Our Stay at the Star Inn in Cape May

Carriage House 2

I’ve been meaning to post about our recent stay at the charming Star Inn in Cape May, part of the Cape Resorts family of hotels and fabulous eateries. We’d walked past this hotel a number of times in the past, while staying in nearby Wildwood Crest and driving into Cape May every single night. This time, we checked in to our Carriage House room and immediately saw its potential as a Girlfriend Getaway suite with its roominess and upscale design. Not to mention its awesome kitchen and fully-stocked supplies in case you want to cook a great dinner while you’re there. Two spacious, airy bedrooms and a pull-out couch mean you can comfortably fit several friends during your fun group stay. (Ask for the upper floor suite — that view is excellent!)

It didn’t even occur to us to cook anything, since we were right across the street from Congress Hall’s fantastic restaurants. Upon suggestion by our friend Laura, we tried the stuffed French Toast at the Blue Pig Tavern’s breakfast, and it was sensational. Marscapone in the morning? Absolutely. And Joe loved his omelette so much, we went  back every morning.

I spent a lot of time out on our suite’s deck overlooking the ocean, spending some time in the cozy chairs and on the swing, and although I didn’t get to order mimosas to enjoy al fresco, it’s on my list for the TWO trips we have planned this spring and summer to stay at The Star Inn again and again.

The beds were comfy, the shower spa-like, the night quiet.

Not that we were looking into our neighbor’s windows, but we did see a pretty mint color in a corner room, so we may try that room on a future visit!

Here are some photos of The Star Inn’s rooms:

Oh, and they have excellent coffee and fresh-baked pastries in the lobby! And fantastic drinks in the Brown Room in Congress Hall. And a sweet gift shop. I could go on and on forever about how much I love The Star Inn. It’s the only place, besides our honeymoon resort, that we would (and will!) go back to again and again!
