Valentines Day is always a wonderful excuse to celebrate your special loving relationship with your loved one. Since Anna
Marie and I got engaged on our 2nd Valentines Day together, it has always been very special. It has also made it a little stressful for me to find a suitable gift to celebrate such an important occasion. Even if you don’t have the added dimension of an engagement,
I’m guessing that you sometimes struggle to come up with a gift to celebrate the love of your life. If so, please allow me to make a suggestion.
Make a Valentines reservation to spend a night or two at The Queen Victoria.
What could possibly be more romantic than an excursion to your favorite, romantic bed and breakfast, located in the most
romantic seaside village in the country (maybe the world). Imagine spending an afternoon enjoying a winery, maybe doing some antiquing, and then savoring a wonderful dinner at one of Cape May’s magnificent restaurants.
The fact that Valentines falls mid-week this year gives you 3 opportunities to make this work, depending on your schedule
and flexibility. You could celebrate on Wednesday the 14th itself, or you can make a reservation for either the weekend before or after Valentines. If you choose the weekend prior, you can also participate in our Wine Blending party (maybe not so romantic,
but LOADS of fun). You have so many options! No matter which path you choose, you’re sure to have the perfect Romantic getaway with that person that is most special to you.
If you can’t actually get away to celebrate in real-time, there is always the option of purchasing a gift certificate for
your lover, which is sure to be a big hit.
We’re always happy to assist you
find the best possible room for the dates you want to visit, or the best dates for the room you want to stay in. Call us at (609) 884-8702 to get started.

Room of The Month
Many of our returning guests have chosen the Prince Leopold room as their favorite, and for good reason.
Prince Leopold is a wonderful premium room located on the 3rd floor of the House of Royals building. This quiet & very private
room is one of our largest. It features a king sized bed, a pull-out sofa (which provides an opportunity
for additional guests), 2 seating areas, a luxurious bathroom featuring a 2 head/2 person step in shower with an elegant marble
bench seat, and a 2-zone heating/cooling system.
You might notice from this photo that the left wall appears sloped, giving the window well lots of character (all 3 of them).
This is due to the “Mansard Roof”, in which the room resides, a feature that was very popular in the Victorian era. Far from feeling like an attic room, the ceiling in Prince Leopold is 9 feet high, giving it a very spacious feeling.
If you haven’t tried the Prince Leopold room yet, I highly recommend it. Who knows, it might become your favorite too.

Upcoming Events & Activities
2018 Channeling Weekends
February 3rd, 2018 (only 4 seats left)
November 17, 2018 (only 2 seats left)
Join Debbie Wojciechowski, our medium “extraordinaire”, and experience her incredible ability to connect people with their
departed loved ones. Her talent is truly amazing. I have no idea how she does it, but you will be astounded at the level of detail and specificity of information she provides. If you yearn to connect with and hear from a departed loved one then you’ll want
to experience one of these events for yourself.
A few years ago we decided to throw a celebration weekend for one of Anna Marie’s significant birthdays. When it morphed into
a birthday celebration for all of our guests with birthdays in the month of March (yes, Anna Marie is a Pisces), we knew we had come up with a fun way to enliven a few weekends during our
cooler season. One weekend each month through April we turn afternoon tea into a birthday celebration with balloons, cake,
party favors for everyone, and of course we sing “Happy Birthday”. We don’t discriminate against those not celebrating a birthday, but we do try to make all of our birthday celebrants for that month feel special.
We just celebrated our January birthdays this past weekend, and everyone had a great time. If you or the one you love has
a birthday coming up in the next few months, and you just can’t figure out what the perfect gift is (besides a gift certificate to The Queen Victoria, of course), you might just consider booking a reservation for the appropriate month and celebrate in style
at The Queen Victoria.
Wine Lover’s Weekend
February 10, 2018
Are you searching for a fun weekend getaway this winter, perhaps to celebrate Valentines Day? If so, your search is probably
Personally, I can’t imagine a better way to spend a weekend than a couple of days in Cape May’s finest bed and breakfast,
and an afternoon of wine blending in the charming Cape May Winery.
Every year we host this fun-filled event in Cape May Winery’s barrel room pictured here. In 2018, 30 of our guests will gather
for an afternoon of wine tasting, education, blending and great fun on Saturday, February 10. This really is one of the most enjoyable wine related events I can imagine.
Make you plans soon … remaining seats are limited!
Big Cheese Weekend
March 10, 2018
Yes, it’s back! Every March Anna Marie and I search for fun and different (but not too exotic) cheeses from around the world
to share with our guests. We usually feature around 15 or 16 different cheeses, spread out upon our dining room table as shown in this photo. This is a fun and FREE event that we invite all our registered guests to enjoy.
I know that when I hear the word cheese, I almost immediately associate it with another favorite consumable … wine. Though
we aren’t allowed to serve any wine at The Queen Victoria,
we encourage our guests to bring a bottle to this BYOB event, and make the most of the occasion. We set all the wines down
on the side buffet, and they become quite communal, so bring something nice to enjoy that you are willing to share with others.
One of the most popular small scale events held in Cape May every year are the “Sherlock Holmes Mystery Weekends”, held in
March, October & November. This wonderful event provides a full weekend of fun activities, without completely filling every moment of your weekend.
Your weekend will get started with an evening reception on Friday night, where you’re
introduced to Sherlock, Watson, and the rest of the characters with a stage performance introducing you to the mystery. On
Saturday you’ll make your way through several B&B’s on a self guided tour searching for clues to solve the mystery, along with the cast (in character), whom you’ll be able to consult with in your quest. Following the tour you’ll enjoy the 2nd act of the stage
presentation, where you’ll be able to see if you are on track to solve the mystery. Finally, on Sunday you’ll enjoy lunch with Holmes and the rest of the crew, where the solution to the mystery will be revealed. Prizes are awarded for the best solution, best
costume (some folks do dress in “Holmes” attire for the event), and there is even a “Clueless Wonder” prize for the worst solution.
It is all a lot of fun for everyone involved. This is an absolute must for the Holmes aficionado in your life. Don’t wait too
long to book this, as this event sells out quickly every time.
Booking Tip: Reserve your room at The Queen Victoria directly with us, as our direct rates are better than the package that MAC offers.
