The Dormer House, a Cape May Bed and Breakfast, is a center hall "colonial revival" built in 1899 for a rich marble dealer John Jacoby of Philadelphia. Mr. Jacoby, founder and first Commodore of the Cape May Yacht Club, built the cottage for his family as a summer house for "gracious living and entertaining." We offer 12 rooms & suites and an attached cottage.
Our Bed and Breakfast offers a spacious "center hall" and is a beautiful room to welcome arriving guests. This Cape May B&B has a complete magnificent marble fireplace large open stairway, and sparkling stained glass panes. For safety reasons smoking is permitted only on the veranda.
Wide, wonderful long porches wrap the Dormer House Bed and Breakfast. You will love the grand porches as you rock away the hours inside or out during Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter. A delightful spot to sip a glass of fresh, ice cold lemonade and let the quiet and charm of Cape May sink deep inside. A perfect beginning for a few days at the shore.
The tastefully decorated rooms display pastel colors with eclectic furnishings, queen beds and a wonderful assortment of antique mirrors, period furniture. Lace curtains dress the wide open windows throughout this pleasant cheery house. A private balcony entrance at this New Jersey Bed and Breakfast adds romance to our one bedroom cottage.
