue Shopping District host Summer Bonfires on the beach (Fridays in June, Wednesdays in July & August) and everyday amusements such as pinball at the Silverball Museum, a whimsical WaterPark for kids, a miniature golf course, and glass-blowing at Hot Sand. The music scene in Asbury Park also remains a staple for visitors. The famed Stone Pony which launched the careers of Bruce Springsteen and John Bon Jovi continues to be a sentimental favorite while Convention Hall, Wonder Bar, The Saint, Paramount Theatre and green spaces along the boardwalk play host to bands and other performers year-round. There is not a day that goes by without live music in Asbury Park.

Many guests at our house like to rent bicycles at the Ocean Grove Hardware Store on Main Avenue in Ocean Grove or at Brielle Cyclery on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. The area's flat terrain makes for easy riding for people of all ages.

Historic Charmer

  • 5 of 5

With a family wedding nearby, our group of six spent five days at Chadwick Cottage. We were comfortable and appreciated each thoughtful detail as we reached for a fluffy towel or a glass of filtered ice water. Mr. Brubaker was helpful and quick to respond to queries. Ocean Grove and this lovely home fulfilled all our expectations. If there's ever an opportunity to be in the area again, I'll happily stay in this elegant home.

Beautiful home in a quaint town at the Jersey Shore

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay over the Christmas holiday in this beautiful home nestled in the quaint town of Ocean Grove. The location was ideal with numerous restaurants within walking distance. We highly recommend you dine at the Seagrass restaurant, The Starvimg Artist and Talulah's restaurant. The food was fabulous! The homeowner, James was very responsive to our text and emails and offered many suggestions to enhance our stay in Ocean Grove. The home was immaculate and cozy. This home would be ideal for guests in the summer as the beach is only a block away.

Super cute, exceptionally clean home with so much charm in such a quaint town. Sitting on the front porch catching up with our family was the best part of our stay. All of James' suggestions and attention made our stay even that much better. I highly recommend Chadwick Cottage.
