After very thoughtful consideration, it is the decision of the GFS PA Executive Board and General Council that Holiday House will not open for summer 2021 to guests and groups. Unfortunately, there are too many factors that make it not feasible to open this year. We will be looking for volunteers for projects and maintenance this summer so we can open strong in the summer of 2022. We pray you have a safe year and come to stay with us next summer!
House Holiday House is owned by GFS in the Diocese of Pennsylvania and is the last of over 30 such GFS houses and lodges which existed in the early 1900’s. Offering sea breezes, porches with rocking chairs, pleasant rooms, two daily meals, and a warm and friendly atmosphere, it is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day with single, double and triple occupancy rooms for individuals, families and Christian affiliated organizations. Maximum occupancy is 42.
Located in the Historic District of Cape May, it has 4 floors; on the first floor you will find a living room, parlor, a dining room that seats 60, fully equipped kitchen and cozy chapel. GFS branches and dioceses hold summer retreats at Holiday House. Senior GFS girls can work in the dining room and kitchen as a summer job.
Pricing, activities and job openings are posted on the Holiday House Facebook page.
