A Letter from Curtis Bashaw
I just had my first swim of the season - much later than usual and long overdue. The ocean allows me to truly relax. The salty buoyancy of the water suspends me under the huge sky. And I drift. To me, there’s no better form of meditation - of integrating the mind, body and spirit - than floating, thinking, diving, pulling the water with my arms to move amidst the currents, the sun and salt cleansing my skin. It is a blissful escape. And it always leads to a great night’s sleep.
As the waves lapped around me, I thought back to the 4th of July celebration we just had with our family of guests and friends on the Grand Lawn at Congress Hall. It was different, but rich and lovely. Everyone had the space that they needed, overlooking the vast sparkling ocean, flag waving, contentedly cradled within the old edifice. It was comforting.
There’s plenty of science to back up the mindset that a vacation by the sea can help with stress reduction, heart disease prevention and much-improved sleep. A few years ago, Wallace Nichols wrote a book called “Blue Mind,” which described the sense of peace that the ocean offers us. I feel that peace when I stroll along the veranda at Congress Hall, just like the Victorians did two centuries ago, or walk along the harborfront at Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor, listening to the gentle chiming of the masts on the yachts.
When we renovated and reopened Congress Hall in 2002, we called it a haven of relaxed elegance and simple pleasures. Our goal was to be a place of resort, a place one goes back to, again and again, to find rest and relaxation. Walking around our family of hotels that weekend I felt proud. Proud that our hardworking team had once again created a safe refuge for our guests.
I hope you’ll seek, and find, some simple pleasures this summer and perhaps enjoy a swim in the sea.
All the best,
Managing Partner, Cape Resorts
It's the simple pleasures that matter most to us here at Cape Resorts. Each of our hotels has its own deeply individual personality, but all share the same warm, welcoming vibe and reflect our commitment to giving our guests truly authentic, all-American resort experiences.
That means beautiful settings, approachable design, an array of wonderful dining options, plus fun activities from sunrise till evening and the sincerest of welcomes from the entire Cape Resorts family.
We look forward to seeing you soon.

Stay in historic seaside charm...
Located on tree-lined Jackson Street and Atlantic Terrace, our elegant, comfortable Virginia Cottages were built in 1891 by the owner of Congress Hall—identical properties which became known as the Seven Sisters. Offering breezy porches, decks and glimpses of the ocean with full kitchens, washers/dryers (and lots of elbow room), the renovated cottages are the perfect choice for a family retreat in the historic center of Cape May. They're located just half a block from the beach.
...or in 62 acres of idyllic open space.
A 10-minute bike ride from the beach, our 62-acre Beach Plum Farm is home to five charming cottages and barns, offering the ultimate private retreat, surrounded by nature. Effortlessly blending rustic chic with top-of-the-line amenities, the cottages and barns offer the ideal escape with all the space you crave. Explore the farm, enjoy your private golf cart and bicycles, light your own outdoor firepit. Inside, enjoy our chef-grade kitchens, taking advantage of our fresh farm produce, or grab ready-made to-go meals from the farm market. At Beach Plum you're in your own world, but still part of ours.
