This was our third visit to Windward House in Cape May, and it was (as before) absolutely fantastic. The location is absolutely ideal in Cape May: on Jackson Street, half a block from the beach, a block from Washington Square. Trust me when I tell you that this really matters - you don't realize how much unless you've spent a... More

The front porch is shady and wide with lovely wicker seating. The interior is furnished with gorgeous old period pieces. I loved the "naked lady" gallery on the second floor hallway. Our room was very spacious and with access to the front balcony, perfect for viewing the street activity. Breakfast was great, with French toast, and eggs if desired. There... More

I recently stayed at Windward house with a friend and we had an excellent experience! The house is beautifully decorated in old Victorian style and includes a big front porch. The room was very quaint, clean, and we felt right at home with the Victorian decor and furniture. Sandy Miller is extremely sweet and helpful too. A sit down breakfast... More

My hubby and I have been staying at the Windward House in Cape May for longer than I can remember. Cape May is the most beautiful town by the sea with the best restaurants and the nicest beach on the Jersey Shore. The Windward House is a beautifully restored Victorian home that is ideally situated between the Washington Street Mall... More

The Windward House was in an ideal location! This beautifully decorated, clean and well situated B&B was about 2 blocks to the beach in one direction and 2 blocks to the old town shopping in the other direction. Perfect! We stayed in the Blue Room upstairs and shared the top balcony with another room; there was no one in the... More

House is Beautifully decorated in authentic antiques. Our room was on main level, next to porch, but it was very quiet and very large, with a walk in shower. Also Fridge in room and tv. Breakfast was great, you can eat inside beautiful dining room or on porch. You are literally steps away from beach. The Mad Batter restaurant is... More
