You've been fixin' to escape the stuffy Yankee scenery and soak up some Southern charm, but fitting a trip beyond the Mason-Dixon into your busy schedule would take some major planning, y'all.

Discover Dixie just a sashay away with today's extravagant Escape to Cape May's The Southern Mansion.

You'll feel like the belle of the ball when you and the southern gentleman you're sweet on spend two nights in the old-fashioned country comfort of a king room. Enjoy fixins like a double shower, chocolate-covered strawberries, a hand-painted keepsake ornament and postcards, gourmet breakfast served at your own private table, afternoon tea and socializing, a tour of the historic mansion, and a day at the inn's vineyard on a weeknight ($340) or weekend ($495).

Get a taste of that famous hospitality at the opulent 1860 manor, called "the only place to stay in Cape May" by The New York Times, that boasts the largest rooms and suites on the cape, award-winning gardens, and just a five-minute walk from some of the best beaches, shops, and restaurants in South Jersey.

Then drink in that Southern drawl beside the verdant 9,500 square-foot villa that is Willow Creek Winery as you spend a day learning about the innerworkings of a vineyard from grape to wine and sip away all life's little stresses.

Rebel against the demands of your day to day and visit a place where the pace is a little slower and life's as sweet as a Georgia peach.
