The History of The Peninsula
Built in 1854, this historic Mansion was built by civil war surgeon Dr. John Wiley as his private residence. It remained in the Wiley/Wood family for many years until it was sold in the 1980’s. The building was in a state of deterioration until 1993, when Dr. Carolyn Crawford, a neonatologist, purchased the building and revived the grandeur of the Doctor’s Inn through a significant capital investment and a vision. During the early 2000’s, the building was purchased by Lorraine and John Nicholas who engaged in more renovations in 2005 and then again in 2014.
In 2021, the owners of The Cape Collection, purchased the property and knew that it had the potential to be one of Cape May County’s most unique Boutique B&B properties.
With a new name and a completely new look, The Peninsula is not only an elegant French country boutique B&B, but also is home to “Provence,” a Classic, French Modern restaurant featuring Executive Chef Adam Bowen.
