Cozy guest house on the Navesink River. Across from Hartshorne Woods, 4 miles from Sandy Hook Beach. Come enjoy the quiet, secluded 20+ acres of ponds, orchards and meadows. All peaceful adults from every background welcome.

The space

Located on an 150+ year old estate, our guest house is furnished with timeless antiques and modern amenities to accent your stay. Enjoy the quiet landscape, surrounded by old growth trees, nestled between the Navesink River and Hartshorne Woods. Bring your boat, kayak or SUP board for river tours out to Sandy Hook beach. Bring your mountain bike for world-class rides through Hartshorne Woods. Or just relax on the porch or dock and read a book!

Guest access

The entire cottage is yours, but it's located behind the main house, closer to the road. You have uninterrupted access to the grounds and dock! Enjoy bird watching, fishing and crabbing without leaving the grounds. (Don't forget your gear.) We provide two camp chairs, picnic blankets and beach towels and umbrella.

Interaction with guests

As hosts, we will be happy to provide you with local knowledge of beach access, incredible runs & rides through Hartshorne Woods, good eats, farmer's markets, grocery stores (Whole Foods & Trader Joe's), and local ferry's to NYC (Seastreak). We will check you in, then leave you to it!

Quiet, scenic, and secluded, yet minutes from shopping and the high -speed ferry to New York. Mae was a wonderful host and we'd stay at the cottage again.

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. The cottage was cozy, clean and had everything we needed. Great location, quiet, serene. Highly recommend this place for a long weekend. In fact I wish we would have stayed longer. The host was great & super helpful.

We loved everything about the cottage. Perfectly secluded with lots of hiking trails but close enough to the beach, markets, restaurants, etc... Mae and Lucas were very responsible when needed and overall great host. Highly recommended!

Mae was a great host! She was very responsive to any questions we had. She and her husband kindly lit a fire for us when we mentioned interest in the fire pit. And she let us borrow her season pass for Sandy Hook. We had a great time!

Mae is a wonderful host. She was warm, welcoming and a great communicator. Her guest house was comfortable, clean and located in an idyllic setting along the river. Bird-watching from the dock, as well as nearby Sandy Hook, was terrific! Convenient to many great restaurants, hiking/biking trails and NYC ferry. We highly recommend Tuesday burger night at Fromagerie and the Sunday Farmers Market in Red Bank.
