30 Gurney Street, Cape May, NJ 08204
Welcome to the John Wesley Inn Carriage House, situated among the historic Stockton Row Cottages.
Queen Victoria’s reign ended over a century ago, but the grandeur and glorious reminders of that delightful era are preserved in Cape May. The homes in this quaint little fishing village are a rare collection of Victorian architectural styles. The vibrant colors applied by creative artisans and the intricate gingerbread trim of these homes awaken…stimulate the senses with an invitation to enjoy our village’s Victorian past.
The John Wesley Inn is located on a quiet street in the primary Historic District. It is a Carpenter Gothic structure and one of the original Stockton Row Cottages built in 1869 as part of the grand Stockton hotel complex. The hotel was demolished in 1911, but the cottages remain as a reminder of that elegant time. The restoration of the John Wesley Inn was meticulously researched. Attention was given to every detail in order to return the Inn to its original beauty and grandeur. Purchased by Bonnie and Lance Pontin in 2005, the Inn remains one of the finest examples of a true Victorian restoration found anywhere.
With on site paved parking and being located in the heart of the Historic District, evening plans become easy since restaurants, shops, theaters and the new convention center are all just a short walk away from this beautiful Cape May Carriage House.
The John Wesley Inn offers two Carriage House vacation apartment rentals. Apartment “B” is a one bedroom, one bath and apartment “A” is a two bedroom, two and half bath.
