I give our stay at the Gingerbread house nothing short of a perfect Review. First I would like to say that they had an early check in policy which was 12:00 Noon which allowed My wife an I to enjoy some valuable beach time. We were greeted by a very loyal employee who spoke very Kindly of the Gingerbread house and Fred and Joan. It is always great to hear what employees have to say about there employers. It speaks volumes to me about the Owners.
Our room was Decorated in a Beautiful Victorian Style, and was immaculately kept throughout our stay. On our way to our Room we noticed that most of the doors to the rooms were open because the new guest had not yet arrived. These rooms were also beautiful, decorated with Victorian antiques with their own distinct charm, and once again extremely well kept and clean.
The front porch ,dining room, living room, were beautiful as well. These rooms were also decorated with furniture from the period this house was built( 1869 stated on the sign on this Historic Home).
In the Morning we woke up to the smell of Fresh food and Coffee which permeated throughout the house. Then we met Joan the owner who cooked the food, greeted us, served us, and had nice conversation with us. She made us feel like we were somewhere between family and royalty with the food quality, taste, and her attentiveness.
Joan was not only concerned about our stay in the B&B. She also was very concerned that we had a good time in town, offering very good advice on local attractions, and places to eat.
To end our trip we were told we could use the facilities and towels in a very nice outdoor shower 4 hours after we checked out and were treated to another wonderful breakfast. Beyond this she kept coffees, teas, and light snacks available in the living and dining ares throughout the day.
My wife and I have stayed at about 4 Bed and Breakfast since we have been going to Cape May. I consider this our Best experience and the standard for others to achieve.
PS Did I mention we were a half block from the Beach!!!! Loved It!! Thank you, Mickey
