The couple really knows their Victoriana. Elan is curator at the Physick House (site worth seeing). The interior of the B&B reflects it. And also shows a sense of humor. So much to notice. We've stayed in different rooms. Each room has a name that indicates a theme which is then carried out within the room. Very cleverly done. (I learned some lines from Robert Burns in one. In a different room I was able to identify Rasputin.) Our rooms and beds have been comfortable and when air conditioning is needed, it works very well. Sleep is never a problem.
The cooking, by Elan the master of the house, is excellent including breakfast. Freshly cooked muffins...super. It's quite easy to overeat the treats that are prepared for tea. The mistress of the house makes sure that everything runs smoothly...and it does. Location, location, location few B&B are closer to the beach. Unobstructed views to the ocean. A short walk to Washington Street Mall and the beautiful streets of Historic Cape May.
Both of the couple are charming, can talk on a very large variety of topics, and like to laugh a lot. It's contagious. We look forward to returning next year.
