Catch a Wave: Located on the very tip of the New Jersey shoreline, Victorian Cape May is home to The Mason Cottage, a BB listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With nine rooms to choose from, each with classic Victorian decor, The Mason Cottage is less than two blocks away from the beach and close to picturesque Cape May's many restaurants including Ristorante A CA MIA. It's a great home base from which to enjoy a quiet, romantic weekend at the Shore.

Get the Best of Both Worlds: Chestnut Hill on the Delaware satisfies both culture buffs and nature lovers alike. It's close to both Villa Milagro Vineyards and The Milford Bluffs, a rock formation and nature preserve. Or, take a short drive to Lambertville for antiquing and boutique shopping. Located on the banks of the Delaware River in Milford, Chestnut Hill on the Delaware features a wrap-around veranda and antique furnishings that evoke a simpler time of days gone by, while modern amenities such as the Summer Morning room's electric fireplace and double Jacuzzi lend a personal touch to every guest's experience.

Roll the Dice:  The fun is never too far when you stay at Ventnor's Carisbrooke Inn. Just a few miles away from Atlantic City's famous boardwalk, the Carisbrooke Inn provides a more integrated experience that lets guests combine quieter days at the beach with the happening nightlife of one of New Jersey's most exciting attractions. Boasting European hospitality, including evening wine and refreshments, the Carisbrooke has a range of rooms for a variety of budgets, including spa rooms with whirlpool tubs.

Shop, Wine, Dine, Explore: A postcard-perfect ode to classic Americana, the Parrot Mill Inn is nestled right on Chatham's Main Street. With the ultra-chic Mall at Short Hills nearby, guests can stay close for some tax-free (clothing and shoes) retail therapy. Or, they can easily take advantage of the inn's proximity to small yet super-sociable Hoboken for wining and dining at such hot spots as Bin 14.

Revert to a Natural State:  The bucolic charms of The Inn at Millrace Pond in Hope provides the perfect backdrop for guests to heed the call of the wild. Whether you go tubing down the Delaware Water Gap or explore the inn's 23 acres, it's the perfect setting to tackle the great outdoors. Or, enjoy an evening in. The food and ambience of the inn's Dining Room and Tavern is Zagat-rated.
