SUMMER IN COOL CAPE MAY

August 18th, 2015 by johnmatusiak

Summer is here and with it comes the heat. But it is OK because Cape May and The Bacchus Inn B&B are prepared and welcoming!

The Atlantic Ocean is still cool but comfortable after the initial plunge. The sun is hot all day. The evening offers relief and a cool breeze.  The Cape May beaches are always a welcome oasis down by the shore break. The breeze is pleasant and the sounds of the ocean are comforting. If the beach is too much, one can always retreat to the shops, restaurants, or an ice-cream parlor for a welcomed break.

The Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast is air conditioned. Afternoon refreshments include ice cold lemonade or a complimentary glass of sangria or wine. If you are ready for a snack, we also offer a variety of cheeses, crackers, olives, or nuts.

There is still lots to do in Cape May this summer.

Come down, visit and enjoy!

Cape May still cozy in 2015 with new attractions for your getaway vacation

June 12th, 2015 by johnmatusiak

The Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast is ready for the 2015 summer season. After a long, cold, winter and very chilly spring the warm weather is a welcomed change for Cape May.  The restaurants are open and the Washington Street Mall stores are filled with new summer fashion,  home decor, and whimsy. The air smells of good food and many vacationers are juggling bags and the obligatory ice cream cone. Everyone can put their concerns to rest because the Fudge Kitchen still has their employees offering free samples of fudge.

At the Bacchus Inn the porches are filling. Guests are out reading or people watching as the trolleys and horse and buggy go by. Afternoon refreshments are attended and the conversation follows the thoughts of the day. Sometimes the conversations goes to whats new. Well, to that thought, the Fire Pit Fridays at Willow Creek winery have been popular right through the cold weather. Willow Creek is the only winery on Cape May island although Cape May Winery, Hawk Haven Winery , and Turdo Winery are just off Island. They all have special events during the week. We lost one of the great Cape May restaurants in Cucina Rosa at the end of 2014. The previous owners were ready to retire. We now have That’s Amore in its place. It offers italian fare and has received good reviews from our guest. Gecko’s has moved to West Cape May. It is now on the way to the Cape May Point Lighthouse on West Perry St. The menu has changed slightly but it still has many favorites from the old place. The Pilot House is gone and now reopened as Finn’s.  The new owners undertook major renovations and the street scape is dramatically different.  I cannot comment on the fare because no one has gone and come back with a review.

Overall Cape May is the same cozy place we have learned to love as much as that comfortable old pair of shoes you will never throw away. Cape May has just added some new attractions just like the laces we needed to maintain those favorite shoes.  The Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast hopes you gather those favorite shoes and revisit Cape May and the Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast for a relaxing comfortable stroll.

 

VACATIONS ARE IMPORTANT FOR STRESS RELIEF, INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY, AND OVERALL GOOD HEALTH

January 22nd, 2015 by johnmatusiak

Studies have shown that not taking vacations is linked to health problems.  One study found that men who were at high risk for heart disease but failed to take annual vacations were 32% more susceptible to dying from a heart attack.

Alternatively, taking vacations have been found to help us “recharge our batteries”; we sleep more and sleep better during vacation and continue to for a period of time after the vacation (potentially up to 5 weeks afterwards!). Our brain responses become quicker after vacations, ultimately making us more productive in our jobs. In a study conducted in 2010, 35% of Americans feel better about their job and are more productive after a vacation.

Other benefits of taking time away include:

  • Vacations Promote Creativity
  • Vacations Decrease Burnout
  • Vacations Strengthen Bonds with Our Significant Other
  • Vacations Improve Our Overall Well-Being (One study found that three days after vacation, the participants’ physical complaints decreased, their quality of sleep improved, and their overall mood improved as compared to before their vacation. These gains were still present weeks later for many of these participants, especially in those who experienced a more satisfying vacation.)
  • Vacations Relieve Stress (No surprise here! Additionally, research shows that a satisfying vacation can lead to the experience of fewer stressful days up to five weeks later! How’s that for a return on an investment?)

Unfortunately, the reality is that about 25% of Americans don’t take any vacation at all.  Some people just don’t take vacations often enough.  While not everyone is in a situation to take a week-long vacation, there is no excuse to arrange a short getaway every once in a while.  The Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast is a great choice for anyone looking for time away. Whether for an extended vacation or a quick getaway, The Bacchus Inn B&B will deliver a satisfying retreat to help you “recharge your battery”. Your job and your health depends on it!
