Lisa and John accomodated my boyfriend and I last minute and made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The room was clean, the bed comfy, and the bathroom was beautifully remodelled. The cool night breeze made it perfect to throw open the windows and enjoy the fall air. We recommend this B&B to all those needing to unwind and relax for a day or two.

The entire experience (innkeepers, service, ambience, room, dining, location, etc.) at the Bacchus Inn was wonderful. It was my second visit, and it was as great as the first one 2 years ago. John and Lisa are awesome hosts. I recommend it to everyone and plan to return.

We always stay at the Bacchus Inn when in Cape May. John and Lisa are so helpful and friendly, the food is great, and the rooms are delightful. We enjoy using the beach chairs and bikes!

My wife and I go to Cape May at least once a year, sometimes twice. We only stay at the Bacchus. John and Lisa are the perfect hosts. Both are totally knowledgeable about Cape May restaurants, etc. They are also both engaging individuals who treat their guests like friends. Lisa's breakfasts are always tasty, and John's stories always interesting. Afternoon wine and cheese on the porch is a real plus.

Loved our weekend stay at the Bacchus Inn. John and Lisa are excellent hosts and will sit and talk to you about all topics. The wine and cheese hour at 4:00 is a great way to meet the other guests in the house and compare notes on restaurants, bars, etc. We loved the fact that there are plenty of bikes available for use and we took advantage to cruise the friendly town of Cape May. Our room (# 1) is as advertised on the website and was very clean. The innkeepers definitely take pride in their home and it shows. Thank You for a wonderful time!

We have stayed at the Bacchus Inn every June 5,6,7 for the past 5 years.John and Lisa - and now their darling two boys - have been our hosts. They make you feel like family every time. The breakfasts are inpeccable and delicious - every detail attended to. John is a wealth of information about restaurants, history, and just about everything - so much fun.

We loved our stay at the Bacchus Inn. For the past five years each May we take a mini vacation to Cape May. We have stayed at different B&B's and think we have now found our favorite. John & LIsa were great hosts, the location is great, good breakfast, clean rooms, bikes, and don't forget the wine and cheese hour! We had a wonderful time and would stay there again.

We stayed in the Sonoma Valley, it wouldn't have been our first choice but we planned last minute on a whim. The room was just what we needed to get away, didn't care their wasn't a TV cause we wanted to be outside in the sunshine anyway. The bathroom was small but really didn't care about that either, it was in the room which was fantastic - excellent value room to stay in. Everything seemed clean, the bed was very comfy. The breakfast was amazing and enough to keep you full until Dinner - that way you can skip lunch! Didn't do the wine and cheese but definitely look forward to that next time. We didn't have parking with our room - gotta give something up for the value! But it really wasn't that big a deal, we parked across the street. Were definitely going back summer 2011!
4.6 on April 17, 2011
We keep going back because we have such a great time each time we go. The breakfasts are out of this world! The rooms are always clean and John and Lisa are great! Bacchus Inn offers off street parking with many of the rooms and is within walking distance to the beach and to Washington Street.

The owners were great. Friendly and attentive. The daily wine hour was fun. Good selections of wines and cheeses. And the owners showed flexibility and a willingness to go beyond what was expected. I would stay here again.

I was very satisfied and pleasantly suprised by my recent stay at the Bacchus Inn. The breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were excellent and service was great. Location is very convenient and the rooms were clean and in good condition. Staff was very knowledgeable about Cape May area and made excellent dinner recommendations and tour recommendations. I would definitely return.

Everything was lovely. TV was a little small to see, and we didn't know our bathroom would be outside of our suite. Other than that, it was very nice and the innkeepers were great.

