No trip to Cape May, NJ is complete without a stay at the historical Carroll Villa Hotel.
With the building dating back to 1882 and perpetually refreshed and renewed with all the modern amenities travelers hope to find during a getaway, the hotel has been perfecting its hospitality since it opened in 1976, which means that you can expect a warm welcome and extraordinary service from the moment you step into the beautiful Victorian house.
Antique Charm with a Modern Touch
Whether you’re planning a romantic trip, a family get-together, or a quick weekend staycation, the Carroll Villa has 19 rooms for all kinds of travelers. There are three room types to choose from: The Jackson rooms all feature a King bed, plenty of natural light from the large windows, and spacious floorplans. The Broadway rooms are tastefully decorated in a classical style that recalls the golden days of Cape May. Some Broadway rooms are able to accommodate more than two guests, which make them a perfect choice for family vacations. Finally, the Sunset rooms feature Queen-sized beds and a cozy sitting area, making them ideal for quiet getaways and for catching up on that book that you’ve always wanted to finish reading.
To enhance your Cape May trip, the Carroll Villa also offers additional specials: why not surprise and delight your sweetheart with a bottle of champagne, fresh-cut flowers, or chocolate-dipped strawberries from the moment they step into the room?
Steps from the Beach and Everything Else
The Carroll Villa is all about location, location, location: it’s set in the middle of Cape May’s historic district and only half a block from the beach! Looking for some fun in the sun? Starting in the summer, the hotel provides complimentary beach towels, as well as beach umbrellas and beach chairs. Carroll Villa is only one block away from Cape May’s Washington Street, the lively pedestrian street, as well as plenty of boutiques, specialized shops, and cafes. For a true taste of the city, wander along Beach Avenue to gaze at the Victorian architecture sprinkled throughout the street, take a trip out to Cape May Lighthouse, or head inland to visit the vineyards and Historic Cold Spring Village, which shows what life was like in the 17th and 18th centuries.
The Mad Batter food and drink
Speaking of food… Don’t miss the hotel’s very own restaurant, The Mad Batter, which has been called one of the best restaurants in Cape May multiple times. Guests of Carroll Villa are treated to a voucher that can be used at the restaurant, which means you can sample breakfast specials such as the fluffy buttermilk pancakes; the Victorian Brunch; and the in-house special, Mad Batter Benedict. Definitely don’t miss the guest favorite, Morgan Rostie, which is a delectable combination of eggs and crab, surrounded by sun-dried tomatoes and crispy fried potatoes and topped off with herbs. With plenty of options (including a vegan menu!), fresh ingredients, and live music, it’s no wonder The Mad Batter has hundreds of reviews like, “The best dining experience you’ll ever have” and “My favorite restaurant in Cape May.”
From delicious meals to an authentic atmosphere, friendly service, and cozy accommodations, you can find it all at the Carroll Villa.
