About

Inside the modest exterior lies a gem of a restored inn with spacious airy rooms, exceptional period furnishings and some of Cape May's finest stained glass. Association of Historic Inns calls us "The loveliest and most authentically decorated of all the houses we visited." This gracious Edwardian seaside inn has a tradition of hospitality and comfort. Its unbeatable location, in the prime historic district, is 1/2 block to beaches and shopping areas and close to many restaurants and tour sites. Enjoying winter time coziness by the fire or summer sun and shade porches, you can recapture the romance and gentleness of a bygone era.

Nice B & B

3.0 on October 30, 2013

Room we reserved (Renaissance) on the first floor was certainly convenient, but there was way too much furniture in it. Also, there was only one bedside table and would have preferred two. Water pressure for shower good and water always hot. Liked that there was Keurig machine available (with various coffees available), hot water (with variety of tea bags), homemade cookies, and Sherry for a night cap. Breakfasts were good with a nice variety. Inn in great location; walked everywhere. Would stay at the inn again, but would prefer larger room. Looked at the rooms upstairs and they definitely were larger with more room to move around. Also,several of the rooms had outside seating off the room.


Awsome hideaway in the middle of Cape May, NJ

The Windward House is a wonderful Victorian B&B in downtown Cape May, NJ. The hostess, Sandy, was very gracious and warm. She was also very knowledgeable of the area and the history of her home as well as the others in the area. The breakfast arrangement and meals were a gourmet delight. I would highly recommend a stay at the Windward House and experience Sandy's hospitality as well as a beautiful historic town with much to do. R.G. Berry, PA.


love this place!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently and our experience was absolutely wonderful. The Windward House is in a great location, it is right next to the beach and right next to the mall. The decor and furnishings throughout the house were beautiful. The rooms were spacious and included full bathrooms, TVs and mini refrigerators. We stayed in the Edwardian room which had a balcony that was perfect for afternoon tea and late night drinks. The breakfast was delicious too! It was a buffet of eggs, bacon, fruit, muffins, coffee and lots more. Sandy Miller was an excellent hostess and made us feel right at home. We can't wait to come back!
