Located in the heart of Cape May’s historical district three blocks from town and two blocks from one of the most pristine beaches on the Northeast coast, the Majestic Star is an expansive home perfectly positioned to experience one of the most unique towns in America. The short walk along picturesque Columbia Avenue to the downtown restaurant scene, boutique shops, live music venues and more will take you by some of the best-preserved Gothic Revival Victorian architecture in the country built with features modeled after the great churches of Europe. Our home was built in 1870 and past owners include one of the original great publishing families in the country, yet the interior has a decidedly modern beach feel. From either the open-air porch or glass screened in the area watch the horse-drawn carriage tours walk past or take a look across the way at the beautiful Chalfonte Hotel as they host weddings. The Majestic Star was cherished by previous owners for decades including a long stint as a B&B but we are excited to offer introductory rates for our first season renting the 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms house as a single entity to accommodate up to 20 guests. The already well-preserved house is undergoing renovations in June 2020 including a new kitchen, floors, exterior paint, furniture, and drape updates. One of our bedrooms is part of a rear attached cottage which is a perfect place for two guests to have a bit more privacy and also their own kitchen. Other interior highlights include a sunroom located off our first-floor bedroom with its own daybed and reading chair, several gas/electric fireplaces, a large formal dining room, and a well-stocked board game collection of our favorites. Outside our outdoor grill, dining area, and fire pit area perfect for summer night cookouts. We look forward to hosting you!
