Beautiful home with easy access to all the wonderful Jersey beaches

  • 5 of 5

Dan has a very charming home and covers all the little details that make for a very enjoyable stay. Dan clearly wants to make sure that you are comfortable in his house and enjoy all that the surrounding areas offer. In addition, he is attentive and responsive during your visit, promptly answering any questions or helping with any issues you may have.

While he takes care of all the basics that you expect, it's done in a first class manner. His home was extremely clean and very well maintained. Some of the things I didn't expect, but thoroughly enjoyed, were the use of bikes for my entire family, going for a canoe ride, enjoying drinks by the lake, and the use of a vinyl record player and extensive collection of records. . . brought me back a bit. It turned a beach week into much more.

Dan's house allows you to enjoy the beautiful Jersey shore in wonderful accommodations at a reasonable price. I look forward to a return visit next year!

Dan spoils you with comforts!

  • 5 of 5

We felt spoiled! Dan's home is clean, bright, comfortable and has it's own personality. Vinyl records & eclectic books at the ready. With 2 families sharing the home for early spring get away, we had plenty of room and everything needed to turn the long weekend into one of poignant memories. The bathrooms are spotless, with white boarding and even on old claw foot tub. The rather romantic master overlooks the lake where egrets nest. We saw turtles, blue heron, ducks and geese without leaving the porch! If the home and all the special touches are so much fun in the spring, we can only think how it would be in the summer when beach swimming is added to the mix!

Thank you for the welcoming flowers, the linens and beds made, the towels, the goodies in the kitchen to make cooking easier and having all the comfy hang out spots to sit! Highly recommend this home!! (Don't miss Silverball pin ball gallery either)

Wouldn't change a thing! This is our second time at the house. The house is perfectly quaint and fully equipped with everything you can need. Great location on the lake, short distance to the beach. The owner, Dan could not have been more accommodating. SO helpful, attentive and courteous. All around great time! We will definitely be back!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect fit for our family vacation which included my husband, myself and our adult children. It is a beautiful setting and a tastefully decorated home that you'll fall in love with the moment you enter. You could live on the backporch with a gorgeous view of Lake Deal. The owners are great to deal with and are responsive to any questions or concerns you may have. Take a canoe ride on the lake, a short trip to the beach, convenient to shopping. A gem of a spot for a vacation with friends and/or family!

First visit to New Jersey

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house. The setting is perfect on the lake. The yard is beautifully landscaped. The house is perfect. It was more than we needed for just the two of us. We used the porch more than any part of the house. It overlooks the lake. We had coffee there every morning and cocktails there every evening. Dan left us inflormation about the town that was very helpful. Thanks Dan for making this trip possible for us.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay, Tess! Yes, the deck is wonderful. From there I love to watch the squirrels chasing each other around the trees and the egrets flying over the lake. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Fantastic vacation at the shore

  • 5 of 5

We recently completed a 5 day stay at this terrific lakeside cottage in Asbury Park. The house was spotless when we arrived and is well equipped and spacious enough for 6 people - there were 3 adults and 3 children in our party. The house is in a great location, quiet and private, and only a 5 minute drive to the beach. We grilled and ate outside on the beautiful deck overlooking the lake at the back of the property, and had fun fishing (everyone caught something!). We have been to Asbury Park before and once again had fun on the beach,some great meals out, and relaxing walks on the boardwalk. The owner was a gracious host and provided all the information we needed to have a great vacation. Highly recommended!
