This was our first visit to the Gingerbread House, and hopefully, it won't be our last. The rooms are impeccably clean and charming and the breakfasts were delicious! We ended up staying in the front deluxe room with the huge balcony on our last night, and it was a delight! The Gingerbread House is on a quiet street that is a couple of blocks away from the town center (but still very close) and literally a block from the beach. They provide guests with beach chairs and beach towels, and although we didn't use them, bicycles were available also. Joan and Fred were friendly and helpful, as well as McKinley who helped us check in--all had great eating recommendations as well. The house has stunningly beautiful decor without being stuffy or museum-like. It made a great home base for our exploration of Cape May!
