Afternoon Reception at Bacchus Inn

The Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast is proud to have accommodated and supported the 2013 Higher Education – K-12 Bridges Conference.

The Bacchus Inn staff have worked with members of P4CE for some time providing accommodations for their semi-annual board meetings and taking on the role of their liaison to Cape May. Planning quality events such as this require a knowledge of the destination and resources. The Bacchus Inn prides itself on understanding what Cape May has to offer as a beach resort and conference destination.  Through a consistent dialogue, The Bacchus Inn staff in union with The Cape May Convention Center provided information and assistance to P4CE event planners to help develop a quality experience for the conference attendees.

The Bacchus Inn was honored to provide accommodations during the conference for keynote speakers, Hall Davidson of Discovery Education and Apple Computer’s Steve Zalot. The Bacchus Inn provided accommodations for the executive members of the P4CE board and sponsors of this conference; Wilkes University, 3rd Learning, Chester County Intermediate Unit, Research for Better Schools, and Discovery Education.

During the first evening of the conference, The Bacchus Inn hosted a networking event as per the P4CE staff request. Some food was provided by The Bacchus Inn, but the social engagement also showcased exceptional products from Cape May Winery and Seaside Cheese of West Cape May.

This 2013 Higher Education Bridges Conference in Cape May event was a success for the planners, attendees, and Cape May.  A coordinated effort amongst P4CE staff, The Bacchus Inn, and the Cape May Convention Center were essential. The Bacchus Inn hopes that this conference will become a model for future events showcasing our beautiful seashore resort, historic inns, and the Cape May Convention Center.

Birders Unite! It is the World Series of Birding in Cape May

May 14th, 2011 by johnmatusiak

The birds arrived several weeks ago here in Cape May. This weekend those who love birding will arrive to see the migration in a fun competition. Visitors don’t have to venture far to find there feathery friends. Guest of the Bacchus Inn Bed and breakfast need go no further than the porch to hear the birds beautiful songs. In spring the birds follow their instincts and begin the spring migration.

Cape May offers a perfect spot for birds to rest along their journey. There is plenty of food and mating partners.
The migration offers bird watchers a marvelous opportunity to see a large variety of birds. Many of these birds are not found in the Cape May area the rest of the years. Cape May is a pit spot for the birds and a great opportunity for locals to see exotic varieties. The males are in their mating plumage trying to attract the females. It is something to see.

A group of these bird watching aficionados decided to make a friendly competitions out of the unique birding experience here in Cape May. The group try to identify as many varieties of birds as possible in a given period of time. There is a misconception that all the birds are seen. This is not always the case. In fact many birds are identified by call alone. It takes a trained team but birders enjoy the experience. The WSOB

competition is coordinated with the Cape May bird observatory. Results of the event can be found on there website.

If you are looking for a new hobby, birding at Cape May Point or in the Cape May region may be the answer. There are always other birders available to offer expertise and fine company in this nature seashore habitat.

Christmas season is in swing in Cape May

December 7th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

As soon as you cross the bridge into Cape May you are surrounded by seasons greetings. The lamp posts are dressed in garland with images of snowflakes illuminating the street scape. The Washington Street Mall is decorated with care and visions of holiday greetings dancing in all the merchants’ heads. The Bacchus Inn and other bed and breakfasts are dressed for the season and welcoming guests to see our best Victorian Christmas.

Cape May MAC is coordinating the tours of the inns. They are also offering trolley tours and other Christmas attractions. The Physick Estate, Cape May’s museum house, is a winter wonderland. The trees surrounding the grounds are strung with lights and the house offers its own unique Victorian Christmas charm.

The scents of the season are everywhere; cinnamon, pine cones, and evergreen surround visitors with wisps of hot chocolate and hot apple cider throughout.

The air is filled with laughter and kids are all similes.

It is a great time to be in Cape May because the only thing missing from this holiday season is you.

Cape May has some Old faces in New Places on the Washington Street Mall

July 26th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

The hot new T-shirt in Cape May is titled, “Capemaniac”. For many visitors their trip to Cape May is a ritual, an old habit that is too good to break.

Many have a predetermined plan nurtured and edited over years to provide the perfect getaway.  This may include a walk on the Washington Street Mall or a bike ride to the Cape May Point lighthouse.

For some it is all about “that” store or restaurant. This year has brought some changes. Tisha’s restaurant has been a mainstay of Beach Ave for years. Tisha’s restaurant provided great food with a picture perfect view of the ocean. The convention hall projected forced a move and now the restaurant has moved from the beach to the Washington Street Mall.

Tisha’s restaurant reopened on Friday July 23,2010. Two of our guests here at the Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast went to dinner last evening. They loved the ambience and were pleasantly reassured from their dining experience that Tisha’s is still a fine Cape May restaurant. The breakfast ritual at the Bacchus Inn is a review of  the previous night’s dinner. Jim and Joanne,longtime repeat guest, wanted everyone to know …that the new Tisha’s still has the great food while set in an elegant dining room”. So if you loved Tisha’s before on Beach Ave then try it again at its new location on the Washigton Street mall. If you have never been to Tisha’s restaurant then you should make a point to try one of the more refined spots of Cape May.

Tisha’s restaurant has a new neighbor, Bath Time. Bath Time was formerly located across from Swain’s hardware. Now it is conveniently located on the Washington Street Mall. Bath Time  specializes in custom scented bath salts but it also has other supplies for the bathroom.

Both Tisha’s and Bath Time have been long time businesses in Cape May.  They are a custom part of many visitors Cape May experience. Now they are very convenient neighbors to visit on the Washington Street Mall.
