This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to stay on Sandy Hook in Gateway National Recreation Area, on historic Officers Row in Fort Hancock, NJ.

You’ll love my place because of privacy and seclusion and beautiful sunsets from this bayfront home . My place is good for couples.

The space
This home lives like a wonderful cottage on the bay. Three bedrooms upstairs all with bay views, and a smaller bunk bed room for the kids or extra guests. Everything is clean, updated, and tastefully decorated.

Other things to note
There are several guarded beaches very nearby to relax and enjoy yourself. ( there is also the largest nude beach on the east coast ) The oldest operational light house in our country is in the backyard. It is also a museum you can visit. The History house is located a few doors down and is worth the free tour. Battery Gunnison is occasionally open for tours. But worth a visit, even if closed. Fort Hancock is just full oh history and things to say. Definitely bring your bikes, or rent one a few blocks away. While at it, bring your fishing rod, clam rake, kite, and running shoes, or flip flops. It's a special secluded spot, but also a short drive to ferry service that serves New York City. This location provides peace and quiet along with access to a quick NYC adventure.

Location

Highlands, New Jersey, United States

This home was built in 1939, and sits among mansions on officer's row in Fort Hancock on Sandy Hook NJ. We have leased and restored the house from the National Park Service. What a wonderful opportunity to stay in the park, and the bay views are quite spectacular.

I have been going to Sandy hook since I was 4 years old. I remember when Fort Hancock was an active army post. I camped out there while in Boy Scouts. It has always been a magical place for me. We were the first ones to sign a lease with the National Park Service to restore a home on officer's row. This is the first home on officer's row in Sandy Hook / Fort Hancock to be lovingly restored. We use this home regularly for our own family events. We hope to pave the way for others to save these magnificent structures on Sandy Hook.
