Built in 1869, the Gingerbread House is one of the eight Stockton Row Cottages situated in the historic District that has been meticulously and elegantly restored. This charming Victorian house is loaded with gingerbread woodwork, incorporating the innkeeper's talents and craftsmanship. His creations include the double entrance doors of teakwood with beveled glass and upgraded bathrooms of teakwood and corian counters. Victorian furnishings, lace curtains, period wallpapers, original Cape May watercolors by Fred's mother, award-winning photographs and classical music provide a lovely atmosphere with friendly service and attention to detail. Breakfast, afternoon tea, beach tags, fireplace, private and share bathrooms and wicker-filled guest veranda. = Block from the beach and walking distance to restaurants and shopping.

Wonderful location--1/2 block from beach and very short walk to shopping and dining. Comfortable breezy porch for relaxing and reading. Owners clearly want guests to enjoy themselves and go out of their way to make it happen!

We were amazed by the clean, quiet, eloquent atmosphere of both the resort, Cape May, and the delightful Gingerbread House. The proximity to the beach, restaurants, and shopping was most convenient. Our Cape May weekend was a memorable birthday present. Thank you Fred and Joan Echevarria. Allen & Anita Barclay, Cheverly MD
