Here in Cape May, NJ the summer is full of sun-seeking travelers, boats, and beaches. What many don’t know is that our beautiful resort town is the perfect escape destination during the winter months too! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we do still have a few rooms open.

But, if you have just been feeling the desire to relax in a romantic, peaceful setting, we encourage you to consider a midweek stay at our seaside resort hotel.
During the winter season, the town of Cape May is quiet and peaceful – it’s almost as if you have the area all to yourself! Staying at a resort hotel such as the Carroll Villa is a great decision, since we offer the ultimate in elegant accommodations and amenities to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Even though many tourist attractions close for the winter, don’t let that deter you! There are still plenty of sights to see and places to enjoy.
What can you do in the off season in Cape May?
Our hotel is located just minutes from the beach and there are still shells and whelks and other treasures to be found! For a delicious bite to eat we would steer you to our very own Mad Batter Restaurant. It is a cozy breakfast-to-dinner bistro with award-winning food and a fun, casual atmosphere. If you are up for some shopping, Cape May is home to the Washington Street Mall, an outdoor walking mall spanning three blocks. All of the shops in Cape May are independently owned and operated, so they do open and close at their discretion. Some are seasonal but many stay open during the off season. If you are fond of sweets, one shop we are glad stays open is the Original Fudge Kitchen! So many choices of fudge, candy, chocolates and salt water taffy – a great souvenir to bring home (if it makes it that far!)
Wrap up a relaxing day in style at the sophisticated Brown Room at Congress Hall. This prohibition-era cocktail lounge offers guests comfortable leather chairs, crackling fireplace, and a cozy atmosphere to relax and connect with your companions.
There is no shortage of fun activities to enjoy, even in the off-season. If you’re looking for somewhere relaxing and serene to visit this winter, Cape May is just the place. Contact us anytime if we can assist in planning your next memorable and romantic getaway.
