Today the Manasquan Inlet remains an exceptional natural attraction as a waterway to the Atlantic Ocean for boaters, sightseeing boats and fishing enthusiasts.
The Tower Cottage was originally built on Sunset Lake, which is now named Little Silver Lake; it is one of the first “grand homes” built in Point Pleasant Beach. Throughout its 125-year history, this house was a private summer retreat for those seeking the cool breezes and sandy white beaches away from the hustle and bustle of the Philadelphia and Trenton, NJ city limits.
In recent years, the house had been used as a guest house in the summer months as a refuge for its guests who would visit from the growing populated cities of Northern, NJ.
One of the magnificent features of this house was the tower which housed a widow’s walk and cupola high atop having breathtaking views of the sunrise over the blue Atlantic Ocean. Early in the twentieth century, as folklore has been told, a horrific hurricane brought havoc to the area and the tower was destroyed.
