About Owner Charlie

Call me anytime, we built the 'Shack' new in 2005. My grandparents are from the area and I knew the beauty that was there in the salt marshes and waterways.

Owner Charlie purchased this house in 2005

Why Owner Charlie chose New Jersey

Cause it's beautiful, and different. Alive with migrating birds, Red Knots, Snow geese, and other wildlife, otters, muskrats, Bald eagles, I've seen a Golden eagle there.

What makes this house unique

Has docks for your boat, boats including PWC ride on docks. Contact me if you want to bring your boats and skis.

Great 'Hideout'

Very nice area.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our short trip to Bay Point, very nice area and more remote than expected for New Jersey. Water was deep enough even in low tide for our boat which was a treat as we are used to the very shallow waters of the Chesapeake! The house has a nice bedroom on the second floor and we enjoyed looking through the telescope at the awesome view from the third floor.

Beautiful vacation house overlooking Cedar Creek near Delaware River.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed sunrise and sunset on the deck. Huge master bedroom on the second floor. Spacious deck allowed everyone to have our meals and take in the scenery. Caught a dozen blue crabs every day for scrumptious snacks and our son caught plenty of perch and croakers for dinner. View from the top floor outlook gives a panoramic picture of the area. Could use wifi, but hey, we are here to relax for the week. Looking to come back in the future.

Beautiful views of wildlife

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Knapp Shack for the 4th of July weekend. The house is beautiful and large enough to accommodate all of us comfortable. The back deck is the perfect place for meals and just relaxing. We saw an eagle and lots of turtle. Fishing was great right off the dock!!! The house had everything we needed to cook meals as well as entertainment. Great location and close to town when we needed supplies. You will need to bring your own pillow cases and linens as its not supplied with the house. Also, be aware of the huge biting flies where you park your car. The flies are not a problem in the back of the house but getting inside the house from the front was a bit scary with them swarming the car. Overview we had a wonderful time and have lots of memories of our holiday. The owner Charlie was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. You will have an amazing time at the Knapp shack!!

Natures getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the "shack"! Very peaceful and secluded and the owner, Charlie, was very helpful and accommodating! If possible you should attempt to bring some sort of watercraft for fishing or other recreational purposes as the green head flies can be a little pesky close to shore at certain times of the day. Overall it was a fantastic getaway! I would definitely rent from this owner again!

Very peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at the "Shack". We enjoyed watching the Ospreys and Bald Eagles fish and chase each other as well as star gazing at night on the dock! The peace and quiet was wonderful! No cars or sirens just the wind and waves!! We kayaked daily in the creek and the Perch fishing was great!! Went to AC for the annual Airshow. What a treat. All in all it was one of the best vacations to date. Thanks for sharing this secluded and peaceful place.

the house is beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The house was ready for us with everything that was needed for our stay. My family really enjoyed fishing off the dock. We caught enough fish to have lunch one day for the 8 of us. Your neighbors are great people, they invited us to dinner and we all had a blast. Thanks for the use of you home. It was a home away from home
