Birders love the Mt. Vernon's location, far from crowds on the western end of Cape May, across from the ocean, and within walking distance to Cape May Point Lighthouse, the Nature Conservancy Bird Refuge, and the historic district. All rooms have queen-size beds, wall-to-wall carpeting, free wi-fi, and open onto sundecks. Efficiency units have kitchens. There are two pools, including a smaller, protected one for young children.
