|Peter Shields Inn & Restaurant, 1301 Beach Avenue, Cape May, NJ|
Faith: Good morning Mommy. Oops, I mean Jaybird.
Jaybird: What was the best part of your stay at the Peter Shields Inn?
Faith: It's so hard to choose, there are so many amazing things I loved about the PSI. But my favorite would have to be the afternoon wine and cheese. (Even though someone wouldn't let me have a glass of wine, but made me drink the ice tea...)
Jaybird: Why am I not surprised it's always about the food with you?Faith: Yep. I also loved the 24 hour concierge room, fully stocked with chips, soda, coffee, tea, juice, water and those COOKIES!
Jaybird: In your opinion, what makes the Peter Shield stand out from all the rest of the inns in Cape May?
Faith: First of all, those black and white awnings and the impressive long white columns on the porch. They are your first clue about how the PSI stands head and shoulders above the rest. Plus, the outstanding personal service can't be beat! The staff at the PSI are friendly and warm, and completely genuine. They make you feel welcome every second of your stay. Trust me, kids can tell when adults are being fake. Here, at the PSI, the staff embraces you from the beginning, right to the end. Plus, all of the little extras (like the afternoon tea, concierge room and super sized breakfast) are what make a big difference. The restaurant and Executive Chef Carl Messick is TOP NOTCH! Oh, and did I mention it's beautiful inside? The owner, Jeff, did an amazing job renovating the place. His attention to detail is fantastic. He found a way to have all the modern comforts, without taking away from the Victorian, old world spirit that is Cape May. I love that.
Jaybird: What room did you stay in, and what was your favorite thing about it?
Faith: We stayed in Room 9, on the third floor. My favorite part about the room (besides it being so close to the cookies) was after schlepping around Cape May in the hot sun all day, I was tired, sore and wanted to relax. I couldn't wait to get back to the comfort of our room, so I could jump into the claw foot tub! I really enjoyed taking a nice, long, hot bath in it. (Thank you for refraining from taking pictures of that!)
Jaybird: One last question, was there anything you didn't like about the Peter Shields Inn?
Faith: Yep. I didn't like that I had to leave!!
|This is Donna, who greeted us with a great big warm welcome and a grand tour of the PSI. The entire time we stayed, never once did I see her without that beautiful smile on her face!|
