  10.  John & Lisa opened The Bacchus Inn B&B in Cape May, NJ!

That is correct, 10 years ago John & Lisa opened the doors to a new bed & breakfast in Cape May, The Bacchus Inn.  They started with 1 house and 6 guests rooms.  Because John was also in the wine business at the time,  it seemed to make sense to have a Bed and Breakfast with a wine theme.  It proved to be a success and 2 1/2 years later they purchased the house across the street (formerly The Brass Bed) expanding the number of guest rooms to 13.

To celebrate the first 10 years in business, there are special discounts and special events planned for the end of the summer and the fall.  Be sure to check back to find out more!

Cape May Farmer's Market

July 12th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

Tuesday’s are a good day to be in Cape May. Every Tuesday the Farmer’s Market assemblies to sell fresh fruits and vegetables, listen to music, and checkout the vendors. Visitors enjoy the stroll through the Farmer’s Market just off Broadway St behind the West Cape May Fire Hall in West Cape May.

Guest stock up on snacks for the beach or the front porch. Some spike their favorite afternoon refreshments with fresh berries. Other guest enjoy a good peach while reading a book. The market is fresh and offers a variety of goods to satisfy most people.

The West Cape May Farmer’s market is only a short bike ride from the center of Cape May. On your next visit  to Cape May enjoy the charm of a lazy walk through the market.

Cape May Theater

June 24th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

Cape May has a lot to offer any vacationer. One attraction that stands out consistently is the Cape May Stage. The stage is located in the center of Cape May just minutes from the bed & breakfast, hotels, and vacations homes. You wouldn’t know that during the show. You may think you are in the Big Apple. The actors and plays are first rate performances. The Cape May Stage has always been good but under the guidance of Roy Steinberg it has become something more.

I Hate Hamlet, directed by Roy Steinberg, is currently on stage June 16th to July 17. Patrons rave about the comic poke at Shakespeare.

Patrons appreciate the updated seating. The stage received a grant a couple of years ago and constructed a theater seating arrangement with comfortable chairs and good sight lines throughout.

Next time you visit Cape May try the Cape May Stage. It is an evening out you won’t regret.
