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.
