Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Glenn,



We forgot to write in your guest book about our experience, this letter is our expressions of thanks.



We came to celebrate our friend's 50th wedding anniversary. When we walked in the door we knew right away this was the right choice.



Your home offers a friendly atmosphere, great location, comfortable beds and a gorgeous deck to take in all of the beautiful surroundings.



Glenn, you are a wonderful host. Your caring manner was obvious from the time we first spoke to the time that we were driving home, when you called about a camera being left behind. Joyfully, we discovered the camera was yours.



The weather you ordered could not have been better!!



Thanks for everything!! We will be back.

Exceptional vacation home on a beautiful quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house very much. It is so comfortable it feels like home. The location is perfect, it is very peaceful, restful and relaxing with great views. Great deck space. The house is clean and comfortable and has everything you need. Our 3 kids loved the hot tub, playing on the deck, going out at low tide to find clams and horseshoe crabs. Truly a beautiful home and location. Our family has made a lot of great memories here. We just cannot say enough nice things about this place!

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Portland Or and met our Virginia family at this house for a vacation. The house was perfect for all of us, four adults and three children ages six and under. The view is absolutely stunning and the weather was great. We caught the pink moon and even captured some great pictures a few nights prior in the evening with the moon in the background. Wonderful family memories. The house is well stocked and well maintained inside and out. Good location for adventures to the beach towns in the area. We took the ferry to Cape May which is a must. Loved all the birds and our granddaughter enjoyed collecting her shells on the beach. The marsh across the street added to the peaceful atmosphere and the Prime Hook Refuge was great for walking and taking pictures of the wildlife. Thank you for sharing your home.

Speechless!

  • 5 of 5

We can't wait to book our next trip here. We couldn't have asked for anything more besides more time to spend at this beautiful cottage. It was like we had our own private beach. We even dug up clams and had them for dinner.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well appointed for both comfort and enjoyment. Glenn has done an exceptional job in providing most anything you could wish for during your stay. The house was very clean, even passing my wife's tough standards. Glenn was extremely easy and enjoyable to communicate with. I cannot say enough good things about Glenn and his property, Glenmor.

Lovely accommodations. Beach front, two decks, a hot tub, comfortable beds, excellent kitchen set up, and great communications with the owner. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place in the area. A real gem.

Great house, weather not so much...

  • 5 of 5

Well, the house is great!!! As other reviewers mentioned, there is just about everything a vacationer would ever need there. Such a nice touch to have the Keurig pods, live flowers, and fresh fruit ready for us too. Thank you, Glenn.

Weather-wise--which, of course, Glenn has no control over, was a different story. Nor'easter and super cold wind for 3 of the 5 days. High winds even blew the top off the hot tub and broke it's retaining strap--we had to hold it down with concrete blocks and couldn't use it. But, not to complain too much, it was certainly comfy in front of the fireplace with a great bay view. And we did get in some nice, although very cold, strolls along the bay (and the storm brought up so many huge shells that we even started ignoring them after a bit). We certainly will need to come back during a warmer season so we can appreciate this very nice house even more.

Thanks too, for allowing us to bring our two Weimaraners with us. They had a great time too.
