Fodor's Expert Review Captain Mey's Inn
202 Ocean St., Cape May, New Jersey, 08204, USA
Vintage corsets and hoop skirts hang on a hat rack in the dining room of this Victorian B&B, a great conversation starter for the T-shirts and shorts crowd. The 1890 Colonial Revival house, named for the Dutch discoverer of Cape May, draws you, book and iced tea in hand, to the veranda to sit a spell. Half canopies and dominant, print wallpapers add to the period aesthetic. Walk to the beach (two blocks) from here, or the Washington Mall (half a block).
