Romance/Getaway Series - Henry Sawyer Inn
Walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, town, restaurants and shops the Henry Sawyer Inn is the perfect Cape May Location!
We were able to visit this B&B a few weeks back, and we had a lovely time. The porch has a wide open porch where you can relax with a cup of coffee or tea and a good book and watch the horse drawn carriages go by. Inside they have a parlor, equipped with menus from most of the local restaurants, and there are many fabulous ones to try! Upstairs the rooms are generous in size, with a bed room and sitting area. This was the largest B&B room we've ever stayed in, so we were very impressed with it.
Each morning we had breakfast prepared for us. The host, Barbara, was very gracious and each morning took our order. Breakfast always included fresh fruit or fruit/yogurt parfait, muffins/breads, and a freshly prepared meal such as blueberry pancakes. The food was delicious, and there was always plenty of it.
You may be thinking, this sounds great, but what's the cost to stay here?
They are VERY reasonable for a B&B in this location, especially considering all that you get for this price. Rooms range from $135 to $295 per night, for double occupancy, depending on the room and the season, and this includes a full breakfast, afternoon refreshments, VCR or DVD, on-site parking, private baths, refrigerators, a/c., afternoon refreshments, beach umbrellas, chairs and towels, in addition to Wireless web access. I think that this is a terrific deal, so much so that I don't know why poeple would stay in a hotel in Cape May, when you get so much for this amount, and personal attention! This Inn offers lower rates midweek from Mid - September through Mid - June, and also offers discounts for weekly ( 7 nights ) stay. Some of the other fun things they offer are Spa packages and Special Victorian getaway packages, which would be great for an anniversary trip or honeymoon!
History of the Henry Sawyer Inn
The Henry Sawyer Inn was built in 1877 by Eldridge Johnson, then the treasurer of Cape May, president of the Cape May Savings and Building Association, and trustee of the Presbyterian Church.
Mr. Johnson purchased the property on which he built his home from Henry Sawyer, Cape May's Civil War hero, builder and proprietor of the Chalfonte Hotel, and Cape May city councilman.
Eldridge Johnson lived in this home for 33 years during his long and unique career of public leadership in Cape May.
A plaque on the inn commemorates Mr. Johnson, the inn is named for Mr. Sawyer, and rooms at the inn are named for the ladies in the Johnson & Sawyer families.
On the inn's second floor is displayed the inn's most cherished antique:
a cradle made by Thomas Lincoln, Abraham's father, for use in the Lincoln family home.
