Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A true gem in Cape May's historic district, this opulent 1860s B&B sits on 1.5 acres of award-winning gardens. It offers total privacy and personalized service just a 5-minute walk from nearby beaches and shops.
  • The spectacular winding staircase leading to the ceremony lawn is a highlight, making for a dramatic entry and striking photo op. Exchange vows in front of the colorful façade of the Victorian mansion or beneath an ornate, antique iron gazebo.
  • Inside, the saturated color palette, tall gilded mirrors, and burnished wood evoke a different era, as do the decorated Christmas trees if you're planning a winter wedding. In any season, their charming accommodations will entice you to stay over.
