Family favorite

  • 5 of 5

Our family has consistently enjoyed staying at The Blake House for the past 10 years to celebrate our anniversary. Connie & Jerry are wonderful hosts at this clean and comfortable home away from home. The muffins are delicious and the apartments are well equipped. It is perfectly located only a few blocks from both the beach and the Washington Mall without feeling like you are in the middle of everything. We look forward to returning there every year.

The perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! Everything was perfect--clean, quaint, equipped, comfortable, close to everything. The only thing missing was the opportunity to stay longer!! Our hosts couldn't have been kinder. Hopefully we'll be back.

Charming and comfortable -- the best in Cape May

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect stay at The Blake House. The location on Hughes Street (tree-lined, in the heart of the historic district) is perfect for porch-sitting and quiet people watching, as well as being a short 5-10 minute stroll to the beach and the shopping/eating district.

The apartments are spotless and comfortable, offering baskets of beach read novels, a fully equipped kitchen, and abundant dresser and closet storage. While the third-floor apartment is up several flights of steep stairs, it is flooded with light and exceptionally welcoming.

The owners host a gourmet welcome breakfast on the porch on Sunday mornings. In short, the perfect holiday get-away.

The Blake House is the BEST place to stay in Cape May!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Blake House is the BEST place to stay in Cape May!!!! Lovely street and so convenient to the beach and shopping. The owners of the Blake House are the most attentive folks around, so helpful and there to help you have the best of times with recommendations for restaurants and what to see and do. If you are lucky enough to get an accommodation in season Connie has the nicest brunch on her lovely wrap around porch for all of her guests on Sunday morning. A real treat!!! Can’t say enough about this wonderful place, been staying here now for many many years. Oh by the way the horse and carriage rides come down Hughes street and it is a real step back in time to see and hear the clip clop of the horses, especially in the evening as you sit on Connies porch and sip an iced tea and relax. Just heaven!!!!! All of the apartments are beautiful, roomy and no doubt the cleanest in Cape May.
