Cumberland Lodge/ LARGE ECONOMY LODGE

 The property was the perfect size and set up for our family. Everything we needed and more. Loved the fooseball table and board games. The décor was nice and lots of spaces for us to spread out in.I noted that in the reviews a person mentioned about it being time to upgrade the TV and to my surprise when we got there a new tv was there not the one in the photo! This impressed me as they look to maintain and keep their property relevant and listen o feedback! Absolutely loved our stay! Thank you!

Magnificent on Mill - beautiful, private and sunny

 The size of the property and the layout of the home. It is a great spot for a bigger group and there was plenty of room for relaxing. It is also within walking distance of town and the boardwalk.

 The Big dinning table is very good for a big group of people having meals together ! Comfortable lounge ! Kitcken is nice with varieties of utensils. It is a bit of challenge for the driver to drive into the driveway!
