About the Owner
My elderly parents, Fred and Sue Allen, own the Barnacle, and I manage the rentals. They live in California, near UCLA. My dad's family has owned property on Barlett's Harbor since 1914, and they both continue to fly east each summer. Since I live closer, in NJ, tenants can contact me easily. I am a piano teacher. My husband and I have a teen-age son, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Our summer truly wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Barnacle! We love the quiet and the fabulous views from the deck, especially the sunsets! The house is rustic and cozy, just perfect for us. The studio is perfect for visitors, allowing them to have their own space as well. The Allens are wonderful owners, and do a great job taking care of the property. We are counting down the days till we can come back to the Barnacle.
