 Leith Hall Bed and Breakfast is the only professionally restored Cape May Bed and Breakfast Inn at the beach . While the physical surroundings are formal and Victorian, the atmosphere is casual and relaxed. Guests come down in the morning, help themselves to a hearty full breakfast, and lounge on the porch chatting with the hosts. Elan and Susan, and the other guests. In our bed and breakfast, the aroma of brewing freshly brewing coffee and home baked breads wakes you up while quiches, crepes, and egg entrees fortify you for the day at the beach. Afternoon tea includes Elan’s cakes and pastries with hot English tea in the winter and iced tea
