The Sights of Summer

I’ve always loved this photo, as it represents everything that summer in Cape May feels like to me.  The beautiful sunny
mornings, with brilliant light shining brightly on The Queen Victoria, the flags hanging listlessly, brilliant green plants everywhere you look, these are all the things that make me smile thinking about summer.


We’ve obviously been taking lots of reservations for the summer months, but you may be surprised to discover that we still
have plenty of availability left, just waiting for you to make a reservation.


Wouldn’t you love to walk out the door in the morning and experience this bright, cheery scene?  The good news is that you
have it within your control.  Visit us online or give us a call, and make your summer reservation at The Queen Victoria.  Trust me, summer doesn’t get any better than this.


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

Room of The Month

Prince Alfred

Prince Alfred has always been one of my favorite rooms.  In the warmer months, when guests are likely to want to spend lots
of time outside, it is probably our most popular room.  The reason for that is the very large wrap around porch that is accessible through the “Pocket Window” pictured on the far wall (yes, it looks like a door, but it opens like a window).  As you can see,
Prince Alfred is elegantly decorated with classic wall coverings and beautiful, rich antique furniture.  The high ceiling and the bright ambiance give it a special cheerfulness.


Prince Alfred has a queen sized bed (the antique headboard, which is deceptive …  queen beds didn’t exist in the Victorian
era).  The bathroom is as elegant as the guest room, and features a large marble vanity, marble floors, a massive mirror and a step in shower.


I’m pretty sure you’ll love the Prince Alfred room.  If you want to give it a try, I suggest planning ahead.  It is a very
popular room.









Upcoming Events & Activities


Cape May Restaurant Week

June 3rd through June 10th

One of the reasons that Anna Marie and I  love June so much is the return of Restaurant Week.  One week each June restaurants
throughout Cape May put together a fabulous offering of 3-course dinners (appetizer, entree & dessert) for the fixed price of $35.  It is a great deal and it offers visitors and locals alike an opportunity to explore restaurants without a monetary consideration.


Here are the (Cape May) restaurants participating this year (in alphabetical order):


  • 410 Bank Street
  • A Ca Mia Ristorante
  • Aleathea’s

This is really quite a list, which includes most of the finest restaurants in Cape May.  It certainly includes many of our
favorites!  If you haven’t already booked your June visit to The Queen Victoria, I suggest you make plans to visit us during this tastiest of weeks in Cape May.
