Dear Pam & Crew:
It is with great pleasure that I provide you with this recommendation for the Carroll Villa Hotel and Mad Batter Restaurant in Cape May, New Jersey. It absolutely makes a perfect corporate retreat facility.
ISAAC'S Restaurant & Deli enlisted the lodging and food services for our General Managers' Retreat in January 2001. Our group consisted of 45 people which included spouses. The accommodations were extremely clean and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to add the personal touches throughout our stay to make ISAAC'S feel very welcome. The food was superior and the wait staff was attentive and excellent. They were happy to work with the different culinary requests of our group as well as serving snacks the evening before the retreat officially started.
Being in charge of organizing this weekend event, I found your management staff to be very obliging and detail-oriented. Your willingness to plan and schedule meals around our work sessions, and allowing us to rearrange the meeting and dining rooms to make it conducive to discussion groups, added to the effectiveness of our retreat weekend. Providing each guest with a welcome pack for "downtime" activities was extremely helpful for those who have never been to Cape May.
We have already received approval from our executive team to enlist the services of the Carroll Villa Hotel and Mad Batter Restaurant next year. It is without hesitation that I recommend your facility to any group planning a retreat. Without a doubt, you exceeded our expectations.

I’d like to take a moment to thank you and your staff for helping our team building session a success.
I chose to bring my team off-site for this two-day team building meeting so that we would be able to work without interruption. The Mad Batter & The Carroll Villa facilities proved to be ideal for this purpose. The Terrace Room provided plenty of space for the entire team to meet, and the use of the parlor and dining rooms allowed us to break out into smaller discussion groups whenever necessary. Having the restaurant, meeting rooms and accommodations in one building enabled us to utilize our time most effectively.
The food was delicious and all special diet needs were met without exception. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable.
Most importantly, the staff did a wonderful job. Your flexibility and willingness to work with us concerning meals, special diets, and room accommodations, to name just a few, clearly showed your commitment to make our visit a success.
I commend you and your entire staff and look forward to future stays, both business and pleasure, at the Mad Batter & The Carroll Villa.
Very truly yours,

On behalf of the American Dairy Association/Dairy Council Middle Atlantic, I want to thank you for contributing to the success of our recent staff retreat. As you know, our meeting in Cape May was one of the first steps in merging three organizations together into a cohesive group. Finding an environment where staff could relax and get to know one another was an important part of the process. The gracious atmosphere, including the delicious breakfasts, the sunny conference space and the overall service we received, helped us achieve our goal. Your staff is to be commended for their cheerful attitude and willingness to meet all of our needs.
In the future, please feel free to use our organization as a reference for any other groups considering The Mad Batter & Carroll Villa for their conference needs. We would be happy to share our positive experience with them.

What could the Cape May County Chapter of the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge and the Dennis Township Middle School Peer Leaders possibly have in common?
Well, for starters both active groups were honored at The Mad Batter in Cape May. This past December was the fourth time owner Mark Kulkowitz opened the doors of The Mad Batter on Jackson Street to honor the Dennis Township Peer Leaders for their community service.
The Peer Leaders were treated to a tour of the building, including the widow’s walk and the kitchen where they met the chef and placed their breakfast order. Pancakes with a side of bacon and home fries were the popular choice. Fresh squeezed orange juice washed it all down.
The Mad Batter started this tradition a few years back and our Peer Leaders look forward to the characteristic hospitality and personal service offered at the Mad Batter. So where do the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge come in?
Well, right after the Peer Leaders finished up their breakfast, the staff started preparing for the annual luncheon honoring these American heroes. Although World War II veteran numbers are declining each year, this group of Battle of the Bulge Veterans remains active in our county. Recognizing their sacrifice and patriotism, The Mad Batter hosts this luncheon as a way of saying thank you, and gives these soldiers a venue to meet with each other in a relaxed setting.
The Peer Leaders would like to extend their gratitude to the Mad Batter. Our annual visit to the restaurant is something we look forward to each year. Thank you for recognizing this hard working group of Dennis Township Middle School students.

Dear Mark, Pam & Kay-
Just wanted to thank you for setting up the Tomasello wine dinner Friday night. It was a great opportunity for the winery to show some of our wines and I think it went over well.
You have an excellent chef and the food and wine pairings were perfect. Love to do it again. Keep me in mind and wishing you all the best for a slam dunk season!
