Our History

The Short Story

Purchased in 1934 by Milton and Marie Griscom, this historic beachfront property is now owned and operated by their granddaughter, Vicki Allison who rents the 10 bedroom house to families and visitors year-round.

This summer retreat provides the ideal location...steps to the beach, arcade, boardwalk shops, and nearby restaurants. Only ten minutes on foot to the mall and great restaurants.
