The home has many charming features due to its historical nature as well as the décor. The owner is onsite for the Saturday turnover to ensure all of the apartments are in excellent condition for our guests and to greet and show everyone around on their check-in day.

A recent renter, Joe B. and his family who rented our 2 bedroom apartment (Apt #4) in September of this wonderful letter with us that describes our place perfectly.

'Dear Friends,

We are now back from our week long mini-vacation at Harvard House in Cape May and can resume E-mails. We only had the time for a week but it proved to be both relaxing and fun due in part to the place we chose to stay. It is in a peaceful area just two and half blocks from the beach on a very quite road but just a short stroll to the brouhaha of the town: an ideal situation.

This is a late Victorian house, unpretentious but very charming, informally furnished with an eclectic range of pieces crossing many periods with delightful decorative touches.

The words Charming, Friendly, Comfortable and Roomy with an Informal Ambiance and Spotless say it all. A place well worth considering and quite reasonable to boot!

PS: It has full kitchens with all appliances etc, but with so many great seafood restaurants who wants to cook.)'

We appreciated hearing his feedback and so many other kind letters or notes that are usually left on kitchen tables thanking us for a wonderful place to stay.

Which explains why so many families that have made this there beach house for many years. During our summer season our renters mainly consist of families who have children of all ages. It makes a great place for families to come together for reunions to share their vacation with each other. You can rent one apartment that suits your family or even the entire house (all 4 apartments) which can comfortably sleep up to 30 people (4 more with a pull out couch in our 2 bedroom apartments).

In our off season we continue to have many families renting from us which also include Coast Guard Families attending a Coast Guard graduation at the Coast Guard Base or large wedding parties that need additional accommodations. Many local weddings take place right at the beach on Windsor Avenue or at Congress Hall which are just a few short blocks away. We also have had bachelorette parties or just a friends weekend getaway. In the fall and winter season, many of our guests have enjoyed the Winery tasting / tours , the Sherlock Holmes Mystery weekend or best of all, Christmas in Cape May!

12 thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 3 kids, mother in law, and I stayed at this fantastic location for a week. It was all in all perfect in every way. A couple of blocks from the beach and a very short walk to town. We loved coming back from our daily ventures and felt right at home. This was our first time staying in Cape May for that long a period of time, and it certainly will not be the last - but for sure, we will be booking here not only next year, but every year there after! :-)
