Christmas Candlelight Tour- The Inn of Cape May

Join MAC at the newly renovated Inn of Cape May.  In the fall of 1894, construction began on a brand-new 60-room boarding house at the foot of Ocean Street – with gas lights and an electric ball system that illuminated the hallways and rooms, and best of all, the addition of steam heat throughout the building.

The new boarding house, dubbed The Colonial, provided a popular option for vacationers traveling from Philadelphia and beyond as future owners carry on its legacy today.

Christmas Candlelight Tour- The Mason Cottage

In 1869 Edward Warne, a wealthy Philadelphian Developer and Attorney, purchased the vacant lot at 623-625 Columbia Avenue and began construction on his summer home.  During the construction of the home, Edward and his wife Elizabeth decided to divide the house into two homes (which is why you will  notice two sets of elaborate stairwells at the inn), which would accommodate the Warnes as well as their son John and his new wife.  The Warnes's new home was completed in 1871, just in time for the summer season.  Purchased in 1940 by the Mason family, the inn has been operating as a guest house ever since.
