Overview

About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (16), expansive room sizes.

Please email for a quote prior to reserving! Too many variables to get the rate correct. I can be reached at 6098842497 or ashleyroseinn715@gmail.com. Our tenants love the location of this house at 715 Columbia Ave. Relax on the big wrap around porch with a refreshing sea breeze; rock your cares away in one of 20+ rockers and watch the moonlit sky; play games in the big living room or huge dining room on a rainy day; stretch out in one of the 3 restful suites with space and privacy. You can see the beach promenade 2 blk stroll straight ahead. Wide tree lined street, unobstructed views of the ocean from the second floor (it is still 2 blocks away), walk to resturants, shops and attractions 1-2 blocks. We are also a favorite of the horse/buggy tours. Be prepared to be entertained on the porch! Our tenants love the location of this house. You can see the beach promenade 2 blks straight ahead. Wide tree lined street, upobstructed views of the ocean from the second floor (it is still 2 blocks away), walk to resturants, shops and attractions 1-2 blocks. Many of our tenants walk by and say 'we could have stayed there!.' Now they are repeat tenants. Please contact us for full details and an accurate quote for your dates and situation. Read rates below and in 'notes.' We just renovated the first floor bath to add a large 4' shower. Also, side porch renovation opened up the porch and added a mahogany floor. Unique property. This is your chance to rent a colorful historic victorian at the shore. This house is a rare offering with beautiful furnishings, 7-8 brs and 5.5 baths (yes 5.5 baths!). It was an upscale B&B and it became a rental 10 years ago. Just completing a kitchen overhall in 2014. If you have a larger family, you can rent the main house and 4 cottages for a total of 11 bedrooms and 9.5 baths. A typical stay in the summer months is a week. For familys up to 14-16, the main house can be rented. As your group grows you can one or more cottages. We rent to families as few as 2 and as large as 32 (total of 11-12 bedrooms and 9.5 baths). Final prices are determined by the number in your family. Prices quoted here are for main house. We also rent at a discount off season, so spend your holidays and weekend with us. We have an additional rental here in Cape May, VRBO listing #352114.

The common rooms and many of the bedrooms are quite large - the dining room sits at least 18! Since the living and dining rooms can open to each other and they have 12' ceilings the space is expansive (but with a home-like comfort). 3 of the 7 bedrooms are large suites are at least 23' and have sitting areas with tv. For its age, the house has good sized bedrooms, no tiny bunk rooms here. There is more than 1 photo of some rooms so you e can see more of the space.

The location is wonderful. If you sit on one of the many porch rockers and look down the street you can see the beach front promenade. We are also in the center of the hsitoric district and walking distance to shops, resturants, activities, movies (and of course the beach), and all of Cape May's history and charm. We are a favorite of the house tours, so you will see plenty of horse drawn carriages. We are a 2 block walk from just about everything.

The house is 130 years old but has undergone a major renovation in the last three years, so there is 4 zone central air conditioning, gas fireplaces, plenty of hot water and gleaming spaces. See multiple pictures on our web site. We continue to renovate and upgrade in the off season to assure the comfort of our tenants.

There is so much to do here in Cape May that you may wish to extend your stay on your second visit. Feel free to call us for more information. We hope you will choose to share this grand old house with us and make it your yearly get away. One customer recently married here stated 'Our wedding weekend was absolutely perfect. We felt like we were home away from home.'

The house is also available for weddings, family reunions, holidays, receptions, conferences and more. With additional cottages and suites we can accommodate up to 32 people. The cottage and suites (all with kitchens, private amenities and entrances) are available to be rented separately).

Off season prices for the main house (16 people) range from $1200 to $2100 for 3 nights. Weekly 2500-2800 for 7 nights. The rate per night goes down after 3 nights. Short term cleaning fees are 150-200, weekly 250-350.

Sample of weekly rates 5/31 2500, 6/7 3000, 6/14 3900, 6/21 6100, 7/5 6500, 7/19 6900, 8/2 7300, 8/23 4200, 8/30 2900, 9/6 2650. There is an additional 350 cleaning and 550 refundable security fee. Weeks not mentioned are now reserved. Additional people and additional cottages are an extra cost. Please send a quick email. I usually reply within 10 minutes.

Perfect spot for large family whether first-time visitor, or Cape May regular

  • 5 of 5

From the huge front porch to the dining room table that can seat an entire extended family, this place was great. Plenty of bathrooms, bedrooms, and lounging area for everyone. Outdoor showers were a huge plus, a short walk to the beach and downtown areas were also key. Well-maintained house that we would recommend to anyone traveling with a huge family or group of friends.

Large cozy beautiful home in fantastic location, central to everything in Cape May!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family has stayed in this home several times, we just love it! The rooms are lovely and the location is central to everything...it is a short walk to the beach, to the little downtown shopping area. We enjoyed the cape may jazz festival a few times, it was fantastic! This home has rooms that are separate as well, a cute little dollhouse home out back. The landlord was so responsive and helpful. You will love this place!

Great New Years Eve Trip

  • 5 of 5

A group of good friends decided to spend New Years Eve in Cape May and would could not have been more thrilled with Cape May as well as the Ashley Rose Inn. We had 6 couples and everyone had lovely accommodations. The property is centrally located near the Jackson Street Mall and up the street from the Beach. We had a great stay and working with Sally was a delight. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone with a large group. We would definitely return.

Great experience for a writers workshop at the Ashley Rose

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a 5 day memoir workshop for 9 writers at the Ashley Rose in early November - it was a great experience. The house is spacious, wonderfully kept and very comfortable. The location is perfect as well - only a few minutes walk to the beach and the center of town. The writers loved staying at the house and exploring the beaches and the town. Sally, the owner, was great to work with and she even arranged for some fantastic weather for us. We would definitely host another workshop there next year.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had a friend reunion weekend at the Ashley Rose, gathering a large group and kids together for a fun and relaxing weekend. It was the perfect place to stay and such a beautiful, well kept home. We loved relaxing on the porch, taking walks to the beach and around town, and having meal gatherings at the large kitchen table. Sally was a wonderful owner to work with - clear communication from the start and very kind. We would definitely return.

Perfect Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 people arrived from several areas of the US to enjoy a week together. From the moment we walked into the Ashley Rose, we felt comfortable and "at home". The house is beautifully appointed with period furniture as well as comfy couches and rockers. The huge dining room allowed us to enjoy many meals together and the kitchen was stocked with everything we could possibly want - and more! We loved the location for walking to the beach and to any restaurant or shop we wanted. (We quickly established a tradition of ice cream every night and never ran out of new places to try) The big front and side porch seemed to be constantly in use with morning coffee, afternoon "happy hour" and late evening relaxing before hitting the comfortable beds. It was so much fun watching the trolley and horse drawn buggies go by and even stop for pictures of this beautiful Victorian. We brought some beach supplies with us but had no need for them because Sally provided everything we could want. The supplied beach box made for hassle-free time at the beach and the beach tags were a nice plus. When we were packing up at the end of the week, one of my children said this now felt like our home and it didn't feel right to be leaving. We all agreed!! Thank you Sally for patiently answering all our questions during our preparation and for being such a delightful hostess.
