In the heart of Cape May's historic district, and half a block from the Atlantic Ocean, The Star Inn offers the experience of a classic beach hotel hand-in-hand with modern accommodations and access to upscale resort amenities.

A classic Victorian house -- perfectly at home in quaint Cape May -- the main inn features nine guest rooms. Located on the second and third floor, guest rooms are decorated in bright colors with nautical accents and feature fully renovated bathrooms and period furnishings. Couples find these cozy quarters charming and romantic, though guests should be prepared to find rooms on the smaller side. 

Family-friendly efficiencies include a king-size bed, separate living area with pull-out couch, and kitchenette. In between trips to the beach, guests can relax on a rocking chair on a private balcony or unwind in a private backyard.

All room types feature modern heat and air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, daily housekeeping and Aveda bath products. Beds are fitted with Belgian cotton sheets and Italian cotton duvet covers. 

Star Inn guests can grab La Columbe coffee, juice, yogurt and fresh bakery items from the on-site coffee shop, or head across the street to sister-property Congress Hall for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Blue Pig Tavern. A local favorite, this lively restaurant features fresh produce, meat and eggs from their own 62-acre farm just 2 miles away.

In fact, guests of the Star Inn receive access to all of Congress Hall's amenities, including the pool and beach service, complete with loungers, umbrellas, towels and tables. 

Be sure to make time to stroll through the town -- Conde Nast Traveler readers named Cape May one of the 30 Best Small Cities in America in 2014, noting its "quiet beaches, low-key locals and gorgeous Victorian architecture."
