Cape May Innkeepers
Jay and Mary Ann Gorrick

Trained at the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, New York, Innkeepers Mary Ann and Jay are delighted to serve gourmet, sit-down breakfasts and afternoon hors d’oeuvres to their guests.

The Innkeepers are Tri-State peopleborn and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania, lived 35 years in Poughkeepsie, NYand have always owned or rented at the Jersey Shore.

Each morning during your stay in Cape May, we offer our bed & breakfast guests a full sit-down hot breakfast. Have a cup of regular or decaf coffee made with beans we grind fresh each morning, specialty Gertrude Ford teas made in Poughkeepsie, NY, and your choice of juice. Enjoy Jay's homemade sweet bread (like his chocolate zucchini/coffee cakes) and hot main course prepared with our own home-grown herbs, local sausage, and seasonal local tomatoes, blueberries, strawberries, melons, beach plums, and blackberries. A few of our most-requested items are Jay's special blueberry pancakes, stuffed French toast, broccoli strata, an herb frittata, egg in the nest, puffed apple pancakes, and aebleskivers. Often B&B guests return home with some of our herbs from our garden!

After a day in Cape May, enjoy our afternoon hors d'oeuvres, which are all homemade: bruchetta, tomatoes and mozarella with creamy balsamic, Jay's cheese pennies, sausage squares, roast beef breads with chevre and red peppers, smoked salmon breads, and pita pizzas. We also serve a fruit, wine, and tea.

Jay was president of the Mid Hudson Food and Wine Society and taught wine courses at the local Poughkeepsie YWCA and at a local Hudson Valley Winery. He continues to maintain his private air-conditioned wine cellar at the Inn. Mary Ann's favorite white wine is a Riesling called Clean Slate.  Jay prefers one of the many reds that we serve, such as Chianti Badiolo, Reserva.

The recent Cape May Olive Oil Company tasting for afternoon hors d'oeuvres was extremely knowledgable and enjoyable!

Inn at the Park Cape May NJ Romantic B&BSteve and Cheryl Young left us this holiday poem in our guestbook,

Twas two weeks before Christmas
And Steve said, "Hark!"

We need to go visit the Inn
at the Park.

So we packed up the car the
very next day

And traveled to Jersey to see
Mary Ann and Jay.

The inn was aglow with bright
Christmas lights,

And Jay's food, as usual, was
just a delight.

Thanks to you both for some
pre-Christmas cheer.

We look forward to seeing you
in the upcoming year.

     Have a blessed Christmas
     and a healthy New Year.
