Leith Hall sparkles with multi-patterned walls and shimmering gilded surfaces. Our bedroomsreservations link are furnished with Victorian antiques including walnut or brass beds, hand carved mahogany tables, laces and linens, fringes and tassels. Our stained glass French doors face  onto the shady verandah.

Amidst all this Victorian luxury, we haven’t forgotten modern amenities. All of our rooms and suites feature private baths and several include refrigerators for cooling your beverages for the beach.

Gibson GirlYour hearty Victorian breakfast is served from antique silver, crystal and Royal Worcester china. The aroma of freshly brewing coffee and home baked breads wakes you up with quiches, crepes, and egg entrees fortify you for the day. We offer beach chairs and towels if you’re heading for the surf. We offer directions and advice if you’re looking for antiques. Perhaps best of all, we offer a beautifully restored parlor and library if you’re planning on doing absolutely nothing. There’s a Victorian cabinet grand piano if you’re feeling musical, hundreds of books if you’re feeling literary, and extremely comfy chairs and ottomans if you’re feeling like a nap.

Help yourself to Sherry in the Parlor

After working on your tan all day, you can join us for afternoon English Tea with fresh baked sweets. We’ll help with dinner reservations at Cape May’s many fine restaurants. At night the ocean breezes and the sound of the surf will lull you to sleep.
