Getting Around Cape May

We have bikes available for you to use during your stay. They are located in the back, on the right side of the home. You may use any bike in the bike rack or in the garage. If you are riding downtown or anywhere that you will be leaving the bike, please be sure to grab a bike lock to take with you. All of the locks have the same four-digit combination – 1117. When you return, please leave the bikes in the driveway so that we know which ones need to be sanitized at the end of the day. Do not put them in the bike rack or the garage. 

If you prefer to walk, we are located just a block and a half from the beginning of the promenade. Simply go out the front door and down the steps, then head right on New Jersey Ave. Take the first left onto Philadelphia Ave, walk a few hundred yards to the end and turn right onto Beach Ave. Walk a few hundred yards further on Beach Ave, and you will see the entrance to the promenade on the left. If you walk the entire length, it is about 1.5 miles. 

If you need a lift during your stay, give our friends at Cape May Free Ride a call – 609-435-2680. They typically run on weekends from 4 pm to 10 pm and can take you anywhere in Cape May. The driver’s just work for tips so please be generous! 

Safety Precautions

For all of our guests, your health and safety has been, and will continue to be, our top priority! In addition to our normal detailed cleaning practices that our guests have come to expect, we have also implemented new enhanced procedures to help ensure your well-being and peace-of-mind during your next visit. These have been developed based on insight and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Jersey and Cape May County Health Departments. In addition, information from national and regional lodging and hospitality organizations were consulted. These included the Association of Lodging Professionals, the American Hotels & Lodging Association, and the NJ Restaurant & Hospitality Association.
