  • This historic gem is the most photographed home in Cape May. Built in 1869 by a wealthy Pennsylvania coal baron, John McCreary, its architecture is a mix of Victorian elegance meeting Gothic Revival. Architect Stephen Button designed this beautiful Gothic villa to feature a 60' tower. He also designed her with stenciled and ruby glass arched windows. This home features 4 large public rooms, 9 bedrooms and 9 1/2 baths (mixture of double beds, queen, king and single beds), all richly decorated with antiques, chandeliers, mahogany trim, beautiful wallpaper and Persian rugs. Shaded verandas and porches offer relaxing spaces for reading, watching the horse-drawn carriages go by or enjoying the summer breezes. Our location in the heart of Cape May's historic district puts you within walking distance of great shopping, restaurants, art galleries and, of course, our wonderful beaches and cool Atlantic Ocean. There is on-site parking for 10 cars and a large side yard for bbqs, games, and family gatherings and more. A large modern kitchen renovated in 2012 features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry and new flooring. A separate galley kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and custom cabinetry. All bathrooms have undergone renovation as well. Rates range from $4800-$12500 weekly; the nightly rate ranges from $1200-1500.
