About the property

2 bed, 2 bath cottage with pro-kitchen,beautiful gardens and decks on quiet st

Mohegan Wood is a two story beach-town cottage and is a great option to the typical bare bones beach bungalows. Perfect for families or two couples. Away from the crowds, noise, commotion, you can actually relax and enjoy the peace and comfort while still being at the beach. Everything is within walking or biking distance. Please see our list of amenities for the many extras we provide that others don’t such as beach passes and bicycles. Additionally we do not charge any additional fees, the price you see is the price you get, excluding the what the website adds.

There is central air throughout as well as ceiling fans and walls of bright windows if you prefer the fresh air. The house has multi zone audio and three flat screen HD T.V.’s. High speed Wi-Fi is available as well as ipod/music player hookup. There is a well supplied kitchen with all of the tools and pantry items a Chef could appreciate. There is also a renter contributed wet bar available to compliment your cooking. Outside we have an outdoor gas grill and gardens for you to help yourself to with a variety of two dozen different kinds of seasonal fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables. We have several bikes for your use, two beach cruisers, one vintage rat bike cruiser and a Schwinn tandem. For the beach there are beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach bags and beach towels.

The bottom floor has an open room design connecting the sun room, dining room, living room, bar and newly remodeled kitchen. Reclaimed barn wood is used on most of the walls with 12 foot high ceiling in the living and dining rooms. . The master bedroom and bathroom are also downstairs at the back of the house away from the street. By the back door are the laundry room and pantry.

The Master bedroom has a queen sized bed, mid-century dressers, closet, sliding glass door to a private porch, ceiling fan and a ceiling dropdown flat screen T.V. The newly remodeled downstairs bathroom has a real beach feel with stone and tile walls, glass shower and aromatic steam room.

Upstairs there is the second bedroom with full size bed, vintage dressers and closet in addition to the loft with office, sofa bed, more closets, T.V. area and sliding door to private balcony with outside steps down to the deck below. Between the loft and bedroom is a large full bathroom.

The decks and gardens are relaxing and large enough for a variety of "feels". There is music, lighting, several chairs and benches, umbrella table and a long reclaimed 19th century butchers block table.

We have off-street parking on the driveway with a converted carriage house for storage of fishing and surf gear.

About Karin and Will

Will and Karin are both in the hospitality/restaurant business in Manhattan. Karin first fell in love with Manasquan when she first visited as a child and has been a regular ever since. Will grew up traveling and was introduced to Manasquan ten years ago. Together, their goal for Mohegan Wood is for every visitor to fall in love with all Manasquan has to offer in addition to it's famous beach.

Karin and Will purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Karin and Will chose Manasquan

Mohegan Wood is a beautiful, soulful home that Karin and Will use themselves in addition to sharing it with others. Because of this the house is maintained and cared for, with more put into it than an "investment" property. Quality is always the first consideration rather than what's cheapest.

What makes this cottage unique

There are many benefits to staying at Mohegan Wood but the primary benefit has to be that when staying here you feel at home like a local instead of visiting like a tourist.

Perfectly quaint and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect getaway. The house is so cosy and welcoming. It has everything anyone could need on a vacation. My friends and I especially enjoyed the stunning backyard area. There is plenty of seating. The grill is gas controlled so it was ideal for our BBQ needs. A really sweet touch was access to the fresh garden and herbs. We also made use of the bicycles available. The surround sound throughout the house was also awesome. Not to mention the super fancy sauna shower. Excellent facilities. Overall, this place is incredible and I would highly recommend it. I look forward to visiting again soon.

This was a great house for a weekend away. The owners go above and beyond to ensure that you had absolutely everything you need. Check in was easy and they were really responsive with all questions. I would absolutely rent again.

My friends and I stayed here for a holiday weekend and had a great time! The house was cute and comfortable and had everything we needed to have a fun and relaxing vacation! Full kitchen, speakers throughout the house, and great outdoor space. I definitely recommend to anyone heading to the Jersey shore!

Manasquan is a perfect location. Besides the greatest beach at The Shore, we are close enough to New York City and Atlantic City for day (or night) trips. Also, in addition to the nearby arcade boardwalks of Asbury Park, Point Pleasant Beach and Seaside Heights, Six Flags Great Adventure is nearby as well.
