First, About Us...Pearl & Bill and their son Todd have owned The Eldredge House for 24 years. "Having the most historic and smallest inn on Cape May Island has been a great experience for us and we have met some amazing people some have been visiting us for over a decade now. Our relaxed style of inn keeping is popular, and while we don't offer High Tea Service in the Parlor, we will pick you up if you are stuck in the rain, need a designated driver or are running a bit late to that wedding". We also strive to be cruelty free in the products we purchase and our soaps and shampoos that we offer you. We recently have installed low energy lighting throughout the property to be as green as possible.
