My wife and I made a last minute decision to come to Cape May for just one night and found most hotels and bed and breakfasts didn't offer just one night--even in off season---then we found a website for The Eldredge House and saw that they offered one night stays--all year round!! We contacted Todd, the innkeeper just two days before and he couldn't have been more helpful....we were able to stay in the "Thomas Eldredge" room for the one night we wanted. The House is just a short drive or walk from the main area of stores and attractions--Washington Street Mall, etc....yet is in a wonderfully quiet residential area.
We found the hotel to be very clean and room to be so cozy. The bed was especially comfy--and the extra pillows were a big plus!
Also, Todd couldn't have been more gracious in telling us all that was going on in the cape that weekend, and had wonderful restaurant recommendations---my wife and I HIGHLY suggest anyone visiting Cape May to try Backstreet Cafe--wonderful little place owned by a husband and wife team who made us a wonderful breakfast Saturday morning---(the hotel price includes breakfast vouchers to three different places nearby).....
if you are in the area, their Bananas Foster French toast is absolutely to die for!!
Just wanted to say thanks Todd for a wonderful stay and we really hope to come stay with you again over the summer!
