Cape May Bed & Breakfast
Award-Winning Cape May, NJ B&B
Sherlock Holmes Mystery Weekend(s)
They say the wedding day is all about the bride, but when John Watson attends the wedding of an old army compatriot, it quickly becomes all about the body in the garden.
Every Fall Watson, Sherlock and their gang revisit Cape May to solve another of the seemingly endless stream of interesting mysteries that seem to befall our fair city. Last year Cape May MAC, the hosts of said Sherlock & Watson, decided to invite them twice, and they’re doing so again.
If you love a fun weekend-long event, with just enough participation to keep it fun, but not take up your whole day, then I’m guessing you’ll love the Sherlock Holmes Mystery Weekend. In fact, the fun starts Friday night and wraps up with a Sunday afternoon luncheon, where Holmes reveals the solution of the mystery.
It is definitely time to start planning for your visit to The Queen Victoria to enjoy the upcoming 2019 Sherlock Holmes Mystery Weekends, as tickets are limited and usually sell out.

Chocolate Lover’s Weekend
If you’re looking for an excuse to escape from your normal life for a weekend, what could possibly be better than a weekend in Cape May and an afternoon of chocolate indulgence at The Queen Victoria? Our Chocolate Lover’s Weekend is the perfect way to spend a couple of days with your favorite person in the world, enjoying Cape May and getting your fill of an amazing buffet of all things chocolate. We’ll be filling our dining room table with a vast variety of chocolate baked goods from our own kitchen, plates filled with exotic specialty chocolates, and fun dipping treats (fruits, cheeses, etc) for you to smother with one or more of our specialty chocolates that you’ll find bubbling away in six different crocks.
It is an amazing afternoon that you’ll remember for years to come.

Wine Lover’s Weekend
- 2-3 hour Saturday Afternoon “Wine Blending Challenge”
- 2 bottles of custom labeled wine, with your name on it
Package price is $60/person in addition to the cost of your room
We are partnering with Cape May Winery to create a special event/package for true wine lovers. On February 8, 2020, The Queen Victoria® is hosting it annual “Wine Blending Challenge”. On Saturday afternoon, our participating guests will join us at Cape May Winery to craft the perfect blend of red wine. We’ll break up into teams of 4-6 people at a table laden with bottles of the various red wines right out of the barrel. Each team will craft & document different blends, ranking them among themselves. Once each team has selected its “finest blend”, we’ll all break for a tour of the winery while the winemaker creates the blends we’ve chosen. Following the tour, we head back to the blending room and do a “blind” tasting of the chosen blend of each team. We’ll all vote on the best blend, which will then be bottled for us with a special “Queen Victoria Cellars” label. Each participant will get a bottle of the final blend (2 per couple), the labels of which will be customized with your names and the blending details.
Cheese trays will be provided for snacking during the event, but we recommend you enjoy lunch somewhere prior to the event. Cape May Winery serves a tapas menu, so consider arriving early enough to enjoy a light lunch on site!
This exclusive event is only open to guests of our bed and breakfast and will only occur once this year. Anna Marie and I LOVE this event. I know you will too.

Big Cheese Weekend
Complimentary cheese tasting party for all registered guests!
March 7, 2020
Anna Marie and I will be filling The Queen Victoria® dining room table with a wide assortment of cheeses from all over the world. There will be about 16 cheeses for us to taste and each one will be labeled with its country origin, how it is made and any other fun tidbits of information we know. We’ll also have breads from one of our local bakeries along with an assortment of specialty olive oils and other tasty goodies.
We’re holding this event at our 4:00 Saturday afternoon Tea Time. Now I know that for some people it is impossible to eat cheese without having a glass of wine in your hand, so we’re welcoming everyone to bring their own wine and make an afternoon of it. The wine tends to become communal, so bring something you feel comfortable sharing.
The really good news is that this is a free event for all of our guests that weekend.
Winter Birthday Celebrations
It was such a great time, in fact, that we’ve decided to repeat and expand the event. In 2019 we’ll be throwing a birthday party every month, January through April, to celebrate the birthdays of any of our guests born in those months. If you’re going to be celebrating a birthday in winter/early spring 2019 and you’re looking for a fun way to do it, I suggest a trip to The Queen Victoria.
Here are the dates of our 2020 Birthday Parties:
January 4, 2020
February 1, 2020
March 14, 2020
April 25, 2020
