The owners of The Bay Shack first started visiting Fenwick Island in 1963. During those initial years they would rent a small apartment for a week. The first property they purchased was in 1967 which coincidentally is located across the street from their current location.
The Bay Shack is situated on a parcel of land they purchased in 1977 and was constructed in 1986. They also had a rental property on the ocean side of the island from 1973 to 1992.
During their years in Fenwick the owners' have enjoyed off season time in Fenwick and the fun activities. During the season the property has been a rental.
Over the years they have witnessed hurricanes, tremendous growth and the beach road going from two lanes to four lanes. Even with the additional building since their first visit, Fenwick Island remains one of the quietest towns on the New Jersey and Delaware Shores.
In summary, this is an all star property owned by a great family which includes three all star kids, plus their spouses and nine outstanding grandchildren.
