Poor Richard's Inn : Cape May, NJ

POOR RICHARD'S, built in 1882 as the private residence of a Cape May, NJ hotel owner, has been run as an inn since 1977. It's one of that small number of owner-operated inns that offer exceptional overnight accommodations in National Landmark buildings. Each has its own special mix of style and service.

Harriet Sosson is the inn keeper and an artist as well.  She exhibits at Soma Gallery in Cape May, NJ.

"At Poor Richard's we try to strike a balance between today's informality and yesterday's charm, without being pretentious or overbearing," says Harriet. "We're friendly and helpful, but respect your privacy; and while the rooms are furnished with period pieces, our primary goal is to have guests feel comfortable and 'at home'—we're not aiming at strict Victorian authenticity...and our prices aren't too outrageous."  Visit the web site: Poor Richard's Inn.

And do say hello to Harriet from Storefrontwindows.

I spent a week there and it was lovely. Two minutes from the beach, two minutes from town, and a great atmosphere. Highly recommend Poor Richards at the tip of Southern NJ... Cape May...