I gave this trip to my boyfriend as a anniversary/christmas gift. We had an AMAZING time. We went there to celebrate the new year, also. We both truly felt that this trip was everything we were looking for and more. Needless to say we were very happy when we left. In fact, I did not even want to leave. John and Lisa have really created something extraordinary with their inn. This was my/our first visit to a bed and breakfast, but it was everything we hoped for. The beds and the food was what really impressed us. The beds were huge and fluffy, cozy and wonderful. And the food was all homemade by Lisa in the kitchen next to the dining room. Now, I enjoy cooking and my dishes even come out well, but Lisa's dishes were EXCEPTIONAL. It was the intricate herbal flavors that really made her breakfasts and hot hors d'oeuvres stand out. John and Lisa have created a warm and inviting inn that specializes in romance, love, and charm and we are completely grateful for what they have done here.

Once again John and Lisa made my wife and I feel special. When we checked in it was like catching up with old friends. Like old friends we all picked up where we left off in September. We enjoyed Cape May as much in December as we did in September. The personalized service that John and Lisa provide is outstanding. From restaurant suggestions to afternoon wine & cheese they are there to make you feel relaxed! Lisa even gave my wife and I coupons to a local restaurant which seems to be a hidden treasure. John and Lisa take the time to get to know their guests and their needs. They understand what it takes to please guests and that is what will keep us coming back to the Bacchus Inn.

This was our first time staying at a B&B in Cape May, and we came down after spending New Year's eve in AC. First impression, house and cottage across the street were beautiful, and the owners John and Lisa were super friendly and so welcoming! We opted for the least expensive room available, which was cute and comfortable. Wine and cheese hour was the best, and breakfast was even better! Already planning our next trip down :)

The Bacchus Inn is a very warm victorian Bed and Breakfast whose hosts were outstanding.The breakfasts were awesome and we are looking forward to going back.We will recommend this place to everyone.

Our host was very accommodating. He immediately made all three couples feel welcome. Breakfasts were tasty and not your humdrum regulars.

Our family came from north and south to celebrate an anniversary. We loved being together at the Bacchus Inn and the service, food, hospitality, and rooms were wonderful. The Innkeepers were so gracious and provided any information we needed. You can't go wrong staying at the Bacchus.

John and Lisa are great hosts. The Bacchus Inn is a lovely place with beautiful antique furnishings.

My husband and I have stayed at the Bacchus Inn many times now. The rooms are comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoy that wine is served in the afternnoon along with delicious cookies and crackers and cheese. The breakfasts are amazing as are the innkeepers John and Lisa. Within walking distance to the beach and the Washington Mall. Perfect little getaway!

The innkeepers at Bacchus are among the nicest hosts I've ever stayed with. Food was top notch, and they went out of their way to accommodate our early-morning needs. Mattress was sub-par and I would recommend its replacement. Nonetheless, we were upgraded to a lovely suite without asking... these are really wonderful people, and the house is a treasure.

A particularly nice B&B, with very friendly owners. The wine & cheese hour (ours extended to nearly 3 hours...) was so much fun and really sets this place apart. We plan on making the Bacchus Inn a yearly destination.
4.4 on November 03, 2010
John & Lisa could have been more hospitable. We stay here on our anniversary and found it to be a perfect place to stay. Close to the shopping and beach. I would definitely recommend this place anyone. Breakfast wasn't my cup of tea but then I'm pretty picky about what I eat, everyone else at the inn seemed to enjoy the food.

Great weekend stay, John was quite knowledgeable about where to go and what to do in Cape May. Will be staying there again.

We have been going to Cape May for years, we have stayed in hotels and other B&B's. One year we tried the Bacchus Inn and we have not stayed anywhere else since. It has become our home away from home. The morning breakfasts are delicious, Lisa is phenominal cook. The portions are generous so that the next time you are hungery just happens to be when it's time for the daily wine and cheese hour at 4pm. And for dinner...they have sample menus for you to view and John has wonderful insight on the restaurants to help you make your trip even more fullfilling. The casual relaxed atmosphere is exactly what you want on vacation. Sitting on the wrap around porch rocking in the rocking chairs, sipping on wine and enjoying the friendly atmosphere adds to the experience of Cape May. They offer beach chairs and bikes which just lessens your packing and adds a bonus to your vacation. On the day we check out, we hit the beach for the balance of the day. The Bacchus Inn has an outside shower and dressing room available for guests to use, so we shower and then head home, yet another added amenity other places don't offer you. We highly recommend the Bacchus Inn and once you try it, you won't want to go stay anywhere else while in Cape May.

