Gold Key – Emerging Hotel Concept
The Highlights: Tucked into a corner of beach community Cape May, New Jersey, the Boarding House is a 1950s-era, 11-room hotel that brings something new and authentic to the town. Inspired by the time when this type of hotel was popular and would attract beach-loving guests, it has an old-fashioned coastal vibe. All spaces within the Boarding House have beach-oriented finishes such as reclaimed wood, wicker, rope, concrete tile, and navy blue ikat. Surf-related objects and vintage-inspired photos add to the midcentury vacation feel.
