The Carman- Norton House is available for weekend rentals until mid-September, but owners will consider mid-week or weekly stays, if requested. 1.5 miles from the Delaware Bay and 2.5 miles from the beautiful ocean beaches of Cape May, it has 5 large bedrooms and 3 full baths. 2 bedrooms and a tub/shower bath are on the first floor, 2 more bedrooms and a shower bath on the second floor, and a large master suite with soaking tub, shower and access to a large deck.
Feel like you've stepped back in time but with all the amenities of 2017. The oldest part of the house dates back to the late 1600's and has been lovingly restored and decorated to reflect that era.
A large backyard for fun and games; a brand new 15X26 pool with locking child gate for safety; an outdoor shower; four separate outdoor seating spaces for your enjoyment. Comes with 2 parking passes for downtown Cape May, beach and pool toys, rafts and beach tags.
The whole house is yours with plenty of outdoor parking. Owners are on site to answer questions and handle any problems but removed from the rental area.
We love our guests and enjoy meeting new people but are happy to respect their privacy and be totally unobtrusive, if they desire.
The house has had no animals living in it or even visiting (our son is allergic), so if this is a concern, this house is perfect for you. We do have chickens, but they live way in the back of our 1 acre property (and no rooster) and would be happy to give you some eggs.
- No children in the pool without adult supervision and locking gate must be used when pool is not in use
- Outdoor shower must be used after beach before entering house
It is recommended that small children stay in the 2 downstairs bedrooms if stairs are a problem. A baby gate is provided to limit access to second floor.
Joe and Emily have owned guest houses and an inn in Cape May since 1998. They love interacting with their guests (although will allow plenty of privacy if desired!)
They have traveled abroad; have 4 children and 8 grandchildren. Joe hosts local trivia nights and Emily is the retail director for a non-profit in town. They like movies (used to own video stores), music (Joe also has a sound company) and entertaining. Emily loves baking and your breakfasts will include her baked goods. They love meeting new people and are looking forward to meeting YOU.
