Rooted:
Early Spring Gardening

BEACH PLUM FARM COTTAGES

Available for Three-Night Midweek Stays from March 18 through April 25, 2024

Join Beach Plum Farm Agricultural Director Christina Albert for a hands-on Rooted getaway focused on planning and planting an early Spring garden.

View Sample Itinerary

read more

The farm-to-table movement has grown exponentially in the last five years, but truthfully it is getting to the core of a very ancient practice. It hearkens back to a lifestyle that was both healthy and sustainable: consuming that which is available to us in this environment at this time, in this season. Modern technology has allowed us to use preservatives, expand the lifespan of fruits, vegetables and meats, to a point where this food no longer adds nourishment in the purest sense.

Since its inception in 2016, our Kitchen Garden has thrived as a tangible link between Beach Plum Farm and Cape May's vibrant culinary community. "From the beginning, the philosophy behind the raised beds was to create a place for our Chefs to experiment with different vegetables, fruits, and herbs," says Farm Agricultural Director Christina Albert.

And now, working through different seasons, seeds and soils, we invite you to join Christina in a hands-on gardening workshop.

Included in your Rooted: Early Spring Gardening getaway:

  • Deluxe Overnight Cottage Accommodations
  • A Welcome Dinner Reception in the Hoop House on the Monday night of your arrival, where you'll join our Rooted hosts
  • A Guided Farm Tour on Tuesday morning, led by Christina Albert, Beach Plum Farm's Director of Agriculture
  • Guided Gardening Seminars on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, led by expert instructors
  • A Yoga Session in the Kitchen Gardens on Wednesday morning

Cocktails With The Presidents

Congress Hall

Available February 9 through April 30, 2024

Imbibe like a head of state and enjoy historically-inspired cocktails in the Brown Room, as well as a copy of Mint Juleps with Teddy Roosevelt: A Complete History of Presidential Drinking by Mark Will-Weber.

read more

For over 200 years, Congress Hall has hosted esteemed guests—including four sitting United States Presidents. Naturally, these Heads of State each had favorite parts of their stay: Franklin Piece, in a 1855 visit, appreciated Congress Hall's festive Fourth of July Celebration; James Buchanan, in a 1867 visit, had a penchant for the sea air; Ulysses S. Grant, in a 1875 visit, appreciated Cape May's privacy; and Benjamin Harrison, in 1891, was so taken with Congress Hall that he set up his executive offices on the ground floor—where the Sea Spa is now—and established the hotel as his official Summer White House.

Indeed, these Presidential favorites demonstrate Congress Hall's timeless appeal—but, at the risk of editorializing, we'll posit that these gentlemen would have also appreciated a good drink in the current-day Brown Room. After all, who doesn't?

In the spirit of celebrating our history, we invite you to imbibe like a Head of State with our Cocktails with the Presidents package, featuring a themed menu of Brown Room cocktail selections sure to please any Commander in Chief.

Included in this package:
