Cape May Accommodations
Cape May, the Summer City by the Sea, is an architectural wonder, from Colonial cozy to Edwardian luxury to the modern-day conveniences at the classic beachfront motel. Most accommodations are within walking distance of the beach, easy access to the Washington Street Mall, and provide a variety of amenities suited to make your stay here a perfect in every way.
Take a step back in time without losing any time. When you stay at a B&B, you enjoy the luxury of being surrounded by period antiques in the Victorian or Edwardian style and the hospitality and camaraderie of breakfast and, in many cases, tea, often served in the British style. Happily, you need not sacrifice the amenities of the modern age just because you’ve taken a short holiday from it.
If you like being surrounded by period furniture in the setting of an historical house, but also like the independence of eating breakfast at your leisure and the luxury of a longer stay, the Guest House, Suite or Apartment is the perfect option.
If you want an historical setting with the modern amenities of a large hotel, Cape May has a number of accommodations to choose from. Take advantage of concierge services, enjoy sitting on the porches, many of them wraparound, taking in the sights, or where there is a bar available, what better venue for sipping cocktails in a relaxed milieu.
Steps away from the beach, clean, modern conveniences, and a lobby which is manned with a friendly, helpful staff ready to assist and to answer all your questions makes Cape May’s hotel/motel option an easy choice. As a bonus, many of the hotels have a pool with an ocean view. Ahhh, luxury at its finest.
Have a big family? Want a longer stay? Like the cozy feel of home? The vacation house rental is ideal for reunions, weddings and family gatherings. With all the amenities of home, and plenty of room to spread out, this is the next best thing to owning a home on the Island.
If you like “roughing it” or just living the simple life, Cape May has a number campground facilities to choose from just before you get into town. You can make your adventure as rustic as you like or take advantage of the many full service amenities the hosting campground has to offer, including swimming pools, recreation rooms, fishing, cable and wireless internet amid the seclusion of campground life.
Why leave your pet at home? A family vacation need not be without the most important member of the family. Be it a guest house or hotel, Cape May has a nice selection of Pet Friendly places to stay. Mind the rules though, almost all Pet Friendly Accommodations take dogs, some take cats and dogs. Many have restrictions regarding the weight of the dog and the number of pets which can be accommodated.
Because many of Cape May’s accommodations are historic not only in structure, but are decorated with antiques and period furnishings, parents might want to check our list of kid-friendly accommodation sites just to avoid the pratfalls of “Victorian clutter.”
