About Kathleen Drake

My family and I live just outside of Baltimore, Maryland. We spend as much time as we can in Cape May!

Kathleen Drake purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Kathleen Drake chose Historic District

This was my childhood vacation home. I have many fond memories of Cape May and my husband and I were married on the beach in Cape May. This home is being lovingly restored and updated so that we may enjoy it for many years to come.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is a Sears Kit House built in the 1930s and renovated in 2014. We believe this house is a one of kind rental opportunity in historic Cape May. You can enjoy the beauty of an older home with a completely new interior.

The house was clean and in a great location for everything. We were able to walk pretty much everywhere and the beach was nice and close.

Beautiful home close to everything

We have stayed at this property for two consecutive summers now. It is beautifully appointed, comfortable, and within a short walking distance to all that Cape May has to offer. The owner is incredibly kind, accommodating, and responsive. I would highly recommend this home to all!

Perfect Cape May cottage!

  • 5 of 5

House was great! A top notch renovation! Big yard, a lot of storage underneath the house of beach stuff and bikes. Quiet street, but close to the mall and the beach. Kathleen was super to work with and quick to respond to questions.

We love staying here when we visit Cape May!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying here because we love the house so much and Kathy is easy to work with and helpful. This house is updated, clean and the location is perfect - three blocks from the beach and shopping/restaurants. We rarely use our car, which is a nice treat - we walked everywhere! Our favorite part of the house other than location is the porch. Many wonderful early mornings and relaxing afternoons were spent there. We look forward to visiting again next year!
