INTRODUCING THE COTTAGES AT BEACH PLUM FARM
Come home to Beach Plum Farm, where alarm clocks are the sounds of the rooster crowing and every night the stars put on a show. Join in the rhythm of farm life when you stay in the charming cottages and barns on our farm. Arrive and leave your car and be given keys to a golf cart and bicycles. Have the fridge stocked with fresh eggs and meats at turndown in the evening so that you can cook your own breakfast in the morning – or to come to the main barn and join others for breakfast; to participate in the egg harvest, or potato or strawberry or whatever harvest; to take a dip in the pool set in an orchard or simply to wind down the evening sitting around a campfire, enjoying the night sounds on the farm. Our farm team will offer personalized service to help you enjoy your time at Beach Plum Farm.
There are five residences on the farm – two cottages and three barns – sleeping from 2 – 12 in various configurations; featuring cooks' kitchens, screened porches, wood stoves and comfy rooms.
The cottages and barns are equipped with full kitchens, living rooms, dining areas, screened porches and washer/dryers. They also include Cape Resorts signature bedding, complimentary WIFI, access to the farm’s swimming pool as well as Congress Hall’s beach service.
The Winona Cottage
Sleeping 2 – 12, this cottage is one of the original Sears, Roebuck, and Co. mail order homes. Called the Modern Homes program, Sears sold over 75,000 homes between 1908 and 1940. The Winona was a popular model between 1927 and 1932. The arts and crafts cottage vibe runs throughout the house with its beautiful floors and airy screened southern-facing porch. For cottage reservations and information, call: (833) 327-6268.
The Whalers Cottage
Sleeping 2 – 8, this cottage dates back to the late 1700’s, making it one of the oldest homes on Cape Island. Philip Hand was a descendant of Mayflower pilgrims who found their way to the southern tip of New Jersey chasing the burgeoning whaling industry. Philip established a plantation and when his daughter Martha was married, he built a home on a parcel of land as a wedding gift. With its winding staircase and fireplace from the 1700’s and special kids' loft, the Whaler's Cottage will take you back to the frontier days on Cape Island and was the homestead for what has become Beach Plum Farm. For cottage reservations and information, call: (833) 327-6268.
Sleeping 2 – 8, the Plum Barn dates to 1850’s and was used as a carriage house. Converted to a home in the 1950’s, it has been restored featuring the original beams and beadboard. The Owl Barn is set atop a rise next to a towering dawn redwood. The Hidden Barn is nestled in a grove of evergreens. Both were built in 2018 by the same Lancaster County, Pennsylvania family who built the farm’s main barn in 2015. Using Pennsylvania Hemlock and old fashioned mortise and tenon joinery, the timber frames were raised on a chilly March day and are held together with wooden pegs. All three barns have a rustic charm, full kitchens, spacious screened porches and wood stoves. For cottage reservations and information, call: (833) 327-6268.
During our Summer Preview, the cottages are available for Saturday to Saturday rentals. They will be fully set up with linens upon arrival and include a weekly tidy. The introductory preview prices will be available for the summer of 2018 only.
