Highly recommend!!
One of the few remaining bed & breakfast inns in Cape May. What a shame! Lovely place with lots of atmosphere! Nancy who runs the place was so eager to please. Also the location is ideal. You can walk to so many places, including the beach, Washington St. mall & around town. Finally, sitting on the porch for a yummy breakfast or at night while the many carriage rides go by were sheer joyful moments!!

My new stay.
Could have not been more satisfied!! From a homemade breakfast every morning. To the afternoon surprise homemade snack, to sitting on the huge wrap around porch in our rocking chairs listening to the clip clop of the horses hooves prancing by. Our room was quiet, and secluded. Cleaniness, was an A+

Excellent Stay
We had an excellent time. Each room is individual and decorated differently. The staff always wore masks and were consistently cleaning. The parking on-site helped tremendously vs. trying to find on-street parking. All in all a really great a needed getaway that did not disappoint.
