About Sally Pressman
As a family with a young child, we love spending summer days at the beach. We enjoy both an active lifestyle, entertaining for our large family and lazy afternoons on the porch. We are also discerning travelers and look for a mix of history and modern luxury in our vacation accommodations.
Sally Pressman purchased this House in 2011
Why Sally Pressman chose Beach Haven
We have spent our summers in Beach Haven for over 20 years. We love the white-sand beach, family friendly vibe, quiet streets, elegant historic homes, and easy walks to nice restaurants and ice cream shops. While the summer is the main draw, Beach Haven also shines in the spring and fall, attracting families to weddings and special events such as Chowder Fest. Easily accessible from both New York and Philadelphia, it is the perfect getaway.
What makes this House unique
The huge wrap around the porch is one of the biggest draws of the house. Gather your entire family for morning coffee, sumptuous dinners, and evening relaxation. The kitchen will be brand new for summer 2019 and will be a big plus for chefs and big families who love to cook. It will be the modern heart of the home where you will love to gather and prepare meals and drinks. You will rarely find the charm of an original Victorian that has been fully updated with the modern conveniences of today's vacation lifestyle.

Home away from home
This house is amazing! So much room for a large family. The kitchen was stocked with every appliance you would ever want, all utensils and more! The bedrooms are spacious and lovely. Perfect amount of everything in every room. My kids enjoyed the yard, the porch, the street and how close it was to everything we needed. Short walk to the beach and friends.
Sally has an amazing house filled with everything you need....book filled with tips and menus, all bathrooms were fully stocked, cleaning supplies and a suggestion on a great rental company for sheets and towels! It was a perfect house for my family! We are booking it again for next year!
Want a great house!
We rented this beautiful house for a long weekend for my son's wedding. It was wonderful. The large porch was perfect. Had a brunch after the wedding and what a great place to sit and visit with all our guests. Couldn't have thought of a better place to stay. The kitchen had everything we needed. Absolutely loved the decor, location and size of this house!!!!!
A lovely Victorian home in the heart of Beach Haven just steps from the beach and walking distance to shopping, restaurants, the all important Do Me a Flavor and Murphy's! The house has been updated with all the modern
conveniences, newly remodeled bathrooms and a main floor suit for those who choose not to do steps. The kitchen has all of the appointments for cooking and serving a large group.
It takes a minute to get to the beach and another minute in the other direction to get to the bay to watch the sunset or use the widows walk up top and you can see all of Beach Haven from there!
Our family of over 14 have been vacationing here for 4 years, we especially love the huge front porch. Sitting out in the morning, afternoon or night is one of our favorite aspects of the house and the owner has provided great seating and tables that fit a large group like ours!
It is a great house for families with young children too.
We love our LBI vacation speciffically Beach Haven it is the best we have a blast here every year!
Historic Family Rental
We have a large family and this house was perfect for our yearly getaway. We kept outgrowing previous houses and this house fit us comfortably and allowed us to have our own spaces. We were close to the beach and some of our favorite places (Pearl Street Market, Murphy's and the Green). We were also able to walk easily into to town for meals and the amusement park. The house included all the basic essentials for both kids and adults. It is a historic house that feels lived in and comfortable. We loved the fantastic front porch with seating for everyone and a backyard area where the kids could play. We look forward to a return stay next year.
great plae for a party/ reunion
Had 8 couples for a significant bday celebration. Couldn't think of a better place to have friends come together and celebrate. House was the perfect setting for late night gathering on the generous porches. comfortable bedrooms, everything we needed from beach chairs and umbrellas to a well stocked kitchen. Look forward to renting again.
Delightful home for large family
Our family has been vacationing on LBI for more than 40 years. We've outgrown our previous rental locations, so this was our first year at Penn Raven Cottage, and there were 17 of us, from age 6 to 83. Our family can't say enough good things about Penn Raven. From the size of the porch (huge), to the number and size of bedrooms and bathrooms, to the amount of interior living space - it's all wonderful. The first floor bedrooms are great for anyone who doesn't like to climb stairs. There was enough space for the family to be together at meals (most of which we ate on that wonderful porch), as well as space to spread out throughout the house singly or in small groups for reading, games, etc. The large yard had plenty of space for folks to play croquet and bocci ball on a luxurious grass lawn.The house is clean and well-maintained, the furnishings are beautiful and the Victorian charm impressed us all. Because it's right in the heart of Beach Haven, you can walk or bike to anything that you need, from groceries to the pharmacy to Bay Village and Fantasy Island.
The owners were incredibly responsive to a small problem (the dishwasher had a leak) and sent out the repairman immediately.
We would recommend Penn Raven to any large family. We'll definitely be back next year and anticipate that we'll be coming back to Penn Raven for years to come.
In the historic district of Beach Haven, within a few steps of all the restaurants, bars, stores and supermarket. The house is also within a few steps to the ocean.
