Our historic New Jersey inn has an eclectic décor that is both pleasing and comfortable with an utter lack of pretension or stiff formality that is sometimes found with luxury hotel accommodations. It is the perfect haven at the Jersey Shore near Cape May – relaxed, yet refined, and offering an artful mix of vintage charm and modern amenities. Furnishings, decorative items, and artwork were all collected over time and many rooms pay gentle homage to the lovely gardens that encircle the Inn and to the Innkeeper’s love of flowers – especially roses.
Hallways and stairwells throughout the Scarborough Inn function as an inn-house art gallery. A diverse collection of paintings, photographs, prints, and posters adorn the walls. Talented guests created some of these artworks – the Innkeepers’ children and grandchildren created some others!
One of the most appreciated amenities of the Scarborough Inn is its very convenient location in the heart of Ocean City’s Historic District. The Inn is just a 5-minute walk to the beach and boardwalk, equally close to Downtown Asbury Avenue shopping, many fine restaurants, and a variety of recreational, cultural, and historic diversions. Use our concierge services or materials to plan a vacation experience packed with activity and excitement or a restful and refreshing getaway, a romantic interlude, or a family reunion. The complimentary on-site parking means each guest room has a convenient space for a vehicle.
Extraordinary staff members greatly contribute to the Scarborough Inn experience, and include:
Hosts: Jane & Casey
Head Housekeeper: Maria
Head Cook: Linda
And an international staff of students who participate in a Work-Exchange Program and are employed at the Scarborough Inn during their summer hiatus from university (therefore, the students change annually).
