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.

The owner and staff were very considerate and helpful. My husband and I truly enjoyed the quaint inn with a very comfy porch to relax and mingle with other guests. On our last day, we were encouraged to hang around even after we checked out of our room. We were able to remain in the off site parking lot and store our things in the parlor. The furnishings were beautiful and room was very clean and comfortable. We even had our own porch! We are definitely planning to return as soon as we are able!

Our first stay at a B&B and we couldn't have asked for more. Sandy and Nancy cook a delicious breakfast, great complimentary cookies and are very warm and friendly. We had complimentary beach chairs, badges, bike racks and parking. It felt as if we were visiting family. We will definitely stay at the Windward House again!! Janet and Manny

Room was clean and well prepared for our stay. We stayed in the Edwardian Room, very nice with shared 2nd floor balcony overlooking Jackson St. Daily breakfast was excellent both days. Sitting out on the covered porch having coffee w/ breakfast watching Jackson St come alive in the morning never gets old. Offsite parking in lot is provided as well as beach badges and beach chairs. Sandy Miller is a wonderful host and very pleasant to talk with. Location of the property is within walking distance to just about everything as it is in the heart of Cape May. This was the 2nd time we stayed here and both times have been outstanding. We definitely will be coming back to the Winward House. Rich & Jenn Burlington, NJ

My friend and I wanted a quick fun get away with lots to do. We traveled from New York which was a breeze. Cape May has loads of fun things to do and at the Windward House you are in a very convenient location. The beach is close as is the night life. We went to a play "Moon Over Buffalo" which was great and walking distance to the theatre and restaurant. We especially liked to sit on the porch at Winward House and watch the action outside. There is coffee and tea available all the time so it is very relaxing to sit, sip and people watch. When we took a horse and buggy ride as well as the Historical Trolly ride we found we passed right by the Windward House. There is a great story to that which I won't spoil for you but adds to the fun! Sandy is a wealth of information and very helpful. She had informational literature in the lobby about things to do. The Windward House is an excellent "home away from home" in Cape May.
