THE WHALER'S COTTAGE
Some of the first settler’s in Cape May came from New England and were the direct descendants of Pilgrims that landed in Plymouth, MA in 1640. Many migrated south in the 17th century to pursue a life in the growing Whaling industry. The settlers that came to Cape May at this time built timber-framed houses, as opposed to log cabins, carefully crafted with a strength and fortitude that stands the test of time.
On the first floor, you’ll find two seating areas, with comfortable furniture. In the living room, exposed beams give a warm, authentic feel. The focal point of the room is the 1750s fireplace. The first floor is also home to a full kitchen with modern appliances, which is open to the eating area with plenty of seating: enough for up to eight guests. Here you’ll also find a cozy master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom comes complete with a wood burning stove and coffee bar.
Climb the original small colonial staircase to the second floor, where there’s a bedroom with two twin beds. Upstairs a second master bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom, providing a welcome escape from the rest of the cottage.
The Whaler's Cottage is full of the warmth and comforts of home.
