The Boarding House, Cape May’s newest hotel, hosted a "Topping Off" Ceremony and behind-the-scenes look with elected officials, community members, resort staff and family members on Wednesday, March 13, at the property location, 810 Lafayette St.

The ceremony included a beam signing by those in attendance, which included Cape May City Deputy Mayor Patricia Gray Hendricks; Cape May City Mayor Clarence F. Lear III; Special Advisor to Congressman Jeff Van Drew, John Amenhauser; and Cape May County Freeholders Jeffrey Pierson and Marie Hayes, who also presented commendations to Boarding House owners the Hirsch family, who have also owned and operated the Cape May Montreal Beach Resort since 1966.

The Boarding House, scheduled to open in May, is now taking reservations. The lodge will offer 11 distinctively designed guest rooms, each enhanced with décor that represents the shore town. To complete the Boarding House experience, the Hirsches have developed valuable partnerships with surrounding businesses that will allow guests to enjoy outdoor “ecotourism” activities such as biking, paddle boarding, surfing and more as part of their hotel stay.
