When I think of Bed and Breakfasts in New Jersey, I instantly think of Cape May. Nestled between the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Cape May is New Jersey’s “queen of seaside resorts” and is renowned for it’s many charming Bed and Breakfast Inns.
Built in 1860, The Southern Mansion is the largest, premier luxury Cape May B&B. The Southern Mansion has it all… rich in history, architecture and with award-winning gardens, it provides the ideal backdrop for a romantic weekend getaway.
The Southern Mansion is also perfectly situated with only a 5-minute walk to the best beaches, shops and restaurants in Cape May’s historic district. I was instantly captivated by the grandiose suites. The King Premier Suite is 700 square feet with 15′ high ceilings. This bi-level suite boasts an artfully decorated downstairs living room, large private bathroom and a large soaking tub – always a crowd pleaser. If antiques are your passion, you will love this B&B…each room is accented with old armoires, classic paintings and has an unmistakable Victorian vibe.
And of course a Bed & Breakfast pre-req… a full gourmet breakfast and afternoon tea (hm, crumpets?). Rates for this beach-side beauty are of course higher in the summer and availability is slim, but if you are looking for gourmet food, luxurious amenities and the utmost privacy, The Southern Mansion is sure to suit your needs (& wants) quite well.
