Well, me and my wife have been staying here for years. I think I've been in each room, which are charming, clean and super comfortable. This 3 story B and B built in 1872 is very affordable, located in the perfect spot and has a beautiful 2nd story porch with views of historic JACKSON ST. and Beach. Speaking of the beach, Jackson St, is the most gorgeous location. Get ready to take scenic pics from the Jetty on the beach directly down the Street from Poor Richards. Washington St. is a stone's throw from our home away from home and features great shopping, eating and strolling opportunities. Harriet is an absolutely wonderful host. Heck we got engaged on the beach at Jackson Street. Why not its got romance written all over it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At Poor Richard's we try to strike a balance between today's informality and yesterday's charm, without being pretentious or overbearing. We're friendly and helpful, but respect your privacy; and while the rooms are furnished with period pieces, our primary goal is to have guests feel comfortable and "at home" — we're not aiming at strict Victorian authenticity...and our prices aren't too outrageous. We are located less than a minute's walk to Cape May's main beach. ... more less
