Nice Inn at the shore

Wonderful experience
We were staying in Wildwood Crest New Jersey and had to leave Friday because the hotel was booked for the weekend. I went online and found this old Victorian house across the street from the shore that had a vacancy for Friday night. We had never spent the night in Cape May before so we thought why try it. The bed and breakfast was beautiful and the breakfast was outstanding. Great piano music and bar.

Serenity at the Shore
Staying at The Peter Shields Inn was thoroughly rejuvenating and pampering. The historic Inn offers luxurious and inviting accommodations in my most favorite beach community in South Jersey. It’s beachfront location is ideal for enjoying the natural ocean beauty easily and from every restful location on the property. The bedding was heavenly as was the service and on site fine dining restaurant. The wine and cheese reception, breakfast and all day snacks were equally wonderful as the five star dinner. I cannot wait to go back to The Peter Shields Inn. It is my new number one destination for complete serenity within driving distance from home. Thank you so much for your kindness and hospitality
