Once you have stayed at The Queen Victoria Bed & Breakfast in Cape May you will want to return again and again. The Queen Victoria offers an enchanting stay. No matter the season, if you are heading for Cape May, New Jersey, The Queen Victoria is a must bed and breakfast to consider for lodging. With four restored Victorian buildings that house 32 guest rooms, the ambience of the Victorian era permeates every lovely and detailed room. Walking along the sidewalk, you can almost picture yourself in elegant Victorian England. Located only one block from the Atlantic and two blocks from a shopping district this is a prime-lodging site for warm weather visitors. During the winter, the pace is slower and The Queen Victoria Bed & Breakfast offers a delightfully relaxed and quiet stay.

Innkeepers, Doug and Anna Maria McCain are gracious. The staff is friendly and efficient. No detail is left undone. Even though our visit was at the end of January, every building had a lovely vase filled with fresh flowers. Despite our best intentions of visiting Cape May during nice weather, we were greeted with snow and rain our first two days. It last snowed in Cape May three years ago. Doug assured us that the snow would be gone the next day. The weather did not hamper our enjoyment of the bed and breakfast. Every room was warm and cozy. Antiques from the Victorian age are displayed throughout the buildings. Carpeting is thick and fits the Victorian style.

Doug and Anna Marie purchased The Queen Victoria in 2004 to fulfill their dreams of owning a bed and breakfast. Dane and Joan Wells started The Queen Victoria Bed & Breakfast in 1980.

Qeen Victoria Inn Bed and BreakfastCheck in and afternoon tea is in the picturesque Queen Victoria building. After checking in and going to our room in the House of Royals building, we returned to the room where tea is served daily in the late afternoon. Two different teas, homemade treats and a ham spread were available. This is a lovely time to meet others who choose to stay at The Queen Victoria. On our first day we met a couple from New York and after tea, we retrieved our Natali Vineyards wine while our new friends provided cheese and crackers. We retreated to a parlor area in the House of Royals where we enjoyed the wine, food and conversation.

Our room, the Prince Alfred was cozy. Amenities included a large shower, refrigerator, television and desk. This bed and breakfast concentrates on the details whether it is the wallpaper or bathroom amenities including bayberry soap. One is certain to appreciate the pampering. This was the first lodging facility that we have stayed to provide lip balm with the soap, shampoo and lotion. The bed was comfortable and evening turn down service is available. A short distance away a small room offers complimentary soda, water, tea, coffee and juice.

Fresh fruit, cereal, milk and juice were on another sidebar. The third sidebar had assorted baked items. Guests sit at a long table. Doug or Anna Maria help usher the breakfast conversations and are extremely attentive never allowing your tea or coffee cup to go empty.

Qeen Victoria Inn Bed and BreakfastAfter breakfast Doug gave us a tour of the four buildings. We can see why people are return visitors. Each room is lovely and warrants a night’s stay. On our tour with Doug, he showed us a small nook that had four small chairs and table adjacent to the parlor in the House of Royals. Pointing to the new wallpaper, he talked about how they were able to match the wallpaper with the wallpaper in the parlor. The wallpaper company was able to match the colors and wallpaper from twenty years ago. The elegant wallpaper is handmade. Though costly, the result is lovely. The wallpaper in all of the rooms help to set the senses for relaxation.

Porches adorn the Victorian buildings and guests can spend the evening watching the world walk past or join them if they wish. Our room, Prince Alfred in the House of Royals, had a balcony with chairs. At Prince Albert Hall, there is a roof top deck for guests to enjoy. It offered views of the tree lined streets and during the winter, one can see the ocean. If you have extra energy, complimentary bikes are available for guests.
