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...

The Jersey shore is a special place for anyone who grew up in NJ and Cape May is our most favorite spot on the Jersey shore. For the past ten years we've been staying at The Windward House at 24 Jackson Street. We love the location--one block to the beach, one block to Washington Street Mall and close to our... More

I almost hate to write this review because I don't want to have to complete with more people when reserving a room at the Windward House. I love everything about the area and staying here. The rooms are all unique and beautifully decorated. The location is perfect. You never have to get into your car. Everything you need, to include... More

We have been going to Cape May for the last 25 years. We have tried so many B&B's in the past, but once we stayed at the Windward House, it is the only place we will stay and have been doing so for the last 20 years. Sandy and Owen are warm and friendly and excellent hosts. They will go... More

My boyfriend and I have frequented many of the CM Beds and Breakfasts but none were as disappointing at the Windward House. The inn was stuffy, breakfast ok but nothing great. The worst was the afternoons---3 cookies and water was it. We were amazed that a B&B wouldn't even serve ice tea or lemonade at the least. We actually had... More

My wife and I love the quaint atmosphere that the Windward House has to offer. Its location is great ,located on one of the most romantic streets in Cape May. If you sit on the front porch on any given night, the sights and sounds bring you back to a bygone era. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very clean, the... More

Windward House has been the August vacation destination for my family, all or part, for over 30 years. My daughter and her roommate sampled other Cape May B&Bs while going to school in the late 70s, but fell in love with Windward House. She's vacationed there every year since then. The rest of the family soon followed. There are usually... More

My whole family had a wonderful week (again!) at the Windward House in August. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the extra porches are terrific, and we love to hang out on the front porch and chat with Sandy & Owen. We can always find something we like for breakfast (usually too much!) and the beach chairs, tags and towels... More

We have enjoyed Cape May for 20 + years and the Windward House is a huge part of our enjoyment, the rooms are comfy and always clean, the breakfast meals are good. We see several of our new found friends there each year and spend hours on the large wrap around porch talking. The Windward is located within walking distance... More
