Victorian B&B with all the modern amenities in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Best location in Cape May. In the heart of Cape May one block to town and two blocks to the beach. Huge gourmet kitchen for cooking up delicious family sea food feasts and serving in elegant dining room. Front porch was everyone's favorite spot.

Comfort in Style

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here. Arrangements were very easy to make. Everything you can possibly need in a vacation home was at our fingertips. We had a dinner party one evening for 12 of our friends. The house handles this in style. From a spacious dinning room to a gourmet kitchen we were able to share a evening of fun with everyone. The evening started with cocktails on the window enclosed front porch. The old fashioned street lights enhanced the Victorian beauty of Cape May. Five bedrooms most with their own bathrooms allowed us to extend the fun overnight. The location is central to the beach and shopping. There is nowhere better!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family -- four generations -- stayed here for a long weekend. It was our first time in Cape May and we loved it. The house itself was wonderful with king-sized beds and private baths for all bedrooms and ample living, cooking, relaxing, and gathering space throughout. Its location was ideal -- just a short walk to the beach, restaurants, shops, and the grocery store. We could only stay four days this time, but we are already planning to come back for a week next year! The management company was extremely accommodating and easy to work with as well.

Comfort, Convenience and Elegance

  • 5 of 5

Once you stay here it will be your go to place every year. Located in walking distance of shopping, dining, the beach and attractions. What a home - the décor is fantastic. The gourmet kitchen and dinning room enhance the enjoyment of your meals or even that bottle of wine. As someone who does not like to waste a moment of vacation time the home was spotless. We unpacked and were on our way just that quick. The bedrooms were spacious and well appointed with a bathroom in each room. People often judge their vacation by the things they do or the spots they visit. The comfort of this home makes the time you spend in it as special as the area it is in. Can't wait to return!