My girlfriend and I had not been to Cape May since 2004 and the previous B&B we stayed at recommended The Bacchus Inn. We hit the jackpot with Lisa and John. Our stay was wonderful and we will be back next year and will stay at The Bacchus Inn.

Cape May is my favorite shore destination and after trying several accomodations, I found The Bacchus Inn and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The house is a beautifully restored Victorian with tasteful decor and modern amenities -- gotta love that wraparound porch where everyone gathers for wine and cheese in the afternoons! Lisa's breakfasts are scrumptuous and the fact that they provide beach chairs and bikes makes it easy to pack up the car and save a few dollars on daily rentals. John and Lisa are the perfect hosts, very knowledgable about restaurants and activities in Cape May and naturally hospitable. The Bacchus Inn is in a great location, too, just a couple blocks from the downtown area and a couple blocks from the beach on a lovely tree-lined street. I highly recommend it!

I stayed here with my husband the weekend following our wedding as a mini-honeymoon. We had never stayed in a bed-and-breakfast before, so we weren't sure what to expect. From the moment we arrived, we had an amazing experience. John, the host, was incredibly friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home. Lisa made AMAZING food, I'm still drooling while I think about the cinnamon french toast she made! The rooms were cozy and comfortable. Our favorite part was the wine and cheese hour!! Can't wait to come back and stay again!

This was our third stay at The Bacchus Inn. Our room was very clean and comfortable and I can't say enough about the hospitality of the innkeepers, Lisa and John. The breakfast is outstanding as are the wine, cheese and cookies in the afternoon. Bikes, beach towels and beach chairs are available to use. We love it!
5 on September 13, 2010
John and Lisa are very welcoming and always around to help answer any questions you may have. Room was spotless, beds are extremely comfortable. Plenty of hot water, and great water pressure. The afternoon wine and chesese is a nice added touch. Breakfast was yummy with plebty of fresh fruit. Beach chairs,beach towels, and bikes are available in amble supply. Im already planning my next trip.

My partner and I have been going up to Cape Cod for the past 20 years and this summer we thought we give Cape May a try. Well, the Bacchus Inn has made us converts. No matter how much you may like the area you are in, the B&B sets the tone for your whole experience and John and Lisa set the right tone for us with Clean, nicely appointed accomodations, wonderful breakfasts that look as wonderful as they taste, afternnon gatherings with wine and cheese, and host of other amenities that made our stay very enjoyable. We have since returned to the Inn for Labor Day weekend and we bought friends with us who also loved the Inn. We are now in the middle of planning another long weekend get away for the fall and the Bacchus Inn will certainly be our lodging of choice. If you are looking for a wonderful sea side town with tons of history, miles of great beach, great selection of food/restaurants and shopping. Cape May is the place for you. If you want to add a bit of comfort and relaxation to your trip, make a reservation at the Bacchus Inn. Wonderful accomodations, wonderful hosts, wonderful experience. You will come back again and again and again. J&M

The Bacchus inn is a fantastic bed and breakfast. Lisa and John did a great job of making your stay enjoyable with their energy and enthusiasm. The food was amazing and the wine selection was great. I highly reccomend this place for couples.

A calming place to melt away the stress of extremely cold weather and horrendous car problems. John and Lisa were right there to help us out and make sure that we didn't miss our daughter's Coast Guard graduation after the car went in the shop. Thank's so much! This is definitely the B & B you want to stay in when you visit Cape May! It's great!

The inn keepers, John and Lisa, made you feel as though you had been friends with them for years. We felt so comfortable in the house and enjoyed the many extras that were available to us. The breakfasts were absolutely out of this world!! This B&B was without a doubt the BEST one we have ever stayed at and we can not wait to go back.
