Poor Richards is our favorite place to stay in Cape May. We have had to stay at other places when Harriet was all booked. They didn't even compare. The Inn is decorated in Harriets own colliage art which is absolutley incredible..each room has it's own character and charm. Harriet makes you feel like you have known her for years from the first time you meet her. We have recommended this Inn to all our friends. Just a block from the beach and two blocks from all the restaurants and town...once you park your car, you can leave it for the week and just relax. Our last stay began the evening after a hurricane went through the area. While the rest of the town was boarded up...we contacted Harriet and of course she said "come on down!" If you are going to Cape May...there is only place that I would stay...great job to Harriet, Melana and the whole staff.
- 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
