My dashingly handsome boyfriend and I stayed at the White Dove Cottage for a weekend in August 2011 and highly recommend it. The bed & breakfast is conveniently situated on an idyllic, quiet street just a few blocks walking distance from the main strip of restaurants/bars and the ocean. The house itself is perfectly preserved in the Victorian-era style that makes Cape May so charming. Our suite was spacious, warmly decorated and very comfortable. It included a sitting room that is great for reading, knitting, or generally kicking back. The room looked out upon a peaceful yard and a garden inhabited by a tribe of quaint gnomes. I can feel myself relaxing just thinking about it.
Alison, the owner, was professional and eager to offer suggestions and answers to any questions that we had. It's clear that she goes to great lengths to make the White Dove Cottage as inviting as possible. Anything that we needed, be it towels, umbrellas, or beach chairs, she had ready in the main lobby. As other reviewers have pointed out, her breakfasts are incredibly delicious and artfully presented. Even though I forgot to let her know that I am a vegetarian, she was very accommodating with preparing some eggs at the last minute. My boyfriend adds that the meat was also tasty. Also, there were always afternoon treats waiting in the dining room to enjoy on the front porch rocking chairs.
We had a pleasant and memorable stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again!
