My wife and I stayed at the Windward house for the first time. It was my first B&B. The room we picked was large, clean, private bathroom w/ claw foot tub. We had a great view of Jackson street with a large deck we shared with another room. People in town say the Windward house is haunted. Although we didn't... More

You could not ask for a better location than the Windward House, nor a better hostess than Sandy .Their winnning combination just enhances the enjoyment and unique treasure that is Cape May. We have been staying there for years (decades) and the thought has never crossed our minds to stay anywhere else. A long time visitor or a first timer... More

We stayed at this gorgeous B&B.first time. I mouth dropped seeing the beautifully decorated entrance way, parlor and mini-parlor! It was like stepping back into the late 1890's. The furnishings looked like was borrowed from a museum! The little fine touches like a plume, old straw hats, piano books (& piano), the lamps, stained glass windows, the gorgeous setting for...

Cape May is filled with Bed and Breakfast houses. We ended up at the Windward House. The location was great, but the decor was a bit creepy. Benefits: Nice roof deck to watch the sunsets and tasty breakfast in the morning. Negatives: Mannequins everywhere. Also, the parking is about a 15-20 minute walk away. No assistance with baggage up all... More

The Windward House was built in 1905. Beautiful home with victorian charm. My husband, daughter and I stayed in the Wicker Room. Charming room up on the third floor. Not a good location for older people to get to. Very steep and narrow stairway. The connecting room had a day bed. The bathroom was next to that. I would rate... More

Windward house in Jackson St., Cape May is really comfortable and in the center of all the action around Cape May. If you love beautiful old style furniture, this is the house to stay at. The bed in our room was so comfortable and we had good sleep due to the quietness and bed quality. We had a different cooked... More

My brother's fiancée was looking for a relaxing getaway for her bachelorette party and that's what we got at the windward house. You couldn't beat the location- just a few minutes walking from the beach and promenade! The wicker room was cozy & plenty big for the 3 of us. The 3rd floor balcony has ocean views. Breakfast was good... More

Been going there for the past 20 years! Absolutely love it! Sandy and the crew feel like an extended family. The house and rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is delicious. 100% can't miss great time. Can't wait to go back!

We spent last weekend at this glorious Victorian Inn. We were part of a family reunion that we periodically have in Cape May. We wouldn't dream of going any place but the Windward House. It's such a comfortable Inn - full of fabulous Victorian furnishings in every nook and cranny. The Innkeeper, Sandy Miller, is as sweet as the delicacies... More

What a beautiful inn! I have been vacationing in Cape May for over 60 years and The Windward House is my favorite place to stay. It is conveniently located one block from the beach and one block from shopping on Washington St. This 1905 Victorian inn welcomes you with it's beautiful front porch where you can relax in cushioned chairs...
