Delaware Bay Country House, is the original up land 4 (+) bedroom Victorian farm house that has belonged to various oyster farmers, horseshoe crab harvesters, and agricultural farmers since the late 1800s.

During the mid-1900s, Agustino and Julia Luciano, two Philadelphians, opted not to purchase Diamond Beach in Wildwood, and, instead, established a vacation retreat known as “Gus’s Beach and Fishing Pier” on the property now known as Tree Haven.

Tree Haven History

The property is now devoted to the site of two comfortable getaways, Delaware Bay Country House and Delaware Bay Cottage.

This property was known historically as the site of Rebecca and Joseph Camp’s King Crab Plant in the early 1900s. The Camps also operated an oyster farm along the Delaware Bay frontage of the west end of the property.

The Lucianos rented out some small dune cottages along their Delaware Bay frontage. They also rented the rights to oyster farm in their riparian grant to East Point Oyster, a firm from Greenwich, NJ. Later, Julia operated the farm house as a guest house.  The Lucianos’ dune cottages no longer exist, in their place, is Delaware Bay Cottage, a separate 2 bedroom holiday rental.
