Bed & Breakfasts fit for a queen

4The Queen Victoria

Cape May, New Jersey

The grande dame of B&Bs, the historic Queen Victoria is the largest in this quaint seaside town, with 34 rooms. Much like a four-star hotel, this relaxing bed and breakfast, housed in four restored Victorian-era buildings, offers concierge services for guests — which could include arranging dinner reservations, carriage rides or in-room massage appointments. "We have pantries we keep stocked around the clock: soda, juice, water. And it's complimentary. That's something smaller B&Bs can't do," says Doug McMain, innkeeper. Rooms include high-end amenities like plush bedding, 400-thread-count cotton sheets, feather pillows and spa robes. Many rooms feature whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, flat-screen TVs and DVD players.
