The hotel occupies a home that dates back to 1882. The interior, however, is modern and artistic. An onsite gallery hosts rotating exhibits of paintings and photos.
The innkeepers have made going green a priority. They installed 38 solar panels on the roof, energy-efficient showerheads in the bathrooms, and a new dishwasher that saves 25,000 gallons of water per year.
Each guest room is individually decorated and has a private bathroom.
Breakfast is served at the Mad Batter Restaurant on the first floor. You can try house favorites such as the buttermilk pancakes or chorizo and eggs. Feast in the dining room or, if the weather is warm enough, on the garden terrace or front porch.
The hotel has won awards for its restaurant (Best Brunch in the Best of Cape May) and environmental efforts (Cape May County Chamber of Commerce Conservation award).
Carroll Villa is located within walking distance of shopping and the beach.
Cape May, New Jersey: Seaside Resort Town with Victorian Architecture
Long billed as America’s oldest seaside resort, Cape May sits at New Jersey’s southernmost tip. The setting is so idyllic that Travel Channel named the town’s coastline one of the top 10 beaches in the country. Aside from beachcombing, popular pastimes here include fishing, whale watching, and bird watching. In fact, the New York Times called Cape May “one of North America’s hottest birding spots.” You might see bald eagles, herons, and woodcocks. In the spring, keep your eyes peeled for the latter’s intricate mating dance.
After a fire ravaged most of Cape May in 1878, residents rebuilt in the contemporary style of the time, and dozens of their stately Victorian homes remain standing today. Consequently, the Cape May Historic District has earned the distinction of being a National Historic Landmark. Horses and carriages tour the colorful, cottage-lined streets, which have been deemed off-limits to chain stores in order to preserve the classic small-town atmosphere. Along Delaware Bay stands the 1859 Cape May Lighthouse. Those who climb the tower’s 199 stairs are rewarded at the top with an unbeatable view of the Atlantic Ocean.
