a place: Renting

The way to make out on renting is to go en masse! We were 3 families sharing the 2nd floor of this very nice duplex. Each couple had their own bedroom, and the kids all fit in the fourth room. The occasional overnight guest or couple had plenty of room sleeping on the couches in the large living area. Living area included: kitchen, dining, sitting, and attached deck. We also had a washer/dryer and outdoor shower (to help keep down the sand in the house!)

It used to be that you had to get your rental by February or March. Prices have gotten so high in the past few years that rentals can be found up to the beginning of the season. Even during season there may be some available. However, for best selection, book early.

The Chalfonte: Very Victorian

Located in the historic, victorian area of Cape May. The Chalfonte gives you the feel of being in the past. Your room doesn't have a phone or television! We also didn't have any air-conditioning, just a ceiling fan. It was nice to hear the clip-clopping of the horses from the carriage tours pass by every half hour or so. My husband, who likes modern amenities, did not like this place at all. (especially sharing the bathroom with others)

If you have small children, you are placed in a separate area (in the back!) of the hotel. So as not to upset the ears of the other genteel patrons I suppose..
Also the children are not allowed to eat in the main dining room. There is a separate dining area for children.
In summation, if tots annoy you, you'd probably like staying at the Chalfonte!

The Manse Inn: Bed and Breakfast

I talked my husband into taking me to the shore on a 4th of July weekend with no reservations. Luck was with us, we found this cute B&B close to the shore and Washington Street Mall. My husband wasn't too happy to be at a B&B (the lack of modern conveniences and a shared toilet). This place did have air-conditioning though.
I liked it a lot!

The room we were in had the fire escape outside of our window, so we weren't allowed to lock our door, just in case of a fire! Another bit of ammo for a non-B&B enthusiast. (you know who that is by now, right?)

The Shoobie Shack (SURFIN7TH's House)

The price was right (walk the dog every afternoon), 5 minutes walk from the Ocean. Use of a bike for the duration of the trip

Look for Realty signs in the front yards: Renting at the Shore

If you can remember, take some pictures of the place BEFORE you unpack, it's all downhill after that...

shore digs: The after look

It is your obligation to have the place clean and ready for the next occupants at the end of your stay. Unless you want to pay for the cleaning service. We didn't want to pay. We are a cheap bunch. So we try to keep the place tidy as we go...

Big Timber Lake: Camping Resort

Large, well-run campground in Cape May Court House. (a town teeming with campgrounds) Great for families. Has everything: pools, lake, planned activities, and much more. Close to shore points.

We don't have a camper. We rented a mobile home for a very reasonable price. (check website for up to date pricing)
The place had living area, kitchen, two bedrooms, bath. Very clean and located in the hub of the campground. I highly recommend this place for anyone with small children.
