  • Beautiful, Wonderful and cozy. just a hidden gem of Cape May. The people who work here are exceptional.
  • Nice pleasant little nature center. It's free and good for some quick and educational activities for your kids when you need a break from the main beach. They have a nice lookout post that allows you to see the whole conservatory. They even provide binoculars.

Where to stay in Cape May

Choosing where to stay on Cape May remains simple because most accommodations lie steps from Beach Avenue (which, as its name suggests, runs along the cape's stretch of sand). Even choosing your style of accommodation is uncomplicated--inns and bed and breakfasts situated inside Victorian houses encompass nearly the entire range of choices. You can opt for a cottage if you prefer self-service. Budget-wise you'll find the most options in the mid-range and higher end, but a few value-driven choices exist too. Book early if you plan to visit in summer.
