Get away to Cape May For the Weekend

In the center of Cape May's historic victorian district 

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.

Local Tip: Buy 2017 Seasonal Beach Tags Before Prices Go Up!

Attention Beach Goers — get your seasonal tags now before the price goes up

Here's a great local tip

Everyone loves a bargain.

Currently, until the end of March, Cape May beach tags are a relative bargain at $20 each. If you wait till summer it'll cost you about that for 1 week.

Prices go up at the end of March so be sure to stop by Cape May's City Hall and purchase beach tags for your family or friends. 

See you on the beach!

Cape May Beaches Voted Best in the World

According to a recent survey  by Trip Advisor's 20 million+ members, Cape May's beaches have been voted to be the second best in the nation and one of the 10 best in the world. 

How cool is that!

We've always known how incredibly beautiful and fun our beaches are; it's one of the main reasons families love to vacation here every year. It's nice that Cape May gets that recognition for the ongoing effort to keep the beaches clean, beautiful and visitor friendly.

Introducing: Our Cape May Gifts Online Store

We are super excited to announce a new feature of the Longfellow Guest House website — our new online store. This exclusive online store will feature unique Cape May gift ideas for our guests, and also for anyone who's a Cape May fan, both local and visitor alike.

We're launching our store initially with gifts that feature the photography of Michael Longfellow (that's me) in unique, special edition canvas and framed prints.

Anne's Room — A New Guest House Feature

The Longfellow Guest House has been enjoyed by many types of vacationers and Cape May lovers, from women's book clubs, to corporate getaways, and even to weekend retreats with a psychic reader (very interesting). But our sweet spot as a Cape May house rental has always been family vacations. I think that's in part because families identify with our own family experience and the stories we like to share about growing up in Cape May.

The Longfellow House is a Dog Friendly Vacation Home

Dogs Were A Part of Our Family Growing Up

We grew up with dogs in our home and know how much joy and love they can add to a family dynamic. Many times our family travels included MakapuBimini or Maitai joining in on a family vacation or road trip. For one such trip, we travelled all the way down to Sanibel Island, FL in a Datsun B210 station wagon with our family of 5, a baby sitter and Bimini (the first dog on the planet that could chase down a frisbee and catch in mid-air).
