The Goodman House here we come!

Earlier this week we booked our summer vacation with the proprietor of The Goodman House by Baron, located on Decatur Street just up the road from the famous Merion Inn. Making our reservation was a breeze, thanks to the wonderful owner of the home. We have never stayed here before, but the reviews were uniformly fantastic, as you can see:

The Goodman House is the nicest place in Cape May. The rooms are beautifully decorated and it is extremely clean. Mrs Goodman makes everyone feel very comfortable.

After 35 years of vacationing in Cape May, we've found a place that we truly love and enjoy in the Goodman House. This is our second season at the Goodman House and we've already booked our vacation there for next year. Less than a block from the beach and private parking, you can't beat the convenience. My wife rents the Raggedy Ann & Andy Suite for two weeks and we take turns coming down between myself and our kids. We always have a cookout on the barbecue and then sit on the spacious porch, relax, and watch the world go by. Mrs. Goodman is a gracious host and can't do enough to make you feel welcomed and at home. I just left Cape May last night and I can't wait to return. See you on the beach!

Right now, they are offering a good rate on some of the rooms. Here is the owner's description of what's available:

Enjoy your summer get away at the lovely Goodman House located on Decatur Street, one of the finest, in heart of Cape May's historic district

Just stroll a block to the pristine beaches or a half block to the Washington Mall for shopping, fine entertainment and dining. Sit and relax on our wrap around porch, enjoy the sea breeze, gaze at the star lite nights, watch the horse and buggy go by, and feel your stress melt away!

The Goodman House by Baron offers private apartments that combine both old world charm and a casual elegance. All have fully appointed private kitchens and baths and wireless internet access.

Everything you'll need for a perfect seaside get-away is here. We provide all your linens and bath towels! Kitchens have all the necessities: microwave, coffee and tea makers, refrigerator, stove, place settings.

The 3rd Floor Suite sleeps six and offers an enormous master bedroom with king sized bed and a double trundle bed, a full kitchen with breakfast nook, a gracious living room with reading corner and large t.v. along with a second bedroom with two twin beds.

The Shirley Temple/2nd Fl. Rear Suite sleeps four and is nestled overlooking our gardens with beautiful brass double bed, vanity area, living room with pull out queen bed, t.v., kitchenette and bath."

One final note: this is an unpaid rave for the Goodman House. I simply wanted to write up this place b/c the owner is so kind and pleasant to deal with, something I don't always find. I look forward to writing about our stay later this year!


  1. We stayed at the Goodman house last year and loved it. I was trying to get back in touch with them, perhaps go again this year, but their site is gone. I hope all is okay there.

  2. Danielle -- we loved the Goodman House, too. I can't find their old website, either. If I hear anything, I will update the blog.

  3. I tracked it down! Someone else is running it now, website is http://www.goodmanhousecapemay.com./
