Cavalier Shores began when the local businessmen building the Cavalier Hotel included plans for a compact neighborhood to the north. Completed in April 1927, the Cavalier was the last word in luxury, attracting U.S. Presidents, plutocrats, movie stars and literary lights, some of whom arrived by private rail car. They came to relax in the salubrious salt air, hunt and fish, ride horseback, play golf, dress for dinner and dance to the era’s top bands.The ninety-year-old neighborhood still boasts a number of its original homes and all of its charm. While the train tracks and depot are long gone, the brick walkway linking train and hotel still transects a neighborhood where the evening stroll remains a popular pastime. With the beloved hotel’s restoration to its former glory, residents will again enjoy the benefits of living beside a world-class resort.
