Located In The Heart Of Beach Haven This Property Has Been Newly Rebuilt
Located in the oldest town on Long Beach Island, this home started its life in about 1870 as the Beach Haven Lumber Company. The main building, along with the numerous out-buildings served the construction and home needs of LBI and the neighboring mainland towns. One of the smaller buildings which remains to this day, The Cottage, was the carriage house for the old Baldwin Hotel.
Converted to a residence in the early 1900s, this home is now on the National Registry of Historic Homes. Over the years, the main house and the cottage have been a residence and beach house to a few families. In 2011, Hurricane Sandy left her mark with about 2 feet of water throughout the cottage and main house.
Major renovations and repairs were completed in 2015. The Lumber Yard is now open to guests.
Decorated in consultation with SFE, Inc, the main house boasts a designer kitchen, dining room seating for 10, living room, powder room and full laundry area, and a TV/media room with a flat screen cable television. Internet is also provided. There are three master suites on the second level each with a queen size bed and an en suite bathroom. On the third floor there is a twin bedroom for 2 and bunk room for 4 with a shared full bath. The main house has full laundry area with Bosch washer and dryer, iron and table top ironing board.
The first floor of The Cottage has a full efficiency kitchen with a bistro dining area, an open area living room with a flat screen cable TV and sleeper sofa, and a powder room with a stacked washer-dryer, as well. The second floor of the cottage has a shared bathroom with shower. There are 2 bedrooms: one queen bedroom and one single bedroom.
Restored to the design of its time, the exterior of the property has not been neglected. There are two private hot & cold showers each with a dressing area, a gas grille, and a dining area with seating for 12 on the deck off the house. Enjoy morning coffee or a quite place to get away and read on the private balcony off bedroom #3.
Not to be forgotten, children of all ages can enjoy the dipping pool which is only 4 1/2 feet deep. But the best is the full wraparound porch in the front of the main house. Sit, relax, and enjoy the church carillon at 12 and 5. The beautifully landscaped yard with grass, trees and flowers would be an ideal spot for an intimate wedding celebration.
Park the car and forget it. The Lumber Yard is located within walking distance to LBI’s white sandy beaches, bayside boating, great island shopping, many restaurants, Fantasy Island Amusement and Water Park for young and older alike, as well as Veteran’s Park for concerts and other activities.
Private chef, massage, concierge and many other services available - information provided on site and upon request. Need more space for a wedding, family gathering or other event, consider the rental property next door.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Year round Resident of LBI
Why the Owner Chose Beach Haven, NJ, USA:
Over 145 years old, this house and cottage have stood strong through many storms but Hurricane Sandy had taken its toll and it needed to be brought into the 21 Century to face whatever is to come. This is a great property in a great location and will continue to be enjoyed by many in the years to come.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
After 18 months, the renovation is complete. Both houses were raised over three feet to meet flood elevation requirements. The structures were then stripped to the studs to replace outdated knob and tube wiring and plumbing, add needed services and provide support to the old bones. Not surprisingly we found the floors and walls had kept watch over old medicine bottles, newsprint and other artifacts dating back to the very early 1900's. The Cottage, which served the historic Baldwin Hotel, was insulated with sea grass. Now complete, both structures remain in their footprint but you can still find many remnants of the bygone days.

Our family enjoyed staying at this home in Aug 2018.
It was very nice and close to the beach and the other amenities of Beach Haven. You really never have to get in your car. All within walking distance.
It was also pleasant to work with the owner. You can tell that she puts a lot of effort into keeping her home in great shape for all vacationers that stay there.

This home was beautiful and very well equipped.
It is close enough to the beach that our 2 year old grandson could walk.
The pool is in the shade in the afternoon and that was lovely.
The owner was available and helpful.

We have enjoyed staying at the Lumberyard for the last two years during our family vacations to LBI! The house is beautiful and walking distance to everything you could possibly need... especially the beach. Working with Denise for the last couple years has been a pleasure. She is very accommodating and is always available if you need anything. We have made so many family memories at this house! Would highly recommend!

This was our second year in a row staying at Denise's lovely beach house. We had our extended families join us for another wonderful beach vacation. The kids really enjoyed the pool and hanging out on the back deck. The Lumberyard is a beautiful home and Denise is a pleasure to work with. Best of all the home is in a terrific location, close to everything you need. Thanks Denise!

Denise's home provided an exceptionally comfortable, well equipped and thoughtfully planned accommodation for a large family's week at the beach. Denise is a kind, helpful and easily available host. All of us had a wonderful week and I can recommend this propertywithout any reservations.

Denise, the owner, was incredibly responsive as we secured this home a year in advance of my nephew's wedding. She confirmed the week of as well as day of. She was at the house when we arrived with keys and spent time making sure we knew where things were and how to work the a/c and other electronics. Her home spaciously provided privacy for adults with their ensuite bathrooms, plenty of room for kids and the separate cottage was perfect for the post college kids. House is extremely well maintained, super clean, and open layout is wonderful for family gatherings. The outside dining was peaceful with the fountain in the pool running and birds happily chirping. The fridge had plenty of space and kitchen had everything you need, including nice dishware and two Bosch dishwashers, plus another well equipped kitchen in the cottage. Loved the attention to detail such as the low light that automatically blinks on when you use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Location is ideal, close to the beach and walking distance to restaurants, mini golf, and the amusement park! Denise was very accommodating and made our family time that much more special. Also, my mom's return flight to Florida was cancelled due to hurricane Irma and we are so thankful that Denise had the heart to let my mom spend a couple extra days. We highly recommend this home.
One of the nicest aspects of renovating and offering this property for rental is the lovely people it has been my pleasure to meet. I am pleased that so many have enjoyed their stay and my home has contributed to their comfort and happy vacation memories.
