About the property

Roomy 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage with beautiful gardens and decks on a quiet st.

Mohegan Wood is a two story beach-town cottage and is a great option to the typical bare bones beach bungalows. Away from the crowds, noise, commotion, you can actually relax and enjoy the peace and comfort while still being at the beach. Everything is within walking or biking distance. Please see our list of amenities for the many extras we provide that others don’t such as beach passes and bicycles. Additionally we do not charge any additional fees, the price you see is the price you get, excluding the what the website adds.

There is central air throughout as well as ceiling fans and walls of bright windows if you prefer the fresh air. The house is wired with speakers in every room with individual control and three flat screen HD T.V.’s. Free Wi-Fi is available as well as ipod/music player hookup. There is a well supplied kitchen with all of the tools and pantry items a Chef could appreciate. There is also a renter contributed wet bar available to compliment your cooking. Outside we have an outdoor gas grill and gardens for you to help yourself to with a variety of two dozen different kinds of seasonal fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables. We have several bikes for your use, two cruisers, one vintage rat bike cruiser and a Schwinn tandem. For the beach there are beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach bags and beach towels.

The bottom floor has an open room design connecting the sun room, dining room, living room, bar and kitchen. Reclaimed barn wood is used on most of the walls with 12 foot high ceiling in the living and dining rooms. . The master bedroom and bathroom are also downstairs at the back of the house away from the street. By the back door are the laundry room and pantry.

The Master bedroom has a queen sized bed, mid-century dressers, closet, sliding glass door to a private porch, ceiling fan and a ceiling dropdown flat screen T.V. The master bathroom has a real beach feel with grasscloth walls and even an aromatic steam room with shower.

Upstairs there is the second bedroom with full size bed, vintage dressers and closet in addition to the loft with office, sofa bed, more closets, T.V. area and sliding door to private balcony with outside steps down to the deck below. Between the loft and bedroom is a large full bathroom.

The decks and gardens are relaxing and large enough for a variety of "feels". There is music, lighting, several chairs and benches, umbrella table and a long reclaimed 19th century butchers block table.

We have off-street parking on the driveway with a converted carriage house for storage of fishing and surf gear.

About Karin and Will

Will and Karin are both in the hospitality/restaurant business in Manhattan. Karin first fell in love with Manasquan when she first visited as a child and has been a regular ever since. Will grew up traveling and was introduced to Manasquan ten years ago. Together, their goal for Mohegan Wood is for every visitor to fall in love with all Manasquan has to offer in addition to it's famous beach.

Karin and Will purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Karin and Will chose Jersey Shore

Mohegan Wood is a beautiful, soulful home that Karin and Will use themselves in addition to sharing it with others. Because of this the house is maintained and cared for, with more put into it than an "investment" property. Quality is always the first consideration rather than what's cheapest.

What makes this cottage unique

There are many benefits to staying at Mohegan Wood but the primary benefit has to be that when staying here you feel at home like a local instead of visiting like a tourist.

Awesome for Fall

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect little getaway for a fall girls weekend. Will was super nice upon greeting us when we arrived. Many quirky, interesting and artistic touches throughout make this a fun property to stay at. There is a very happy vibe here. Beds were super comfortable and the owners provided all of the comforts needed from home (linens, towels, toiletries, coffee, etc).

Thanks for a great stay. I'll be back next fall. ☺️

Great house in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The quality and character of the house exceeded our expectations. The house was extremely clean and well maintained. The convenient location close to the center of town, the beach, local restaurants and the boardwalk was first rate.

We had such a great time. The house is comfortable and the patio in the back perfect for having a BBQ.

Great location, close enough to walk to the town and a few minutes car ride to a beautiful beach.

Amazing stay at Mohegan Wood!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoying our time renting Mohegan Wood for a week. The house was great! Plenty of room, fresh vegetables from the home garden, and lots of cute decor. The house was less than 10 min from the beach and was about 2 minutes away from town where there were plenty of great restaurants to eat at. We highly recommend staying here!

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular house!! It is located in a cozy and quiet neighborhood in walking distance to downtown for shopping and eating. It is just short distance from the beach. The house was clean, cozy, and has an awesome private deck with beautiful flowers, garden, and landscaping. Karin and Will were so accommodating. They made the stay easy and were flexible with our arrival and departure time. If I were to take a trip back to the Jersey Shore I would stay there again without hesitation.

Manasquan is a perfect location. Besides the greatest beach at The Shore, we are close enough to New York City and Atlantic City for day (or night) trips. Also, in addition to the nearby arcade boardwalks of Asbury Park, Point Pleasant Beach and Seaside Heights, Six Flags Great Adventure is nearby as well.
