A Special Way To Enjoy Cape May as a Couple

We've created a terrific setup for a special weekend getaway for 2 in America's oldest shore resort, Cape May. This one room suite is called Anne's room, name after our Mom who stayed here a few months each year when she wasn't living in Arizona or traveling the world.  

This cozy accommodation is available as a one-off weekend rental (separate from the main house rental) during the Spring, Fall and Winter off-season. We're hooked up via AirBnB so it's super easy to book it out.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editor: Cape May One of My Favorite Beaches

The golden hues of Cape May's Cove Beach at the end of the day. This photograph has no retouching, that's the way the light looked when I took this shot. Amazing. 

MJ Day is the editor of the Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit editions, and has travelled the world (more than 100 countries) searching for the the most beautiful beaches, oceans and unique locations from which to shoot their iconic edition. In a recent USA Today article, MJ listed her  favorite locales, and there in the 7th spot was little ol' Cape May. 

It's always exciting for us to see Cape May acknowledged for what its fans have always known; that this town is such a unique and beautiful place to enjoy with your family and friends. 

USA Today article

Cape May, N.J. — Day was raised in South Jersey and spent a lot of time on its beaches, even working there as a lifeguard. “The whole New Jersey shore is one of the most unsung areas,” she says. One of her favorite spots is the historic town of Cape May. “It’s really family-oriented, so quaint and sweet and lovely. It’s a classic Americana vacation.”

Introducing Our First Limited Edition "Cape May Island" Hats

These Are Super Cool Hats

Today we're introducing the first of our new series of Longfellow Designed products that celebrate the spirit of Cape May. We start things off with our new custom designed Cape May Island Hat. Made by Legacy, a long time creator of the best fitting, highest quality hats around, these hats have a comfortable fit and quality feel that is unlike any other hat out there. We know you'll appreciate the high quality attention to detail too. 

Designed For The Cape May Fan

Our custom hat design celebrates the little promoted fact that Cape May is an island. It seems strange that there's not more hubaloo made of this fact. How many tee shirts or hats show the Cape May island shape? We couldn't find any so we designed our own.

We love the fact Cape May is an island. It's such a unique and fun place to explore and create memories with family and friends. That it's an island, simply adds to the mystique of why people love it so much. So we wanted to put that fact front and center with style. 

You Won't Find This Hat Anywhere Else

We executed on the island concept by cutting a custom green felt outline of the Cape May island shape, and then detailing that shape with an ivory embroidered stitching around the coast. These are Longfellow House branded hats but we kept the house branding very subtle with a clean and elegant white star right where we're located on Hughes Street. And on the hat back text simply reads The Longfellow House Cape May. Check out the pictures above to see more detail. 

Click the "Add to Cart" button below to order directly from this page.

Or, you can order from the online store part of this website. This hat design is a Limited Edition so grab 'em while you can. Oh, and post a shot of you or your family wearing one to our Facebook page — we'd love to see it and hear about how much you love your new Cape May hat. Thanks, we hope you enjoy them!
