Hotel, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
A romantic Queen Anne cottage by-the-sea, the Prince Edward was built for I. Leaming Sheppard in 1896. It is one of the jewels in Cape May's Victorian crown. This nineteenth century airy seaside cottage noted for its variety of original stained glass windows throughout the entire home. It includes what is believed to be the largest working stained glass window in Cape May. This window is the highlight of an elegant entrance hall.
The cottage has been beautifully restored and is operated as a guest house, offering one and two bedroom suites each with private baths. The sweeping staircase, high ceilings, old fashioned ceiling fans, Victorian baths and stenciling all add to the charm and elegance of this beautiful home. Each suite is furnished with nineteenth century antiques and decorated to give a warm Victorian ambiance.
The Prince Edward is located on historic Jackson Street in the heart of Cape May. It is on the beach block in between the beach and the historic walking mall.

The outdoor showers are typical and a nice spot to clean off the sand. I found that I just did my daily showers down there when I got back from the beach- not just sand-off. The parking area is tight but adequate. Note that they HAVE a parking area. That fact alone is significant. We found it very easy to leave our sandy beach chairs, etc in the back of our vehicle on the way into the suite and pickup on the way out.
The two flights of steps up to the suite was a bit of a bummer at move-in and move-out.
Our suite overlooked Jackson St. It was a little loud at night for my taste but, bear in mind we live way back in the country. If you're used to that sort of thing, it may not bother you.
The BEST thing is the location. Very easy walk to the beach. Just off the Washington St. Mall (great place for restaurants and shopping).
Overall, I would definitely say that I was satisfied with Prince Edward. I would consider returning if we would be looking for that type of situation again. My wife and I are more used to the luxuries of a B&B. We'll be heading further south for family vacations (OBX) and may only come back to Cape May for couples weekend getaway back at our B&Bs.

High Marks for The Prince Edward
Renee and Bob have a beautiful wrap-around porch that is a wonderful place to sit and read and watch people coming and going from the beach (1/2 block away). The porch swing quickly became my daughters favorite place to sit and read before going out to dinner.
We brought our bicycles with us and had a great time biking all over Cape May and were happy to discover that the town has extensive bicycle lanes running along many of the roadways. Renee and Bob have a very large garage on the property that is a great place for storing your bikes and beach equipment when you are not using them.
There is alot to do in Cape May! We were worried our 20 year old would get bored but, she had a great time going to the beach, shopping at the Washington Street Mall (1/2 block away and full of very unique shops and restaurants, including a very nice bookstore), bicycling to the lighthouse and trying out the numerous restaurants with us. Cape May has a very extensive Nature Conservacy program and they have different activities going on all day, every day. We went on a bird walk one morning and saw 10 Great Blue Herons! We were also very lucky to be in Cape May for the 4th of July - my husband and I have not seen such a beautiful firework display in years. It is fun to just walk around town viewing all of the different B & B's - they all look like they came out of the pages of a Victorian novel with their beautiful gardens and colorful gingerbread trims. We actually only used our car once the entire week, to go to the Cape May Zoo which was a nice morning trip.
Renee and Bob are very helpful and accomodating. If you need a restaurant suggestion, or directions how to get somewhere they are very happy to help. I only have good things to say about our stay at The Prince Edward -we liked it so much we have already booked the same week for next year. We used to go to the Outer Banks every summer but found that there is much more to do in Cape May without the long drive to get there (we are from upstate NY). It is a great place for families who like to do a variety of things or just sit on the beach and relax watching the dolphins.
