    Holiday Rental House – 
    9 Bedrooms, 9 Bathrooms, Sleeps 26
    This historic gem is the most photographed home in Cape May. Built in 1869 by a wealthy Pennsylvania coal baron, John McCreary, its architecture is a mix of Victorian elegance meeting Gothic Revival. Architect Stephen Button designed this beautiful Gothic villa to feature a 60' tower. He also designed her with stenciled and ruby glass arched windows. This home features 4 large public rooms, 9 bedrooms and 9 1/2 baths (mixture of double beds, queen and single beds), all richly decorated with antiques, chandeliers, mahogany trim, beautiful wallpaper and Persian rugs.

The entire house is richly appointed with both Victorian and contemporary furnishings and the completely renovated kitchen is amazing! The posted pictures just don't do it justice. I spent a good deal of time in the kitchen and found everything I needed -... more

We dined out, though there was everything we could possibly have needed in this big beautiful home; the kitchen was the envy of every woman in our group. We all had our own bedrooms (a few stayed in the same rooms,... more
