In the late 1960s, Gus Andy and his family opened a motor lodge in Cape May, a beach town of dubious reputation, an era when the expectations of vacationers were basic – air conditioning, color TV and a pool. With a beautiful beachfront location, La Mer flourished. By the mid-1970s, the resort was a National Historic Landmark as visitors thronged to this seaside town to enjoy the beach, whimsical Victorian architecture and a burgeoning choice of trendy restaurants.
Fifty years later, the La Mer Beachfront Resort is still providing luxury accommodations. The hotel now includes the Pier House, an upscale restaurant that has replaced the former Water’s Edge as part of the resort property. Lounge by the pool, relax on the beach just steps away and discover the ambiance of Cape May, the nation’s oldest seaside resort. 1317 Beach Drive, Cape May; 609-884-9090;

The heated salt water pool is surrounded by native landscaping and it just might be the first to open in season and the last to close.
All suites are apartment-style with full kitchens, dining/living areas and decks with room for two to five guests. Custom lounge chairs and umbrellas are waiting for you right on the Stockton Beach just steps away. How about a mobile beach kit – stocked with coolers, mugs, towels, games and more!
