We arrived too late to enjoy the afternoon tea, but were shown by the owner, Patti, how to use the snack bar area off the kitchen anytime. We loved our romantic Victorian room on the second floor, the Madison, and had a peaceful rest. It's a short 3 blocks walk to the shopping area and even shorter to see the ocean beachfront! Patti's morning breakfast of French toast was "out of this world" as the other couple staying conversed with us. Our peaks into other rooms not occupied was encouraged by the owner so we may choose another when we return. We wished we had more time to enjoy the ambience here, but easily found the ferry for crossing the Delaware Bay. This time of year it's easy to get around in the shops and find parking. Oh, and enjoy the chocolate she offers in the sitting room. We loved the malted milk balls...
