Happy Fall! Stay with us this autumn in Cape May and find out why September and October are called “local summer” on the Shore. With beautiful weather and smaller crowds, early fall is one of the best times to visit.
At the Montreal, you’ll find our great summer amenities and perks available for enjoyment through much of the fall, like our heated oceanfront pool (open through October 10) and Harry’s of Cape May, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day except Mondays and Tuesdays.

The Gloomy Apparition
Here’s a murder mystery that’ll keep you on your toes. Helen was looking forward to a relaxing stay, alone, in a remote seaside town when things took a turn for the supernatural. Now, Helen finds herself at the center of a mystery she needs help solving. Join other amateur sleuths at the Emlen Physick Estate for this immersive theatrical event and solve the mystery of The Gloomy Apparition!
Magic and Mystery House Tour
Relive the Victorian era and learn about period fascination with magic, illusion, the mysterious, and the odd. Hear about the Great Lafayette, the world’s greatest magician, Houdini, the astounding escape artist, Ionia, the Goddess of Mystery, Pepper’s Ghost, is it real, or just an Illusion? Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper, and much more! Tickets are limited to facilitate social distancing.
Ghosts of Cape May Trolley Tour
Craig McManus, Cape May’s resident Psychic medium, is back to relay his paranormal findings on a 30-minute trolley tour through village streets. No one knows our resident spirits better. Learn about these spooky happenings during beautifully crisp fall evenings.
Annual Scarecrow Alley
The grounds of Cape May’s original haunted house, the Emlen Physick Estate, are now transformed for the spooky Halloween season. Scarecrow Alley is a highlight of the Estate’s ghosts and ghouls’ decorations. Walk the grounds and vote for your favorite ghoulishly gruesome or foolishly funny scarecrow.
