Property description

Only one block to the beach and yet right in the center of the historic district, the Abigail Adams is located in the historic James Leaming House, one of Cape May's most whimsical Victorian gingerbread houses.

The Garden Apartment is on the first floor at the rear of the house and it looks out to the back garden with its blooming blue and pink hydrangeas bushes. There is one bright and breezy bedroom with a queen size bed, a living room furnished in blues and gold with a full size sofa-bed and a fully equipped open galley kitchen complete with refrigerator, gas range, microwave and dishwasher. The apartment has air conditioners in the living room and bedroom and has cable TV, a DVD player and free wireless internet. The Garden Apartment has its own private entrance by the garden gate. The garden has a gas grill and picnic table and chairs for dining out on warm summer nights.

The Leaming Suite is located on the second floor. It has a private entrance as well and is furnished in bright and breezy colors with a fully equipped kitchen and full bright subway tiled bath. It is air conditioned in the kitchen and bedroom and has cable TV and DVD and wireless internet access.

The combined bedroom/living room has a comfy queen size bed and the room is decorated in shades of peach and green. There is a loveseat and chair, cable TV and DVD player with two windows, one overlooking the back garden.

The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and toaster as well as pots and pans, cutlery, dishes and glasses.

The bathroom has a Victorian style sink, marble tile floors and a tub/shower.

We provide free beach tags for our guests as well as free permit parking available at our offsite lot.

A short walk down Decatur Street will take you to the nicest beaches in town. After a full day at the beach you can enjoy a wonderful meal at one of our many fine Cape May restaurants or throw some steaks on the BBQ and chill out in the comfort of your own garden hideaway.

Park your car in our convenient lot on Bank Street and then everything is within easy walking distance. Bring your bicycles or rent one and take a ride out to our famous bird observatory at the Point or have lunch at Sunset Beach and watch the dolphins play in the surf.

You just couldn't pick a better location than Decatur Street if you want to be close to the beach but also surround yourself with the Victorian ambience of Cape May.

Give us a call today to reserve your special vacation week or weekend at the beach. See you soon!

Gas lit streets, the clip-clop of carriage horses, the scent of Victorian privet hedges and roses spilling out through ornate wrought iron fences--this is Cape May. But Cape May is also family fun at the beach, put-put golf, surrey bikes for the whole crew, gourmet popcorn and every variety of fudge and salt water taffy you can think of. Your summer apartment on Decatur Street is right in the middle of all that Cape May has to offer. An ideal location to explore, have fun and then to chill out in the back garden or in your comfortable little beach home at the Abigail Adams Apartments in Cape May.
