My wife and I love this place . We have stayed here several times .We enjoy Cape May and the Bacchus Inn. The innkeepers are great folks . We will continue to stay at this place cause it's fun to meet new people at the breakfast table in the morning Love it.


Such an amazing place to stay!

Let me start off by saying I have been going to Cape May my whole life and have always stayed in hotels/condos and after staying here, this is where I will be staying from now on! The Bacchus Inn was a beautiful home away from home for the few days we were staying in Cape May. It was clean, homey and the Inn keeper, John was so hospitable and kind. Among all of the great amenities that come along with staying at the Inn, breakfast was delicious every day, afternoon wine/snacks was great alomg with enjoying it on the porch and lastly, our room was fabulous! It was the perfect size with a private bathroom and a/c. I highly recommend staying here, it exceeded our expectations!


What a wonderful place to stay.

John makes everyone feel welcome. We have stayed there every summer for more than 10 years. It's not summer until we have visited Cape May and stayed at the Bacchus Inn.

As always we had a wonderful time in Cape May and the Bachus . John is a wonderful host , the breakfasts and afternoon wine and cheese are great. We will be back. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Tom and June from Beaver Falls


Favorite place on the Cape

it all starts with location. The Bacchus Inn is three blocks from the ocean, and 3 three blocks from Washington Street Mall (and if you're so inclined, 1 block from the Cape May Day Spa). The room are very nicely appointed, some with king sized beds, some with clawfoot tubs, and some rooms are suites--basically, there's something for everyone's taste. Breakfast's are always a treat, as they are tasty, and healthy. John is great for his hospitality, as well as his knowledge of all things Cape May--whether it be the wineries, the restaurants, or local events. Off street parking is available if you're staying in some of the fancier rooms. The inn has an outdoor shower, beach chairs, bicycles, and plenty of books and DVDs in case the rain is falling. And a highlight of every day is 4pm, when the guests gather on the porch to relax in a rocking chair, and enjoy some complimentary wine and cheese. Its no wonder that most guests are RETURNING guests. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

THE place to stay in Cape May

Great location. Great amenities (Bicycles, beach chairs, outdoor shower) Unpretentious.


Excellent Choice

The Bacchus Inn is an excellent choice. The bikes and beach chairs are extremely handy. Getting around on bike is much easier than on foot. The location is great, food and service was excellent and this is one of few places that has plentiful king beds with air conditioning in each room. Highly recommended.
