The Sights of Summer

With Summer well under way now in Cape May,  it is tempting to elaborate on just how wonderful it is.  As much fun as it would be to share with you how perfect the weather has been and how much fun everyone is having right now at The Queen Victoria, I'm shifting my focus forward a bit into our Fall season, which will be here before you know it.


When Summer takes its leave of us, it does not signal the end of the "season" in Cape May.  Many of you are already well aware that the months between September and December are some of the very best times to visit Cape May, each for their own reasons.


I'll be sharing information about quite a few activities and events that await us in the magical fall and early winter seasons.  I'm guessing that something will catch your attention!


We're always happy to assist you

Room of The Month


Buckingham is a wonderful large standard room on the 3rd floor of the Queen Victoria building.  Buckingham is one of those rooms that guests often choose as their favorite after staying in several other rooms.  It has a queen sized  bed mounted to an antique brass headboard, a bright, spacious bathroom with a 2-person/2-head step in shower, and lots of windows, offering the opportunity to enjoy our wonderful ocean breezes.  It even has a "glimpse" of the beach from the window shown on the right in this photo!


One of the things that I love about Buckingham is the character that the sloping Mansard roof imbues it with.  The depth of the windows definitely lends the room an interesting feeling.


I've always thought that Buckingham was a great choice for just about any occasion.  If you're looking for a new room to call your favorite, Buckingham may just be the room for you.
