Why Escape to Cape May?
Cape May is a jewel at the tip of southern New Jersey’s Cape May Peninsula. The Lenape Indians, who once inhabited the area currently known as New Jersey, are said to have “vacationed” on Cape May. They, too, appreciated the cool ocean breezes and abundance of seafood.
Part of the charm of Cape May comes from the multiple blocks of exquisite Victorian homes. Built in the 1870s after a fire destroyed 30 blocks of buildings, these homes are one of the largest concentrations of Victorian architecture in the United States. They are not only private residences, but also Bed and Breakfasts (like Carroll Villa), restaurants, and shops!
Let’s not forget that Cape May is a beach town, and there are miles of pristine beaches! Relax and walk along the beach, or visit our iconic lighthouse. There is so much to do! Visit some wineries, go for a dolphin or whale watching tour, enjoy a little fishing or birding, or even spend a little time on a foodie tour.
If all of that is just too overwhelming, how about sitting on a front porch and enjoying a warm sea breeze? Taking a walk to get saltwater taffy or an ice cream cone? Or how about a bike ride along our beachfront? We are summer personified!
Why Escape Mid-Week?
Doesn’t it just feel like a guilty pleasure to sleep in while the rest of the world is busy at work? Just like playing hooky! That makes a mid-week summer escape all the more enticing!
Weekends can be busy here, making a mid-week stay perfect for those looking for a slower, quieter pace. Do some leisurely shopping in our downtown eclectic shops. Take your time strolling past all of the Victorian homes and gardens or picnic on the beach. Do some wine tasting at Willow Creek Farm & Winery, the largest winery on Cape May Island.
You set the pace during your visit and experience as much or as little as you desire. Our elegant and spacious guest rooms will provide the perfect place to relax and unwind in your home away from home. And, as an added bonus, room rates are generally less expensive in the middle of the week. Isn’t that just the incentive you need?
