Cape May, New Jersey: Inn at the Park; hotel review

exterior of Inn at the Park in Cape May, New Jersey

Inn at the Park  1002 Washington St., (609) 884-8406.  6 rooms.  Some fireplaces.  Breakfast; afternoon wine & appetizers. 

This small Victorian B&B abuts Madison Avenue Park (with a pond, barbecue facilities, and 14 tennis courts), is just a few doors down from the Emlen Physick Estate, and is a pleasant 4-block walk from the downtown mall.  It is a homey kind of place, where you can sit on the front porch with a cup of coffee and chat with other guests.  Claims to fame include owner Jay’s breakfast estrata and the fact that author Azar Nafisi finished writing Reading Lolita in Tehran on the front porch.  It can get warm here, so the choice of using either AC or a ceiling fan is nice, and when the weather cools some rooms have fireplaces.  A sit-down breakfast takes place in the formal dining room, where guests mingle and indulge in owner-chef Jay’s delicious offerings.

Co-owner Mary Ann takes pride in displaying her grandmother’s wedding picture over the fireplace and in using her antique English china for the breakfast settings.
