Queen Victoria Monthly Highlights
Every month, we pick a room, restaurant, and gift shop item to highlight. Here are May’s picks.
Room of the Month: Chelsea
The Room of the Month is Chelsea. Chelsea is a bright and charming room on the third floor of Prince Albert Hall. It has an original widow’s walk porch – the perfect spot from where to view the ocean or watch the sun come up. Chelsea’s large bathroom features a step-in shower, wonderful quartz vanity with plenty of set-down space, and two windows that stream in the morning sun. A lovely room for a stay in the summer months! Book Chelsea Now!
Restaurant of the Month: Iccara
Located in the heart of Cape May, Iccara Italian Bistro & Seafood brings you the fresh, unique flavors of Italy in a charming, welcoming atmosphere. Menu items are inspired by the small coastal Italian town of Iccara, hometown of proprietor and local restauranteur of 30+ years, Vincenzo Sanzone. Years after Vincenzo moved to Cape May, the name of his childhood town changed to Carini, but Iccara still lives in Vincenzo’s heart. After dining at Iccarra, we think it will live in yours, too.
Gift Shop Item of the Month: The Queen Victoria Granola
The Queen Victoria Granola is perhaps our most scrumptious giftshop item. Enjoy our exclusive recipe that is perfectly nutty and perfectly sweet. Ideal for breakfast and as a snack, The Queen Victoria granola also makes an excellent gift for dog sitters, house sitters, babysitters – any and all who helped make your stay with us possible!
